Dining In Disneyland Just Became Easier – Thanks To Online Dining Reservations!

Waffle

Some exciting news for Disneyland lovers – as of 10/3/13, you can now book your Dining reservations online up to 60 days before your trip

Previously, there was an email address used for Disneyland dining reservations, and this will no longer be used as of 10/3/2013 as its being replaced by the (better and more efficient!) online system. Guests can still call to make reservations if they have questions (or if they would prefer not to use the online system)

This new system includes dining reservations for restaurants in both the Disneyland and California Adventure Parks, and Downtown Disney and Disneyland Resort Hotel restaurants as well (A credit card will be required when making reservations for table service dining). I think this is a great step forward for Disneyland, and I believe it will help control the flow of diners in the Disneyland restaurants, and will also help ensure you are getting the meals you want while on vacation!

I highly recommend you utilize this system when planning your next Disneyland trip, it’s easy, fast, and a great way to help you organize your days in Disney!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Fireworks That Fascinate

Happy (slightly belated) 4th Of July to one and all! I hope you all were able to relax, enjoy a bit of time off, maybe have a BBQ, and take some time to reflect on how amazing our country is!

One of the “Traditional” things to do on Independence Day is to check out some fireworks – and that is one thing that Disney does not only on this holiday, but on every day!

TGIF FIreworks 1 Like this nightly “Wishes” display at the Magic Kingdom

TGIF Fireworks2Or this spectacular “Illuminations – Reflections Of Earth” show at Epcot that celebrates all that is great about our planet

TGIF Fireworks WOCOr this amazing laser light spectacular at Disneyland’s California Adventure Park – which doesn’t technically have any fireworks – but it does have some pretty cool effects, and you can even buy awesome Mickey ear hats that light up in time to the show’s music!

While the local fireworks shows we are checking out this 4th of July may not be quite as showy as these Disney versions, they are still fun and a great way to celebrate our country and all that makes it great!

TGIF!

2012 – A BIG Year For Disney!

BeOurGuest2

I was browsing the Disney Parks Blog and came across this interesting post, talking about the Top 5 Entertainment Changes At the Disney Parks in 2012.

So what was Disney up to in 2012? Well here are a few things that kept them pretty busy….

1. Launch of the Disney Fantasy – The Disney Cruise Line added another majestic ship to it’s fleet, full of family friendly fun entertainment options!

2. Disneyland Paris Celebrates 20 Amazing Years – And what better way to celebrate than with a new parade and fireworks show! Disney often changes up their parades and nighttime shows, which always keeps guests coming back for more! I hope to someday make it to this Park, maybe as a 10th anniversary celebration? Mickey plus the most romantic city in the world definitely sounds like a winner to me!

3. Disney California Adventure Gets an Overhaul – This California Themed Park got a facelift this year, plus they added Cars Land, dedicated to the Disney Pixar movies. I am planning a trip to Disneyland in 2014, and can’t WAIT to see all the new entertainment options available, plus there is nothing quite like visiting Disneyland (since it IS the Park where it all started!)

4. Unveiling of the New Fantasyland – Walt Disney World went through some major changes, adding a whole new Fantasyland which includes new restaurant, ride, and entertainment options. including a circus themed area where you can take a ride with Dumbo, and the addition of the Beast’s Castle and “Be Our Guest” restaurant. I was lucky enough to visit Disney in April, and I was able to experience parts of the New Fantasyland, including the new Dumbo ride, and I really love what they have done and can’t wait to see the finished product next year!

5. New Faces To Meet and Greet – One thing is for sure, everyone loves characters, no matter how old you are, meeting your favorite Disney character is always a thrill. 2012 saw the addition of a new Disney movie, Brave, as well as a new leading lady, Merida who visits the Parks to interact with guests. Tinkerbell’s sister Periwinkle, and Ralph and Vanellope from “Wreck it Ralph” also made their Park debut this year

Disney is always looking for new and interesting ways to entertain and entrance us, and I can’t wait to see what Disney has in store for us for 2013 – new restaturants? Characters? A Carsland in Walt Disney World? So many possibilities, so little time!

Happy 57th Birthday Disneyland!

 

Today on July 17, 2012, Disneyland Park in California celebrates its 57th Anniversary! It was on this day in 1955 that Walt Disney spoke these words:

“To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America, with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”

Disneyland is an amazing place, I have been blessed enough to visit it once, and am planning on visiting it again in the next few years (especially because I can’t wait to check out Cars Land and Disney California Adventure!)

Check out this article for more disneyland info and facts, and check out the official Disneyland Website to see what’s so great about this place!

Happy Birthday Disneyland, and here’s to MANY many more!
