Disney Wordless Wednesday – Details, Details…

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 22, 2012 by Lucinda

Welcome to the “Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop!” Many thanks to our wonderful hostess, Deb at Focused on the Magic for having us. Please click her link (above and below in orange text) to see what the Disney Blog Hop is all about.

This week the focus is on Disney details. I narrowed my choices down to a few of my favorites from Epcot. Have you noticed these before? Do you see any hidden Mickeys?

Please note! I have finally moved my blog to a self-hosted site. I’m still at the same URL (, but some things going on in the background are different now.

There are design changes at the new place, but all my posts, photos and comments are the same. One thing that didn’t transfer to the new home is my followers list. So…I would sincerely appreciate it if you could head over to and sign-up again for a subscription. This way I can continue send email updates. Many, many thanks. ~Cindy

Disney Blog Hop – Disney Bucket List

Posted in Thoughts & Opinions with tags , , , on January 26, 2012 by Lucinda

Welcome to the “Disney Blog Hop”…brought to you weekly by Babes in Disneyland. Sincerest thanks to Lisa for providing blog readers and blog writers a place to gather and share Disney passion and information.

This week’s topic is “Disney Bucket List.”

Everyone knows what a bucket list is and many have actually written one. I’ve seen Disney bucket list memes before, but I’ve not ever in my life thought about what mine would include. I think it’s finally time to make one.

1. Behind the Seeds – Living with the Land is easily one of my most favorite attractions at Walt Disney World. I love plants and I’m an avid gardener. One of my oldest daughter’s childhood friends is a manager there and I’m just fascinated and curious about the work she does. I’d love to know more about what’s going on beyond the boat ride. I hope to cross this off my list on my next visit to Walt Disney World…and I hope to do this SOON!

Wave “hello” to Laura!

2. Revamp – I have a long mental list of changes for this blog. I want to become a self- hosted site to give myself more freedom to control my design. I’m currently reading Blog Critique (thanks Donna!) and sitting in on free programming methodology lectures from Stanford.

I want to include more Disney crafts, recipes and party ideas…my head is full of them. I also want to write a formal proposal for a family grand gathering and submit basic park information as blog posts directed towards my sisters. There’s just so much I want to do, that I often overwhelm myself. I need to write up a blog plan and attack it in manageable segments.

3. Family Grand Gathering – For years I’ve hoped to travel to WDW with my four sisters, our families, our father and stepmother. This is no easy feat with all the different schedules and travel budgets. Still, I plan to give it one last shot with my “Sister Series” posts as I attempt to advise and coerce my beloved siblings into a Magical Disney Family Reunion. This ain’t going to be easy. Send pixie dust, folks!

4. Walt Disney World Cast Member – This wish has been with me deeply since late 1998. I’ve actually applied to the Walt Disney Company numerous times and hold each rejection letter dearly as memories of my journey to obtain this goal. I quit applying during the pregnancy and birth of my two youngest children, but they’re school age now…and the fire is burning inside me again…hotter than ever. I want to be a Walt Disney World cast member!

So…what’s on your Disney Bucket List? You don’t have to have a blog to share. Just leave a comment about what Disney wishes you have yet to fulfill.

Almost Wordless Wednesday – JOY! My Christmas Vacations

Posted in Wordless Wednesdays with tags , , , , , , on December 21, 2011 by Lucinda

Recently, while sorting through my Disney Christmas photos, I realized for the first time, that I’ve been to Walt Disney World three times during Christmas. Never on Christmas Eve nor Christmas Day…but I’ve been during the lights and festivities of the holiday. Three times.

My DWW post this week is a slideshow created from photos and video of all three trips. Click play and have a good time. Dance. Sing. Fa la la la la and HO HO HO!

Disney Almost Wordless Wednesday – Thanks for the Memories

Posted in Thoughts & Opinions, Wordless Wednesdays with tags , , , , on November 23, 2011 by Lucinda

Each Disney trip I’ve taken with family has been special to me in some way. One that really stands out among all my Disney memories, took place in December of 2007.

My post this week is from a collection of photos from that holiday vacation with my sister and our families! I’m extremely thankful for the magic we were able to share together.
