The NEW Disneyland Hotel: A perfect blend of nostalgia & modern amenities

The first Disney property I ever stayed at was the Disneyland Hotel. It was also the property we chose when we took our three-year-old niece on her first trip to Disneyland in 2002. We have tons of photos of her at the hotel — smiling in front of the statue of Mickey Mouse, riding the elevators (she was living in a town that didn’t have many such fancy contraptions, so, for her, this was as much fun as Disneyland itself), splashing around in the Neverland pool, and, of course, eating lots of meals at Goofy’s Kitchen. read more »

Disneyland's Hidden Treasures

As die-hard Disney-goers, my family and I are masters of the speed tour, powering through with a plan in hand so we can conquer all our favorite rides at least once. But over the years we’ve also learned it’s just as important to slow down and savor some of the off-the-beaten path thrills—especially in Disneyland, Walt’s original park. read more »

15 Years of Happy CityPASS Travelers

15 Years of Happy CityPASS TravelersSpring 2012 marks the 15th anniversary of CityPASS! The idea officially launched back in 1997 after Mike Morey and Mike Gallagher came up with the great idea to bundle a city's attractions and help travelers save money. Now, 15 years later the idea has expanded into 11 North American travel destinations and created over 8,000,000 happy travelers. read more »

Savings and Sun in So Cal

Winter always gets me thinking about going to theme parks in Southern California, even if I don't have visitors underfoot. The prospect of cooler temperatures and lighter crowds in February and March sends me looking for discounts on the high cost of tickets. I found that the Southern California CityPASS - with a flat rate for admission to Disneyland, Disney California Adventure, Universal Studios Hollywood and SeaWorld San Diego - offers good savings, even when compared with incentives for SoCal residents. read more »

Escape the Winter Blues with a Trip to L.A.

Most of the time, I love living in a part of the country that has four distinct weather seasons. But when winter’s grip is deep and strong, as it is now, I find myself longing for a warm respite. Oh, to be in Los Angeles, where February’s average temperatures range from 49 degrees F to 69 degrees F… where fresh produce still graces farmers markets … where amusement parks still flicker with lights… where you can walk about without the added poundage of winter attire… Let’s go! read more »

Exploring and Enjoying Santa Monica

As the second largest city in the United States, the Los Angeles area has a lot to offer visitors. The reality is that you could spend years in L.A. without seeing all that there is to see. From Hollywood to Anaheim and Ventura to Long Beach, the possibilities are endless. Making a weekend trip is even more daunting, especially if it’s your first time to the area. A good strategy is to pick one area to focus on when visiting, rather than trying to do too much. With that in mind, I’ll focus on Santa Monica, which is one of Los Angeles’ more enchanting communities. read more »

It's only available only for a limited time around the holidays at the Plaza Inn, so if you're planning a visit to Disneyland in the next few weeks and have anything resembling a sweet tooth, give it a try and let us know how it is! read more »

Club 33: Disneyland’s Best-Kept Secret

It is Disneyland’s most exclusive and expensive restaurant. Yet many people walk right by the inconspicuous entrance without realizing what’s behind it. Discreetly located between the Pirates of the Caribbean exit and The Blue Bayou restaurant, on Royal Street in New Orleans Square, Club 33 is a posh, member’s-only eatery. read more »
