Special Delivery From Hong Kong Disneyland | Monthly Pin Update

August 15, 2022

Hong Kong Disneyland Cheshire Cat Cake pin Happy Monday friends! How’s everyone doing? Me? I’ve been doing great. If you read my last blog post than you already know how much I LOVE Westworld. And if you’re a Westworld fan than you know last night was the fourth season finale. Y’all….THAT FINALE?!!! UM…..I have no words. I hate that every season of Westworld comes out 2 years after the previous season. You’re telling me I’m going to have to wait until 2024 for more?!!! Sigh.

I can’t believe this is already my THIRD Monthly Pin Update post. I’m so glad I finally starting talking about + featuring my Disney pin collection here on the blog. It’s been such a huge part of my life since the 90s honestly. (I bought my first Disney pin back in 1998 when my family when to Disney World for the opening for Disney’s Animal Kingdom). 

Here’s the Disney Pins I added to my collection in July:

My New FAVORITE Pin | Monthly Pin Update

June 24, 2022

Chip n Dale D23 Expo Pin
Happy Friday everyone! It’s officially summer…which also means it’s offically my least favorite time of the year. Yay for me. But no really, I hate summer and if you’ve been following this blog for a while you know why. For the past two weeks its been in the high 90s here in Chicago. But it’s a cool 88 today…sigh..

Anywho, onto something I do love: Disney pins! I got so many cute new pins in the past month.

Here’s my pin update for May 2022: Continue reading

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

Opening Disney Pins from BoxLunch | Monthly Pin Update

May 10, 2022

BoxLunch Disney Pins Winnie the Pooh Disney Pin
Happy May and welcome to a new segment here on the blog! I miss doing my little monthly segments (RIP 12 Months of Happiness) so I thought it would be fun to create a new one. (Because why not?). I’ve been slowly growing my Disney pin collection more and more and I’ve been wanting to share more about it here on the blog. This new monthly segment is called: Monthly Pin Update or MPU for short.

In this series I’ll just be updating you on what new pins I’ve gotten that month. Sometimes it will be pins I purchased or, when I go to Disney, pins I’ve traded for. I thought it would be a fun way to sort of watch the growth of my pin collection.

In April, I purchased a few new pins from BoxLunch:
