  1. Thanks so much for the update- we are taking our kids (5,8) to Disneyland for the first time ever mid-October. Any special tips or ideas for the visit considering the Holiday theming ? We’re visiting from Israel, so they are quite unfamiliar with the concept of Halloween…

    Dora – Be sure to stop by the Halloween Carnival at the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree. It is usually not that crowded and you can spend time with the Disney characters without a long wait and they are roaming around interacting with guests. The pumpkin carver’s creations since they are Disney characters and magic show should also translate well without a Halloween background.

  2. Just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your posts. We are going to Disneyland for the first time in February for my husbands 50th birthday. Can’t wait to experience everything in person that I’ve enjoyed so much through your pictures! Thank you!
