T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – “Christopher Robin” Will Bring You Back

r_christopherrobin_header_ddt-16713_7c69a010

Last week Disney’s “Christopher Robin” arrived in theaters, delighting those of all ages – and bringing a new generation of fans to the movies to see a delightfully forgetful Hunny-loving bear and his pals go through misadventures in the Hundred Acre Wood:

The gang’s all here – Winnie the Pooh, Rabbit, Tigger, Eeyore, Kanga and Roo – all the characters I adored as a child have come back to help remind us of our childhoods

Disney said this about the film: “In the heatwarming live action adventure “Disney’s Christopher Robin,” the young boy who loved embarking on adventures in the Hundred Acre Wood with a band of spirited and loveable stuffed animals, has grown up and lost his way. Now it is up to his childhood friends to venture into our world and help Christopher Robin remember the loving and playful boy who is still inside.”

…Sometimes I think we ALL need that reminder, a friend to help us find our way back to our true path. Well done, Pooh. Well done.

Pooh and friends were always a favorite of mine as a kid – so I can’t wait to head to the theater to check this out – What about you? Have you seen it yet?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Character Interaction At It’s Finest

One of the BEST things about visiting Disney World is getting the chance to meet and great your favorite characters – and I firmly believe that no one is too old for a hug from Mickey Mouse or Pooh! We have had some truly amazing character interactions over the years:

Donald dressed as Davey Crockett is a pretty regular fixture over in the Magic Kingdom’s Frontierland – and we visited him at the perfect time on this day, as there was NO line, and he was feeling feisty to boot! My husband has a really cool old Mickey shaped film camera (remember film? Ha) that he happened to be carrying around that day – and Donald did NOT care for it – he shook his fist at it in fury – as he believed it should have been a Donald camera instead!

We were lucky enough to be the very last people to get to see Tigger and Eeyore on this particular morning – and even though they had just signed countless autographs and dealt with lord knows how many crying babies, they still had huge hugs for us, and we were able to capture this great picture with them, too

When Minnie found out we had just gotten married she was SO happy for us! She even gave my groom a kiss!
I can’t wait until my son is old enough to get to meet his favorite characters, and I hope his first interactions with them are as great as these!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Enjoy Some 100 Acre Wood Fun In The Magic Kingdom

 

As a kid, I REALLY loved Winnie The Pooh – so much so that I wore out the video tapes (yeah, videos – you remember, the ancestor to the blu-ray?). Luckily for me, I can get my Winnie the Pooh fix right at the Magic Kingdom as there’s a ride and restaurant just for us 100 Acre Wood Fanatics!

Pooh3

The Crystal Palace is a buffet that serves up breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily – with a side helping of characters of course! Pooh, Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore circulate and hand out hugs and autographs and pose for pictures while you get to enjoy the delicious buffet! Check out my breakfast review on the Disney Food Blog for more details

Then once you are full from your delicious Crystal Palace eats, I suggest you head over to The Many Adventures Of Winnie The Pooh ride (don’t worry, it is safe to ride on a full stomach – and kid friendly too!) – where you travel through the classic Winnie The Pooh stories (blustery day and Heffelumps anyone?) while riding in an adorable honey pot

Pooh10

Oh – but don’t be sad once the ride is over! As there is of course a gift shop where you can bring home your very own Eeyore or other cuddly Pooh character!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Cuddly Stuffed Friends!

I don’t know about you – but when I was a kid, one of my favorite toys was my stuffed animals – I had a pile on my bed, and they were my companions, audience, tea party guests, game opponents…and the list goes on. That love of cuddly stuffed toys has followed me into adulthood – and when I go to Disney, I have to restrain myself from buying all of them…

TGIFDuffy   

Me and Duffy – I actually do have one of these guys (and a mini one too!) at home – I love the story about Minnie sewing Duffy for Mickey and Duffy going on all of Mickey’s adventures with him!

TGIFMickeyPlush

Everyone needs at least one Mickey to hug – this classic one is adorable!

TGIFEEyoreplush

It’s hard to say who looks more pathetically gloomy – my husband or Eeyore

TGIFNerdMinnie

I love this little Minnie with glasses – I totally would have bought this when I was a kid!

TGIFHugsie

…he really does smell like strawberries – isn’t that something?

Stuffed animals are great for those of all ages – from infant to toddler to child, to teens and adults too! Disney has them all, in all sizes, and they are all adorable and cuddly! Hmm – maybe next trip I should bring an empty suitcase so I can purchase a few new furry friends…

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Some Of My Favorite (Disney) Things

There are MANY things to love about Walt Disney World, so many that it’s hard to narrow down my absolute “favorites”, but I can try…

TiggerEeyore

A Hug From A Character – there are few things better than this, it just makes you instantly feel like a kid again!

Mickey WAffles

Mickey Waffles – Luckily this one isn’t limited to just the Disney Parks, I can make them at home with my Mickey Waffle Maker!

Catie Mainst

This is my absolute favorite view in the whole world (disney world or real world!) – the view of Cinderella’s Castle down Main Street is amazing, it just reminds me that I’m “home” again

 

These are just a very few of my favorite Disney things – they are each special to me, and seeing them reminds me of just how special Disney World is, and how much I love it!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Pooh For President?

Since this week was election week, we can celebrate the victory of the candidates, as well as celebrate the END OF CAMPAIGN ADS ON TV YAY! I am particularly excited about this, as I hate those ads!

But here is a candidate I can really get behind – Winnie The Pooh! Pooh ran for president at the Magic Kingdom back in 1972, as the candidate for the Demo-Pooh-biclan Party. He was all for disclosing the ‘bear facts’ and bottomless honey jars. Pooh was assisted by his campaign manager Eeyore and his press secretary Tigger.

When I stumbled across this on the Disney Parks Blog, I thought it was too cute not to share!
