T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New “Discover Bourbon” Experience Comes To Disney Springs – Now Through June 17th!

Bourbon Lovers, Rejoice! Disney World has created an event JUST for you – a take on the “Drink Around The World” concept that people love over at Epcot. Restaurants at WDW’s Disney Springs are taking part in this with new and creative food and drink pairings starring – you guessed it, BOURBON!

Disney has this to say about the event, which runs May 1-June 17th: “Kick-start your spring by discovering an all-new bourbon-inspired experience at Disney Springs, where guests ages 21 and older can partake in unique beverages and food pairings. Meander through the many shops and restaurants throughout the area and find your favorites!

Each of these drinks has been carefully paired with a delicious dish, and there’s even a map that shows where to find all of them! Whether you’re a bourbon aficionado, or just enjoy sipping and savoring new drinks, this experience is perfect for an afternoon stroll or a night out with friends.”

Check out more info about the event and the pairings available at each participating restaurant here. Just reading about the food and drinks and seeing the pictures is enough to make me want to change my September trip to RIGHT NOW so I can check out the “Bourbon Trail”

TGIF – and Cheers!

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

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

Spring may technically still be a few weeks away – but it’s getting close, especially at Walt Disney World! Check out the topiaries in bloom at WDW:

These and many more are on display during the annual 2018 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival happening now through May all throughout Epcot.

Does this mean the snow is done? I hope so *fingers crossed!*

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!

RR1

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

RR2

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!
