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.
So I will be the first to admit that I was a little nervous that this movie wasn’t going to be too great. The reviews have been rather lukewarm, and I loved the 2011 Muppets movie so much I didn’t think it could live up (which the Muppets fully admit in their opening song, where they sing that “The sequel’s never quite as good”). Despite that, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the movie and how good it actually was!
I think the reviews out there are too harsh on the film. The only criticism I agree with is one review that said the movie was rather “light on Muppets.” And it’s true that a lot of the focus seems to be on the human cast rather than the Muppets. Miss Piggy, Kermit, and Walter get a decent amount of time, but many of our favorites don’t do too much at all. The Muppet that seems to get the most airtime is Constantine, our bad guy – and while his shtick is funny, I miss my classic Muppets a bit.
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.
Hello everyone, and welcome to September! For me it’s a great month. I love when the weather cools down a little, and our anniversary is tomorrow so that’s always a good time to celebrate. Plus, if you’re visiting Disney it’s a great time of year to go! We went in September two years ago for our honeymoon and loved it. The parks were empty and no lines for anything. Hope your September will be magical!

Lots of exciting news for the blog! First of all, we just finished our first giveaway. Congratulations to Monique Brown Phelps for winning! I hope you enjoy your prize! And for everyone else, don’t fret, because there will definitely be more giveaways to come. I have a few pretty exciting ones lined up, so stayed tuned!
A lot of you mentioned that you like seeing craft projects and recipes, so expect a lot more of those posts. I’ll also be keeping you up to date with theme park news and sharing theme park related posts, including planning tips and visiting Disney on a budget. I have some friends in the parks right now or visiting soon that are going to share their thoughts on Magic Bands, so if you’re curious about that then we’ll have some info to share. And now that the fall season is starting I also want to share seasonally related things. Have any photos of Disney themed autumn decor? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to be featured!
Finally, I have a really exciting project I’m working on that I plan to get up the first week of October. It’s something for the holiday season and I think you all will love it! I can’t reveal anything yet, but I can’t tell you how excited I am about it! So for those of you that like crafts, Christmas, and giveaways, this new project/column will debut in October!
