On the 9th (Tue), find something for the whole family at Disneyland Park. Here are some ideas for day two: browse the different shops at The Grove, then stop by Whimsic Alley, then kick back and relax at Venice Beach and Boardwalk, and finally admire the majestic nature at Santa Monica State Beach.
