Summer is here, the heat is on, and I’m enjoying every second of it! But when visiting Disney, make sure you bring the sunscreen! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gotten burnt while visiting. That is my PSA of the day.

No one guessed my favorite movie line from last week…Here’s more of it, so you all can get it in context.  “I’m Woody! Howdy. Howdy. Howdy!” Did you guess it was the shark wearing Woody’s hat in Toy Story?  I get a chuckle from that every time.

I love short weeks, don’t you? This week just breezed right by! (Maybe that’s because I slept a lot…I went down to Disney for the 24 hour event and after working, driving down, and touring in the parks, I was up for 27 hours! It was a lot of fun and totally worth it though!) Did you happen to attend the 24 hour day at either the Magic Kingdom or Disneyland Resort? Let me know your thoughts in the comments about the event and if you’d ever do it again!

This week’s articles include a great article about EPCOT, an interview with Neil Patrick Harris about his duties as host of World of Color, and much more!
