Meet the little voices inside your head. #InsideOut

InsideOut

When we went to D23 in 2013, one of the highlights for us was a sneak peak of the new Disney-Pixar animation, Inside Out. We’ve been on the edge of our seats waiting for it to be released. Well, the wait will soon be over! Inside Out will be theaters June 19, 2015.

Inside Out Family

Now we get to meet the characters who are voices inside Riley’s head. Disney-Pixar just released the trailer, and I can’t wait to meet this family next door!

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Quick and easy butter cookies

Butter Cookies

Over the weekend, I was feeling under the weather. In fact, I’m still not 100%, but I knew I had an event coming up that I had to bring a holiday cookie. Normally, I wouldn’t care too much and bring a pre-made something. However, this was Girl Scout leader meeting, so I might have felt a little bit of pressure to bring something homemade. continued

101 Disneyland Tips turns ONE, let’s celebrate

101 Disneyland Tips

I never believe how fast time flies. It’s hard to believe we just hit the ONE year anniversary of my book, 101 Disneyland Tips. It’s been such a great year and I look forward to sharing a new, revised edition with you early next year.

My book has done really well, and I’m proud of the reviews it has received so far. If you haven’t read it yet, you’re in for a treat. Dawn Cullo, the ultimate Disney fan, wrote the foreword of the book, giving us an abbreviated history of Disneyland. This book is filled with helpful tips for ally parents, any first-time visitor, and even those of you who think you’ve experienced it all. Thank you to all of you who have purchased, read, and shared the book. Without you, it wouldn’t be as successful, I’m sure of it. continued

Disney dining, is it right for you?

Is Disney dining right for you?

For those of you who purchase packages through Disney or other travel planning services, you may be able to purchase a Disney Dining Plan. These plans don’t offer a discount, but are intended to help budget in your meals. These plans are purchased along with your package, and vouchers can be used inside the park and at Disney hotels. You’ll be able to select your dining plan, but most offer enough for three meals a day, plus a snack. continued

Mickey’s Toontown

Mickey's Toontown

Toontown is a phenomenal little area of the park. It was designed as a three-dimensional city for our favorite animated characters. This interactive area is perfect for little explorers, as Toontown was made for little hands to touch everything. Since Toontown was made with younger children in mind, make sure you open, close, pull, push, look, and listen to everything around you. You never know what might be behind the next door you open. continued

Best cup of coffee at Disneyland

Best coffee at Disneyland

Anyone who has visited Disneyland in recent years knows that Disney hasn’t (historically) done coffee very well.  In past years, I can’t count the number of times that I’ve had a mediocre to undrinkable cup of coffee at Disneyland. However, I’m happy to report, with the newly renovated Carnation Cafe and Holly Jolly Bakery, things have improved dramatically. I can now enjoy a nice cup of coffee with a fresh pastry, or perhaps some Mickey Mouse waffles. continued

Mickey shaped beignets

Mickey beignets

A trip through New Orleans Square wouldn’t be complete without a stop at the small Mint Julep Bar, just behind the French Market Restaurant, to enjoy a few Mickey-shaped beignets. These fried, puffy, Mickey-shaped, donut-like treats are dusted in powdered sugar, were brought to Disneyland from New Orleans. The powdered sugar does a great job covering each beignet with sugary goodness. continued

Peter Pan’s Flight

Peter Pan's Flight

One of the busiest and most-loved rides at Disneyland is Peter Pan’s Flight. This is one of the first rides you’ll see after walking through the middle of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle into Fantasyland. This ride is popular with everyone; it’s one of our favorite rides. Due to the location and popularity of this attraction, the line gets long quickly. continued
