Dapper Day & Bachelorette Trip Report (Day 2)

Time for day 2 of our very special Dapper Day Bachelorette Trip! One of the greatest bonuses of staying at the Grand Californian was getting early morning access on every day of our trip. We were visiting during a heat wave, so this definitely came in handy. Another day, another costume change. Here’s Hayley as a retro Rapunzel.

Our first stop was Fantasyland for Peter Pan and some teacups 🙂

We grabbed breakfast at Riverbelle Terrace (yay for the Steamboat!) and then went on the Haunted Mansion (which had just been given it’s Nightmare Before Christmas overlay) and headed back for some Astro Blasters action and Space Mountain.

Us ladies went off on our own, while the boys went to check out DCA. We did a bit of shopping.

We really wanted to make this a special trip for Angela, so we decided to have a ladies only luncheon at the Carthay Circle (one of our favorite restaurants). Here is our beautiful bride checking out the menu.

Dining at Carthay

The gentleman who helped us to our table made sure to point out a very interesting detail on the table’s surface. That Evil Queen sure can get around.

Our experience was lovely from start to finish. Thanks so much to our server Jenn for making our visit so memorable!

If you come to the parks during a Dapper Day weekend, you must check out the Expo at the Grand Californian. It was vintage heaven. Next time we are absolutely going to get our portraits drawn.

After a short rest, we found the boys and made our way back to the park

Even though we were still stuffed from Carthay, we had to get some fried chicken at the Plaza Inn. It’s a positive must!

We had to watch Fantasmic! and then some of us decided to attend “The Royal Swing Big Band Ball.” Look at this cutie pie who wanted to get in on the dancing action. Did you ever? What a doll!

We basically closed down Fantasyland- Pinocchio, Carousel, and our personal favorite Casey Jr. Look who got the caboose.

There’s our second day trip report- cabooses, Carthay, teacups and all.  Day 3 is right around the corner… we think we can, we think we can…

Postcard from the Park: Dream Big

Our inspiration for today’s “Postcard from the Park” comes from Walt Disney himself: “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”

Making Memories: Early Disneyland Trips

So, we’re just about to head out this early Friday morning to treat our mom to an (early) Mother’s Day trip to Disneyland:) We ran across a couple of these awesome shots of (early) Disney trips & just felt like sharing…

We are counting down to our next Disneyland trip (for more on how we surprised our mom with a special Mother’s Day gift check out this link)

 We still can’t believe we’ll be standing outside of Peter Pan in only 4 DAYS!
