Disney Store Black Friday Sale: Save Up to 50% Select items & Additional 20% Through Friday; Includes Some Sketchbook Ornaments, Plush, Frozen
The Disney Store online is offering Black Friday specials through tomorrow, November 27th! I expect many items to be gone by then, there are some really good deals (I picked a bunch up myself already). I price checked these items on Thursday morning, and they were available as of then. Use code THANKS for the final 20% off price! Any purchase you make through Mousesteps does help support us, thank you! The code SHIPMAGIC ships a $75.00 order for free. There were about 1000 items in the sale to begin with, this is just a very tiny sampling of that. There are clothes, I don't usually post those because they often are only in a few sizes and not the full range. What is seen here is only available as long as the items are available at the Disney Store.
The Chip 'n Dale Holiday Mug goes from $14.95 (retail) to $8.97 (after 20% off).
Disney Store online has a nice selection of merchandise from the upcoming film, The Good Dinosaur. This is the second film that Pixar has released this year, after the huge hit Inside Out. The items out so far include a Sketchbook Ornament, t-shirts for adults and kids, a mug and plush figures. This is just a small part of what you can find at the Disney Store! Any purchases made on Mousesteps help the site, thank you! The Good Dinosaur opens in theaters November 25th, 2015.
I originally posted this article in September, but The Good Dinosaur comes out this week!
One of the more popular items at the Disney Store is this Arlo with Spot Action Figure.
Disney's Contemporary Resort Gingerbread Display Expands to Include "Frozen Fever" Theme: Photos & Video
On the same day we visited Disney's Grand Floridian Gingerbread House for the grand opening, we headed over to Disney's Contemporary Resort to see what was new with the gingerbread display. Last year, Frozen took over, nestled inside of the background of it's a small world. Over the past 7 or 8 years, there have been several different themes, but this year expanded upon the Frozen concept by adding a Frozen Fever component. You can read our article from last year with information about how the Frozen theme came about. We always enjoy seeing the talent of the baking team here.
Disney's Grand Floridian Iconic Gingerbread House Opens for 17th Year; Mickey Mouse Helps Cut Ribbon
Disney's Grand Floridian Gingerbread House opened for a 17th season yesterday with a ribbon cutting ceremony featuring Mickey Mouse. Last year was the first year that a Disney character helped cut the ribbon, with Alice assisting Executive Pastry Chef Erich Herbitschek with the honors. We have been posting articles about the Grand Floridian Gingerbread House since 2008, and I think the house just keeps getting better. It is always fun to see which characters are chosen as artwork for the windows! Unfortunately, we missed the final dusting this year due to being in California - we had arrived back from Anaheim just hours before heading out for yesterday's ceremony. Disney's Grand Floridian Resort Gingerbread House is a constant through the years, not changing too much since it began 17 years ago. The gingerbread house will remain open through the end of the year.
We attended the first two Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party nights of 2015. The tips are similar to our 2014 article, but there are changes from year to year, so I always write a new list. And enjoy the lighting around the Magic Kingdom, I think it is better than ever. Here are our tips for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party 2015! All photos and video were taken by us over 2 nights, and we have 120 photos in another article from after the first Party.
Reindeer in Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade
We attended the first night of Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party and are sharing over 100 photos plus video. We also have an article with 14 tips to enjoy the Party! There are a few changes this year, and rain delayed the second parade and canceled at least one show. But overall the mood was festive and we enjoyed our first Party night of the year. Jeff and I have each been attending Mickey's Very Merry Party for 20+ years, and each year is a little different.
Magic Kingdom Christmas 2015 Kicks Off: Photos & Video From First Day, Including "Frozen Holiday Wish"; Christmas Castle & Tree
The holidays kicked off at the Magic Kingdom yesterday, just a few days after Halloween finished for the season. We arrived just after noon and have photos from throughout the day. The Christmas tree is already up for guests to enjoy, I think 2007 was the last year it was up in November (that year, it began in the Rose Garden and moved after parade taping to Town Square). Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party begins on November 8th, and we will post coverage on the 9th! We already have photos and videos up of the Osborne Lights for this year.
