Geir Ness to Launch Signature Disney "Frozen in a Bottle" Fragrance on March 1st, 2017

Hi everyone!

Frozen in a Bottle is the newest fragrance coming from Norwegian fragrance designer Geir Ness on March 1st, 2017. If you've ever walked through the Norway pavilion at Epcot (which you would if riding the former Maelstrom or the newer Frozen Ever After attraction), you have smelled fragrances by Geir Ness. I am a big fan of the Laila lotion, which I buy for gifts each year and has been a staple of the pavilion for just about 20 years with other products in the Laila line. Now, Geir Ness is bringing the spirit of Norway and the hit film to Frozen in a Bottle, which will be available online, in the parks, and on the Disney Cruise Line (Epcot will be the first park to carry it, the rest may follow mid-month). Read below for the press release! I hope they bring the fragrance to a lotion eventually as well.

Disneyland Paris Reveals Mickey & Minnie Mouse Costumes For 25th Anniversary

Hi everyone!

We are looking forward to the kickoff of the Disneyland Paris 25th Anniversary! I was there for the 10th in April 2002, and also was there during the 15th celebration in 2007. The anniversary celebration debuts on March 26th, 2017, April 12th is the official anniversary date. There is a lot of blue in the celebration, just as with the Disneyland Diamond Celebration. I added the original press release at the end of the photos, and one piece of concept art from Disney Stars on Parade, the new parade that is replacing Disney Magic on Parade.

Tips on What to See and Do During the Epcot International Festival of the Arts 2017

Hi everyone!

Friday was the first day of the first-ever Epcot International Festival of the Arts. I didn't really know what to expect when it was first announced, but it has similarities to the former Festival of the Masters that ran for 38 years at Downtown Disney (now Disney Springs). The Epcot festival celebrates art and offers food booths; classes (both free and paid); a Figment scavenger hunt; chalk art; Broadway concerts and more! Due to rain, we didn't see a few things Friday - including the concert - but I'll update this article after our visit on Monday and we will give a full overview on Mousesteps Weekly #214 this week. We experienced a lot of the festival, there is so much to see and do! The Epcot International Festival of the Arts is a weekend event, from Friday - Monday each week and lasts through February 20th, 2017.

Harmony Barber Shop Cast Member Michal is Retiring After 20 Years: Last Day is January 13th, 2017

Hi everyone!

We stopped by Harmony Barber Shop in the Magic Kingdom yesterday so Jeff could get his hair cut by Michal, and found out that Michal's last day before retiring will be Friday, January 13th, 2017. Not only is it Michal's last day, but it is his only day of work left. Michal has been at the Harmony Barber Shop for 20 years now, and it's always been a pleasure to see him when he's working and to get my hair cut with him on occasion as well. Here are a few photos from yesterday, Michal will be missed at the Magic Kingdom by so many guests!
