It’s no secret that I love all things Disney. And by all things Disney, I mean ALL things Disney. That includes: Pixar, Star Wars, The Muppets and of course Marvel. Although, I was a huge Marvel fan way before Disney purchased them. Or before Iron Man and the start of the MCU. (Marvel Cinematic Universe for all the non-Disney speakers). My love of Marvel started way back in the 90’s when I was just a little girl.
Growing up I LOVED X-Men. Love might not even be a strong enough word. I’ve mentioned this several times on the blog before but I even wanted to bleach a strip of my hair white when I was a kid so I could look like Rouge. I loved anything X-Men related. The comic books, the animated TV shows, the live-action films, video games. If it was X-Men, I watch/owned it!
Yup, my love for Marvel goes way back.
Since becoming an Annual Passholder in 2015, I’d say I’ve visited the Disney Parks, at minimum, at least five or six times a year. People often ask me “How is it that you don’t get tired/sick of Disney?.” The truth is, there’s ALWAYS something new to discover or experience at Disney. No Disney trip is like the last. For me, something that I always try to do is dine at a new restaurant during each trip.
(Of course I always make room for my staples like Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ and Be Our Guest but I also try to squeeze in a new dining experience as well!).
During my last two Disney trips I dined at a TON of new restaurants so I wanted to share the reviews with you all. It’s been a hot minute since my last Disney Restaurant Review so I’m excited to finally add on to that series.
Today’s post is all about Breakfast at Tusker House Restaurant in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!
It’s officially the last day of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival! Womp womp. So I thought today would be the perfect time to finally share a little recap about my trip to this years festival. I’ll be breaking up this post into three main categories: food, topiaries and random photos.
As you all know, or might not know, the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is my FAVORITE Epcot festival. Well, at least it used to be. I’m not going to lie, this year left me feeling a little underwhelmed. Dare I say that the Epcot International Festival of the Arts has officially taken the spot of my favorite Epcot festival?!
Happy Monday/Earth Day/birthday to Disney’s Animal Kingdom! Fun fact: Animal Kingdom was my favorite park when I was a kid (now as an adult, Epcot is my favorite). I remember watching the news and seeing updates on how the Tree of Life was going to be built and how it was going to look. I even got to visit Animal Kingdom during it’s opening year back in 1998. Even though I was only six at the time, I will never forget the first time I laid eyes on the Tree of Life.
I’m pretty sure my jaw dropped to the ground.
Even to this day, 21 years later, the Tree of Life is still one of the most beautiful sights in all of Disney World. To honor one of my favorite parks, on their 21st birthday (DAK can finally drink!), I wanted to share a few photos from my recent trip to Disney World last week!
Before we get into this post, can we just take a moment to appreciate how adorable Mickey and Minnie look in their 90th birthday outfits? Like can they stop being SO cute? Gosh I love these two. Any who, back to the post! Welcome to Bits and Pieces, a new series here on Simply Sinova. Bits and Pieces will highlight, well…bits and pieces of my life/different topics. It’s kind of hard to explain (not really) but you’ll get the concept the more Bits and Pieces I post!
First of all, I just want to say that I’m trying SUPER hard to get back into the swing of blogging on a regular schedule. When I first started this blog back in 2013 (Woah, that seems like forever ago), I would try to post at least once a week. Then from around 2014-mid 2018, I would try to post three times a week. But then I just got super busy with work and freelance stuff (and I got super lazy as well).
Hopefully a new series, and a bunch of other cool ideas I have floating around, will help breath some fresh air into this blog! (And help with my writers block/overall laziness).
Here are a few Bits and Pieces of my most recent trip to Walt Disney World:
