This Tuesday’s terrific tip comes to Babes in Disneyland readers from John Addis, senior show director at the Disneyland Resort. In the video below, you will not only get a FANTASTIC tip about an often overlooked place to watch the Disneyland fireworks, but you will also hear from Eden Espinoza and her feelings about being part of Disneyland history and singing the song for the fireworks presentation.
Here in southern California, it’s hard to believe that the dog days of summer are almost here when you look outside and see dreary June gloom all around us. Nonetheless, before you know it we’ll soon be dealing with sweltering hot days and blackout days with the So Cal annual passes. Anticipating my seven-week hiatus away from the Happiest Place on Earth, I am trying to pack in as much time as possible in Disneyland now through June 26.
Have you ever walked by the Candy Palace and felt sucked in by the delicious aroma of the candy inside? The smell is almost intoxicating. The truth of the matter is that the sweet vanilla smell you get a whiff of is not the smell of the candy from inside at all. If you look just below the candy makers’ windows you will see what looks like small green decorations worked into the architecture. Those little green circles are actually vents that pump out a sweet vanilla scent (think one of those Glade Plug-ins on steroids). Genius, right?!
As a child and even a teenager, I had one very favorite Disney cartoon. It was the short with the bears picking up the trash in Brownstone Park. The had a hilarious dance and song that always made me grin. I’ve been searching for it for years…a lot of years. I knew it still existed because when I was talking to a friend about it ten years ago, a couple of men poked their heads into the conversation to say that they worked for Disney and had helped to remaster the short.
