EPCOT Celebrates The Big 3-0!

 

Walt Disney World’s 2nd theme park opened on October 1st, 1982, and it’s letters stand for “Experimental Prototype Community Of Tomorrow”, and Walt designed it to represent a ‘conceptual utopian city of the future’ – and it was originally designed to be a city itself, but when Walt passed, the idea changed into a Park that would embody the ideals and values of Walt’s “Epcot city”

 

Guests who were lucky enough to visit Epcot today received a special commemorative button and guide map. For more information about the celebration happening at Epcot check out the Disney Parks Blog
Personally, I have grown to appreciate Epcot more as an adult – the culture of the World Showcase (and the adult beverages offered there too!), and rides like Spaceship Earth and The Land that would have been boring as a kid are actually really fascinating to me now!

 

Happy Birthday Epcot – and here’s to many, many more!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – World Of Color Shines At Disneyland

 

As you may know (or can tell from this blog!), I am a huge Walt Disney World Fan. I love everything about it, and would live there if I could! Occasionally though, my mind does wander to thoughts of Disneyland, Walt Disney’s first original Theme Park.

They have some amazing attractions at Disneyland, and one thing that sets them apart is their World Of Color show – a truly amazing water and laser light spectacular put on nightly at Disney’s California Adventure Park. Watch Disney characters come to life with music and effects that are trule breathtaking!

As if this show isn’t awesome enough, Disney has come out with their Glow With The Show Ear Hats which are Mickey ear hats featuring light up ears, and when worn at the World of Color show, they sync to the music and the colors change along with the show (which has got to be one of the coolest things I have ever heard of!)

My husband and I are planning a trip to Disneyland for September of 2014, which we are very excited about for a few reasons – it wll be his first trip to Disneyland (and his first trip to the West Coast!), and we can’t wait to see Space Mountain and The Haunted Mansion all decorated for Halloween, plus we can’t wait to see all the amazing things in store for us at Disney’s California Adventure.

The biggest reason I can’t wait to go is that Disneyland Park is the ONLY Disney park that Walt himself got to see completed. The Man Behind The Mouse walked the streets of Disneyland, and that is truly something, that by itself is reason enough to go!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Disneyland Of Yesterday

As you may or may not know, Disneyland Park celebrated its 57th Anniversary on Tuesday, July 17
The Park has been bringing fun and magic to millions of people ever since it opened it’s doors in 1955, and so I thought it might be fun to take a look back at what the park was like when it opened.
Besides being fun and nostalgic, and a great reminder of how far they have come since then!

Happy 57th Birthday Disneyland!

 

Today on July 17, 2012, Disneyland Park in California celebrates its 57th Anniversary! It was on this day in 1955 that Walt Disney spoke these words:

“To all who come to this happy place: Welcome. Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America, with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration to all the world.”

Disneyland is an amazing place, I have been blessed enough to visit it once, and am planning on visiting it again in the next few years (especially because I can’t wait to check out Cars Land and Disney California Adventure!)

Check out this article for more disneyland info and facts, and check out the official Disneyland Website to see what’s so great about this place!

Happy Birthday Disneyland, and here’s to MANY many more!

T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week – Disney Devotion At It’s Finest – The Disney Tattoo

Some of us love Walt Disney World so much that we want to show the world through tattoos!

…And I am proud to say that as of last weekend, I am a member of the Disney Tattoo club

The quote is a famous Walt Disney quote written in his signature script, and I came up with the design with the stars and Mickey/Minnie heads, and the tattoo artist added the shading. Overall, I really love it!

It may seem crazy to get something like this tattooed on your body, but to me, it’s really meaningful, and this tattoo represents a lot – all of the amazing vacations and memories I have from childhood of trips to Walt Disney World, the fact that it’s my favorite place in the world, and the fact that the quote is inspirational, and it reminds me that you have to keep dreaming and keep believing in yourself!
