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!


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!

Sittin’ Pretty With These Disney Beauty Products

From food to apparel to jewelry to fabric patterns – Disney does it ALL – and they have even recently forayed into the world of BEAUTY products too!

  Beauty Display DStore 



The “Beautifully Disney” Line of products is available at the Disney Store, and it features eye, lip, nail, and face products – and some super cute bags to store them in too! Check out the line of products available here

Beauty Ariel 2

Beauty Ariel

“Makeup For Your Inner Princess” is the tagline Sephora uses to describe their line of Disney Princess themed makeup products. They are currently featuring a Little Mermaid line of products – “The Ariel Collection” – all lines are limited edition, and each feature a specific Disney Princess, so if Ariel’s your fave, you better jump on these while they are still available!

Not sure how you can get that “Princess” look? Then check out some awesome makeup tutorials on You Tube – like this one that will help you achieve the Rapunzel look, a la Tangled! There are plenty more available too (check out the list to the right of the Tangled tutorial video)

Beauty Bonne BellAnd for those little Disney lovers in your life, who aren’t *quite* old enough for the eyeshadows and dark nail polishes, you can always get them stocked up on fun Bonne Bell products (like lip glosses!) that are available at most grocery stores and Walmart/Target, that come in Princess and Minnie/Daisy varieties (…I may or may not have a few of these in my purse right now…)

I can’t think of a better gift for a Disney lover than some Disney themed Nail or Lip products – I know I would love it…and my birthday is coming up…hmm… 

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Going “Under The Sea” With The Little Mermaid

There have been a lot of changes around Walt Disney World lately – many of them can be seen in the New Fantasyland, where you will find Ariel and her friends come to life on the ride “Under The Sea – Journey Of The Little Mermaid


Eric Castle


You enter the ride through Prince Eric’s Castle, and board a “shell” to take your journey

Ride Ariel

Kiss The Girl

Dancing FIsh

Where else but WDW can you ride through the sea and see mermaid, a prince, and dancing fish all in one place?


After you are done with your voyage, head over to Ariel’s Grotto and meet the Mermaid herself!

I personally cannot WAIT to check out this area and the ride when I head to WDW in December – The Little Mermaid is a classic from my childhood that I watched over and over – and seeing it come to life would be a dream come true!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – New Attractions Means More Shopping at WDW!

I have mentioned some updates and details on the Fantasyland Expansion, and of course any time Disney opens a new ride or Park, they have to have tons of awesome merchandise to go along with it!

One of the movies being showcased in the new Fantasyland is The Little Mermaid (a personal favorite and a classic from my own childhood!), and so I can’t wait to purchase some of these goodies, including an actual dinglehopper!

Beauty And The Beast is now a huge focus of Fantasyland too, and these souvenir cups are great ways to bring a piece of the magic home with you (and to of course enjoy a delicious beverage in as well!)


I personally can’t wait to visit the new Fantasyland next September and see all the amazing changes that are being made! What about you – are you looking forward to checking it out?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Little Mermaid Makes A Splash At WDW’s Newest Resort

I know I have talked about the new Art Of Animation Resort before, and I honestly can’t stop saying enough good things about it! It’s Walt Disney World’s newest Value Level Resort, and it has been opening in phases, the Finding Nemo, Lion King, and Cars themed areas have already opened, and as of tomorrow, September 15th, the 4th and final phase of the Resort will be open to the public – the Little Mermaid area! This area is the only area comprised of standard rooms – the other 3 areas of the Resort are comprised of family suites.

I personally am VERY excited to stay here, in the Little Mermaid area, as I love the movie and am thrilled about the whole theming of this new Resort!

Today is also a special day in my book – it is exactly 1 year from today that I will be heading back to WDW! My husband and I will be staying at the Art of Animation Resort, and can’t wait to get that “Under The Sea” feeling these new rooms are sure to deliver! Check out more on this Resort at Disney’s Art Of Animation Page

Disney Announces Opening Date For The New Fantasyland!


Amid all the anticipation, the waiting, the not knowing – it’s all over! Disney announced this week that they will be opening up the new portions of Fantasyland in WDW’s Magic Kingdom on December 6, 2012!

My husband enjoying his ride on the new Dumbo!

Part of the new Fantasyland is already open (including Dumbo the flying elephant and Goofy’s Barnstormer!), and I had the good fortune to be able to check it out and take a ride on Dumbo in April!

“So what’s new?” I know when I heard they were opening Fantasyland on Dec 6, I wanted to know what attractions I could look forward to! Here is what will be opening as of December 6:
-Under the Sea~Journey of the Little Mermaid: Enter Prince Eric’s castle, board a giant clamshell and rock out on this new musical attraction
-Enchanted Tales with Belle: Become part of a lively retelling of the “tale as old as time,” hosted by Belle and Lumière
-Ariel’s Grotto: Take photos and get autographs with everyone’s favorite undersea princess

As if that isn’t enough, they also confirmed they are going to be opening the much anticipated Be Our Guest restaurant on that day as well, which will include counter service lunch and a table service dinner, served inside the Beast’s Castle (themed after Disney’s Beauty and the Beast – one of my personal faves!)

Check out the Disney Parks Blog for more information and updates on the new Fantasyland!

I don’t know about you, but I personally am most excited about the Be Our Guest Restaurant, and will probably try and eat there for lunch AND dinner next time I am in Walt Disney World!
