I love when Disney decides to have special events in the park! When Pirates of the Caribbean turned 50, Disney decided it was time for a short anniversary celebration. I was completely surprised by this because the Food and Wine event is happening in California Adventure and the Electric Light Parade is still happening in Disneyland. Overlapping events happen sometimes but more often then not events happen one day apart. More surprising though is that the event was only from Thursday to Saturday!
I’ll be completely honest and open and say, I am not excited for the new Beauty and the Beast movie (I’m quite weary of it actually). I AM however super happy about the new Beauty and the Beast Merchandise, Food and return of the walk around Characters to the park. As well, even if you’re not excited to see the film, Disney has done an awesome job of releasing other merch from the original film to keep you interested and reminiscing about how much you loved the animated film. I was so excited to FINALLY get to try out the food in the park and get the experience I had longed for since watching the movie as a child!
AP Days is a wonderful time of year for those of us who regularly attend the park to get a special little shout out from the Disney powers that be. I know some people get disappointed that as a pass holder we pay quite a bit of money (and some of us might spend more than we should in the park too…*cough cough*me*cough cough*), some people feel like there should be more done for pass holders during AP Days. I can understand that and see where they are coming from, but I do really enjoy the Disney events and like the positive attitude of cast members and guests alike during AP Days.
Last year I was able to make it to the early February AP Days but missed the ones in the fall. I realize now that the experience was more confusing than I realized last year, I remember getting buttons but I think I didn’t take full advantage of the event last year like I did this year!
Since this is my favorite time of year I was so happy to get another chance to enjoy the Lunar New Year Celebration at Disneyland California Adventure! If you haven’t read my first post about this celebration, I would go back and read that first cause in this review I just add on to it.
While I love any day at Disneyland, I have to admit that Lunar New Year is one of my favorite times of the year!! I start counting down to it almost as soon as it’s over. Most years in the past have been somewhat simple affairs. The Mulan Lunar New Year Procession has always been the main focal point with one new food cart popping up. This year I was so excited to see the vast expansion of the Lunar New Year Celebration!!! Continue reading “Mouse Minute – Lunar New Year at DCA”
