1. fantasmic-five-fridayMy 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, and the dynamic retro illustrations of Disneyland are really awesome.  Look for a post about more of my Vinylmations sometime next week.
  2. I’ve been on a Princess and the Frog kick lately… I just can’t get enough.  The music can be heard blasting from my iPhone pretty reguarly, and the movie is a favorite on my days off.  Disney Retro VinylmationAnd, yes, I cry EVERYtime at the end.  It really is a lovely movie and a renaissance of sorts for Walt Disney Animation, as they returned to their roots in hand-drawn animation and really brought this one home.
  3. Plans continue to progress for my big Disney World trip in June.  I’ll be posting another trip planning post on Tuesday and asking for your help in compiling a list of great Disney World restaurants for kids and adults alike.  Start thinking about your favorites!
  4. The new season of American Idol is in full swing and, so far, I think it is one of the best seasons ever.  I love the new flavor of the show, and it gives me hope that the American Idol Experience at Disney World wasn’t built as errantly as I once thought.
  5. I’m excited that I already have some posts in the works for next week… hopefully March will be a busy month here at Rays of Disneyland, and I hope you can join me for the ride!
