I can’t believe this seriously happened! I’m not sure which park this is at, but a young boy challenged Mickey to a break dancing competition, and Mickey gladly accepted. Can’t….stop….watching!

The final installment of Disneyland’s Family Fun Weekends took place on the weekends of [dates]. Rather than being in the Festival Arena like the previous FFW’s, it was in New Orleans Square, just as Mardi Gras should be celebrated.
Characters came out and interacted with the park guests, NOS’s jazz band performed throughout the day, and Princess Tiana and her crew from “The Princess and the Frog” performed for the crowds.
Below are my photos from the weekend(s). I guess I was there at all the wrong times, since I didn’t really see the characters! I did see lots of Pluto, though, who spent lots of time with the kids. And a duck that thought it deserved to be part of the show.
This happened a while ago, but I don’t think I’ll forget it for a while. Unfortunately, the photo is a bit blurred, but then again, shiny and clear things are difficult to photograph.
Valentine’s Day was like almost any other day for my boyfriend and me — we went to Disneyland. What made this trip different from the rest was a certain cast member at the Story Book Land canal boats in Fantasyland. I wish I remembered her name. She was probably one of the sweetest cast members I have ever encountered.
She had asked if my boyfriend and I were celebrating the day by coming to Disneyland. We explained that we are annual passholders and that this is a regular visit for us. She was quick to reject our opinion that it was a normal trip for us.
She made her way to what I can only describe as a podium. She opened the little cabinet door and pulled something out of it. When she returned, she placed something in my hand. It was a “glass” slipper like Cinderella’s. (Okay, so it was plastic. Work with me here.)
I had never seen these before, even though I spend much of my free time there. After she placed it in my hand, she said, “Here, now this is different from all the other visits. Not all visits are the same — the people are always different.” She couldn’t have been more right.
Hopefully I see this cast member again sometime in the future, just so I could let her know that I still have the slipper.
Starting April 6, Disneyland annual passes will no longer have a photo of the passholder. It only took me a few years to get a good picture of myself on there, and now it’s changing.
New and existing passholders renewing their pass will have their new pass printed directly at the ticket booths, or will receive it in the mail if they ordered the pass online. The current process involved a temporary voucher printed from the ticket booth (or home) used to enter the park. Then the guest must go to Plaza Pavilion or the pass processing center inside California Adventure to have their photo taken and their plastic pass printed.
The new passes don’t quite eliminate the necessity for the passholder’s photo. A photo will still be needed for identification at the main entrance gates, therefore many people will still be sent to the annual pass processing centers to take their photo. There have also been passholders trying out a new system where they upload their own photo for their pass from home. Another option is to seek help from the Photo Pass cast members.
Why the change? Plaza Pavilion has plans to become a bakery, and inside California Adventure, the annual pass processing center will be closed for remodeling with the new Buena Vista Street re-theme project.
I got my Vinylmation in the mail from Dana (aka DragynAlly)! Ready to see what it is?
It’s Madam Mim from “The Sword in the Stone”!
My boyfriend also won a Vinylmation through Dana’s blog. He received Stromboli from “Pinocchio”.
Be sure to keep checking her blog for YOUR chance to win a Villains Vinylmation!
