Disney’s Silly Bandz: Cars

After buying the Nightmare Before Christmas bands, my boyfriend spotted Cars ones inside the Star Trader shop in Tomorrowland (Disneyland).

The shapes are Lightning McQueen, Snot Rod, Wingo, D.J. and Boost.Yes, we put them all out on top of a Disneyland trash can to see them and take photos. Don't judge us. … [Read more...]

About 3,000 lucky Programs got to attend Disney Park Blog's ElecTRONica meet-up in California Adventure on Thursday, October 28.

It Makes Perfect Sense to go to College Near Disneyland

Chapman University is close to Disneyland. Very close. So is Cal State Fullerton. I won't hide it -- we're lucky. (And that photo above is me in front of our university sign. That building in the background is Memorial Hall. Those doors are the same ones Denzel Washington walked through in "Crimson Tide". And right in front of that building is Memorial lawn. If you've seen the movie "Accepted", that's where the "Ask me about my wiener" part takes place. Yeah. Chapman's in movies. It's awesome. … [Read more...]

Disneyland Treats: Taffy

My boyfriend and I have a habit of getting a little bit of a sweet tooth when we visit Disneyland. We love perusing through the candy shop on Main Street, peering into the glass cases to gaze at the sugary confections.Sometimes we decide that it's time we cave in to the craving and purchase something for us to snack on. Our first choice is always the taffy.With an assortment of flavors (banana is our favorite),  the taffy is not only delicious, but affordable. A small single scoop bag … [Read more...]
