When it comes to footwear in the parks, everyone has their own style. After about an hour in any Disney park, we all come to the same conclusion …. comfort is of the utmost importance. I have heard of guests walking 9, 1, or even 15 miles in a single day in the parks. So, having apporate footwear can sometimes make or break parts of your day and even your whole trip. There’s nothing worse than getting to about 6pm and having the achy feet start. In the back of your mind, you realize you still have three hours till fireworks and possibly five plus hours till any sign of bed. I used to find myself sacrificing style for comfort. That is, I did until TOMS unveiled their collaboration with Disney.

Shop Disney has you covered with leashes, dog bowls, and chew toys cute enough to eat… almost. So, here are a few of my favorites. All items can be found at ShopDisney.com and come highly recommended by my DoleWhipPup, Gwennie. (Pictured above)

I spend most of my time at Disney with my 3-year-old daughter Eliora…. alone. Thats right, I have been taking my daughter to Walt Disney World weekly, by myself, since she was 2. I am blessed enough to have a very flexible work schedule while my amazing hubby doesn’t. Eliora and I would both love to have him with us on every trip — especially those days when it’s about 2:30pm and it’s hot and crowded, and we’ve had 2 time-outs, one accident, and a few tears — mostly mine. Sometimes, I wonder why in the world I do this to myself. Those days can be tough without help. But, I know that when I look back at this time in our lives, I will only remember the magic and the bond that we created. And when Eliora gets older, I can lovingly point out all the places she sat in time-out as a little girl — to her husband.
If you didn’t already know, WDW’s World of Disney store at Disney Springs has been under renovation since earlier in the year. This past week, a huge portion of the store that had been closed off for work, was opened. Disney fans’ reactions were … well… mixed. I saw a few bloggers who said they loved it. The modern industrial feel felt way more spacious and seemed to be a good fit for the ever-evolving Disney Springs. Others thought it lost what made it “Disney.” Where was the magic? That, my friends, was my thought exactly. Where was the magic?
As we welcome in July, we welcome the hotter-than-the-sun temperatures at Walt Disney World. So, its time to beat the heat with these awesome products, perfect for your summer adventures! If you haven’t already taken the time to check out How to Keep You and Your Family Cool in Disney as well as the Zadd Crew podcast- episode 98 How to beat the heat in Disney, both have awesome tricks, tips, and products for your next Disney World stay. Now, lets chat about things you need to snag before hitting the parks to keep you cool.
One of my favorite Pixar films, Wall-E, is celebrating it’s ten-year anniversary this week! June 27th, 2008 was Wall-E’s United States release date. Although I did not get to watch Wall-E in theaters, it definitely stood out to me in the line of Pixar box office smash hits. If you haven’t had a chance to watch, basically Wall-E is a sweet, adventure-seeking robot. His name stands for his job: Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-class. In laymen’s terms, he is a trash collecting robot who compacts each piece to condense the amount of waste and pollution left by humans on Earth. He is the last of his kind, and soon meets Eve. Sparks fly, literally, and the rest is history. Not only does Wall-E have a great story line, filled with love, laughs, and quirky moments, but it hits home with a very important message about taking care of the earth.
We all have it, our favorite Disney treat. I know many people reading this must be Dole Whip lovers, like me. I mean, whats not to love? It’s pineapple soft serve swirled with creamy vanilla! You guessed it – I am a Dole Whip swirl gal. Maybe you’re more of a classic Disney treat lover. Of course, a Mickey Bar is a must-have. No brainer there, right?
Coming soon: the newest additions to the Minnie Ear collection! The Iridescent Minnie Ears and Mickey Ice Cream Bar Ears will be coming first to Disneyland this summer. Their release in Walt Disney World will follow in July! I can hardly wait to snag a pair!! What about you?
In case you haven’t noticed, park fashion has greatly changed. More though, detail and style are being put into each outfit. From Disneybounding looks (check out Kim’s article here for more information on Disneybounding Basics ) to vintage dresses and dapper clad-park goers, Walt Disney World is fastly becoming a very stylish place to show your Disney style. With many ways to express yourself and your love for all things Mickey Mouse, I thought I would share a newer brand that you should know about — Cakeworthy!
The newest craze in Walt Disney World wall selfies is here! It contains everyone’s favorite shade – You guessed it – Rosegold! This new wall comes just after the Disneyland release of Loungefly’s rosegold backpack and wallet earlier in the week. Already, both items are taking social media by storm showing us that rosegold isn’t going anywhere.
It’s finally here – Summer! (Please tell me you read that in Olaf’s voice.) It’s the time of year for fun in the sun, big family trips, and hopefully a little sand between your toes. If you’re planning a trip to Disney’s Vero Beach Resort or Aulani, or on any of Disney’s cruise ships, this shopping list is for you! Let’s cover some packing fun with nautical and mouse themed travel items.

The end of school looming and the weather heating up can only mean one thing. Summer is right around the corner and so is one of Amercians favorite holidays, the Fourth of July. Disney has unveiled its American Legend collection celebrating both the Independence Day and, well… Mickey. The theme of the collection is Laugh, Love, Mickey. This collection celebrates what both America and Mickey stand for: “original and one of a-kind.” Of course Red, White, and Blue is the main color scheme in this collection featuring both apparel and home decor. That makes these items some of our top take-home treasures this summer as they will be sure to remind you each year of the magic and memories you made on your Disney World trip.
First rose gold, then millennial pink, now Rainbow.
Today, Disney Style announced the upcoming release of sequin rainbow Minnie ears – a much-awaited fashion statement. Although there is no official release date for these ears to hit the parks, I can imagine these will be quick to sell out once they arrive (as did the rainbow Mickey hat – which is still a unicorn in its own right).
