Haunted Mansion Disneyland Refurbishment

The Haunted Mansion Disneyland

A little fun fact… I LOVE The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland. It is my absolute favorite! I was so excited to find out that the ghosts have been busy, busy updating a few elements in and around the estate. Go check out what all they have been up to and a fun video from Disneyland. Oh, I cannot wait to be back! Can you? 

Aulani, Hawai’i Discount and Moana Returns

This fall guests can save up to 30% on select rooms for stays of 5 nights or more at Aulani. Plus, when guests book through May 23, 2021 their stay of 5 or more nights includes a $200 resort credit, or their stay of 4 consecutive nights includes a $150 resort credit. What?! Not bad, huh? Check out our friends to get a free quote and more information. 

And, and, and… it was just announced that Moana is sailing back to Hawai’i to visit Aulani once again! I know some kiddos that will be thrilled about that, for sure! 

The Health Full Trail presented by AdventHealth in Epcot

In addition to all of the unforgettable topiaries and garden-fresh cuisine the Flower and Garden Festival has to offer, the festival also boasts unique and immersive experiences for everyone of all ages, including The Health Full Trail presented by AdventHealth. With three distinct areas comprise the Health Full Trail – the Play Full Garden, Mind Full Retreat and Flavor Full Kitchen that you can check out and see right here before you go. We always love all of the fun and exciting ways to relax at Epcot during the Flower and Garden Festival. 

It’s a Girl in Animal Kingdom

Y’all, cuteness overload ahead! The next time you visit Animal Kingdom and Kilimanjaro Safaris make sure you look for mom and newborn who are healthy, happy and bonding. The new baby mandrill, Ivy, weighed in between 1-2 pounds and is ready for you to drop by and see her. Check her out in this sweet video. 

King Arthur Carrousel at Disneyland 

The loved since Disneyland park’s opening day in 1955, King Arthur Carrousel is the center of Fantasyland and a throwback to the days of knights jousting and ladies fair. While Disneyland gears up for a reopening, Disney Imagineering recently completed an extensive refurbishment of this attraction. When Disneyland opens on April 30, everyone will be delighted to discover a brightened version of the carrousel, sparkling with 14k gold leaf accents, vibrant details and bold colors. Check out the recent video! It looks SO beautiful! 

Disney Cruise Line Pop-Up Shop Open at Disney Springs

Now through early September, you can stop by Marketplace Co-Op to shop exclusive collections including the traditional Disney Cruise Line Wave and Sail Away Minnie Mouse collections, as well as a selection from Castaway Cay. After shopping you will be prepared to sail away with trendy and nautical-themed spirit jerseys, T-shirts, and even matching styles for adults and kids so the family can all match. I don’t know about you, but I am there!
