Discovering The Science Behind Pixar at CA Science Center

When I was in high school my best friend and I decided to go to the movies. Even though we thought we were too old for cartoons we decided to check out something called Toy Story. I instantly fell in love with it and developed a lifelong appreciation for Pixar films. I’ve seen nearly every […]

Using the Going to Disneyland Guide

It’s no secret I love Disneyland. Growing up in Orange County I spent my formative years there and continue to visit it regularly. Although I pride myself on having a vast knowledge of the park I’m always open to new insights into the Happiest Place on Earth. While scrolling through Instagram one day I came […]

Christmas at Disney’s Grand Californian

In the past, my Christmas season would be a stress filled blur of constant shopping trips and trepidation over getting the perfect gift for everyone. The season would end and I would feel like it had never happened. One year I came to the realization that I was going about it all wrong. Christmastime shouldn’t […]

Saying Goodbye to Big Thunder Ranch

I love Disneyland but sometimes I think it doesn’t love me back. Over the years more and more of my favorite pieces of the park disappear – Swiss Family Treehouse…Bear Country Jamboree…PeopleMover. Oh People Mover I miss you most of all. Recently, I discovered another one of my favorite attractions is not long for this […]

A Day at D23 Expo

Since it’s inauguration in 2009 I’ve attended every D23 Expo. That’s four (it occurs every 2 years) expos for me to experience and ponder over. The first one was disappointing – it was quite small and felt hastily put together – yet I wasn’t discouraged and continued to attend. Event after event I experienced the […]

Disneyland’s Delicious Dole Whip

Back in the day most family trips to Disneyland would include a trip to the Tiki Juice Bar for a fresh pineapple spear and juice. Then one day the Dole Whip appeared. I tried it and thought it was just ok. But my sister loved it so we continued to stop for a treat. Then […]

Dapper Day Spring 2015

Oh Dapper Day! I’m so fond of you. You combine two of my favorite things – vintage fashion and Disneyland. Thank you for coming into my life. Even though I love Dapper Day this year was actually my first time back in 2 years. 2 years! Where did the time go??? On our last visit […]

Celebrating My Brithday at Carthay Circle Restaurant

I’m a grown woman and I’m not ashamed to admit that I love Disneyland. I grew up in the shadow of the mouse and have been to the park more times than I can count. And still it gets me. Every. Single. Time. So this year when my birthday rolled around you can guess where […]

Meeting Shag at WonderGround Gallery

It’s been awhile since I mentioned Shag (three years, wow!) but I’m still a big fan of his work. This past week a piece commissioned by Disney debuted at the WonderGround Gallery and he happened to be there signing his work. I, of course, had to go. As you can see the piece is charming […]
