And We’re Back (In More Ways Than One): My WDW Marathon Weekend Wardrobe

Hello and welcome to 2022! I’m sure it some ways it feels much like 2021 so far; that is to say, like a sequel we never asked for to a movie we did not like. Still, already 2022 has one thing going for it, and that’s the return of the WDW Marathon, my dearest love. Obviously I can’t embark upon a Disney trip without forcing you all to LOOK at my PLANNED WARDROBE, so here we are. Does it help that I am once again trying a new format? Yes? Okay, what if I said the new format involves...

What I’m Wearing To Disney THIS Time

My next Walt Disney World trip is right around the corner, which means the Wine & Dine Half Marathon is almost upon us! It’ll be my first runDisney race since I did the Goofy Challenge in January 2020, and I am READY. I don’t know how this trip is gonna look with all the changes lately, but I do know how I’m gonna look, and that’s cute. ;D Once a Disney Dandy, always a Disney Dandy, y’know? There’s a twist this time around, though: Pat wants us to do carry-on luggage only. This is wise as Disney’s Magical Express,...

Dressing for Star Wars – Galaxy’s Edge: My Batuu-bound Outfit

A Star Wars outfit from me?! An avowed Trekkie?!?! Look, here’s the thing: when it comes to immersive theme, I am highly suggestible. For example, I am probably the only millennial alive today who thinks Harry Potter is, like, fine or whatever. Yes, I read all the books, and I can still take him or leave him. Yet I can get HYPE for The Wizarding World of Harry Potter because it’s so freaking good at creating an exciting atmosphere. I left Universal that first time with a Ravenclaw scarf. Why? Fast forward a decade or so and ya girl...

Pongo 101 Dalmatians

101 Dalmatians, One Dalmatian Disneybound

After dipping my toes into my first proper Disneybound a few months ago, I’m back with an all-new 101 Dalmatians-inspired outfit! Guys, 101 Dalmatians was my JAM when I was a little kid. It came out over two decades before I was born, but I didn’t care. Ariel and Belle were great and all, but they couldn’t compete with 101 DOGS. In the immortal words of Karen Cushman: I myself like dogs better. I still remember the thrill when my uncle gave me a Dalmatians-themed sleeping bag for my birthday one year, plus I had the Pongo and Perdita...

A Dress Shop Triumph For The Oogie Boogie Man

Well, well, well. What have we here? The last post about my May WDW trip? Oooh, I’m really scared! (And yes, you may as well strap in for a bunch of Oogie Boogie song quotes now.) CAST CONNECTION: I CAN’T BELIEVE MY EYES! I touched on this in my trip report, but during my last Disney trip I had the honor and privilege of checking out Cast Connection. For those unfamiliar who are also not prepared to slog through one of my famously wordy trip report posts, Cast Connection is essentially a Cast Member-exclusive Disney outlet. Members of the...

Splash Mountain

A New/Old Splash Mountain Souvenir

Splash Mountain has been in the (Disney) news this week, since more was revealed about the planned Princess & The Frog retheme. I’ve gone on record as being in favor and I stand by what I said… but I also stand by what I said, which I that I’ll miss Splash Mountain when it’s gone. I’ve posted about old Splash Mountain shirt before, when there was a run on Splash Mountain’s gift shop. You remember? Opportunistic types were buying up enormous bags of Splash souvenirs to be sold online in a nostalgic frenzy. I can’t abide enormous eBay markups,...

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...

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...
