T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Spotlight On “Pandora: The World Of Avatar”

Fans of the popular 2009 flick Avatar will soon be able to transport themselves into the scenes from the movie – with the upcoming opening of Disney’s biggest Animal Kingdom expansion to date – “Pandora: The World Of Avatar”

As you walk onto the moon of Pandora, you will feel like you’ve truly been transported to another place! A place that features 12 acres of floating mountains, exotic and colorful plants and even a bio-luminescent rainforest!

The area will feature two new rides “Avatar Flight of Passage” and “Na’vi River Journey” (pictured above)

Much of what we have seen up until now is just concept art – but as you can see, the construction is in full swing, as they prep for official opening of the World Of Avatar on May 27th. I know I can’t wait to see the finished product – how about you?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – A Little #FBF – And Why I Love WDW

My husband says to me the other day “can you believe it’s been almost 7 years since we got married?” – and I really can’t – the time has flown by in a blur of love, laughter, fun, and trips to DISNEY of course! We went to Walt Disney World together for the first time on our honeymoon – it was hot, humid, and super crowded – but it was one of the best times I have ever had!

So today’s TGIF post is brought to you by me and my husband’s first ever trip together to the Most Magical Place On Earth:

When people ask me “Why do you love Disney so much – what’s so great about it?” It’s hard to put into words – it’s the sights, the sounds, the smells, the atmosphere – the rides, the food – it’s just such an amazing place with something everyone will love – and it will make you feel like a kid again (something we can all use once in a while!)

Happy Flashback Friday – and TGIF!

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 – Usher In Spring and Summer With This Bright Disney Kitchenware!

Living in Upstate New York means that it can snow basically anytime from September through May – and even though it’s only early April, I feel almost *mostly* confident in saying that Spring has Sprung! Green things are growing, the temperatures are rising, and most exciting of all – I am MOVING SOON – to a house with a POOL! So needless to say, I am pumped for spring/summer this year – to have a deck and pool to get to enjoy the nice weather, and to get the chance to entertain and host many pool parties and get togethers! So as I like to do, I was browsing the Disney Store for some things that might go nicely in my new house, and I found some awesome kitchen/serving stuff that is PERFECT for the upcoming warm weather months:

I can just see myself serving up drinks and snacks in these adorable bowls and cups while lounging on my deck by the pool! Check out the full line of Mickey Mouse Citrus here

And here’s hoping I’m right about no more snow – fingers crossed! TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Cheers To The Weekend!

I don’t know about you, but I am VERY glad that we have reached the end of the work week – my household has been particularly busy lately as we prepare to sell our house and buy a new one, so by the time Friday comes around lately – I have been MORE than ready to relax and unwind – and what better way to do that than to enjoy a deliciously refreshing adult beverage?

While I wish more than anything I could be back at WDW enjoying these amazing restaurants and drinks, I will settle for just a chance to put my feet up and spend time with my favorite men (big, little, and dog!)

TGIF – and Cheers!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Spotlight On “Be Our Guest”

As you probably already know, last weekend the new Beauty And The Beast Live Action movie was released in theaters. I was lucky enough to get to go see it, and I loved it – the characters were amazing – especially the beast! The movie will bring about a whole new generation of Beauty And The Beast lovers – and Disney World is more than prepared for that! When they re-designed Fantasyland, they included a restaurant themed after the movie called “Be Our Guest” – and it is basically like walking into the movie! Check it out:

Be Our Guest Restaurant Rose GalleryBOG3BOG4BOG5BOG6

BOG2

The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner with a French-themed menu, featuring items like Croque Monsieur (grilled ham and cheese sandwich), Tuna Nicoise Salad, and of course – “The Grey Stuff” is offered on the dessert menu (try your hand at making your own Grey Stuff At Home!)

While it is labeled as a “Quick Service” Restaurant, I would recommend making a reservation if you’re planning to head here – as the lines can be insane, and it will only get busier with the release of the new movie! I can’t wait to try it out next time I’m in WDW!

TGIF!
