Springtime at Disneyland

Springtime at Disneyland is something very special. You can’t help but stop and enjoy all of the flowers and greenery around every corner. On our recent trip I couldn’t resist snapping pics of the touches of Spring throughout the park, as well as Disney California Adventure.

I’m still mourning the loss of the Peanut Butter sandwich from Pooh Corner, but one new thing I am enjoying in its place is each month Candy PalacePooh Corner, and Trolley Treats have a special marshmallow wand. In March the marshmallow wand was Triple Chocolate, it was dipped in caramel, chocolate, covered in mini chocolate chips then drizzled with milk, dark and white chocolate. I could barely sneak more then a couple bites from my teenager, so needless to say, we loved it! Continue reading

Birthday Celebration at Disneyland

Every year we designate a December and January visit to Disneyland for both of our boys’ birthdays. On these particular visits, they get to pick out what rides we hit and get any treats they want…wait, they do that every visit?! HA! My youngest turned 7 this year so we visited the park in late January to celebrate his day. On our way to the park, I like to tweet @disneylandtoday for a fun little birthday shout out that makes my kids’ day.

Hayden is one of the pickiest kids you may ever meet. The only treats he wants from Disneyland are Mickey shaped soft pretzels, Mickey cake pops, hot dogs and macaroni & cheese, all depending on his mood. This particular visit he wanted a Mickey pretzel as soon as we got to the park. Mickey pretzels can be found at Pretzel Carts located all throughout the park. They also sell a side of nacho cheese at an additional cost or cream-cheese filled pretzels. Continue reading

Christmas Time at Disneyland – Pooh Corner

Christmas time at Disneyland is so magical and something we all deserve to experience.  Being annual pass holders, we are fortunate enough to get to experience all of the different seasons at the park.  Each October I always announce how much I love Halloween time at the park, but once we move on to Christmas, I suddenly cannot pick a favorite.

We were there right after Halloween and when I left the parks I was ready to decorate my house for Christmas.  Between the decor, music and snow at night you can’t help but feel like Christmas is right around the corner, Thanksgiving what?!

Once we step off of the Winnie the Pooh ride in Critter Country, my kids run straight into Pooh Corner for a treat.  I never seem to mind, since it is my favorite candy shop between both parks.  During their Christmas season,  they have so many adorable Holiday treats that it is hard to decide, so I end up grabbing a few.

Halloween Mickey Balloons on Main Street, U.S.A. at Disneyland

I have two favorite times of the year to be at Disneyland, Halloween and Christmas.  The park is so magical during both Holiday seasons!  My family and I have been going to Mickey’s Halloween Party annually for the past couple of years.  We always come home with pounds and pounds of candy from trick-or-treating around the park.  The kids love to wear their costumes and see so many creative costumes, including the characters all decked out for Halloween.

Happy 60th Birthday, Disneyland!

IMG_9234

I had the pleasure of spending the day at Disneyland on the actual 60th birthday of the Disney Park along with Jenny of Picky Palate. If you don’t know, Jenny has a feature on her blog about Disney Dining and a Instagram account called @disneyhungry, which are all about the fabulous eats and treats Disney has to offer. So last week when she reached out to me and asked if I wanted to meet her in Disneyland for a day of eating, shopping and going on rides I could not say no.

Typically when we go to Disneyland, I have my whole family with me, which I love (in case they are reading this), but it was neat to have a girls trip with just Jenny and myself. Since I often go with my husband and boys, you can imagine a day of mainly exploring food over rides at the park would not have been their ideal Disney experience, but I sure loved it!
