About livinginagrownupworld

**LIKES** Movies (especially horror movies), baking, cooking, going out to eat (food in general is a big like of mine), spending time with friends and family, working out, and of course…All things related to Walt Disney World...I have been there 15 times, and I love to read anything I can get my hands on about Disney…needless to say I have a lot of (otherwise useless) Disney information in my head. I enjoyed WDW so much as a child, and when I went back as an adult I found I enjoyed it so much more than I could have ever imagined, hence this blog...and THE PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG IS to convince those out there that Walt Disney World isn’t just for kids/families, its enjoyable for those of all ages, and there is something there for everyone (and I mean EVERYONE)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy 30th To My “Mickey”

30th-1

This week my husband turned 30 – and I got to thinking about our past (almost 11 years together!), and about just how grateful I am for him. He’s an amazing friend, husband, and dad – and I hope he knows just how much he means to me

30th-2

30th-3

30th-4 30th-5

He supports my love of Disney, and has traveled there with me many times – and we have so many fond memories of those trips

30th-6 30th-7

Here’s to millions more memories (Disney and otherwise!)

TGIF – and HAPPY 30th to the Mickey to my Minnie

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Let The Magic Begin” Show Debuts At The Magic Kingdom

Well – Disney has gone and done it – they’ve given us all a reason to get up EARLY. That’s right – even those of you who love to hit snooze or bury yourself under the pillows until lunchtime will NOT be able to resist the brand new “Welcome Show” at the Magic Kingdom! “Let The Magic Begin” Debuted this week – and will be run each morning when the Magic Kingdom opens:

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Accessories For The Apple Lover

Ok – I would like to preface this post by saying that I am a nerd, and am well aware of it, and accept it as reality – so that makes the fact that I am writing about Disney accessories for Apple devices Ok and normal (well, at least kind of anyway!)

I recently switched (back) to having an iphone, and I also just purchased an Apple watch – and I have to say, it’s pretty cool! I like all the things both devices can do, and I also love the fact that there are tons of ways to Disney-fy them:

minniecase

Love this – Minnie is so sassy isn’t she (reminds me of myself!). Check out the collection of official Disney Store phone cases here

minniespeaker

Speaking of Minnie – there are a ton of bluetooth speakers available out there that scream “DISNEY FAN!”

starwarsspeaker

Or if sparkles aren’t your thing, maybe something a bit more manly and Star-wars themed for your listening needs?

watchears

Obviously the first thing I did when setting up my Apple Watch was change the watch face to Mickey (it comes with it built right in!), and I am thinking the second thing I need to do is order this awesome watch case with Mickey ears!

ipadcase

This Ipad case is so cute that it makes me want an Ipad – well – maybe for my birthday, ha!

The point is – there are tons of ways to deck out your favorite devices with a Disney flair, to really personalize them and make them your own! They also make great gifts for the Disney lover in your life

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: Disney Gifts For A Disney Loving Boy (And His Mom!)

I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas – and that you got to enjoy friends, family, food, and FUN! Our Christmas was great – my son had the best time, and of course he received TONS of great presents – many of which had a DISNEY theme to them:

gift3

A super comfy Mickey couch (perfect for enjoying viewings of what else? Disney movies, of course!)

gift2

A super amazing Mickey sleeping bag made by my mother in law – with no pattern (she really is talented!)

gift4

This was a big hit, as you can imagine!

gift1

And a super cool Mickey fire truck, too!

gift5

He wasn’t the only one who got in on the Disney gifts – I was lucky enough to receive this amazing mug I have been drooling over for a while now from my husband – it’s perfect for me as I LOVE mugs, and I LOVE to bake!

What about you – did you get everything on your Disney wish list this year? If not – don’t worry – there’s always next year!

TGIF, and Happy New Year!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Christmas Treats (Disney Style!)

Last week I shared some of the amazing Christmas décor at the WDW Parks, and it got me to thinking – decorating for the holidays is a great tradition that the whole family can participate it, and another HUGE part of the holidays (at least in my house!) is the FOOD – cookies, special meals, hot cocoa by the fire, and so much more! Well – Disney goes all out when it comes to Holiday food too – check out some of the amazing treats you can find at WDW during the Christmas season:

Krispie Treats get some added festive décor

Popcorn buckets shaped like snowman Mickey are a bit pricey, but worth it!

And you can even grab cocoa and cookies (for free!) if you attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

I love the creativity the cast members added to this gelato!

Here’s hoping your holiday prep and fun includes plenty of delicious treats, too!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – MERRY CHRISTMAS!

  xmas16-2

I may not be celebrating Christmas Day at Walt Disney World this year, but I am lucky enough to have done so a few years back – it was the best Christmas of all time – until my son came along, of course!

xmas16-3

Now it’s all about him, and watching him grow and learn to enjoy the holiday – from Santa, to presents, to traditions, to the true meaning of the holiday – I have the honor of getting to teach him all about all of it!

From my little family to you and yours – Merry Christmas – may your day be merry, bright, and full of love and laughter!

TGIF! And here’s hoping Santa is good to you all! Now if you will excuse me – there are some Christmas Cookies calling my name…
