Reviews of Disneyland’s most popular character meals

Posted on
Who could visit Disneyland and not meet some of their favorite characters? One of the easiest, and perhaps most efficient, way to do so is by attending meals where the characters circulate among tables rather than standing in lines in the theme parks. On our recent trip to Disneyland, we booked three character-dining meals: Storytellers Cafe, Ariel's Grotto and Goofy's Kitchen.

Bullseye Stallion Stampede

After Disney’s California Adventure made over Paradise Pier, boardwalk games became more exciting with Disney themes. By feverishly rolling balls in a skeeball-style game, players earn points depending on which hole the ball falls through.

Like those boardwalks, when night falls a … Continue reading "Disney Pic of the Week: Paradise Pier"

Disney Pic of the Week: Paradise Pier

The Paradise Pier area of Disney’s California Adventure reminded me of the New Jersey Shore boardwalks. Which is exactly what Disney wants you to think of Paradise Pier. The attractions, however, are most definitely Disney.

Disney Pic of the Week – Flags and Banners

Posted on
As if Disney parks don’t transfer your mind to another place enough as it is, the extra touches found everywhere add even more elements to really cement happy thoughts. Some of those smaller and not necessarily noticed items are banners and flags that flap in the breeze. I for one have always wanted the heavier … Continue reading "Disney Pic of the Week – Flags and Banners"
