Disneyland food, plug in version

Tweet I write a weekly column on Best Buy Canada’s community site, and this week we’re talking Disneyland’s treats and eats. I used to be one of those people who hauled in my own food and left the park to go eat somewhere else after a long day, but I slowly discovered that eating elsewhere made no sense when there …

Hotel reviews – Cozy up to the Residence Inn Tustin

Residence Inn Tustin

There aren’t very many times I’d use the word ‘cozy’ when it comes to a hotel. Hotels are usually nice, clean, and sterile looking, designed to welcome you in and welcome you back out again. After all, if you’re only staying a night or two, you don’t need cozy. You need functional. But cozy is exactly what I’d call the …

Tweet This Disneyland Grand Californian Hotel Review is a re-post of a review from my old blog, but it’s worth a read if you’re heading to the Anaheim area. The year was 1978 and I was 7 years old.

Walt Disney Studios Tour

Walt Disney Studio Sign

Tweet Not very many people are as into Disney as I am, at least around where I live. Although I love Disneyland to the point where I’m an annual passholder (who lives in Canada, go figure), it’s the history of Disney and Walt Disney that really gets my motor running. Last week I did something that very few Disney fans …

Jedi Training Academy tips

Tweet Check out the Youtube video of Darth Maul and the puppets below If my son had to choose his favorite from all of the Disneyland attractions, he’d choose the Jedi Training Academy. Complete with Storm Troopers, Jedi, and Darth Vader fighting an epic battle of good vs evil, there isn’t much about it that a boy wouldn’t like. The …

Which apps are worth the money?

hich-apps-are-worth-the-money

Tweet Which apps are worth the money? In the past few years, apps, like technology, have evolved to the point where they’ve almost completely replaced the way we play traditional video games. I say almost completely because The Sims for iPad will, for me at least, never replace The Sims for my Mac. It’s just not the same experience, and …

Vintage Disneyland video – 1978

Tweet Here’s a Saturday night blast from the past – Vintage Disneyland video from 1978. Zip through the 3o seconds or so and you’ll see the Disneyland Hotel, the old monorail, the parking lot where California Adventure used to be. The tram ride felt like it took forever to get there, even though it looks like it might have been …
