Returning to the Land Walt Built

2021-05-07T22:19:28-04:00May 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

2019-08-18T21:58:50-04:00August 18, 2019|Disneyland|0 Comments

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 [...]

Savi’s Workshop

2019-06-13T09:36:11-04:00June 13, 2019|Hollywood Studios|0 Comments

Savi’s Workshop is a little bit hard to find.  Since the Black Spire Outpost is under the protection of the First Order, the Resistance and Force sensitive beings have to remain hidden and out of sight.  The only way to find the shop is by looking for the Blue Lightsaber Banner outside the store.                                 Savi is very important to the Force, and was one of the original Gatherers.  The Gatherers are a group of people who have dedicated their lives to restoring balance in [...]

2019-06-10T08:34:57-04:00June 10, 2019|Disney News, Disney Travel, Disneyland, Galaxy Edge|0 Comments

Exploring a new destination, new world or new Galaxy and immersing yourself in the culture of its citizens is an immensely rewarding experience. But it can be even more rewarding if we take care to observe the customs of the places we visit. And visiting Batuu is no different:  the locals are essentially hosting you on their home Planet! Here are 5 pointers that I picked up on my recent travels to the Black Spire Outpost on the planet of Batuu! First of all, the people of Batuu are Batuuans and they speak Batuuese.  It sounds very similar to English; [...]

Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party

2017-11-30T06:00:42-05:00November 30, 2017|Magic Kingdom|0 Comments

I love fireworks! Who doesn’t? The fireworks displays at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom are legendary. They just keep getting better and better as technology improves. The emotions those displays invoke are powerful and create lasting family memories. That’s part of why we all love going to Walt Disney World over and over again. The current regular season fireworks display is called Happily Ever After. It is hands down one of the absolute best fireworks displays I’ve ever witnessed. It is only rivaled by my very first fireworks display at Disneyland and by the 60th Anniversary of Disneyland fireworks display. [...]
