Disney Bounding- Sadness

sadnesssmiles

Smile Pretties! It is Friday and I am feeling fabulous and wish you love and happiness for your weekend adventures!  If you are in the Orlando area you may want to find Adventure at Disney Springs for the Road to the Races tour where you can see Lightning McQueen and other Cars 3 stars.  This event is scheduled through Sunday.  Don’t worry if you are not able to attend you can still enjoy the event!!! I will go live on my Instagram this weekend while attending the event found on the Marketplace side.  If you are following me on Instagram  you will receive a notification when I go live and if you are not following me @forkandspoonley you really should hit that follow button.  I will try to do more live feeds from the parks and when we are out and about as much as I can.  If you would like more information about the Road to the Races tour you can find it here:  Cars3tour.  The tour is kicking off here in Orlando and making it’s way around the USA!

So, today I wanted to share with you a Disney Bounding look I put together for one of my favorite characters from Pixar’s movie INSIDE OUT.  There is just so much to love about her.   I just want to hug her and turn her blue into a new hue.  SADNESS!

So here I am with @JulietTheFirst as “Joy and Sadness” as we took over headquarters.  This was truly an emotional day.

Disney Bounding is tons of fun and acquires a lot of attention from cast members, characters, and other guests.  Overall it adds to the magic of the day!  So to complete this look you will need a blue wig, large-black circle glasses, blue dress with Peter Pan collar, nude colored flats, and blue lace peek a boo socks.

You can find the wig and dress on Amazon.  To keep within the Disney Guidlines for dressing up in the park I chose to wear the dress vs the sweater and pants look that Sadness rocks so well.  Simply because the wig and glasses really made the look.

 

Do you Disney Bound?  Share your Dressed in Disney looks below!!!  I would love some new inspiration.  Also, if you would like to see me Disney Bound as a specific character around the parks post your suggestion in the comments.

Bring Home the Magic!

Ever go home after a week long trip to Disney and wish you were still amidst all the magic? No need to wish upon a star; bring home the magic by  purchasing  your very own Disney Print.  Vision Fine Art prints beautiful reproductions of Disney’s masterpieces.  Specializing in watercolor and vintage reproductions this husband and wife team can  make your decor dreams come true, through the beauty of art.  Each print is printed on luster paper using a commercial printer.  The bold colors created by the archival inks make these prints ideal for any Disney enthusiast.  I absolutely love the vintage reproductions of Dumbo, Alice in Wonderland, and Monstro the Whale.

They are much like the classical posters  that make their home along the wall  of the magical gateway into Magic Kingdom.   No matter which design you choose, it’s sure to complement any home decor.  The retro prints that Vicky so graciously shared with me are the start to my new Disney wall and add a touch of pixie dust to my shabby chic home.  Vicky and her husband Earl are dedicated to providing high quality prints and full customer satisfaction. They deliver smiles with every order!

Read what previous customers are saying about Vision Fine Art:

 “Beautiful prints! Owner was very helpful.. Will be buying from them again. Thank you Vicky!”

“Shipped super fast, the print arrived in perfect condition! Will recommend to others looking for Disney repro prints.”

“Print was exactly as described and shipping was quick. It was shipped between cardboard to ensure that it would not get bent in the mail. I really appreciated that. Thank you, I can not wait to give this as a birthday gift.”

Be the fairest of all the land in these pretty Cinderella Glass Slipper inspired Minnie Mouse ears by Luby and Lola.  When placed on your head, you will transform into the beautiful princess that you were always meant to be as if the Fairy Godmother, herself stirred up a bit of magic.  These ears are made to shimmer, shine, and sparkle using a glitter fabric, a sparkly blue hair bow, and topped off with a crystal heart detail.  The headband is lightweight and flexible providing a comfortable fit as you wear them for extended periods, like Disney Fun Days!  100% headache free- this is an added bonus!  I enjoyed wearing these ears all day while we played at Magic Kingdom without feeling the pressure around my temples.  Oh, and let me not forget to share…they are perfect for kids of all ages.  Lola Hancock, the artist behind the ears strives to bring magic and a smile to everyone that purchases a pair of her delicate princess inspired Minnie ears.

Truly fit for a princess!   In fact, when we were walking past Cinderella’s Castle in Fantasyland we heard the town crier delivering  this very proclamation:

 

dscn7192“Hear Ye, Hear ye!  All ye Kings and Queens, Knights and Nobles!  May it be known that on this day, the 7th of June 2016 Princess Cinderella has declared Lola Hancock as maker of the fairest of all the ears known throughout the land.  All maidens shall wear Luby and Lola’s sparkly ears to the next ball and dance the night away – bibbidi-bobbidi-boo!”

New Frozen Ride- Second longest wait time in Walt Disney World History!

13423401_512245538975977_1462168981_n(1)It was nearly 100 degrees on the second official day of summer here in Florida, but with the opening of the NEW Frozen Ever After ride in Epcot it seems things are about to get a whole lot cooler around here.   The highly anticipated Frozen ride packed in guests from all over the world making this the second longest wait time ever recorded at Walt Disney World.   Wait times on opening day were as long as 300 minutes only an hour after the park opened and wrapped all the way around the world showcase.  Soarin’ beats this with a standby wait time recorded at 305 minutes on New Years Eve a few years back.  (Touring Plans) An unnamed cast member informed guests that wait times were actually longer for Frozen Ever After, but showed 300 minutes because that was the highest number they can display on the wait board.  Sadly, I was not one of the lucky first time riders…I was actually stuck in an office working. Had I been off I would have been in line waiting at park opening just so I could go down in history as an opening day rider.  I do have a Fast Pass to ride in July!  Which means that I can play it cool and enjoy less then normal wait times for other attractions.  Seriously, with everyone in Norway or somewhere in the world showcase waiting on line for the new attraction, even Test Track has less then a 20 minute wait!

Also new in Norway character meet and greets with Ana and Elsa!
