Back last month, we broke the news to you that one of Disneyland’s most popular attractions, Space Mountain, had closed as a precautionary measure due to OSHA citations. In case you missed it, you can read the whole article here.
Well, today, we have some good news to share with you. Disneyland’s Space Mountain has reopened! The popular attraction was able to reopen after the Walt Disney company decided not to appeal a workplace safety case.
According to the Orange County Register, Space Mountain reopened Friday evening (May 3, 2013). Disneyland’s Space Mountain was closed in April after state officials deemed that safety rules were violated after a contractor fell and suffered broken bones while cleaning the attraction’s slanted roof.
We at Chip and Co are your go to Walt Disney World Planning Tips, but we’re more than just Walt Disney World. We are Disneyland, Disney Aulani, and beyond. Stop your searching the web and stick with us for all your Disney Needs. Here and now we’re giving you our Disneyland Pre-Planning Tips.
You may recall we went over some checklist items for a Disneyland Vacation earlier this year. Now we need to choose your Disneyland Airport.
What Airports are there: Disneyland is serviced by many airports. The main three are Long Beach (LGB), Santa Ana (SNA) and Los Angeles (LAX), CA. My personal favorite is Long Beach. It’s a great little airport that is easy to get in and out of. Plus the old school stair ramp exit off your plane is super cool. You could also fly into Burbank, Ontario or even San Diego if you wish.
We all try to give our mom’s all the love and appreciation we can every day of the year. But on that one special day every year, we go the extra mile and truly show mom how much she means to us. This year that day is May 12th. What better way to celebrate your mother then to “Give Mom A Day At Disneyland”?
Mom should never have to cook on her day either, So during your Mother’s Day visit, give your mom the Disney Princess treatment and take her to one of these special events for a meal to remember:
Disneyland Hotel Grand Ballroom: This is an “all-you-care-to-eat feast that begins at 10am and lasts until 3pm. Princess Mom will be visited by Cinderella and will enjoy live musical entertainment. This is the over the top Royal Buffet. Start mom with a glass of bubbly and a buffet that is extensive. Included in the buffet are salads, artisan cheese, seafood, meats, divine desserts – including housemade pies. For the little ones in the group, they get their own buffet which includes salads, fresh fruit, chicken, pizza, mac ‘n’ cheese and “kid-approved” desserts. (Adults $71.99 + Tax/Gratuity Kids ages 3-9 $20.99)
Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa Storyteller’s Cafe: Mother’s Day Bruch Buffet with extra goodies for Princess Mom. The buffet includes season berries, made-to-order omelets, brioche French toast and roasted salmon. ($31.99)
The man who has allegedly been selling fraudulent tickets in a Disneyland ticket scam has turned himself in to authorities.
Police reported that a man who called himself “Chris Ruiz” met a woman in a Food 4 Less parking lot in Wilmington to sell four Disneyland park-hopper tickets at $60 each. These tickets normally sell for upwards of $125 a piece. The woman had purchased these tickets from a stranger on Craigslist.
The man, whose real name is Edward Anthony Contes, turned himself in to authorities at the Los Angeles Police Department’s Harbor Division station in San Pedro, California. He was being held on charges of petty theft, but faces felony charges because he had at least three or more prior convictions and served jail time.
I decided I had to write some about what I want to do and not just what I have done… On a trip in the future I fully intend to spend a few nights in EVERY Disneyland Hotel Signature Suite! Have you had a chance to experience one? Let us know! Or is it on your bucket list too?
What are the Signature Suites exactly? Think of the High Roller suites in Las Vegas and you’re on the way to understanding. I may be a dreamer but I know I’ll stay in each one of the themed suites…
These rooms are located on the 11th Floor of the Adventure Tower at Disneyland Hotel. There are a total of 5 themed Signature Suites. The Mickey Mouse Penthouse, Big Thunder Suite, Pirates of the Caribbean Suite, Fairy Tale Suite, and Adventureland Suite.
