Saying Farewell To The World’s Greatest Genie – Robin Williams

I am sure that by now, you have all heard the shocking news of Robin William’s death which occurred Monday evening. America has had so many laughs thanks to him and his many movie roles and stand up acts, and he will always be remembered for the joy he brought to us all.

Aladdin was one of the first movies I remember seeing in the theater, and I watched it so much I wore out the VHS (remember those?). The main reason this movie was such a hit can really be attributed to Robin William’s amazing portrayal of the Genie – he made us laugh and as we all know, laughter can cure whatever ails you!

Unfortunately, laughter wasn’t enough for Robin, as he had some internal battles that he was dealing with which ultimately lead to his death, you can read more about the demons that plagued the actor here

RIP Robin – your legacy will live on for generations to come, and thanks for making me laugh when I really needed it

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

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

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: Have Some FROZEN Fun This Summer!

Ok, I will admit – I did NOT love the movie Frozen the first time I saw it, and I didn’t understand the hype – the millions of kids singing “let it go”, the mad rush and frenzy for Elsa and Anna costumes, the 300 minute wait at Disney World to greet the Princesses – it all seemed a bit excessive to me. But, I figured – I should give the movie another chance, maybe I am missing something?

I watched it again, and while I can’t say I will be jumping in that long line to greet the stars of the movie, I DID really like it more the second time! I liked it so much that I started seeking out some treats and treasures based on the blockbuster hit…
