My Disney Desktop!

Here’s some more news that’s come across my desk that I wanted to share!

We saw Moana in the theater back in December and ordered it on demand the day it came out – and I have to tell you – I love it more and more each time I see it… AND there is no way you can watch this Oscar segment, featuring the actress who voices Moana, Auli’i Cravalho, and not LOVE her too!  Her pure and refreshing performance tops most things I’ve seen in recent times. (click here)

Have you ever gone DisneyBounding?…or even know what I’m talking about?  DisneyBounding is when you dress in pieces of clothing and accessories that are in step with a Disney character.  For example, during one visit to Magic Kingdom Park last year, I wore green mermaid scale leggings, a lavender top and a sea star hair clip…I was DisneyBounding as Ariel!  Just recently John Stamos strutted his stuff in a DisneyBounding outfit of his own! (click here)

Now you want in on DisneyBounding too – don’t you?  Well Disney has now made it easier than ever!  Check out this new line of clothing that will be available at Disney Springs later this month! (click here)

Another new thing available at Disney Springs is New Personalized Storybooks at the Photopass Studio.  I can see this being the BEST magical vacation memento! (click here)

It’s been snowing up here in the North East – so I’m dreaming of summer…here’s a fun video with some Lilo and Stitch summer inspired nails – doing this may just be the pick me up I need! (click here)

Hope you enjoyed these articles – let me know which ones you liked best!  I’ll keep sorting through the good and the bad to bring you the best Disney updates in My Disney Desktop!

Also- don’t forget – Sprinkling Pixie Dust is about to turn ONE!  I’m giving away a $100 Disney gift card to one lucky winner to mark the occasion – see how you can enter! (click here)

Disney’s Art of Animation Resort

Disney’s Art of Animation Resort  is a truly special and magical place to stay.  As soon as you pass through Animation Hall you exit INTO the movies you love.  You become part of Disney classics!  You’ll walk through Radiator Springs, swim along with Dory, discover treasures “Under the Sea” and embrace the spirit of “Hakuna Matata”! There’s a delicious food court, multiple pools (including the largest pool in Walt Disney World Resort) and use of Disney’s complimentary transportation system.

My family has stayed at Disney’s Art of Animation Resort twice and we fully intend to stay there again!  The family suites are the perfect size to accommodate our family of 5 and the theming can’t be beat!

Here’s a “Wordless Wednesday” type post that combines photos from my 2 stays.  Please feel free to ask me any questions about my time at this resort and I’ll be happy to answer!  Post comments and questions below or on my Facebook page!

Here we go!

At Home, Disney

Texting. Typing. Lifting. Holding. Waving.  Our fingers do a lot and draw a lot of attention, sooo….Disney-fy them!

I used to try easier tactics – red nails with white spots for Minnie…glitter nail polish for pixie dust…all good efforts…but nothing compared to the Pinterest pictures I’ve seen.  Well, I do not have the talent to paint those intricate designs and I’ve asked many manicurists if they would give them a try – but no luck.

A high school friend recently started selling Jamberry nail wraps and posted on Facebook that they now sell Disney themed nail wraps.  I had to give them a try!

I ordered 2 sets:  Aurora’s Castle and Mad for Minnie.

Last month I posted about wearing my Aurora’s Castle and the coordinating polish I added (read here). Today I decided to go red with Mad for Minnie.  Putting the wraps on isn’t Continue Reading

Midday Magic!

After an amazing start to our day at the Magic Kingdom (you can read about it here) we kept the non-stop magic going!

Right after the show it started to pour!  Luckily it was time for us to use our first FastPass+ of the day, so no waiting in line in the rain for us! We headed over to the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, passed the Dwarfs’ cottage and entered the mine.
