Celebrating a Birthday at DisneyCelebrating a Birthday at Disney
August 20, 2015
We are a family that loves all things Disney, so much so that 10 years ago we became Disney Vacation Club members and so our wonderful journey began!

Just this past year, I decided to put a different spin on our Disney vacations by incorporating a birthday celebration for a different family member in each vacation. With eight immediate family members ranging in age from 2 to 56, the excitement of giving each one an unforgettable celebration designed especially for them began to swirl in my mind!

Disneyland's Photo Pass +Disneyland's Photo Pass +
August 04, 2015
For many, if not most, vacationers, photos are among the most cherished souvenirs from their travels. That certainly is true of guests on Disney vacations, myself included. And now that we are going to Disneyland for the first time, I have been planning for these photos - choosing outfits and iconic locations and making character-dining reservations.

The first decision I made was whether we wanted to purchase PhotoPass+, a product that allows you to buy all the professional photos you have taken in the parks for one price.


Packing Tips for a Disneyland VacationPacking Tips for a Disneyland Vacation
August 04, 2015
I feel like a novice Disney traveler now that I'm preparing to pack for our first trip to Disneyland and D23 in August. I have to figure out what we will need in an unfamiliar hotel room and theme parks for an extended stay. And it's a lot of stuff for four people!

I have never been to Anaheim, but from what I can tell, the weather this time of the year is just slightly cooler than Orlando during the day.

Planning a Visit to Disneyland!Planning a Visit to Disneyland!
July 30, 2015
We're going to Disneyland (for the first time) this summer! Those words are just as magical to my family as any other, even though we are Florida residents and spend a lot of time at Walt Disney World.

Sure, there are some duplicate attractions, but there is a lot we haven't experienced, which means we can't wait to hit the turnstiles! We want to make the most of this special visit to the West Coast, so we are preparing to be theme-park commandos -- visitors who have a touring plan to make the most of their limited time on vacation at a Disney theme park.

As a veteran of the Orlando parks, I was prepared to research which Disney hotels have the best pools for the kids and jump on the dining reservations at 180 days out from our visit. But, guess what? It's a whole different vacation plan out in California; my years of planning here in Orlando don't overlap much with how things are done in Anaheim. It's been a learning experience for me. With the D23 Expo in Anaheim on the horizon, I thought other Walt Disney World veterans might be planning a first-time visit to Disneyland, too, so I'd like to share what knowledge I've gained.
