Wordless Wednesday – Pink Rays of Disneyland

From the bold pink trumpet flowers bursting from the vine to the glistening drops of sunlight on the lens, this quick shot outside of Pirates of the Caribbean is one of my favorite Rays of Disneyland.

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 18th

I feel like I’ve been living in a Disney movie the past couple of weeks… no, not the fairytale, picture-perfect world kind… the “for every laugh there should be a tear” kind.  Just a lot of sad and stressful situations lately and a lot of things I can’t fix, change, or heal. However, I did […]

Happy St. Patty’s Day from The Little Man of Disneyland

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I found this little gem from the D23 Destination D: Disneyland ’55 convention.  The Little Man of Disneyland children’s book was a rare souvenir from the early days of Disneyland.  In this funny little story, Mickey shows a little Leprechaun the lay of the Land.  The Little Man even […]

Wordless Wednesday – Storyteller’s Cafe

Trip Planning Tuesday – Calling All Disney World Foodies!

Calling all WDW foodies!  The plans have officially been made, and, this summer, myself and six of the greatest people in my life will embark upon our best adventure yet.  But, now comes the real fun… planning the meals, of course!  There’s nothing quite like dining at a drive-in movie, in mom’s kitchen, or while […]

Disney Antique Treasures Update – Orange Bird

I had so much fun sharing my last round of Disney treasures from the antique store, that I just had to follow-up with an AWESOME find that I got at a thrift store this weekend.  The best part of finding treasures at the thrift store is that they aren’t priced like treasures. 🙂  Sitting out […]

Why I Love… New Orleans Square

With Fat Tuesday coming up tomorrow, and the conclusion of the Mardi Gras celebration at Disneyland last weekend, it seemed like an appropriate time to bring back the “Why I Love…” series, with a look at New Orleans Square. I’ve never been to New Orleans, but being a fan of all things jazz, I’ve always […]

Fantasmic Five Friday – March 4, 2011

My Vinylmation obsession collection is reaching all new heights with the many new releases hitting 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, […]

Wordless Wednesday – Captain Jack

Although widely debated among Disney Purists, the addition of Captain Jack Sparrow to Pirates of the Caribbean remains one of my favorite attraction “plussings.”
