The Holidays at Disneyland Resort somehow make going to the parks even more magical! In my opinion Disneyland was much more festive than Disneyland California Adventure so during my last trip to the parks most of my time was spent there. Prior to this outing I had found a Porg pumpkin shirt in the Little Girls department at Target and had to have it. I'm typically an X-Small so I figured the XL would fit perfectly and it did! If you wear the same size as myself or have a little girl in your life that loves Porgs you should totally snatch up this shirt. It's only $9.99! I also wore a choker necklace, jeans, comfortable sandals and opted for my Rose Gold Backpack by Lantern Pins.

While at Disneyland California Adventure I spotted the cutest Candy Corn themed Cotton Candy. Why is it that certain Holiday themed foods make you want to buy it even though it will taste the same as the regular version? Though I have read that some people do think it tastes different. This time, I decided to just take a photo! I also stumbled upon the new BB-8 pumpkin enamel pin. It's such a cute design and I believe it was around $12.99.

I had lunch at Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta. I do my best to eat at different places every time I go and this was one place I hadn't been to in a while. The Chicken Cesar Salad ($10.49) is extremely yummy and filling but not so filling that you don't have room for any Disney snacks afterwards.

I made sure to head over to the Games of Pixar Pier to play another round of La Luna Star Catcher and win a plush prize! You might remember that I played this same game during my last trip to Disneyland California Adventure. It's a simple game that costs $5 to play and EVERYONE wins a plushie! The first time I got a winking star plush and this time I got the smiling star plush. Which shall I get next?

One thing's for sure, Disneyland doesn't mess around when it comes to decorations. The entrance was exquisite as always featuring iconic Disney characters made of pumpkins and different plants. Minnie looked so cute! There are also pumpkins to be found all throughout the park. It's been rather warm still here in Southern California but the decor makes you believe it's a little cooler than it actually is.

The Pumpkin Spice Beignets and New Orleans Mint Julep at the Mint Julep Bar were SO GOOD. I had only purchased Beignets once before and couldn't recall the taste but what I do know is that the pumpkin flavored option is amazing! It's not too strong of a flavor and the softness is just heavenly. A pack of 3 Pumkpkin Spice Beignets is $5.49 while 6 cost $8.99.

I never realized how much there is to look at while in line for Pirates of the Caribbean, one of my favorite rides at the park, so I kind of went a little picture crazy. This was the second time I went on this attraction since they've updated it and I'm still not used to the fact that they removed Davy Jones. To me, it doesn't make sense as it was such a cool part of the ride that his character was featured in. What do you think of the change?

I don't know about you but I love Dole Whips so much more than I used to. The Tiki Juice Bar & Dole Whip is always a high traffic area. It's truly a yummy, refreshing and affordable snack at just under $5.00. Plus, you can just take pictures while you're in line to make the time go by quicker. LOOK AT THAT PORG FACE!

Lately almost every trip to the parks has involved stopping by Star Wars Launch Bay. Mostly because I love visiting Darth Vader and Kylo Ren but I also enjoy seeing what new collectibles they have. This time around I noticed many new figures on display including this beautiful Rey by Sideshow Collectibles.

My day ended in the most perfect way by spotting a Star Wars Resistance poster outside of Disneyland on my way to the Tram. This was the first time I had seen the show marketed anywhere and I was so happy to see it represented at the Happiest Place on Earth!

If you noticed a quality difference in the photos featured in this post they were taken with both my DSLR and phone. I like to be in the moment as much as possible at the parks. I hope you enjoyed seeing my adventures! Please comment below if you'd like to continue to see more of these posts or let me know on Twitter or Instagram.

  1. So fun! I love all your pictures!! I too enjoy taking a lot of pictures at Disneyland. :)
    I also think it's weird that they took Davey Jones out of the ride...that was one of the best parts!
    I love your Disneyland posts! I would absolutely want to see more! :)

    1. Aww, thank you Debbie! I'm glad you enjoy them. Davy Jones is one of my favorite characters from the POTC movies so I felt especially sad.
