1961: All-Night Prom at Disneyland Photographed by Ralph Crane

PROM 16

Dapper Day took place this past Sunday and we loved seeing everyone in the parks all dolled up and looking so very dapper! We took part in the Fall Dapper Day last year and we’ll be dressing up for the Spring Dapper Day this coming year ! (Dapper Day hotel rates are available now). After spending the day with all these fine-looking people, we went online to start getting some inspiration for our Spring Dapper Day looks. That’s when we found these amazing photos by Ralph Crane for Life Magazine. These photos were taken in 1961 when Disneyland opened it’s doors to the graduating classes for an all-night prom! We’ve posted a few of our favorites below but you can see all the great snapshots from that night by clicking here!

Polaroid Originals: Mickey’s 90th

Polaroid Originals

Took some polaroids while we were in the parks yesterday. I had originally got this film back when we were celebrating Mickey’s 90th but kept saving it for a “special occasion” but every time you go to Disneyland is a special occasion right? Is that cheesy?? maybe. But we had a lot of fun capturing our day through these polaroids.  I wish I would’ve stocked up earlier because it was just so much fun to shoot with! Luckily I found some online so I ordered a few more packs to bring with me during the holiday season! #AllAboardDisney

Food & Wine Festival 2019

Today is the last day to enjoy all the deliciousness at the Food & Wine Festival in DCA. We bought the Sip and Savor Pass ($49 with AP discount) which we love doing for all of the food events that take place at DCA. We were able to mosey along to each vendor, try what we wanted and come back at a later date to try some more! We really enjoy trying all the different foods – we’ve posted some of our favorites below!

It was a bit chilly when we first went to try some food so we decided to stop and get the Fiscalini White Cheddar Lager Soup from the Nuts About Cheese booth. The soup was served in a mini Boudin sourdough bowl so you could eat every last bite of this delicious dish.

Close by was the California Craft Brews booth where Cody got the Karl Strauss Brewing Company, Columbia Street, Amber Lager and Courtney got the Pepperoni Pizza Egg Rolls. I’ll say this now, us three siblings all have very different tastes in what we like and what we agree on. These egg rolls are something we will never agree on. I won’t name names but some thought it was amazing and others thought that that person was CRAZY.

Another glimpse into our disagreements of tastes… Kenzie was not sold on the Esquites Sweet Corn Nuggets but Courtney loved them so much she had them twice! Also, Cody loves Churros (not part of the Food & Wine Festival but worth noting).
