T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Back To School Cool With Mickey (And Friends!)

Not many kids really countdown to the start of a new school year – and why would they? It signals the end of carefree sunny days spent outside playing, and the start of another year of books, assignments, and routine. There are some ways to get kids excited though – and I personally am a big fan of using a little bribery to make things go smoothly – bribery in Disney form perhaps? Why not outfit your kids with some awesome Disney school supplies that will make going back to school way more fashionable:

SChool Snack

How about an adorable snack box you can fill with treats to tide them over between school and soccer?

School StarWards

Heck, I am not going back to school but even I want this awesome stationary kit featuring the ultimate villian himself – Darth Vader

School Princess

Maybe your little princess needs a royally styled backpack to make going back to school more bearable

SChool Hoodie

I don’t know where you are, but here in Upstate NY the fall mornings can get a bit crisp – so keep them warm with a personalizable hoodie featuring their favorite character

Check out the Disney Store’s full Back to School collection here, and check out your local Wal-Mart/Target/grocery store for plenty of other Disney themed clothes, folders, pens, pencils and much more to get them into that “back to school” spirit!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – FALL IS COMING!

Ok, yes – it’s still August, its still hot and there are still picnics to be had and beaches to visit – but the stores are brimming with fall and Halloween merchandise – and I am as ready for fall as can be! It’s the absolute BEST SEASON OF ALL – apple picking every weekend, pumpkin flavored everything, crisp cool air (aka no more stifling heat yay!) – I love it all!

One thing I look forward to someday being able to do is to visit Walt Disney World in the fall – specifically so I can check out all the awesome décor and also attend Mickeys Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! Check out all that the autumn season brings at WDW:

Plenty of pumpkins, fall colors, treats and more! I hope to someday bring my son to Disney during the fall so we can enjoy everything WDW has to offer during my favorite time of year!

So enjoy the rest of your summer – and if you’re mourning the end of summer, fear not – as the BEST SEASON ever is just around the corner!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy Birthday To Me!

Today I celebrate 30 years on this fine earth – and 30 years as a Disney lover too! How will I be celebrating? Well, with a pedicure, and some dinner prepared by my man (because not only should one not have to cook on their birthday, but I am also almost 8 months pregnant – all the more reason that a foot rub and a hot meal served to me are highly appreciated luxuries these days!)

So what’s on my birthday wish list this year? Well, it may not shock you, but its chock full’o’Disney:

 TGIF Bday2

Disney Alex and Ani is pretty high on the list – they have some great new styles available now that I think would look great dangling from my wrist

TGIF Bday1

One can never have enough Disney Kitchen items, don’t you think? I love these Mickey’s Diner items – aren’t they great? Check out all the Disney Store’s Kitchenware section for more!

TGIF Bday3

I had a shirt JUST like this when I was a kid – it was neon pink but had the same Mickey and Minnie graphic on it – I guess the 80’s are back in? Check it out here

TGIF Bday4

And just because they are adorable – I sure wouldn’t mind getting a nice cross body Vera Bradly Disney bag

Even if I don’t get any of the items off my Disney wish list, I know I will have a great birthday full of friends, fun, food, and relaxation – and really, what is better than that?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Custom Disney On Etsy!

In case you haven’t ever gotten sucked into Etsy.com – let me break it down for you – it is a place where you can find basically any and every craft/hand-made custom item you could ever even imagine. Seriously – from jewelry and bags to clothes and home furnishings – if you want something unique and one of a kind, you MUST check it out.

Etsy has a LOT of Disney stuff available through the various shops they host – it’s a really great way to get something unique to wear or bring to the Parks. Check out these amazing items:

    Etsy Necklace

My husband actually got me this necklace for Christmas last year – and I LOVE it – I wear it all the time! Check out AOS Design for this and other great Disney baubles

EtsyShirts

This is a great idea for your Disney trip – not only will the shirts look great in pictures, but it makes it easier to keep everyone together too! Check out Creations By Jeanne for these awesome custom shirts

Etsy Bag

I have to say – I seriously LOVE this idea – to have your kids bring a tote bag for autographs is practical (they can carry their own stuff this way!) and unique! Available on Two Boys And A Tee

EtsyInvites

Ok so let’s say you’re planning your child’s Disney themed birthday party (or maybe it’s your own birthday party? No judgment) Find amazing invites, décor and more on Gardellas Global

Etsy Ears

Ok I must admit – these are my favorite! I actually follow Brooke on Instagram, and when I saw these amazing creations of hers, I was in awe! These are custom Mickey ears – available in a TON of amazing patterns and fabrics – the Haunted Mansion ones pictured are my fave but she has TONS more – check her out Here!

Can’t find exactly what you want? Most shop owners will create custom pieces for you – so don’t be afraid to ask!

Disney World To Open A Haunted Mansion Themed Store This Fall

HM BW

I don’t know about you, but I just love Disney’s Haunted Mansion Ride – everything about it is amazing, from the doom buggies to the ghosts that follow you home – it’s a classic that I make sure to ride MANY times during each WDW trip!

Luckily for me and all you other Haunted Mansion fans out there – Disney has realized just how many of us there are, and will be opening a new Haunted Mansion themed souvenir store this fall! It will be where the old Yankee Trader store was (Yankee Trader has already closed for renovations!) – which is a perfect location as it’s right next to the Haunted Mansion ride

HM kitchen

Here’s a Sneak Peak of some of the new merchandise this shop will be offering – just in time for Halloween! I love the apron, and the ice cube trays, and – well – everything!

Stay tuned to the Disney Parks Blog for more info on the store opening and merchandise
