Breakfast at Flo’s V8 Café | Disneyland Resort

July 22, 2016

Flo's V8 Café
Happy Friday (raise your hand if you’re excited that it’s finally the weekend!). Today, I’m back with another Disney Restaurant Review (I have so much fun with these posts)! Although I’m heading to Disney World for TWO WEEKS in August and then again in September (for the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival), I won’t be visiting Disneyland again until October (for Halloween). It’s been so long since I’ve visited Disneyland (okay, it’s only been five months and I realize that isn’t that long but for someone like me, who visits the Disney Parks basically every month, it seems like a lifetime) and I miss it so much! So, to get over the Disneyland blues I’ve been experiencing lately, today’s post is all about breakfast at Flo’s V8 Café (because breakfast is the most important meal of the day, am I right?)! Carsland is definitely one of my favorite aspects of California Adventure and no trip to Carsland is complete without a visit to Flo’s V8 Café (and a ride on Radiator Springs Racers of course!).

Cafe Orleans Review | Disneyland Resort

March 2, 2016

Cafe Orleans Review
Happy Wednesday! Today, I’m back with another Disney Restaurant Review and boy, is it a good one! That’s right, today’s Disney Restaurant Review is dedicated to the one and only Cafe Orleans (located in New Orleans Square at Disneyland). I’ve talked about this (very) briefly on the blog before but I am OBSESSED with all things New Orleans (in fact, visiting New Orleans is on my 25 before 25 bucket list!). I’m in love with all the food, beauty and culture New Orleans has to offer. I think one of the main reasons I’ve always liked New Orleans (even though I’ve never visited) is because of the similarities it has to my hometown Chicago in respect to jazz music. Needless to say, I just love all things New Orleans. Luckily for me, Disneyland’s New Orleans Square has the perfect amount of “all things New Orleans” to satisfy my NOLA craving (and it also happens to be home to two of my FAVORITE Disney rides: Pirates of the Caribbean and The Haunted Mansion!). Since I frequent the Disney Parks so often, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to dine at practically every Disney restaurant and if you’re looking for good food, good prices and a charming atmosphere, then look no further than Cafe Orleans!

Mickey and the Magical Map Review | Disneyland

February 24, 2016

Mickey and the Magical Map
I had such a blast writing my Yak & Yeti Review (stay tuned, because I have a TON of Disney Restaurant Reviews coming soon) earlier this month, that I’ve decided to start sharing more Disney reviews/posts here on the blog. One of my goals this year is to incorporate more Disney on the blog, so I thought there’s no better time than the present. Like I said in my Yak & Yeti Review, Disney is not your typical “theme park” (I actually don’t even consider it to be a theme park). Disney is SO much more than just rides. What makes a visit to the Disney Parks so magical is the Disney atmosphere itself and that atmosphere consists of rides, parades, shows, fireworks, shopping and of course, FOOD! Today, I’ll be talking about one of my favorite shows at Disneyland: Mickey and the Magical Map! Mickey and the Magical Map is a 22-minute live musical show that first debuted at Disneyland back in 2013. While this is NO Fantasmic and it doesn’t even come close to Disney World’s Beauty and the Beast stage show (which is located in Hollywood Studios), the singing, dancing and amazing performers definitely bring a certain charm to Mickey and the Magical Map. While the overall storyline of Mickey and the Magical map is so-so, it’s the unique song selections and homage to otherwise overlooked Disney films that makes it a must see in my opinion.

Disneyland Haul: Winter 2016

February 19, 2016

Disneyland Haul
Happy Friday! It’s a new month, which means it’s time for a new Disney Haul! Sadly, this month marks the end of my monthly Disney trips (insert crying emoj!). That’s right, March will be the first month since August 2015 that I won’t be visiting either Disneyland or Disney World. But don’t feel too bad for me because in April I’m heading to DISNEYLAND PARIS for my 24th birthday! Words can’t describe how excited am I for this trip! Visiting Disneyland Paris has been on my Disney bucket list for years and I never thought it would be happening this soon (and on my birthday nonetheless!) But enough about Paris, on to the Disneyland haul! Like I say in all my Disney Haul posts, a quick disclosure: since I am a Disney Premier Passport holder (aka someone who has an annual pass to both Disneyland AND Disney World), I get a pretty good discount on merchandise (20% off at Disneyland and 10% off at Disney World.)  Continue reading

Disneyland During the Holidays

December 22, 2015

Disneyland During Christmastime
I’m so EXCITED to be heading to Disney World TOMORROW (for Christmas and New Years) but before I leave, I wanted to share a few pictures from my trip to Disneyland last week (two Disney trips within two weeks of each other?! Crazy, I know, but Disney is my LIFE!) Although I’ve been to the Disney Parks more times than I can count on my fingers and toes (in 2015 alone I’ve visited Disney seven times, so far), this was my first time experiencing Disneyland during the holidays! I’ve got to say, it DID NOT disappoint! It was truly magical. I’ve said this before but NOTHING compares to Disney during the holidays! For this post, I’ve decided to highlight my favorite things about each of the eight lands—Main Street, U.S.A., Tomorrowland, Fantasyland, Mickey’s Toontown, Frontierland, Critter Country, New Orleans Square and Adventureland. Up First, Main Street, U.S.A.!  Continue reading
