May 2017 was my second trip to Disneyland, both booked with Magic Happens Here. I went into my time there differently, e.g. skipping lines, jumping in the ones that in the past I may have thought were too "long" and wow did it make a difference. There is so much to see and do there, making the most of your time is a must!
My girlfriend's and I had the time of our lives, eg. laughing, eating the most yummiest food, shopping and just stopping for a moment to take it all in.
Small things like the music and the amazing smells as you walk down main street are details that make Disneyland such a magical place, a place I just can't get enough of.
Magic Happens Here make my Disney experiences smooth and hassle free, nothing to worry about but, having fun.
"The Happiest Place On Earth" - in my eyes, yes it is!
At the end of November, start of December last year (2019), my friend Jess and I went on a trip of a lifetime to Disneyland, California. For me, it hard to narrow down highlights, the whole trip was amazing.
However, a few of the highlights included the black Friday shopping which we attended from 8pm and got back to the hotel at 2am, the Ice Hockey game we went to the next day, the 10 days we spent exploring Disneyland and our trip to universal studios. Disneyland land was more magical than anything I could’ve expected, the lights hung up for the Christmas time were stunning. The hotel we stayed at was absolutely stunning, The Hyatt, Orange County, if I ever make it back to Disneyland, that is where I’ll stay, the hotel had everything we needed, including a Starbucks, which was a must on those early morning Disney trips. The hotel was also about a 10 minute uber from The Cheesecake Factory, which had the most delicious pasta dishes, which lasted nearly 3 meals for me, and the cheesecake was heavenly.
I cannot wait for another trip with the Magic Happens Here!
Would highly recommend Magic Happens Here to plan any overseas trip but especially one to Disneyland! They were incredibly helpful during the whole planning process and still went above and beyond while we were over there.
For anyone that is thinking of taking a trip to Disney look no further. In the past 6 years I have been to America twice with Disneyland being a massive part of our holiday. It’s a place where as a kid you watch all the movies and dream to go and as an adult you get lost in the magic and Magic Happens Here enhances that magic with their in depth knowledge not only of Disney but it’s surrounding areas. After Disney they organized for us to go to Las Vegas, San Francisco, San Diego and two trips to Mexico. Future upcoming trips to Disneyland or Disney World will be set up by Magic Happens Here because they are without a doubt the best.
Why would you want to go to Disneyland friends asked? We had the perfect excuse - our granddaughters Dancing School was invited to dance at in the Grand Parade at Disneyland for Australia Week. Dancers had to be 8 years old, and Kyralee turned 8 that month.
Our party of 10 included 4 grand-parents, 4 parents, and 2 children, 8, and 3. We combined this wonderful opportunity with a fabulous USA/Canada holiday, so ably organised by Magic Happens Here.
We visited all 8 areas of Disneyland, on foot, by train, sailing ship, carriage, river boat, and streetcar, mostly by foot. Boy, did we walk! What a fantastic smorgasbord of attractions we found!
Our week commenced with a welcoming breakfast ,in Goofy’s Kitchen, with ‘ real’ Chip, and Dale, and, of course, Alice. They all sang Happy Birthday to Elizabeth. Then, off to Fantasyland (which was the favourite land, and visited often), then to watch the dazzling Grand Parade.
During subsequent days, we enjoyed the delights of Tomorrowland (with Nemo’s Submarine a highlight), Carsland, Frontierland (a musical spectacular), and all the other attractions.
Roaming spotlessly clean Disneyland throughout the day are beautifully presented Disney characters impeccably trained to help people of all ages.
Main St. USA was a highlight! Each day, at dusk, an amazing, spectacular, parade shows off Disneyland to perfection, with dazzling floats, characters, and colourful enthusiastic dancers. Our Kyralee was the last dancer in the Parade. What a moment for her, and our family, and a return to our childhood.
We all agreed that our three generational Disneyland week was magic.
Magic Happens Here planned our family trip to Disneyland, Vegas and Mexico and it was fantastic. They know how to plan trips for families and accommodate young children. Highly recommend!
All trips need planning and this one was no exception, we wanted to ensure we got to see everything on our bucket list and were able to stick to our budget.
With over 12 months of planning, the trip included Disneyland, Las Vegas, Puerto Vallarta, San Francisco & LA.
The highlight for me was Disneyland, it was simply fantastic and much better than I could of hoped. The detail in every exhibit, the story telling as was otherwise seen in books & movies was true to the original tale, no matter how exotic or how much detail was required to reflect original.
Magic Happens Here's effort to make all above happen was without fanfare and or leaving anything to worry about, and the bonus for us and our friends is that this was completed for well over 30 people, a group that appreciated the effort and had the most amazing holiday. Looking forward to our next holiday with friends.
A trip to Disney was always a dream trip. In 2018 that came true. I got to experience the most memorable holiday of my life with some of my best friends to the most magical place in the world, Disneyland. It is a place I will visit again and again because of the trip that was specifically designed by Magic Happens Here.
I remember everything from my trip, everything from meeting the characters, to going on all the rides and eating the delicious food. There is something to do for everyone from the kids to the elderly. I can't wait for my next trip. The countdown has already begun!!
For anyone who's looking for some help in planning the perfect holiday big or small I cannot recommend Magic Happens Here highly enough - they are one in a million, with a passion for all things Disney. Magic Happens Here will make your trip one to always remember and being Personal Travel Managers, they are always looking for the best ways to help there clients.
As a kid I always dreamed of going to Disneyland and watching The Wonderful World Of Disney on a Sunday night, only fuelled my dream further.
Now that I’ve been, I can’t imagine holidaying anywhere else.
You see it’s not a just a place with cool rides, although I admit I’m a sucker for the Dumbo ride, there’s so much more to see and do, there are fantastic parades, two awesome sound and light shows (Fantasmic & my absolute favourite World Of Colour) then there’s the themed food , I mean who doesn’t want to eat a waffle in the shape of Mickey Mouse.
Plus the shopping… Disney themed merch everywhere you go, from Mickey Mouse Ears to Spirit Jerseys, there’s something for everyone, and then there are the characters, just walking about throughout the park, I mean who doesn’t want to stop and get a hug from Winnie the Pooh in Pooh Corner, or having a Tea Party with Minnie Mouse in Toontown.
As a person who’s grown up in the Gen X era and who’s been to Disneyland multiple times, I can honestly to me Disneyland is “the happiest place on earth”.
I have been lucky enough to visit Disneyland a couple of times now with the last trip at Halloween time being my favourite. Halloween time is all about the pumpkins and fancy dress. The giant pumpkin carved with Mickey’s face is the first thing you see as you walk through the gates and the characters are dressed up in their favourite Halloween costumes. The carved pumpkin faces along Main Street and all through the Downtown Disney district just add to the atmosphere. It's what you can't plan that make’s the happiest memories. For me this happened when we were photobombed by Goofy!
Magic Happens Here were able to plan and organize all the details and their passion for all things Disney made sure we didn't miss a thing. I can't recommend Magic Happens Here highly enough for anyone planning their next Disneyland trip.
Sam suggested I join their LA, Disneyland & Vegas Shopping Tour for my 60th. Disney wasn't on my bucket list but boy was I surprised how much I enjoyed it. It fascinates all ages whether you do the rides or not, there is something for everyone.
The group was well organised, lots of Black Friday shopping was done, bus ride around Hollywood, Universal Studios, Celine Dion concert, Human Nature concert, great restaurants and a really fun group of people. We were also able to visit Disney Family Museum, Warner Bros Studios, Grand Canyon and the Queen Mary at Long Beach. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and can't wait to go again.
