Top Five Ways to Celebrate your Birthday at Disneyland Resort

From the Disney Parks Blog:

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

“A very merry un-birthday to you!” Guests from around the world celebrate birthdays (and un-birthdays) every day at the Disneyland Resort. Here are five magical ways to celebrate a birthday at Disneyland, the Happiest Place on Earth:

1. Start Early. Staying at one of the Hotels of the Disneyland Resort? Kick off the festivities from the moment you arrive at the hotel with in-room celebration goodies. Available gift baskets include a colorful birthday-themed pair of Disney Ear Hats to wear throughout your visit.

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

2. Snag Souvenirs. Take a magical memory of your birthday trip home with you. Complimentary “Happy Birthday” and other celebratory buttons are available at City Hall in Disneyland park or Guest Services in Disney California Adventure park.* In addition, autograph books are an excellent way to request and collect special birthday messages from your favorite characters. *Valid theme park admission is required.

3. Dine with Friends. For a magical dining experience, book a dining reservation with a few of your favorite friends. For breakfast, enjoy your morning meal in the company of Disney characters at Plaza Inn in Disneyland park, Storytellers Cafe at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa, or PCH Grill at Disney’s Paradise Pier Hotel. Goofy’s Kitchen at the Disneyland Hotel serves up playfully fun food and character encounters for breakfast and dinner.

4. Make a Wish. What’s a birthday without a cake? Order a custom birthday cake for delivery to select table service restaurants around the resort. Once you choose your favorite theme, place your order in advance and enjoy! Disneyland Resort Hotel guests can also have cakes delivered to their rooms.

5. Sing Along. Head over to Mad Tea Party in Disneyland park to take a spin on the tea cups and sing along to “A Very Merry Un-Birthday.” For continued musical fun, meet the Jambalaya Jazz Band in New Orleans Square and request a performance of “Happy Birthday” in addition to their catchy American classics.

Journey to “Nowhere in Particular” on Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride at Disneyland Park

From the Disney Parks Blog:

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

Journey via motorcar to “Nowhere in Particular” on Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride at Disneyland park. One of the original 1955 Opening Day “dark ride” attractions in Fantasyland, Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride is unique to Disneyland Resort.

The attraction takes guests on a wild speed race through the English countryside, wreaking havoc on the town along the way. We love a good joyride as much as the next toad, but the attraction moves quite quickly, racing past some of the finer details. So, let’s look at some of the easily missed hidden humor and subtle British influence on Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

Approaching the grand manor known as Toad Hall, the home of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, the English influence is unmistakable. A 19th century-inspired English weathervane tops one of the gables, and just above the entrance stands a stone statue of a dapper Mr. Toad himself, elegantly holding a cup of tea.

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

The motorcars themselves feature the names of various characters from the “Wind in the Willows” segment of the 1949 Disney feature film that inspired the attraction, “The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad.” Fittingly, the steering wheels are placed on the right side of the vehicle as they would be in England. Motorcar names include: Mr. Toad, MacBadger, Moley, Ratty, Weasel, Winky and Cyril.

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

As guests dash through the wharf scene, look out for the famous Tower Bridge, an iconic London landmark. Careful observers can even spot the tiny lights of vehicles moving across.

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

The next room, the village square, contains two important details. First, in an upstairs window, the distinctive silhouette of Sherlock Holmes is faintly visible, a subtle ode to the British detective. Second, in an alcove to the right of the window stands a statue of a woman representing justice, holding a sword in one hand and scales in the other. The statue humorously foreshadows Mr. Toad’s fate at the end of the attraction and the impending consequences of his joyride.

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

Just around the corner, as the statue of justice predicted, a judge wearing traditional English jurisprudence robes and a curly gray wig hands down the sentence.

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

We hope you enjoyed this inside look into the wacky world of Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride, and remember the motto emblazoned on Mr. Toad’s crest: Toadi Acceleratio Semper Absurda (A Speeding Toad is Always Absurd!)

POMMES FRITES AND MONTE CRISTO – CAFÉ ORLÉANS

Cafe Orleans is always a must for my trips to Disneyland Resort! This New Orleans Square table service eatery serves up a variety of French Quarter-inspired dishes, including the popular Pommes Frites and Monte Cristo. The Pommes Frites are a great way to start your meal off and come with traditional french fried potatoes tossed in Parmesan, garlic, and parsley served with Cajun Spice Rémoulade. And for your entrée, you just HAVE to try the Monte Cristo Sandwich – sliced ham, turkey, and Swiss fried in a light, fluffy batter, dusted with powdered sugar and served with berry purée. You can also try a Three-Cheese Monte Cristo (my personal fav) with Swiss, mozzarella, and double crème brie. And if you’re wanting to get your fix of a Mint Julep and Mickey Beignet, you can find them on the menu here as well!
