T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Counting Down To Our Trip With Top “Can’t Wait!” Moments

TWENTY THREE SHORT DAYS FROM NOW I WILL BE HEADED TO WALT DISNEY WORLD! To say that I am excited is a severe understatement. I cannot wait to get away, to step onto Disney Property, to show my son the Magic, to ride the rides, eat the food….and the list goes on (and on)

So in the spirit of countdowns – I am going to be featuring my top “Can’t Wait!” moments over the next couple of weeks – and first up is Dinner With The Fab Five:

Chef Mickey’s has always been one of my favorite places to eat – the location at the Contemporary Resort is a quick monorail ride from the Magic Kingdom, and the buffet style food is always consistently adequate (nothing amazing, but fresh and enough variety for everyone to find something they like). The best part here though is the CHARACTERS – The “Fab Five” are the main attraction here – Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto – in their CHEF clothes!

I can’t wait to eat here next month, and to share the fun with my son (I predict he will especially enjoy the ice cream sundae bar!)

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: My Favorite Disney Moments With My Favorite Birthday Boy

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EVE to my amazing husband – he is not only all around awesome at being married to me (not always an easy task I am sure), but he’s a great dad and friend too! We have had a lot of great times together, and we have been blessed enough to be able to travel to Walt Disney World 4 times together – here’s a recap of some of my fave Disney moments with my fave guy:

PartyOfTwo

There were many delicious meals shared at WDW with my man – we both love trying new foods, and Disney has some amazing restaurants – so it’s the perfect place for foodies like us!

There’s no better place to be than The Magic Kingdom, am I right?

Cp Tigger

Posing with characters is fun no matter how old you are

The couple that rides Star Tours together, stays together (or something like that…)

Ok, I know this one isn’t a Disney picture – but the cuteness makes up for that, right? I am so grateful for my family and can’t wait to make more Disney memories with them

TGIF – and HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANDREW – may your day be as amazing as you are!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 5 Years Of Laughter & Love

Today my husband and I are celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary! It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years already – the time seems like it has flown by! Today I want to reminisce a little about the time I’ve spent as half of a married couple – and of course by reminisce I mean check out some of our Disney memories!

TGIF Characters

HappyHourBig River

We spend our honeymoon in Walt Disney World – June is a hot, sticky, wet month in Orlando – but we still managed to have a lot of fun! It was the first time I had been back to Disney since I was a teenager – and it was my first time as an adult (without my parents!) and I loved being able to explore and re-visit things as an adult, and a new wife too!

AKL XMAS TREE

Disney World in December is amazing – we went mid-month, and also went to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party – which was a ton of fun. The weather was nice and mild, and getting to see all the amazing Christmas décor everywhere put us in the Christmas spirit for sure!

IceCream

Ice cream on a hot afternoon at Disney? Yes, please. And thank you. And I will even share (because that’s how much I love him!)

Enjoyed the food, drinks, and view from Disney’s California Grill Restaurant atop the amazing Contemporary Resort

Everyone enjoys meeting characters – and this was an especially awesome day – Christmas morning at 1900 Park Fare – amazing food, and awesome characters – and a great time making memories with my husband too!

It’s been 5 years of laughs, fights, hugs, tears, kisses, buying a house, getting a dog, having a kid – and I personally wouldn’t trade a minute of it for anything!

Here’s to a million more memories

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Going To The (Disney!) Dogs

Today is our family dog’s birthday – Mollie is a beautiful chocolate lab celebrating her EIGHTH birthday! I can’t believe she is 8 (makes me feel old!) – she is still so puppy like in so many ways! She is full of life and love – and we are so grateful to have her in our family!

Puppy Mollie

Here she is as a little baby – giving my husband a high five

 ThreeDogs

Here she is with our other family dogs – my boy Walter on the right and his sister Lucy on the left belongs to my parents – can you tell I am holding a treat?

MOLLIE ANDREW

And here Mollie is with her main man – my husband Andrew. She has been enamored with him since the very day she laid eyes on him. Mollie may live at my parent’s house, but her heart belongs to Andrew – they are quite the pair aren’t they?

…Clearly we are dog people, in case you couldn’t tell. Our love for dogs extends beyond our own – we love getting the chance to meet with some of our favorite Disney Dogs too!

Pluto Dog

Mickey’s best pal Pluto is always good for a hug

Goofy Dog

Goofy always makes me smile!

Doug Up

Next up on the Disney Dog list would be to get to meet Doug from UP! Maybe I can ask him if he likes squirrels..hmm…

Happy Birthday to my girl Mollie, and Happy Friday to all! TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Characters Delight Those Of All Ages at 1900 Park Fare

I woke up this morning and the first thing I thought was “I wish I was having breakfast at Disney!” – and if I could pick anywhere I think it would be the character breakfast at 1900 Park Fare at Disney’s beautiful Grand Floridian Resort

The food is great there – they offer a buffet of delicious eats like Mickey waffles, fresh fruit, ham/bacon/sausage, and their signature chilled strawberry soup! But for me, the characters are the main attraction here, and on Christmas day it was definitely a random assortment of characters –Pooh and Tigger, Mary Poppins, Alice, and the Mad Hatter all made their rounds and posed for pictures, autographs, and hugs!

We also stopped after our meal and had our picture taken by the Resort’s beautiful Christmas tree. What a great way to spend Christmas morning (or any day for that matter!)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Mingling With Royalty At WDW

One of the best parts of WDW is the character interaction – you have a chance to meet so many different characters, and it’s always fun to get a hug and a picture with your favorite! One of my favorite ways to meet characters is by going to character meals – there are usually 4 or 5 characters that mingle around while you’re eating to interact with you – and the best part is they come right to you! No waiting in line necessary!

One of more coveted (aka harder to get a reservation for) is Cinderella’s Royal Table in the Magic Kingdom – where breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served in a royal fashion inside Cinderella’s Castle!

CRT CinderellaWhen you arrive, you are greeted downstairs by Cinderella and you have your picture taken with her (the photos are then brought to your table, and the price is included in the meal!)

CRT INsideOnce your name is called, you head upstairs to your table. Personally, I loved getting to see the inside of the Castle – it’s beautiful, and not something that everyone gets to see, so that makes it all the more special!CRT RibThe food here is amazing – my husband especially enjoyed the Prime Rib!

CRT

Why Adults will love it – The food really is amazing, plus guys will like the princesses (they are usually not too hard on the eyes!) and the experience is fun and unique, and makes you feel like real royalty!

Why Kids will love it – getting to meet their favorite princesses and pretend they are little princes and princesses will brighten any little one’s day! Plus, what a perfect excuse to dress up like your favorite Disney Princess!

TGIF!
