We had a great time at Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure Park this past Saturday thanks to Los Angelista, Disneyland and everyone that voted for us. We had an awesome time.
A few days before the “day”, we receive an email from Michele Himmelberg from the office of Disneyland Resort Public Relations with our itinerary. We knew then it was going to be a great day!
We arrived at the Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and were informed by parking attendant to go straight to the red carpet for our complimentary valet parking. From there we went to the registration desk so we can receive our park hopper passes. We also made reservation for free makeovers for the girls by Studio Disney 365.
We decided to start the day at the Disney’s California Adventure Park where my 7 seven year old discover her favorite ride, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Miss “scary cat” discovered that day that she loves thrills rides. Around 1:00pm, we went to Disneyland for more fun and to watch performance of “Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee”. The show was inspired by the new Walt Disney Pictures animated film “The Princess and the Frog”.
At 6pm, we went back to the Grand Californian Hotel for a dinner reception. When we arrived for dinner, we were greeted by Mickey, Minny and Mrs. Clause. The girls went straight to the Studio Disney 365 booth for their makeover and my husband and I went straight to an elegant buffet of turkey, prime rib, mashed potatoes (in a martini glass), salads, pastas and of course desserts. After their makeover, the girls were treated to their own buffet dinner of chicken strips and macaroni and cheese.
After dinner, we relaxed and watch a Disney fashion show while the girls played in the kids area complete with an airbrush tattoo artist, cookies decorating kit, Wii station, coloring books and crayons.
After the reception, we were guided back to Disneyland for a reserved viewing of “Believe in Holiday Magic” Fireworks show and snowfall. We left Disneyland around 10:15pm and the silence from the backseat told us that everyone had a great time!
