Good-Bye Summertime Disney, Hello Halloween Time Disney!

Good-Bye Summertime Disney, Hello Halloween Time Disney!

By Erin

Summertime has come to an end at the happiest place on earth. Yesterday marked the beginning of Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort. Before we say goodbye though, here are some highlights from the summer at Disney.

Disney Summertime  I love watching the horses at Disneyland. They each have such unique personalities. So fun and silly. 🙂

Disney Horse

Such a beautiful view. The castle, the matterhorn and this super adorable horse taking a second to pose for ‘Horsing Around In LA’ and all of his fans while he is working hard at his job.

Big Thunder Mountain Ranch was all decked out in its patriotic best for the summer holidays. Notice Walt Disney there? Even he had a love for horses! 😉

Rock Your Disney Side! A 24 Hour Disney Day!

Rock Your Disney Side! A 24 Hour Disney Day!

By Erin

I was so bummed when I found out I was not going to be able to Rock My Disney Side and make it to the 24 hour Disney Day today at the Disneyland Resort.  As I am writing this, I am in a Starbucks in Minnesota, there is no way I’d be able to get there now! So I can only dream of what it would be like to be there! I hope many of you though will be attending and I can live through all of you! I will be following on Social Media and enjoying that way! For those of you going make sure to check these out, or if you are unable to go like myself then here are some of the highlights that I am bummed to be missing out on! Be sure to check out the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest info!

The FOOD! 

Oh my gosh! If you have been following me here, or anywhere else on social media, then you know I am a total foodie! At Rock Your Disney Side 24 Hour Disney Day, they are offering some Special Eats for the occasion! Chicken and Waffles at the Plaza Inn? Their Fried Chicken is AMAZING if you have not tried it. It’s up there with Mrs. Knott’s Fried Chicken. Now they are going to have it served with Waffles and I won’t be there to enjoy it? Bummed!!

Horsing Around in Circle D

Horsing Around in Circle D

*I was recently part of a fun Blog Swap, where some of the lovely ladies from the SoCal Lady Blogger Group decided that we would see what it was like to blog in someone else’s shoes. You will see my post about Grace posted up on Megan’s blog, Sunshine Wonderland in the near future. Mindy from Budget Fairy Tale was chosen to guest post for me. The most obvious thing I could think of to ask Mindy to write about for me was about horses, given that’s part of my blog’s name and something I felt wouldn’t be too difficult to ask someone to write about. Well, Mindy had the brilliant  idea to join our loves for Disneyland with my love for Horses to create this wonderful post. I hope you enjoy learning about the horses of Disneyland as much as I did!*

Hi everyone! My name is Mindy and I blog at Budget Fairy Tale. I want to thank Erin for having me on Horsing Around in L.A. today! Since I love writing about Disneyland, and Erin loves writing about horses, it only made sense for me to combine our loves and write a little bit about the Disneyland horses!

If you’re a long time resident of L.A. then no doubt you have been to Disneyland, probably multiple times. I’m sure you are familiar with the gorgeous Disneyland horses that pull the street cars. The same horses also lead Cinderella’s Carriage at Disneyland weddings! But have you ever thought about where they go at night? It’s not like the Mickey and Minnie costumes that can be placed on a shelf or hung in a closet. Live animals need careful care and attention, of course. That’s why Disneyland has a full working ranch on property called Circle D!
