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…

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!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Fireworks That Fascinate

Happy (slightly belated) 4th Of July to one and all! I hope you all were able to relax, enjoy a bit of time off, maybe have a BBQ, and take some time to reflect on how amazing our country is!

One of the “Traditional” things to do on Independence Day is to check out some fireworks – and that is one thing that Disney does not only on this holiday, but on every day!

TGIF FIreworks 1 Like this nightly “Wishes” display at the Magic Kingdom

TGIF Fireworks2Or this spectacular “Illuminations – Reflections Of Earth” show at Epcot that celebrates all that is great about our planet

TGIF Fireworks WOCOr this amazing laser light spectacular at Disneyland’s California Adventure Park – which doesn’t technically have any fireworks – but it does have some pretty cool effects, and you can even buy awesome Mickey ear hats that light up in time to the show’s music!

While the local fireworks shows we are checking out this 4th of July may not be quite as showy as these Disney versions, they are still fun and a great way to celebrate our country and all that makes it great!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Mouse’s Leading Lady

Minnie has been making us smile for years – and I have to admit she is a personal favorite of mine, and whenever I go to WDW, I make it a point to seek her out and have my picture taken with her. Her dress, her shoes, her bow, her polka dots – she is a fashion icon!

TGIF Minnie EpcotIn Epcot, you can meet up with Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Donald, and Goofy at the Epcot Character Spot!

TGIF Minnie ChefMickeysThe fab five also make a daily appearance for breakfast and dinner over at the family-friendly Chef Mickey’s restaurant – the food is served buffet-style and you can enjoy the eats while the characters make the rounds for pictures, hugs, and autographs!

TGIF Minnie CaliMinnie hosts a character buffet breakfast at the Plaza Inn in Disneyland – she even dons a cute apron for the occasion!

TGIF Minnie OldAnd what tribute to Minnie Mouse would be complete without an adorable old school flashback shot (circa late 80′s)? Note my mom’s perm – gotta love the big hair!

 

Hope these made you smile!
