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.
I know my costumes for my upcoming Disney races during Princess weekend: I’ll be doing Snow White for the 10k and Anna for the Half. However, I’m also planning to sign up for the Disneyland half marathon in September! And honestly, one of my favorite parts of planning for a race is deciding on a costume.
I plan to run the Princess races as often as I can, and I like dressing as a princess for those – so for Disneyland I’m thinking I would like to do a non-princess. Here are some ideas I’ve come up with so far. Which one do you like the best? Any other suggestions?

I would really love to do this costume, but I’m wondering if it might be better to save it for when I someday do the Wine and Dine half – because it’s sort of food related and all, with the candy and whatnot.
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!
I feel like a lot has been happening lately in the world of Disney! Some interesting and exciting announcements have come out about both the parks and films. And as the holidays approach, there are always fun things happening!
Disney in your Day News
We are right in the middle of another restaurant tournament – this time for signature and character dining! If you haven’t placed your votes for Round 2 yet, be sure to check that out now. I’m also in the middle of Glass Slipper Challenge training, and though it’s a little rougher than last time I’m still getting through it. I have two more running related reviews to put up, both of which I’m super excited about. And there will certainly be some holiday themed posts coming this month!
On January 3rd, my husband and I attended Disney on Ice: Let’s Celebrate! when it came to Philadelphia. We had been to Rockin’ Ever After last year and really enjoyed it, so we were excited for this one. We don’t have kids, and I will say that we were definitely in the minority on that one. It’s certainly a show that is geared toward children and not adults, but if you’re a true Disney fan at heart I think you’ll enjoy it regardless. It’s a fun, feel-good time.
