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!

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 – 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

If you need some help getting started, check out the RunDisney Training Page and Blog for tips and much more

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!

TGIF!
