T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Gear Up For Halloween With These Awesome (Disney!) Costumes!

Halloween is JUST around the corner, and if your house is anything like mine, you’ve been decorating and getting ready to celebrate with candy, costumes, and fun! Speaking of costumes – it’s really the best part of Halloween isn’t it? Getting to dress up as literally anything else you want to dress up as for one whole day? It’s so fun to dress up, and as a parent it’s even more fun to see your kids choose a costume and act the part and really get into the Halloween Spirit!

If your kid is a big Disney/Marvel fan (like mine is!) Then the Disney Store has you covered – with a TON of costume options – Princesses, Superheroes, and everything in between!

Costumes1

Buzz Lightyear and Spiderman are just a few of the offerings for little boys – mine would LOVE to go dressed as either one for Halloween!

If you tend to be more of the procrastinating type, OR if your little one suddenly changes their mind LAST minute and you need to get something under a time crunch – don’t worry, you still have PLENTY of Disney-themed options available to you at stores like Target and Wal-Mart (like these adorable options!)

Happy Costume Hunting – and TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney-fy’d Tech Accessories

As an avid Disney Lover I am always looking for new ways to express my love and devotion to all things Disney – and one of the ways I have found that’s really awesome is through Tech accessories – there are TONS of great Disney ones out there!

DisneyTech

There are plenty of licensed ones available via The Disney Store – including Iphone cases, tablet cases/carriers, and headphones

Charger-Wrappers-600x315

Check out these awesome Charger Wrappers Here

MickeyEarsCase

That’s right – even your Apple Watch can get in on the Disney action – I personally just ordered these Mickey Ear Apple watch cases and am LOVING it so far:

Amazing. Goes perfectly with my Disney Alex and Ani!!

I love the fact that I can add some Disney flair to my devices – nothing screams “I LOVE DISNEY” more than Mickey ears on your watch!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Disney Store I Remember

When I was a kid (not to sound old, but – might as well say “back in MY day”…), the mall was quite the place to go – the 90’s were certainly a height of the “mall” era – and it was always packed full of people shopping for anything and everything – that perfect gift, new shoes, back to school clothes – you name it, the mall had it. And one thing they had that I always, always had to check out was of course the DISNEY STORE. They had it ALL – toys, movies, a TON of stuffed animals, and of course – DISNEY movies playing all day every day!

The oh-so-90’s look of the old Disney Stores – I LOVED the Mickey “film strip” style border

DisneyStore6

There were adorable animated scenes depicted in the store windows

DisneyStore4

Even more characters awaited you inside the store

DisneySTore3

THE STUFFED ANIMAL MOUNTAIN!!! The best part! It was always a mess but was still always amazing anyway

Disney Store5

OMG that carpet – haha – it was something, wasn’t it?

DisneyStore1

Pooh – meeting and greeting fans with hugs outside the Disney Store at MY local mall!

This is the pic that actually inspired this post – I was going through some old photos and found this – they used to have characters come to the Disney Store, and I remember standing in line to meet Mickey, Minnie, and Pooh too (this one was taken when our local Disney Store opened back in the early 90’s)

The more modern Disney Store design we see in today’s malls

The Disney Store is still a magical place – but it’s WAY different than I remember. The magic is still there though – and kids still LOVE it – the stuffed animals, the movies and music playing, the fun lighting and décor – even though it’s changed, I still wish we had one at our mall (sadly it closed years ago). These days, not only are Disney Stores closing more than they are opening, but malls themselves are kind of going by the wayside – as people buy a TON online now (myself included!). Ordering online from the Disney Store’s website is pretty great – they have TONS of stuff, and are always running deals/specials – but let’s face it, it’s just not the same as going into the store and picking it out yourself.

Ah, well – times change, and while it’s fun to reminisce – I have to admit, online shopping is convenient, and can be fun in it’s own way, too! What about you – Are you lucky enough to still have a Disney Store in your local mall? Or do you prefer to get your Disney fix online (like me!)?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney-Themed Mother’s Day Ideas

Hard to believe it’s already May, isn’t it? But here we are – another Spring upon us – the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, the rain is falling (depending on where you live, it may be falling a LOT), and the temperature is slowly inching upward. Spring brings with it plenty of great things to look forward to – picnics, long strolls around the neighborhood, playing outside, longer days, and of course – Mother’s Day! In case you didn’t know, Mother’s Day is May 10th this year (yeah, as in NEXT SUNDAY!) – but don’t worry if you haven’t gotten a gift for mom yet, because I’ve got some great ideas for you (with a DISNEY flair, of course!)

Mday Frame

Photos are always a great gift for mom – a framed memory of a great Disney trip perhaps? These frames are great because they can be personalized, but there are plenty of other choices too – check out the Photos and Memories section of the Disney Store online for a whole bunch of album and frame options

7501002529714

What woman doesn’t love receiving jewelry as a gift? This set is really affordable, but if you’re looking for something a bit fancier, don’t worry – The Disney Store has got you covered there, too

Mday Vera

Vera Bradley bags and accessories are super popular right now – so if your mom is a fan, then I suggest you check out the Disney Vera Bradley Collection for a new tote or cute crossbody purse for Mom

Mday Mug

I don’t know many mothers who can survive without coffee (myself included!). Order mom a cute mug and gift it paired with a bag of her favorite brew

Mday Mom

I personally can’t wait to celebrate Mother’s Day with my mom and my little guy this year – and I really hope she likes the gift I got her, and hopefully you’re inspired by this to pick out a great Disney gift for your mom too!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Back To School Cool With Mickey (And Friends!)

Not many kids really countdown to the start of a new school year – and why would they? It signals the end of carefree sunny days spent outside playing, and the start of another year of books, assignments, and routine. There are some ways to get kids excited though – and I personally am a big fan of using a little bribery to make things go smoothly – bribery in Disney form perhaps? Why not outfit your kids with some awesome Disney school supplies that will make going back to school way more fashionable:

SChool Snack

How about an adorable snack box you can fill with treats to tide them over between school and soccer?

School StarWards

Heck, I am not going back to school but even I want this awesome stationary kit featuring the ultimate villian himself – Darth Vader

School Princess

Maybe your little princess needs a royally styled backpack to make going back to school more bearable

SChool Hoodie

I don’t know where you are, but here in Upstate NY the fall mornings can get a bit crisp – so keep them warm with a personalizable hoodie featuring their favorite character

Check out the Disney Store’s full Back to School collection here, and check out your local Wal-Mart/Target/grocery store for plenty of other Disney themed clothes, folders, pens, pencils and much more to get them into that “back to school” spirit!
