Easter Egg Hunt Egg-stravaganza at Epcot | Walt Disney World

April 12, 2017

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival
Last month while I was at Disney World, for the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, I got to FINALLY cross off something that’s been on my Disney bucket list for the longest time: participate in the easter egg hunt Egg-stravaganza at Epcot! Although I’ve visited Disney World (and Disneyland) plenty of times during the spring in the past, my trips never coincided with when the Easter Egg Hunt Egg-stravaganza was taking place (last year I literally missed it by two weeks!). The Easter Egg Hunt Egg-stravaganza (which takes place in Epcot at Disney World, Disneyland, California Adventure and Downtown Disney) is a fun, egg-themed scavenger hunt (for both kids and adults) where participants search for special hidden Disney themed “eggs” and record their discoveries by placing the corresponding Disney character’s sticker on the specially themed Egg-stravaganza map to represent that location.  Continue reading

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival | Disney World

Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival
Long time no see! I feel like it’s been forever since I’ve blogged (okay, it’s only been a week but that’s a long time in the blogging world!). I don’t know if there’s just something in the air but I’ve been crazy sick lately (some of you may or may not recall that I had a bad case of pneumonia not to long ago!). No really, I literally spent 85% of last week in bed surrounded by the piles of medicine my doctor gave me (hence the lack of blog updates!). I don’t know about you but I HATE being sick (especially since it doesn’t happen to me that often!). Whenever I’m really sick all I want to do is lay in bed, watch tv and sleep (which doesn’t sound all that bad but it definitely doesn’t help me be productive in anyway!). It’s crazy to think that not just three weeks ago, I was roaming around sunny Florida (although it was unseasonably cool) enjoying the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival! I’ve said this before but the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival is absolutely breathtaking and I think it’s something ALL Disney lovers should experience in person (honestly, you don’t even have to be a huge Disney fan to appreciate all the beauty the Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival has to offer!).

Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ at Disney Springs | Walt Disney World

March 17, 2017

Chef Art Smith's Homecomin' at Disney Springs
Happy Friday aka happy Beauty and the Beast live-action release day (and also happy St. Paddy’s day)! Speaking of Beauty and the Beast, I saw it last night and I’m not really sure how I feel about it yet. Since Beauty and the Beast is my FAVORITE movie, I already knew that I’d be more critical (and constantly comparing it to the animated version) than the average viewer. Although I really did like the humor, the new characters and the fact that the live-action version covered a lot of plot holes that the animated one didn’t, it was the songs/singing that was a little lack luster to me (I mean the music is what makes BATB, in my opinion!). Also, here’s a little fun fact for you all: my birthday is in EXACTLY one month (aka April 17th!). That means in exactly one month I’ll be 25?! It’s crazy because it seems like yesterday I was celebrating my 24th birthday at Disneyland Paris (which by the way, was one of the BEST birthdays EVER!). While we’re on the topic of Disney, whenever I visit the Disney parks, I always make it my mission to try and eat at at least one new restaurant. Whether it be somewhere in the parks that I’ve never tried before or at somewhere in Downtown Disney (if I’m visiting Disneyland) or Disney Springs (if I’m visiting Disney World). With the recent expansion of Disney Springs last year, I’ve come across so many new eateries that I’ve been itching to try out (because who doesn’t love food?). During my most recent trip to Disney World last week, I decided to finally give Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ a try (after reading and hearing so any AWESOME reviews about it!).  Continue reading

Disney World Haul

Disney World Haul: Winter 2017

March 13, 2017

Disney World Haul
Happy Monday! It’s a new month, which means it’s time for a new Disney Haul! Since I just got back from Disney World, I thought today would be the perfect time to share some of the souvenirs I picked up while I was at Disney. Speaking of Disney souvenirs, I just realized that I never shared my January Disney Haul (from my last minute trip to Disney World for the first ever Epcot International Festival of the Arts). Whoops. Since it was such a last minute trip (I literally booked my flight a few days before hand) and I didn’t really budget for it, I only picked up two or three Epcot International Festival of the Arts themed items (so I thought a full on “haul” post wouldn’t be necessary). Like I say in all my Disney Haul posts, a quick disclosure: since I am a Disney Premier Passport holder (aka someone who has an annual pass to both Disneyland AND Disney World), I get a pretty good discount on merchandise (20% off at Disneyland and now 20%, it used to be 10% but WDW upgraded the discount, off at Disney World.) Here is my winter 2017 Disney World Haul: Continue reading

Blind Box & Bag Roundup 39. (Disney Holiday Mystery Tsum Tsum Pins)

December 1, 2016

Disney Holiday Mystery Tsum Tsum Pins
Happy Thursday and welcome to another edition of Blind Box & Bag Roundup! Since today’s the first day of December (can you believe it’s DECEMBER already?!), I thought it would be the perfect time to open up the new Disney Holiday Mystery tsum tsum Pin Set I picked up while I was at Disneyland last month! As some of you may know, I’m a HUGE Disney pin lover/collector (I’ve been collecting since 2001) and a huge tsum tsum lover/collector (I’ve been collecting since late 2014). In fact, I’ve had quite a few people ask me about my Disney Pins collection so I definitely plan on sharing a Disney Pins collection post at some point and talking more about which kinds of Disney pins I collect, my favorite Disney pins, tips for pin trading at the Disney Parks and more pin related stuff! Although I already own quite a few Disney tsum tsum pins, I knew I HAD to add some of these adorable holiday pins to my collection (because everything is better when it’s Christmas themed!).  Continue reading
