February 2015 monthly round up

Disney in your Day News

Yay, it’s finally February!  That means I’m going back to Disney!  If you’ve been following my blog you probably know that I’m running the Glass Slipper Challenge, so I’m getting excited but also a little nervous about that.   We have so many other fun things planned too – dinner at Yachtsman, FP+ to meet Anna and Elsa, and even a trip over to Universal to check out the Harry Potter stuff!  Plus, I’m now signed up for the Disneyland Half marathon – which means I’ll get my coast to coast medal, and I’ll be going to Disneyland for the first time!

As for the blog, once I return from my trip expect to see lots of park updates.  I’ll also be continuing some of the regular series, such as “thoughts on Disney movies.”  I’m hoping to get some more recipes and crafts up too.  And I may or may not have recently become a little obsessed with tsum tsums, so I have a feeling they will be appearing on the blog as well!

Disney News

  • First the “big news” was that Disney was introducing these cool looking mugs at their Starbucks locations.  However, now the Epcot mug has been pulled because of the monorail having a purple stripe on it (the color of the monorail from the fatal accident in 2009, a color that has since been retired by Disney.  My bet is that they’ll change the color of the stripe and have the mug back on the shelves as soon as possible.
  • Disney is already getting ready to make new Indiana Jones movies… and rumor has it that Chris Pratt will be playing the lead role.
  • People have been clamoring for Disney to introduce a Latina princess, and now she’s here – Elena of Avalor, who will have her own show on Disney Junior.
  • If you’re concerned about the construction at the Magic Kingdom, check out this update to see what exactly is going on now.
  • Peter Pan’s Flight now has a new queue – I’m looking forward to seeing this when I visit!
  • This makes me so happy: it has now been announced that Emma Watson will be playing Belle in a live action Beauty and the Beast film.  I think it’s a great casting choice!
  • Disneyland is going to be celebrating it’s 60th Anniversary this year, which is the diamond celebration.  Disney has announced some of the exciting things that will be happening for that event!

February 2014 Monthly Round Up

I’m excited for February, because it means I’m going back to Disney!!  Not till the end of the month, but this time I get to be there for over a week.  I’m doing the Enchanted 10k and I’m getting a little nervous but also excited about it.  We also had the water parks fun and more option added to our tickets, so if the weather is nice enough we’ll do a water park, which I haven’t done in years.  And we plan to try some new things, like Disney Quest, mini golf, and riding in the balloon at Downtown Disney!

This month I’m planning to bring you some articles that were on my previous blog which was deleted.  I was only able to save some of them, but I’m working on updating them to share here!  I also want to add more posts to my Disney Bucket List.
