New Disney Mugs Coming to Disney Parks!

Disney Mugs 2014
Wow. Wow. Wow.

These are so cute!

This morning, Disney Parks Blog announced a new set of character inspired mugs, reminiscent of the ear hat ornaments and most recently, shoe ornaments Disney has been releasing.

The princess mugs include Cinderella, Belle, Ariel, Jasmine, Rapunzel, Aurora and Snow White.

Villan mugs include Ursula and the Queen of Hearts. New Evil Queen and Malificent mugs have also been released, but are not sculptured in the same vein as these mugs. The body of the mug is more like a regular mug. But still stunning, nonetheless!

The mugs will be released to select merchandise stores at Disneyland and Disney World very soon. They will also be available for purchase at Disney Store online sometime in May.

My personal favorite is the Rapunzel mug. Any favorites for you?

Little Mermaid Released Today!

Little Mermaid Blu Ray

In addition to today marking the 42nd anniversary of Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, one of my favorite princess movies, The Little Mermaid, was released on Blu Ray and DVD!

Found everywhere in stores and on-line, you can buy the Blu Ray/DVD Combo; the Diamond Edition Blu Ray/DVD/Digital Combo; or the 3D Diamond Edition Blu Ray/3D Blu Ray/DVD/Digital + Music Combo.

The family took a trek out to our local electronics store this evening and purchased a copy of the 3D Diamond Edition Combo pack, because I figured for the extra few dollars I would get the Music Download, which includes 10 music tracks, as well as the 3D Blu Ray copy which I am hearing very good things about.

If that isn’t exciting enough, coming on November 19 you can purchase Little Mermaid II and Ariel’s Beginning in a 2 Movie Blu Ray/DVD Combo Pack. All in time for Christmas!

Now the bigger question is, can I keep it hidden and sealed until Christmas……. 😉

The new character greeting for Disney Princesses officially opened in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom this morning!

Guests can either choose to meet Cinderella and a visiting princess OR Rapunzel and a visiting princess. To Fastpass this attraction, go to the Fastpast Distribution Centre right next to Peter Pan’s Flight.

According to Disney Parks Blog, the story behind the Fairytale Hall is that it was a gift from the King to Cinderella where she and her princess friends could gather together and greet their royal subjects.

So Cindy and the gals are friends?

Seems so! This story reminds me of dining at Cinderella’s Castle last year. During our greeting with Jasmine, she asked my ‘very shy’ daughter if she wanted to come to a sleepover at the Castle that night with her, Cinderella, Belle, Ariel and the other princesses. Jasmine said they would watch movies, do their nails and she would bring the popcorn! My daughter was speechless and in awe. The only thing she could do was nod her head emphatically with a big smile on her face! It was so cute and sweet and just proves that the princesses are IN FACT, friends! 😉
