It’s Princess/Villain Time!!

It’s Princess/Villain Time!!

Move over little Dora, the Disney Makeover is going ADULT!

Disney World has been offering the opportunity for little ones to get the ultimate Disney makeover for years.  They can be a prince, knight, pirate, mermaid or princess.  The only catch was you had to be between 3 to 12 years old.

NOT ANY LONGER!!!

Announcing “Character Couture” makeover packages, now available at Walt Disney World!  These makeovers involve intricate hairdos, elaborate eye makeup and a pop of color on the cheeks and lips.   Wanna be a princess?  Wanna be a villain?  Maybe a Star Wars Jedi?  Done.  Done and Done!

Pricing depends on the age group and the level of makeup, but range from $50 to $120.  There are many locations around the Walt Disney Resorts that offer these packages.  I think it might be time for another trip to Florida.  Now I just have to convince Hot Hubby.

Woody is Home!!

Woody is Home!!

I love all things Disney.  And my kids were the perfect age for the Toy Story movies.  I loved Toy Story!  I frequently quote the line “There is a snake in my boot,” for easing the tension in a situation. My daughter is named Jesse, so we fit right into Toy Story 2.

I have a small issue from the Toy Story 3, because I still have a few toys from my mother and have saved my most treasured toys, to share with my grandchildren.  I just don’t understand why someone would let those favorite toys leave the family.  Andy  must be a minimalist who is cleaning house, or he didn’t really love those toys.

Disney is having the last laugh though, as Woody comes home!   On June 30, 2018 the Toy Story Land will open in Hollywood Studios and this week a giant Woody was installed to watch over the land.

From the Disney Parks Woody in Toy Story landblog, “Standing nearly 20 feet tall, Woody will appear as a part of the new Toy Story Land marquee, which sits just in front of one of the land’s most anticipated attractions, the Slinky Dog Dash coaster. He’s tipping his hat (which measures 7’ feet, brim to brim!), next to the marquee, which is made out of blocks and a 4-foot-tall yo-yo – just a few of the many toys that make up Toy Story Land.”

Welcome home Woody!
