Wordless Wednesday | Goofy Day!

Welcome to The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop where each week we gather together and share our Disney vacation photos and hop from blog to blog. Want to link up your #DisneySide pictures? Look no further than the bottom of this post.

Today we are celebrating Goofy Day!
Mickey's whacky pal Goofy first appeared in Mickey's Revue on May 25, 1932, but it wasn't until 1934 that he was named Goofy.
One of my favorite close encounters is with The Great Goofini in Pete’s Silly Sideshow in Magic Kingdom.
There you can meet The Astounding Donaldo, The Great Goofini, Minnie Magnifique and Madame Daisy Fortuna. Two separate lines form to meet the stars. One for Daisy and Minnie and the other is for Donald and Goofy. It's a spacious themed meet and greet with plenty of room for Goofini to ham it up for the cameras.

Happy Birthday, Goofy!! ah-hyuck! hoo hoo hoo hoo!
Happy Goofy Day! The Great Goofini Under The Big Top

Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop | Carousel of Progress

Welcome to The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop where each week we gather together and share our Disney vacation photos and hop from blog to blog. Want to link up your #DisneySide pictures? Look no further than the bottom of this post.

For this week's theme, we are getting in our Wayback Machine and going way-way back to the 1964-65 World's Fair in New York which was my one of my very first Disney attraction experiences.

I was fortunate to visit the NY Word's Fair with my grandmother, mom, and uncle. We didn't know what to expect but I thought at the time that it must be good if so many people were waiting in such a long line in the blazing August sun. Once inside the cool dark theater, it was a refreshing as it is today.
The revolving stage and Audio-Animatronics were amazing and left a big impression.

The last time I saw Carousel of Progress I was with a great group of my blogging buddies during the Type-A Parent Conference making it even more special.

Disney's Wilderness Lodge Resort | Relaxing Wordless Wednesday

Welcome! I'm glad you stopped by for the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop, where bloggers get together and link up their #DisneySide Wordless or Almost Wordless Wednesday posts.

Each week we have a prompt or theme. This week we are enjoying Resorts and Relaxation. With Mother's Day coming up this Sunday I am wishing all of you a most relaxing day. I hope you get to Disneyfy it. I've been very fortunate to spend a few in Walt Disney World and they were the best!

Our DVC home resort is the Boardwalk Villas but it is not our number one choice of relaxing resorts. That honor goes to The Wilderness Lodge, then The Boardwalk Villas, The Grand Floridian, Yacht Club and then my favorite but not my husbands, Animal Kingdom Lodge. Notice a trend here? We enjoy being surrounded by water.


Relaxing at Disney's Wilderness Lodge is easy. Not only are the pools and hot tubs delightful but there is a nice sandy beach and paths through the woods for running or leisurely walks. Ferries are always at the ready for a ride across the bay. What a wonderful way to get around. Renting water mice and buzzing around the bay is a must!

Here Paul is sitting by the fire enjoying some down time while I roam around the lobby snapping pictures and browsing the gift shop.








A relaxing way to end the day!

The Force Is Strong | Almost Wordless Wednesday

Welcome and thanks for stopping by The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic where each week we gather together to link up and share our #DisneySide pictures.

Today's theme is "Your May Calendar Shot" and tomorrow is May 4th, the unofficial "Star Wars Day". As I am a huge Star Wars fan, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite Star Wars moments we've enjoyed at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
The fireworks force is strong this month first with a shot of Magic Kingdom fireworks.

An out of this world Galactic Spectacular Fireworks show. We were able to see but not hear except for the explosions from our balcony at Coronado Springs Resort each night.

I have lots of pictures of the new March of the First Order parade that I'll share at a later date. I wasn't as impressed as I thought I would be. Have you seen it and what did you think?

Happy Pretzel Day! | Almost Wordless Wednesday

Welcome and thanks for stopping by The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic where each week we gather together to link up and share our #DisneySide pictures.

Today is all about Food, something that I thoroughly enjoy photographing. I don't know if it's more of a challenge to get the best shot technically or having to wait to get the shot when I am dying to just dig in. I do try to make do with a fast one take.

Today is also National Pretzel Day! Yay!  How about a Pretzel Roll? Not by itself of course. In the Canadian Kiosk, it's combined with a creamy Cheddar Cheese Soup.  Very memorable and a much needed pick me up after strolling around the World Showcase. We stopped just in time as the rain started as we were finishing up. Remy our mascot for the trip was thrilled to pose with it too.

This is a picture of the main entrance display to the 2016 Epcot Food and Wine Festival at Walt Disney World.

Tell me what your favorite pretzel is and where we can find it.

Almost Wordless Wednesday | Happy Earth Day 2017!

Hey there Disney photography fans. Welcome to The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic.com where each week we get together to share our #DisneySide Wordless Wednesday or Almost Wordless Wednesday Disney related picture posts.

This week our theme is Disney Nature in celebration of the 47th Earth Day which is Saturday, April 22nd.

Disney Parks celebrates Earth Day every day in The Animal Kingdom Park in Florida which opened on April 22, 1998. I'd like to share a few shots of  The Tree of Life the iconic centerpiece of the park and symbolizes the beauty, diversity, and grandeur of our animal life on Earth.

It is covered in beautiful animal carvings that you can see from every angle. The closer you get the more you can see the intricacy of each carving around the base and branches. At night the tree comes alive with The Tree Awaking light show.

"You've probably heard people talk about conservation. Well, conservation isn't just the business of a few people. It's a matter that concerns all of us. It's a science whose principles are written in the oldest code in the world, the laws of nature. The natural resources of our vast continent are not inexhaustible. But if we will use our riches wisely, if we will protect our wildlife and preserve our lakes and streams, these things will last us for generations to come."  

"I have learned from the animal world, and what everyone will learn who studies it is, a renewed sense of kinship with the earth and all its inhabitants."
~ Walt Disney 

Now for my favorite, Kilimanjaro Safaris. This is a popular attraction so you will experience a wait. If you can grab a Fastpass or arrive early. The animals are most active in the morning and during the rain which usually happens in the afternoon. You can read about it here.

How will you celebrate Earth Day? I'll be planting seeds in my garden.

Have a magical day!

DisneySide Wordless Wednesday: Toy Story Mania, Disney's Hollywood Studios

Welcome and thanks for stopping by The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic where each week we gather together to link up and share our #DisneySide.

This week our prompt is Pixar!

Stepping into the world of Pixar at Disney's Hollywood Studios is magical. I love to see the reactions on peoples faces when The Green Army Men spontaneously interact with them. It's hysterical. Toy Story Mania is a must do and of course we never miss an interactive photo op.
