Anonymous asked: Hello! I have a pretty basic question lol, when you go to city hall to get a button ("I'm celebrating", "1st visit", etc) do you have to pay?
Nope! They’re free!
Disney Fun Fact #8
Disney’s Drinking Fountains
Have you ever taken the time to look closely at the drinking fountains at Disney parks? The most obvious detail is that the heights are designed for an adult and a child.
However, the most interesting thing is that some of the fountains are designed so that when the adult and the child drink water at the same time, they naturally end up looking at eachother.
Families can share a smile and a drink!
Blue Ribbon Bakery
1/2 c. warm water
2 packages yeast
2 T. sugar
1 (3 1/2 oz.) package instant vanilla pudding
2 c. milk
1/2 c. unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs, beaten
1 t. salt
8 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. unsalted butter, melted
2 c. brown sugar
2 T. cinnamon
In small bowl, combine water, yeast, and sugar. Stir until dissolved. Set
In large bowl, mix pudding according to package instructions with milk. To
this add 1/2 cup melted butter, egg and salt. Mix well, then add yeast
mixture and blend well. Gradually add flour and knead until smooth. Place in
a very large greased bowl. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double
in size. Punch down and let rise again for second time.
Roll dough on a very large floured surface. Dough should roll out to a long
rectangle, about 34 x 21 inches in size. Take the 1 cup of melted butter and
spread over entire dough surface, using a pastry brush.
In small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over top
of buttered dough. Roll dough up like a jelly roll.
Measure dough every 2 inches and cut with a knife. Take each roll into the
palm of your hand and gently pack the roll (this keeps it from coming apart
Place each roll in a buttered baking pan and allow to rise in a warm place
for about 20 minutes. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until golden brown in
color, about 15-20 minutes. Frost rolls while still warm.

myneverlandunbirthdayparty asked: We used to go to Disneyland every year for my birthday, until my parents got a divorce. And so I haven't gone in about 7 years; and this summer for my 16th birthday my boyfriend is taking me to Disneyland. And I want to know if there's any very special places we could go to make the day amazing. I probably won't go back for years. So any suggestions?
You can search Disneyland Birthday if you are looking that route
You can search Disneyland date if you want to go that route
or you can search Disneyland Secrets if you want to go that route

"We’d like to dedicate this to our guardian angle, that’s my son, Ryder Buck. Thank you, Ryder." -Chris Buck, Director of Frozen, on accepting the Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film
Chris Buck’s youngest son, Reed, goes to my school, so I know the story of what happened to Ryder Buck, who Chris Buck, the Director of Frozen, thanked in his Oscar speech, and I wanted to share it with you because I feel like 99% of the audience in that room and across America did not, and still do not know the meaning of Mr. Buck’s acceptance speech.
Ryder Buck was diagnosed with Stage 4 testicular cancer in August of 2012. He loved music and was aspiring to be a musician, and remained positive through everything he went through. His treatments began to work, and his test results showed he was cancer free in April of 2013.
In October, my neighbors were having a party which my parents went to, and Ryder’s mother was telling everyone how excited and ecstatic she was that her son was free of cancer.
A week or so later, Ryder died in a car crash. He was hit by two cars on the freeway. Over 1,200 people attended his memorial service in November. The service was only to last 90 minutes, but as so many people showed up, it ended up being over 3 and a half hours.
Ryder had died 24 days before Frozen hit theaters.
This is so sad…
Oh how awful! I hope he was proud of his fathers work. =[
I can’t imagine how crazy it must’ve been like to run into Walt Disney while at Disneyland…
