1. fantasmic-five-fridayI was browsing through Twitter the other day when I saw a blog challenge that really caught my eye… Julie Issac (@WritingSpirit) is hosting a 111-day challenge called S.H.I.N.E Online.  Simple and straight-forward, all it takes is a commitment to write as many blog posts per week as you feel is reasonable for the next 111-days.  Realizing my noticable lack in blogging the past few months, I was totally game for S.H.I.N.E Online, and I’m hoping to post 4-5 times per week for the next 16 weeks (and, hopefully, beyond).
  2. With that in mind, here is what you can expect at Rays of Disneyland for the rest of January:
    • Mondays will be dedicated to sharing some of my favorite family memories from the past 20 years of Disney travels.
    • Tuesdays I’ll focus on my upcoming trip to, not Disneyland, but Disney World!  It’s been a few years since I’ve been to the parks in Orlando and I could use some advice in planning a great trip.
    • Wednesdays, as always, will remain – mostly – Wordless.
    • Thursdays in the month of January will highlight my favorite Disney moments from 2010.
    • Fridays are always Fantasmic at Rays of Disneyland! :-)
    • Saturday/ Sunday will be a day for me to tap into some of my crafty creativity, and I’ll feature some of my favorite photos and creative writing inspired by the Land.
  3. In other Fantasmic news, with the angst of 2010 behind me, I’m looking forward to making some more great Disney memories in 2011.  In fact, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that 2011 will bring a trip to both Disneyland AND Disney World, including the 2nd D23 Expo in August.
  4. While the new year promises a fresh start, life has already thrown out its share of trials… we’re only 13 days into the year and I’m already stressed and shaking my head over the amount of stress my family can have to face.
  5. I’m really looking forward to a strong year of blogging and interacting with you, the reader.  So, keep coming back for some great Disney memories and nostalgia throughout the year, and thanks so much for reading!
