CONFIRMED!

Aliens Pizza Planet- A Better Place will invade  Redd Rockets Pizza Port for Pixar Fest. They have sourced some of the finest ingredients from across the universe to bring us fresh pizza from around the world. Pepperonia a specialty from their home planet is topped off with mushrooms and green peppers. They will also cook up a cheeseburger pizza with mustard and pizza sauce on a sesame seed crust, topped with cheese, caramelized onions, diced tomatoes, slider patties, house made burger sauce and finally pickles to top it off. Im full just thinking of it.

Rumor Has It: March 2018!

There are two rumors I am pretty excited for and needed to do a post on these rumors and two upcoming events! So lets get started!

Disneyland:

Rumor has it that Disneyland a real life Pizza Planet. Aliens Pizza Planet- A Better Place will be replacing Redd Rockets Pizza Port in Tomorrowland. Disney hasn’t officially confirmed the opening or if it will be in Disneyland or WDW. So only time will tell.

Together Forever- A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular will premier April 13, 2018 in time for Pixar Fest!

Walt Disney World:

Rumor has it that WDW’s Haunted Mansion will be closing in the near future to accommodate a CoCo overlay. Again, Disney has not official mentioned anything about this CoCo overlay but I think it will be amazing and i’m sure it will only be for a month or two like Disneyland’s Nightmare Before Christmas overlay.

Incredible Summer Celebration will begin May 25 with incredible new attractions, entertainment and more!

I am very excited for both these rumors, I think Redd Rocket turning into Pizza Planet is a smart idea on Disney’s part because who doesn’t love Toy Story? I mean I have always dreamed about eating in Pizza Planet and I feel like if this rumor comes true I will live out my childhood dream. For Haunted Mansion I feel like it would be another cool idea because I love CoCo and for it to have an overlay in the Haunted Mansion I feel like the possibilities are endless and it would be mind blowing to see what Disney could do. What are your thoughts about these rumors? Are you for them or against them?

DCA’s Food and Wine Festival 2018: Sip and Savor Pass

The sip and savor pass is exclusive to annual pass holders only. It costs $45.00 and you can buy a couple of them. With these passes, you get  8 tabs which essentially you pay with and in exchange get a button at every kiosk of course while supplies last. Now, the question is, are they worth it? The answer is simple. YES! They are a 100% worth the money.

Now in order to save money, you have to make sure you purchase items that are over $5.50. For me, I saved $4. It isn’t a lot of money but I am a very picky eater so some of the items that would be more for my buck I wasn’t a fan of.

With the Sip and Savor pass, you get a menu of all the things you can purchase. There are some items that you can’t “purchase” with the pass. So, this is something I didn’t know about when I bought the pass BUT found out when I tried to use it for one of the items. Let me know if you have any questions about the Sip and Savor and I will do my best to answer!

DCA Food & Wine Festival 2018: Guy Fieri

Friday, March 9, 2018, was the BEST DAY EVER!! As you can tell by the title, this was the day that my mom and I went to go see Guy Fieri LIVE! At the Hyperion Theater. This was a ticketed event, I paid a total of $200 for my mom and me to attend.

When I read the description, I was a little unclear what I actually paid for other than seeing him LIVE on stage.The event started at 8pm, so we checked in at 7pm in the esplanade. We showed our receipt, and in exchange, we got a park ticket that said Guy Fieri LIVE at the  Hyperion Theater on the back.

Once they opened the doors my mom, and I found seats the third row back from the stage and in the middle. It was PERFECT! Then, they announced his arrival, and he was literally in front of me…I was freaking out a little because it felt so unreal. He brought out Goofy, told some jokes and of course he brought out his son Hunter to help him cook. Which their relationship was really refreshing, you can honestly see the love they have for one another on stage.

F998D248-6ED6-420C-BDF0-9EA2BDC7D25DGuy made Trash Can Nachos, a Sandwich and Apple Pie Milkshake (alcoholic). Now, my mom has been obsessed with the Trashcan Nachos since she saw them first on Diners, Drive In’s and Dives. This was the only thing she wanted to taste and all she would ever talk about. At the end of the show, Guy said: “Oh don’t worry you guys will get to try all of this stuff when you exit the theater”! The look on my mom’s face was priceless, she couldn’t believe she was actually going to try the Trashcan Nachos.

4CB53683-E478-4115-93F1-C0A0681CAE02The coolest part though was when we exited the theater they had lights up, tables set and walls up so you couldn’t see DCA. It was a “private” party, so we grabbed our food and picked a table and talked…as we were talking this person puts a hand on my mom’s shoulder and asks “so hows the food?” YES! Guy Fieri, asked my mom how she was enjoying the food and proceeded to fist pump us and made his rounds. This was the coolest because he made sure to stop and chat a little with everyone there before heading back in.

All and all I would say this was worth every penny. We had such a great time he made us laugh, he makes delicious food, and he was a really cool dude, and I would LOVE to attend another event like this! Let me know in the comments if you would like me to post a video of Guy Fieri LIVE! in the comments below!

This is the third year of the Virtual Running Shorts and y third year participating and I LOVE IT! I get my runDisney miles in, I get to run with my puppies. Another reason I love these series, is my Nana gets the opportunity to participate in a runDisney event unfortunately, her legs aren’t strong enough to ‘run’ all the way through which she would like to do in a park event but non the less she is just as addicted to the bling as I am. Will you be signing up for this Virtual Running Shorts? Let me know in the comments below!

DCA Food & Wine Festival 2018: #1

I absolutely love the Food and Wine festival because I love food. The Food and Wine Festival all about food and wine (obviously) but its six weeks of delicious food and alcoholic beverages. This year I decided to really embrace the F&W festival, instead of what I normally do and not try a lot of the food offerings and who better to go with than my Mom. I think what made this trip even more special was it was completely last minute. My boss was like “you work too hard, you should go to Disneyland this weekend” and of course she didn’t have to tell me twice, so I called my mom she booked us a car and a hotel.

Friday, one of the most exciting nights of my life. Not only were we there for the F&W but I made the executive decision to buy us tickets to go see one of our favorite Chef’s Guy Fieri LIVE! At the Hyperion Theater. Now, the total took me back BUT we do love Guy so I did it kind of going in blind and let me tell you EVERY PENNY WAS WORTH IT!

image.jpg

This year, I also decided to purchase the Sip & Savor pass. Honestly, it was a great purchase I did end up saving some money which was AMAZING! Plus, for the price you get a button at every kiosk which is now rightfully hanging up in my room next to my runDisney medals.

The merchandise was amazing, and although I wanted to buy it all I restrained myself to only buying a hoodie but I did buy a ton of Disney merchandise. I know I didn’t go into detail but that is because they deserve there own blog post so I can ramble on about the experiences that I had.

Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite

What better way to ring in May the fourth than at a Disneyland After Dark (DAD) event themed as Star Wars. This second event for DAD series and probably the most out of this galaxy one.

captain-phasma-march

If you are planning on ringing in May the Fourth you will be the first to experience the new “March of the First Order” led by Captain Phasma through Tomorrowland, meet Rey at Star Wars Launch Bay, to celebrate the return of the one and only Hyperspace Mountain and of course be the first to purchas limited edition May the Fourth merchandise.

maxresdefault.jpg

The event will begin at 6pm wit special entertainment, character encounters, along with Star Wars themed decor, and photo opportunities  There will also be some commemorative items like a lanyard, a PhotoPass and event credentials.

Beginning May 4, all Disneyland Park guests will be able to enjoy these new and returning Star Wars experiences: March of the First Order, Rey encounter and of course Hyperspace Mountain. Tickets for Annual Pass Holders will go on sale March 27, and for the general public March 29.

I was lucky enough to attend the first Disneyland After Dark: Throwback Nite and that was AMAZING! SO, when Disney announced their second Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite well lets just say I set a reminder on my phone to get my tickets! Will you be attending this galactic night?
