Disney’s Happiest Haunts Tour

Posted on
Lee and I took the new Disney’s Happiest Haunts tour at Disneyland/DCA last Friday. There hasn’t been much information on this tour so we weren’t sure exactly what to expect. We met our group (there were 13 of us!) at 6:00 p.m. in front of the Tower of Terror, where a representative from Guest Relations … Continue reading "Disney’s Happiest Haunts Tour"

Sweet Halloween Treats

Posted on
When I was at the Disneyland Resort last weekend, I noticed that a number of shops and restaurants are featuring special treats for the fall season. Some of them are rather cute and clever, so I thought I’d share. The Blue Ribbon Bakery at Disneyland and Baker’s Field Bakery at California Adventure are both featuring … Continue reading "Sweet Halloween Treats"

Disney’s HalloweenTime returns to the Disneyland Resort for its second Halloween season – it officially started on Friday, September 21, though the decorations have been going up over the last several weeks.

Staying off-site – the Best Western Park Place Inn & Suites

Posted on
Earlier this summer I wrote a blog entry about staying on-site vs. off-site at Disneyland, and how there were certain advantages in proximity to staying off-site. I had the chance to experience this for myself on a recent overnight trip when I stayed at the Best Western Park Place Inn & Suites, which is as … Continue reading "Staying off-site – the Best Western Park Place Inn & Suites"

Quick weekend trip to Disneyland

Posted on
I made a quick weekend trip to Disneyland and actually spent the night up there for a change – mainly because I was doing the Segway tour which started at 7:15 a.m., and would have meant getting up *really* early if I left from San Diego! I met my friend Patty at my hotel on … Continue reading "Quick weekend trip to Disneyland"

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

Posted on
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"

Dinner at the Vineyard Room

Posted on
The Vineyard Room is the “fine dining” table service restaurant at Disney’s California Adventure. It’s located on the second floor of the Golden Vine Winery and is an open-air/patio restaurant – most of the tables are under a roofed area, but there are no walls. (There’s also an uncovered patio area.) There are views of … Continue reading "Dinner at the Vineyard Room"

A Summer Night at Disneyland

Posted on
Last Friday Lee and I drove to Disneyland in the afternoon (took us about two hours from San Diego, which wasn’t nearly as horrible as it can be at that time of day) and spent the evening at DCA and Disneyland. I was pleasantly surprised at how *un*crowded it was – on a Friday night … Continue reading "A Summer Night at Disneyland"
