We (family of 4) are planning our trip to California, with a second half of our week at Disneyland. We try to go each year if possible. We haven't been at 4th of July, so this is new for us. I did read on Facebook that it is insane on the actual 4th of July. So, I'm tempted to not even try to go in the park and just sleep in that day, maybe a non park character breakfast, pool day or something like that.
1. If we decide to just do fireworks that night, should we head toward the security area and watch from there?
2. Has anyone done INSIDE either park on the 4th, and is it really as crowded as I've heard?
3. If we're in the Anaheim area, is there something else patriotic to do during the day?
This holiday is bittersweet for me. We used to celebrate as a big crowd with my dad. He died almost 2 years ago. So last year we went away on vacation as well on the 4th just to get away, doing it again as well. (I got the news about my dad's death while inside Disneyland, minutes before a character breakfast reservation....sigh).
Anyhow, much appreciated to anyone who can give some tips!
