T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Dreaming Of Disney (LAND That Is!)

I mostly write about how much I love Walt Disney World and how great of a place it is for adults (not just kids!), but today I find myself thinking of the place that started it all – Disneyland Park

I have been lucky enough to get to travel to Disneyland once – and I am hoping to go back someday and get to spend more time getting to know the Park that Walt built, the place where he saw his visions come to life!

Here’s a few reasons why I cannot WAIT to get back to Disneyland:

Mickey’s Toontown may have been dismantled at Disney World to make room for the New Fantasyland, but fear not – as Toontown fans can still get their fix at Disneyland! Visit Mickey’s house, take a ride on Gadget’s Go Coaster, and top if off with a hot dog at Pluto’s Dog House (yum!)

Disneyland Park has many of the same rides as the Magic Kingdom, but they are not exactly the same – there are subtle differences in décor, styling, and the rides themselves – can you spot all the differences? When I rode Pirates of the Caribbean, I noticed the waiting area and entrance were different – and I loved getting to experience the unique qualities of the ride!

I had one of these when I was little – the brim was so heavy that when I fell asleep on the monorail my parents said my head dropped forward under the weight. I have never seen one for sale at Disney World since then, but I did spot this one at Disneyland!

Once awesome ride difference? The Mad Tea Party is OUTSIDE at Disneyland – isn’t that beautiful?

Oh, and so is part of “It’s A Small World” – love the topiaries and the outside of the building!

Looking at all these pics makes me want to go back SO BADLY. Oh – and one more thing to mention – Disneyland just happens to be in beautiful sunny California – a BIG WIN for someone like me (from Upstate NY where it snows 6-ish months a year!). Hoping to plan a trip to Disneyland soon – but until then, I shall keep on dreamin’…

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Showing Some Disney Love

TGIFVday MM

Yesterday was one of my favorite days of the year – Valentine’s Day, and I know many (ok, most) people don’t like it, or think its stupid or just a “Hallmark Holiday”, and they are right, to some extent ha, but to me, the day is about a chance to show your love in a new, different way, or to take a change and confess your love to someone new. Plus I like red and pink and hearts, so that helps too!

For those of you who were lucky enough to celenrate this day of love at WDW, I hope you were able to check out their “Celebration Of True Love” at the Magic Kingdom Park, where couples were able to renew and reaffirm their love for each other at Cinderella’s Castle! This was a part of “True Love Week”, which is a part of the year long WDW’s Limited Time Magic celebration that continues on all throughout 2013!

Oh, and while you’re in Disney World, don’t forget to sample some delicious Valentine’s Treats!

Another part of the “Limited Time Magic” campaign is the transformation of Cinderella’s Castle in Disney World and It’s A Small World in Disneyland Park – during the nightly “The Magic, The Memories, and You!” show, these are turned into beautiful red and pink displays, perfect for Valentine’s Day lovers on both coasts!

…If you happen to be in the doghouse because you forgot about V-Day, I recommend you check out the Disney Store’s selection of Valentine’s Gifts….better late than never right?
