Spooky Treats Halloween Time!
October 09, 2013
It's Halloween season - time for tricks and treats, right? The Disneyland Resort chefs have had a few tricks up their sleeves, and have rolled out a huge line-up of special menu items for the season, both savory and sweet.

Disney Announces Changes to Guest Assistance Card Program
October 04, 2013
As of October 9, 2013, the Guest Assistance Card, one of Disney's programs to assist guests with disabilities at Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts, is being discontinued. The program, which provides access to attractions for guests with disabilities, is being modified to help serve the guests who truly need it, as well as control abuse with the current program. The new Disability Access Service (DAS) Card will replace the Guest Assistance Card. Guests will be able to request a Disability Access Service Card at Guest Relations, and they will receive a return time for attractions based on the current wait time. Guests can still visit Guest Relations to discuss their individual situations for assistance that is responsive to their unique circumstances.

Hidden Mickey Search
September 08, 2013
I enjoyed the show "Mickey and the Magical Map" in Fantasyland at Disneyland, California. In fact, the show was so entertaining, I had difficulty concentrating on Hidden Mickey images! Actually, you can find the first two images below before the show starts. A gold classic Mickey made of circles is in the middle of a stained glass window at the far left side of the stage. This Hidden Mickey is best viewed from close to the stage.
Do You Have a Disney Room?
September 08, 2013
Do you have a Disney Room? I think every Disney fan should have one. If you are an obsessive Disney collector, like Carol, a Disney Room is imperative!
When Carol and I first started dating she proudly showed me a small cabinet containing her collection of Disney music boxes. They were displayed in a bookcase, about three shelves, with glass doors. Nice! She also showed me her Disney themed Collector Plates and some very nice porcelain Mickey Mouse Figurines.
Carthay Circle Restaurant
September 08, 2013
With the new Buena Vista Street, instead of depicting California as it is today, guests are transported to Los Angeles of the 1920s, the time when Walt Disney first arrived. Now much more similar to Main Street USA at Disneyland, Buena Vista Street includes an array of shopping, dining, and entertainment. Guests can hop aboard the Red Car Trolley as it takes them past stores such as Oswald's Gas and Oil, Elias and Company Department Store, Mortimer's Market, and the Fiddler, Fifer and Practical Cafe and Bakery. The crown jewel of Buena Vista Street, however, is a replica of the Carthay Circle Theater; it has become to California Adventure what Sleeping Beauty Castle is at Disneyland or Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom.
