First-time Disney cruisers often ask what to pack when planning their vacation with us. Packing for a Disney cruise isn’t the same as packing for any other vacation since there’s so much fun you may not even expect, like our swashbuckling Pirate Night! We put together this ultimate packing checklist for first-time Disney cruisers, and my guess is that even some of you have already sailed with us will find it helpful! Let me know in the comments what other items are on your ultimate Disney cruise packing list.

Tonight’s “After Dark” image is of the lovely La Place de Rémy area at Walt Disney Studios Park (at Disneyland Park at Disneyland Paris). This quiet square houses the Ratatouille, l’Aventure Totalement Toquee de Remy attraction, which whisks guests into a crazy, culinary adventure inside Chez Gusteau. Guests begin their adventure on the rooftops of Paris before boarding ratmobiles to scurry through the restaurant.
Have you visited this part of the park yet? Tell us in the “Comments” section below.

Reflecting on the last 60 years of classic Disneyland foods, popcorn has been a beloved snacking staple of Disneyland park since opening day on July 17, 1955. Walt Disney himself enjoyed piping hot popcorn on Main Street, U.S.A.

All that snowfall from Winter Storm Juno this week makes me want to have a snowball fight. If I were picking teams, I’d want Donald on my side. Here’s Donald perfecting his throw in Juneau, Alaska from 2009. See what I did there?
