T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Wardrobe – DONE!

My family is headed to Walt Disney World in September – and even though that may be (several) months away, I have already begun preparing. Lists galore – packing list, “To-Do” list, souvenir wish list, and of course – a pre-trip shopping list. There are practical things on there – like sunscreen, snacks, and antibacterial wipes – and then there are the slightly LESS practical items – like “new Disney wardrobes for everyone”. Would I love to buy cute new outfits (some even matching) for us to all wear for our trip? Of course. But am I made of money/am I insane? A big NO to both of those – I have enough to plan for/think about/deal with when it comes to vacation planning to be attempting to also shop like crazy for new clothes – and as much as I want to – it’s just not practical for me and my family

So, in lieu of that, I decided I better see what we have to wear for Disney! And the good news is – we have A LOT:

Wardrobe3

My husband has a few – my fave is the Star Wars “Galaxy’s Best Dad” one – makes me laugh

Wardrobe2

My son of course has a TON – as he loves Disney, Star Wars and basically anything animated

Wardrobe1

….And of course, I have the most – including some Minnie Mouse printed LuLaRoe leggings

So – as it turns out, I can cross “new Disney wardrobes” off my shopping list – as we already have TONS of great stuff to wear on our trip in September! Will we match/coordinate? Probably not – but does that even really matter? Probably not ha

Side note –those of you who have the money/time/desire to buy all new clothes and matching outfits and all that for your Disney vacation – good for you and more power to you! I in NO WAY judge you AT ALL – I personally just have to (unfortunately) draw the line somewhere – and I think since we already have a ton of cute stuff, we will just be able to wear what we have, and still be able to show off our Disney Love with every outfit!

TGIF!

Bourbon Lovers, Rejoice! Disney World has created an event JUST for you – a take on the “Drink Around The World” concept that people love over at Epcot. Restaurants at WDW’s Disney Springs are taking part in this with new and creative food and drink pairings starring – you guessed it, BOURBON!

Meander through the many shops and restaurants throughout the area and find your favorites!

Each of these drinks has been carefully paired with a delicious dish, and there’s even a map that shows where to find all of them! Whether you’re a bourbon aficionado, or just enjoy sipping and savoring new drinks, this experience is perfect for an afternoon stroll or a night out with friends.”

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 29 Years Of Movies And Fun!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been taking guest on a journey through the movies for over 29 years – in fact, on May 1st the Park celebrated it’s 29th anniversary!

MGM1

“The World you have entered was created by The Walt Disney Company and is dedicated to Hollywood—not a place on a map, but a state of mind that exists wherever people dream and wonder and imagine, a place where illusion and reality are fused by technological magic. We welcome you to a Hollywood that never was—and always will be.” – Michael Eisner said this during his speech on the day the park opened – back then it was called “Disney’s MGM Studios” – and some of us old timers (like myself will probably always call it that)

In honor of the Park celebrating 29 years, here’s a look back on some of my favorite Hollywood Studios moments:

Here’s to many, many more memories – especially as Hollywood Studios undergoes some MAJOR construction to bring some awesome new things this year and next – like Toy Story Land and Star Wars Land

There’s a new Sheriff in town! Standing at nearly 20 feet tall, Woody is posed right at the entrance to welcome you to Toy Story Land! Woody will be right in front of another popular Toy Story character’s attraction – The Slinky Dog Dash – which has been under construction since last fall

I can’t wait until June 30th to see pictures and videos of the finished product – and then to actually visit in person in September!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The #PurpleWall Gets A Makeover

I LOVE TAKING SELFIES – and I don’t care who knows it. Is it a silly thing to do? Yes. Do I care – NOPE not even a little. I never pass up a good opportunity for a selfie – and there are PLENTY of those opportunities at WDW!

I recently wrote about some of the best places to take selfies at Walt Disney World – and I am just dying to try them all out when I head there with my family this fall.

Recently, one of the most popular WDW selfie spots – the #PurpleWall at the entrance to Tomorrowland – got a facelift that has been creating some serious buzz in the Disney World:

Purple3

Here’s what it used to look like before it’s re-do

Purple1

And here’s the new (and improved) #PurpleWall

Purple6

Oh and don’t worry – there is still a plain purple section for all you #PurpleWall purists out there

Purple2

…Same though. I’m coming for you this fall, #PurpleWall

Oh and for you #PurpleWall fans – you can even get a custom Magic Band to declare your Purple Wall love to the world

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Top Travel Accessories – Adult Edition!

Last week I talked about my top picks for Toddler Travel Accessories – and this week I figured now that I have my little guy covered, why not pick out some great stuff that I can use, too? Here are my top travel accessory picks for adults:

AdultTravel1

A neck pillow is a must when traveling on an airplane, but this one really takes it to the next level – the hood would be perfect for blocking out all the light and some of the noise, too!

AdultTravel2

Counter space is at a premium in most hotels – so keep all your little bottles and toiletries organized in this carrier which conveniently hangs right on the door/shower rod/closet rod

AdultTravel3

Ok and stay with me on this one – I know it’s SUPER nerdy looking – but this Travel wallet straps right to you and can help keep the things most important to you (passports/phone/credit cards/ID’s) close by and safe

Then there’s this amazing new Mickey Phone Kickstand I just got – I know it’s not really a “travel” accessory but it gets an honorable mention as it will certainly get used a lot during my trip (yes – there will be a LOT of selfies taken during this vacation!)

These will all come in SUPER handy when my family and I head to Disney World this fall

TGIF!
