T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Disney Springs” Is Open For Business!

It’s been a few years now since Disney announced they would be transforming Downtown Disney into “Disney Springs” – with plans for a complete overhaul, and the addition of lots of new shopping and dining options, too!

 

Well, piece by piece, it’s all finally coming together – and the results? See for yourself – as the “Town Center” section of the Springs opened just a few weeks ago:

Pretty awesome, right? There are some seriously nice new stores in here – for a list of the new retailers click here, and you can also check out the official Disney Springs website here. I hope to get the chance to check it out soon – and to give my credit card a workout while I’m at it, too!

TGIF – and happy shopping!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 2016 Disney Vacation Must-Do’s

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope you all had a great time ringing in the new year, and that you are looking forward to starting fresh today and having the best year yet!

If you’re planning on heading to Walt Disney World in 2016, then you will definitely want to add these to your list of “Disney Vacation Resolutions” – as they are ALL Must do’s:

Norway   Epcot’s Norway is being expanded to include the new Frozen meet and greet attraction – where your little princesses will get the chance to hobnob with royalty – none other than Anna and Elsa!

Soarin

Soarin’ is getting overhauled – a third theater and new ride experience that takes you “around the world” make this one a must-see

ToyStoryMania

Toy Story Midway Mania will be getting a third track in 2016 – which will help cut down on the (sometimes REALLY LONG) waits, so if you haven’t checked this one out yet, 2016 will be a good time to give it a try

STK

Any steak fans in your family? You’ll definitely want to check out the new STK steakhouse in Downtown Disney that’s opening in Spring of 2016

As part of the largest expansion in its history, Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park will be adding all-new entertainment experiences including a new after-dark spectacular centered around and above Discovery River, new nighttime entertainment including live performers on Discovery Island (pictured) and a new night version of Kilimanjaro Safaris. (Concept art, Walt Disney Imagineering)

Animal Kingdom will be adding a “Rivers of Light” nighttime show, which will be just one of the many changes aimed at turning the park into an “after dark” destination

There are so many amazing changes coming to the Happiest Place On Earth in 2016 – and I don’ know about you, but I can’t wait to experience them all! Here’s hoping I can stick to my Resolutions this year….

TGIF – and HAPPY 2016!!!

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 – Spring Is In Bloom At Epcot!

It is starting to finally feel like spring – no more snow (at least I HOPE not), temperatures slowly starting to creep up, birds chirping…these are all good signs in my book! While Florida may not have the extreme seasons like my Upstate NY home does, they still find ways to celebrate the season of regrowth – and one way is with Disney’s annual International Flower and Garden Festival, where each spring starting in March and running through May, guest can view amazing topiaries, gardening displays, and attend gardening seminars (hosted by your favorite HGTV stars!), plus much more!

Check out what is in store at this year’s festival:

Oh, and aside from the amazing gardening displays, they also have tons of “Outdoor kitchens” – basically food kiosks that are serving up some awesomely fresh and delicious eats – like these drool-worthy desserts (have to give props to the always amazing Disney Tourist Blog for these beautiful photos!)

Overall, if you’re a lover of flowers, gardening, and all things Spring – then you will love the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, as they have something for everyone and it’s a great way to spend a day!

TGIF – and HAPPY SPRING!
