Bits and Pieces: Disneyland during Springtime

June 1, 2022

Disneyland during SpringtimeHello and happy June! Wait…it’s June?! How are we already SIX MONTHS into 2022? I feel like 2020 was really slow (for obvious reasons) but 2021, and now 2022, went by at light-speed. Maybe it’s because I’m busier now and that’s why I feel like time is going by so fast? You know what they say, “time flys when you’re having fun.” 

Off topic but who else watched the new season of Stranger Things last Friday? It’s crazy to think season 3 came out in 2019/three years ago. I know covid prevented them from filming for a bit but that’s such a long time between seasons. Did you guys like the new season? Personally I love it and it might be my favorite season since season one.

Now onto to the actual post: Continue reading

All-Star Movies Resort Tour + Room Tour | Walt Disney World

Disney World All-Star Movies Resort Tour
Two posts this month? Go me! Y’all, I started writing this post in August 2021. AUGUST. I have been meaning to finish and post this for the longest time but life has just been so busy. But on to the post…

It’s no secret that I’m a HUGE Disney fan/lover. The Disney Parks will forever be a second home to me. Before the pandemic I was a Disney World annual passholder (despite living in Chicago) who visited the parks about every 2 months or so. In fact, at one point I was a passholder at Disney World, Disneyland and Disneyland Paris. Ah the good ole days…

Although I visited the Disney Parks like 6 or 7 times a year for years, I never stayed at a Disney hotel. (Well technically I stayed at a Disney partner hotel in Disneyland Paris and I stayed at the Contemporary Resort for one night as a kid but you know what I mean). 

During my July 2021 Disney trip, I got to stay at my “first” Disney hotel: All-Star Movies Resort! Continue reading

Bits and Pieces: Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival

April 25, 2022

Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival
Happy Monday everyone! I got back from my birthday Disneyland trip last Monday (technically Tuesday morning) so it’s the perfect time to start sharing little bits and pieces from the trip. It’s weird because normally I write my blog posts on my laptop but today I’m typing it up on my iMac so it’s a little different. I don’t use my iMac much so I’m trying to give it a little more attention. 

Any who, you all know that I love a good Epcot festival. The Festival of the Arts, the Flower and Garden Festival, the Festival of the Holidays and, of course, the Food and Wine Festival. But oddly enough, I’ve never gotten to experience a festival at DCA. So I was super excited when I learned that my birthday trip was going to fall during the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival.

Here’s a little mini recap of the 2022 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival:

Bits and Pieces: Magic Kingdom – Disney World 50th Anniversary

April 11, 2022

Magic Kingdom Disney World 50th Anniversary Cinderella Castle
I was on Pinterest the other day (yes I still love browsing Pinterest) and I saw one of MY photos show up on my explore page. (This is only the third time that’s ever happened to me!). It was a photo of some candy from Honeydukes in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter from one of my old Bits and Pieces posts. I completely forgot that I started this series back in 2019. Honestly, I actually loved posting little bits and pieces from my trips but then 2020/covid hit…well, you know what happened with that.

I went back through some of my old Bit and Pieces posts and I thought “Aww, I need to post more of these.” Plus, I never get tired of posting more related Disney posts. And since I’ll be in Disneyland this weekend celebrating my birthday, it only makes sense to post another Disney post to the blog!

So here’s a few (like legit five?!) cute photos from Magic Kingdom:

Rating the Food at the 2022 Epcot International Festival of the Arts

Rating the Food at the 2022 Epcot International Festival of the Arts
Happy Monday. I have SO many posts lined up that I’ve wanted to post but I have no time to edit the photos, edit the posts themselves, etc. Ugh, I feel like a horrible blogger but I’m trying my best. I’m trying to come up with a better schedule so I can put more time into blogging because it is and always will be a passion of mine.

Since I recently got back from Disney World I thought today would be a good day to do a little recap of this years Epcot International Festival of the Arts. (I guess the other posts I have planned will be pushed back yet again). 

Also side note, make sure to check out my recaps of the festival of the arts from 2019 and 2017 (the first one ever!)

Here’s how I would rate the food at the 2022 Epcot International Festival of the Arts:
