EJ and I went to Disneyland/DCA (Disney California Adventure) a lot this year, for various reasons. And we snacked, a lot. If you’ve never been or haven’t been in a long time, you should try some of these out!
These are five of my favorite Disneyland/DCA Snacks:
The sole purpose of this trip was mainly for the Disneyland Half Marathon, but since we were going to be there for the the weekend, we got three-day passes again and explored some new territory we haven’t been before. Dianne was also able to hang out with us for a day =)
After running the Tinkerbell 10k this past January, and the Castaway Cay 5k later that same week, I felt like a half marathon was in my near future. I decided during the 10k that I was ready for the Disneyland Half Marathon, and maybe even the Dumbo Double Dare! But when registration opened up, I was a little late to get to a computer and the Dumbo was already sold out. So I settled with just the Half.
There’s no better way to see the Disney island of Castaway Cay then to run a 5k first thing in the morning!
I saw this run mentioned on different Disney forums while I was researching before the cruise and was super excited for it. We registered soon after getting on the ship, but they also allow people to register on the day of. Just make sure you have an ID and your room key. I think kids are allowed to register also. I forget the age limit, but there were kids around 10 years old that were running twice as fast as I was!
Have you ever walked around a Disney theme park and saw people with a necklace full of pins? They’re Disney pins traders!
Disney pins are sold at many Disney stores inside the parks and Downtown Disney stores as well. They are sold individually and in sets, but the fun part comes with the trading!
Best friend, Dianne, in Disneyland with her new lanyard and first pin: Anna and Elsa!

On our last park day, we just relaxed and did whatever else we didn’t get a chance to do the first two days. We got most of the stuff we really wanted to do while we were with Dianne.

On the second day of our Disneyland weekend, I made reservations at the Plaza Inn for breakfast. I’ve done character dining at Goofy’s Kitchen in the Disneyland Hotel, but this was my first time at the Plaza Inn. I love it! Goofy’s Kitchen has a larger variety of buffet, but Plaza Inn had more characters, is cheaper, and is located inside the park. I love both, but I thought Plaza Inn was more convenient for us that weekend. Continue reading
This year for my birthday, my husband surprised me with a trip to Disneyland! I haven’t been to there during summer in a while. We normally like to go in November when the weather is cooler and the holiday decorations are up. Kids are usually also in school at that time, so it’s not as crowded as it normally would be.
