Disneyland 2012 – Day 3

Today was finally the big day… the all-new, re-imagineered California Adventure for the first time! We had a lot of trepidation about walking into this new park for the first time because we had been some of the few guests that really enjoyed the previous incarnation of DCA, but when we stepped onto Buena Vista […]

Trip Planning Tuesday – Disneyland and Destination D

When this summer was just a blossom on the calendar, it held the promise of being the best summer I've had in a long time… unfortunately, it didn't turn out quite that way, so now my upcoming trip to Disneyland sounds that much sweeter.

I know this […]

Flashback Friday – Christmas in the Esplanade

As I’ve mentioned before on Rays of Disneyland, my family likes California Adventure… in all of its not-quite-themed-enough glory, we have a fondness for Disneyland’s neighbor. It’s no surprise, then, that I was so sad the day that those giant CALIFORNIA letters in the esplanade came tumbling down. I liked that the insides of the […]
