The Sweet Smells of Disney

We were having a discussion at work this week about what fun would smell like.  It was actually quite the debate… even to the point of the philosophical question, “If you didn’t know if fun would smell like cotton candy or a locker room, would you still want fun to have a specified smell?”  Oh [...]

Sleepless Nights and Disneyland Audio

For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you probably know about my recent health issues and frequent trips to the doctor for vitamin B12 injections.  Ironically, one of the symptoms that led me to give in to going to the doctor was that I can’t sleep at night but I can’t stay awake [...]

Disneyland Fireworks and a Pile of Dogs

It’s hard to be a Disney fan(atic) living nearly 1000 miles from the magic.  I have my Disneyland CDs to help pass the time between visits, not to mention the myriad of websites out there that seem to bring the magic and encapsulated in my 15 inch monitor… but nothing compares to the little treat [...]

Why I Love… Downtown Disney

Stream of Consciousness Style Walking, walking, tired feet… it is so worth it! Down the chilly hall and the out the door… such a beautiful stained glass window high above the courtyard. Through the gates and out into a twinkling wonderland. Lights are strung like pixie dust through the trees. Loud music, somehow blends in [...]

Feed the Birds…

I’ve found in writing these posts that there are so many small Disney moments that mean so much to me. When you put them all together they truly add up to the Disney experience that is so close to my heart. Last April when I was visiting the Disneyland Resort, one morning breakfast was dedicated [...]

Disneyland Showtime… The Osmonds Visit the Park

While I’m still trying to get my life back to normal, I found this video on YouTube.  Disneyland Showtime is by far my favorite vintage Disney special.  The following video shows Kurt Russell talking about the making of the Haunted Mansion (which the special was promoting) and the Osmonds, Russell and EJ Peaker from Hello [...]

All it Takes is Faith and Trust… and Just a Little Bit of Pixie Dust

Sometimes the best Disney memories are the ones created by our loved ones.  I had the chance to spend some time tonight with some of my favorite cousins.  Unfortunately, they live too far away to see too often, but that makes our infrequent visits even more special.  We were talking about Disneyland this evening and [...]

Child-less at the Disney Character Buffet

I love watching childrens’ eyes light up when they meet their favorite character for the first time, the tenth time, even the 100th time… it never gets old for kids.  There is always a sense of amazement and wonder for them when Mickey walks down Main Street or Cinderella comes to their dinner table.  Well, [...]

The Fourth of July… Disney Style

When I was young I hated fireworks… really hated them… then I went to Disneyland.  When I was eight-years-old I saw Disney fireworks for the first time… I didn’t hate them anymore.  No one could believe that the little girl that cried at loud noise and couldn’t make it through a whole fireworks show was [...]

It’s a Wall-E Weekend After All

Take a beautiful Rocky Mountain Saturday; a group of closest and dearest friends; a new, wonderful, politically-charged Disney-Pixar animated movie and, chances are, you’ve found a recipe for pure magic… even outside of Disneyland. While Wall-E definitely proved to be one of my all-time favorite Disney-Pixar efforts, it sometimes is the magic of the moment [...]
