Disney’s Grand Californian Holiday Traditions

Our elf is back on the shelf, our Jack Skellington is wearing his Santa cap.  It’s the happiest time of year, and one that is full of favorite family traditions.

The Merriest Place on Earth makes for the merriest memories.  We love the decorations on Main Street, and the holiday takeovers on our favorite rides.  One of my favorite holiday traditions actually takes place at the Grand Californian Hotel & Spa at the Disneyland Resort.  Each year my sister Carolyn and I round up our collective six children and bring them to the hotel.
The Grand Californian is nothing short of gorgeous all year round, but hosts some free (or inexpensive) festive fun this holiday season you won’t want to miss!

Knott’s Merry Farm

It’s the merriest time of year at Knott’s Berry Farm! My family and I were able to enjoy the fun from Camp Snoopy to Silver Bullet last weekend, and we had so much fun.  For my husband and myself it was a bit of a homecoming.

Growing up in Orange County, California, Knott’s Berry Farm has always been an institution. For my husband it holds special holiday memories.  Every year for Christmas Eve dinner, all throughout his childhood, his family would head to Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner House.  Now that we are parents, we’re looking to make some holiday memories of our own.
