When I learned that the ‘OPA! A Celebration of Greece’ celebration was coming to the Disneyland Resort I was excited to bring my children to experience the festivities. Having some Greek in my blood, it is important to share my heritage with my children, and Disneyland created a magical celebration of my heritage this weekend.

The children spent time coloring while we savored in some traditional Greek cuisine. There was also wine tastings available at Paradise Garden as part of the celebration.

After enjoying all the rides at Disney California Adventure Park, we skipped over to Disneyland to attend more of the Greek Festival activities. With “It’s a Small World,” as the background of the celebration, people were dancing throughout the streets of Disneyland. It was just like any celebration that my children would have gotten to experience on the streets of Greece.
