Skyline Lounge Review!

Saturday 7/7/18 was one of the best nights EVER! I was able to go to the Tomorrowland Skyline Lounge with my mom, two older cousins and their practically perfect little one also known as my baby cousin (BC), so here is my review about the Skyline Lounge.

We all checked in about 8:10pm because my BC was at the Pixar Dance Party, so we walked over to the cast member (Josh) at the bottom of the lounge where we received a wristband and lanyard this is also where we payed. Once everything was settled, we were told the rules of the lounge. Once, the rules were explained we headed up the ramp where we were handed our plate of goodies and waited to be seated.

Once we took our seats, we were seated with another family who were very sweet. We had a really nice time with them and it really made the experience twenty times nicer. While we waited for the fireworks to start we played jenga, connect 4, and lightsabers  with my BC. Then Minnie Mouse came out to play and say hey. My BC also got a once in a lifetime experience and that was to play connect 4 with Minnie, BUT what made my heart completely and utterly melt was when the fireworks started at 9:30 we had my BC stand on the chair so she could see over the railings and about 5 minutes into the fireworks my BC put her arms around mine and my moms shoulder and that is how we watched the show, with her arms around us and we got a kiss every now and then.

Overall the experience was amazing and the cast members were there if we needed anything. Being up there was very relaxing and the view was INCREDIBLE even before the fireworks watching the sun go down was beautiful. Would I do this again? I think so, the smile that my cousin had priceless and the entire experience was completely magical and I really enjoyed everything about the Tomorrowland Skyline Lounge.

The San Francisco Columbarium

The Columbarium is San Francisco’s one of a kind historical landmark originally built in 1897 by British architect Bernard J. Cahill. Unfortunately, in 1902-1910 cemetery burials and cremations were banned and people were forced to move their families remains elsewhere leaving the Columbarium abandoned. In 1980 The Neptune Society bought the building asking Emmitt Watson to continue his work on the building. He has been painting, gardening and parking while leading services, internments and tours at the Columbarium for about half his life.

Disneyland:

Skyline Lounge!

My upcoming trip was already very exciting, I get to check out Pixar Fest taste all the new treats BUT it just got more magical! Today, I decided to splurge a bit and reserve seats at the Skyline Lounge for my mom and me to watch the fireworks.

It’s $60 per person but you can drink all you want (non-alcoholic) and you get a plate of desserts. Plus, there are charging stations, games along with an amazing view of the park and fireworks. Would you ever make reservations at the skylight lounge?

The Queen Anne Hotel!

The Queen Anne Hotel formerly known as Miss Lakes School for Young Ladies was built in the 1890’s by a mining millionaire James Graham Fair. The school operated for about six years with Mary Lake as the principal, and unfortunately closed in 1896 two years after Fair’s death. In the 1980’s the building became The Queen Anne Hotel a very posh bed and breakfast where you can find one of San Francisco’s friendliest ghost, Mary Lake.

It’s rumored that the headmistress was upset when the school closed from lack of resources and funding. Guests say she never truly left her position which means you have a chance to see her walking around the hotel or if you hit a cold spot you know you are in the midst of a ghost. Some say if you truly want a paranormal experience, you should say in Miss Lake’s room, room 410. This is where guests have reported seeing Miss Lake unpacking their clothes, picking up items that have falling and even tucking guests into bed who aren’t properly under the covers. You can find The Queen Anne Hotel at 1590 Sutter Street. Would you stay here?

Would you buy a ticket for Disney After Hours? I know I would, yes it is a lot of money but you get the park pretty much to yourself! How cool is that? There are barely any lines and I don’t think I would buy a ticket for the day and just hang out at my hotel until the event starts because the line would be so short!
