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:

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

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:

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 – Fall Is OFFICIALLY Here!

A few weeks ago I wrote about how pumped I was for the Fall Season to begin at Walt Disney World – and while that might have been a bit premature with it barely being September and all – now I can say with certainty that fall is TRULY upon us (it officially started yesterday!) so that means all things FALL are HERE (whether you like it or not, ha!)

WDW’s Magic Kingdom is all dressed up for fall – and even if you aren’t a fall fan, you can surely appreciate the awesomeness of this photo – creepy, spooky, and full of fall flair! Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is in full swing, and let’s just say that fall is a great time to head to Walt Disney World – the food, décor, merchandise and overall spirit of autumn are all in the air!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “So Basic I Can’t Even”

Perhaps you have heard of the term “Basic White Girl” – and if you haven’t, I can school you on it – it’s your typical fall-loving, pumpkin spice latter drinking, apple picking, scarf wearing gal who just adores everything about fall and all that goes with it. Maybe the term might offend some, but I personally find it to be funny, and truth be told I am about as Basic as they come. I LIVE for fall, and the unveiling of all things fall at Disney is something I look forward to every year. And now that it is September, I feel like I can OFFICIALLY be excited about fall – and all the great ways Disney brings it to life:

There’s the fall décor that springs up everywhere you turn at the Parks

And then there’s the seasonally themed treats for sale at all the Disney Parks, too!

 And for those of us not lucky enough to be headed to Walt Disney World this fall, we can take solace in the fact that the Disney Store has a nice big Halloween Section – full of amazing costumes and décor and other fun stuff you can use at home to make this the BEST FALL EVER!!

Ok – sorry – got a little excited there – can’t help it – it’s the basic girl in me!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Ok Though – Spring Can SERIOUSLY Start Sprouting Up Anytime…

It snowed last week at my house. And we aren’t talking just a little tiny dusting that immediately melted/didn’t even turn the ground white. No. we are talking big, fluffy white flakes, all night and all day. And while I realize it’s pretty common for that to happen here in Upstate NY, I just am really ready for it to be done, and for the flowers to come poking out, and the grass and leaves to grow nice and green…and since that clearly isn’t going to be happening here anytime soon, I invite you to join me on a little virtual trip to Walt Disney World, specifically to the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival – where spring has DEFINITELY sprung:

The Festival itself features these and many many more amazing topiaries and floral displays, as well as concerts, seminars, demonstrations, and farm to table dining. It runs from the beginning of March to the end of May, and even if you’re not an avid gardener, you will appreciate the beauty and effort that is put into this amazing annual celebration!

What better way to celebrate spring than with a festival in bloom? Now if only some of that could head up North…TGIF!

T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week: A Closer Look At Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

One of my dreams is to someday spend Halloween at Walt Disney World – and to dress in costume to attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. WHY, you might be wondering? Well, it just sounds like too much fun to pass up!

For those not familiar with the event, it’s held on select evenings in September and October, and features trick or treating, a Halloween parade, special character appearances and more. Check it out:

Kids of all ages get into the Happy Halloween spirit while trick-or-treating during MickeyÕs Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at the Magic Kingdom. The family-friendly after-hours event also offers dance parties, meet and greets with favorite characters in costume, plus the must-see "Mickey's Boo-to-You Halloween Parade" and "Happy HalloWishes" fireworks display. Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is a special ticket event and takes place on select nights each fall at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. (Ali Nasser, photographer)

Ok so I know that maybe I am slightly biased because I love fall so much, but I just can’t imagine a more fun way to spend Halloween than at DISNEY WORLD – with candy, dressed up characters, and pumpkins galore!
I can just picture myself – dressed as Minnie Mouse, enjoying a delicious caramel apple as I take in the parade…#fallgoals #maybesomeday
