Disney Cruise To Nowhere

This October I was able to take the second to last Disney Cruise to Nowhere.  The ship left out of San Diego on a Friday morning and returned Sunday morning without making any ports.  Apparently the laws have changed and Disney Cruise will not be able to do this itinerary any more.

Overall we had a fantastic trip.  It was very short, but perfect for the first time cruisers who wanted to see what it was like.  This was my second time on the Disney Wonder (check out my finding Snow White on the Wonder post here) but wanted to share a few of my favorite things from our trip and a couple of new Snow White pictures.

Disneyland Resort Snow White Merchandise

I was recently in Downtown Disney at Disneyland Resort and found that there was a surprising amount of Snow White merchandise available.  Here is a photo tour of what I found:

Up first, World of Disney Store:
I like this men's T-shirt featuring the Dwarfs from the Silly Song sequence

This shirt was cute...

But the back is truly the star - beautiful artwork

These purses and tote bags have been out for a while, but the really cool thing is the scarf on the right - it features an apple with the bite out of it shaped like Snow White's profile.

Nice artwork
Went to Sephora next to check out the princess compacts:

I had planed on buying one, but at a price point of $32, I passed.
At the confectionery:
Fun for trick or treat candy, except when it is full, you can't see the design.
At Vault 28:
 A fun design that you don't see on merchandise.
Here are some items from Wonderground Gallery:

Last stop to the pin trader by the Monorail station:

Annual passholder Dianmond pin featuring Snow White

Happy Almost Halloween!

It's hard to believe that the end of October is here!  If you are looking for some Snow White related ways to celebrate - be sure to check out the following:

* Carve a Snow White pumpkin with a template from Disney Family
* Download an Evil Queen wallpaper for your laptop, tablet, phone...from Disney Parks Blog (there are a few different ones including a new one for Disneyland's 60th)
* Put together a Villains party with lots of ideas from Disney Family
* Play a game of Dig for Apples
* Create some Evil Queen inspired Apple treats or cookies
* Make some paper projects: Evil Queen Mask, 3D queen, or Snow White's crown

An amazing thing happened last collection reached the 2,000 mark!  It can not believe that I now own 2,000 pieces of Snow White memorabilia.  A long time ago I started a spread sheet as a way to inventory the items I own and some time ago I started putting pictures of the collection in my Google photos.  I can't tell you how valuable that has been.  Keeping the inventory and the on-line photo gallery is great for insurance purposes, for checking "do I have that?" while at collectible shows, and for family members to check and see if that ebay Christmas gift they are bidding on is something I own or not.  If you want to check out my collection - see the collection page at the top of this blog.

Mickey Monthly Snack Box

Today's post has nothing to do with Snow White, but it is definitely Disney related!  I love getting mail, but so often it is just boring junk mail and lots of evil bills.  SO, I am thrilled to have received my first Mickey Monthly Box!  I have gotten on the subscription box wagon and signed up for a snack only box.  While I live in Southern California, I don't make it to Disneyland as much as I would like (and with passes on the rise, it looks like it will go back to a once a year trip for me).  Anyway, I saw this box and thought it was perfect for me!
Here is the description of the box I signed up for:
"Monthly snacks and treats from Disney World, automatically delivered directly to your door, every month.  We hand-pick each package from a large selections of WDW treats you can only get from your favorite vacation destination (until now)."

I lucked out and signed up in the month of September when they were running a special: a free Tsum Tsum and a Mickey rice crispy treat!  My package level includes two to three treats each here is what I got:
What a great box to open!  Those sour balls are one of my favorite of all time!  I miss the green only bag - but red is my second favorite color!

So I got four treats this month: Rock candy, Sour cherry balls, shortbread cookies, and, my favorite, the Donald Halloween bag with sour gummy pumpkins!  And check out the Ursula Tsum Tsum.

Overall, I am excited about receiving this box each month!  When I signed up, I wasn't sure if I would continue to the subscription.  But after opening my box and seeing all the goodies, I think I will keep the subscription for the time being.

Walgreens Villians Make-up

I was up in beautiful Big Bear this weekend when I saw this in the local Walgreens:

So cool!  I picked up some of the make-up remover wipes that had all three girls (Queen, Maleficent, and Ursula) on the bag.  They also had blush, lipstick, eye shadows and a beauty book that featured the Evil Queen.  There was also some hair accessories by Scruncci.  Being on vacation, I didn't think to snap any pictures of the other items.  I already visited my local Walgreens with no luck finding this Fall 2015 line.  I am on the hunt for an Evil Queen make-up bag and brushes. Apparently, these starting popping up in stores in late August.
