Then there is the Train! What kid doesnt like a choochoo train??? seriously, it is a universal love of almost all children. The whistles, the swaying cars, the scenery, tunnels, etc. It is a cornucopia of delights for the kids. The nice thing about this train is that they even have a roof, so you get shade!!! very very nice on a hot day.
This is somewhat of a short ride... but so what the kids will love it... but i bet they would rather go over to ride the horses more...Recommended for:

About a 20 minute drive from the condo. Irvine Park is actually located in the city of Orange and should not be missed! The perfect place to offset the madness at Disneyland! Just a beautiful, serene, all round great park to take the kids. It's $3 per car to get in, or $5 on weekends, although I would recommend you try to visit mid-week, since weekends can get busy. Pack a picnic or buy some food at the snack bar. Be sure to bring some bread for the ducks. The railroad is pricey, but cute and kids just love it. They also have pony rides, various playgrounds, a small but wonderful, local zoo, bike and boat rentals and a nature center. There are also horse stables on-site and you are going to love watching the peacocks that roam around the park. The park has 2 lakes in the center which I think is the most beautiful area and our girls like to climb on the rocks below the bridge that connects them while I set up a blanket for a picnic. Bike rentals are not cheap, but still worth it. The kids love that they get to try out tandem bikes and the park is big enough that you can easily ride around for an hour. Highly recommend this place!Recommended for:
