T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney’s Live Action Dumbo Takes Flight!


Dumbo is one of those Disney movies I could never watch – it just was too much for me, emotionally. The mocking of Dumbo, the treatment of his mother, Dumbo and his mother and the song – I can’t – there just aren’t enough tissues in the world for it


So when I heard they were re-making it into a live-action film – let’s just say, my feelings were “mixed” at best…




But, after reading up on it – the cast seems really strong, and from what I have read and seen in trailers and such – it might just turn out to be an amazing remake! I will give it a chance…but I will still be bringing my tissues for SURE. The movie hits theaters next month – Will YOU be heading to see it?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Disney Dooney & Bourke!

As a woman, I love me a good designer handbag. And even if you aren’t a purse fan, surely you can appreciate the time and talent that goes into creating an exquisite bag. Disney has had a partnership with the high-end Dooney & Bourke brand for years, and they have recently branched out with three BRAND NEW collections, check it out:
Beauty and the Beast was one of the first movies I remember going to see in the theater – and it is still just as magical today as the day it was released (almost 25 years ago!)
The “Tea Time” collection is my personal favorite – as I am a huge Alice In Wonderland fan (I even have a tattoo of a quote from the movie!), and I could watch it over and over again without getting bored of it
I love the design of the Dumbo series – almost like a chalkboard-ish type drawing, and the red accents are the perfect touch
These collections will be available via the “Shop Disney Parks” Mobile App – which I HIGHLY recommend you download if you’re a Disney fan like me – it gives you the opportunity to have merchandise that is normally only available in the Disney Parks shipped directly to your front door! Perfect for the Disney lover who isn’t able to spend as much time at WDW as they would like (like me, and every other Disney fanatic out there who wishes they could just live in Cinderella’s Castle!)
TGIF, and happy shopping!

Disney Announces Opening Date For The New Fantasyland!


Amid all the anticipation, the waiting, the not knowing – it’s all over! Disney announced this week that they will be opening up the new portions of Fantasyland in WDW’s Magic Kingdom on December 6, 2012!

Part of the new Fantasyland is already open (including Dumbo the flying elephant and Goofy’s Barnstormer!), and I had the good fortune to be able to check it out and take a ride on Dumbo in April!

“So what’s new?” I know when I heard they were opening Fantasyland on Dec 6, I wanted to know what attractions I could look forward to! Here is what will be opening as of December 6:
-Under the Sea~Journey of the Little Mermaid: Enter Prince Eric’s castle, board a giant clamshell and rock out on this new musical attraction
-Enchanted Tales with Belle: Become part of a lively retelling of the “tale as old as time,” hosted by Belle and Lumière
-Ariel’s Grotto: Take photos and get autographs with everyone’s favorite undersea princess

As if that isn’t enough, they also confirmed they are going to be opening the much anticipated Be Our Guest restaurant on that day as well, which will include counter service lunch and a table service dinner, served inside the Beast’s Castle (themed after Disney’s Beauty and the Beast – one of my personal faves!)

Check out the Disney Parks Blog for more information and updates on the new Fantasyland!

I don’t know about you, but I personally am most excited about the Be Our Guest Restaurant, and will probably try and eat there for lunch AND dinner next time I am in Walt Disney World!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Storybook Circus Brings Even More Magic And Fun To WDW

Walt Disney World is always improving, changing, and updating to help create a better experience for their guests. Currently one of their big projects is an expansion (aka complete overhaul) to Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom. The area that was formerly Mickey’s Toon Town (which will no longer exist, sadly) is roped off and being constructed into a huge new Fantasyland complete with a new castle (the Beast’s Castle from Beauty and the Beast!).

The project is still under construction, but last week part of the area had a ‘soft opening’ (which basically means they open and close the area whenever they want to in order to experiement with traffic patterns and other operational issues involving the new attractions). The areas that were being tested during this time are the new flying Dumbo ride, and The Great Goofini (a kid friendly roller coaster that is the only thing from Mickey’s Toontown that wasn’t removed).

When will the project be fully done? Sometime later this year or early in 2013 is the latest rumor. Disney’s official information on the Fantasyland expansion can be found Here

Fantasyland may not be the most sophisticated place, and it may not be targeted specifically at adults, but it’s always been a place I have loved, it’s a place of magic and fun for those of all ages, and I personally can’t wait to see the finished product!
