    Oh Heimlich, Mein Heimlich

    The internet seems to be pretty upset over the loss of Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train with the announcement of Marvel moving in. Seems like these fans have come out of nowhere…but did they truly love Heimlich? Most of our friends and family know how much Randy and I truly loved this ride. Tell me this… Did they wait a few ride cycles to get their own train? Or ride Heimlich in the rain? Did they get stuck on the ride and feel totally okay with it? And ride in the front? And the back? (while pondering the allegorical nature of Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train  no less) And fill a whole…

    10 Ideas for Disneybounding with Glasses

    As glasses wearer and Disneybound enthusiast I sometimes find myself feeling like my look isn’t exactly perfect because my glasses don’t quite work. Then it hit me – THERE ARE SO MANY FUN CHARACTERS WITH GLASSES! I’m not sure why it took me so long to realize this but I recently did the Warby Parker Home Try-On and realized a few of the frames I had picked out reminded me of Disney characters. At that point I started to go down the rabbit hole of trying to find glasses that could work for Disneybounding which is what led me to this post. There are definitely a lot of places I…

    You NEED Hand Painted Disney Shoes For Your Next Trip

    In one of my recent posts about what to pack on a Disney vacation I listed comfortable shoes as a must-have item. Many of my recent Disneyland trips have been more laid back so my go to shoe has been the glitter Keds by Kate Spade (available at Kate Spade or Keds.) Since I’m local to Disneyland and typically don’t spend full days there I’ve been starting to explore some wild shoe options.   Disclosure: Some of the links in this post may be affiliate links, meaning, at no cost to you, I may earn a small commission if you click through and make a purchase.

    Recently I’ve been getting a lot of comments from friends and followers on social media that it looks like I’m at Disneyland every single day.

In fact, many of you may know me from Instagram but now that I have a better process in place for managing my accounts I am more active on Pinterest and Facebook…

    The Tam O’Shanter – Walt Disney’s Spots

    Today’s post continues my series of exploring some of the places around Los Angeles Walt Disney frequented when he was alive.  Be sure to check out my previous post about the Griffith Park Merry Go Round.   Opened in 1922, The Tam O’Shanter Inn is a family restaurant in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles — not terribly far from the Walt Disney Studios lot.  Driving down Los Feliz an old school neon sign guides visitors to what looks like an unassuming, if not slightly out of place, structure resembling a very large English cottage.  Pulling into the driveway, I was helped out of your vehicle by the complimentary…

    Top 10 Items For Your Disney Vacation!

    Packing for a Disney vacation can be exciting but also a bit stressful at times. Thankfully you can always count on Amazon to get you everything you need at the last minute! If it wasn’t for Amazon I would be completely lost on how to get everything I needed at the last minute. In fact – for our last trip we ordered groceries from Amazon Prime Now that were delivered to our hotel room while we were out in the parks. We decided to take another trip to Walt Disney World (our second trip ever!) in May so I started to think about all the things I need to get together…
