Arizona POGO pass discount + Disneyland ticket giveaway

We have a long list of local summer activities on our wish list before my daughter starts kindergarten next month. But with our summer budget already reached with travel planned later this month the likelihood of us visiting all the attractions on our list was not looking good. Then our family started using the POGO pass. For less than I would pay to visit just one attraction, our entire family is enjoying fun activities and attending events all year! To make the deal even better, through Read More... {Read More...}

Power Dad’s smile everyday: Disneyland Teacups

Father's Day at our house is usually celebrated with dinner and few handmade gifts from my daughter to her daddy. Giving gifts is very exciting for a five year old and she was frustrated to hear her daddy didn't have anything special on his wishlist this year. She insisted on giving him the best gift ever. When I asked her most favorite thing to do with her dad, she quickly responded, "spinning on the teacups!" We visit Disneyland often and the memories they have made on the teacups over the Read More... {Read More...}

Dining in Disneyland: Cafe Orleans (Monte Cristo Sandwich review)

Earlier this year while attending the TECHmunch LA conference at Disneyland, I had the opportunity to learn about Disneyland dining options. As often as my family goes to Disneyland, I already considered myself a Disney food expert but was blown away by all the new food I discovered during the conference. Visiting Disneyland with out my daughter allowed me to spend more time in a few park restaurants with friends. With my family we are big fans of quick dining options like the Hungry Bear Read More... {Read More...}

Disney Social Media Moms Celebration 2014 #DisneySMMoms

From the time I first learned about the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration happening each year at varying Disney resorts, I dreamed of receiving an invitation. I grew up visiting Disneyland each summer with my family while my husband grew up visiting Disney World. Together we are a Disney loving pair with a five year old daughter that could navigate herself through Disneyland because we visit so frequently. From our daughter's first Disney pin trading experience to celebrating a birthday in Read More... {Read More...}

Watch as Maleficent interrupts Elle Fanning’s birthday song at the #DisneySMMoms Celebration

Attending the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration at Disneyland was an amazing experience for my family.  With so many unbelievable opportunities and experiences during the four day conference, it's challenging to select our favorites.

A rare visit to Club 33 in Disneyland

  Our Disney loving family fell in love with the idea of being Club 33 members from the time we learned of the club inside Disneyland. The private club is located next to the Blue Bayou restaurant and is only open to members and their guests. We put our names on the wait list in 2005 and never received any correspondence from Disneyland regarding the club. Finally, in 2012, we received a golden envelope with the Club 33 logo. Opening the envelope was a monumental moment for us. Over 7 Read More... {Read More...}

The Disney FROZEN character experience at Disneyland was my daughter's most favorite attraction during our park visit. The line was intimidating and the sign suggested the wait was over two hours. With out any protesting, my daughter happily waited in line to meet Anna and Elsa.  The talking Read More... {Read More...}

Disneyland Party & Family Game Room

I previously shared our excitement in opening our Disney Side @Home Celebration party hostess box. I received free products in order to host the Disney Side party including everything I would need to invite friends over for fun. This year the Disney parks have chosen to celebrate guests showing off their "Disney Side" and I couldn't think of a better way to join the fun than by changing my daughter's play room into a Disneyland themed family game room. Our Disney Side party was the room debut Read More... {Read More...}
