We are off to Aulani today and I can’t wait!!! I’ve never been to Disney’s Aulani Resort let alone Hawaii so I am beyond excited to see what the most tropical paradise is all about. While I put together a guide of what I am packing for Hawaii to wear, I had to of course put together specifically a guide for just Disney merch perfect for Aulani! Naturally Aulani has a ton of exclusive merch at the resort but they also have some on ShopDisney.com, PLUS I have been stocking up on plenty of Lilo & Stitch goodies since they are from Hawaii! Can’t wait to share more about Aulani once I return!
My birthday is just a few weeks away and we are heading to Disney’s Aulani Resort in Hawaii but before we head to Hawaii we are doing a Disneyland day to celebrate my birthday a bit early! ICYMI – Disney is one of the best places to celebrate your birthday. Besides it being one of the happiest places on earth, they help make your birthday so special with fun experiences special for the birthday guy or gal!
1. Get Your Birthday Pin
At Disneyland and Disney World you can head over to guest services at the Disney Parks and with valid admission get a special birthday pin! I have even been able to get one with a fun postcard at Character Dining experiences at Disneyland and Disney World.
2. Have A Character Dining Experience
Every year I love making Disney part of my birthday celebration + one of the best ways to have my birthday dinner is with my favorite characters at one of Disney’s Character Dining Experiences! One of my favorite’s is Chef Mickey’s at The Contemporary Resort at Disney World and if you tell them (as I am guessing is the case with various character dining experiences) that it is your birthday they will sing you happy birthday with the characters + give you a birthday Mickey Mouse cupcake! Super Fun!
3. Snag Some Birthday Merchandise
The best way to celebrate your birthday in style at Disney is with fun birthday themed Disney merch! From plush toys to special pins to birthday ears, Disney does birthday swag better than anyone I know and I love stocking up on their birthday selects before heading to the parks.
ICYMI National Polka Dot day is just a few days away and I happen to LOVE Polka Dots because they are the go to print for my fav gal pal, MINNIE MOUSE! Anytime I have the opportunity to ‘Rock The Dots’ you know I’m IN…like all in, so it only makes sense I celebrate my favorite stylish print with a roundup of the best polka dot picks that are sure to wow at the parks + everywhere else!
From polka dot shoes to dresses to swimsuits to bags, accessories + more, I got you covered so you can rock the polka dots in style anywhere you go. ♥
Ya’ll I am SO excited because the best time of the year at Disney is just days away…Holiday Time! November 8th kicks off the Holiday Season at Disneyland + California Adventure! From tasty new treats, to festive decor to redesigned experiences to amazing holiday merch, Disney for the holidays is my FAVORITE place to be! Since I get right in the holiday spirit immediately after Halloween ends, I figured I’d get a jump start on my holiday Disney outfits like this one I shot at the park last week + round up some of the exciting happenings arriving soon!
If you are like me you LOVE a good Disney parade, especially a Christmas themed one! The parade is about 40 minutes long + runs along Main Street and the Castle every night. With prancing reindeer, marching toy soldiers, dancing gingerbread cookies and more, it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas at Disneyland Park!
Believe…In Holiday Magic Fireworks Spectacular
My favorite part of every evening at Disneyland is a great fireworks display + that means I am beyond excited to see the Holiday fireworks display above Sleeping Beauty’s Castle which is decorated for the winter wonder season as well! Check for exact showtimes on the Disneyland app to make the most of your trip!
It’s A Small World Holiday Lighting
A magical moment I always love to watch is when ‘It’s a Small World’ lights up at night decorated with Holiday accents + twinkling lights!
Haunted Mansion Holiday
Jack Skelington from Nightmare Before Christmas takes over the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland to give it a Nightmare Before Christmas makeover with amazing decor + interactive elements!
Tasty Treats on Main Street
No trip to Disneyland is complete without some yummy treats on Main Street USA. Enjoy hot cocoa, holiday themed desserts, savory dishes + so much more!
Both parks have the best Disney Holiday gear from exclusive holiday Minnie Ears, to custom holiday ornaments, decor, apparel + more, you can step into a winter wonderland of Disney merchandise and fill up your stockings with all of the best goodies!
I always love California Adventure for their yummy dishes inspired by cultures all around the world and holiday time that experience is amplified thanks to the tasty offerings during Festival Feasting! From pastries to cuisine there is a little something for everyone!
Festival Of Holidays
California Adventure brings world cultures to live through their multi-cultural festival celebration which has a little something for everyone. This fun celebration also includes Disney Viva Navidad filled with delicious meals, spectacular performances and so much more!
Buena Vista Street Holiday Tree Lighting
One of my favorite parts of California Adventure during the Holidays is the gorgeous Christmas Tree in Hollywood Land on Buena Vista Street. It’s a hot spot for photos, character sightings + embracing the Holiday season in the most magical way.
World Of Color – Season Of Light
I always love the World Of Color show which takes place every night at California Adventure but I love their spin on it for the holiday season even more! It’s festive, fun + a great show for the whole family to experience.
