5th birthday celebration wouldn’t be complete without a makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique located at Disneyland, CA! I got DMs asking about pricing and if it’s Worth it!?! So here’s the run down & my review on the Bibbidi Bobbidi boutique experience!!

First things first!!! Is it worth it?? 100% yess! The pricing varies so there is a package for everyone! This is something that should be for a special occasion such as a birthday or accomplishment! London is a girly girl so this experience is everything and more it includes a dress ( unlesss you bring your own), hair, nails, makeup but your very own fairy Godmother in training. Plus a sash & backpack of the goodies used for your makeover.

Lunar New Year activities for kids

It’s the year of the mouse! Well the rat but what a better way to celebrate then here at the parks. Now until February 9th! I love that DCA is giving recognition and honoring cultural traditions with us. My children loved this event. We spent the entire afternoon exploring and learning new things. My favorite was the wishing wall! From people all around the world their wishes are tied to a chain and it was amazing to see in person! If you make it to this event tag me in your stories with your favorite marketplace foods & favorite things about this event!

I put a list fun activities going on during the Lunar Year at Disney California Adventure!

1. Mulan’s Lunar New Year Procession

11:45 AM, 1:00 PM, 2:45 PM @paradise garden park

This is a must the story, dances, and costumes were all so beautiful and amazing. If you want sit there is seating along the stairs or benches. The parade comes through the paradise garden grill before making its way to the stage. If you like to get pictures like me. London loved this show and it help Antonio‘s attention during the whole show.

2. Paradise Garden Bandstand

12:15 PM, 1:25 PM, 2:20 PM

Located at the stage at Paradise garden grill. Enjoy the cultural music. Get some energy out here for kids. We talked about music around the world before catching this 25 min show. My son loves to move so it was great to get some wiggles out and sit and relax.

3. Hurry Home – Lunar New Year Celebration

8:15pm or 9:45

We didn’t make it to this one. But with the rest of the great effort and detail I imagine a wonderful show where world of color is held. Check app times for this one. It’s a 6 min show so grab a snack and head over to the Hurry Home water show!

4. Character meet and greets

Meet Mickey, Minnie, Mulan, or mushu at paradise garden grill area. Check the app time on this one. To check on the app it’s very easy. Select characters, and show list to see what times they are available. Mickey and Minnie are dressed in the most beautiful outfits. Mulan looks amazing and mushu was so up beat and funny. This line gets long. So if the line is long have some activities ready. We played eye spy and did some letter games to help time pass and my youngest I had snacks in hand for him when he started to get restless.

5. Lunar New Year Marketplaces

Once you enter the lunar even area there is different food stands. We tried a few and loved the mandarin green tea tart and pork bao taco! So many great options. And on the plus side your able to mobile order and pick up at the location. Mobile ordering is available on the Disneyland app. Also if you are interested there is a:

Sip & savor pass your able to enjoy 6 yummy dishes for only $42

Located near the ariel ride!
My ratings : taco 10/10 the hot dog bun to me was very cute but 7/10 my kids loved it! 10/10 for Antonio
The tart was delicious 10/10 and would try this again!

6. Lucky wishing wall- located near paradise garden grill

This is amazing just to see. All the wishes tied together is so beautiful! There is Mickey cards that you can write your wish on and ties to attach them. We each had our wish my daughter loved doing this.
In this area there was also a calligraphy artist with Chinese writing. We missed this one but I definitely want to come back to have London get one.

7. Kids coloring activities located along side the little mermaid ride.

London loves coloring and Antonio enjoyed this here. He danced to the music of the procession while coloring. There was adorable Mickey fans they colored that we used for the rest of the day.
Face painting is also available for $18 here by the ariel ride

Overall this event is a must. I was able to do a lot and the kids really enjoyed it all. Check it out you have until February 9th here at DCA!! Tons of merch too located in front of the ariel ride! Must see!!

What is something you look forward to when you visit? Or if you have gone which is your favorite part of this event?

Disneyland Balloon is a must on your vacation! My 5 reasons Why…

Disney Balloons are the best little souvenir on your next family vacation!!! Now if your a passholder I get it!!! My daughter used to ask for a balloon every time. Its tradition to get one for her birthday. It makes a Birthday extra magical and perfect for a family vacation! Here are my top 5 reasons to grab a balloon on your next family trip!

  1. Grab a balloon on your next family vacation! I’m a sucker for matching shirts to spot one another but a balloon you can spot a family member from a distance. You won’t regret this when you get distracted by a character and then look ahead and see that mickey balloon your niece just got!!
  2. Stroller spotter. Yess park your stroller to get on a few rides.. now there’s a million strollers lined up.. ok an exaggeration but yours will definitely stand out of the crowd. Also great distraction for a you g child in a stroller to!!
  3. Return policy! Yes!!! you can return a damaged, deflated or popped ballon on your family trip.. and it’s free! Just take it to any cast member with balloons and get a new one. So don’t worry if during your hotel stay it begins to can just take it back for a brand new one🙌🏻
  4. Picture opportunity! Disney pictures are magical. You can capture joy, excitement, happiness.. the list goes on. Sharing your family milestones, memories at the Disneyland park is so special. My favorite is to Announce your babies gender with a blue or pink balloon. Get a ballon pic for your birthday, Engagement, anniversary, best friend trip. Getting creative to make an announcement is so much fun!
  5. These balloons last…I think that’s why they have a free return policy because they last way beyond your trip.. weeks even months. What a pleasant reminder of a great trip.

What’s your must have on your Disneyland or disneyworld vacation?
