When you arrive at Plaza Inn you have the option to dine at the restaurant or take your food to go and explore the park. I absolutely love Plaza Inn and A Christmas Fantasy Parade so I 100% think this is worth it.

If it like the viewing package for the Electrical Parade its a standing view area, but I still had an amazing time with that one as well. Will you do book this dining package or will you pass?

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!

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:

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:

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!

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!

Disney After Dark: Star War Nite #2?

Yesterday, Disney announced that due to high demand of the DAD: Star Wars Nite will have a second night of galactic fun. Yes, so May 9, 2018 will be the second night of celebration. Tickets for this event will go on sale May 1, 2018. My only concern with this is I have heard that the first night (May 3) will have a lot less than the second night (May 9). May the 9th night will have a solo pin, more character and more photo opportunities, supposedly. These could just be rumors but it would be terrible for all the people who did purchase the first night but awesome for the ones who get the second night.

Hopefully, Disney knows what they are doing because either way they are going to get a lot of complaints. If you bought for the first night do you think its fair Disney put out a second night? If you are planning buying for the second night do you think it’s going to be better than the first night? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.

My Disneyland Candy Cane Experience! 

Its a Disneyland tradition to make their famous candy canes every holiday season, but if you have never heard about them be sure to check out the  Candy Cane History to read the magic behind them!

 

Now the tradition only happens on select days and the first day of the candy cane making was Friday Nov. 25 and the second day Saturday, Nov. 26. I had two amazing experiences both days but also completely different as well.

Day 1:

Friday November 25, 2016

Candy canes were for sale at Candy Palace in Disneyland and i got into the park about 8:40am 40 minutes after the park has opened. I immediately saw cast members outside the Candy Palace holding wristbands, there was only one person in front of me, so i didn’t have to wait.

My return time to pick up the candy cane was 10:30am so as I rode some rides and walked around the park until i picked up the candy cane, which someone was checking wristbands and letting the cashier know the amount ( 1 per guest, but there were 3 in my family) and than took our wristbands in exchange for the candy canes.

Day 2:

Saturday November 26, 2016

Over in Disney California Adventure it was Trolley Treats turn to make the candy canes and i decided to get to the parks before park opening. So i arrived at 7:15 and the gate opened at 7:30 and everyone rushed over to Trolley Treats and i was about 10th in line to get a wristband but there was so many people behind me.

The line was still moving really fast and when i got to get my wristband they asked if i wanted it now or pick up later, and i was like now please, then waited in a line to get the get the candy cane itself which took maybe a minute two at the most and after shopping and picking up gifts for my cousin we got out of the park at 7:55 am.

Overall the experience was MAGICAL and both times the candy canes were still warm and it was just an amazing experience. The cast members were crazy and i loved it they were just extra magical and made the experience amazing!

So if you are in the parks any of the days they are making candy canes i suggest getting one and don’t let the price scare you because they are worth every penny! Will you be making a special stop to get a Disneyland Candy Cane? Or have you gotten one already? If so what was your experience like? Let me know in the comments below!
