#happyholidays my friends!
🌲This was one of those classic, “what do I do with my hands” situations, in which my great photographer @dressedinmagic said “just leave them there”. Learning how to simplify is EVERYTHING, and I usually suck at it...anyone else?? 😂
I was surprised with tickets to see Frozen on Broadway yesterday and I was so amazed and in awe that I completely forgot to take pictures at the theater 😂 This present came at the perfect time, because I’m once again at a time in my life where I connect to Elsa the most, so seeing @caissielevy completely takeover the stage with her vocals and her emotions as Queen Elsa reminded me once again that love will thaw a frozen heart 💙
Hey fam! Sorry I’ve been a little inactive lately, this holiday season has been exhausting for me! I wanted to let you know that I haven’t forgotten about y’all!
This week two vlogs will go up as well as a haul from my most recent trip to WDW.
Next week I will start my series from my Christmas trip and will most likely post multiple vlogs a week to try to get them all uploaded in time for the holidays.
Get ready for TONS of content!! 🎄
And here's a shot from our wedding when all the stress and nerves were over and we could look forward to our day in MK! We were married on Luau Beach, which was right next to our hotel block Tuvalu, so it was super handy!
Today I am reminiscing about our amazing resort, the Polynesian. Our block was right on the lagoon, you can see it to the left there - Tuvalu. Fun fact - we were in room 2418 and we got married on the 24th day of a month in 2018 😊
Once home to the ever-popular Osborne Lights, Hollywood Studios is re-asserting itself into the convo for the must-do Park during the holidays. It features Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM, a nighttime holiday show featuring fireworks and projections, tons of holiday snacks, and the new Toy Story Land will be decked with holiday decorations!
Come meet Santa until December 24th, then Santa Goofy from December 25th on. DS will also host a Christmas Tree Trail, a walkthrough with trees inspired by your favorite Disney characters, movies, and attractions.
Disney Springs is also a great spot to escape the crowds. With so many new bars and restaurants, and plenty of activities, you'll almost always find something to do. I wouldn't recommend DS on the weekends, though, as it tends to get really crowded.
Last night we watched Illuminations from the spot we got engaged two years ago! Holiday Illuminations is one of Dillan and I’s absoulty favorite things about Disney, and and just like with Illuminations I’m so sad its going away ( and that part of it already has 😭). Here’s hoping they will bring back the full show before it completely goes away! 😩
Here’s one for #MagicKingdomMonday I can’t wait to be back in the Magic Kingdom tomorrow, hopefully Annabelle will be feeing better. We took her to the doctor this morning...thankfully no flu or respiratory infection, so hopefully she will be better soon.
I am literally sobbing over this amazingly magical piece of art created by @raisedonmagic . She is the sweetest! And this literally means SO MUCH to me and I’ve been excited about this since I messaged her about it. If you are not following her you need to be! Thank you @raisedonmagic for bringing some magic to my day! 💖
Also, I have changed my Instagram name! MandaShine87 will always be a part of my heart and soul and I will always shine shine shine! But I also feel this community has brought magic into my life so Magically Manda felt fitting! Happy Monday loves!
Oh my gosh!!!! Has everyone visited the Christmas Tree Trail at Disney Springs?! One of my clients sent me this picture because she knows Mickey is my FAVORITE, and I’m dying!!! I love all of these trees, but this one is soooooo adorable!! 😍
🤖 In this classic video from @waltdisneyworld, Walt Disney shows off his audio animatronic technology. Trivia: the original voice of the father of this family was Rex Allen (1964). His voice can still be heard today, but he no longer plays the father. Which two characters does he voice in the current version? 🇺🇸
