T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Enjoy Some “Not So Scary” Halloween Fun At WDW!

Halloween time is upon us! And that means pumpkins, candy, costumes, scary movies, and spooks all around! But don’t worry – if being spooked isn’t your thing, Disney has you covered – with their annual Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, an event hosted multiple nights throughout October in the Magic Kingdom – where kids (and adults!) can dress up, trick or treat, and enjoy an exclusive parade and character meet and greets.

Here are some images from this years party:

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Mickey’s Pumpkins “Earn Their Ears”

We are in the middle of my favorite time of year – fall! I absolutely LOVE the season and all that comes with it – apples, leaves, cool weather, and especially PUMPKINS! That orange squash is delicious and decorative, and has a ton of uses. One thing you may not know about pumpkins is that Walt Disney World grows their own – over in Epcot you’ll find the Living With The Land attraction – a boat ride that takes you through 4 greenhouses, where you’ll see a fish farm, as well as high tech and experimental growing techniques on display

What once needed soil to grown can now grow on trees, vines, and in water – pretty cool right?

Lemon  

Nine pound lemon anyone?

 

Cuc 

Or perhaps a Mickey shaped cucumber? This one is not quite ready, but once it is, it will be delicious (and mouse shaped!)

MickeyPumpkinHere is my favorite part – the Mickey Pumpkin! These are grown in the greenhouses, and if you look in the background you can see other pumpkins that are still growing into their Mickey shaped molds, with signs that proclaim that they are “earning their ears”!

 

The produce grown here as well as the seafood can be tasted at the two restaurants housed within the Land – Sunshine Seasons and the Garden Grill restaurant – and the pumpkins can be found in a seasonal favorite – pumpkin soup! What a perfect way to warm up on a rainy fall day – yum!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney DIY

There is so much anticipation and excitement that lead up to a Walt Disney World vacation, and once you are there it’s amazing, and fun, and exhilirating. But once it’s over, there is definitely a bit of a let down, because not only is your vacation over, but you have to leave the Happiest Place On Earth!

So how can you beat the post-Disney blues? By bringing some of the magic of Disney into your own home, of course! There are TONS of Disney DIY projects you can do that are easy, fun, and great ways to remind you of just how special Disney is!

Pin-Shadow-Box For those of you who are into Disney Pin Collecting, here’s a great way to display those pins – here are the step by step instructions on how to create this great Disney Pin display case

MickeyCookiesBake up some Disney fun with a Mickey Cookie cutter and these Chocolate Sugar Cookies – my man made them for me as a surprise, and let me tell you – it doesn’t get more delicious or cute than Mickey shaped cookies!

delicious_disney_coverThere are a few different Disney Cookbooks out there that feature recipes from the various Parks and Restaurants on Disney Property, and it’s a great way to recreate that delicious meal you had on vacation. Personally, I have this Delicious Disney book and love the graphics and recipes

GiantMickeyPumpkinDisney loves the holidays, and so do I! I love them so much I did a recreation of this giant Mickey pumpkin last year for Halloween using one big and two little pumpkins – it was actually really easy, and Mickey’s smiling face might not have been spooky, but it certainly was a great holiday addition

There are plenty of things you can do with your vacation photos too – from collages to decoupage to scrapbooks and albums – picture gifts and crafts are my personal fave, they’re the best way to relive the greatest vacation moments!
