Anaheim – Day 7 of a 8-Day California Road Trip
We left Santa Barbara early on Day 7. Day 7’s purpose was to spend the whole day at Disneyland California Adventures in Anaheim!
The drive to Anaheim from Santa Barbara is just over 2 hours (longer depending on traffic). We stopped at Lee’s Sandwiches (the Brookhurst Street one) to pick up Vietnamese sandwiches for our day at Disneyland. Lee’s Sandwiches is good, but I definitely prefer my local Vietnamese sandwich spot in Vancouver.
From there, Disneyland is about a 15 minute drive. We spent the entire day at Disneyland California Adventures, it was so much fun and not as busy due to the time of the year. At the park, I had to eat the turkey leg (I’ve been told it’s actually ham) and the churros! Here’s an iconic photo of the ferris wheel and roller coaster:
We left Disneyland California Adventures around 10pm and stopped at Kaiba Japanese Ramen, Sushi & Grill to pick up dinner. The restaurant is drive through only after 9pm. The food was good and portions quite big. A good alternative to the late night fast food spots like McDonald’s or In-N-Out Burger. We ordered the ramen, gyoza, and dynamite roll to take back to our hotel for dinner.
