Top 5 Reasons to stay at the Disneyland Hotel Resort

  1. The Convenience Factor – This ones a given but nothing beats being able to leave the parks and walk straight back to your room to just hit the sack. It’s also super neat to be able to take a quick nap or freshen up. Or better yet, to simply cool off poolside and then go back to the parks. 
  2. Extra Magic Hours & Early access to FastPass+  – Did you know the park is literally opened earlier just for hotel guests? Additional hours at the parks each day provide more time for fun with your family and friends. Check with a cast member to see which park is open as they alternate on certain days of the week. Learn more about Extra Magic Hours Here. Plus, secure up to 3 FastPass+ experiences at one park per day per guest of your visit in advance—at no additional charge. Once they’re redeemed, simply visit a FastPass+ kiosk in the park to reserve more—subject to availability. Again, saving the family more time.
  3. Fireworks Show Viewing – If you have little ones that probably won’t stay up past 9p then what I’m about to tell you is key! When you book your stay at the Disneyland Hotel, request to stay in the Adventure Tower overlooking Downtown Disney. The best part of staying in this tower is that you can come back to your room before 9p, get the kids bathed/showered and sit back in the comfort of your own hotel room to watch the spectacular Disneyland firework show. Hands down the best experience ever. See it all in our IG stories here.  Also, be sure to check here to see all shows scheduled per season.
  4. Monorail Waterslides & Cabanas – Our oldest, Mia, is a summer baby and she absolutely loves being in the water. I can honestly say we think Mia wants to stay at the Disneyland hotel for her birthday more so because of the retro themed pools and monorail waterslides. Which by the way, the waterslides are for all kid ages and there’s even an area for the little ones to splash around. And the cabanas are so worth renting too! They come with
    • Complimentary fruit platter
    • 2 chaise lounge chairs
    • Love seat
    • Coffee table
    • Sofa
    • 32-inch LCD television with cable access (Disney Junior and even Disney Music!)
    • Ceiling fan
    • Safe
    • Towel service
    • Telephone for internal Resort calls (place room service orders and get it delivered straight to your cabana)
    • Mini refrigerator with complimentary water bottles
    • A cabana server
    • Free pool diapers for the little ones (score! This is actually offered to all hotel guests. Not just cabana rentals.)

Trust us, this is a good one to read!  Top 5 Reasons To Stay at Disneyland Hotel-The_Mother_Overload_Lily_Ro_Photography-Travel Rewards-Family Vacation-Kid Birthday

Pineapple Dole Whips – Yes, you read that correctly. If you’re a fan like us, guess what? You can grab one at The Coffee House inside the hotel. But wait, it gets better. There’s hardly ever a line nor a wait at all and you can order it with rum too!

  • 🥗Ok, you guys asked for it and I’m delivering! Fresh off the hand mixer and mixing bowl. Our homemade Orange Poppy Seed Dressing recipe. This is what really gets my kids to eat the kale. That and also because as mentioned, we use dinosaur kale 🦖 😆 Best of all? This salad dressing is the easiest to whip up and I bet you already have most of the ingredients needed in your kitchen pantry. Once you realize how easy it is to make vs buy, I’m hoping you’ll switch to the dark side. I love being able to modify the sugar intake. 😆😉 Ingredients 
1/4 c freshly squeezed orange juice
2 tbs honey
2 tbs apple cider vinegar
1/3 c yogurt of choice - my kids love Simple Truth organic vanilla bean Greek yogurt 
1/4 EVO or avocado oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbs poppy seeds

  • When you hear the word summer, what comes to mind? .
.
I think about warm weather, the beach, pool time, eating outdoors and drinking a delicious glass of rosé. 😋 And if you’ve been following me for awhile you know I love me some good wine and I’m a huge fan of @garyvee So when I heard Gary launched @empathywines I couldn’t wait to try the rosé. And not just saying it because I’m a fan of his but seriously so so good! Go to my stories to check it out. #empathywines

  • This week, I made a promise to myself only this time, I’m choosing not to break it! 
As moms, we always put our kids, significant others, family, friends, work, etc. before us. Amiright? 🙋‍♀️ How many times have you committed and always made the extra effort to show up? Yet when we make a promise to ourselves we give up. That goes for everything not just that “workout” time. I’m talking about your dreams, your goals, aspirations whether it be in life, health, love, mental state whatever it is. Ladies, remember to be good to yourselves too. Don’t be that flaky friend that always leaves you hanging. And don’t get me wrong, I’m learning that keeping my promises I make to myself are possibly the hardest things to show up for. The mind is sooo powerful and loads my head with excuses and mom guilt. But I’m not giving up on myself and I hope you don’t either. We got this! 🙌 Shout out to @msrachelhollis for writing a book that helped me realize this! #motivation💪
  • What's your favorite summer salad to whip up at home?🥗 ¿Cuál es tu ensalada favorita para preparar en casa durante el verano?.
.
This Orange Poppy Seed Kale Salad is our fav. How do I get my kids to eat it? We use dinosaur kale because its bumpy leaves resembles what dinosaur skin looked like and my girls love dinosaurs. 🦖 😆 Also, I make this super easy salad dressing using ingredients we already have. Homemade salad dressing is way better than store bought as you control what actually goes into it. Total win-win.

  • How was your Mother’s Day weekend? 💐
.
.
I was so excited to go back to a restaurant my husband and I found back when I was pregnant with Lexi. We had gone on a date night and loved that it gave a historic vibe and that it was all outdoor dining. Surrounded by gorgeous flowers and their outdoor furniture was on point. We kept talking about this place for 3 years (I know, crazy!) but just never actually made the effort to go back. So on Saturday we made the effort. And guess what? .
.
Turns out the family owned business was forced to shut down a year ago to make way for apartments. It was heartbreaking to hear. But then my 7 yr old said “mami, it doesn’t matter where we eat as long as we’re together.” Geez! Who is this kid? 😆 She was so right. So we ate somewhere else which had outdoor seating and then it started pouring rain. We rushed inside the restaurant.🤣 Did you catch my stories? After the storm passed, a beautiful rainbow 🌈 showed up. 😊#familytime #myhappyplace #creatingmemories #misamores
