Disneyland Firehouse Band Playing on Main Street

Walking around Main Street one sunny October afternoon, I came across these guys just wailing away. They’re called “The Hook and Ladder Company” and they are a lot of fun. Keep an eye out for the clarinet player tho…I swear it’s Ed Helms from “The Office and “The Hangover” moonlighting at the Happiest Place on […]

Halloween Disneyland

In the tradition of the Halloween season, I figured it was only fitting to post a new Disneyland Halloween video, especially since I won’t be able to visit the park myself this year.  Now this should put you in the Halloween spirit

More Billy Hill and the Hillbillies

As I’ve discussed in a previous post, one of my favorite things to do while in Disneyland is catch Billy Hill and the Hillbillies at the Golden Horseshoe Saloon. So on our last trip a couple of weeks ago, we decided to give our feet a rest, grab some chicken strips and a root beer […]

Mickey in Bloom

Since 2004, I don’t think I’ve taken a trip to Disneyland without some sort of camera in my hands. And there’s been a couple of times when I’ve carried two…plus a video camera. I guess you could say I’m a little obsessed. But you never know when you might come across the perfect shot at […]

Just Looking For A Laughing Place

Down at the very end of Critter Country, behind Splash Mountain, is a quiet, comfortable, relaxing little hideaway that I like to visit. There’s not much there…The Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh Ride, the photo op area where you can take pictures with Pooh, Tigger, and Eeyore, the Winnie the Pooh gift shop that […]

Mickey’s ToonTown Turns 19

Back in 1993, on January 24th, Disneyland opened its newest land…Mickey’s Toontown! Inspired by the movie, “Who Framed Roger Rabbit?“, Toontown allowed us humans to finally take a trip into the never before seen land of cartoons and see how our favorite animated stars lived. Although there aren’t a lot of rides there, (really only […]

Sleeping Beauty Castle Holiday Lighting

Disneyland at Christmastime is nothing but a fun filled wonderland overflowing with magic at every turn. One of the most magical moments I’ve experienced is the nightly lighting of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle as it comes alive with Holiday Enchantment and Beauty. Even at only a few minutes in length, it’s still enough to give you […]

Lighting the Christmas Tree on Main Street

In as many times as I’ve been to Disneyland, I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen them light the Christmas tree that stands in the middle of town square on Main Street. This year, while waiting for the “Christmas Fantasy Parade” to start, I managed to secure a spot on the platform of the train […]

Billy Hill and the Hillbillies in Disneyland

One of my favorite things to do during a day in Disneyland is to go to the Golden Horseshoe in Frontierland and watch Billy Hill and the Hillbillies perform. The Horseshoe is a great place to go and sit a while, relax and unwind for a bit, and maybe have a refreshing root beer float, […]

Mickey and Walt

Such a great sight to see down at the end of Main Street.

The Majestic Matterhorn

I can still remember a time, back in the olden days, when this was the first sight you’d see from I-5 that would let you know that you were finally at the Big D. Nowadays you gotta wait till you’re in the park to see it, but it’s still a beautiful sight.

The Flower Mickey

Ah, that smiling face that greets you as you enter the park. Is there anything more magical and smile inducing?   I can’t think of a more perfect way to start my morning

What makes Disney so Great?

So let me try and explain to you why I’m so into Disney, and Disneyland in particular. Because people ask me all the time and I have to sort of redeem myself as to why a forty-something year old man wears so many Mickey Mouse shirts and takes so many trips to Disneyland. These are […]
