T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 2016 Disney Vacation Must-Do’s

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Hope you all had a great time ringing in the new year, and that you are looking forward to starting fresh today and having the best year yet!

If you’re planning on heading to Walt Disney World in 2016, then you will definitely want to add these to your list of “Disney Vacation Resolutions” – as they are ALL Must do’s:

Norway   Epcot’s Norway is being expanded to include the new Frozen meet and greet attraction – where your little princesses will get the chance to hobnob with royalty – none other than Anna and Elsa!

Soarin

Soarin’ is getting overhauled – a third theater and new ride experience that takes you “around the world” make this one a must-see

ToyStoryMania

Toy Story Midway Mania will be getting a third track in 2016 – which will help cut down on the (sometimes REALLY LONG) waits, so if you haven’t checked this one out yet, 2016 will be a good time to give it a try

STK

Any steak fans in your family? You’ll definitely want to check out the new STK steakhouse in Downtown Disney that’s opening in Spring of 2016

As part of the largest expansion in its history, Disney’s Animal Kingdom theme park will be adding all-new entertainment experiences including a new after-dark spectacular centered around and above Discovery River, new nighttime entertainment including live performers on Discovery Island (pictured) and a new night version of Kilimanjaro Safaris. (Concept art, Walt Disney Imagineering)

Animal Kingdom will be adding a “Rivers of Light” nighttime show, which will be just one of the many changes aimed at turning the park into an “after dark” destination

There are so many amazing changes coming to the Happiest Place On Earth in 2016 – and I don’ know about you, but I can’t wait to experience them all! Here’s hoping I can stick to my Resolutions this year….

TGIF – and HAPPY 2016!!!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Spring Is In Bloom At Epcot!

It is starting to finally feel like spring – no more snow (at least I HOPE not), temperatures slowly starting to creep up, birds chirping…these are all good signs in my book! While Florida may not have the extreme seasons like my Upstate NY home does, they still find ways to celebrate the season of regrowth – and one way is with Disney’s annual International Flower and Garden Festival, where each spring starting in March and running through May, guest can view amazing topiaries, gardening displays, and attend gardening seminars (hosted by your favorite HGTV stars!), plus much more!

Check out what is in store at this year’s festival:

Oh, and aside from the amazing gardening displays, they also have tons of “Outdoor kitchens” – basically food kiosks that are serving up some awesomely fresh and delicious eats – like these drool-worthy desserts (have to give props to the always amazing Disney Tourist Blog for these beautiful photos!)

Overall, if you’re a lover of flowers, gardening, and all things Spring – then you will love the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, as they have something for everyone and it’s a great way to spend a day!

TGIF – and HAPPY SPRING!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: Have Your (Disney) Cake And Eat It Too!

Now that I’m a mom, my inspiration for most things usually starts from something related to my son – in this case, I happened to see some birthday parties for little ones on Facebook, and not only were they all super amazing and perfectly themed, but they all had adorable cakes and cupcakes too – and it got me to thinking about ideas for my baby’s first birthday (which is many months away, but hey planning ahead is good right?) – and as far as I’m concerned, the CAKE is one of the most important parts of any party! Check out these awesome Disney themed cakes:

  Cake UP

The movie UP is such a great love story – and a cake like this would be a perfect wedding cake, don’t you think? What a way to start out your greatest adventure yet!

Cake Smash

A baby’s first birthday party wouldn’t be complete without a smash cake would it? Something simple and not too intricate like this one would be perfect (after all, it’s just going to wind up all over their hands – and face, hair, feet, probably the floor and walls and…well, you get the idea)

Cake Princess

I love this Princess cake – subtly celebrating some of Disney’s most beloved characters and movies! I also enjoy that it’s not over the top frilly or glittery or extra girly – its classy and fit for royalty!

Cake Shower

And of course – I HAVE to mention the cupcakes my mother in law made for my own amazing baby shower (yeah, those are brownie Mickeys in them – aren’t they amazing?!)

Ok – so let’s be real here – not everyone is as crafty as my mother in law (like me, for example…), but luckily, most grocery store bakeries have the ability to add some Disney magic to their sheet cakes – with designs like Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Pooh and Friends, and yes – even Frozen – this means everyone can enjoy some Disney cake on their Birthday!

Ok – now I really want cake. That’s acceptable for breakfast right?

Frozen – I don’t Get It. Still.

Frozen

I have written about how I gave the movie Frozen two chances – I watched it twice and I will admit I definitely appreciated it more the second time – HOWEVER – I will also admit – I still do NOT understand Frozen. The popularity/hype/intensity – people are seriously obsessed with this movie – and it’s not just kids either – adults are jumping on the bandwagon too!

Waiting 5 hours to meet Anna and Elsa at the Disney Parks. A New Frozen ride at Disney. Thousands of parodies of “Let It Go” on YouTube. “Sexy” Frozen Halloween Costumes (yeah, that’s really a thing), the MOST INSANE amount of merchandising I have ever seen for a single movie in my whole life…it all seems…excessive, and I fear I may stand alone on this one – but I just don’t get it.

Now – don’t get me wrong, I love a good Disney movie – but in my book – Frozen barely qualifies as a “good” movie – I mean, it’s cute, the songs are great, the characters are somewhat amusing – but overall – mediocre at best. It certainly can’t hold a flame to Cinderella (my absolute fave!), or Toy Story, or Finding Nemo…I could go on (but I won’t). I am glad that Disney is getting so much mileage out of Frozen, and that it was such a hit for them – but really? I’m over it. I am sorry if this offends you….and if it does then maybe you should learn to “Let It Go” (ha!), Seriously though – Disney – can we move on to something bigger and better? Please? I would appreciate it – and I can’t be alone in thinking that way…right?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: Have Some FROZEN Fun This Summer!

Ok, I will admit – I did NOT love the movie Frozen the first time I saw it, and I didn’t understand the hype – the millions of kids singing “let it go”, the mad rush and frenzy for Elsa and Anna costumes, the 300 minute wait at Disney World to greet the Princesses – it all seemed a bit excessive to me. But, I figured – I should give the movie another chance, maybe I am missing something?

I watched it again, and while I can’t say I will be jumping in that long line to greet the stars of the movie, I DID really like it more the second time! I liked it so much that I started seeking out some treats and treasures based on the blockbuster hit…
