T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Those Movies Are HOW Old?

I was reading recently on the Disney Parks Blog that the Lion King turned 21, and that Pocahontas turned 20 – hard to believe, as I remember when both of these first came out, and I remember going to see The Lion King in theaters!

Got me to thinking – how old are some of the other Animated Disney Classics?

SnowWhite

Snow White is the oldest – originally released in theaters in 1937

Cinderella

My absolute favorite Disney movie – Cinderella – first graced the big screen in 1950. Hard to believe that it was that long ago, isn’t it?

AliceInWonderland

Followed the next year by Alice In Wonderland in 1951

TheLittleMermaid

Jump ahead a little to this classic – released in 1989 – 26 years ago

Disney's Beauty and the Beast (1991)

This “Tale as old as time” came out in 1991

TheLionKing

In 1994 I was 10 – and vividly remember seeing this at the movies

Wreck-It-Ralph

2012 brought us the release of Wreck-It Ralph – which didn’t get much publicity as it should have in my opinion – I loved this movie!

INside Out

Disney’s newest movie was released just last week to rave reviews – will YOU be heading to see Inside Out?

These Disney Classics have stood the test of time, and I can’t wait to see what else they come up with!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Feeling That (Disney) Love In The Air!

 

  Vday MM

Happy Valentine’s Day To One And All! To many this may be an annoying day full of overpriced flowers and pink hearts, but I personally have always loved Valentine’s Day – a day to express your love, or to reveal a new love, or to rekindle with an old love!

For all you Valentine’s Day cynics out there, might I suggest a Disney movie or two to help remind you how grand love is?

Vday ARiel

Who didn’t cry for joy when Ariel finally got to kiss Eric?

Vday Lion

Who didn’t tear up at this scene from the Lion King while “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” swelled in the background?

Vday Walle

Robots have feelings too – Wall-E reminded us of that!

UP

Oh Lord the first 15 minutes of this movie had me in tears, and I love the overall message about fulfilling your dreams

Vday Cindy

And my personal favorite Disney movie of all time – Cinderella – which proves that a great pair of shoes really CAN chance your life

Hope these were a nice little reminder of just how powerful love can be!

Landscape Of Flavors Offers Delicious Fresh Menu Options For All!

My family and I were lucky enough to get to travel to Walt Disney World last month for Christmas, and even luckier still to get to stay in the NEWEST Disney Resort – The Art of Animation Resort. Let me tell you, this place did NOT disappoint, the Little Mermaid/Finding Nemo/Lion King/Cars themes were awesome, the service was great as usual, and probably the best thing about the Resort is its Landscape of Flavors Food Court – which offers up tons of great and unique menu options. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect to find here:

Breakfast: Omelete station, pancakes, Mickey Waffles, French toast, make your own yogurt/fruit/granola parfait, breakfast sandwiches (like this “steak” sandwich, and the chicken sausage sandwich!) breakfast platters (both American AND Mongolian!), and tons of bakery and packaged choices (fruits, yogurts, etc)

Lunch/Dinner: Create your own salad station (a personal favorite of mine!), Mongolian grill, hamburgers/sandwiches, pizza/pasta (and cheesy pesto bread yum!), plus packaged items like salads, sandwiches, and sushi

Desserts: There’s a bakery case that was offering some delicious seasonal options while we were there – sugar free cranberry apple pie, Pecan pumpkin tart, Gingerbread cookies, and then there were also cupcakes and other cookies, and then there’s the gelato station – serving up tons of great flavors (including seasonal ones like peppermint and pumpkin!). Or you can go a bit healthier and have a fruit smoothie whipped up just the way you like it (strawberry/banana/mango comes to mind? Yum!)

Drinks: They offer the standard Coca Cola soda machines (which offer Sprite Zero in addition to Diet Coke and light lemonade, which I was glad to see!), as well as plenty of bottled choices: waters, Gatorade/Vitamin water, smoothies, juices, and a decent selection of beer and wine too (available by the single serving, or full size bottles/six packs are available too!)

Our personal favorites from the Landscape of Flavors? It’s REALLY a tough call, but for me personally it had to be the Pumpkin Pecan Tart (which I got multiple times!) and I know my parents really loved the Cranberry Apple Pie, and my husband loved the Mongolian Sausage plate – which was delicious sausage served with rice, two sides, and fresh naan bread

We will definitely be staying here again, partly (ok, largely!) due to how amazing the food was! I would highly recommend the Resort (and its food!) to anyone and everyone!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Brings Art To Life At It’s New Resort

Disney is always striving to improve their guest’s vacation experience, and one way they do this is by opening new Resorts for guests to enjoy. Their newest resort, the Art of Animation Resort, will be opening in phases, starting with family suites later this month and by the end of 2012 all rooms will be open. The rooms will be themed after famous Disney movies: Cars, The Little Mermaid, Finding Nemo, and The Lion King

The Kitchen area in a Cars themed Suite

A Standard room – Little Mermaid themed!

The Resort’s Main Pool Area

I think one reason people adults may initially dismiss the Value Resorts is that they are kind of tacky, with their giant decor everywhere, and they seem more for families than for adults/couples. This is true to a point, in that they are geared towards families (especially with the family suites being the focus of this new resort), but adults can still enjoy their stay at these resorts – King beds can be requested instead of the standard doubles, and there are many quiet spots to take a stroll at the Value Resorts. Personally, I love them, you can’t beat the price, and the food courts are always serving up delicious eats!

The Food Court at Art Of Animation

I plan on staying at the Art Of Animation Resort next September and I can’t wait! I am excited to see what they did with all the decor and the food court is supposed to be amazing, new and different foods than the other Value food courts

So if you love Cars/Finding Nemo/The Lion King/The Little Mermaid, or if you just love the idea of staying in a brand new Resort, I highly recommend you check out Disney’s Art of Animation Resort!

TGIF!
