Dining Week, an annual event in which participating restaurants have a set special offer, can make Copenhagen’s diverse food scene more accessible. Restaurant owners hope for long and short-term benefits of attracting customers through the promotion. During the week-long event, which runs until February 17th, restaurateurs will welcome many new guests in what otherwise would be one of the quietest weeks of the year. The hope for business owners is for guests to return during the year and pay regular prices. But does the special offer give new diners an unrealistic picture of value when eating out? "The concept is that all of the participating restaurants serve a three-course menu, including a bottle of mineral water, for 215 kroner plus booking fee per person,” Nusha Riis Hassani, marketing manager with Dining Week, explained in a written comment to The Local.

I was certainly excited to visit the Disneyland Resort during the Christmas holiday season, but I was also nervous. I’m new to the world of Disney and even longtime park experts sometimes avoid the days leading up to Christmas. I couldn’t resist though, earlier in the year I visited Disneyland for the first time and fell in love. It was a magical experience, one that I desperately wanted to enjoy again. So, when I found myself in Southern California just a few days before Christmas, I planned a fun-filled two days exploring Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. Today I want to share more of what my experience was like (the full review is here) and why Christmas is a time to enjoy being in the parks and why you shouldn’t avoid visiting the Happiest Place on Earth during this most festive time of year. Very Manageable I was in the Anaheim area in the first place because I was on a cruise that ended in Los Angeles. As such, I really didn’t have any … [Read more...] about A Few Reasons NOT to Avoid Disneyland at Christmas

Planning a Christmastime trip to Disneyland can be a little daunting for anyone, especially for someone like me who is new to all things Disney. After an incredible, albeit brief, experience in the Happiest Place on Earth earlier in the year, I was excited to experience the park during the December holiday season. After a lot of research, I knew that Disneyland takes Christmas very seriously and in addition to all of the normal attractions, I couldn’t wait to enjoy the special events and foods available for just a few weeks every year. A couple of months ago I wrote this post about how I was planning my 2-day trip the weekend before Christmas and now I want to share how everything went, what I thought about the experience and whether or not Christmas is a great time to visit, or to be avoided. Timing and Where to Stay I was in the Anaheim area in the first place because I was on a cruise that ended in Los Angeles. As such, I really didn’t have any flexibility with timing … [Read more...] about A Disneyland Christmas – Tips and Lessons From My Holiday Experience

Will Gray: The ones that distract them from their phones as much as possible! Last summer we took our 16-year-old twins on a self-drive camping trip in British Columbia. Yes, camping. Downsides: it didn’t help Ellie’s bear phobia; Joe had limited access to BBC Sport. Upsides: it was fantastic! We set up camp together. We cooked together. We talked. We had a laugh. We hiked spectacular trails high into the Canadian Rockies and we kayaked with orcas in Johnstone Strait. We relaxed together; played cards and occasionally freaked out at mosquitoes. And it worked because we sandwiched it between days in Vancouver for a dose of cool restaurants, city life and Wi-Fi. Is Walt Disney World hellish in summer?
