Wordy Wednesday: Timothy A. Mouse

Hey there! How;’s it going? Last weeks Wordy Wednesday was how It all started with a mouse ,  but with the announcement of the live-action remake of Dumbo, I got to thinking of another one of my favorite mice, with great advice… Timothy A. Mouse.

“Dumbo, I think your ears are beautiful. Sure, I think they’re decorative.”

A good friend will help you love yourself...

A good friend will help you love yourself…

“…Dumbo, you’re standing on  the threshold of success. Don’t look down, it’ll make you dizzy.”

Keep moving forward...

Keep moving forward…

“You outta be ashamed of yourselves! A bunch of big guys like you, picking on a little guy like him!”

Good friends always have your back...

Good friends always have your back…

“The very things that held you down, are going to carry you up and up and up!”

Embrace your “Glitch” as Vanelope would say 🙂

This week in Storybrooke… Mary-Margret has a nightmare where she’s alone in her home and Maleficent, Ursula, and Cruella, threaten to get even for what she has done to them.

Back in the enchanted Forrest: The evil trio approach Charming and Snow with a plan to stop the evil queen, who has just stolen the dark curse from Maleficent. They propose that they go find the tree of wisdom to find the answer they with the Charming’s help, because they tree will only answer those with a valiant heart. Even though they are untrusting of the Queens of Darkness they realize there’s no other way, so  they agree…

Back in Storybrooke, Emma and David find out that the ladies have visited Mr. Gold’s shop and had taken a wooden box. As they follow them, David pulls them over and searches the car … But doesn’t find the box. But, we see that David found a trinket in the car and is hiding it from Emma. Meanwhile, Regina and Henry are trying to figure out any secrets of the book. They remember that August (Pinocchio) has taken apart the book and added a story before and he might be able to help them understand any secrets of the book.

The Evil trio catch up and Maleficent realizes that the tree did not answer them because Snow is pregnant. Since the unborn child was the product of true love it not only has the power to be a valiant hero, but also a wicked villain. The ladies realize that the Charming’s are no help to them and leave.

Hey there! How’s it going! There are so many iconic things we think of when we think of Disney, but one of my favorites is the big guy himself, Mickey Mouse. With Disney being a world-wide phenomena, sometimes it’s hard to believe that “it all started with a mouse”. Here are some of my favorite Mickey Mouse quotes:

“I’ll be right beside you, because we’re friends.”

Me and Mickey go way back :)

Me and Mickey go way back 🙂

“Your darkness belongs to you, just the same way your light does…”

Bad guys beware...

Once Upon a Time Season 4 Episode 13 Recap (Spoilers)

Hey there! How’s it going? Once Upon a Time is back! The second half of the 4th season premiered tonight! Here’s a quick recap:

The episode starts off with a quick flashback to the Forbidden Fortress where Rumple first assembles Ursula, Maleficent, and Cruella De Vil to get their happy endings.

Queens of Darkness

Then, we flash forward to present day. In Storybrooke, the dust of previous events have started to settle and everyone is trying to get back to “normal”.  With his guilt hanging over him, Hook is looking for ways to get the fairies out of the hat with help from Belle and “magic boxes”.

The newly banish Rumple is now in New York City where he’s staying with Ursula as he tries to get the things needed to get their happy endings. He then recruits Curella and the villains set off on a road trip to Storybroke in Cruella’s awesome Car (complete with a hidden Mickey)

Back in StoryBrooke, Hook and Belle find a ritual to get the fairies out of the hat. Regina performs the ritual and frees the fairies , however, the ritual has also released a black smoke which reveals that the fairies were not the only ones inside the hat-prison. As the smoke rises to the sky, it changes into the chernabog. (The big scary winged monster from Fantasmic)

Back in the flashback mode, Rumple uses the girls to retrieve a curse that’s hidden in a cave by using their talents (IE Cruella’s ability to talk to animals, Maleifecents fire breathing Ursala’s tentacles).  They get through the booby traps with ease. But in Indiana Jones fashion, after the curse is removed from its pedestal, it causes the cave to shake. As the ladies try to catch their bearings thy look to see Rumple about to leave the cave and leave them behind. Not only did he need their talents to retrieve the curse, but after the curse is removed, it causes its guardian  (the chernabog from the hat) to reveal himself. He then finds those with the potential for the most evil and eats them. 

 Flash forward to present day, Regina asks Blue to help her fond the sorcerer to get her happy ending. Blue reveals that the author is the one that can help her get her Happy Ending. Their conversation was cut short, due to the chernabog “messing up property value” perching himself on top of the library.

Rumple sets his plan further into action by having Ursula call Regina to tell her a way to defeat the evil creature, in turn for entry into Storybrooke. With the demon roaring in the background, Regina agrees.

Emma and Regina defeat the chernabog and grant Ursula and Creulla entry into Storybook, much to the dismay of Charming and Snow. The ladies drive into StoryBrooke and kickoff Rumple’s operation “Happy Endings” 

Later that evening, Ursula and Cruella let Rumple back into Storybrooke and he lays out the final steps of his plans. He reveals that Maleficent is not “entirely” dead… And how the chernabog was not after Regina…. But after Emma. 

one-upon-a-time

At the end of the episode we have a late night meeting in the woods with Ursula and Cruella and Snow and Charming. After (pleasant?)ries, It becomes clear that these four have some history from their Enchanted Forest days. Snow makes a (threat) promise to rip out their hearts herself if either one of them cause any trouble (or make mention of their past) .

3. The Dapper Dans. This was my first time seeing the Dapper Dans! I was so excited because going to Dapper Day and seeing the Dapper Dans were both on my “Disney Bucket List”. Being able to do both on the same day was extra special.

 

4. Seeing everyone dressed up to the nine’s. Everyone looked amazing! Seeing everyone’s different take on Dapper Day was such a treat.

Not only do the lovely folks over at Dapper Day plan an amazing day for everyone, but they also have events that bring everyone together and make a Dapper Day community. There’s the ride on the Mark Twain, and the “Dapper Derby” on the Carousel.

Feeling fancy on the Mark Twain :)

Wordy Wednesday: Catching Up

Hey there how’s it going? I’m back! How have you been?  I apologize for my long delay and a lack of an explanation. I started school and I was completely swamped with tests, and homework. But now I’m ready to jump back into the wonderful world of Disney!

First off, a huge congrats to The Walt Disney Company on their two Oscar wins this past Sunday! I think it’s great that two years in a row Disney was able to was able to win Academy Awards . Maybe next year they can make it three years running with a win for best animated feature for Disney/Pixar’s new film Inside Out?

Whoo Hoo!!

                       Future Oscar winner?

Future Oscar winner?

Also, who’s ready for the 60th Anniversary of Disneyland! I’m so excited for the Anniversary and all the magical things that are being planned! Personally, I’m looking forward to the World of Color- Celebrate! The Wonderful World of Disney. I remember being able to go to the parks during the 50th Anniversary and how magical the parks were. Are you planning on spending the 60th Anniversary down at the Parks? What are you most looking forward to?

Mickey and Minnie are all dolled up and ready to go

In other park news, I’m sure you’ve heard about the ticket increases coming to park tickets. Adult ticket prices now being $99 and children 3-9 tickets now being $93. This comes after last years raised ticket prices right before Memorial Day. What are your thoughts on the new prices? Do you think it’s crazy or understandable with the increase of the parks?

I hope you’ve been well and I’ve enjoyed catching up with you. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you real soon 🙂
