A Ride in the Teacups

    I would like to make reservations for dessert dining during fireworks the week of March 13 through March 17. Have those reservations been released? If not, when can I expect to see them? I don't want to miss a thing! Thank you!

    Hey there, Lorin! Welcome back to planDisney! Can you believe you are just one month away  from some magical days and nights at the Disneyland Resort? I can already feel the pixie dust making its way to you!

    There is so much to take in, especially on a first visit! I know exactly how you feel about not wanting to miss a thing. I still feel that way every time I'm planning a trip to the Happiest Place on Earth, and I've lost count of the number of times I've walked through those gates! I know my fellow panelist Kristen N. recently gave you all the latest and greatest news about current nighttime offerings, including some excellent tips and secret viewing spots that I will be using myself on my next visit! We are still waiting for more news on when dining and dessert packages will be returning. I would keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog or give the Disneyland Instagram a follow, and you'll be one of the first to hear of any new announcements.

    As you get closer to your trip, take a peek at the Entertainment Schedule for any updates as well. While it doesn't look like times are set quite yet for your dates, I know Kristen mentioned the current nighttime show - Mickey's Mix Magic. I haven't seen it myself yet, but I've heard it's hard not to dance your heart out to the music, lights, and projections! Typically, fireworks do light up the sky on weekends for this show. Since you are arriving on a Sunday, you might want to pencil this in for your first night if you have your heart set on seeing some sparklers!

    There is truly nothing like walking down Main Street, U.S.A. for the first time. Just as you are strolling through Town Square, glance over to the left and you'll see a light in the window above the Disneyland Fire Station. This is actually Walt's apartment where he and his wife Lillian would often stay - can you believe it? I just love that Disneyland is full of these little nostalgic nuggets. Make a reservation at Carnation Cafe - a perfect little hideaway just off of Main Street where you can even find Walt's Chili on the menu, or dine at the Plaza Inn with views of Sleeping Beauty Castle for Minnie & Friends - Breakfast In The Park. Lillian Disney herself picked out some of the Victorian decor at the Plaza Inn - don't miss the stained glass ceiling! Of course, a Disneyland day is not complete without some classic attractions like Dumbo the Flying Elephant, Mad Tea Party, and Jungle Cruise. And finally, be sure to stop into The Mad Hatter on Main Street, U.S.A. for a pair of custom, classic Mickey Ears commemorating this first visit. 

    Lorin, know that no matter how you spend your days, you are sure to be making some very special forever memories. The beauty of the Disneyland Resort is that it's not quite possible to do it all, so there's always a little magic left over for the next time. If you have any other questions, come see us again!

    Magic awaits!

Hello from Philly! Disney Parks have been my heart and soul since my 3-year old feet first hit Main Street, U.S.A. Nothing compares to the burst of pure joy, nostalgia and magic that I feel EVERY time I enter the gates!

Whether it's park days with friends, multi-generational trips, toddling around with kids or flying solo, I'm ready to help you personalize the magic at the Happiest Place On Earth!
