T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Incredible Tomorrowland Expo” Flies Into The Magic Kingdom!

In honor of Disney Pixar’s Incredibles 2 – which hits theaters June 15th – Disney has gone all out – celebrating all things Incredible and Super – hero that is! With their Incredible Tomorrowland Expo on now through the summer at The Magic Kingdom’s Tomorrowland

The experiences include interacting with the movie’s stars, theming and music, and all things Super Hero! Oh, and then there’s the food:

Tomorrowland food vendors have all gotten in on the action too – with Incredible-Themed menu items to celebrate! Pictured above we have Edna Mode’s “No Capes, Just Crêpes” Crêpe Sundae, Mrs. Incredible Pretzel Mask (topped with black salt!), and the Super Stretchy Burger (featuring Mozzarella sticks)

Disney had this to say about this celebration: “Thanks to The Incredibles, the world has once again embraced the Supers! So, in honor of all the good Super Heroes do, Tomorrowland presents the Incredible Tomorrowland Expo—where you’ll have the chance to interact with Mr. Incredible, Frozone, Mrs. Incredible and, for the first time, Edna Mode!”

Sounds like a great time to me! I loved the Incredibles and can’t wait to see the new one – I plan on taking my dad, husband, and son to it for Father’s Day – how about you – will you head to the theaters in a few weeks to see the Incredibles 2?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Ok Target Just Take ALL MY MONEY

I always knew this day would come. I KNEW Disney would find a way to bankrupt me. I just always assumed it would be via their Parks and insanely priced souvenirs – I NEVER thought it could hit this close to home. So close in fact – that it is at every single Target store in the country – and I am powerless to stop the magnetic pull it has on me!

Target8

Target7

Disney recently released a TON of new merchandise, being sold exclusively at Target stores around the country. And we aren’t talking just a few little knick knacks and kids clothes or something like that – no – we are talking FULL ON Disney taking over Target. Kid’s and babies clothes/shoes, adult clothes, home goods, bedding, makeup, and then there’s the SUMMER stuff – pool accessories, camping stuff, and the list goes on AND ON – seriously.

Target4

So obviously – I had to check it out for myself. And I brought my tiny Disney fan too. He scored some Mickey Lip Balms to share with me

Target5

I had to seriously limit myself to only the necessities. I need to moisturize my lips, and I need something to drink coffee out of, and Walter NEEDS a Mickey hoodie (ok – maybe that last one is a bit of a stretch – but stores NEVER have the XL dog clothes/costumes – so I jumped on it!)

Target6

….He was less than impressed but a good sport nonetheless (treats were involved so that helped!)

target2.jpgTarget1target-3.jpg

And then I couldn’t resist matching tumblers for the family – another necessity really – as we all need to drink water, right?

There. Is. So. Much. Check it out online – and if you’re at Target just look up for the giant “Love Mickey” signs hanging from the ceiling – they will point you towards the good stuff!

…Seriously though I am going to need a second job just to fund my love for all things Disney at Target. Hmm…maybe Target is hiring?

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Wardrobe – DONE!

My family is headed to Walt Disney World in September – and even though that may be (several) months away, I have already begun preparing. Lists galore – packing list, “To-Do” list, souvenir wish list, and of course – a pre-trip shopping list. There are practical things on there – like sunscreen, snacks, and antibacterial wipes – and then there are the slightly LESS practical items – like “new Disney wardrobes for everyone”. Would I love to buy cute new outfits (some even matching) for us to all wear for our trip? Of course. But am I made of money/am I insane? A big NO to both of those – I have enough to plan for/think about/deal with when it comes to vacation planning to be attempting to also shop like crazy for new clothes – and as much as I want to – it’s just not practical for me and my family

So, in lieu of that, I decided I better see what we have to wear for Disney! And the good news is – we have A LOT:

Wardrobe3

My husband has a few – my fave is the Star Wars “Galaxy’s Best Dad” one – makes me laugh

Wardrobe2

My son of course has a TON – as he loves Disney, Star Wars and basically anything animated

Wardrobe1

….And of course, I have the most – including some Minnie Mouse printed LuLaRoe leggings

So – as it turns out, I can cross “new Disney wardrobes” off my shopping list – as we already have TONS of great stuff to wear on our trip in September! Will we match/coordinate? Probably not – but does that even really matter? Probably not ha

Side note –those of you who have the money/time/desire to buy all new clothes and matching outfits and all that for your Disney vacation – good for you and more power to you! I in NO WAY judge you AT ALL – I personally just have to (unfortunately) draw the line somewhere – and I think since we already have a ton of cute stuff, we will just be able to wear what we have, and still be able to show off our Disney Love with every outfit!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 29 Years Of Movies And Fun!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been taking guest on a journey through the movies for over 29 years – in fact, on May 1st the Park celebrated it’s 29th anniversary!

MGM1

“The World you have entered was created by The Walt Disney Company and is dedicated to Hollywood—not a place on a map, but a state of mind that exists wherever people dream and wonder and imagine, a place where illusion and reality are fused by technological magic. We welcome you to a Hollywood that never was—and always will be.” – Michael Eisner said this during his speech on the day the park opened – back then it was called “Disney’s MGM Studios” – and some of us old timers (like myself will probably always call it that)

In honor of the Park celebrating 29 years, here’s a look back on some of my favorite Hollywood Studios moments:

There’s a new Sheriff in town! Standing at nearly 20 feet tall, Woody is posed right at the entrance to welcome you to Toy Story Land! Woody will be right in front of another popular Toy Story character’s attraction – The Slinky Dog Dash – which has been under construction since last fall

I can’t wait until June 30th to see pictures and videos of the finished product – and then to actually visit in person in September!
