Disneyland – Day 3!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!! This was our last day at Disneyland 🙁  For resort guests, it was Extra Magic Hour morning at Disneyland. The park opened at 7 a.m. So, we got up and made our way to the entrance of the park a little after 6 a.m.  It really didn’t seem that early to us.  The whole time we were in California, we could not get our bodies to adjust to the 2-hour time difference.  So, […]

Disneyland – Day 2!!

Our second day at Disneyland, we got up early and went to Disneyland Park!! Main Street looked very pretty with all the Christmas decorations. Sleeping Beauty’s castle was covered in snow.  It is much smaller than Cinderella’s castle at the Magic Kingdom. So, I have always wanted to ride The Matterhorn.  We convinced Taylor to ride it so that we could all ride it together.  It didn’t take very long until we were in our […]

Disneyland and California!!!! Day 1

This year for Thanksgiving, we decided to take a trip and get away.  Surprise!! We switched it up a bit and instead of going to Disney World, we decided to check out the original Disney park and went to Disneyland!!!  We had such a good time.  I definitely have my favorites about both Disney World and Disneyland.  Disney World still has a very special place in my heart and I love going there, but Disneyland […]

Before we had left for the trip, we had told the kids that they could enroll in the Secret Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom and see what that was all about […]

Disney World 2012 – Day 7 – Magic Kingdom and Epcot!

WDW 2012 – Day 7 – Magic Kingdom and Epcot! This was our last full day at Disney World. That morning, after getting up and going to the Contempo Cafe for breakfast… Who can resist a Mickey waffle?! After breakfast, we headed over to the Magic Kingdom.  It was a Monday, so I knew it would be crowded.  I had been told years ago by a cast member that the Magic Kingdom is always very […]

Disney World 2012 – Day 6 – Hollywood, Epcot and a storm!

WDW 2012 – Day 6 – Hollywood, Epcot and a storm! This day was a really exciting day for us!  We got up and headed for Hollywood Studios.  It was the last day of Star Wars Weekends…and that was something we had never been to.  Of course, it did make the park a little more crowded and we didn’t hang out there very long, but it was fun and what made it exciting was we […]

Disney World – Day 5 – Epcot and Mickey’s BBQ!

WDW 2012 – Day 5 – Epcot and Mickey’s BBQ! Our 5th day at Disney World was a busy day!  We had lunch reservations at Le Cellier Steakhouse at Epcot.  This is one of our favorite non-character meals! We hopped on the Monorail and made our way to Epcot!  We had a few hours before our yummy lunch.  Epcot typically opens at 9 a.m., but the World Showcase area doesn’t open until 11 a.m. After […]

Disney World – Day 4 – Animal Kingdom

WDW – Day 4 – Animal Kingdom/Epcot! So we started our 4th day at Disney World by getting up and making it to the Animal Kingdom for breakfast at Donald’s Safari Breakfast at Tusker House!  This is one of our favorite breakfasts at Disney World.  I love getting reservations for it before the park opens so we can get family photos in front of the Tree of Life! Breakfast at Tusker House is served as […]

Disney World 2012 – Day 3 – Hollywood Studios

WDW 2012 – Day 3 – Hollywood Studios! On our third day, we made our way to Hollywood Studios.  The morning started off really nice.   We immediately headed towards our favorite ride…Toy Story Mania!  It is so fun…if you have never been on it before, it is a 3D ride that takes you through an arcade/carnival type atmosphere.  With the help of the Toy Story gang and the gun attached to the cars you ride […]

Disney World 2012 – Day 2 – Magic Kingdom!

WDW 2012 – Day 2 – Magic Kingdom!  Our first full day was a busy one!  We woke up early for breakfast reservations at Cinderella’s Royal Table!  The one thing that I really enjoy about early breakfast reservations is that they allow you to go into the parks before they open and you can take photos without tons of other strangers in your pictures!! We started out taking a few photos outside in front of […]
