At the Olaf meet & greet at California Adventure Park. He’s at Disney World’s Blizzard Beach in the summertime too!
Meeting Thor. You can only meet Thor in California because of Universal Studios restrictions in Florida. You’ll never see him at Disney World.
Disneyland Hotel Tip: We always stay at the Del Sol Inn hotel across the street and just walk in.
We went to Disneyland again last summer.
When we were there, it was was mostly cloudy (the “marine layer”) until noon and barely 70 degrees on most days! You needed a jacket at night and it even sprinkled several times – a rarity in June in southern California!
We went to see all the Disney stars on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame! So fun!
Don’t forget to visit the nearby Hollywood Walk of Fame…The Disney Company has a lot of stars on it….Walt, Snow White, Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Tinkerbell, Disneyland….it was fun!
Walt’s well-earned star!
Sleeping Beauty Castle with it’s new golden look. We love it!
We’ve written two books about our time working – and playing – as Disney Cast Members at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
Both are available on Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle: Two Girls and a Mouse Tale and Adventures in the Animal Kingdom.
