My Magical Trip to Disneyland’s Exclusive Club 33!

Hello friends! I know. It, once again, I’ve disappeared for quite some time! Life has been busy with work and getting my health back together and re-writing Struck Out during NaNoWriMo this month but I’ve missed it here, as I always do. I always try to return!

I got to experience something SERIOUSLY magical yesterday and I thought it was a great way to remind everyone that I’m still here.

For those of you who might not know – I absolutely love the Disneyland Resort. I grew up there, have been a passholder pretty consistently since 2005 when I was 17 years old and am on my second round of being a cast member there. I love the attractions, I love the food, I love interacting with cast members and characters and other guests. I love the magic. I buy into all of it 100%. Every time there’s something new, I want to experience it. I want to do everything.

Sara’s Favorite and Most Underrated Disney Animated Movies Per Decade!

So I’ve officially been working for the Disneyland Resort for roughly two weeks now and so Disney has been on the BRAIN for sure. My sister, Dink, is also a newbie Disney influencer – check out her Instagram and YouTube – and was recently looking for some new ideas for some videos and I suggested favorite Disney animated movies by decade and then I realized, oh hey, that’s an awesome idea. Her video will be coming out at the same time as this post so I highly recommend you check it out and see how we both chose our favorite movies – some of these? Were super hard! I’m a kid of the 90s and grew up on Disney so I have a lot of Disney movies that I love.

Because of that, I decided also to talk about my most underrated Disney movie of each decade is as well. Keep in mind – I’m still working super slowly through the animated catalog so these are all based on which ones I’ve actually watched. I’ve gotten through the late 70s though so I have seen most of them at this point. Let’s dive in, shall we?

The Return to Disneyland – What It’s Like to Be Back in the Park After a Year!

After 430 days, I finally returned to Disneyland and it was just as magical as I had hoped it would be!

The last time I was inside Disneyland park was on February 24th of 2020, just a few days before my birthday. I always go to Disneyland on my birthday – its tradition – but last year, we went to Seattle to celebrate so we went a few days earlier. If I had known it was the last time…well, I’m not sure. Disneyland wouldn’t close until March 12th but when I came back from Seattle, I was SO sick for a week or so AND it was raining the last couple of days the park was open. I remember thinking, I don’t want to get sick AGAIN and, its fine, the park will be open again soon.

Little did I know…
