Sean: The last Disney resort I had yet to visit was Hong Kong Disneyland. It had been a wild 9 months in which we visited all Disney parks around the world, and it ended with the one I knew the least about, the one that was always overshadowed by the more significant Disney parks. Upon visiting Hong Kong Disneyland it became clear why I, and many others, overlook this park. The park’s young age yet old feel has both its advantages and disadvantages.

Alexander: Generally, when planning a visit to Walt Disney World, a stay-length of 3 days minimum is what people consider (because 1 & 2 day passes aren’t exactly a great value – the longer you stay, the cheaper each day is). But what if you had just *1* day to pile on Walt Disney World’s highlights?
Upon being gifted 2 “Magic Your Way” 1-day passes (during a quick visit from our native LA), Sean and I did just that: Walt Disney World in ONE DAY! This was Sean’s first time at any of WDW’s 4 parks, and our goal was to hit as many of the resort’s coasters and signature rides as possible! Let’s GO!
Alexander: After spending an evening at Disneyland Park last week, we decided to devote an entire day to Disneyland Resort this week! There’s SO MUCH new stuff to see!
Nick: Earlier this summer, Toy Story land opened at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The land’s signature attraction is Slinky Dog Dash, a Mack Rides LSM launched family coaster. We recently got to go check it out, so read on to find out our thoughts!
Alexander: Hello! How is everyone’s summer going?
After a long period of blackout days for our passes, the conclusion of summer means we once again have access to The Happiest Place One Earth!
Nick: Hello everyone! My name is Nick, and I’ll be joining the California Coaster Kings team to bring you updates and coverage from the Florida theme parks! I’ve been a huge fan of theme parks all my life, so I can’t wait to start creating and sharing content with all you CCK readers!

Sven: Since the Walt Disney Company took over the resort in Paris, we have seen quite a few changes. One look at the event calendar and you’ll have a hard time planning when to visit. Traditionally, the summer seasons holds a special theme though and this year, something brand new awaits you. What they can’t do in California, they can do in Paris: the Marvel Summer of Heroes! Continue reading “Disneyland Paris Update – Marvel Summer of Heroes – June 17th 2018”
Alexander: After a trip of wins, we finally took a loss on the final parks of our Europe tour, Disneyland Park Paris and Walt Disney Studios.
While Efteling, Walibi, De Warbeek, Slagharen, Movie Park, and Phantasialand (swoon) all shattered expectations, Disneyland Paris Resort showed us why it’s the weakest link in Disney’s 6-link chain. Continue reading “Disneyland Paris Resort”
Alexander: It’s been several weeks since we last touched base with The Happiest Place on Earth, so why don’t we have a look-see? Continue reading “Pixar Pier at Disneyland Resort”
Sean: As you may know we visited Shanghai Disneyland a few weeks back, and we had an absolutely amazing time. Instead of a trip report, I decided to make it a bit more structural and discuss each of the 6 themed lands at Shanghai Disneyland, their attractions, and my thoughts on them! Continue reading “A Look At Shanghai Disneyland”
Sean: It has been a few weeks since I traveled across the globe in search for an exciting roller coaster that not many people have had the chance to ride, but that everyone is already obsessed with. My travels took me to Shanghai Disneyland, which is home to TRON: Lightcycle Power Run. Perhaps the best coaster Disney has ever opened. Continue reading “The World isn’t Good Enough for TRON: Lightcycle Power Run, but Walt Disney World Might Be.”
Alexander: Ni hao!
Welcome to a very special Disney update!
Those of you who follow us on social media may be aware of a little Shanghai, China trip we took at the end of last month. While this was my 2nd time visiting Shanghai Disneyland, it was a new Disney Resort for Sean (his 2nd ever, after Disneyland Resort Anaheim).
Alexander: Another day, another slew of changes for Disneyland Resort.
After a lovely visit to Knott’s Berry Farm to cover Hang Time as it rapidly approaches completion, we hopped over to Disneyland Resort to see how things are doing post-holidays 2017.
(spoiler alert: everything is a mess)
Alexander: Ho Ho Ho!!!
It’s time for a holiday-tastic visit to Disneyland Resort!
There’s plenty to enjoy at Disney during the holiday season, but my personal favorite is it’s a small world holiday (which, at this point, I’d have to say is my absolute #1 favorite Disney attraction).
We were treated to a particularly-special ride on small world (more on that later), so we took the opportunity to do a full write-up on the classic flume’s holiday overlay. Continue reading “Disneyland Christmas & small world holiday Exposé”
Alexander: Sean and I like to go to Disneyland on a monthly basis to see what’s going on at The Happiest Place On Earth. Never a dull moment at the big D!
The Disneyland Railroad is finally open again, and things have changed quite a bit! Still as great a ride as ever, though; perhaps even better now!
