Twelve Days of Sockmas Advent Calendar

Disney’s Twelve Days Of Sockmas Advent Calendar: Let’s Open ‘Em Up

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! WE’ HAVE A 2319!!!!!!! Twelve of them, actually. Okay, so, one of the items I picked up at Cast Connection was a sort of sock advent calendar, which offered twelve pairs of socks behind little cardboard doors. I figured it’d be fun to open a door each day after I got home from my trip. Normally advent calendars have 24 doors for December 1 – 24, so I suppose you’d start this one on December 12? I guess nobody needs...

EVE Disneybound

In Which Jenn Assembles An EVE Disneybound

The full trip report is over, but the details still need filling in. Read on for more May 2021 WDW fun! Before our trip even started, I was being a total weirdo asked Becky if she would be interested in doing some light coordination of our daily park wardrobes. Rather than kicking my Disney Dandy butt to the curb, she sweetly agreed AND did me one better: did I want, she asked, to do a coordinating Disneybound? Full disclosure: I’ve never actually done a true Disneybound outfit. Shocker! Disney-adorned apparel, yes, always; some of my Disney dresses could even be argued as...

In Which Jenn Simply Must Dress Up For Walt Disney World

I haven’t built up to it as much as I usually do, but it’s true – I’m going to Walt Disney World in the beginning of May! It’s been a nail-biter, what with COVID and vaccines and race cancellations, but I can finally say I’m going home. And you know me, Disney Dandy that I am: I simply cannot go to WDW without blabbing to anyone and everyone about what I plan to wear. If the clothes themselves aren’t enough to grab your attention, perhaps my experimental attempt at a new photo format will interest you? Hit it! So here’s...

Sally race costume

The Nightmare Before Race Day

Remember last year when Pat bought me Spaceship Earth leggings just in time for my race costume? Well, he’s done it again! Okay, yes, I haven’t had a runDisney race in… oh, dang, well over a year. No wonder I’m so depressed. But I have to believe they’re going to come back, and when they do, I need to be ready and I need to have race costumes. Here’s another one: remember my Sally the Ragdoll race costume from WDW Marathon 2020? Because Pat did NOT. (Admittedly he wasn’t there.) But he knows that I love The Nightmare Before Christmas and...

Lion King

In Which Jenn Is More Than What She Has Become

I need to look inside myself, I guess. It’s one of the best parts of the whole Lion King movie, no? When Simba’s laying there looking up at the stars and Mufasa’s ghost shows up and yells at him. Okay, well, maybe not when I describe it like that, but you know the bit I mean. I’ve always found the moment strangely moving, although I’ve never been the king of anything. More just the call to be… I don’t know, true to yourself, I guess? I was trying to think of a less cheesy way to describe it, but...

In Which Jenn Will Be Part Of Your World

My inner Disney Dandy has been thinking about this tank top for a long time. I have this habit of hemming and hawing over purchases. I go to an online store, I fill my cart, I weed out the stuff I’m not as into until I have a good balance of interest to value, and then… often do nothing. I’m a chronic abandoner of carts. This is, probably, mostly, a good thing. Helps me save money. Keeps me from acquiring stuff I don’t need – or, more accurately, acquiring more stuff I don’t need. But occasionally I really regret a...

In Which Jenn’s Inner Disney Dandy Can’t Be Stopped

Normally around this time of year I would start packing for my Walt Disney World Marathon trip. What, already? Yeah! Just like last year, my holiday visiting would have allowed me to simply roll straight into Walt Disney World with no stop at home in between. I’d need to pack in advance (with, Florida being Florida, plenty of weather contingency options). Alas and alack, COVID continues to ruin everything. Marathon Weekend is cancelled, a fact that breaks my heart anew daily. Oh, and now my Rivals race is cancelled too. GREAT. But one way to cheer myself up a smidge is by...

In Which Mickey & Minnie Are On Jenn’s Jeans, K-I-S-S-I-N-G

Hey! Based on the numbers, it seems like you guys actually kinda like it when I ramble on about Disney parks and Disney fashion and wearing Disney fashion at Disney parks. So let’s all geek out over my latest acquisition together! I found these Mickey & Minnie kissing jeans at Hot Topic literally a year ago, and I think I asked for them for Christmas but didn’t get them. Which is obviously fine – it’d be pretty entitled to assume you’ll get everything you want for Christmas! Curiously, though, I didn’t just use holiday money to buy them myself during the...

Fantasia 2000 Flamingo

In Which Jenn Cheers Herself Up With A New Disney Dress

Ugh, fine. Here’s the post I was gonna write before I was so rudely sidetracked. Back in simpler(?) times, before the mass cancellation of runDisney race weekends, I elected to cheer myself up with a new dress from the Disney Dress Shop. Disney was offering 30% off all orders for Annual Passholders and it seemed the time to strike. So I indulged myself in the purchase of a super-cute yellow dress featuring the flamingo from Fantasia 2000. As has been previously documented, I absolutely adore Fantasia 2000, and the flamingo’s tale that goes with Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals finale...

In Which Jenn Shows Off More Disney Dresses

Normally I save my Disney Dandy posts for upcoming Disney trip wardrobe reveals, but I am disturbingly low on upcoming Disney trips. I definitely have some planned, but the first isn’t until January if I’m lucky and it feels a bajillion years away. How am I supposed to replenish my mental health from outside Orlando?! Anyway. As I was saying, it’s gonna be a minute before I can share a trip wardrobe post, so let’s just pretend, shall we? I’ve snapped up some sweet second-hand Disney finds in the last year or so and I want to show them off....
