What’s in My Disney Parks Bag: Disney World Must Haves

May 21, 2018

Disney World Must Haves
As most of you know, even though I live in Chicago, I travel to Disney quite often. In fact, ever since I became an annual pass holder back in 2015, I’ve visited Disneyland and Disney World at least seven times a year. I’ve also been to Disneyland Paris twice and am heading on my second Disney Cruise this August! (To me there’s no such thing as too much Disney!). 

Since I frequent the Disney Parks so often, I’ve become sort a Disney expert. (Especially when it comes to things like packing, best times to visit, how to save money, etc!). Over the years I’ve definitely learned the do’s and don’t of what to bring to Disney. 

Here’s what’s in my Disney Parks Bag:

Breakfast & Lunch at Be Our Guest Restaurant | Walt Disney World

March 12, 2018

Dining at Be Our Guest Restaurant
If you’ve frequented the Disney Parks in the past few years, you know firsthand how difficult it can be to score reservations to Be Our Guest restaurant. The Beauty and the Beast themed restaurant has been a hit amongst park goers since it’s opening in 2012. Although getting reservations at this popular Disney eatery can be tricky, somehow I’ve managed to dine at Be Our Guest several times. 

(In fact, I’ve eaten there seven times in the past three years. And I have reservations for dinner at Be Our Guest this August!).

A lot of all people have asked me if dining at Be Our Guest is worth it. So today I decided to talk all about what it’s like to have breakfast and/or lunch at Be Our Guest restaurant. (Since I’ve already briefly talked about having dinner at Be Our Guest before).

Here’s what I love about Be Our Guest Restaurant!

My Top 5 Favorite Star Wars & Marvel Films

February 20, 2018

Best Star Wars Films Ranked
Raise your hand if you also saw Black Panther last weekend. Can we all just talk about how amazing that film was?! I’m seriously thinking about seeing it again soon! Since I spend last weekend seeing the latest Marvel film and since I had such a blast sharing my favorite Disney films last week, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Marvel and Star Wars films with you guys today!

Since there are significantly less Marvel (18) and Star Wars (only 9) films then there are Disney films, I decided to go with my top five favorite films (instead of top 20 like with my Disney list). 

Here are my five favorite Marvel films (in no particular order):

My Top 20 Favorite Animated Disney Films

February 12, 2018

Danielle Nicole Beast Clutch
From the classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to 2016’s Moana, Walt Disney Animation Studios has released 56 full-length animated films to date. Today I wanted to share a few of my personal favorite Disney animated films. These are the films that have shaped me, inspired me and taught me to always keep dreaming! Although I’m a fan of pretty much every Disney film, I wanted to narrow the list down a bit. Although it was hard to pick and choose, I was able to come up with my top 20 Disney films!

If you couldn’t already tell from the photo above, Beauty and the Beast is my absolute favorite Disney film. Although oddly enough, I wasn’t a big fan of the 2017 live-action version. (It just wasn’t my cup of tea. I found the signing to be awful and for me, a HUGE part of Beauty and the Beast is the songs!). Also since I’m a 90’s kid, you may notice that I basically listed all the films released in the Disney Renaissance Era (since those were the films of my childhood!).

For reference, this list ONLY features animated films from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Meaning, there will be no Pixar, Star Wars, or Marvel films (because those deserve a list of there own!).

Here are my favorite animated Disney films:

Disney Cruise Line: Decorating Your Stateroom Door

February 7, 2018

Decorating Your Disney Cruise Line Stateroom Door
Since all of the stateroom doors on the Disney Cruise Line are magnetic, a lot of people like to decorate their doors with Disney themed magnets, dry erase boards, and more! It’s a fun way to add a little pizzazz to your stateroom.

Disney fans never cease to amaze me with their creativity! One of my favorite things to do while I was on my Disney Cruise was to roam the halls on each deck and check out all of the cool decorated stateroom doors. It was so much fun getting to see all of the different ways people expressed their “Disney pride” via magnets and decor on their stateroom doors. 

Here are a few tips for decorating YOUR Disney Cruise Line stateroom door:
