Toontown!





     
     Just a few more larger than life snap shots from my visit to Toontown. As a child who fell in love with "Who Framed Rodger Rabbit," I can still remember the first time I ever visited Toontown when it was brand new and freshly built! Seeing the homes of all my favorite cartoons helped make their characters feel more real and alive than I already had imagined them to be! You have to know I still swoon when I happen to see Rodger Rabbit while in Disneyland! 









Still one of my all time favorite rides at Disneyland! A huge part of why I love Rodger Rabbit is because he is so hilariously funny and all the cartoons are obsessed with his humor and not necessary the fact that he is also a funny looking rabbit! 


Sadly, "It's A Small World" was closed during my visit to
the Magic Kingdom but I am excited to see the improvements
 on my next visit!






     Thank you for following along on this virtual Disney vacation with me! I promise more color and fun is on it's way!

Yours,
Nico

Tea Time With Nikki Mouse !





     Visiting Toontown during the holiday season last year was truly animated! With larger than life neon colors, ornaments, and holiday trees it was difficult not to feel like you were in caricature! Of course I planned my outfit that day so that I could feel like a cartoon character come to life. My polka dot dress was purchased at Retro Paradise in Santa Cruz and not only fit the occasion but is also extremely well cut & made. Galavanting around the theme park with one of my best friends was also easy while wearing a pair of yellow converse and the outfit was topped off with a pair of classic minnie mouse ears! I was really hoping that I would run into Rodger Rabbit or Goofy while I was there because I had HUGE crushes on them as a kid, maybe on my next visit!

A New Year In Tomorrowland:


     As we look towards the future with a brand new year upon us, I wanted to share a few snaps from my trip to Tomorrowland in Disneyland, California! A universe filled with space travel and creative inventions sits tucked away in Anaheim waiting to be explored:

Disneyland, The Most Magical Place On Earth !


     
     This past November (the day after Halloween actually) I flew down to Southern California to soak up the last bits of warm weather with one of my favorite childhood friends. We were lucky enough to enjoy our stay at one of the Disneyland Resorts and experienced as much of the magic at the Disney theme parks as we could in two short days! I promise to share more of this whimsical trip in the coming days, including a Minnie themed tea time, an adventure thru Frontierland, and shopping in Downtown Disney








     My friend and I were also thrilled to enjoy the theme park at the perfect time of year! I prefer to visit the Magic Kingdom between Halloween and Christmas because of the vivid decorations that encompass both holidays during this season. The idea also inspired me to decorate for "The Nightmare Before Christmas" this Winter. Skulls, pumpkins, and Christmas trees from October to December in my home for 2015!

Yours,
Nico
