T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Spotlight On “Be Our Guest”

As you probably already know, last weekend the new Beauty And The Beast Live Action movie was released in theaters. I was lucky enough to get to go see it, and I loved it – the characters were amazing – especially the beast! The movie will bring about a whole new generation of Beauty And The Beast lovers – and Disney World is more than prepared for that! When they re-designed Fantasyland, they included a restaurant themed after the movie called “Be Our Guest” – and it is basically like walking into the movie! Check it out:

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a French-themed menu, featuring items like Croque Monsieur (grilled ham and cheese sandwich), Tuna Nicoise Salad, and of course – “The Grey Stuff” is offered on the dessert menu (try your hand at making your own Grey Stuff At Home!)

While it is labeled as a “Quick Service” Restaurant, I would recommend making a reservation if you’re planning to head here – as the lines can be insane, and it will only get busier with the release of the new movie! I can’t wait to try it out next time I’m in WDW!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Beauty And The Beast’s Live Action Remake Hits Theaters TODAY!

BB5

When Disney released the animated classic Beauty And The Beast back in 1991 (almost 26 years ago now!), they probably had no idea just how much of a true “classic” it would become. It made millions at the box office, and even won two Oscars (and was the first ever animated film to be nominated for Best Picture, too!)

I remember watching the VHS of this over and over and over (and listening to the soundtrack cassette tape over and over too!) – so the fact that Disney’s live action remake is releasing into theaters today has me more than just a little excited! Check out what’s in store for you when you head to the theater to see it:

What about you – are you headed to the theater this weekend to see it?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – So Grateful For Family And Friends This (And Every!) Week

Not gonna lie – it’s been a ROUGH WEEK here. Death in the family, putting our house on the market so TONS of cleaning and organizing, and a MAJOR POWER OUTAGE affecting over 150,000 homes in my area have really just made me extra grateful that it’s FRIDAY. Even if the weekend means more cold house and searching for a generator, at least I will be with my family.

It’s not all doom and gloom though – last weekend we had friends in town, and our kids had so much fun playing together:


I like to look back on these pictures when I am having a tough time (needless to say, I have been looking at them a LOT the past few days, and will probably do so even more tonight when I go home and the power is probably STILL out)

Sometimes it’s the little things that get us through – like a smile, hug, or a kiss from a loved one

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Has Something For Everyone – Even Our Four Legged Pals!

Apparently 2/23 was “National Dog Biscuit Appreciation Day” – which honestly sounds like a pretty strange holiday to me, but – whatever – our dogs deserve some recognition once in a while, right? They are always there to give a kiss and a tail wag when we get home at the end of a long day, and they always lend a sympathetic ear to our problems, too!

My big guy Walter (named after Mr. Disney of course!) is the best – and he deserves the best – whether it’s Dog Appreciation Day, Biscuit Day, or any day

If you’re looking to show your dog how much they mean to you (while showing off your DISNEY loving side too), then check out some of these awesome Disney themed pet accessories:

They may not be able to come to WDW with you to enjoy Mickey Waffles and Mickey Ice Cream bars, but they CAN have their own (squeakier!) versions

Walter would seriously love this – what a great place to flop down after a long day of napping, barking, slurping water, and chasing squirrels. Check out these and other available dog accessories here

And if you really want to do something special for your pup then check out these homemade dog biscuit recipes

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 11 Years Of Love, Laughter, And Fun

Tomorrow is mine and my husband’s “date-iversary”, and even though we are married now we still like to celebrate our original anniversary – the day when it all began! It’s hard to believe it’s been 11 years – we have had some really great times together!

…And is it really any surprise that many of those great times have happened at the Happiest Place On Earth? Disney World holds some great memories for us – and we can’t wait to head back with our son and show him what it’s all about

Here’s to many, many more years of “dating” and all the fun that comes with it!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Rivers Of Light” Debuts TODAY At Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Disney is always changing things up, trying new things and introducing new experiences to help keep the guest experience magical and fresh and exciting!

So – I know the question I had after checking out these pics was “So…what IS it, exactly then?” – and essentially it’s a show that combines water, sounds, light effects and imagery to show us how beautiful nature really is. It’s set at sundown, so that as the sun sets the lights really come to life!

I can’t wait to check it out – how about you?
