The Magic, The Memories, and Merch! January 2015 Photo Report of the Disney Outlet Store

by on January 31, 2015

MMM positiveIt’s January and that means we are in a whole new year. It’s going to be hard to top 2014. We had Disney Imagineers with 9 foot shovels in Animal Kingdom.  We had a commercial with featured both the Seven Dwarfs and rap music (which, by the way, wasn’t even the weirdest commercial Disney did last year). It was a year we discovered that the Pop Century Resort offered a sandwich that used Pop Tarts as the bread.  It was a year that we lost Push the talking trashcan, the Giggle Gang, and Camp Minnie Mickey, but gained a whole lot of Anna and Elsa. What will 2015 bring? Well, looks like just more Anna and Elsa, but here’s hoping for another 12 months of unforgettable moments, magical memories, and merchandise people don’t want to buy, speaking of which….

Enough jibber jabber! Who is ready to hit the Outlets? Remember that clicking on any picture will open a full size version of it (don’t say we didn’t warn you).

Now, some readers of this column may remember last month that I vowed to “hang it up” if Disney released a Steamboat Duffy Bear. Well, Disney called my bluff.

Daisy Lauren’s Best Week Ever: January 22, 2015

by on January 22, 2015

IMG_2409Hi, Everyone! Welcome to the Best Week Ever here at Walt Disney World. This week we’ll be visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios for all the latest updates, stopping by Downtown Disney for a little food truck action, and finishing up at Magic Kingdom. Ready for some beautiful, blue Florida skies? Let’s get moving! :)

Early Saturday morning we set out for Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I knew with the holiday weekend and awesome weather that we’d be facing a crowd. You can see from the photo that it wasn’t too crowded when we arrived, but that changed fast. Speaking of fast, check out the progress removing the hat! I can’t believe how fast it’s coming down. In the bottom right hand side of the photo you can see the actual top of the hat behind the construction wall. It’s so much bigger than it looks! Want to see what other fun stuff we found this weekend? Be sure to click to read more!

Daisy Lauren’s Best Week Ever: January 15, 2015

by on January 15, 2015

1Hi, Everyone! Welcome to the Best Week Ever here at Walt Disney World. This week we’ll be visiting the Disney Marathon at Epcot, stopping by Disney’s Hollywood Studios to check on the hat, and finishing up at Magic Kingdom. Ready for some fun? Let’s go! :)

So why would I include a photo of the Walt Disney World maingate entrance? You might recall that last week I recommended getting to the parks extra early this weekend because of the Disney Marathon. I’ve always enjoyed getting in extra early and getting ahead of the crowds during race weekends, but it had been years since I showed up at 11am. Well, showing up that late meant that traffic stopped right where I took this photo! I decided to tough it out this year so I could share what it looks like with you guys. Click to read more if you’d like to see why you should get there early!

Good news, Frozen fans! Reports say that documents have been filed with the South Florida Water Management District and the Reedy Creek Improvement District that share some new details about what we can expect with the updated Norway Pavilion at Epcot.

The paperwork indicates that a brand new 13,000 square foot building will be added in what is currently a backstage area that is situated between the Mexico Pavilion and the Norway Pavilion. This new section will house the previously announced Frozen meet and greet, women’s restrooms, and more.

For a map overlay of how the project may fit in Epcot, check out Theme Park Insider.

Good news for those of you running during marathon weekend, those of you who love the holidays, or for those of you who just really love Frozen! Over at the Magic Kingdom, Guests will continue to have the opportunity to see the castle lighting show, “A Frozen Holiday Wish“. The new holiday treat has been extended for a limited time, lasting until Monday, January 12, with a daily showtime of 6:30 p.m. (Unlike during the holiday season, there will only be one performance nightly.)

During the show, Anna, Kristoff, and Olaf help to convince Elsa to utilize her icy powers to transform Cinderella Castle into a gorgeous winter wonderland. This Frozen-themed castle lighting show replaced “Cinderella’s Holiday Wish” earlier this holiday season.

So if you missed out on this spectacular during the holiday season, or you just really love the show, you’ll still have the chance to catch the gorgeous castle lighting ceremony for one extra week!

SATURDAY SIX: Six Reasons We’ll Never Forget 2014 (No Matter How Hard We Try)

by on December 27, 2014

This week’s  SATURDAY SIX takes a look at Six Reasons We’ll Never Forget 2014 (No Matter How Hard We Try). With this being the last edition of the SATURDAY SIX for 2014 we thought that we would spend a little time looking back at some of the most memorable moments of the year. Now we already covered some of the great things that happened during the year, and some of the worst as well, so today let’s look at six theme park stories that fall into a different area. Events that are almost hard to believe actually happened, but we promise they did, and we’re here with the proof. So let’s kick it off with…

# 6 – The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train rap video

There are music videos, and there are music videos. This is the latter. Coming off one of the strangest commercials of all time for FastPass+, Walt Disney World outdid themselves with a commercial for the soon-to-open Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction. We admit to watching this commercial on a non-stop loop after we first saw it, laughing harder each time. I mean, let’s be honest, when you think of the Seven Dwarfs, who doesn’t think of rap music?!

Daisy Lauren’s Best Week Ever: December 25, 2014

by on December 25, 2014

1Hi, Everyone! Welcome to the Best Week Ever here at Walt Disney World! This week we’re stopping by Disney’s Hollywood Studios, checking out some sweet treats at the Contempo Cafe, and taking another detailed look at the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party. I can’t wait – so let’s get going! :)

Now, you might be asking yourself why I’m not covering the new Polynesian lobby or the Comedy Warehouse returning to the Disney’s Hollywood Studios. While I pride myself on bringing you guys the latest news from the parks every week, I’m home enjoying some time with my family for the holidays. Rather than leave you without any Disney goodness at all, I decided to pull some extra fun from the past couple of weeks to share with you. I’ll be back next week to share the latest news and to get ready for the craziness that is New Year’s Eve at Walt Disney World! I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday! How are you celebrating? I’d love to hear in the comment below!

We started celebrating a couple weeks ago in the Disney parks. As you can see to the left, we wanted to build a snowman! While it was only about six inches tall, it was the best these Floridians have done in a while. ;) Want to see what else we did? Click to read more.

The Spirit of Frozen In Every Day Life

by on December 11, 2014

Left Photo - Disney; Right Photo - Angela Dahlgren

Angela as a Disney Princess…hmm, I like the sound of that!

Frozen is huge. It’s bigger than Elsa’s ice castle. Or her abominable snow-monster body guard. And people won’t be “letting it go” any time soon.

So, if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em! Here are some ways to keep that Frozen spirit alive and with you every day.

Make Up

This post gave me an excuse to play with my make up for the first time in forever, so here is a look inspired by Elsa. All you need is some purple and pink eye shadow. Apply the purple all over the lid. From there, add a darker pink to the crease and blend. If you’re feeling crazy, add some glitter and fake eye lashes like I did. In order to do the side-by-side comparison justice, I had to perform a bit of photoshop magic to make me appear porcelain and blue-eyed. These things don’t come naturally!

Top: Snowy Arendelle Bottom: Olaf-Inspired

Nails

I tried at least four times to draw a snow flake on my nails for you all. Unfortunately, my hand is about as steady as a three-legged Sven. Although I didn’t color completely in the lines, here are two nail looks I created. For snowy Arendelle nails, paint your nails a light blue color. After the paint has dried, take a tooth pick and dot polish on the nails, alternating between white and silver. To achieve my Olaf-inspired nails, paint your nails white and use a q-tip to dot them with a black polish. Top with glitter if you like and there you have it!

Then we’re stopping by Downtown Disney, Disney’s Hollywood StudiosDisney’s Fort Wilderness Campground, and finishing off at the Magic Kingdom. There is oh so much fun this week – so let’s get going! :)

The decorations at Art of Animation might surprise you! I know I wasn’t expecting a white Christmas tree with every color of the rainbow wrapped around it! But the design couldn’t be more fitting for this bright and happy hotel. Want to see more decorations and a Little Mermaid room? Be sure to click to read more below.

Daisy Lauren’s Best Week Ever: November 27, 2014

by on November 27, 2014

Hi, Everyone! Welcome to the Best Week Ever here at Walt Disney World! This week we’re taking a look at resort decorations at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge, stopping by the Magic Kingdom to check out the new Peter Pan’s Flight queue, and wrapping up with a visit to Downtown Disney and Animal Kingdom. I have so much to share, so let’s get started! :)

And what better way to start than with the stunning lobby of the Animal Kingdom Lodge? After all these years I’m still amazed walking in here. I think it might be my favorite hotel (and not just because Jiko is hiding inside). The tree towering inside looks perfect and coordinates with all the garland strung around the lobby. While there isn’t much else at the resort in the way of Christmas decorations, what more could you ask for? Be sure to click below to see what else is new this week.
