T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Christmas Wish Lists

We may only be partly through November, but I know I for one have already gotten a bunch of Christmas shopping done – I like to plan ahead, and I like making lists, too! So while I plug away at ticking things off my “To Do/To Buy” list, I am also working on making a Wish List. You’re never too old to make a list of things you hope “Santa” will bring you, and since I am a Disney fanatic, of course my Christmas Wish List Is Full of Disney:

     adult-hoodie

Is it slightly ridiculous to wish for a hoodie with ears at 32 years old? Probably. But do I care? NO WAY – just look at how cute this thing is!!!

pursexmas
Ok well – this one is probably a bit unrealistic to wish for, but hey, it’s MY wish list – therefore I can put whatever I want on it!
holidaymug10
With a toddler to look after, plus shopping, baking, entertaining, traveling, wrapping, and MUCH more to do this holiday season – I think I can safely say that I will need MUCH coffee to get me through – and this mug would certainly help put me in that holiday spirit!

?

Ok well, enough about me – let’s talk about the guy I can’t seem to stop shopping for.

My 2 year old is definitely a “Disney addict in training”,

because his wish list this year is pretty heavily Disney-populated too:
microphone
Since he likes to pick up dog toys and pretend they are microphones, I thought this one would be a good choice (less sharp and heavy than the dog toys at least!)
shelves
With more toys does NOT come more space in my house – so any way I can find to store all his stuff is a win for me – plus these have the Mouse himself on them – so it’s a win/win for me and my Mickey-obsessed little man!
pjs
I couldn’t help myself on these – he will look so dang cute!

Hopefully this has inspired you to get going on your own wish list – and your to do list for the holidays! TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: My Top WDW Photo Opp Spot

I LOVE LOVE taking photos – of anything and everything! These days its mostly my son, and my dog, but when I am on vacation I try to capture it ALL – the sights, the people, the fun – needless to say, I usually end up with A LOT of photos to sort through after a trip to Walt Disney World. I take photos everywhere in Disney – on rides, in line for rides, in stores, and in anyplace you can think of basically, but I have to say, there is one spot that is my favorite place to pose for (and take!) pictures:

castleday

Main Street USA is the perfect picture spot – the view of the quaint “street”, storefronts, and Castle in the distance – it doesn’t get much more “Disney” than that. I can’t wait to take my son and get our first family photo in front of the castle someday!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – #FallVibes

Personally – I am already into fall mode – I have decorations up, apples have been picked (and made into applesauce!), and pumpkin coffees and lattes have been obtained from various local baristas. And while many of you may think it’s too early for this, I can assure you – it’s NOT, and guess what – DISNEY AGREES WITH ME!

The Parks are already decked out in their Fall Finery for all to enjoy!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has already started this year, too believe it or not (including exclusive party snacks):

A spectacle of characters parades down Main Street, U.S.A in “Mickey’s Boo-to You Halloween Parade” during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom. The parade is led by the Headless Horseman and includes Disney characters in Halloween regalia and the ghostly inhabitants of The Haunted Mansion. Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a special ticket event and takes place on select nights each fall at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (Ali Nasser, photographer)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Unique Disney Car Decals

Bumper stickers have always been a way to show your political preferences, or to warn people to back off of your back end – but they really are so much more than that! They can showcase your travels, your family, your likes and hobbies, and of COURSE – they can let the world know that a DISNEY LOVER is behind the wheel!

If you’re in the market for a Disney-themed bumper sticker or decal, you could always go with the classic Mickey peeking out
car 3
Or the “WDW” letters that let people know your preferred travel destination (I have this one on my car!)
Car1
You can show exactly how many Disney lovers you have in your family

Car 4….or you can go a bit more eclectic with multiple Disney-themed stickers (I especially love the Haunted Mansion ones!)

?

So, admittedly, the inspiration for this post was a bit selfish – as I just got this new decal and wanted to show it off – I had it custom made, and I seriously love it – it’s simple and yet SO TRUE – because as us hardcore Disney fans know – Disney World really DOES feel like home
As for how to Disney-fy your car – you can buy some auto accessories Online, and they sell plenty more in the Parks. Or you can check out Etsy for places that will customize them for you too!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Foodies Rejoice – Food And Wine Time Is Almost Here!

The characters, the rides, the shows – there’s so much to see and do at Walt Disney World that just thinking about it all makes me tired…and HUNGRY. Luckily, WDW has some truly amazing cuisine – and if you’re a “foodie” then you might want to plan your Disney vacation around the annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival – where you can experience even MORE amazing eats!

Guests can sample tapas-sized tastes of inventive cuisine from more than 30 global marketplaces during the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival Sept. 25-Nov. 16, 2015 at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. The popular fall festival also features wine tastings, culinary demonstrations, mixology seminars, nightly "Eat to the Beat" concerts and a broad range of premium dining events. For the first time in the festival's 20-year-history, global marketplace experiences, expand from the park's World Showcase into Future World. (Matt Stroshane, photographer)

This year the Festival runs from September 14th – November 14th, and in addition to TONS of pop up kiosks featuring cuisine from around the world – places like Belgium, Brazil, South Korea, and MANY more will be represented

Food Wine 1

The idea here is to pair the country’s signature dishes with their best wines and beverages, to really showcase the food AND drink! Check out the full list of kiosks that will be at this year’s festival Here

In addition to the food and drink available for purchase, there will be live concerts, culinary demonstrations, beverage seminars, and newly added this year – the chance to get in on the action with “Mix it, Make It, Celebrate it!” classes (like sushi making and cake decorating to name a few!)

The Food and Wine Festival is really a dream come true for someone like myself – who loves Disney and FOOD – and I can’t wait to check it out next fall when I head to WDW!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Feeling The Disney Birthday Love

IMG_20160815_200535

I celebrated my birthday this week with friends, family, and of course FOOD – my mother in law made me dinner, and a homemade cookie cake (confession – I actually had two cookie cakes, and they were both delicious. I regret nothing). I had a great day – and felt so loved! Was especially feeling the DISNEY love with these amazing gifts:

20160813_082639  20160812_221008

I had been wanting my husband to craft me some kind of coffee mug display for a while now (I have a LOT of mugs – and a lot of them are Disney Mugs– because why not enjoy your morning coffee with a side of Disney?), and he was able to put this together for me – not only is it totally functional, but if you look closely you will see that he drew in tiny Disney characters on the heads of the hooks – how creative is he?

My husband and my BFF collaborated on this year’s gift giving, and she made me this amazing sign to go above the coffee mug display – it combines two of my loves – Disney and caffeine. Genius work on her part

IMG_20160809_132657

Then I got myself a super cute new Mickey and Minnie Alex and Ani bracelet…yep, I bought it for myself and nope I don’t even care that that’s kind of weird – just look at how pretty!

I am so touched to have family and friends who care about me enough to make me Disney gifts – and all in all, it was a great birthday,

and I can’t wait to see what the year ahead brings!

TGIF!
