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!

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

Only 64 more days until the GRAND opening of the highly anticipated Toy Story Land at Disney’s Hollywood Studios – June 30th will be here before we know it!

The construction is coming along – and this week one REALLY important piece arrived:

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:

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

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

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 – Disney Easter Activities For The Whole Family!

Last week I talked about some Disney Easter Basket Stuffers that would be perfect any and all of the Disney Lovers in your life – and today I wanted to kind of continue the Easter fun – with some Disney Easter Activities:

Easter bark

In my opinion, the best activities are the edible ones – and this super cute Springtime Mickey Bark is an easy, delicious treat to throw together and bring to your family’s Easter Brunch

Easter Page

A fun one for the kids is this Disney Easter Activity Page – this and some crayons will keep the little ones busy and occupied while you hide the Easter Eggs and Baskets!

Easter Mickey Egg

Speaking of eggs…why not decorate yours like everyone’s favorite Mouse?

Check out even more family friendly fun Easter Disney activities here

TGIF – and Happy Easter!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Top (Disney!) Easter Basket Ideas

Ok first of all – I just want to go on record as saying – I don’t know when Easter became like second Christmas – but I am NOT on board with it. I see it all over social media – people who spend tons of money on putting together extravagant Easter baskets for their kids/grandkids/nieces/nephews – and it’s just nuts.

I googled “infant Easter Basket ideas” (as I have a BRAND NEW niece just born this week – ah! So exciting!) and while obviously she can’t do anything with toys yet, I wanted to put together a little something of an Easter basket for her “first Easter” – and the ideas that the internet showed me were literally the most ridiculous things ever. Toys upon toys stacked together with outfits, stuffed animals – all together in these GIANT Baskets – which were really more like bins with handles at that point – and I just wondered – when did this become what Easter is about?

Personally – I am going to stick with a small basket with a few things in it – nothing huge or fancy or expensive, and since my son is only 3, he won’t know the difference or care that his basket didn’t cost $120 and hours to assemble

Ok – now that I have successfully gotten THAT rant out – time to focus on the task at hand – filling the Easter basket! Of course, a Disney theme is always a good option…

Easter181

What is more “Easter” than Mickey dressed as the Easter Bunny?

Easter182

I just about died when I saw this online – and I came really close to ordering one for myself – my inner 5 year old was itching to click “Add To Cart” – as I just cannot imagine a cuter toy for a little girl’s Easter basket then an Ariel Voice Recording Necklace. Who knows – maybe the Easter Bunny will bring ME one!

Easter183

Bubbles are the perfect item for almost any age – as they are fun, cheap, and a reminder that Spring is coming! This Mickey Bubble Wand is amazing – it even lights up!

It’s not just the Disney Store who offers great Easter ideas – your local big box store has tons of (budget friendly!) Easter basket items, too!

Easter184

Saw this Minnie pail when I was there the other day – there was also a Mickey of course, as well as assorted plainer buckets with Mickey/Minnie/Frozen characters on them – they would be great to use at the beach in the summer! In addition to Disney buckets/pails, they had tons of other little themed items – eggs, candy filled eggs, bubbles, small toys, and much more (they really had an insane amount of stuff – worth checking out, for sure!)

While I don’t love how big Easter seems to have become over the years, I do enjoy the idea of putting together a basket for my son and niece, and am excited to get to see them enjoy the fun things I put in it! What about you – what do YOU like to put in your kid’s Easter baskets?

Stay tuned right here next week – when I will showcase some fun and easy Easter activities for the whole family!
