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:
Happy Monday! Since today is the final day of the 2019 Epcot International Festival of the Arts, I thought “Hey, what better day to do a little recap of the event?.” Even though the event is ending today and this information is pretty useless at this point, I still wanted to share a little bit about my time at the festival. And by “my time at the festival”, I mean talk about all the yummy food I ate while I was there.
The Epcot International Festival of the Arts is my second favorite of the Epcot festivals (after the Flower and Garden Festival of course. No shade to the Food and Wine Festival but it’s definitely my least favorite). I mean who doesn’t love looking at cool art while eating good food?! I know it’s the festival of the “arts” but warning, this post is solely about the food. (#SorryNotSorry). In this post I’ll be rating (on a scale on 1-5) all the treats I tried during the festival.
Here’s how I would rate the food at the 2019 Epcot International Festival of the Arts:
Welcome to a special Blind Box & Bag Roundup dedicated to my favorite little rodent! I can’t believe the legend himself, Mickey Mouse, is turning 90 this month. Disney and Mickey had such a huge impact on both my childhood and adulthood. And for that, Mickey will always have a special place in my heart!
Through the years Mickey has had lots of iconic looks and I loved that they represented all of the phrases of Mickey in blind bag form! I was super excited when I saw these at Target and I’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to finally open them. (And what’s more perfect than Mickey’s birthday month!).
Speaking of Mickey, don’t forget to tune into Mickey’s 90th Spectacular, a dazzling two-hour primetime event on ABC on November 4th! Continue reading
If you guys follow me on Instagram then you may have already seen my post from yesterday. It’s official, for the first time in THREE YEARS I am no longer a Disney Annual Passholder. It’s a sad day but at the same time I’m so grateful for these past three years! I grew up at Disney (Disney World specifically). Some of my favorite childhood memories include my mom, sister and I at Disney World!
And even though I’ve been a huge Disney fan since I was a young child, it wasn’t until my adulthood that I truly fell in love with Disney. The Disney Parks were always a blast when I visited them as a kid but as an adult, it was a whole new experience!
Thanks Disney for making my adulthood so magical!
