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!

disneyland (2)

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!

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

Two Girls and a Mouse Tale

   by Elly Collins & Caroline Collins

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???

We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.

We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney.

Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
