T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Disney Things I Miss The Most

Time between vacations can seem like an ETERNITY – and this is ESPECIALLY true for time between Disney trips (because Disney World is the best place EVER to take a vacation, obviously!). Since my son was born, we have talked about taking him to WDW when he is younger but we will likely wait until he is about 4 – which is QUITE a ways away at this point, and I gotta say, there are some Disney things I am missing a LOT right now:

Waffle

Mickey shaped foods just taste better. It’s a tested, tried and true fact – and if you don’t believe me, then you might want to check out some Mickey foods for yourself – like maybe a Mickey Waffle?

MeBags

Shopping. Don’t judge me. I like to shop, and I like to shop at Disney World especially – checking out all the stores and seeing what new merchandise they have, and narrowing it down to see what the few things are I will bring home with me – it’s a ritual, and one that I love

MainStreetCastle

This view of Main Street USA – It’s my fave place in the whole world, and I can’t wait to be back here again!

Selfie

Wearing Mickey ears at work or out at the mall or the park is apparently not normal (ugh) – but wearing them at Disney is the norm, and I miss seeing heads upon heads of Mickey everywhere I look

Most of all, I just miss the feeling I get when I am at Disney – that happiness that I have come HOME. I can’t wait to get back!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Mickey Shaped Foods At Home!

One of the best things about visiting Walt Disney World is getting to enjoy all the amazing FOOD they offer at the Parks and Resorts – and while I enjoy trying new things on each trip, there are some that are just classic must-do’s on every visit. The most delicious of them all are the Mickey Shaped Foods – because who wouldn’t want to bite into Mickey’s ear?

If you’ve got that post-Disney withdrawal setting in, or maybe you haven’t been in a while, then maybe you need to make some Mickey shaped foods at home!

This is actually an egg/pancake ring that my husband used to make some awesome chocolate sugar cookies, but it worked great as a cookie cutter too! You can purchase it on amazon

And if you want an actual cookie cutter, Wilton makes a Mickey Cookie Cutter that you can buy at craft stores like Joann’s and Michaels, or places like Target, Walmart, and Party City have them as well

If you’re feeling crafty, you can freehand some Mickey pancakes…

…Or if your pancakes tend to end up looking like blobs (like mine do), then you can always try the Mickey Waffle Maker

I love that I can re-create a little piece of WDW right in my home – and the BEST part is, it’s edible!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy 60th Anniversary To Disneyland Park!

60 8

“To all that come to this happy place: welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future”

This month (July 17th, to be exact!) marks the 60th anniversary of the opening of Disneyland – where Walt stood before the crowd and spoke these words. It’s hard to believe that it’s been 60 years, and in true Disney fashion, this “diamond” celebration is one all-out party!

New fireworks show, new World Of Color show, merchandise, food, giveaways – they are covering all their bases with this celebration! I just wish that Walt himself was alive to see how his vision has flourished and what it has become – a place that so many people love to visit and call their “home away from home”

Check out more ways they’re celebrating this milestone here

Happy Anniversary Disneyland – and here’s to MANY many more years of entertaining, laughter, fun, memories, and magic!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – My All Time Favorite Trip Pics

I love taking a look back at photos from my trips to Disney – each one holds a special memory – and I love remembering the great times I’ve had there! There are some photos that stand out for me, ones that I always come back to and that make me smile no matter what…

MainStreetCastle

This was one of the first photos taken on our honeymoon – I hadn’t been to Disney in 8 years, and I was so excited to finally be back and standing in my favorite spot – at the base of Main Street, in front of the Castle – with the World at my feet (the DISNEY world that is!)

TGIF Characters

While we were on our honeymoon, we dined at Chef Mickey’s – and when Minnie came to greet us, she made a big fuss over my rings and our new marriage, it was so cute!

IceCream

I FINALLY got to try the Gold Rush peanut butter sundae at Ghiradelli in Downtown Disney a few years ago – it was SO GOOD! Sadly, the location is now closed, but I still have the memory of how yummy it was!

1900 6

There are few things better than waking up on Christmas morning at Walt Disney World – which I was lucky enough to do two years ago! We had breakfast at 1900 Park Fare and enjoyed the amazing buffet and characters – here we are posing in front of the gorgeous tree in the lobby of the Grand Floridian!

Spending Christmas in Disney was amazing – and the most amazing thing of all that we did that week was getting to watch the Osbourne Spectacle of Lights be lit at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – they do a little ceremony where Goofy dressed as Santa comes and flips a giant switch and suddenly there’s lights, music, and even snow!

What about you – what are YOUR favorite Disney moments?

T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week – Happy Birthday America!

4 1

Happy 4th of July! How will you be spending this holiday? A picnic, or fireworks perhaps? There are few things more patriotic than celebrating our nation’s birthday, and why not celebrate it in style this year?

4 3

Dress your little one in this adorable swimsuit that’s perfect for the 4th

…Because who DOESN’T heart USA?

Must. Buy. Them. All. These are too cute

4.6

Tons of stores have Disney clothing for kids – Walmart, Target, Kohl’s and more – but if you want something custom made (like these adult polos) – head over to Etsy

Ok, I know the cupcake isn’t clothes – but – doesn’t it look amazing? I would love to be scarfing this down while enjoying some fireworks at Disney World!

TGIF – and Happy Independence Day!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Why I Love Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort

When you’re trying to decide where to stay at Walt Disney World, the choices can become overwhelming – they have so many great Resorts to choose from that it can be tough to narrow it down! Personally, I love Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground – and here’s why:

FW sign

FW Pool

FW site

It’s a beautiful place – large, well-kept campsites, great pools, tons of wooded trails, and maybe best of all it’s quiet and peaceful – it’s a great place to relax and enjoy nature, and best of all you’re in the middle of all the Disney action!

FW movie

The nightly fireside sing sing along and movie is a great family activity – and oh – did I mention it’s hosted by Chip and Dale? I LOVED this as a kid – getting snacks and singing songs and then watching a Disney movie – doesn’t get any better than that!

FW TE 2

Fresh nature air makes me hungry – so I like to head over to Trail’s End – the on-site restaurant that serves up a delicious buffet of items like fried chicken and biscuits (there’s a lot more than that, but those are my favorites and they still make me drool to this day!)

FW Cabin

If you’re not sure about the whole camping/”roughing it” thing – don’t worry, Disney’s got you covered – you can stay in one of their cabins which include electricity, a TV, a bathroom, and a kitchen (utensils/cookware included!) – so you can still stay in nature, but with all the comforts of home

We stayed at Fort Wilderness a bunch of times when I was younger – I loved everything about it, and can’t wait to go back with my son when he’s older. It’s a great Resort choice for those who don’t want to stay in a traditional “hotel” room, plus you can’t beat the scenery!
