Halloween Carnival At Big Thunder Ranch


Visiting Big Thunder Ranch for the different holidays has become one of my favorite things to do. It’s a nice change of pace from running ride to ride and stuffing your face with delicious snacks and food, and you get to check out unique disney-themed art pieces, special character meets, arts and crafts for kids, and more.

Welcome to the I <3 Disney Blog

Sleeping Beauty's Castle as the sun sets

Hi, I’m Tam, Disney enthusiast! If you found your way here, I hope that you love Disney too. I wanted to create this space to share the sights and sounds of Disneyland from my point of view. There are some awesome Disney-oriented blogs out there, like Disney Food Blog and the official Disney Parks blog, but 1) you can never have enough Disney and 2) I want to focus more on things like:

  • New Disney Park products, like seasonal apparel, and more
  • How a gadget-oriented person, such as myself, packs and travels on a day (or multiple-day) visit
  • And of course, food pics and reviews!

About every month or so, I’ll visit the parks, and there is always something new to see. So stay tuned as we explore the food, rides, merchandise, and fun of Disneyland.
