Hello Friends! Hope you all are well! So I’m going to keep this short with a few tips. As you all know Places are starting to open up now. Things are slowly getting back to business! The downfall places are opening up a lot different then we know. We got to attend Disneyland California adventure on Sunday for an event , Touch of Disney. It was so nice to be back on Disney grounds. The event was nice, but certain things I noted to help some of you that will be going once opened.
The obvious mask wearing. You all know public places require mask wearing. I’d say if you have a mask that you feel is the most comfortable wear that one. I also packed a second one for all of us. Just in case one gets dirty or hey with kids they might drop them. So definitely carry a spare mask. Hand wipes, tissue and sanitizer is a must, but I’m sure you all carry that already.
Ok so for the things I wish I knew before. I’m not sure if Disney reopening will be similar to the event we attended. But if it is these are the things I wish I knew. First and foremost take a portable charger!!! You use the Disney App so much for mobile ordering now!! My phone died before we even left. And certain food places will not take your food order unless it’s mobile order. So you will need a full charged phone and portable charger. Also make sure more than one person in your party has the App. Just in case your phone is slow. Now this , I’m not sure but if you can bring your own water bottles or the ones you fill up at the water stations do so. The waters are so expensive and with the mask wearing you get way more dehydrated. Also with social distancing finding places to sit may be harder. So if you have a few people with you, have one save a table before you get your food. As for lockers not sure if they will have those available but I would plan accordingly. So find out before going so you don’t carry so much with you. The tram from parking lot, not sure how that will be once it opens , but for the event it wasn’t available, so be prepared to walk about a mile from the lot to the entrance. And to be honest expect big changes and go with an open mind and patience. It’s not going to be the way you remember, but it’s a good feeling to be back and visit Disneyland seriously just enjoy!
Hello friends!! This is the last post for the month of love! And I thought how fun to do what I love about Disneyland! First of all it’s already almost March like, wth! Spring is coming in strong and I’m excited for some spring fashion! I’ll be doing a spring post next week! Some fashion must! Fall and spring have always been my favorite! So I’m super pumped!
So let’s get started with my Disney love! First I want to talk about annual passes. We were pass holders before, when breaker was 2, but we hardly went. So we had taken some time away. We decided to get them again when Breaker turned 6, he’s so into Disney. So far we have loved having our passes. They are pricy, but if you plan to visit enough in a year they are so worth it! I recommend the deluxe passes. They are not as pricy as the others and they have good days to go. Not so many block out dates. The only thing is if you like summer days don’t get this one they are blocked almost all summer. Go with what I have the signature. The reason I have signature and not deluxe like my hubby and breaker is for the parking. Signature includes parking. We go 2-3 times a month and at $25 a day parking it made more sense. I’m also not blocked a lot. So if you don’t mind paying more go with that one. Totally worth it if you plan to go a lot.
Food ok, we are still exploring food! But some of my must haves are the clam chowder in bread bowl. They have this in New Orleans square and the pier at DCA. It’s a fav! I love the red cart in Main Street for a good old corn dog, so yummy! Jolly holiday has the best treats if you have a sweet tooth. And let’s not forget about the churros. You can’t go wrong. And by far my favorite treat is the beignets in New Orleans square too! If you need a drink head over to DCA for a yummy drink at lamplight lounge. We love following magic journeys on YouTube and Instagram for all the latest yummy foods at Disneyland!
Fashion you all know I love some cute clothes! And we all know most love the great photo opportunities at Disneyland! So we all need to look cute, but I mean comfort is key! I usually go with my most comfy jeans especially when I know I want photos. If it’s a lazy day going I opt for sweats or leggings. Hot days I go with my comfy jean shorts. I love to go on theme. Who doesn’t love to wear a Disney shirt to go along with the cute ears! My go to places are H&M and zara for my Disney needs! They always have the cutest tees and you can’t go wrong with some jeans and tee! For Breaker I usually get his shirts from H&M or kids gap. I always wear converse or my comfy adidas. So try to stick to a shoe you know is great for walking. Good thing sneakers are so on trend!
So much more but I’ll do a more foodie one soon with pictures! Because low key we go to eat!
till next post!
Hello Friends! Hope you all are doing great! I’m over here running around like a crazy mom! Breaker turns 5 in less than 2 weeks so I’m busy getting ready for his celebration. Even keeping it semi-small ,It’s still a lot of work. I love to do a lot of my own party supplies. So I make a lot of stuff that goes into my parties. I enjoy it so much. Now if only I can get someone to clean my house for the party, LOL! That’s my least favorite. I’ll be posting his party in a few weeks! So stay tuned!
Today I wanted to talk about our staycation at the Disneyland Hotel. We went this past weekend, It was my first time. We didn’t go to Disneyland because we are saving it for the holiday decor. And I wanted to enjoy the Hotel fully.
So my first impression when I walked in was very cool! The minute we walked in I’d say about 4 characters were walking around the lobby taking pictures. Breaker was scared of them but I managed to get a quick photo of Pluto. The hubby was just saying he never sees Pluto at Disneyland so I took a photo for proof that he does exist, LOL!
After checking in we walked around the grounds until are room was ready, It’s so clean and we did see Minnie mouse outside of Goofy’s kitchen. Again Breaker was scared. But I love that the characters are around for easy photo opportunities. Totally worth it. No lines to take photos.
Once our room was ready we headed over to the room to change and enjoy the pool. One of the Cool things in the room is the complimentary toiletries, They have H2O products! So totally cool. The pool area is very nice. They have a great set up for families, couples and kids. A little bit of everything for everyone. We enjoyed the kids area with the slides so much. Breaker was scared to do the bigger slides so we kept to the mini one. They also have complimentary vest for kids safety. I really loved that. Complimentary towels and waiters walking around taking order for food and drinks. Both great!
After enough time at the pool we headed back to the room and changed up to grab a drink from the tiki bar, That is super cute and entertaining. A must if you have someone to watch the kids! The cool thing is you can head over to Downtown Disney to walk around get some yummy food and my favorite Beignets!
Is it worth the price? I’d say yes If you have the opportunity, Go stay and have a great time! We will be back! Hope this was helpful, Till next post!
Hello Ladies!! I swear these weeks go so fast. So as promised I’m going to share our family day to Disneyland. We are big Disneyland people. I mean, we love it! We did have season passes last year but didn’t renew since I don’t like going during the really hot months. So it had been almost a year since our last visit. I was pretty excited since every year for Breaker, it’s a different experience. That’s what I enjoy the most , my boy’s excitement.
This was our first time attending Mickey’s Halloween party. For those of you that don’t know, this is an evening event during Halloween time. This is not included if you buy a day pass and not included if you have an annual pass. It’s a complete other ticket. I know this event sells out fast. Season pass holders do get first priority on buying these tickets. Another thing before I get into my personal experience, these tickets are not as much as a regular admission and the cool thing is the event starts at 6pm. You can actually go in 3 hours before event. So you get those extra 3 hours to park hop! And the park closes early to regular admission ticket holders so the park is not that crowded.
First the park is totally decorated for Halloween! It’s so cute and festive. It’s a Halloween party so you can dress up, of course Disney has rules on the website. But that was probably my favorite is just looking at everyone’s costumes and seeing how cute the families get into the spirit of it all. The crowd is a mixture. You see a lot of teenagers and young adults but you have your families with little ones as well. The cute thing is you see a lot of the characters around – more than a normal day at Disneyland. They have lines where you can take a picture with the Villains of Disneyland. I mean how cute is that! Some of the rides are Halloween themed. One of our favorites is the Haunted mansion. They turn that into ‘The nightmare before Christmas’ theme and it’s so cute! That one lasts through Christmas time at Disneyland so if you don’t get out there for Halloween you still have a chance to see it for Christmas. They have a few more that they change-up for halloween. But that one is my favorite. Another fun perk, is the Trick or Treating spots. They have them through out the park. They give you a map on where to find them. That was really cool. Breaker loved that! We literally just did 3 of the spots and we had 2 bags filled of good candy. Oh they do hand out mini bags when you enter the park! One of the best perks of this event was the short ride lines. It was amazing! We got to get on Peter pan in like 2 minutes, LOL! If you’re a regular at Disneyland you know what I’m talking about. That line is always so long! The parade is a Halloween theme with a spectacular fire work show at the end. Besides feeling like a went to a club all night the next day it was such a fun night for my family, LOL! No but seriously, if you haven’t experienced it, I really recommend you do one year to come. It’s very cute and the kids loved it! So did us big kids! I’m going to share a few personal photos below. Breaker wanted to be a donut Chef, his choice. So I made us a little something to go with his costume. Breaker’s donuts on his costume, my ears and daddy’s pin was all made by yours truly. Big brother was supposed to be bashful from snow-white. I even made a hat for him but he changed his mind, TEENAGERS! Hope you ladies liked this post, I hope it helps if you’re heading out to Disneyland for Halloween.
