4 Things I always take pictures of ~ 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.

This week's theme is 4 Things. Any four things!
I chose 4 shots I take every time I visit Walt Disney World. They aren't always perfect and sometimes they are just awful but they are my cherished memories of that visit which makes them priceless to me.

Family and friends are my most photographed subject. That seemed too obvious so I have included photos I always take without people. The castle day or night from just about any angle. During shows, fireworks I can never get enough. My favorite attraction that day. I go through phases of favorites. Everyone teases me because I always snap a shot of my food before I start eating. I also get teased for taking pictures of the resort room before the bags are unpacked.



What are your 4 things? They could be things you love, hate, eat, will never do again, would do over?


Everybody neat and pretty?

Wordless Wednesday | Epcot Fun, Food and Flowers

This year Walt Disney World is celebrating 24 years of the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival with the theme, “Welcome Spring Fun, Food, and Flowers,” which was inspired by a vintage Walt Disney short film that featured Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Daisy, and Pluto.

We're doing a flashback to a few of the fun times we've had at Epcot's Flower and Garden Festival since 1994 for this week's theme,
Fun, Food and Flowers.

Almost #WW Linky | Be Our Guest Restaurant Details

With this week’s release of the highly-anticipated live-action adaptation of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, I thought it would be fun to have a closer look at some of the details you may discover at Be Our Guest Restaurant in New Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World Resort.


Throughout the restaurant you'll find roses in the design and decor. The rose represents the Beast's "countdown clock" to finding true love and accepting it.
You'll see them from the royal crest and iron gates, the gargoyles guarding the entrance and into the elegant Ballroom, the elegant Rose Gallery, and then to the dark West Wing where the Enchanted Rose is under glass slowly dropping petals as it counts down.

Be Our Guest Restaurant is a quick serve table service dining experience. For the menu click here.
Don't forget to try "The Grey Stuff", it's delicious.

What is your favorite quick serve restaurant? What do you usually order?

Wordless Wednesday - Happy International Woman's Day!!

Today is March 8th and we are celebrating International Woman's Day #Disneystyle. The day focuses on social, political, cultural, economic achievements and contributions of women in the world.

I thought it would be fun to feature a few of my favorite strong female characters and on a more serious not a video of Emma Watson speaking to the UN on women's issues in 2015.

Trailer Talk: Beauty and the Beast

Disney’s live-action adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast” (Disney)

The new trailer for Disney’s live-action adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast” debuted on ABC’s broadcast of  “The Bachelor” featuring new footage and Ariana Grande and John Legend’s duet of the iconic song Beauty and the Beast.
Directed by Bill Condon, the film brings the story and characters audiences know and love to a stunning, cinematic event.

About the Film

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs.

“Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within. 

The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

Almost Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop - Love Theme

Welcome, so glad you stopped by The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic.com where each week we link up and share our #WW #DisneySide Wordless Wednesday or Almost Wordless Wednesday Disney related blog posts.

Disney movies are filled with songs of love and lyrics that pull lovingly on our heart strings. Since this week's theme is "Love", I thought I'd share the lyrics from one of my all time favorite movies, the 1942 movie, Bambi along with my well loved Disney trip pictures.

Love is a song that never ends

Life may be swift and fleeting
Hope may die, yet love's beautiful music
Comes each day like the dawn

Disney Date Night, Disney Cruise Line,Walt Disney World Resort

Love is a song that never ends

One simple theme repeating
Like the voice of a heavenly choir
Love's sweet music flows on

Walt Disney World Resort

Like the voice of a heavenly choir

Love's sweet music flows on
~Bambi
