Not far from Disneyland is The Outlets at Orange. Just a mere 3.5 miles from Disneyland Park, California Adventure and Downtown Disney, The Outlets offer a wide range of restaurants, making it an ideal stop for a bite to eat either before or after your Disney visit. Looking for souvenirs or some Disney gear to wear? They’ve got that too! Several retailers at The Outlets at Orange carry Disney themed products, including: Hot Topic, H&M, Tilly’s, and Claire’s. So you can take a break, shop or fuel up before or after your next Disney adventure. All things Disney can be found at half the cost of park prices. Parking is free too! In addition, the Anaheim Resort Transportation (ART) Route #16 will take you from The Outlets at Orange to Disneyland.

In addition to fabulous shopping, this beautiful open-air center also offers fun and entertainment for the entire family with over 25 incredible restaurants & cafes, plus an indoor Vans SkatePark, Dave & Buster’s, Lucky Strike Bowling and a huge AMC 30 movie theatre with IMAX. There is something for everyone to enjoy here. You can definitely feel the Disney Magic here and find some pixie dust. 😉

The Outlets at Orange is on The City Drive just off the I-5 in Orange, California and serves nearby communities including Anaheim, Costa Mesa, and Buena Park. Here are some of my favorite things that I found on my visit to The Outlets at Orange.

Hot Topic

Hot Topic had the largest selection of Disney items that I loved. They had all my favorites: Beauty & the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch, Alice in Wonder Land, Marvel and so much more!

Look at all the adorable Lilo and Stitch items! I had to grab a few for myself.

Lots of Marvel shirts and other items too! PERFECT to wear for the Summer of Heroes Showcase going on at the Disney California Adventure Park through September 10th. I LOVE the Groot T-shirts!

Knott’s Ghost Town Alive!

Knott’s Ghost Town Alive!

By Kirstin

*We attended as media for purposes of this post. All thoughts and opinions remain our own.*

 

It’s Summer Time and for my family, that means making the rounds to our favorite theme parks!  Thanks to my friend, Erin at Horsing Around in L.A. and Knott’s Berry Farm, my family was able to go earlier than planned.

What’s new at Knott’s?  My family was invited to find out.  Ghost Town Alive turns Calico Ghost Town into a lively party!  Be careful though, there are shady horse rustlers ready to lead you astray!  Through September 4th, Ghost Town Alive! returns to Knott’s Berry Farm for another action-packed summer complete with bandits, cowboys, robberies, judges, a good ol’ western hoedown, and much more! You can visit the beloved town of Calico and experience an authentic western adventure by becoming a star in this summer’s story of the Wild West, where the power to unlock adventures is in the hands of every guest.

My children were excited to see the characters in Ghost Town however, there was a stop that is a must in our family.  One of their teachers instilled the love of Knott’s Berry Farm into them in preschool and she often spends her days in the Fossil and Mineral Store as you walk in.  The geodes are stunning and can be cut right in front of your eyes.

If you have never been in this store, make it a point.  The staff is knowledgeable and LOVE teaching their love of rocks and minerals.  We had learned about the Magic Rock today!  What is the Magic Rock?  This boulder has a high magnetic content in it which causes metal to stand on end!  Check this out!

My son had recently attended a field trip to Ghost Town with his 4th grade class and I was really impressed by how much he learned!  We had our own tour and history guide with us.

My family moseyed along down the street and discovered that the Wild West Stunt Show was about to start,  Knott’s Berry Farm’s stunt shows are so much fun!  The story-line keeps the audience interested while the stunts take your breath away.  You never know what will happen next!  The characters may fall from a balcony or get shot with a Gatlin Gun, you never know!

Milk and Eggs

By Erin

I received free groceries in exchange for an honest review of Milk & Eggs. 

Milk and Eggs delivers farm-fresh groceries directly to your door, saving you  valuable time and money. Their selections can all be found on their website, including everything from fruits, vegetables, meat, seafood, dairy, and local artisanal products. By using Milk and Eggs, I’ve managed to make my grocery and household shopping easier. With such a hectic schedule this service is a life saver.  Delivery service currently includes Los Angeles County and most of Orange County (check out the map below). Imagine how nice it would be to wake up in the morning knowing your grocery shopping is already done and is waiting for you at the door. All you have to do is open up the door and put your groceries away. Pretty sweet.

With Milk and Eggs you are getting the freshest foods possible because they are farm direct which cuts out shelf and long transit times for the freshest foods. They deliver to your door for free saving you time and money! Your groceries are delivered in these bright yellow bags that are reusable. Here’s what was inside my yellow grocery bag. All the food was kept nice and cool in here. On the bottom was a large ice pack.

Milk and Eggs is inexpensive (lower than Whole Foods) because the produce comes straight from the farms, cutting out the costs of a middle-man. If you buy the same groceries on a regular basis you can subscribe to weekly or bi-weekly deliveries. Deliveries come between 5 – 7am, so by the time you wake up all your yummy goodies are on your doorstep! So what did I get? Let’s take a look.
