T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy (Belated) Birthday To The World’s Favorite Mouse!

Can you believe this guy celebrated his 86th Birthday on Tuesday? He looks pretty good for 86, I think! It’s hard to imagine a character being able to stay relevant and entertain audiences for that long, but I guess that’s what makes Mickey so special! Of course, he has had a few tweaks and changes over time – So here’s a peek at Mickey’s different looks throughout the years…

Mickey Mouse through the years

I love this poster – we have it hanging at my parent’s house, and I especially love “Today” Mickey – he is so late 80’s early 90’s don’t you think?

TGIF Mickey 3

Here he is on the opening day of Disneyland Park in 1955 with his creator, Walt Disney

TGIF Mickey 4

And here he is on opening day of the Magic Kingdom at Disney World in Florida, 1971

Something tells me Mickey has a lot more entertaining to do, and that he will be delighting audiences of all ages for many years to come. So here’s to you Mickey Mouse – HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Happy 59th Birthday To The Iconic Disneyland Park!

DisneylandOpeningDay

Today marks the 59th anniversary of the opening of Walt’s dream come true – the original Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. If you’ve never been, then I highly recommend you make the trip there at least once in your lifetime. It’s where the magic all started, and where Walt himself gave the opening day speech that included the words “To All who come to this happy place – welcome!”

Check out some Disney facts and history here. Happy 59 years to Disneyland, and here’s to many, MANY more!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Cool Off This Summer With These Delicious Disney Frozen Drinks

Tomorrow marks the first official day of SUMMER – which means trips to the beach, cookouts, fresh cut grass, family vacations (to DISNEY WORLD perhaps?) and most of all – it means long, HOT days. I am always looking for ways to cool off in the summer, and one way I like to do it is with super cold frozen drinks – what could be better on a hot day than an ice cold slushy beverage? Oh – well, one thing that would make it better is if you happened to be enjoying said beverage while at the Happiest Place On Earth – and luckily, they offer quite the selection of delicious frozen drinks to choose from:

 FrozenLemonade

The classic frozen lemonade is available at all the Parks – from Disneyland to Disney World, you’ll find this in its classic lemon flavor, and strawberry, raspberry, and other varieties pop up from time to time too!

StoplightMargarita

Frozen margarita anyone? This adults only frozen beverage is not only super cold and delicious (times 3 different flavors!), but its fun to look at too! You can get this at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

LefouBrew2

Gaston’s Tavern is home to “LeFou’s Brew” – an apple flavored slush (available with optional souvenir cup!)

DoleWhipFloat

You could always stick with a classic and grab a Dole Whip Float – pineapple soft serve balanced on top of delicious pineapple juice – what a sweet treat

Glaciers

Over at Goofy’s Candy Company in Downtown Disney, you can customize your own frozen drink by picking from a bunch of flavors and mixing them together!

GoofysGlaciersCups

Oh, and you can make your own cup too – with a ton of awesome base/cup options!

Hopefully you’re gearing up for summer and all the great fun that comes along with it – and if you’re lucky enough to be heading to the Disney Parks this summer, be sure to keep cool with these delicious drinks!

New Disney Alex and Ani Designs Coming This Month!

I have written about how much I LOVE LOVE the Disney Alex and Ani collection – and luckily for me and all the other Alex and Ani fans out there, Disney has expanded it’s offerings!! As of June 5th (that’s tomorrow for those of you keeping track – I know I am!), they will start offering new bracelets themed after Disney Princesses, Theme Parks, events, and more!

ALexAni New 1

New designs will be released sporadically over the coming weeks, and I personally can’t wait for the Princess designs (especially Aurora and Cinderella!)

AlexAniNew 2

AlexAni New 3

They will be available for purchase at select Park stores, and online at the DisneyStore.com – but you better stay on top of it if you want to get one soon – as I am sure the demand will be huge and they will sell out fast!

Check out the official release information here on the Disney Parks Blog
