    During your next visit to Disneyland, be sure to set aside time for a rejuvenating visit to the Tenaya Stone Spa at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel & Spa.

Be sure to look up at the tree root chandelier. Before entering the spa itself, guests will select a stone from [...]

Returning to the Land Walt Built

2024-01-03T14:34:16-05:00May 7, 2021|Disney Travel, Disneyland|0 Comments

While I love Walt Disney World, there is something special about Disneyland. Being able to walk the same pathways as Walt himself is a remarkable feeling. I visited Disneyland for the first time in 2015 for the 60th anniversary and immediately fell in love. Last December, my family moved to Monterey, California. We frequently move for my husband’s job and have had the opportunity to live in some beautiful places over the years. In July 2020, we found out California would be our next destination, and to say I was ecstatic is an understatement. We had been in Florida for [...]

Shadow Silhouettes

When someone mentions “Disneyland” or “Walt Disney World,” what’s the first thing that pops into your head? The price? Mickey Mouse? The castle? For me, it’s 2 things... churros and Mickey Mouse ears. Random, I know, but is there anything cuter than a little kid eating a churro while wearing their Mickey Mouse ears? The first time I went to Disney was as an adult, and let me tell you, my head is too big for their cute ear headbands and Mickey ears. This was devastating as I had always wanted them. Seeing that I was Queen of Hearts head [...]

First Timer’s Guide: The Cove Bar

2023-10-06T22:09:22-04:00October 31, 2017|Disneyland|0 Comments

  When I found out that I would be going to Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure, the first thing I knew that I wanted to do was go to the Cove Bar, located on Disney’s California Adventure side. Mainly because all the drinks looked so colorful and I heard that they didn't skimp on the alcohol. And man was I pleasantly surprised. When you first show up to the Cove Bar there's a wait like any normal restaurant, except this is just a bar/lounge area. The Cove Bar also doesn't have a reservation line. You just have to wait. I [...]

Beyond Disneyland

2023-10-06T22:01:12-04:00October 5, 2017|Disneyland|0 Comments

One of my favorite topics about Disney is what to do outside of Disney! Because there is so much more to do in Orlando or Anaheim that just come to the parks and leave! This time, our Disney adventure took us into the areas around Los Angeles! Our first side trip was the Orange County Beach Bus Tour! The OC Beach Bus Tour is a tour is provided by Anaheim Tour Company and is an excursion that you can add on to your Disneyland Package. Your Travel With The Magic Specialist can do this for you! We loved it! We [...]
