Mickey’s Halloween Party at the Disneyland Resort and Giveaway!



Mickey's Halloween Party

I love visiting the Disneyland Resort during Halloween Time. The Disneyland Resort is decked in beautiful decorations and hosts the one event, our family looks forward to every year, Mickey’s Halloween Party at Disneyland Park. It has become an annual tradition and one that the kids start looking forward to it very early in the year.

Mickey’s Halloween Party is a special after hours costume party (the one and only time that adults are allowed to wear costumes at the park) that features super fun treat stations that dish both candy and healthy treats, Halloween Screams firework spectacular, music and dance stations at nearly every turn and the ability to enjoy the park after hours in an exclusive setting.

Another great perk of Mickey’s Halloween Party is the opportunity to enter Disneyland three hours before the party starts. You can head over up to 3 hours early and enjoy all that Disneyland has to offer before the party even begins.

The Disneyland Resort is decorated for Halloween and is the perfect setting for THE Halloween Party of the year. There are an incredible number of Jack-o-lanterns on Main Street and other fall decorations throughout the park.  Some of attractions such as the Haunted Mansion and Space Mountain are made over for Halloween Time and turn into The Haunted Mansion Holiday and Space Mountain Ghost Galaxy. They are not to be missed!

Mickey’s Halloween Party takes place on Monday October 15th, 29th,  Tuesday October 2nd, 9th, 23rd, Friday October 5th, 12th, 19th and 26th. There will also be a Mickey’s Halloween Party on Halloween Night.

You can save on admission by purchasing ahead of time and on select nights, annual passholders, receive a discounted price. Make sure to purchase your tickets ahead of time because nights sell out quickly. You can also purchase tickets at the door, if the night is not sold out, which is rare.

I promise that it will be a night, you won’t soon forget! We have made some wonderful memories. Make sure to take your camera, because there will be plenty of opportunities for pictures.

Beating the Heat: Root Beer Floats #HansensSoCal


Hansen's Root Beer and Ice Cream = The Yummiest Root Beer Float!

It has been one of the warmest summers on record, and my electric bills definitely attest to it. There is nothing that beats the heat quite like an ice cold drink. This weekend, we beat the heat and made a fun family evening, by making root beer floats.

I chilled the glasses the night before, added 2 good sized scoops of ice cream, Hansen’s Root Beer and voila, one of the best tasting Root Beer Floats, I have ever had.  I think the secret to a good tasting float, is not so much in the ice cream, but in the root beer that is used. Hansen’s Root Beer is the absolute best! It is delicious, creamy and with pure can sugar. It’s all natural ingredients, none of the yucky corn syrup stuff is used in their great tasting soda. I think the other key to great tasting floats, is making sure to chill your glasses ahead of time. It really makes all the difference in the world.

It’s giveaway time!

I’m excited to be able to giveaway a Hansen’s Natural Soda Prize Package. I’m telling you, their sodas are THE best! Just head over to Hansens, browse their soda flavors and let me know what flavor is your favorite! That’s it! Nothing like opening your door and discovering a package with your favorite Hansen’s Natural Soda.
