Top 7 Disney Park Tips! 

Originally posted on Me, Myself and Everything Else:
I’ve been thinking about this post for what seems like forever now and am so excited to finally be sharing it! I’m sure I’ll be back with more because we all know I’ll post this and immediately think of another tip… Anyways! Let’s get real, Nick and I love Disney! We always have. We both loved it when we were younger and together, the love has just grown more! Disneyland was one of the first big trips Nick and I ever took together and then Disneyworld was the first really big trip we took together! We always have the best time and now we still pinch ourselves that we live so close! And no, we don’t get sick of it! If anything, it makes it better in my opinion because on days where its just so crazy and we don’t feel like waiting in line, we don’t have to! We can enjoy what we want and then go somewhere else! No stress of super long days! I’ve…

Disneyland! Paris!

I love Disneyland! I really do and I’m not embarrassed to admit it! There’s a reason they call it the Happiest Place On Earth! Lucky for me, we’ve often (okay too many times to count) had the good fortune to visit the parks in Southern California as well as a one time visit to Walt Disney World, but I’d always wondered what it would be like to visit an international Disney park. A few years ago during a trip to Paris my wish came true! Not only did we get to visit Disneyland Paris, but it happened to be the Park’s 20th anniversary while we were there, so that was an added bonus! Getting There: Disneyland Paris is located about 20 miles?from?Paris and is easily accessible from the city by train, car, shuttle bus and express train. All of these options are listed on the Disneyland Paris website. Impressions: Considering we had only one incredibly rainy day to spend at the park?I was surprised at how much we were able to…

Disney Songs About Adulthood

Originally posted on Sublunar Reflections:
I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I listen to Disney music when I clean my apartment. Yeah, I know, Disney movies are for kids. But sometimes I still feel like their songs just hit the nail on the head for me. I mean, have you ever stopped to really listen the lyrics? It’s easy to just recite the words from memory, but when you get down to it there’s a lot of really inspiring and grown up stuff in there. Here a few of my favorite examples of Disney songs about adulthood: ? “Almost There” – Princess and the Frog I remember Daddy told me: “Fairy tales can come true. You gotta make ‘em happen; it all depends on you.” So work real hard, each and every day. Now things for sure are going my way. Just doing what I do, Look out boys, I’m coming through! I know this is a newer movie, but I love that Princess Tiana isn’t a “princess” in the traditional…

Things that make me happy Part 3 | Disney

Originally posted on LucieLeannexo:
I’ve been really struggling for ideas for lifestyle posts recently, but whilst watching some Disney World vlogs I had a sudden realisation I hadn’t posted about Disney at all really on my blog yet! I’m sure this is the same for most of you, but for me Disney really just symbolises my childhood and family memories in a nutshell. My brother and I were very lucky as my parents always took us to the cinema to watch the Disney films. They also took us on a few family holidays to Disney World in Florida, and Disneyland Paris – of which I have very fond memories. My brother and me, in Disney World back in good old days! In general Disney is one of those things that when I’m feeling sad or fed up, watching a Disney movie will always cheer me up. There’s nothing better than snuggling up to watch a Disney film in my onesie with a hot chocolate. I love the Disney classics but I’ve also learned to love…

Disney World Tips | 5 Favorite Epcot Rides

Originally posted on White Walls + Wanderlust:
As you may or may not know, I have a slight (major) obsession with Disney World. It’s one of my favorite places to visit. Definitely in my top three, for sure. Any time I have a say in where we go for a family vacation, it typically includes a Disney park. For a while now I’ve been wanting to start a blog series where I talk about my favorite and least favorite rides, best places to eat, and more Disney World tips. To start out, here’s a post with a countdown of my opinion on the five best rides at Epcot. Not intentionally, all of my favorite rides are located in Future World which is the first half of the park before you get to the World Showcase. 5! The Sum Of All Thrills This ride is one that for whatever reason, I never hear anything about. It’s in the Innoventions building at Epcot which I guess not many people go in. Or maybe everyone knows about it and I’m just living under a rock. This ride allows you to design…

‘Big Hero 6’ series to Share Similar Plotline as ‘Captain America’ Series? Warning: Spoilers!

Originally posted on Ice the Burn:
If you haven’t heard already, there are plans to make a sequel to the comic-inspired animated film Big Hero 6, currently known as Big Hero 7 (naturally the number should increase with every sequel to come just like Ocean’s Eleven). Additionally, there’s been rumors about Tadashi being ALIVE! Yeah, Tadashi, the older brother of Hiro, the perfect role model and creator of Baymax, who supposedly died in a fire during a technology convention in the first film. Not only is he alive, but he’s rumored to be the VILLAIN of the next film, becoming the character Sunfire (who supposedly is an X-Men cross-over?!?). And of course other rumors are spreading, leading to other rumors based on rumors. But the point of this post is this: it sounds very similar to the Captain America films, and as someone who hasn’t been invested in the comics I am only capable of breaking down plot points and noting that somewhere in Marvel Studios and the Comic universe is one of potentially several…

Insecurity: A Daunting Companion

Originally posted on A Sunny Place To Think:
I am secretly insecure. About a lot of things. Sure, I’m the chipper, go-to gal amongst all of my friends and family, too. I’m always ready to lend a helping hand, whether it be running your errands for you, to babysitting your kid, to helping out with homework or housework or yardwork. Optimism is my middle name, mostly. I always have a ready smile and I always have something to laugh about. But deep down, WAY deep down the darkness known as fear weaves me in a tighter web. I think this is the source my anxiety feeds on. This internal fear that I hide away so well from so many people that they don’t even know I have this problem until someone I’m close to (like my mother, for instance) tells them. What am I insecure about? Many things. I’ve touched on them briefly in previous posts. Like how I’m 25, have only ever had one “serious” relationship (which only lasted 6 months), fear that I’ll never find “the…

When Fairytales Don’t Come True

I’m still trying to remember the time when I finally realized that my Disney princess ideas of relationships and marriage were never true. It was probably during middle school when I fell in love with my first boyfriend for one whole week or probably somewhere between the two page love letter that I wrote him right before he moved away without saying a word. I learned some really hard lessons back then. One being, never kiss a guy after P.E. Now, I know the phrase physical education may seem to have some sexual innuendo, but it mostly meant a hot mess. I mean, there I was with my best Cinderella before 11:59 p.m. impression. And although we had to wear that tacky blue gym outfit every other day, today, I was fairy-godmother-ready with my high ponytail, my sparkling white Nikes, and my lip gloss-game so right that even Lil Mama would be jealous. My prince, on the other hand, or maybe I should say my frog, was trying to prove that he would be the next …
