T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – 29 Years Of Movies And Fun!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been taking guest on a journey through the movies for over 29 years – in fact, on May 1st the Park celebrated it’s 29th anniversary!

MGM1

“The World you have entered was created by The Walt Disney Company and is dedicated to Hollywood—not a place on a map, but a state of mind that exists wherever people dream and wonder and imagine, a place where illusion and reality are fused by technological magic. We welcome you to a Hollywood that never was—and always will be.” – Michael Eisner said this during his speech on the day the park opened – back then it was called “Disney’s MGM Studios” – and some of us old timers (like myself will probably always call it that)

In honor of the Park celebrating 29 years, here’s a look back on some of my favorite Hollywood Studios moments:

Here’s to many, many more memories – especially as Hollywood Studios undergoes some MAJOR construction to bring some awesome new things this year and next – like Toy Story Land and Star Wars Land

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The #PurpleWall Gets A Makeover

I LOVE TAKING SELFIES – and I don’t care who knows it. Is it a silly thing to do? Yes. Do I care – NOPE not even a little. I never pass up a good opportunity for a selfie – and there are PLENTY of those opportunities at WDW!

I recently wrote about some of the best places to take selfies at Walt Disney World – and I am just dying to try them all out when I head there with my family this fall.

Recently, one of the most popular WDW selfie spots – the #PurpleWall at the entrance to Tomorrowland – got a facelift that has been creating some serious buzz in the Disney World:

Here’s what it used to look like before it’s re-do

And here’s the new (and improved) #PurpleWall

Purple6

Oh and don’t worry – there is still a plain purple section for all you #PurpleWall purists out there

Purple2

…Same though. I’m coming for you this fall, #PurpleWall

Oh and for you #PurpleWall fans – you can even get a custom Magic Band to declare your Purple Wall love to the world

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Top Travel Accessories – Adult Edition!

Last week I talked about my top picks for Toddler Travel Accessories – and this week I figured now that I have my little guy covered, why not pick out some great stuff that I can use, too? Here are my top travel accessory picks for adults:

AdultTravel1

A neck pillow is a must when traveling on an airplane, but this one really takes it to the next level – the hood would be perfect for blocking out all the light and some of the noise, too!

AdultTravel2

Counter space is at a premium in most hotels – so keep all your little bottles and toiletries organized in this carrier which conveniently hangs right on the door/shower rod/closet rod

AdultTravel3

Ok and stay with me on this one – I know it’s SUPER nerdy looking – but this Travel wallet straps right to you and can help keep the things most important to you (passports/phone/credit cards/ID’s) close by and safe

Then there’s this amazing new Mickey Phone Kickstand I just got – I know it’s not really a “travel” accessory but it gets an honorable mention as it will certainly get used a lot during my trip (yes – there will be a LOT of selfies taken during this vacation!)

These will all come in SUPER handy when my family and I head to Disney World this fall

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Easter Activities For The Whole Family!

Last week I talked about some Disney Easter Basket Stuffers that would be perfect any and all of the Disney Lovers in your life – and today I wanted to kind of continue the Easter fun – with some Disney Easter Activities:

In my opinion, the best activities are the edible ones – and this super cute Springtime Mickey Bark is an easy, delicious treat to throw together and bring to your family’s Easter Brunch

Easter Page

A fun one for the kids is this Disney Easter Activity Page – this and some crayons will keep the little ones busy and occupied while you hide the Easter Eggs and Baskets!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Stroller Dilemma – SOLVED!

I recently wrote about how my family and I are headed to Walt Disney World this fall, and that I couldn’t decide what to do about possibly bringing a stroller along for my son (who will be nearly 4 when we go)

Well – I am excited to announce that the STROLLER DILEMMA HAS BEEN SOLVED! Meet the GB Pockit Stroller

stroller3

It is the “World’s Smallest Folding Stroller” – With its innovative two-step folding design, the Pockit is the 2014 Guiness World Records most compact stroller folding down to 11.8” x 7” x 13.8” and a weight of 9.5 pounds

stroller1

I was SO PUMPED to get it out of the box and test it out – truth be told I could not figure it out easily so I had to watch a YouTube tutorial – but just a couple minute video was all I needed to get it up and running

stroller2

It holds up to 55 pounds (which is good as my son is not a small boy – he’s almost 40 lbs already!), and is a comfortable height for myself and my (super tall!) husband to push. This thing fits easily into a regular old backpack that we had laying around – and it is going to be the PERFECT THING to bring along to Disney World. No leaving it outside of rides, no pushing around an empty stroller if the kid wants to walk, no gate checking it at the airport – none of that. And I am SO EXCITED ABOUT IT!

Oh – and just in case you were wondering – the stroller company did not in ANY way sponsor this post AT ALL (sorta wish they would have – maybe I would have gotten a discount then – as these do NOT come cheap – but I was lucky enough to score a good deal on Amazon for it!) – I am legit just THAT excited about being able to bring this stroller along that I wanted to share it with you – who knows maybe it will solve your “to bring or not to bring a stroller?” dilemma too?!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – #AllTheHats

One of the best parts about Walt Disney World is all the amazing stuff they have for sale there – the souvenir shops are everywhere, and they sell all kinds of things – one of my favorite things to browse (and take selfies in!) is the selection of hats – specifically Mickey Ear Hats!

DSC01200

This picture dates way back to 2007 – when I visited Disneyland, and discovered they still made this relic from my childhood – I begged my parents for one of these when I was 4, and they finally caved and bought it for me – it was so heavy that it weighed my head down as I fell asleep on the monorail after a long day of Park fun. **Side note – they are now MUCH lighter and wearer-friendly

IMG_6495IMG_6596IMG_6633

What can I say, I love trying on hats! From the classic Minnie sequins, to the wild Animal prints – they really have a style for everyone – and I can’t wait to check out the what they have when I head there this fall!
