With March comes warmer temperatures, flowers and gardens.

With March comes warmer temperatures, flowers, and gardens.

Hello everyone, and welcome to our Wordless Wednesday blog post.  Special thanks, as always, goes out to my friend Deb from Focused on the Magic for hosting this weekly series.  Today we are taking a look at our March Calendar photos, and I could choose just one, so I’ve got several for you to enjoy!

When I think of March, I think of flowers blooming, gardens getting vibrant colors, the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, and even some music in the rain!  I hope you enjoy each of these photos, they weren’t taken during the month of March because I’ve never been to Disney in March, but I think they would fit for the month.  Enjoy!

The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is a great display of all the creative work that the Imagineers can do!

I love how the sun is shining off the buildings over in China!

Tigger and Sophie!

It’s Wordless Wednesday time, and today we’re focusing on the Disney Letter T for the theme!  I know that a lot of people think of other things when they think of the letter T, but for me, Disney Letter T means one character — Tigger!  Come join me as we bounce from shot to shot, exploring all of our Tiggerific pictures!

Disney Sidekicks

Wordless Wednesday – Disney Sidekicks

Disney Sidekicks

In this photo, Donald Duck is the sidekick to Sophie!

Hello everyone, and welcome to this week’s Wordless Wednesday post! My friend Deb from Focused on the Magic has come up with a great theme this week, titled “Disney Sidekicks”, so let’s get right to it!  In the first picture at the beginning of this post, you see Sophie dancing with Donald Duck!  Since Sophie started dancing first from excitement, that makes Donald Duck her sidekick!

Rover lays down by his Human’s side in this scene from the Carousel of Progress!

In this next shot, Rover (do I have it right — for some reason my brain is drawing a blank this time!) is part of the scene from the 20s.  I would say that he is definitely the Disney sidekick this time!

Sophie sits on Goofy’s lap outside of Tony’s Town Square Restaurant!

This picture is one of the first pictures from our stay in 2007, right after we had eaten at Tony’s Town Square restaurant!  Sophie climbed right up into Goofy’s lap, so I think that makes her Goofy’s sidekick!

Disney Sidekicks

Sophie is MY Disney Sidekick for almost all things Disney!

Last, but certainly not least, I share this photo of Sophie near Cinderella Castle.  In almost all things Disney, Sophie is my Disney Sidekick!  She has written on the blog, she helps plan the trips, she tells everyone about my travel agent gig, and most of all, she helps Cindy and I have as much fun at Disney as we possibly can.

Wordless Wednesday – January Calendar Shot

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Wordless Wednesday post for this week! Our theme this week is our January Calendar Shot, and as always, I would like to thank Deb from Focused on the Magic for hosting this weekly series.  Today I’ve got quite a few photos to share with you, and since tomorrow is New Year’s Day, I figured what better way to kick off our January calendar photo than with some great fireworks!  The top picture is but one of many, and this was taken in July, 2013, during Illuminations when we were part of a Dessert Party.  I have more photos to share from this same event, I hope you like them!

I love the sparkle effect that this shot brings!

Lastly, here is a shot that takes us back to June, 2010.  This shot was taken the year that Disney introduced the Summer Nightastic series, and has been a favorite shot of mine for a long time.  I hope you enjoy!

That wraps us up for our last Wordless Wednesday post of 2013.  I hope you all have a great and happy New Year, and that you are safe and secure wherever you spend your time.  May 2014 bring you all the joy, happiness, and peace that you deserve, and thanks!  Now, please click on the button below and check out the rest of the entries in this great series!

Hello my friends, and welcome to our Wordless Wednesday post for this week!  The theme this week from my friend Deb from Focused on the Magic is your December Calendar Shot, and I am pleased as punch to be able to share some incredible photos from Wilderness Lodge courtesy of my friend Andy from WDW Shutterbug.  His photography skills are incredible, and believe me, I am the benefactor of his good will in sharing his photos.  If you haven’t seen any of his photos, take a look at these posts — one was showcasing some of the Christmas beauty of the Magic Kingdom, and another was taking a look at all the incredible lights of The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights!

Now, sit back, relax, and picture in your minds eye exactly what your stay would be like if you were able to spend time at Wilderness Lodge during the Christmas season.  I think it would be absolutely incredible, and I can’t wait until the time that I am able to do just that one year!
