Last week, we hosted Thomas Lyons and his family, from Manhattan Beach, Calif. – winner of one of the prizes being awarded during Disneyland Diamond Days! In the video below, join Thomas, his wife Faith and daughters Grace and Phoebe as they enjoy their last Disneyland Resort visit before Grace and Phoebe head to college this semester. The visit was made extra special with their prize package, which included a three-day, two-night Disneyland Resort vacation and an exclusive tour of Disney California Adventure park before the park opened for the day, capped off with a special ride in the Red Car Trolley with Mickey Mouse.

A unique Peter Pan-themed restaurant opened at Disneyland park on August 29, 1955. The Chicken of the Sea Pirate Ship and Restaurant was a Fantasyland icon that once stood where Dumbo the Flying Elephant is today.
Part of the elaborately themed restaurant location included Skull Rock Cove where you could sit and enjoy your meal.
In 1969 the location changed its name to Captain Hook’s Galley, and in 1982 it was removed during the creation of New Fantasyland at Disneyland park.
The legacy of this popular Disneyland park location lives on today. At Disneyland Paris, guests can enjoy Pirate Galleon, a recreation of the Disneyland park original, and at Disneyland park itself, some say the watery rockwork adjacent to the Dumbo Flying Elephant queue and Storybook Land Canal Boats is actually part of the original Skull Rock Cove.
Who knew there’s a national day to remind us to step away from the salt shaker, meant to encourage us to reach for herbs instead of salt? The Disney chefs love the idea, and we’re sharing a few of their favorite tips.
You may remember that on July 17 we announced a special philanthropic program in honor of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration called Million Dollar Dazzle. Once a month during the celebration, our Million Dollar Dazzle Crew is surprising local nonprofits with $60,000, amounting to more than $1 million.
As ABC’s smash show “Dancing with the Stars” prepares to kick-off its 21st season next month, more celebrities are being announced as competitors.

Last month on the Disney Parks Blog, we announced breakfast would be coming to Garden Grill Restaurant beginning November 8. Today, I have a deliciously easy recipe to share from this new dining experience: Chip’s Sticky Bun Bake. This new signature item is ooey-gooey and sure to be something the whole family will love.
