Happy New Year! Thanks for stopping by to see what I'm digging in this week's Disney edition (yes, I just got back from four magical days)! Don't forget to pop over to the other gals' sites to see what they're loving, too: Misha, Kendra, Mary Beth, and Amanda.
ONE: Chicago Bears Almost Right Sweaters
Back in August (when the Bears had potential), I pre-ordered these Almost Right Sweaters to give my family as Christmas gifts. We had booked a trip to Walt Disney World for New Year's and I had visions of the whole gang walking about the parks in festive matching attire. They arrived in late September and I was extremely excited. Unfortunately, week by week, the Bears turned uglier than the sweaters. In November, I noticed that the box they had been shipped in was a recycled Aaron Rodgers doll carton. Bad karma! Anyways, I apologetically presented them to my family at Christmas. Thankfully, they were still thrilled with their gifts. My vision came to life on Wednesday when the Orlando air chilled to sweater weather. We spent NYE at Disney Studios sporting our loud tribute to our hometown team. It's amazing how many people shouted out "Da Bears!" or came up to chat about the sweaters. Turns out, they were an awesome investment....Cutler, not so much.
Toy Story Midway Mania! is a relatively new ride at Hollywood Studios. Like Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin, this is a game-style ride. You wear 3-D glasses and play five carnival digital games. The wait time is still really long, though, so I recommend booking a Fastpass as early as possible.
THREE: Dole Pineapple Whip
Dole Pineapple Whip is my favorite snack in Disney. It's a super fresh vegan option that is full of pineapple flavor. I've had it at Disneyland, WDW, and at the Dole Pineapple Plantation in Hawaii. It never disappoints! I even bought a Pineapple Whip air freshener for the car.
I loooooove Christmas lights and The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights does not disappoint. It is an amazing show with over 5 million bulbs burning bright in Disney's Hollywood Studios. This dazzling display envelopes you in a colorful world of Holiday fun! Basically, it's like your walking in a giant Lite Brite. #winning
Hope you had an awesome holiday! Welcome, 2015! See ya next week.
