A Short Trip to Disneyland

Shag's Enchanted Tiki Room

Don’t tell anyone, but this morning I walked two friends into Disneyland—a practice that Disney discourages because of the lost revenue. I, however, made up for almost all that lost revenue by shopping—a new Shag line commemorating the Enchanted Tiki Room’s 50th anniversary (highly collectible!)—plus I stayed to see the new “Mickey and the Magical Map” show in the Fantasyland theater. So it wasn’t really like I just walked in and then out. The Mickey show got a rave review in the L.A. Times when it opened a few weeks ago and, indeed, was lots of fun: several musical numbers jammed into just 23 minutes, including a lovely medley by Pocahontas, Mulan and Rapunzel. Afterward, I rushed home to finish the rest of my workday.

The short trip reminded me, though, that I hadn’t blogged about Disneyland in a while. So roll your eyes if you must, these photos are for my sister to enjoy!
