T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy 60th Anniversary To Disneyland Park!

60 8

“To all that 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”

This month (July 17th, to be exact!) marks the 60th anniversary of the opening of Disneyland – where Walt stood before the crowd and spoke these words. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 60 years, and in true Disney fashion, this “diamond” celebration is one all-out party!

New fireworks show, new World Of Color show, merchandise, food, giveaways – they are covering all their bases with this celebration! I just wish that Walt himself was alive to see how his vision has flourished and what it has become – a place that so many people love to visit and call their “home away from home”

Check out more ways they’re celebrating this milestone here

Happy Anniversary Disneyland – and here’s to MANY many more years of entertaining, laughter, fun, memories, and magic!

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 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!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – World Of Color Shines At Disneyland


As you may know (or can tell from this blog!), I am a huge Walt Disney World Fan. I love everything about it, and would live there if I could! Occasionally though, my mind does wander to thoughts of Disneyland, Walt Disney’s first original Theme Park.

They have some amazing attractions at Disneyland, and one thing that sets them apart is their World Of Color show – a truly amazing water and laser light spectacular put on nightly at Disney’s California Adventure Park. Watch Disney characters come to life with music and effects that are trule breathtaking!

As if this show isn’t awesome enough, Disney has come out with their Glow With The Show Ear Hats which are Mickey ear hats featuring light up ears, and when worn at the World of Color show, they sync to the music and the colors change along with the show (which has got to be one of the coolest things I have ever heard of!)

My husband and I are planning a trip to Disneyland for September of 2014, which we are very excited about for a few reasons – it wll be his first trip to Disneyland (and his first trip to the West Coast!), and we can’t wait to see Space Mountain and The Haunted Mansion all decorated for Halloween, plus we can’t wait to see all the amazing things in store for us at Disney’s California Adventure.

The biggest reason I can’t wait to go is that Disneyland Park is the ONLY Disney park that Walt himself got to see completed. The Man Behind The Mouse walked the streets of Disneyland, and that is truly something, that by itself is reason enough to go!
