Disneyland Tips For A Magical Visit


You are visiting the happiest place on earth, so take the time to notice it. It is also the busiest place on earth, so don’t count how many times you make it on each ride. Appreciate how friendly the Cast Members are, notice how clean the park is, despite how many people are there. Take a moment and marvel at the attention to detail in every aspect of the park, from the colors, sights, sounds, smells and architecture. Enjoy everything you can at the park right down to all the delicious foods like the churro. Immerse yourself in all the Disney stories throughout the park. I look at Disneyland as a living piece of art. When Walt Disney created Disneyland he said it would never be finished. That is part of the magic, as it continues to grow and expand, it continues to inspire people with wonderful memories. If you’re a kid, the park is pure magic. If you’re an adult, it lets you enjoy being a kid all over again. Here are some great tips we have discovered over the years:

Physiotherapy Third Week

PHYSIO3sSwimming is the other great activity for regaining strength in your leg. After a few weeks of stretching, swimming and bike riding, it is now time to recycle those crutches. Best to recycle them to another person who needs them.  It has taken a few weeks to eliminate your limp, but now, we are ready to get back to regular business and take that vacation we missed! Next stop, Disneyland!

Physiotherapy First Week

PHYSIO2-DSC08830FsCorbin has a very stiff leg. It will take a lot of stretching for his leg to get back to normal and he is able to begin walking without a limp. He will also need to continue using crutches for a little longer. When a broken leg is cast many Doctors will bend the knee when they set the cast which makes it easier to maneuver with crutches. The down side is, when the cast comes off, it takes a little longer to straighten your leg again. However the down side to having your leg cast straight at the knee is that it would be impossible to use crutches and you would be forced to use a wheelchair only, while recovering. Fortunately Corbin’s cast was bent at the knee, so, let the stretching begin. The best method to help stretch the leg back is by using an empty milk jug filled with water. Hang the milk jug with a bungee cord at the knee for 20 minute intervals a few times a day. Here we are, back on the couch, thank goodness for Netflix…
