Happy HalloweenTime everybody, we have our long anticipated (not really) update from our Disneyland visit last month.
And when I say last month, I truly mean it.
We visited Disneyland the opening weekend of Knott's Scary Farm, and just, well, we're not a Disneyland update site and it just kind of didn't get posted until I was going through pictures on my phone yesterday and said to myself "oh yeah, we have Disneyland Halloween pics".
We leave for vacation tomorrow so it was either today or never, so here you go.
Our original plan was to do 1 morning at Disneyland and then a full day/evening at DCA and Disneyland, unfortunately we were exhausted and didn't stick around for nighttime stuff. But we still have lots of great stuff to show you.
We'll have a lot of fun stuff for you over the next week and a half or so. We'll be doing some Toronto stuff on Thursday and Canada's Wonderland Haunt on Friday. Next week we get back to Universal Orlando Resort for the first time since 2006 (seriously) and our first ever visit to HHN Orlando (after at least 4 cancelled trips). And then next Saturday we have a day at Epcot, our first visit there since 2007 (yes, seriously). Stay tuned! - Gregg
Last week we made our way back to the Disneyland Resort for our second Disney trip since the parks opened. We hadn't planned on making any return trips prior to the parks re-introducing some kind of Annual Pass program, but, well, it was a big couple of days for our family. Something I'll get into in the second half of this update later this week. In the meantime, enjoy Day 1 of our update at Disney California Adventure.
Be sure to check out our video comparing the parks from early June to late July below.

RSR has one of the best queues
One of a few things they got completely right on opening day
Grizzly Peak is the one of the other things they got right on day one
We finally tried some Avengers drinks!
Last weekend we made our trip to Disney California Adventure for their Touch of Disney food event. We had a fantastic time, it was amazing being back in the park for a few hours, and saying hi to some of our favorite characters from 6+ feet away.
We of course also tried some great food. Enjoy!

Overall, we had a fantastic time at Touch of Disney. Was it worth the $75 entry, probably not, but hey, it's Disney and we had a great day.
As I mentioned in our Comparison video of Taste of Boysenberry Festival, Taste of Universal, and Touch of Disney ... I think out of the 3, Disney had the least amount of available seating and the biggest issues ordering the food.
While I think mobile ordering is the way to go, and that part was indeed easy, getting the Disney Gift Card onto the app to use it for the food was a bit cumbersome. I hope they figure out some way to fix that before the parks open. Because it would be nice just to be able to "load" cards onto the app to use for dining.
But those minor things aside, it's a great event and we're glad Disney has figured out a way to get some people back to work sooner than their April 30th opening date
