T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – #FallVibes

Personally – I am already into fall mode – I have decorations up, apples have been picked (and made into applesauce!), and pumpkin coffees and lattes have been obtained from various local baristas. And while many of you may think it’s too early for this, I can assure you – it’s NOT, and guess what – DISNEY AGREES WITH ME!

The Parks are already decked out in their Fall Finery for all to enjoy!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party has already started this year, too believe it or not (including exclusive party snacks):

A spectacle of characters parades down Main Street, U.S.A in “Mickey’s Boo-to You Halloween Parade” during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Magic Kingdom. The parade is led by the Headless Horseman and includes Disney characters in Halloween regalia and the ghostly inhabitants of The Haunted Mansion. 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)

Oh – and if you want to look the part, I suggest you head over to the Disney store website and check out what’s new for Halloween/fall 2016!

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Why Halloween Is The PERFECT Time To Visit WDW

While every day at WDW is sure to be an amazing one, there are certain days/times of the year that are more magical than others. Personally, I LOVE Disney at Christmastime – the decorations, the food, the sounds, the smells – it’s all amazing! BUT – it is also one of the BUSIEST times of the year at the Parks, with crowds so thick that the wait time for Space Mountain is 2.5 hours or more…so understandably, not everyone would jump at the chance to head there in late December.

All things considered, the perfect time of year for visiting WDW is really around Halloween time – the crowds are lighter, the weather cooler, and the décor and atmosphere is just as amazing (if not more so!) than at Christmas! Check out these shots of Halloween at WDW:

Halloween 1

Trick or treat, meet and greet with characters, and enjoy an exclusive parade – all of this and more can be found at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

Halloween 3 Halloween 2 Halloween 5

The décor is really amazing at this time of year – they go all out with pumpkins and fall theming everywhere!

Halloween 9 Halloween 8 Halloween 6 Halloween 7

And what would a Halloween celebration be without themed treats? Decorated and delicious – these will delight those of all ages (not to mention make me drool all over my keyboard…)

I can’t WAIT to bring my son to experience Halloween at Walt Disney World – I just know he will find it as amazingly magical as I do!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween to everyone! Hope you enjoy this fun holiday as much as I do – I love scary movies and trick or treating and candy and costumes and decorating for it – it’s a great time for all, and now that I have a little guy of my own, it will be great to get to experience it all with him too!

20141023_112219

Here’s my little guy all ready to party! Ok well maybe not party – maybe take a nap. and poop. But still – he’s dressed for the occasion anyway! He also has a Mickey Mouse costume to rock out tonight when we hand out candy (what kind of Disney lover would I be if I didn’t have a Disney costume for him, right?!)

Speaking of Disney costumes, you can buy them pretty much everywhere now – costume stores, Target, Walmart, KMart – you name a store, they carry Disney Halloween gear! If you’re planning on heading to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at WDW’s Magic Kingdom, then you will definitely want to think about what to wear to it – costumes are encouraged and are a must for any trick or treating party! People really like to think outside the box when it comes to dressing for the party:

Halloween1

Toy Story Themed Toys – Love this as a family costume idea!

Halloween2

Haunted Mansion characters – so creative!

Halloween3

UP themed couple’s costume

Halloween4

These Mickey Bars look delicious, don’t they?!

Halloween5

Classic Couple Mickey And Minnie pose for a kiss!

So while you can buy premade Disney costumes anywhere, if you use your imagination you can probably come up with something even more unique and amazing to wear to the Party – whether it be at Disney or at home!

Enjoy your Halloween – and TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Pumpkin Season Is Back At The Disney Parks

This is my favorite season of all for so many reasons – the leaves changing, the air cooling off and getting that amazing crispness it does in fall, the apple picking, and all the awesome pumpkin treats available too! Disney takes FULL advantage of every season and holiday – and autumn is no exception! Check out these awesome treats available at the Disney Parks this Pumpkin Season:

Pumpkinfudge

Pumpkin fudge – always a winner. You can find this on Main Street USA

Disney PSL

Now that Starbuck’s has invaded the Disney Parks, you can grab your Pumpkin Spice Latte in the signature Disney parks starbucks cup!

PumpkinCandyApples

Ok – these don’t actually taste like pumpkin – but aren’t these candy apples adorable? Too cute too eat (well – almost anyway…)

pumpkin-beignets

Disneyland has the market cornered on these babies – Mickey shaped pumpkin beignets, served with a rich vanilla bean dipping sauce

PumpkinMugs

And if you can’t make it to Disney to check out all the fall fun – then check out these awesome mugs and other Halloween Merchandise available from the Disney Store. And if you’re feeling hungry and in the mood to bake – check out my baking blog for some more Pumpkin Fun

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Fall Season Is In Full Bloom At The Disney Parks!

Fall is – in my humble opinion – the very best season of all! Apple and pumpkin everything, cool air, changing leaves, sweaters – I love it all. And although autumn may not officially begin for a few days (9/22 to be exact!) – the season is definitely in the air everywhere – here in upstate NY you can see it in the apple orchards and feel it in the crisp air, and in Walt Disney World, you can see it everywhere you look!

…And of course with fall comes Halloween – which Disney is already fully prepared for, since they are already in the midst of their Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party celebrations! Whether or not you get to celebrate fall or Halloween at Disney, I hope you get to enjoy the season as much as I do!
