Attractions to skip at Disney’s Animal Kingdom – by kids (and adults)

I thought it would be interesting to do a quick survey of which attractions didn’t hit the spot for our group of travellers at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.  Not everyone has the luxury of the time we had at the parks, so it might be useful for those on short time frames to see which things they … Continue reading

Grizzly Peak Airfield at Disney California Adventure Park

Earlier this year Disney California Adventure Park re-imagined the old Condor Flats area into the new Grizzly Peak Airfield.  I was looking back through my old photos of Disneyland to show you before and after and couldn’t find any of this area.  It used to be very grey and concrete with very few photographically interesting areas. … Continue reading

The return of the Hatbox Ghost

When Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion attraction first opened in 1969, one of the effects was the Hatbox Ghost.  There were apparently some difficulties with the way the effect looked to the public, and within a short period of time, he was removed from the ride. However he remained in the Disney fandom as a beloved, favourite character. … Continue reading

Movies to see before you visit Disneyland

I’m often asked for Disneyland trip planning help.  One of the key things I recommend, especially when travelling with children, is in the months leading up to your trip, watch some of those Disney movies you haven’t seen. At Disneyland many of the attractions are based around story and theme.  This usually comes directly from a movie.  So here is my … Continue reading

Menus at Hong Kong Disneyland

The food we tried at Hong Kong Disneyland was by far the best I’ve had in any theme park, if you like Asian food that is – Indian, Thai, Chinese, Indonesian, Japanese, its all represented.  Western food was also available so if you want a burger and fries, you can get that too but you … Continue reading

It didn’t disappoint!  The area is made up … Continue reading
