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!
Alexander: It’s never a dull moment at Disneyland Resort!
As frequently as we seem to be there now, noticeable changes are always taking place at The Happiest Place On Earth.
Most notably, Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout! has opened to the public!
Continue reading “Guardians of the Galaxy – Mission: Breakout + MORE!”
Alexander: Time for a quick update from the Happiest Place on Earth, staring our favorite Disneyland roller coaster, Matterhorn Bobsleds!
Sean: Guardians of the Galaxy- Mission: Breakout! is already well received by many, and there are still plenty of Disney fans that are upset that Tower of Terror has left Disney California Adventure Park. We’re actually quite excited for the relaunch of the drop ride and the ride looks surprisingly much better than the original concepts! Let’s take a look at the exterior as of the first week of April: Continue reading “Guardians of the Galaxy- Mission: Breakout! – Exterior Early April”
Zach: While illness prevented us from visiting the Disneyland Resort over the week or so, some spring time sunshine provided for a beautiful (busy) weekend visit. Star Wars Land and Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout construction is coming along quite nicely so we snapped some pictures, but first we start this article with a (not really) Dramatic announcement! Continue reading “Disneyland Resort Update – Late March – Early April”
As we’re slowly getting in to adding the Disneyland Resort to our full-time coverage, we will more frequently drop quick updates! Here’s a late February update in which we look around Disney California Adventure Park and Disneyland Park and the never-ending refurbishments! 😀 Continue reading “Disneyland Resort Update – Late February 2017”
On a lazy weekday in February, we ventured back out to the Disneyland Resort just a few days after the fire scare in the Mickey and Friends Parking Structure. There was no visible closure of any level in Mickey and Friends so it was business as usual at the Resort. Plainly visible, however, was the amount of construction going on around the park and the amount of marketing for AP Days and the return of Main Street Electrical Parade (for a limited time). Continue reading “Disneyland Resort Update – February 15th 2017”
Disney is the largely-undisputed theme park king of the planet. The cornerstone of Walt Disney Theme Park success is an ever growing, envelope pushing, industry leading, storytelling (the most important part) attraction lexicon that far outmatches the likes of its competitors. Six unique Disney Resorts play host to a sizable chunk of the world’s greatest, most significant, and/or most successful theme park rides, each playing a specific role within one of the many thematic stories that weave their way through each park’s atmospheric tapestry. Continue reading “Worldwide Walt Disney Attractions Top 20”
We’re finally back at the Disneyland Resort as the holiday season and crowds are over and done with. A lot has happened in both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure since we last had an official update so there’s a lot to cover! Continue reading “New Rides Added to the Fastpass – Disneyland and California Adventure Park Update!”
We’ve rated and reviewed many coasters and rides over the last few years, and although we’re usually not fans of listing/ranking rides or parks, we do create an annual California TOP 50! You might, and likely will, disagree, and that’s totally fine! That’s what this TOP 50 is all about! Of the many rides in the state, we selected the 50 we think are best! Here are places 30-21 in the California TOP 50 of 2016! Continue reading “California TOP 50 – 2016 – Part THREE (30-21)”
