Citizens of Hollywood (Streetmosphere) at Disney's Hollywood Studios ~ Disney Couture

Welcome and thanks for stopping by The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic.com. Each week we gather with bloggers to link up and share our #DisneySide Wordless Wednesday Disney vacation picture posts. I hope you'll join us by linking up your pictures and hopping to see all the great vacation photos the blogs have posted.

This week's theme is Disney Couture.

We see uniquely designed and themed fashions on Cast Members everywhere in the parks. I chose to share pictures of the 
Citizens of Hollywood (Streetmosphere) at Disney's Hollywood Studios. They always have the most authentic and detailed looking costumes from a time when fashion was flamboyant and fun. Each dress is a work of art and tailored to the actresses onstage personality making it a fashion statement.

A Look at Disneynature Next Film, "Monkey Kingdom" Trailer

As a huge Disneynature film fan I have been anticipating the release of "Bears" on April 18th. Ever since I posted the first "Bears" poster and trailer I've been captivated by the images."Bears" is a True Life Adventure showcasing a year in the life of a bear family as two impressionable young cubs are taught life’s most important lessons. 
Now a new True Life Adventure film will swing into theaters in April 2015.
How exciting! Have a look at the poster and trailer and tell me if you too are excited.
Disneynature’s “Monkey Kingdom” spotlights the gripping reality of a newborn monkey and its mother, struggling to survive within the competitive social hierarchy of the Temple Troop, a dynamic group of monkeys who live in ancient ruins found deep in the storied jungles of South Asia, alongside a rich cast of forest characters.

Foodie Friday: Dole Whip With Siesta Key Spiced Rum at Epcot Flower & Garden Festival

Welcome to this week’s Foodie Friday where we share our favorite food finds with our friends. This week we are taking a look back at the 2013 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival. It was the first year food booths were introduced to the festival and we couldn't be happier. Having food booths complimented the already fabulous flower and garden experience beautifully.


Our Favorite Food Find: Dole Whip with Siesta Key Spiced Rum

Location: Pineapple Promenade at Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival

Price: $6.25

Dole Whip with Siesta Key Spiced Rum at Epcot's Flower and Festival

As you may already know I am a huge fan of Dole Whips. I've written about them frequently a lot! You can peruse my posts about Disney Dole WhipsHERE

When it was announced that there would be an alcoholic version of the Dole Whip served during the Flower and Garden Festival I couldn't wait to give it a try even though I usually don't drink adult beverages. This was a special occasion so I gave it a try and not before asking the CM to go light on the rum. I wanted to be able to walk around the World Showcase not stumble.The weather wasn't in our favor and I knew we only had a few minutes to enjoy our Dole Whips so we grabbed a table with a view and settled in until the rain came. Rain is Florida can be biblical and it was. Up popped the umbrella and on went the ponchos while we finished  our whips and enjoyed the view.

The Dole Whip with 
Siesta Key Spiced Rum was delicious with just the right amount of rum added to it. It still had the classic creamy cold sweet pineapple flavor but with a little kick in each bite. The rum they used is very good. It had just the right taste of spices and honey. What's even better is that it's made in Florida. I like that Disney is supporting local businesses. 
I'll always prefer my Dole Whips straight without rum but this was a nice change and I look forward to having another one on our next Flower and Garden Festival adventure in May.

Siesta Key Spiced Rum is hand-crafted in small batches in Sarasota, Florida at our small, artisan distillery. We make our spiced rum by infusing our award winning rums with real spices and then adding honey for a bit of sweetness. We do not use any artificial flavors or sweeteners and you can taste the difference. Siesta Key Spiced rum is unlike any mass market spiced rums.

DecalGirl Disney Skin {Review} Giveaway

As many of you know I love of all things Disney and I also have quite a collection electronic devices. From laptops and tablets to SmartPhones and iPhones, iPads and MP3 players my family is has it all. It's the decadence of this decade that has us fully under it's spell but that's a debate for another day.
I also love to give Disney related things away! Today we have a review and DecalGirl Giveaway for you!

DecalGirl Disney Skin {Review} Giveaway


DecalGirl contacted me a few months ago with the announcement that they had just signed a licensing agreement with Disney/Disney Pixar to manufacture high quality skins and case products. I was thrilled for them and announced it right here,
New Disney Skins and Cases from DecalGirl
I have shopped for skins many times and the quality of the artwork and craftmanship of DecalGirls skins surpasses any I've found.
So, when they asked if I'd like to do a review and giveaway of one of the new Disney designs I was over the top excited. Finally, I would get my plain black Acer laptop Disneyfied! Just in time for my upcoming trip to Disney World!

Fasten your seat belts! This week we are entering the Way Back Machine and going Retro.

Last May during the Flower and Garden Festival The Odyssey building in Epcot was open to Annual Passholders to change their paper passes to electronic passes for the start of the new pass system. 

While relaxing in the air conditioning and enjoying a beverage I took the opportunity to browse and snapping a few pictures of a display of memorabilia that was set up in the lobby. 
Fascinating stuff that took me right back to our first trips to Disney World.

Do you have a favorite retro experience?
