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!

TGIF!

Happy 59th Birthday To The Iconic Disneyland Park!

DisneylandOpeningDay

Today marks the 59th anniversary of the opening of Walt’s dream come true – the original Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. If you’ve never been, then I highly recommend you make the trip there at least once in your lifetime. It’s where the magic all started, and where Walt himself gave the opening day speech that included the words “To All who come to this happy place – welcome!”

Check out some Disney facts and history here. Happy 59 years to Disneyland, and here’s to many, MANY more!

One way to kill the LONGGGGG stretches of time between Walt Disney World vacations is to buy more Disney stuff! Seriously though – its awesome to check out the Disney Store’s website and see what new things they have and what Parks Merchandise they offer. I was browsing the other day and saw some AWESOME new stuff – check it out!

BirthdayPin

If you’re lucky enough to celebrate your birthday in Walt Disney World, then you know how much fun and magic awaits you on your special day! But if you’re wanting to make the celebration even more special, there are plenty of ways to do that – with a little help courtesy of that “Disney Magic” of course:

BirthdayBalloons

Why not have a bunch of festive Mickey Birthday Balloons delivered to your room as a fun surprise for the birthday boy or girl?

BirthdayEars

You can always pick up a Birthday Pin to wear while at the Parks – but why not go further and give these birthday Mickey Ears?

BirthdayFlowers

How about a “Fairy Tale” Bouquet for the birthday girl?

Check out all the Birthday Gift options available through Disney Floral and Gifts – and don’t worry if you can’t find one you like – they will work with you to make a custom one of a kind gift for your birthday (or ANY!) celebration!
