T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney’s Live Action Dumbo Takes Flight!

hqdefault

Dumbo is one of those Disney movies I could never watch – it just was too much for me, emotionally. The mocking of Dumbo, the treatment of his mother, Dumbo and his mother and the song – I can’t – there just aren’t enough tissues in the world for it

So when I heard they were re-making it into a live-action film – let’s just say, my feelings were “mixed” at best…

But, after reading up on it – the cast seems really strong, and from what I have read and seen in trailers and such – it might just turn out to be an amazing remake! I will give it a chance…but I will still be bringing my tissues for SURE. The movie hits theaters next month – Will YOU be heading to see it?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – I’m Just Here For The Food

Ok – I know I talk a TON about the FOOD at Walt Disney World – and with GOOD REASON – they have the best food on the planet – seriously. They really go above and beyond in every category when crafting the Disney Guest Experience – but the cuisine is one of the areas in which I take particular pleasure – I love checking out all the new snacks and themed items they have come up with every time I am in WDW

It may only be August, but Disney is already planning for the upcoming season – the BEST one of all, FALL, and they are already creating some amazing items for HALLOWEEN too – FOOD items that is:

Halloweenfood1Halloweenfood2Halloweenfood3Halloweenfood4Halloweenfood5

From a “Not so Poison Apple” cupcake, to a spider web-themed Mickey Cinnamon Roll, to Pumpkin cheesecake, Haunted Mansion Themed “graves” full of dirt and worms, and amazing collectible popcorn buckets – plus many more – your taste buds will no doubt delight in these spooky snacks!

These amazing treats are only available during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (running on select evenings at the Magic Kingdom now through October) – and personally I think the chance to check these out is worth the price of a ticket to the party. But then again, I am partial to snacks – so I would love to know what YOU think – are you headed to the Party to sample some of these treats?
Check out the full listing (complete with drool worthy pictures) Here

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Mouth Watering Treats Await At Aristocrepes

I am always ALWAYS up for a new Disney World snack – the food at WDW is in fact the thing I am MOST excited about for our trip next month – and if you think that’s weird – then you obviously haven’t experienced all that Disney has to offer in the world of cuisine – they serve it ALL – all types and all styles of food, and the snacks are TO DIE FOR – seriously. I just discovered ANOTHER to add to my list – the bubble waffles at Aristocrepes in Disney Springs! Check out these beauties:

The bubble waffles come in strawberry and Salted caramel varieties, and the stand also sells sweet and savory crepes (hence the name!)

The ONE drawback to this spot is that it doesn’t open until 4pm on weekdays (noon on weekends so yay for that!). Check out all the info here

What about you – will you make the trip to Aristocrepes for a bubble waffle? I know I will be doing so next month!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Christopher Robin” Will Bring You Back

r_christopherrobin_header_ddt-16713_7c69a010

Last week Disney’s “Christopher Robin” arrived in theaters, delighting those of all ages – and bringing a new generation of fans to the movies to see a delightfully forgetful Hunny-loving bear and his pals go through misadventures in the Hundred Acre Wood:

The gang’s all here – Winnie the Pooh, Rabbit, Tigger, Eeyore, Kanga and Roo – all the characters I adored as a child have come back to help remind us of our childhoods

Disney said this about the film: “In the heatwarming live action adventure “Disney’s Christopher Robin,” the young boy who loved embarking on adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with a band of spirited and loveable stuffed animals, has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.”

…Sometimes I think we ALL need that reminder, a friend to help us find our way back to our true path. Well done, Pooh. Well done.

Pooh and friends were always a favorite of mine as a kid – so I can’t wait to head to the theater to check this out – What about you? Have you seen it yet?

The concept is “one of a kind all natural fresh chicken tenders” – so the menu will really focus on that, as well as sandwiches and a selection of over 20 house made sauces!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Incredible Tomorrowland Expo” Flies Into The Magic Kingdom!

In honor of Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2 – which hits theaters June 15th – Disney has gone all out – celebrating all things Incredible and Super – hero that is! With their Incredible Tomorrowland Expo on now through the summer at The Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland

The experiences include interacting with the movie’s stars, theming and music, and all things Super Hero! Oh, and then there’s the food:

Inc2Inc1Inc 3

Tomorrowland food vendors have all gotten in on the action too – with Incredible-Themed menu items to celebrate! Pictured above we have Edna Mode’s “No Capes, Just Crêpes” Crêpe Sundae, Mrs. Incredible Pretzel Mask (topped with black salt!), and the Super Stretchy Burger (featuring Mozzarella sticks)

Disney had this to say about this celebration: “Thanks to The Incredibles, the world has once again embraced the Supers! So, in honor of all the good Super Heroes do, Tomorrowland presents the Incredible Tomorrowland Expo—where you’ll have the chance to interact with Mr. Incredible, Frozone, Mrs. Incredible and, for the first time, Edna Mode!”

Sounds like a great time to me! I loved the Incredibles and can’t wait to see the new one – I plan on taking my dad, husband, and son to it for Father’s Day – how about you – will you head to the theaters in a few weeks to see the Incredibles 2?
