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:


Mickey and Minnie greet the crowds as they enter Epcot


A gorgeous topiary of Disney’s most popular “Frozen” sisters


Everyone’s favorite Monsters head to college in this awesome display


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!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Cinderella-Inspired Attire For You And Your Little Princess

 Cinderella animated

Cinderella is hands down my favorite Disney movie ever – I watched it so many times as a kid I think I wore out the tape (remember those? VCR’s, VHS tapes, rewinding…), and now even though I have upgraded to the DVD version, my love for the characters and story haven’t faded with age.

CInderella 2015

The newly released live action Cinderella movie has been pretty popular at the box office – and of course with the release of any new Disney movie comes new merchandise. Check out some of the items from the new Cinderella clothing line:


Wouldn’t your little princess look perfectly adorable in this ball-inspired dress?


True statement.


I love the whimsy of this one – perfect for a Spring wedding


No Cinderella collection would be complete without glittery glass slippers

The clothing is available exclusively at Kohl’s – check out the whole line here

How about you – are you planning on checking out the new Cinderella movie? I personally can’t wait to see Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Adios Sorcerer Hat!

Disney World is an ever changing, ever evolving place – they are constantly introducing new rides, attractions, food, restaurants, characters, merchandise…the list goes on. Needless to say, I don’t think anyone can accuse them of not being innovative. Changes are being made every day all around the Disney Parks, and one of those changes I am personally pretty excited about is the removal of the Sorcerer’s Hat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. In case you aren’t familiar with the hat, it’s that HUGE thing with Mickey ears you can see the minute you enter the park:


It appeared in 2001 as a part of the “100 years of magic” celebration, and it originally housed interactive kiosks where you could learn about the career and life of the man himself – Walt Disney. Once the celebration ended in 2003, the kiosks were removed and the hat served as a special events venue as well as a pin trading/purchase site. Disney announced it would be removed in October 2014 as part of a Hollywood Studios makeover. Here’s a look at how the de-construction is going:

No word on what will replace it, but I am sure it will be something awesome (stay tuned for more news on that right here!). And in the meantime, enjoy the awesome view of the Great Movie Ride that is now unobstructed! Yay!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week Post – Check out these “Charm”ing New Disney Pandora Charms!

Who doesn’t love a little Disney bling? I know I do – I have a few Disney Alex and Ani bracelets, and another super popular Disney collection is their new Pandora Disney Charms which debuted late last year. There are tons of great styles, check out some of my faves:

 Pandora3 Pandora1 Pandora2

Personally I love the sparkly ones – I just know they would look great added to my bracelet!


They have some amazing styles available, and the great thing is – you can get them at any Pandora retailer! Pandora is a really fun concept and they really do have a charm for every occasion. The only drawback is they can be a bit expensive – but I think that makes them all the more special! What about you – do you collect Pandora or another type of charm or Disney jewelry?
