I have the Disneyland itch. 

Here's how it works. We are usually Disneyland visitors about once a year or once every 18 months. And I can tell it's time to go to Disneyland because suddenly, I get the Disneyland itch. What is the Disneyland itch you may wonder? It's the craving to start your morning off with a Disneyland churro. You may be able to smell Main Street when you start to think about planning a trip. A Mickey Mouse ice cream sandwich sounds really delicious. You start visualizing the route that you will take between your favorite rides and you might even have some Disneyland parade music playing through your mind.

If you're feeling the Disneyland itch like me, 2022 is the time to make your travel plans.

 The "Main Street Electrical Parade" and Fireworks Galore

I still remember the sounds of the "Main Street Electrical Parade" from when I was growing up, devouring a Mickey Mouse ice cream sandwich while I watched all of the glowing floats glide by. The good news is that this can become a childhood memory for your own children, because the imaginative "Main Street Electrical Parade" will be lighting up Disneyland for the parade's 50th anniversary year. Guests will also be able to experience "Fantastic!", the "world of Color" and the "Disneyland Forever" fireworks spectacular.
