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...

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 Saw Those Yellow Minnie Ears Coming

Hey, guys, I’m psychic! That’s right – I asked the universe for yellow ears and BAM! Two weeks later, Disney serves ’em up. Clearly I am a person of taste with my finger on the pulse of fashion trends. Disney Dandy powers, arise! Anyway, there’s a new pair of ears I want. Initially I was disappointed by the lack of sequins, but I’m really coming around on the velvet. Hmmm. Let’s see if I can pull this off again, shall we? What’ll be the next color trends to emerge from the hit-and-miss minds of Disney merchandising execs? Let’s do a trifecta...

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....

Splash Mountain

In Which Jenn Luckily Already Has A Splash Mountain Souvenir

No doubt by now you’ve heard about how Splash Mountain in the Magic Kingdom had a 240 minute wait yesterday- for the gift shop. People were queuing up for a legit 2-hour wait to buy endangered ride merch. Sure, that’s kind of insane, but I do get the urge – Splash Mountain is a great ride, and as much as I’m down for the Princess & The Frog redo for a variety of reasons, I’ll miss it. It would be nice to have a memento. Alas, I’m not sure I’ll be back to WDW before it shuts down for the refurb,...

In Which Jenn Wants To Go To WDW… In Her Pajamas?

Like many of your parents too, I’m sure, my parents number among the worshipers at the altar of Costco. I’m not a member myself, but I must admit to enjoying the odd trip when I visit them; Costco has so much STUFF to poke around in! Some of that stuff, believe it or not, is Disney stuff, and when my mom offered to send me some Minnie Mouse pajamas, I wasn’t about to refuse. And they’re super cute- see above! They’re soft and pink and even have pockets! Why, they’re so cute they almost look like… a matching shorts set…...

In Which Jenn’s Disney Wardrobe Will Work Out Fine

I was all worked up about my Disney wardrobe for my upcoming trip – and it turns out the weather is going to be pretty Florida-y after all! Despite the extremely variable climate of Florida in January, it looks like it’s going to be in the high 70s and low 80s while I’m there (which could be interesting for my race costumes, but we’ll get to that tomorrow…). I have knee socks and extra layers, but I probably won’t need them. Instead: – I’m excited to debut my Oswald dress! (I didn’t wind up wearing at at Universal because it...

In Which Jenn Packs For WDW Three Weeks In Advance

Yes, I own this luggage for realsies. Look, I don’t know you. I don’t know your packing habits. But I can tell you my usual ones, which some might describe as anal-retentive: I have a spreadsheet. Everything I need to pack is in that spreadsheet, and once it’s in my suitcase, which happens at least a day in advance, I mark it off. I save every individual trip’s packing list so that I can go back and consult it to check for items I may have missed. And of course I check the weather to make sure my clothing...

In Which Jenn Puts Together A Universal Studios Wardrobe

So you know how I make you look at my planned outfits every time I go on a WDW trip because I’m a Disney dandy? An investigation has yielded that I can do it for a Universal Studios trip too. And so I shall! I know what you’re thinking: you own Universal-themed clothing? Well, as it turns out, I own juuuust enough for this trip. Behold! I know, I know, it’s cheating to double up on Jurassic Park. But, um, Jurassic Park is awesome, so. I mean, the original is. The Jurassic World movies so far have been the original plot...

In Which The Seven Dwarfs Wear Shoulder Pads Or Something?

I come to you today with another Disney Dandy discovery. Sort of. I might not wear this one. It is… different. My grandmother died a couple years ago – ah, memories – and my parents were finally able to sell her house early this year. This facilitated a major clean-out, as she was a collector. (Not a hoarder, mind you, a collector.) (But also possibly a hoarder.) Anyway, she had a lot of stuff. She mostly liked Judy Garland and The Wizard of Oz by extension, Shirley Temple, and dolls, but she had some Disney things too. Among the Disney items I...
