T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: Mickey FINALLY Gets His VERY OWN RIDE!

Runawayrailway4

Disney World is going through a TON of changes right now – and a lot of them are taking place over at Hollywood Studios – and I personally can’t wait for the opening of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway next year – where the Mouse and his main squeeze are the stars!

Mickey has never actually had his “own” ride at Disney World – so this is pretty cool news! Check out more details Here

The ride will be located in the building previously used by The Great Movie Ride – and while I am still mourning the loss of that, if they HAVE to replace it with something – I guess a ride about the world’s most famous mouse is a decent replacement!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Rose Gold Mania Hits The Disney Parks

It all started back in August – when these Rose Gold Minnie Ears hit the shelves at various shops throughout the Disney Parks

They were an instant hit – so much so that they couldn’t keep them in stock the first few months! (Don’t worry if you haven’t gotten yours yet – you can buy them on the ShopDisney App)

Disney took this as a good sign – and ran with it:

The millennial pink Magic band was introduced soon thereafter…

…As were these Rose Gold Jerseys

Soon enough, they realized it was time to venture outside of apparel – and go for the big guns…

…and by big guns I mean DESSERT, of course! This is the new Rose Gold Ears Cupcake – available at Sunshine Seasons in Epcot. The cake itself is marble, with a pile of vanilla buttercream on top. The bow and ears are fondant – which means they are edible but probably not the best tasting thing ever – but they sure are adorable!

This one definitely falls into the “too cute to eat (but I will demolish it anyway)” category! I hope they are still around later this year when I head to WDW

What about you – will you be giving into the “Rose Gold” trend for any of these awesome goodies?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Year’s Resolutions – Getting Healthy With RUNDisney

For many, a healthier lifestyle is part of their New Years Resolutions – which makes sense – what better time than after the always food-heavy holidays to get fit? New Year, fresh start, clean slate and all that. It’s harder than it sounds though – eating healthy is hard, and finding time to work out can be a challenge, too! But – luckily – Disney is here for you – with motivation in the form of RunDisney – believe it or not, the Disney Parks host MANY races each year – here are just a few you can start prepping for:

Print

The Disney Princess Half Marathon is held in February, and it is actually a whole weekend full of fun – there’s the ½ marathon, 10k, 5k, and children’s races – and a health and fitness expo, VIP Race Retreat package, and much more!

RunDisney2

There’s also a Star Wars themed half marathon too – held in April, similar structure to the Princess Half Marathon where there’s runs of different lengths and for those of all ages

What better way to follow through on those New Year’s Resolutions than to start training for a RunDisney event? Getting healthy, staying fit, and a visit to Walt Disney World? Sign me up! No ok don’t actually sign me up as I am a terrible runner – but maybe someday ha

If you need some help getting started, check out the RunDisney Training Page and Blog for tips and much more

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 18 Reasons To Visit Walt Disney World In 2018

As a Disney LOVER – I don’t need any excuse/reason to visit Walt Disney World – I would go anytime, anyplace, no questions asked. BUT – in case you need some convincing – check out some of these Top Reasons To Visit Walt Disney World in 2018:

18 reasons1

THE OPENING OF TOY STORY LAND! This is one I am personally pretty pumped about – as my family and I are headed there in September, and my son is a BIG Toy Story fan – he loves his Buzz and Woody, and he will go nuts at seeing them life size at Hollywood Studios!

18 reasons 2

Star Wars Fans will be glad to hear that there will be TONS of new stuff themed after the franchise coming to the Parks in 2018: props from The Last Jedi will be on display at the Star Wars Launch Bay in Hollywood Studios, an immersive virtual reality experience at Disney Springs, and two new destinations have been added to the Star Tours Ride, too!

18 reasons4 18 reasons 3

NEW FOOD – Disney Springs is opening EIGHT new dining locations in 2018 – to include The Edison – a restaurant/bar/lounge created from an old power plant with dazzling “Edison-Era” décor throughout –with a larger than life clock tower greeting you at the entrance

There is SO MUCH to look forward to when you’re planning a Disney World vacation – all the great things you will get to experience, see, eat, do – but in case you needed even more convincing – here’s the full list of the top 18 reasons to head there this year (courtesy of the Disney Parks Blog!)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Fairytales Really DO Come True!

Many of us Disney Loving Gals have always dreamt of getting married at one of the Disney Parks – the Castle as the backdrop, with Mickey to give you away and dance the night away with you…and of course, marrying your own version of Prince Charming!

While most of us realize this is just a dream that will likely never come true, it’s still fun to imagine! And of course, if you have the money (specifically – LOTS of it) – you can make it happen! At Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons they make dreams come true every day!

They even recently created a television series about it, and just last week they had a Holiday themed episode of it:

xmasweddings5
I was of course plastered to the screen the whole time – and couldn’t believe just how amazing everything was! Everything was themed and sparkled down to the tiniest detail – all with that Magical Disney Touch!

Aside from showing the weddings and narrating the stories of the couples – Disney also snuck in plenty of Park footage – showing how beautiful everything looks for the Holidays and basically making me wish I was there right this minute and BRB I will just be booking a trip to Disney World…strategic marketing by Disney isn’t it??

So – moral of the story is – if you want to get married at Disney – save your pennies, and maybe someday you can have a wedding as beautiful as these!

This Spring the series will air showing even more fabulous Disney Weddings – I can’t wait!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Inside Baseline – WDW’s Newest Beer Spot!

BaseLine Tap House opened last month in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios – and I personally was THRILLED to hear the news – a cool spot to grab a craft beer and awesome pretzel – I’m in!

Check it out:

Baseline2

Baseline7

Baseline8

Baseline5

Baseline6

(You may have noticed I included the pretzels twice – that’s not a mistake – that’s just how good they look – I had to give them double props!)

Ok, truth be told I am not much of a beer fan myself – but my husband is – so much so that I am excited for him – to have a place to go and check out beers that he otherwise might not get to try is the perfect vacation activity! Lucky for me – they serve wine too (score!)

Can’t wait to check this place out when we head to Disney World next year!
