2019 Minnie's Moonlit Madness - An After Hours Scavenger Hunt around Disneyland #minnies2019

February means that Minnie's Moonlit Madness is back at the Disneyland Resort! This after-hours scavenger hunt takes teams all through Disney California Adventure Park on a 2 hour quest for 1st place and eternal bragging rights.

A rainy Thursday afternoon at Disneyland, leading up to a big event

It's a rainy day at Disneyland, but there's a very special event going on here tonight. I'll brave a little rain for that.
I got off work early enough to beat the Los Angeles traffic and made it to Disneyland in good time. Right after I parked the car, the skies opened up and it started pouring. Good thing I brought an umbrella. The entrances to stores and restaurants were crowded with people who must have assumed So Cal is always warm and sunny.

Valentine Oreos and Ian's School Valentines

Oreo keeps cranking them out. We keep buying them and tasting them.
As a special release this Valentine's day, Oreo has released a new flavor. Sweet and Tangy Oreos don't have a specified flavor. It's a little like the Mystery Oreo where the flavor tastes familiar but you can't quite put your finger on what it tastes like.

Disneyland's Lunar New Year - Year of the Pig

After a fun morning in Disneyland hunting for Valentines and celebrating Valentine's Day, it was time to come over to DCA to celebrate Lunar New Year and the Year of the Pig.

Minnie's Valentine's Day Surprise Hunt at Disneyland

On a rainy Sunday, the Flowers headed to Disneyland to celebrate a couple things. First up, the girls are celebrating Valentines day with their princess hats with lots of hearts. Last weekend we were supposed to be here at Disneyland celebrating Lunar New Year and the Year of the Pig, but got rained out. Instead the boys are celebrating the year of the pig with pig hats this week. I'm wearing a Piglet hat from Tokyo Disneyland and Ian is wearing a Hamm hat also from Tokyo.
The photo pass cast member had us hold up our hands to spell out the word L-O-V-E.

New Annual Passholder Steamboat WIllie Mickey Ear Popcorn bucket

It was some time around January 28th that I saw that Disneyland was going to release a brand new Annual Passholder refillable popcorn bucket. It was madness during the last Little Green Man AP popcorn bucket release, with people waiting 2 hours in line to buy one. Those buckets went on sale on a Tuesday and were sold out within 2 days. History has a way of repeating itself.

Griffith Park Star Party

After the Chocolate Festival this morning, Theresa and I left the kids with her parents and headed up to Griffith Park. Tonight there's a star party on the front lawn! We braved LA traffic and 1:15 later we were at the base of the hill.

15th Belmont Shore Chocolate Festival

It's nearing Valentines Day, which means it's time for all things chocolate! The plan for Saturday was originally to head to Disneyland, but Jacob reminded us that the 15th Annual Belmont Shore Chocolate Festival was also on Saturday, so we knew we had to go!

The Most Stuf Oreos and a comparison between all available Oreo creme filling sizes

How much creme is enough to have in an Oreo Cookie? More. The answer is always more.
Well Oreo heard everyone's cries for More and stepped up their Stuf game.

So today instead of trying different Oreo flavors, we're trying all the different creme filling sizes available.
