Wordless Wednesday – Mickey Mouse

Thanks, once again, to Deb at Focused on the Magic for hosting the Disney Wordless Wednesday blog hop!  This week’s theme is Mickey Mouse… I have lots of pics of Mickey, but this one, perhaps because of its fun interpretation, really stuck out for me.  Vinylmation might just be my favorite incarnation of Mickey!  This, [...]

Happy Halloween from Rays of Disneyland!

Its finally the day when Grim Grinning Ghosts dress up like little kids and parade themselves through otherwise peaceful neighborhoods, stirring up mischief and mayhem wherever they roam… This is Halloween! Before the Trick or Treaters are at your doorstep, here are a few fun tips for bringing the Magic of a Disneyland Halloween home [...]

Adventures in Vinylmation

Before I joined Instagram for iPhone, I thought Vinylmation were mearly meant to be displayed, dusted, and generally just looked at.  Who knew that there was a whole wonderful world of Vinylmation photography out there?  Well, I do now, and I have to say, as silly as it may seen, I enjoy seeing the fun [...]

The Magic of Friendship

This post falls in the category of Not Quite Disney But… when you live 1,000 miles away from the Magic, it’s always special to find a little bit of the Magic in the everyday.  So, while the title of this post might be a bit cliche, it is definitely true.  I spent the day with [...]

Trip Report Thursday – My D23 Expo Highlights

Disney World Trip Report – Day 1

After three-plus years of sitting on my Disney Bucket List, the day had come to check one off the list… Disney World with my best friend and her family was gleaming in the early-morning Orlando sun like a field of pixie dust encrusted wishes.  After a near-midnight plane touch-down, we were a slightly bleary-eyed group [...]

Bitten By the Vinylmation Bug

When I first saw a Vinylmation figure on-line, almost two and a half years ago, I thought, how silly!  Who would ever want something so strange? When I saw them in person about a year later, I thought, well, those are actually kind of cute, maybe I’ll get one.  At the end of that trip, [...]

Fantasmic Five Friday – March 4, 2011

My Vinylmation obsession collection is reaching all new heights with the many new releases hitting DisneyStore.com lately.  But, my favorite piece arrived yesterday… the 9″ Retro Disneyland vinyl, part of the Park #5 series.  I LOVE this vinyl.  The colorful blocks remind me of the light-up wall at the now-long-gone Fantasy Waters show at Disneyland Hotel, [...]

Fantasmic Five Friday – February 4, 2011

It’s the first week of my new promotion at work and so far, so good.  It’s a nice change of pace from what I had been doing for the company. I’m going “treasure” hunting today at a huge antique store in Denver… I can’t wait to see what Disney treasures I will find.  Stay tuned [...]
