DISNEYLAND HAWKS BULBS AND TEA PARTIES

SHARE DISNEYLAND HAWKS BULBS AND TEA PARTIES

A piece of the Berlin Wall is one thing, but a used light bulb from Disneyland? Yep, it's the latest megawatt promotional campaign to get people flocking to the Magic Kingdom's Main Street Electrical Parade before they pull the plug Oct. 15. So, here's the deal. Rather than toss all those brownout bulbs, Disneyland is packaging them as keepsakes, priced at $10 and sold by mail order only, with part of the proceeds going to local charities. For more information, call (714) 781-4565.

If the bulb deal leaves you feeling flat, try a spoonful of sugar in your tea - served by that ever-cheerful Mary Poppins, who's hosting tea parties now at the resort. It sounds way-cool, perfect for those mom-daughter bonding sessions, with all kinds of teatime goodies, including Mickey Mouse waffles, scones, smoked salmon with caviar, pastries and tuna salad finger sandwiches. The Practically Perfect The party, served in a Victorian setting, with live entertainment and souvenir photos, is $17.50 for adults and $9.50 for children 4-12. Seatings are Saturdays at 10 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. The Tea Room is located at the Disneyland Pacific Hotel, 1717 West St., Anaheim. For reservations, call (714) 956-6755.
