Is This Blog Post Actually Stretching?

Happy Halloween, fellow mortals!  I have been simply dying to show you my Ratchet and Clank stretching portraits, and today is finally the day to discover just how those pictured in my earlier post met their ghastly ends…. Continue reading Is This Blog Post Actually Stretching?

Recreating the Plaza Inn’s Chicken and Taters

The Plaza Inn seems to be a bit of an obsession for me this year.  And since I enjoy recreating foods from Disneyland (Tigger Tails, Blue Bayou gumbo, and the Pixar Fest cake), I thought it was time I tried my hand at making the Plaza Inn’s famous fried chicken and ridiculously yummy mashed potatoes. Continue reading Recreating the Plaza Inn’s Chicken and Taters

Recreating the Pixar Fest Cake…Mostly

As you may remember, during our most recent trip to Disneyland, a special several-month-long event called Pixar Fest was taking place.  The festivities came in the form of special merchandise, food, fireworks, and parades, and one of the things I was the most excited about was a three-layer cake (the colors being yellow, blue, and red) that could be found at the Plaza Inn.

The Duck’s Disneyland Ride Tour 2018 Part 3

The final ride-ranking post is here, where we discuss the best of the best.  Even if one of these supposedly best rides caused no shortage of terror in the Duck and Mother Duck.  And in case you’re curious about part 2, it can be found here. Continue reading The Duck’s Disneyland Ride Tour 2018 Part 3

The Duck’s Disneyland Ride Tour 2018 Part 2

We have arrived at part 2 of the Duck’s Disneyland ride-ranking (part 1 can be found here).  This part of the list ranges from the peaceful to the frightening! Continue reading The Duck’s Disneyland Ride Tour 2018 Part 2

The Duck’s Disneyland Ride Tour 2018 Part 1

The best part of Disneyland, as we all know, is the rides.  And one thing I love about the rides at Disneyland is the fact that they have something for everyone, especially people like myself who don’t enjoy rides that are fast or otherwise scary.  (Most theme parks would have literally nothing for me to do.  Except eat, of course.)  I would like to spend the next couple of posts reviewing and ranking the various attractions Mother Duck and I got to ride, including those we rode last year but didn’t check out on our newest visit (signified by italics).

Keep in mind that I’m trying to rank these rides not solely based on personal opinion.  For example, I can objectively say that Splash Mountain is a good ride deserving of its popularity, even if I, for one, would never ride it again due to that awful 52-foot drop at the end.  Of course, my own opinions will, inevitably, affect my rankings, but I wanted to keep things as fair as possible.  If you’re curious about last year’s posts, here are the links to part 1 and part 2.

The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2018

It is now time we talked about the desserts at Disneyland, including some special limited edition stuff they had in celebration of Pixar Fest!  One nice thing about the snacks at Disneyland is that they often come in large servings, meaning you can save some money by sharing (Mother Duck and I shared the curros and grey stuff twist, sometimes with food to spare).  I will be ranking all of the treats we’ve had, including those from last year’s visit, which will be in italics.  Oh, and if you want to read last year’s dessert post, you can find it here.

The Duck’s Disneyland Food Tour 2018

Before we cover rides, I’d like to rank all of the food we had at Disneyland, including a few things we tried last year (in italics).  I’m feeling rather hungry, so let’s get right to it.  If you’d like to read last year’s food post, you can find it here.

Disneyland 2018: Day 2 – Big Trouble on Big Thunder…Kind Of

Ah, you’re back.  Well, you’re just in time to read about part 2 of our Disneyland trip, with a little bit of bonus stuff thrown in at the end.  (If you missed part 1, you can find it here.)  The following day, we arrived before the park opened.  Our first goal was to head straight for Peter Pan before it got crowded, but what happened next was…fate, perhaps?  The problem with trying to ride Peter Pan first thing in the morning is the fact that everyone tries to do this, so as soon as the way forward was opened, people started running for Fantasyland as fast as they could.  We followed at a slower pace, discovering soon enough that our doubts were well-founded when we saw that the Peter Pan queue was already packed.  Disappointed, we decided to head for our favorite rides (hint: they’re both in New Orleans Square) while the lines were still short.
