Cast Members will welcome you in the lobby. The parquet floors, gold trim and blue drapes bring a feeling of southern Louisiana charm. I suggest arriving early (about 30 minutes) for your reservation and requesting a table by the water. These tables will offer a perfect view of the beginning section of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction. You will hear the sounds of the swamp, like crickets and frogs chirping. You can see fireflies twinkle, the old fishing boats and cabins on the bayou and watch park guests float by.
Hollywood’s Golden Age spanned three decades and gave us classic films and movie stars. From the late 1920’s through the late 1950’s, people were mesmerized by the glitz and glamorous lifestyles of film makers and actors.
Now we can relive this magical era by dining at Carthay Circle Restaurant in Disney California Adventure Park. A meticulous reproduction of the original Carthay Circle Theater, which premiered Walt Disney’s Snow White in 1937, Carthay Circle Restaurant is located on Buena Vista Street.
20,000 – 30,000 or more! That is the average number of steps Disneyland guests take PER DAY! That is between 10 – 12 miles of walking. After that many steps, plus the hours of standing, my poor feet start squawking by about 3:00 in the afternoon.
Disneyland’s new MaxPass system is sure to help those aching feet and put a smile on everyone’s face with the ease and convenience of obtaining digital FastPasses without the hassle of walking all over the parks.
With the old FastPass system, guests needed to visit the FastPass distribution kiosk near an attraction, insert each guest’s park ticket and retrieve a paper FastPass with a return time. Often times, one family member was assigned the task of fetching FastPasses, thus splitting up your group for a period of time. Guests would then visit other attractions or shows until their given return time. This entailed a lot of extra walking between attractions and time spent waiting in FastPass kiosk lines.
With Disneyland’s MaxPass, the extra time, effort and energy to obtain a FastPass is no more! Guests can keep their party together, eliminate hundreds of extra steps and spend their time enjoying the magic of the parks.
MaxPass is an extra paid option that allows guests access to all of their digital PhotoPass images as well as the opportunity to make digital FastPass selections from the convenience of a smart phone. The current pricing for MaxPass is $10 per person per day.
As a park guest planning my own personal trip for a family of 5, I really questioned whether I should spend the extra $50 per day. This seemed like a lot of extra money that I really had not put in my original budget. After doing some research and reading other reviews, I decided to try the system for one day. I can tell you now, after having spent three days using MaxPass, it was well worth the extra money for each day!
Here is how the MaxPass system works.
Looking for a bit of Southern hospitality and fantastic BBQ fare? Take a closer look at River Belle Terrace in Disneyland’s Frontierland. Located next to Pirates of the Caribbean and across from Rivers of America in a quaint white building with tall columns, green shutters and intricate wrought-iron railings, you can’t miss this table service restaurant.
I have officially earned my wings! I ran the Tinker Bell Half Marathon at Disneyland! This is something I have been working towards for the last 2 years and I am over-the-moon with joy!
My Tinker Bell Half Marathon journey started several years ago when I would go on walks with my youngest daughter in her stroller. I loved to hear her squeals when I would run a bit and the wind blew her hair. “Faster, mommy! Again!” Sometimes it really took everything out of me to help my little one feel like she was flying, but I loved the exercise. My little one grew and graduated to being able to ride her bike on our walks. We never went far, but her little legs sure could pedal and that left me trotting along to keep up with her.
