If you’re a regular reader, you know we celebrated our first year in the blogosphere with a huge thank you and a fun question, “Would Walt Disney have blogged?” And you gave some great answers:

Also this week, we shared a sneak peek inside the Pirates of the Caribbean Suite at Disneyland Hotel. The suite features spectacular views of the Never Land Pool area below, Santa Catalina Island, the nearby San Bernardino Mountains and fireworks over Disneyland park. And of course, when you ring the doorbell, it plays, “Yo Ho, Yo Ho, A Pirate’s Life for Me.”

  • Somehow I missed that piece on the Pirates of the Caribbean Suite. Thanks for reposting it!

    As someone who enjoys theming my own living space, Disney’s suite designs are a goldmine of ideas. Loving Victorian and Gothic Revival style, I pour over pictures and videos of places like the PotC Suite, Cinderella Castle Suite in WDW, Grand Californian and even the various Main Streets looking for inspiration.

    You guys do fantastic work and, who knows, may someday I’ll be able to appreciate these suites firsthand ^_~

  • I love this blog!!!! I have a question… Earlier this year it was announced that Disney’s Aladdin-A Musical Spectacular would be cancelled. I just looked at the entertainment schedule and much to my delight it is still playing. Is this indefinate or is the cancellation just put off for now?

    • Thanks, Anne. And yes, that’s right…”Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular” will return to the Hyperion Theater Thursday, Oct. 7.

  • This blog sparkles when it features items about the flagship park Disneyland and the overall Disneyland Resort. Truly the best parts of the blog come from Anaheim contributors!
