I live about 1 1/2 hours from Disneyland so I try to get there once a month. I'm obsessed with Disney stuff, but I really like the more niche areas like Mechanical Kingdom Disney Steampunk and Kingdom Hearts video games. The Princess I'm most like is Be
The drummers were very cool! We saw it the second day and it seemed like the sound was messed up, which kinda sucked for the Soundsational parade.

Passing through a series of spaces, including the Grand Hall, you’ll have the opportunity to meet as many as three Disney princesses, from classic stories such as “Cinderella” and “Sleeping Beauty.”
Dont forget to grab a sweet treat from Maurice's Treats! At the time, (isn't there more now?) the adorable cart featured 3 “Twists” and a new signature beverage: Boysen Apple Freeze.
