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
Time for a quick look at the latest (and probably last for awhile) attraction coming to Pixar Pier at Disney California Adventure.
The Inside Out Emotional Whirlwind looks like it's getting some final touches and should be ready to greet guests soon.
Will be nice to see an attraction in this area again. Check it out!!
