Shopping At Walt Disney World: Fun Shirts For Men

Shopping for t-shirts for my husband at Walt Disney World can be challenging, because he loves showing his #DisneySide but he also looks for shirts with personality.

When I was strolling through MouseGear at Epcot, I was really excited to see some newer shirts that I thought that he would love!

So, let’s go shopping at Walt Disney World for some fun shirts for men!

I love the ‘Old Postcard’ feel of this shirt!!! Plus orange is a great color to wear in the parks!

ROYGBIV: A Pixar Supercut

ROYGBIV

ROYGBIV: A Pixar Supercut came across my Facebook News Feed earlier this week, and I think I have watched it at least once a day since!

This “one minute supercut examining (and celebrating) Pixar’s use of color” edited by Rishi Kaneria is stunning!

I find myself re-watching this video, because the transition from color to color is so subtle that it is fun to try to find where the change begins. However, the biggest thing that I find myself getting lost in is just how perfectly the color really plays such a huge part of the Pixar Movies.

Disneyland Holidays Returning

Last year I was fortunate enough to experience Disneyland at the holidays for the first time. It really is the most wonderful time of the year to be at the Disney Parks. Yesterday the Disney Parks Blog announced the return of some of the elements from last year that are returning. I thought I’d share some of my favorite aspects of the holidays between Disneyland, Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney. I also cannot wait to see this again with friends this year.

We started our trip (after the requisite trip to In-N-Out of course) with a visit to Trader Sam’s to see the great holiday decorations and drinks.
