Alexander: For years we’ve been compiling a list of the top coasters/attractions in the state of California to cap the end of each season. With 2018 came the introduction of our Florida branch, and so too comes a Top 10 list for the state of Florida.
Alexander: When you run the biggest theme park chain in the world, your biggest successes become household names. I would bet money that the number of households in the U.S. that have heard of Space Mountain outweigh the number that haven’t, and Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most globally-recognized intellectual properties (thank you, Johnny Depp).
Sean: Though I had been to the Tokyo Disney Resort a week or so prior to visiting Tokyo Disneyland, to visit DisneySea, it was finally time for me to visit my last Disney theme park. This was it, all 12 parks within 9 months. I thought that among the shiny and unique Disney parks I had encountered Tokyo Disneyland would not stand out. After all, Disney’s best product (DisneySea) was just next door. I was pleasantly surprised. Tokyo Disneyland has something to offer that no other Disney park can. Let’s find out what that is!
Derrion: We hope everyone is enjoying their holiday. Here is a holiday treat, if you plan on visiting the Disneyland Resort, the iconic attraction is back after its refurbishment. This update will focus on some of the cosmetic changes you can see to the new the Matterhorn Bobsleds.
Nick: A permit recently filed with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection revealed some exciting new details about the Star Wars hotel, which is currently being built adjacent to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Read on to take a closer look!
Derrion: It may not be the most thrilling place in the world, but it does live up to its reputation as the happiest place on Earth for me. Disneyland is very therapeutic and keeps my inner child alive. This was a great day to visit the parks because it was the first day of the Holiday season at the Disneyland Resort. This won’t be the longest update but it was great to notice some of the changes going on now for the festive celebration.
Alexander: Since we haven’t done a Disneyland Resort update in a while, we figured it was time! We’ve definitely been in the mood to soak up as much time as possible at some of our favorite SoCal parks!
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”
