T-minus 3 Days to the Happiest Place on Earth

So for the past few weeks, we ve been talking all about how we re heading to California for the D23 Expo 1 and some quality time at Disneyland of course! Now the countdown is really on Carl, Danny and myself from WDW Magazine are heading to Anaheim on Thursday along with Kathleen from Get Down to Disness 2 and Shannon from Destinations to Travel 3 , and we couldn t be more excited! Last time I talked a bit about why we re going to sell The Best of WDW Volume 1 4 along with our 2016 Disneyland and WDW Calendars, meet the fans, and report live from D23 for you!

A few days ago, Carl shared how different Disneyland is from WDW 5 , and so I thought I d check in and let you know how my PLAN is going! As the veteran Disneyland visitor of the group (this is my 14th trip to Disneyland, and will mark 3 months of my life spent at the happiest place on earth!) I was prepared to not have a 180-day mark for Advanced Dining Reservations or the worry of creating Fastpass+ reservations weeks in advance of the trip. As much as I love planning, I m really looking forward to playing it by ear!

But that doesn t mean I don t have a PLAN!

Next stop: Buena Vista Street at Disney s California Adventure!

Heading West: #WDWMagD23 & #Disneyland60

Carl announced last week that some of the WDW Magazine team is heading down to the #D23 Expo 1 in Anaheim, CA this August, and I couldn t be more excited! I grew up on the west coast, and spent most of my childhood Disney days at Disneyland, not WDW, so heading back to California is full of nostalgia for me. But I ve never been to D23 before, and in addition to crossing it off my Disney bucket list, I just can t wait to meet our fans, talk nothing but Disney all day long, and share some of the fantastic products we have coming out this summer!

Packing my bags to head to D23 Mickey makes the ultimate accessory!

I ll be on the floor most of the time, so come on by and say Hi I d love to meet you, and we ll be giving away some great prizes with our partners Get Down to Disness 2 and Destinations to Travel 3
