In a promotion entitled "What will you celebrate?" every guest gets in free to a Disney park on their birthday.
The offer is valid on the guest's birthday in 2009 and can be used to gain free admission to one Disney park at Disneyland or Walt Disney World. Valid identification and proof of birthdate are required.
Guests with annual passports can choose from a single day park ticket good for one year, a four attraction Fastpass for a party of four or a voucher for merchandise equal to the value of a one day park admission good only on their birthday.
So be sure to mark your calendars so you can cash in on this great offer to one of my favorite places on Earth! You can get more details and submit your birthday to get a reminder when your birthday is approaching next year.
Sunday, 21 Sep 2008 | Friends, Restaurants
Last Sunday I went with my friend Anna to Sherman Oaks so we could see her new granddaughter Hannah for the first time. Hannah was born at 10:31 am on September 12, 2008. She was 6 pounds, 6 ounces at birth. I took these pictures of Hannah and her proud parents when she was just 2 days old.
It was the first time meeting Hannah's parents, Christine and Neil. I had heard a lot about them from Anna and it was pleasure getting to know them and their newborn baby girl. Hannah was so cute. It's only been a week since I met her, but I miss her. I look forward to seeing her in the future as she grows up. :)
While Anna and I were in Sherman Oaks, we stopped at a Gelson's Market. I really enjoyed looking at all the yummy foods there. Their chicken looked so fresh and tasty. I wanted to take some home, but didn't have an ice chest to keep it cool.
On the way home, we stopped for dinner at Earthen Restaurant in Hacienda Heights. We order a bowl of beef noodle soup, green onion pancakes and steamed pork dumplings. It was all delicious and such a bargain as well. We also bought goodies at RJ Patisserie to take home and enjoy later. Anna really liked both places and said she would bring her sisters there someday.
Toni and I met our friends Christy and Cheng for lunch on Saturday. We had Korean styled Sweet & Sour Beef and Chicken with sticky rice for lunch at Peking Gourmet in Garden Grove. We love going to the Garden Grove's Korean District to eat and to buy food at Arirang Market. Of course, we went to the Korean market after lunch to stock up on Korean snacks! ;)
Then we went to Joe's Italian Ice to get an ice for dessert. Toni had the blood orange flavor and I had watermelon. The watermelon ice comes complete with watermelon seeds! Joe's Italian Ices are very refreshing and fresh tasting. Thanks Christy for a great recommendation. :)
From there, we said goodbye to Christy and Cheng and left for the Honda Center to watch the 2008 Tour of Gymnastic Champions. It was so cool to see Olympic Gold Medalists Nastia Liukin and Shawn Johnson in person. The Olympic Bronze Medal winning men's team was on hand as well. It was a fun time for us.<< August 2008 | Main | October 2008 >>
