The Weekly Roundup ~ 10/28/12

Welcome back to another Week in Review of Focused on the Magic! We managed to stay focused on the magic of Disney World with photos, contests, and great Disney online reads this week as we prepared for "Frankenstorm", the mega hurricane that is about to hit us hard here in NJ. 
We're keeping everyone in the Northeast in our thoughts and prayers. We're also hoping this storm passes quickly and quietly so that we can get on with Halloween and finding out who moves on to the Disney Mom's Panel;)


Let's take a look at our roundup of pixie dusted postulations from this past week...

Destination Disney ~ Mrs. Incredible Quote

"Don't think, and don't worry. If the time comes, you'll know what to do."~Mrs. Incredible
This quote made me think of the way I like to tour the parks, camera in hand and ready to snap. I rarely put my camera away because you just never know when a photo op will happen.
We were touring Disney Hollywood Studios Animation Building one day when all of a sudden out of nowhere FroZone appeared! It was the first time I'd ever seen him and I really wanted a picture for my character collection.  
 
FroZone, The Incredibles, Disney Quote | Focused on the Magic

Luckily I had my camera ready and quickly snapped a few as he dashed away.

Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by Focused on the Magic.com
Welcome to The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic.com where each week Disney Bloggers gather to blog hop, link up and share their Disney Wordless Wednesday or Almost Wordless Wednesday Disney related picture posts.

It's a fun blog hop for sharing your Disney memories and pictures. There's a theme each week that you can follow if you wish. Facebook pictures, Twitter, Tumblr, RedditFlickr or video posts are all welcome. You can even email your pictures and I will be happy to add them to this page. 

The theme for this week's Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop, 10/24/12 is

"Disney Attire or Costuming"

The most beautiful costumes in Disney World are worn by the Voices of Liberty. Since this is supposed to be wordless I'll keep my comments short -- Don't touch these American Adventure treasures!

Tuesday Trivia ~World Showcase

Did you know? There's a reason why the Epcot Imagineers constructed the Canada Pavilion and Mexico Pavilion in World Showcase in their respective locations.

These two countries border the United States to the north and south. If you go left or right entering the World Showcase you will visit one of our neighbors first.

I found out that bit of trivia with Lou Mongello's WDW Disney World Trivia iPhone app

Even a Disneyland Gingerbread House Can be Scary


Recently our Disneyland InsidEARS Community Manager, Kelly shared a fun video of the preparations involved in making the Haunted Gingerbread House in Disneyland. In it we can see how ordinary gingerbread is transformed into a Halloween attraction. Even a gingerbread house can be scary during Halloween Time at Disneyland Resort


This is the twelfth year Jack Skellington and his horrific Halloween buddies have taken over the Haunted Mansion for the holiday season. Which gingerbread house throughout the years has been your favorite?
