Nestled in the suburbs of Anaheim, about 20 miles away from Disneyland is Castle Peak and Thunder Railroad. Have you heard of it? If you haven’t, you are in for a treat! It’s a backyard garden and railroad that’s designed and constructed by architect David Sheegog!

In one word– it is AMAZING. I first found out about it from a mom friend who lives in the area and forgot about it until recently. He opens up his backyard on select weekends for people to come visit for free! View Post

Why An Annual Passholder Should Attend Mickey’s Halloween Party

Mickeys Halloween Party, Disneyland, Halloween Party, Disney

Earlier this month, my daughter (A) and I attended Mickey’s Halloween Party. When tickets went on sale in the summer, I didn’t even attempt to buy tickets. We have annual passes so I didn’t think it was worth paying the extra money for tickets to the party. However, my friends from Treehouse Threads always make it point to come down every year for the party. They attend the first two parties every year! I was curious as to what all the fuss was about. So I decided to buy tickets. BUT when I finally made the decision to buy tickets, the last day sold out! View Post

On Friday, Oct. 19, I attended a media preview of the newly reimagined World of Disney at Downtown Disney! The official reopening is Oct. 26th but it will be open throughout the weekend and week. For over a year, they have been working on the design and development of the store to make it the ultimate shopping experience for guests! And you guys- it was AMAZING! I saw sections of the store (brick walls, wood floors,) as they were redesigning throughout the past year but seeing it all put together was absolutely incredible!!

Entrance to Pixar Pier

  1. The Pixar Pier sign is such an beautiful backdrop for pictures. You can take a picture as you enter the pier or as you exit to get the “Adventure Is Out There” signage. If you come at rope drop, you can take advantage of an empty pier. But even with people on the pier, your pictures will still look amazing because this sign is so colorful!
