It’s a Merry World After All!

One of my mom’s must-ride rides was ‘It’s a Small World’. She vividly remembers the song and the figurines dancing. It is also a family favorite because it’s a sit down ride and the song stays with you the entire time. I will be humming it even months later. I’m not quite sure what it…

Ride the Purple one… It’s the fastest!

It’s a classic and there are stories that the lavender one is the fastest. Do I believe it? Not sure but either way, I’ll usually only be able to ride this ride once. Every time, I ask my Pop-Pop which was the scariest ride, he says, “The Teacups! No seat belts! I like this ride…

Frozen Fastpasses? Get them fast before they melt!

Frozen is a staple in the Begay household. I have 2 daughters who love the movie and we even took it to another level by dressing up at the characters for Halloween. So meeting Anna and Elsa was high on the Disneyland To-Do list. This was a magic morning for us so we we ran…

Dance with the one that brought you

I am a firm believer in being a team in Disneyland. It’s the only way to survive as a family. If you don’t spend time planning with the other head of household, they won’t be happy and the whole family suffers. First order of business, do they even like Disney? Star Wars? The cartoons? Which…

Minnie and Many Friends

I love Minnie and Friends for so many reasons. 1- You get to meet characters in the park while other people who are walking up want to meet the characters that you are eating with, they can’t. They are all your’s. 2- You get to meet some fun characters. 3- The food is so yummy….

Early Bird never waits

 I am an early riser. My normal weekend routine starts around 4am. I’ve always been an early bird. I married a non-early bird. He prefers to sleep in and snooze until about noon. This being said, he always wakes up early with me on Disneyland days. We try to maximize our time in the parks…

California adventures at night are Cozy

One of my all time favorite places to be when it’s dark is on Route 66. The backdrop colors everything a warm reddish color. The Cozy Cones light up to warm orange. There are fluorescent hints comes from Flo’s diner. You will be guaranteed to see Mater here, talking to all the families. It’s the…

Tower of Terror… a New favorite

There are always moments when I’m in Disneyland or California Adventure that make me say, “Where have you been all my life?” Splash Mountain and Tower of Terror are two of the most notable! During Tinksgiving, I got a chance to go but other members of my family chickened out on me. My hubby hates…

PLAY parade and how to get a 1-1

  I pride myself on making Disney Magic a priority for my family. I go out of my way to make sure every moment is amazing. I research and research and research. Early morning Saturdays and late nights, just watching blogs and figuring out the intricacies of each attraction. Many times, I get the “Don’t…
