Spontaneous To…

So…I woke up this morning not feeling work today so I decided to call out sick and take a spontaneous drive to the happiest place on earth. No hotel and picked up the rent a car early this morning.

I have not taken one of these trips to Disneyland in a very long time, my mom used to pull me out of school on Fridays and say were going to Disneyland you only have 10 minutes to pack and we would be on the road. So in honor of my mom being the most magical and coolest person EVER I decided to call her out sick as well pick her up and make the drive together.

 

This is what makes Disney so special to us is all the memories that we have and all the crazy times we share as a family. I am truly blessed to be able to have these opportunities with my mom and somewhat afford the life I have. I work my butt off in school and with a full time job to enjoy these adventures with my mom because she gave up a lot and had to go through so much its the least I can do for her. If you want more pictures of the trip follow me on Instagram @dezithinks.

Dia de los Muertos and Coco Celebration!

Starting September 7 – November 2, 2018 Dia de los Muertos will begin at Disneyland and DCA along with the celebration of Coco at Plaza de Familia which will be taking over Paradise Garden’s and have lots of fun activities. There will be a memory wall where you can get amazing pictures at arbol de la vida (tree of life), or even make a mask creating your very own alejibre. There is also a new show that will be playing several times a day telling the story of Miguel’s journey. Yes, Miguel will be making his debut in the parks this year so what better way to make his debut then giving him a show all about him!

Over at Frontierland (Disneyland) you can that it will be transformed with the Zocalo Parks featuring marigolds and papel picado throughout. Guests can also find traditional ofrendas, calaveras (sugar skulls) and an iconic figure of La Catrina to make the area a bit more magical.

Rancho del Zocalo will be serving some traditional Mexican foods and I’m really hoping they will bring back the coco mug for the season. What are you most looking forward too?

Halloween In The Parks!

It’s beginning to look a lot like Halloween in the parks! My all time favorite season in the parks, so if you are a fan of Halloween here is what you can look forward to in Disneyland/DCA, WDW, Hong Kong, and Paris!

Disneyland/DCA:

Halloween-Time_Novelty_Oogie-Boogie-Popcorn-Bucket_080718_04016DN-3_Cropped.jpg

Both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure will be decked out for Halloween. The Oogie Boogie popcorn bucket will make its return with a bit of an updated look. I was lucky enough to get the bucket last year so I don’t think I will be getting one this year UNLESS my BC wants one then I will of course try and get her one.

Disneyland/WDW:

sns-dailymeal-1925288-holidays-disneyland-halloween-popcorn-bucket-2018-photos-20180814.png

The poison apple stein will also make its return to the park, but with an update as well instead of it being red its going to be green. I unfortunately have been trying to get the original poison apple stein for years now and have not succeed so I will attempt to get the green one hopefully I have better luck with this one.

Another thing coming to the parks is the brand new  premium popcorn bucket. So get ready to brew some potions because this cauldron premium popcorn bucket is not only the cutest BUT it lights up! This one I have to have, this is LIFE for me. So wish me luck!

Hong Kong Disneyland:

Now if you are planning on visiting Hong Kong Disneyland from September 13th to October 31st, 2018 you are in for a spooktacular treat. Jack Skelington and his friends will be turning the park upside down allowing guests to visit their hometown of Halloween Town where you can also visit Dr. Finklestein’s lab where he kept Sally captive. Make sure to keep an eye open for Oogie Boogie, because he might just sneak up behind you!

Disneyland Paris:

Starting October 1st, 2018 guests visiting Disneyland Paris can enjoy not only halloween BUT help Mickey celebrate his 90th birthday. October 1- November 4, 2018 you can celebrate the Halloween season with it’s brand new parade float featuring Mickey who will disappear and re-appear wearing three different costumes. For Mickey’s 90th birthday you can catch the celebration from October 1 all the way through the Christmas season.

There are so many things I want to see especially at Disneyland Paris and Hong Kong Disneyland but this year I will only be attending the OG Disneyland which I am thankful for. What park would you like to visit during the Halloween season?

DCOM Freaky Friday Review!

Tonight was the premier of the newest Disney Channel Original Movie Freaky Friday. I thought it was going to just be a remake of the 2003 Freaky Friday starring Lindsey Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis, but to my surprise it wasn’t. The only thing that was similar was the storyline, mother and daughter don’t see eye to eye and they change bodies and have to figure out how to get back to their own body.

PCTV-1660010307-hcdl.jpg

The one with Lindsey Lohan, Anna (Lindsey’s character) wants to perform with her band even though her mom is getting married. In the new one the daughter Ellie wants to go to The Hunt with her friends and her mom is under stress from planning and catering her own wedding so she can get on the cover of a magazine to promote her business.

Freaky-Friday-Music-from-the-Disney-Channel-Original-Movie-400x400.jpg

Now the 2003 version wasn’t a musical (incase you haven’t seen it), but the 2018 DCOM version was a full on musical and I don’t know how I feel about it. It was cute, but I don’t think I want to watch it again. I did however buy it on iTunes because I want to grow my DCOM collection. Maybe I’m just judging it way to hard because I prefer the 2003 version, I don’t know but I am going to try and watch it again and really keep an open mind about it. What are your thoughts if you watched it?

Haunted Mansions 49th Anniversary!!

On this day August 9th, 1969 The Haunted Mansion first debut at the Disneyland Resort. The outside of the attraction was completed six years before it opened. The Organ that you see in the ballroom is from the 1954 live-action film 20,000 leagues under the sea. The voice of Madame Leota was performed by Eleanor Audley who also voiced Maleficent and Lady Tremaine.

The Hatbox Ghost originally appeared when the Mansion first opened but was taken out due to the fact that sometimes had two heads, and not upholding . the Disney magic. Hatty made is comeback debut back into the attraction for Disneyland Resorts 60th anniversary in 2015.

Since 2001 Jack Skellington has taken over the attraction every Christmas as part of Haunted Mansion Holiday. Someone purchased a personalized tombstone inside the Mansion in 2004 spending $37,400. Happy Birthday Haunted Mansion and of course all 999 ghosts that live there!

Splash Mountain Funko Figures!

Splash Mountain is one of my favorite Disney rides and I really love collecting Funko figures so when I heard that Disney was coming out with Splash Mountain Funko Figure which will be available in the parks August 26, 2018.

SplashMountainPOP.png

The 1946 Disney film Song of the South which was inspiration for Splash Mountain which opened at the Disneyland Resort July 17, 1989. The figure will include Br’er Rabbit and Br’er Bear in the attractions log. I know I have to make sure to pick up two one for me and one for my BC because she will soon be conquering Splash Mountain as her first big ride!

Will you be going to the park to pick up one these Funko Figures?

World Dog Surfing Championship review!

This was an AMAZING event! There were so many little puppy’s running around everywhere, so many booths handing out toys, bandanas, and treats! There was a booths where you spin to win, some gave out chapstick, and there was an agility booth!

There was also a ton of fun photo ops for those fury friends, you can put them on a surfboard or take a picture with the amazingly awesome surfer pups! It was a bit crowded and I am really glad my mom was able to go with me to help me with my littles. Tarzan, was very interested in the water and the pups playing in so we watched in the water while Belle hung back with my mom away from the water.

I definitely can not wait until next year to go back!
