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.

Youtuber Shout-Out: Urban Exploring

One thing I doubt any of you guys really know about me quite yet is that I enjoy videos on urban exploring.  In case you’re not familiar with the term, this basically applies to people who explore abandoned buildings, often with the purposes of documenting what they see in order to preserve history before these places are inevitably torn down or collapse from age.  There’s something really fascinating about seeing old furniture and photographs left in previously inhabited places, admiring old architecture, or simply witnessing the natural decay of manmade structures.  I actually got into urban exploring when I looked up a video one day on the world’s creepiest animatronics.  From there, I found videos on creepy abandoned theme parks, which led to me watching videos on all sorts of abandoned places, from hospitals to schools to even nuclear power plants.  Below are my top two urban exploring channels!
