10 Days til Disneyland – Space Mountain!

Space Mountain at Disneyland is a uniquely different ride from the one at Walt Disney World.  Sophie doesn’t like the Space Mountain in the Magic Kingdom, but I’m hoping that she will at least give it a try at Disneyland Park because the biggest difference is that the space vehicles have side-by-side seating, not one after another.  With this in mind, Sophie has told me that she is going to try the roller coaster out — because, as she puts it, “If I’m terrified, I can grab onto someone!”

We are sitting at an even 10 days until our trip to Disneyland, and each day is one day closer to a fantastic trip!  Some of the readers of My Dreams of Disney have told me that they are going to be there also, so we’ll see if we happen to come across them in our travels!  Wouldn’t that be fun?  Also, my buddy Denny has told me that I need to be his eyes and ears over there since he won’t be there, and I have to report back all that I experience!

Have you ridden the Disneyland and Walt Disney World versions of Space Mountain?  If so, which version did you like better?  Why not take a moment and answer our poll below, and thanks for stopping by!


12 Days til Disneyland – Fireworks!

When I think about how funny it is that Sophie and I didn’t used to watch the fireworks at Walt Disney World, it amazes me how much we really like them now!  All because of a simple set of ear plugs for each of us to calm down the loud sounds a bit!

Today we are at day 12 in our countdown to Disneyland, and for today, we are going to take a look at the Fireworks at Disneyland Park!  The entire week we are at Disneyland the fireworks will be on display at 9:30PM, so we’ll have plenty of opportunity to enjoy them!

It will be really interesting to me to see if we like the fireworks show at Disneyland, which, by the way, is called Magical, will be better, the same, or worse then Wishes at the Magic Kingdom or Illuminations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot.  What do you all think about the fireworks show at Disneyland?  Is it better than the ones at Walt Disney World?  Please think about it and let me know in the comments section below, and thanks for stopping by My Dreams of Disney!
