A Personal Film Festival

Another blogger over at The Animation Commendation tagged me in a post to create my own personal film festival – basically, a list of my favorite films from each year that I’ve been alive.  I’ll try to pass along the fun by tagging some other bloggers as well!  You’ll see a lot of Disney movies on this list, but maybe a few others as well.  I did some honorable mentions too since I have such a love of Disney, but enjoy other films too!   I talk about Disney a lot on here (obviously), but this will also give you a glimpse into other things I enjoy.

1988:  Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Disney Christmas Ornaments

img_1035

One of my favorite items at Disney around the holidays is Christmas ornaments!  They are a fun way to add Disney into your holidays, and they also make great souvenirs from the parks.  Whether you get them from Hallmark, Disney World, or the Disney Store, there are so many wonderful ones to choose from I wanted to share my favorites!

One that we purchased on our honeymoon. I especially loved it because my bouquet was blue roses just like Minnie’s!

I got this for my husband last year, as he's a big Toy Story fan.

June 2014 monthly round up

Sorry this round up is a little late – there were lots of other exciting posts I wanted to make sure I got out this week, like a Maleficent tutu and my review of the Maleficent movie!  Lots of love going around for the evil fairy this week.  It’s June, which means summer is starting soon!  And it also means that very soon, Disney in your Day will be a year old!  I’m sure we’ll try to have some fun posts and giveaways for that 🙂

It seems to me like there’s been a ton of news and interesting blog posts lately, so let’s get down to it!

Disney in your Day news

tower of terror 10 miler

I know that last month I mentioned bringing back the restaurant tournament for resort restaurants – but there were so many great items in the running gear guide and other things happening that I didn’t get around to it.  Hopefully for June!  The running gear guide will still be posting items all this month and maybe into July, so make sure you check out our giveaways!  I also start training for the Tower of Terror 10 miler run this week, so I’m going to post periodic updates about that for others who may be curious about the process of training for a Disney run.

March 2014 Monthly Round Up

It’s March 1st, and I just got back from Disney last night.  I have so much I’m excited to share from this trip, but the biggest thing is that I’ve definitely caught the Disney running bug, as did a lot of my friends!  I did the Enchanted 10k and absolutely loved it.  I felt great afterward.  So great that I’m now signed up to do the Tower of Terror 10 miler in October!  In addition to running we did lots of other fun things that I’m looking forward to sharing with you.

We have an Etsy shop giveaway that should be coming up this month, so be on the lookout for that!  Something else I’m excited about is a guest blogger who has what I think will be a fascinating post – especially for you Star Wars fans! 😉  I have lots I want to report on from my Disney trip: look for a recap of the 10k, Disney running costume ideas, dining with an Imagineer, the Royal Rooms at Port Orleans Riverside, a Spice Road Table review, my thoughts on FastPass Plus, and more!

I also have big plans for a series of posts that I think runners in particular will be very excited about.  I can’t wait to get started with that – hopefully in April!

Wordless Wednesday: The Letter T

It’s time for the letter T!  And in Disney, T stands for…

Tower of Terror!  I rode this in December for the first time in years!  Conquered my fear and actually had quite a good time 🙂

A Fairy Tale Inspired Murder Mystery Party

While it’s not strictly Disney related, about a year ago I threw a murder mystery party that had a fairy tale theme – and I feel like that’s something that Disney fans might be interested in!  You could very easily add a lot of details to make it Disney-oriented, even if the mystery itself isn’t from Disney.

I had hosted a number of murder mystery parties with different themes before, but I was especially excited about this one.  It is called Once upon a Murder, and it’s a downloadable party from Night of Mystery.  You can print everything right from your computer that you’ll need, and depending on which version you purchase it can hold anywhere from 8-80 guests.  We got the version for 8-12 people, and had 12 at our party.

Bucket List: Meet all of the Disney Princes

bucket list - princes

One of the other items on my bucket list was to meet all of the Disney Princesses.  The Princes, however, are a lot harder to find.  Some of them pop up frequently enough to check off the list, and others are almost impossible.

Flynn Rider:

Though Flynn has technically become a prince since marrying Rapunzel, you won’t find him in Princely outfits!  A few years ago he was out doing meet and greets with Rapunzel, but ever since Merida took over that area you find Rapunzel on her own.  Rumor has it though that Flynn can still be found in Disneyland and Tokyo Disney, as well as on special occasions (like True Love week this past February).
