You've been to Disneyland before. You've ridden all three Mountains (Space, Splash, and Big Thunder), had a Mickey ice cream bar, and seen the Fantasmic show. You've ridden the classics like Mad Tea Party, the Matterhorn, and Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. You've had the "It's a Small World" song stuck in your head for an entire day. You've even tried the Monte Cristo at the Blue Bayou Restaurant. But now you're thinking of planning your next trip, and you're wondering if there are any experiences you've missed before, right? Yes, indeed! Here are my top 5 experiences that you may [...]

Flo’s V8 Cafe at Disney’s California Adventure

2015-04-15T06:00:00-04:00April 15, 2015|Disneyland|0 Comments

GOOD (FAST) FOOD WITH A VIEW Disney's Cars Land area in California Adventure is so incredibly well-done, you absolutely must go see it! The attention to detail is amazing. And this is also true at Radiator Springs' local eatery, Flo's V8 Cafe. From the moment you walk up, you feel transported into the Cars movies. I half expected to see an animated vehicle roll up to order some food here! Once inside, the place seems like an old fashioned soda-fountain establishment from the 50's or 60's. You can eat in one of the dining rooms, but an even better idea [...]

2015-04-01T06:00:00-04:00April 1, 2015|Disneyland|0 Comments

California Adventure’s Paradise Pier is home to the flagstaff Mickey Fun Wheel, recognized by Disney fans big and small. Because of Paradise Pier’s famous attractions like World of Color, Ariel’s Grotto Restaurant, and California Screamin’, the crowds can really pack in. Follow my tips for smooth sailing around the Pier! Tip #1 Head to the Pier first thing in the morning Crowds are lowest in the morning at the Pier, yet it has the most crowd-drawing attractions. Toy Story Midway Mania and Ariel’s Undersea Adventure are the newest attractions in the Pier, and you can’t get a FastPass for them. [...]

2015-03-06T06:00:00-05:00March 6, 2015|Disneyland|0 Comments

Many pick the Paradise Pier Hotel at the Disneyland Resort because of its awesome location and affordable price!

Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort

2015-02-20T06:00:00-05:00February 20, 2015|Disneyland|0 Comments

What is Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort? I certainly didn’t know until I experienced it for the first time. My basic definition of Downtown Disney is this: it’s an outdoor shopping mall, Disney Style! You will find amazing shopping opportunities like World of Disney, incredible restaurants like Rainforest Café, Tortilla Joe’s and Ralph Brennan’s Jazz Kitchen, entertainment like ESPN Zone and street performers. Disney hires the street performers so they’re not just random entertainers trying to make a buck. These are officially Disney sanctioned street performers trying to make a buck, but they’re usually pretty talented, too. You’ll find [...]

FastPass at Disneyland/California Adventure Will Help You Go Fast!

2014-12-17T06:00:00-05:00December 17, 2014|Disneyland|0 Comments

Most of you know that I love Disneyland. I don’t want Walt Disney World to feel slighted by me, but I love Disneyland just a little more. One of the reasons I feel this way is because of the FastPass system at Disneyland. There are pros and cons to the FastPass systems at both parks, but the system at Walt Disney World is a bit more complicated. At Walt Disney World, you definitely need the help of a travel agent (call me, I’m glad to oblige) to navigate the system. The system at Disneyland is just a bit simpler. (By [...]

Cafe Orleans at Disneyland Park

2014-12-03T06:00:00-05:00December 3, 2014|Dining, Disneyland, Disneyland|0 Comments

Located in the heart of New Orleans Square, Cafe Orleans serves up delicious creole-cajun cuisine with a charming atmosphere. Home to the famous Monte Cristo sandwich, this picturesque restaurant offers scrumptious entrees and beautiful vistas. Cafe Orleans is a great alternative to the Blue Bayou. It is easier to get a reservation and comes at a cheaper price. While Cafe Orleans doesn’t offer views of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, guests can view a much larger ship – the Sailing Ship Colombia! Princess Tiana also makes appearances in New Orleans, so you may catch a glimpse of her walking by [...]
