A long time ago in the Star Wars Launch Bay….

A family favorite is Star Wars all around. So, we are a pro Star Wars land family! Until then there is lots to see and meet in the Star Wars Launch Bay in the former Innovations area. I think it works to my advantage to know that I have no memories of Innovations so I…

A Girl Scout in Disneyland… dreams do come true!

This year my little monkey earned her trip to Disneyland through the Girl Scout Cookie Program. She sold enough boxes for her to qualify for the Disneyland Turnaround trip in June. We made a chart for her see how much she sold and how close or far she was from that goal. When she first…

The Stroller Game and how to win

Every year, I wake up in time to see the sun rise over the parks. I love waking up early in the morning and getting inside for a Magic Morning (1 hour earlier than other ticket holders). You hit the pavement in from Downtown Disney and I always curse when I remember that we have…

Grand Californian runs about $240 more per night This made me wonder what the difference in the club levels were. I guess…

Kylo Ren scarier in person

I don’t know if you ever sat down in Star Wars and thought, Kylo Ren is not scary at all. He seems like he would be an okay guy to meet one day. WRONG. His vocalizer is so creepy in person. I was waiting to be death gripped by the force at any moment. The…

A non-Disneyland ending is actually OK!

This time for our 5th vacation, we didn’t get to end in Disneyland due to Magic Mornings being at different times then we are used to. We arrived on Wednesday night, late.
