Last week I went to Disneyland with Matt and family so I wanted to share some fun photos from the day with you guys on my blog! Matt’s sister Olivia and her two boys Nixon and Maddox were visiting from Seattle so we took the boys to Disneyland for the first time on Olivia’s birthday. So many celebrations that day!
Of course I had to wear my Minnie ears!
Matt’s family: Carlos, Matt, Olivia, Linda, Maddox & Nixon.
Maddox and uncle Matthew!
Olivia and the stroller baby haha.
Matt and I in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle.
I decided to do a fun little giveaway while I was at Disneyland! I took a photo in front of the castle holding an “eat more rabbit food shirt,” posted it on Instagram (and all of my social media platforms) and said the first person to spot me in the park got the shirt! It was way too fun! It’s crazy how many bunnies were at Disneyland the same day as me! I am going to be doing this all the time, so keep your eyes peeled on Instagram!
Olivia and I were really pumped that we had matching ears, so when we were in line for Autopia I said, “we need a cute car to match our ears! Maybe a pink car!!! Anything but that poop brown one.” Guess what car we got? POOP BROWN. So disappointing! We were laughing so hard when it pulled up around the corner. Of course we Snapchatted the entire Autopia experience haha.
Matt and I on Splash Mountain, PRE splash… Probably the most soaked I’ve ever gotten on that ride!
Matt, me, and Olivia. Bless her heart for taking the front of the log on her birthday. She was DRENCHED afterwards!
Olivia, me, Matt, and Carlos on Indiana Jones!
“Tropical Imports” (next to the Jungle Cruise) is one of my favorite snack spots in Adventureland. You can fuel up with healthy provisions at this snack stand and find fruit in all forms: whole, cut, fresh and dried. Everything from tropical pineapple or mango, pickle spears, trail mix, and veggie snacks.
Since we first got in line for Splash Mountain (an hour or so prior), all Matt wanted was Dole Whip. That’s right, he was craving rabbit food (insert clapping emoji here)! After riding Indiana Jones, we made our way over to the Enchanted Tiki Room for some Dole Whip and Dole Floats!
Dole Whip is one of my FAVORITE sweet treats to eat at Disneyland. It’s also a great option for anyone looking for something vegan and/or gluten free! Dole Whip hasn’t always been vegan, but in 2013 the recipe was reformulated and sodium caseinate was removed from the recipe. Soooooo yes, Dole Whip is vegan. Enjoy!
Maddox (wearing his brother’s Mickey ears) and Matt walking to It’s A Small World.
Maddox and Olivia waiting in line for It’s A Small World.
While the rest of Matt’s family went on Alice In Wonderland, the two of us went on the teacups! Always a favorite place for me to photograph! It’s such a classic! His dimples kill me!!!! S’cute!
Bye bye Disneyland!
I get asked all the time to recommend healthy places to eat at Disneyland. I’ve previously done a post with some of my favorite places to eat and included some of my favorite healthy meals to order at Disneyland which you can find here! I’m also thinking about doing another healthy Disney dining post and a video soon if you guys are interested!
Health & Happiness

Thank you for sharing a slice of your life with us Catherine. looks like you all had a great time. I sort of feel like I know you after reading your posts for over a year now. Isn’t it awesome to have some healthy food choices at an amusement park!? When my family went to Disneyworld a few years ago I was very surprised to see there were so many healthy options. Hats off to Disney! Here in Ohio healthy food options at any sort of public event, food court, or amusement park is like looking for a needle in a haystack. The west coast is way ahead of us. Thank you for opening up your life to us bunnies!

I’ve always wanted to go to Disney land but I haven’t found my way there yet. These pictures have inspired me to make that happen within the next year or so. I need my own set of Minnie Mouse Ears, bad bad.

Catherine, I have been following you for years and love, love, love everything on your blog! I was just wondering if your sunglasses are Karen Walkers? If not, I would love to know the brand and style, thanks so much x

Hi Catherine. Thanks for all the great info on Disneyland! I’ll be going to Disneyland for the first time in September and I actually found your blog a few weeks ago as I was researching healthy food options at Disney! So yes! I would love another post on good food options there!!!!
