The-Diamond-of-The-Day

Last week, we hosted Thomas Lyons and his family, from Manhattan Beach, Calif. – winner of one of the prizes being awarded during Disneyland Diamond Days

Join Thomas, his wife Faith and daughters Grace and Phoebe as they enjoy their last Disneyland Resort visit before Grace and Phoebe head to college this semester. The visit was made extra special with their prize package, which included a three-day, two-night Disneyland Resort vacation and an exclusive tour of Disney California Adventure park before the park opened for the day, capped off with a special ride in the Red Car Trolley with Mickey Mouse!
