Run Amuck with Photos from the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular at Magic Kingdom Park

From the Disney Parks Blog and written by: Jacob Talarman If you’re like me, the candy I collect during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party disappears quickly once I get home from Magic Kingdom Park. This is one reason why I love the photos taken by Disney PhotoPass photographers during the event – they’re a perfect, lasting souvenir! In addition to the party-exclusive Magic Shots and Animated Magic Shot Continue Reading

While in the parks, do you ever make time to stop and enjoy the little things that bring out the magic? At the end of a long day of running from ride to ride, sometimes it’s just nice to stop and take in the beauty of the park. Nothing enhances the park more than the Florida sunset. Sunsets are one of my top 5 things to photograph, and I find myself chasing them all the time in the parks, especially during th Continue Reading

The Hatbox Ghost Revisited

A few years ago, Michele put out this story in regards to the Hatbox Ghost.  To this day, that article is one of the most read that we have ever had on TMSM.  In going with the Halloween theme for October we wanted to share it again.  Enjoy!!   Obviously, I’m a Disney Fanatic. I have been since I was 5 years old. Until recently, I was more of a pop culture kind of girl. I knew a lot of useless trivia, an Continue Reading

TMSM’s Adventures in Florida Living ~ Disney+Family=Happiness!

Happy Wednesday Everyone! It’s time for our weekly chat session, so lets get right to it! Last week was a blur. We worked from home every day and really didn’t get much of a break. That’s how it goes sometimes, and I know that’s expected when you run your own business, but on occasion I wish I had office hours. Now, that doesn’t mean I miss working in an office, as I certainly do not Continue Reading

Is Disney in Your Soul? #DisneyLife

Posting again for those who missed it! Enjoy! ~M For as long as I can remember, I’ve been a Disney girl.  I honestly don’t recall a time when I didn’t have an affection for all things Disney. When I was little, my mom took me to see Disney movies.  When I was 6 I went to Walt Disney World for the first time, those are my earliest memories.  Is that what triggered my so called Disney life? I cer Continue Reading

Hidden Jack Skellington?

Welcome Foolish Mortals, to the Haunted Mansion! We all know and love those famous words and can probably recite the transcript for the entire ride. I know my family can! In my deepest ‘spooky voice’ I attempt to do my best Paul Frees impression, not as successfully as I would like but that’s beside the point. While on a visit to Magic Kingdom a few summers ago, we got caught in a pretty lengthy rain storm. Continue Reading

A Look at the Walt Disney: Marceline to Magic Kingdom Tour

The bronze Partner’s statue of Walt Disney holding Mickey’s hand right smack in the middle of the hub grass is a well known Disney landmark at the Magic Kingdom. Walt’s image stands stoic with his open hand extended in the air as if conjuring some kind of magic down Main Street giving the impression that this visionary’s work is just beginning. You can almost hear him whisper “Picture this Mickey Continue Reading

My Favorite Disney Memory – What is yours?

Who remembers the morning show that used to take place every morning to open Magic Kingdom? It was my absolute favorite! The Mayor of Main Street, USA would come out and welcome everyone, the dancers/singers would perform, the train would roll in with the characters, and that one family would walk out to join in the countdown. How lucky were those people that got picked? Speaking from experience, super lucky! I had Continue Reading
