T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Run For Fun At Disney!

   RunDisney-730x1024

There are TONS of fun activities to do at Walt Disney World and Disneyland – so many in fact that there really is something for everyone – including those athletes out there! Disney sponsors several annual running events that range in length from 10k up to half and full marathons. Not sure you can do such a long distance? Fear not – as most of the events also have 5k races included in the lineup too!

Alex And Ani Disney Styles Are Fashionable And Fun For All Disney Lovers!

alex-and-ani3

For those of you who haven’t heard of Alex and Ani, they are a jewelry company with amazing designs and Made In America products – and they are currently THE HOT THING – they look great stacked together and you definitely can’t have just one (brilliant marketing on their part, don’t you think?)

They have tons of amazing designs available online through their website, and not only are they Made In America but there are a bunch of styles whose profits benefit various charities (a bracelet that supports homeless pets? Yes please!). I love spending time browsing their selections – but I have to admit, there is really only one collection that I am interested in – and it’s not available through their website…

And that would be the Alex and Ani Disney collection of course – how beautiful are these? They come in several designs – Mickey, Minnie, Castle (both Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella designs), Cinderella, and birthstone selections – among others – are available at the Disney Parks as well as through the Disney Store website. I learned of these via a friend’s Instagram while I was at WDW – which is lucky, as I was able to stalk all the stores in the Parks for the designs I wanted!

I snatched up a Minnie first, and actually couldn’t find the Castle anywhere in the Parks – but was able to order it from the Disney Store (luckily!). Check out all the amazing styles here. Hmm, now I just need to figure out which one to get next…decisions, decisions…

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Cuddly Stuffed Friends!

I don’t know about you – but when I was a kid, one of my favorite toys was my stuffed animals – I had a pile on my bed, and they were my companions, audience, tea party guests, game opponents…and the list goes on. That love of cuddly stuffed toys has followed me into adulthood – and when I go to Disney, I have to restrain myself from buying all of them…

TGIFDuffy   

Me and Duffy – I actually do have one of these guys (and a mini one too!) at home – I love the story about Minnie sewing Duffy for Mickey and Duffy going on all of Mickey’s adventures with him!

TGIFMickeyPlush

Everyone needs at least one Mickey to hug – this classic one is adorable!

It’s hard to say who looks more pathetically gloomy – my husband or Eeyore

TGIFNerdMinnie

I love this little Minnie with glasses – I totally would have bought this when I was a kid!

TGIFHugsie

…he really does smell like strawberries – isn’t that something?

Stuffed animals are great for those of all ages – from infant to toddler to child, to teens and adults too! Disney has them all, in all sizes, and they are all adorable and cuddly! Hmm – maybe next trip I should bring an empty suitcase so I can purchase a few new furry friends…

I have some GREAT news from the folks at the Disney Parks Blog –the new line of Vera Bradley Disney bags will be available online starting 10/21/13!! (previously it had recently debuted for sale at the Disney Parks, but this online unveiling means everyone can have access to these great new styles!)

MeBags

Dining In Disneyland Just Became Easier – Thanks To Online Dining Reservations!

Waffle

Some exciting news for Disneyland lovers – as of 10/3/13, you can now book your Dining reservations online up to 60 days before your trip

Previously, there was an email address used for Disneyland dining reservations, and this will no longer be used as of 10/3/2013 as its being replaced by the (better and more efficient!) online system. Guests can still call to make reservations if they have questions (or if they would prefer not to use the online system)

This new system includes dining reservations for restaurants in both the Disneyland and California Adventure Parks, and Downtown Disney and Disneyland Resort Hotel restaurants as well (A credit card will be required when making reservations for table service dining). I think this is a great step forward for Disneyland, and I believe it will help control the flow of diners in the Disneyland restaurants, and will also help ensure you are getting the meals you want while on vacation!

I highly recommend you utilize this system when planning your next Disneyland trip, it’s easy, fast, and a great way to help you organize your days in Disney!
