Is it Possible to See Both the Disneyland Electrical Parade and the Remember Fireworks on the Same Night?

Posted on
That seems to be a fairly commonly asked question…and the short answer is yes, if you’re willing to accept a less-than-optimal fireworks view. For those of you who aren’t as familiar with the Disneyland parks…at Disney’s California Adventure (DCA) Disney’s Electrical Parade (DEP) begins at 8:45, and the Remember fireworks at Disneyland (DL) start at … Continue reading "Is it Possible to See Both the Disneyland Electrical Parade and the Remember Fireworks on the Same Night?"

The Main Street Electrical Parade!

Posted on
Well, ok…make that Disney’s Electrical Parade, now that it’s at Disney’s California Adventure and not Disneyland. But it’s still a “spectacular festival pageant of nighttime magic and imagination in thousands of sparkling lights and electrosynthomagnetic musical sounds!” These days it runs at DCA during peak seasons, which generally means the two weeks around Easter, mid-June … Continue reading "The Main Street Electrical Parade!"

Disneyland Bits and Bites

We made another trip to Disneyland on the afternoon/evening of Friday, August 17…thought I’d share a few observations… With the “Year of a Million Dreams” extended through 2008 (doesn’t that make it “Years of a Million Dreams?” the banners in the main entry plaza have changed…and the letters in front of DCA that spell out … Continue reading "Disneyland Bits and Bites"

Attraction Comparison: Splash Mountain

Posted on
Continuing my series of attraction comparisons…I decided to stick with the mountains, and compare the Splash Mountain attractions at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom (MK) and Disneyland (DL). Both are located in about the same area of the park – though at MK this area is in Frontierland, and at DL it’s in Critter Country. … Continue reading "Attraction Comparison: Splash Mountain"

Disney’s California Adventure Attractions

Posted on
Don’t ask me why this occurred to me in the shower the other day, but I started wondering about which Walt Disney World park Disney’s California Adventure most resembles, at least in terms of the attractions. With Animal Kingdom, it shares “It’s Tough to Be a Bug”. Walt Disney World Attraction Disney’s California Adventure Attraction … Continue reading "Disney’s California Adventure Attractions"

Disneyland: Staying On-site vs Off-site

Posted on
As many of you know, when considering a trip to Walt Disney World, the issue of whether to stay on-site or off-site can be rather hotly debated. At WDW staying on-site certainly has advantages with its access to Disney transportation, proximity to the parks, and the wide range of resorts (and room rates!) available. At … Continue reading "Disneyland: Staying On-site vs Off-site"

Happy Birthday, Disneyland!

Today is Disneyland’s 52nd birthday. I’d have to say that Walt’s Big Experiment looks pretty good 52 years later! This year we’ve already seen the the second annual Disney’s California Food and Wine Weekends, and the openings of Pirates Lair on Tom Sawyer Island and the new Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage. Coming up, Disney has … Continue reading "Happy Birthday, Disneyland!"
