Disney Princess Magazine

I was wandering around in a book store the other day and I saw this:
May/June 2016 Disney Princess Magazine

I was surprised to find the main story on the first few pages all about Snow White!  "A Windy Adventure" is a story about Snow White heading out to collect supplies to make a surprise for the dwarfs when the wind interferes with her plans.  The story runs from page 3 to page 8.  This particular issue also features a story about Sleeping Beauty.

The magazine also features lots of games and crafts with lots of Disney princesses as well as a pull-out poster.  The magazine is published six times a year and is suggested for readers 3 to 9 years old.

 I recently came across a Snow White cottage for sale in Washington sate.  This is a four bedroom and four and a half bath home and was designed with the Seven Dwarf's cottage in mind.

The Disneyana Club (formally the NFFC) will be holding it's annual convention this week and I saw that they have a Snow White item as one of the raffle prizes.  It is a limited edition Costa Alavezos sculpture featuring Dopey, Grumpy, Happy, and Sleepy riding Splash Mountain!  Does anyone know anything else about this piece?

Hallmark Items

It was my birthday last month and my dad found me the perfect card!




I went to Hallmark to find another, but I didn't find the card in my Hallmark. I did find these mugs though.




I really like the Disney Line that Hallmark has.  I hope to see more Snow White and Dwarfs!

Jamberry Snow White Nail Wraps

I recently saw that there are these great nail wraps (stickers) that feature Disney characters from Jamberry.  I tried some non-Disney wraps and I was quite impressed.  I can't wait to get some Snow White wraps to wear at the next Disney function!  Be sure to check out these designs.

Disney Movie Rewards Exclusive Poster and Studio Tour

Disney Movie Rewards allows you to earn points when you purchase movies, some music, and when you see movies in theaters.  (They recently changed the rules so only CDs bought on the Disney Music Emporium site are eligible for points.)  Generally you earn 50 points when you see a movie in the theater, 100 for a DVD, and 150 for a Blu-ray.  With these points, you can redeem items.  On occasion, there are exclusive items available.  The first one I ever saw was back in 2009.  It was a Snow White and Seven Dwarfs ornament for 975 points.  Then in 2011 there was a keepsake box for 975 points and in 2012 a Snow White Apron was offered for 1,000 points.  In 2014, there was a Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Pin for 900 points.  As far as I know, these have been the only Snow White exclusive items offered...until now.  There is currently an exclusive poster with art by Eric Tan available for 1250 points.

You may have noticed down at the bottom of my screen shot that I have 14,160 points.  Back in 2009 I wondered if I should keep saving points for the studio tour or if I should redeem for Snow White items.  I've decided to do both.  I will redeem points for one of these posters and very soon, I will be able to get the tour.  In 2009, the tour was 20,000 points.  It seems that the points were lowered to 15,000 points at some point, but I don't remember when.  If I had never redeemed any points, I would be at 17,885.

However, I recently noticed the the rewards website started offering 3 different tour levels with new point levels: Silver, Gold, and Platinum.  I did a comparison of the levels to help me decided which one I want to go for.

So now, I have to decide if I want to keep saving up for the Platinum or Gold tour, or if I should use my points on the Silver tour.  If I'm going for Gold I only need 92 trips to the theater, 46 more DVDs, or 31 Blu-Rays.  Platinum will take 242 trips to the theater, 121 DVD, or 81 Blu-Rays.

What are your thoughts?  What would you do?
