Halloween at Disneyland

Fall is my favorite time of year. Our kids are back in school and the holidays are just around the corner. We’ve been going to Disneyland around Halloween each year for the last several years. This will be our third year attending Mickey’s Halloween party. For us, this is a great way to start the fall festivities.

HALLOWEEN TIME AT THE DISNEYLAND RESORT (ANAHEIM, Calif.) - The Diamond Celebration continues as guests celebrate Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort from Sept. 11 through Nov. 1, 2015 with dazzling entertainment and decor, in addition to the return of Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy. This year, the family-friendly Mickey’s Halloween Party expands to 17 nights throughout the season at Disneyland park, where guests are invited to trick-or-treat in costume, celebrate with favorite Disney Characters and enjoy special presentations of the “Halloween Screams” fireworks spectacular and the all-new “Paint the Night” parade.

Mickey’s Halloween Party is Disneyland’s annual Halloween event. This year, there are 17 dates available from September 11–November 1. Tickets for the event are on sale now. If you’ve been thinking about going, make sure you get your ticket sooner than later. They sell out fast. continued

Tracking PixelDisneyOnIce

Disney On Ice is coming back to the Bay Area with a new holiday show, Let’s Celebrate. I was thrilled when we were offered tickets to take the girls to see it. This new show, Disney On Ice, Let’s Celebrate is a great way to see all your Disney favorites in one place. If you haven’t been to a Disney On Ice show, this show could make you take the leap. Or if you’re a fan already, you’ll really like how much they’re changing things up. continued

DIY Planes Gift Wrap and Travel Bags

I might have been the last one to see Planes, Fire and Rescue. My husband took our oldest daughter to see it in the theater when the movie first came out. I’ve been waiting not so patiently for it to get released in the iTunes Store. Recently we all piled onto the couch and watched it together as a family, and loved it. 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

Dining must: Smoked turkey leg

The Turkey Leg at Disneyland

For meat-loving Disney guests, the smoked turkey leg is a must-try, at least once. Disney sells over 1.5 million turkey legs each year. You’ll inevitably see guests walking around enjoying these moist, savory treats that taste like a cross between bacon and smoked ham. Turkey legs are huge, and I’m sure people question whether they’re really turkey. I’ve been assured that they are 100% turkey. I just don’t often think about turkey legs being this large. continued

Cozy Cone Hotel: Enjoy the cuisine

Cars Land, Cozy ConeCars Land is is the newest and most loved areas of DCA. And for good reason. Each time you walk into Cars Land, it feels like you just stepped onto the set of Cars, the movie. An animated movie no less. The reproduction of Flo’s V8 Cafe and Luigi’s Tires looks just like you remember it from the movie. continued

Cupcake decorating with Sofia the First! #DisneyKids

This weekend we had a fun playdate with a few friends. We had several neighborhood princesses over for a cupcake decorating party. Although Sofia the First was our main theme, we were able to incorporate several other princesses as well. The girls dressed up, played games, decorated cupcakes, but best of all, they had a great time using their imaginations. continued

Big Hero 6 Coloring and activity sheets

We loved the Disney movie, Big Hero 6. Who knew we’d fall in love with a big robot “marshmallow” for lack of better terms. Being a San Francisco resident, I wasn’t so sure about the name of the city, but I was sold on that too. The movie is phenomenal.

Since it was just released, I don’t want to give too much away.

If you haven’t seen the movie yet, go! My daughter is six. She had some hard questions in the middle of the movie, but other than that, she loved it too. continued
