Picture of the Week: Disney is not just for kids!


Today is the last day to book a trip to Disney with Mickey picking up the tab for meals!  If you travel between August 24 and September 29 you can get free dining during your stay.  It's a great time to go because with school back in session, the parks are not too crowded.

Also - don't forget to enter my first giveaway - and win a Disney parks lanyard + eleven pins to start your pin trading adventure.

Now - for our picture of the week:

Last year, I took a mom's trip with two great friends - we had free dining and great amounts of fun - all leaving our kids at home for TEN days!  I highly recommend an adult trip - whether it's a long one or just a long weekend.  It's such a different dynamic - and one that I can't wait to repeat again this fall.

Please email me at and we can talk details about your next trip to the World!

Picture of the Week: Dragon Topiary

We very much enjoyed the Flower and Garden festival this year at Epcot.  My favorite of the topiaries was the dragon in the lily pond in China.  I loved that every few minutes, the topiary would "breathe" by misting the flowers in its mouth. 

What about you?  Did you have a favorite this year?  Please email me if you'd like some details about going to Disney next year during the Flower and Garden Festival -

Picture of the week

Have I mentioned how much I love Disney? :-)  And at Disney, some of my very favorite things are are in the little details.  Like trying on Kimonos in Japan.  Or getting some "Beaver Butt" soap in Canada.  Or finding DiVine in Animal Kingdom.

But sometimes, one finds things off the beaten path that are just odd.

In Hollywood studios, in the Echo Lake area - right by the exit from the American Idol experience, you can find the Academy of Arts and Sciences Hall of Fame plaza.  And here there are busts of well known TV starts - like Bill Cosby.  Bob Newhart.  And even Disney himself.

And then.  There is the bust of Oprah Winfrey.  And her likeness.  Well.  We find it rather frightening.

What about you?  What is the quirkiest thing you have found at Disney?

Picture of the Week

This picture was taken last April when I surprised my girls with a trip to Sea World during our Spring Break.  We couldn't get that close and not visit Disney, so I let them choose which park we would visit - as we just had a budget for one day - and they both choose to go to Epcot.  This photo was taken in the world showcase - in China - with Germany and Italy across the lagoon.

I can't wait to go back next week for our Spring break this year - just 5 more days til we leave!!

If you'd like to see more Disney photos, please check out Deb's Focused on the Magic site!

Be sure to come back tomorrow - I'll have a review of our stay at the Beach Club resort.
