Disneyland VIP Tour + $500 Giveaway

Getting the VIP treatment at Disney was the most amazing experience we have had as a family.  We went to Disneyland on Christmas and the park was at capacity.  Waiting in line for rides during these times can be a bit much, but with a Disneyland VIP tour you don’t need to worry about that.  Our VIP Tour made us fall even more in love with Disney.

So what is a VIP Tour?  

It’s kind of like a fast pass but even better.  There is a misconception that you don’t have to wait in line.  Okay okay, it is true at many rides.  The best way to describe it is like having an unlimited fast pass.  For example, for the Radiator Springs Racers in Cars Land we waited in the fast pass line.  While we didn’t need to physically get a fast pass we did have to wait in the (short) fast pass line.  It was only 10 minutes compared to the nearly two hour wait.  With VIP you can ride any ride as many times as your heart desires.  

I repeat..AS MANY TIMES AS YOU WANT!  That’s like Disneyland heaven!  

You have a personal guide to help give you the most magical Disneyland experience.  Our tour guide, Savannah, was the sweetest girl.  She made sure my boys, especially Damian, had the best experience.  Our VIP tour was a birthday present for Damian and Savannah made sure he had the best day.  She asked him who his favorite characters were, what rides he wanted to go on, and provided lots of fun facts about the park. 

Your VIP tour guide is your personal Disneyland encyclopedia.  They know the quickest routes to each destination, can recommend and book the best lunch and dinner spots, and make sure you get to see the characters you want to see.  

Damian really wanted to meet Buzz Lightyear and Mickey.  The line for Mickey was insanely long, but we were able to cut through a passage and meet Mickey in practically an instant.

Pax’s face when he saw Mickey was the cutest.

We were able to do 3 days worth of Disneyland in one day with our VIP tour!  

We were able to go on every ride we wanted.  Our other two non-VIP days at Disney were super relaxed since we didn’t feel rushed to get everything done.

A big perk of the VIP tour is having reserved seats for the fireworks, World of Color, and parades!  That means so searching to find a spot for all the best shows.  You have the best seats in the park!

The tour itself is at least 6 hours and you can build from there.  So how much does it cost?  That depends.  It can run around $500 per hour (with a six hour minimum).  However, our tour was gifted from a 33 Club member, Team Lally.  Thank you Uncle Jim!

great america's winterfest

Christmas spirit is real.  As soon as the music starts playing and lights go up there’s just this indescribable feeling that takes over.  I always look for holiday activities to do with the family and recently attended Winterfest at California’s Great America in the Bay Area.  If you aren’t familiar, Great America is a theme park that is transformed into a magical winter wonderland.  Oh my goodness, you guys!  I can’t get over how exceptionally done every single thing was.

The wintery scene features one of the Bay Area’s tallest Christmas trees adorned with thousands of twinkling lights accompanied by giant toy soldiers greeting guests. Winterfest features 7 million LED lights, creating such a vibrant experience that it is visible from the International Space Station.  

Pictures really do not do it justice.

25 Mom and Son Dates Ideas

Thank you to Hickory Farms for sponsoring this post!


Ever since Damian was little, the importance of mommy and son dates were really important to us.  Sometimes we would have them one-on-one and after Paxton I’d bring both on occasion.  I have to admit it was Damian’s idea.  He didn’t want Pax to feel left out.  How sweet is that?!

While I am with my kids all the time, I think creating special moments in the form of dates makes them more meaningful.  Today, I am sharing with you guys some of our favorite date ideas.
