Disney Dreams for 2013

The sun is out!   Two days of it and the kids are already complaining that they are too hot.  My lot better toughen up soon, because the countdown is on.  In two weeks we are jetting down to Disneyland to check out all the incredible things that are happening there.

It is going to be a packed few days.   Like our Victoria Day long weekend the week before, the Memorial Day weekend is the big kick off for all things summer and vacation and fun down in the US of A.

We haven’t been back to Disneyland since Caitlyn was the same age that Tara is now.

princesscaityThe very first day there back in 2008, Caity went and met many of her favourite princesses and then had her hair and make up done too.   She was in heaven.     She kept that hair do almost the entire time we were there.   For a girl who barely lets me brush her hair….this was and still is HUGE.  At age 8 she perhaps feels that she is too cool for the princess scene now, but I am sure she will be curious to see what Tara makes of it all now at the new Fantasy Faire.

Part of the newly expanded and revamped Fantasy Faire is the Fantasy Theatre.  Starting May 25th, this will be the home to  “Mickey and the Magical Map.”  “Mickey and the Magical Map” presents Mickey in his timeless role as the sorcerer’s apprentice. Wise sorcerer Yen Sid directs his Mapmakers, a singing-dancing ensemble cast that paints a wondrous map – capable of taking dreamers to any place imaginable and so large it spans the entire stage of the outdoor Fantasyland Theatre.

I am thrilled to hear about this and more live shows at Disneyland.  Disney is always about more than rides. It should be about magic and entertainment of all kinds.

Bringing the magic to life is what Disney does best.  I will never forget Adam meeting the Jedi and facing down Darth Vader and Darth Maul.   He was so serious about his job.  He took it all in.

Young JediHe will certainly get the chance to take it all in and see if he can last thanks to this.  Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park  will stay open from 6 a.m., May 24 to 6 a.m., May 25, 2013, to mark the beginning of a summer of fun inspired by the upcoming Disney•Pixar comedy adventure Monsters University.    Who can’t wait for THAT movie to come out! :)

The Crunchy crew are thrilled to have the opportunity to share with you all the fun that is happening this summer season at Disneyland.  I cannot wait to share the experiences with you.    It will be a very different trip for us with older kids this time around, but will certainly enjoy seeing it through Tara’s eyes…..our newb at all things Disneyland.
