Julie Andrews is one of my favorites of all time! Mary Poppins is my second favorite role of hers and I wanted to honor her this season along with the release of the sequel, starring Emily Blunt.
I hope you enjoy this photo shoot of Mary Poppins. A classic!
Makeup, hair by me. All photos by Erica, edit by me.
Had a great time at the character breakfast. I recommend this experience for any family. You have many delicious food choices.
Upon entry, Chef Goofy is there to greet you. I just love his Chef outfit!
The food is delicious! I could not resist the Mickey Mouse waffles.
And of course the Downtown Disney District is home to awesome restaurants and shops where you buy Disney merch!
You MUST try the character breakfast at Goofy's Kitchen. It's one of many offered throughout the Disney Resort, but it's the original!
Tomorrowland is one of my favorite lands. It's home of Space Mountain, my absolute favorite ride EVER! There's Autopia, Nemo's Subs, Monorail and Star Tours. I miss the Peoplemover and the Skyway, both are my dad's favorite vintage Disney rides.
This underground stage has been around since the 60s. Live bands have played here for decades. When I was younger, it was the Coca Cola stage.
Toy Story made Pizza Planet a household name! Honestly, I've never eaten here.
Space Mountain overlay Ghost Galaxy is my FAVORITE!
Definitely the Happiest Place on Earth!
Fantasyland, dubbed “The Happiest Kingdom of Them All,” opened as one of five original lands at Disneyland Park on July 17, 1955. The fairytale village brings to life the wonder and magic of Disney’s animated stories and characters.
Meeting the Princesses was FUN! Tink was terrific and she put so much pixie dust on my book!!!
With the wave of a wand, Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique offers magical makeovers for royalty-in-training ages 3 to 12. Watch as your young majesty or knight takes a seat in a lavish salon throne and enjoys pampering perfection, courtesy of their very own Fairy Godmother-in-training or Coachman.

Best of all, you’ll get a front-row seat as your belle prepares for the ball—or your knight prepares to defend the castle. Share their joy as they get a truly resplendent royal treatment!

You can see my review for Dumbo sipper cup and Casey Jr. Train popcorn bucket.
Here at the top of Snow White's Scary Adventures is the evil Queen Grimhilde looking out the castle window.
The Red Rose Taverne offers the more traditional fare of burgers, salads and the grey stuff.
Alice in Wonderland ride. Disneyland Resort, Anaheim is the only park that has this original ride.
Flynn Rider kept going on and on about how Rapunzel's hair grew 18" in one year!
The Matterhorn Bobsleds was the first tubular steel roller coaster in the world when it opened in 1959 and can be found only in Disneyland.

Main Street is without a doubt my FAVORITE place inside the park. Its magical, charming and filled with amazing things to see and do. Here it is AT NIGHT!
Mickey was out meeting people pre parade show.
This was my first time inside the Jolly Holiday Bakery. I had a delicious Cruella De Vil Brownie.
Main Street USA is designed in the Victorian era. Not only are the exterior buildings, architecture and layout Victorian, but the window displays are too! Equally gorgeous!
Once inside the shops, look up. There are detailed vignettes.
More vignettes, this time storybook characters.
There are so many photos it is impossible to share them here on the blog. I have compiled a video and I hope you will enjoy watching the Magic of Main Street USA.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
