The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2019

In my last post, I ranked the foods we ate at Disneyland, and this time, we get to the good stuff, the desserts.  I’m going to rank some things we had in previous years (in italics), as well, but if you want to read my 2017 post and 2018 post, here they be.  Now, without further ado… Continue reading The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2019

The Duck’s Disneyland Food Tour 2019

As I’ve done for the last two years, I wanted to rank every food and dessert (in the next post) that we ate at Disneyland, with the ones that we didn’t actually have this time being in italics.  If you’re interested in reading my food rankings from previous years, you can find 2017 here and 2018 here.  So let’s waste no time!

Disneyland 2019 Part 3: Haunted Mansion Foods and Unexpected Scoldings

At last, we have arrived at the second and final day at Disneyland.  I’d like to start by saying that, with the exception of about 1-2 hours of sleep after the Haunted Mansion Anniversary, we ended up staying awake for around 44 hours straight over the course of our trip.  How we managed to stem the tide of sleepiness, I have no idea.  But we did, so let’s get on with the post.

Disneyland 2019 Part 2: Haunted Mansion 50th Anniversary

Mother Duck and I arrived back outside Disneyland at 11:30 PM on August 8, a mere half hour before the Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary.  The space between Disneyland and DCA was practically packed with row after row of people, many in attire ranging from Haunted Mansion t-shirts to full costumes and face paint and all of them wearing their purple lanyards signifying them as attendees of the event to come.  Waiting outside the park many hours after sundown as a half-moon shone down on us, while a variety of Disney songs played over the speakers, including the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song (both the movie and the ride version) and the theme from the Electrical Parade, was a truly surreal experience indeed.

A Warning About the Disneyland Resort Express

Today’s blog post is a serious one.  Recently, mom and I had a very scary experience that I wanted to recount, in part because I don’t want someone else making the same mistake as us.  The situation I’m about to tell you about involves the Disneyland Resort Express.  If you are planning on visiting Disneyland, or anywhere that requires transportation using people you do not know, please read on.

Disneyland 2019 Part 1: Before the Event

In a recent post, I mentioned that there was something special I wanted to share with you all concerning the Haunted Mansion’s 50th anniversary.  Well, Mother Duck and I recently took a trip to Disneyland!  We originally had no intention of going this year, but once I heard they were having a special event planned celebrating the Haunted Mansion turning half a century old, I couldn’t resist!  We had a two-day trip, and I’m going to be talking about both of our days in a 3-part post, after which I’ll discuss food and rides, just as I did last year and the year before that!

The Duck’s Disneyland Dessert Tour 2017

While the best part of Disneyland is undeniably the rides, to be sure (and the scenery and the shows!), a trip to this fair kingdom of happiness would not be complete without some delicious morsels (the calories of which have the added benefit of being burned away thanks to the great distances we walked over the course of those two delightful days).  I’ve already discussed the meals we had during our time at Disneyland, but let’s not forget the most important part, the desserts, which shall be listed below for your reading enjoyment, from least best to most best!

The Duck’s Disneyland Food Tour 2017

Three months before my mom and I spent a delightful weekend at Disneyland, our trip was still but a distant dream.  All we could do was wait and prepare.  Our preparations included one thing we take very seriously, food.  Considering Disneyland is not a place we can go every day, it is rather important that we don’t miss out on any scrumptious morsel.  By the end of the very busy week during which we bought our tickets (both to Disneyland itself and the Disneyland Resort Express bus), set up our flights, and booked a hotel room, we were already pretty familiar with the meals and treats most people ranked pretty high on their lists, in addition to having hunted these places down on the Disneyland app to get an idea of where they could be found.  Maybe this kills all notions of spontaneity, but with food, you can never be too careful.  Below the Duck shall rank the food we tried at Disneyland, from least best to most best!  For this post, let’s start with what many people like to call “real food”.

The Duck Returns…from a Trip Somewhere

For the last three months or so, I have been keeping a secret.  Before you begin jumping to conclusions, no, I am not secretly a goose.  I was actually planning a trip with my mom to Disneyland.  The secret was not from her.  She knew all about it.  The secret was just from everyone else because I wanted it to be a surprise.  (Yes, I did recently enter a sweepstakes, the prize to which would have been a free trip to Disneyland.  Clearly such a thing was not necessary when I already had a trip planned to that very place.  Nevertheless, who can pass up the chance to win a free trip to the “happiest place on Earth”?  And in case you were wondering, no, I didn’t win.)

Youtuber Shout-Out: Exploring America

Hey, every-people, it’s time for another Youtuber Shout-Out!  I have already covered gaming channels and urban exploring channels, so that’s pretty cool.  But, as fun as abandoned buildings are, sometimes it’s kind of nice to check out places that are still inhabited.  In fact, there are cool things all over the United States that are interesting to see, like roadside attractions, museums, and let’s not forget…Disneyland and Disneyworld!  Problem is, I hate travelling, so my chosen solution is to simply sit back and watch other people do all the work for me.  Below are my top three channels that will allow you to see all that the United States (including the famous Route 66) has to offer without ever having to leave home.
