But did you know that Disneyland is also controlling us with the music in the parks? In this episode Becca and Jessica are talking about music in Disneyland and how it impacts our experiences. From what music plays in the land, to soundtracks on rides, and yes... how they get us to do certain things based on the music. Plus a hilarious blooper we left in just for all our O-Town Fans...

In this episode, Becca and Jessica discuss the things they have changed their minds about at Disneyland Resort. They cover topics such as taking a midday break, enjoying World of Color, the Tomorrowland Lounge, using Genie Plus, park hopping, the reimagined Toontown, and the benefits of rope dropping. They emphasize that everyone's preferences and experiences may vary, and it's important to find what works best for each individual or family.   Takeaways Taking a midday break can be a beneficial strategy to avoid exhaustion and enjoy Disneyland Resort. World of Color has improved with new options such as the virtual queue and dessert party. Opinions on the Tomorrowland Lounge have changed due to changes in seating and food options. Using Genie Plus is not always necessary and some families have successfully enjoyed the parks without it. Park hopping can be a cost-saving option, but it depends on personal preferences and budget. Toontown has been reimagined and offers new attractions, making it a must-visit area. Rope dropping can be a rewarding experience, even for those who initially thought it was unnecessary. It's important to be open to changing opinions and finding what works best for each individual or family at Disneyland Resort.
