T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – A New Place To Get Even More Great Disney Pics!

Disney just recently opened a new PhotoPass Studio in Disney Springs – giving families more opportunity to capture even more great photo memories of their WDW Trip! Check it out:

You can get some great traditional posed family photos, or you can jazz it up – they have a variety of backgrounds and special effects to choose from, and they even have props available too!

As someone who LOVES photos (and considers them by far the best souvenir of all), I would DEFINITELY take advantage of this new studio style setting to snap some family shots. How about you – will you be making the trip over to the new PhotoPass Studio on your next WDW Trip?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Christmas Wish Lists

We may only be partly through November, but I know I for one have already gotten a bunch of Christmas shopping done – I like to plan ahead, and I like making lists, too! So while I plug away at ticking things off my “To Do/To Buy” list, I am also working on making a Wish List. You’re never too old to make a list of things you hope “Santa” will bring you, and since I am a Disney fanatic, of course my Christmas Wish List Is Full of Disney:

     adult-hoodie

Is it slightly ridiculous to wish for a hoodie with ears at 32 years old? Probably. But do I care? NO WAY – just look at how cute this thing is!!!

pursexmas
Ok well – this one is probably a bit unrealistic to wish for, but hey, it’s MY wish list – therefore I can put whatever I want on it!
holidaymug10
With a toddler to look after, plus shopping, baking, entertaining, traveling, wrapping, and MUCH more to do this holiday season – I think I can safely say that I will need MUCH coffee to get me through – and this mug would certainly help put me in that holiday spirit!

?

Ok well, enough about me – let’s talk about the guy I can’t seem to stop shopping for.

My 2 year old is definitely a “Disney addict in training”,

because his wish list this year is pretty heavily Disney-populated too:
microphone
Since he likes to pick up dog toys and pretend they are microphones, I thought this one would be a good choice (less sharp and heavy than the dog toys at least!)
shelves
With more toys does NOT come more space in my house – so any way I can find to store all his stuff is a win for me – plus these have the Mouse himself on them – so it’s a win/win for me and my Mickey-obsessed little man!
pjs
I couldn’t help myself on these – he will look so dang cute!

Hopefully this has inspired you to get going on your own wish list – and your to do list for the holidays! TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week Post – That Kid’s Smile…

This week’s picture selection comes straight from my crazy toddler – who makes me laugh every day with his silliness. On Halloween I got out my Minnie Mouse ears to wear while we brought him trick or treating (his first time!) so that I at least wouldn’t be totally without costume, but my son had other ideas for them…

I am pretty sure there is no cuter Minnie Mouse ever in the history of the world, am I right?

Stay tuned next week for what’s on this kids (and MY) Disney Christmas wish lists (since Halloween is over that means it’s basically Christmas, right?)

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

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: My Top WDW Photo Opp Spot

I LOVE LOVE taking photos – of anything and everything! These days its mostly my son, and my dog, but when I am on vacation I try to capture it ALL – the sights, the people, the fun – needless to say, I usually end up with A LOT of photos to sort through after a trip to Walt Disney World. I take photos everywhere in Disney – on rides, in line for rides, in stores, and in anyplace you can think of basically, but I have to say, there is one spot that is my favorite place to pose for (and take!) pictures:

castleday

photos-castlenight

Main Street USA is the perfect picture spot – the view of the quaint “street”, storefronts, and Castle in the distance – it doesn’t get much more “Disney” than that. I can’t wait to take my son and get our first family photo in front of the castle someday!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: My Top Picks For Disney Halloween Costumes

Halloween is coming up! Ok – maybe it’s still a month away, but hey – tomorrow will be October, and that means all things spooky and scary (including scary movies on TV like 24/7 which is a DREAM come true for me!), and it also means it’s time to start thinking about what you’re going to be for Halloween! As a HUGE Disney fanatic, my first thoughts obviously go to some of my favorite Disney characters. And in doing my “research” (aka scrolling through google/pinterest/Disney facebook forums), I came across some people who are legit killing it and are so on top of their costume game it’s downright SCARY! Check out my picks for top Disney Halloween Costumes:

costumes-ursula

Best DIY – This is dedication – I mean really – putting purple makeup all over yourself cannot be an easy or fast process – but it’s worth it for the end result of this amazing Ursula getup

costumes-couple

Best Couples Costume – Ok so Mickey and Minnie would be the obvious choice here, which is probably why I love this so much – you don’t see many Donald (or Daisy!) costumes, and I love that they went for the DIY on this, too!

costumes-baby

Cutest Disney Babe – I know my toddler would hate me for this (don’t worry I won’t be subjecting him to this!) – as I am sure it’s thick, uncomfortable, and hot as heck with that giant hood piece – but could it be any cuter? I mean really, a baby Fozzy costume – wokka wokka!!

costumes-funniest

Funniest – If you’ve been to Walt Disney World then you might have seen these cards – they hand them out randomly as you enter a ride queue, and they help determine the wait time for the ride. I know I always feel so special when I get chosen to carry one, and so when I stumbled across this costume I just had to share it (hey, it made me laugh!)

costume-store-bought

Best Store-Bought – For me it just doesn’t get any cuter than a little girl dressed as a Disney Princess – and the Disney Store as well as costume stores like Party City sell some super cute princess frocks (and accessories too!)

So what will it be for you – a classic Mickey, or another of your favorite Disney characters? I would love to know – tell me in the comments! TGIF!
