Fantasmic Five Friday – July 15, 2011

It’s really nice to be back up and running here at Rays of Disneyland.  If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen the week-long battle I fought to retrieve this domain from… wait for it… The Redemption Process… *cue lightning and dramatic organ music*  Yep, should you ever find yourself on a blog [...]

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 [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

Fantasmic Five Friday – SHINE Online Edition

I 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 [...]

Fantasmic Five Friday

Well, I’m half-way done with my “mandatory vacation” and, just like regular vacation, it has gone entirely too fast.  I spent a lot of the week deciding if I could afford an impromptu visit to Disneyland next week, but, while I might have been able to swing it with a hefty credit card charge, I [...]

Fantasmic Five Friday

My boss made a bit of an “error” and miscalculated my remaining vacation time after my Disneyland trip… instead of no days, I actually have eight days.  So, I am having to take the next two weeks off with paid vacation.  Not a bad gig, but with a little advance notice I could have planned [...]

Fantasmic Five Friday

I haven’t picked up my copy of Beauty and the Beast Diamond edition, but I did have the awesome opportunity to see the Sing-a-Long version on the big screen last week.  It was so great!  I’ve always wanted to be able to sing-along with reckless abandon to Disney movies at the theater! I love when [...]

Fantasmic Five Friday

Well, it has been quite a week around here and a great time to recap it all in a Fantasmic Five Friday! I’ve been reading lots of reports about all the rain at Disneyland and thinking about how cranky one day of moderate rain made me during my last trip… YIKES! I would hate to [...]

Fantasmic Five Friday – In Need of a Little Pixie Dust

I feel the need for a serious dose of pixie dust this week… wouldn’t it be great if the doctor could prescribe that?  Instead of tests and needles and dead-ends, they just give you a little sprinkle of pixie dust and everything is okay again. I was diagnosed this week with Fibromyalgia.  I don’t even [...]
