Disneyland's Fantasmic Dessert Package


Linda said, "After a wonderful lunch with the even more wonderful Brenda, I headed back to the hotel for a while before heading back into the park for the evening. I had booked the Fantasmic Dessert package in order to get a reserved seat and let me tell you it was money well spent."




"The view was perfect and I got to sit in comfort whilst the fabulous cast members served your choice of coffee, hot chocolate, tea, sodas etc. and brought you this yummy snack box."











"Yes - this was for one person!



There was cheese, crackers and grapes and a selection of sweet treats. The little dessert with the Mickey head was a delightful cheesecake...this was my fave. There was also a couple of chocolate truffles and a chocolate brownie- style treat that was a little too sweet and rich for me. The sugar cookie was full of raspberry jelly and was really good. There was also a little lemon tart and a coconut macaroon.
Phew! - I didn't eat it all, honest."

This morning Linda was back to Disney California Adventure park and after hitting Radiator Springs Racers a couple of times, she headed off to the...


Fiddler, Fifer & Practical Cafe


Linda said, "This is basically a Starbucks location. It's themed in a very Disney way and the Starbucks touches are very subtle."





Caffe Americano and a Pumpkin Scone



Linda said, "It was fine - just like a regular Starbucks and nothing special."

GO AWAY SANDY!!!!!

Seriously, though - I hope you're able to travel safely (and on time). Even though the storm should be gone by Wednesday, I wonder how bad the flooding and debris will be afterwards (plus, how do airlines deal with all the people whose flights are cancelled tomorrow and Tuesday?). This storm is so frustrating - I just hope the damage won't be that bad.

On a more cheerful note, that caramel apple is so cool! Mickey, on the other hand, needs to have some work done. And I'm definitely in the mood for some Starbucks now - too bad it'll be closed until Wednesday. Where will I get my caffeine fix until then?

Thanks so much - I hope you also stay safe. Honestly, I don't feel too worried about myself here, but I definitely hope my mom will be okay by herself. And I can't imagine how people who live closer to the coast are feeling.

I'm just getting caught up - sorry for my lack of updates. The spotty wi-fi ad AoA AND at the Dolphin (sending a complain for that because you actually have a fee for Internet at that hotel) combined with our commando touring resulted in my crashing as soon as I got in the room. Seriously, I don't know if I had too much planned or if I'm getting old, but I feel like I need a vacation to recover from our WDW weeks! Kudos to all of you for your live reports!

Great reviews from everyone! Eilee will be thrilled that there is steak at a Liberty Inn! The Fantasmic dessert snack box looks wonderful and it was great to see some Brenda/Linda photos.

And Barb, if you talk to chocolateminnie, tell her I said hi!!

I spoke to the United several times over the past few days. I also have a friend that is a flight attendant. They have cancelled all flights Monday and Tuesday...Wednesday is still scheduled as of now. The people from Monday and Tuesday will be on stand by until they can get on a flight or just cancel and get refunded. We have hard tickets so they can't take our seats if our flights goes as scheduled. But, we could face very long delays at the airport. We have booked a rental car (because our cars are too small for that length of trip) from Newark to Orlando as a back up plan. If it is safe to drive but the flights are cancelled or backed up, we will just head out that way then fly home to Newark. It is all very frustrating. I need to get as much accomplished today that requires power as our power company sent out e-mails and pre-recorded messages to expect outages lasting up to 7 days. I am almost all packed and can finish that in the dark. LOL I need to clean, bathe the dog. Thanks for the well wishes! Keeping our fingers crossed! Kids are home...school cancelled until at least Wednesday. So, we are pretty determined to still get there one way or another.

Barb - I will try to keep checking in and update you prior to Wed...not too much to get off track but just to inform you. Also, when we know exactly what we are doing, I will let you know and keep you in the loop from there!!!

Same here... Be safe everyone! I'm in Massachusetts, and so far lots of wind and some rain. All my town offices are closed, which means a day off for me as I am a librarian in my home town. Hopefully my poor doggie will sleep through most of this, otherwise he'll be a panic-stricken wild man the whole time.
