I Dream of Cake…and Turkey

Ever since our most recent trip to Disneyland, I have been dreaming about the Pixar Fest cake.  It’s a very odd thing, but I seem to dream about food a lot.  I have had many dreams about visiting bakeries, sometimes the same establishment over the course of many years.  I guess I’m obsessed with treats, with the newest object of my fixation being that three-layer beauty exclusive to Pixar Fest.  As you may recall, I was unable to try this cake during our recent visit to Disneyland, as the Plaza Inn was only serving chocolate cake when we stopped by for dinner (only chocolate cake; what do you mean, Duck?).  And even though we eventually decided to make the cake ourselves, it didn’t stop me from dreaming about it, nevertheless.

Disneyland 2018: Day 1 – From Splash Mountain to Fantasmic

I don’t think I can overestimate my love for Disneyland.  You may recall that last year marked my first trip to the park in a decade (minus a few months), and this year, Mother Duck and I were fortunate enough to visit again.  While we have decided that Disneyland will likely not become a yearly tradition due to the fact that visiting a single place too often has the negative consequence of taking some of the fun out of it, we did have an amazing time nonetheless and look forward to a return someday in the future, whenever we decide enough time has passed.  Let us begin by discussing the first day of our trip, shall we?
