Endgame

It’s almost time.

I’ve finally finished my MCU marathon (in chronological order), to prepare myself for the end of an epic era. To be honest, I still don’t feel like I’m ready to say goodbye, but after revisiting everything, I have to applaud Marvel (and Disney obvs) for creating such an incredible and beautiful universe. And of course, I have to give a standing ovation for our dearest king, Stan Lee. Excelsior!

If I stop and think about the gravity of it all I actually end up crying, so instead of mourning I decided to celebrate the MCU in my own little way – Disney Style. For the past week, I have been Disneybounding the original Avengers – all from my own closet. No shopping. No borrowing even. I have to admit it was pretty challenging, but really fun.

If you don’t know what Disneybounding is, it’s when you dress like a certain character by incorporating colors/placement of colors instead of wearing the actual costume. This makes it easier to dress like a kid without non-believers ever finding out that you’re basically a Disney character traipsing around the real world. *wink*

Tokyo Disney Sea – what Disney travelers call the best park in the world. And for very good reason.

Having only seen photos of the world famous Disney Sea, I couldn’t quite decide which character I wanted to Disneybound. There were so many choices. So many magical lands.

Then I saw it. Mermaid Lagoon. The colors looked so vibrant and the theming looked absolutely incredible, I knew in an instant that Ariel was it. So Under the Sea we went.

Three Magical Days (Day 2)

When I made the itinerary for this trip, I took outfits into account because, well because that’s just who I am. I love dressing people up, and I love taking pictures of the clothes I’ve made and the outfits I’ve put together.

So if Day 1 was meant for rides, parades, and exploring every inch of the park, Day 2 was meant for Disneybounding, watching shows, and picture taking. And well, that’s exactly what we did.

 * If you’re just tuning in now, I’ll link Day 1 right here.

Three Magical Days (Day 1)

Back in January, as I turned the big 3-0, I decided to do something a little different for my birthday. Since my debut, I had always done two things: a family gathering, and a themed party for friends. I had been throwing themed parties for 12 years, and I knew that it was time for a change. That and the fact that I practically do these parties for a living made me decide to skip the party this year, stick to the traditional family gathering, and go on a trip with my two best girls instead.

And if you know me well – or hey, if you know me even just a little, you know I’d choose to celebrate in the Happiest Place on Earth.

And let me tell you, that was the Best. Decision. Ever.

What’s in my Disney Park Bag

Since I’m heading to Hong Kong Disneyland in about 10 days time, I figured I’d show you what I take with me inside the Disney Parks. This doesn’t really change regardless of which park I go to, as I pretty much have my Disney routine down pat.

On my last post, someone asked me what kind of bag is the most practical choice for Disneyland. For me, it’s a crossbody. I don’t really like taking backpacks because you need to swing it in front of you every time you need to get something, and I sweat more when I have something stuck to my back all day. With a crossbody, you can choose to make it hands free, when you’re tired you can switch shoulders, or carry it on the crook of your arm or in your hands. Now depending on what I’m going to do for that particular day, I bring different sized bags.

RIDE DAY

For a ride day, where my only goal for the day is to finish all the attractions on my list, I bring a bag like this:

Loungefly

I love this. It’s a pretty decent sized barrel bag, and it’s enough to carry all my essentials without getting a locker. It’s quite sturdy as well so I know that it can survive a good long day inside the parks. Plus it’s Mickey Mouse. Need I say more?

21 Disneyland Tips and Tricks

Going to Disneyland is a major production. Everyone knows this. You plan it for months, spend a lot of money, and sometimes you get there and you realize that you’re flying blind. You end up wasting time on long lines for rides, character meet and greets, and on food, when you should be skipping along to your favorite Disney tunes and having the BEST. DAY. EVER.

So on my recent trip to Disneyland, I decided I’d come up with a list of things you should know before going on your magical adventure. As someone who isn’t a local (I live in the Philippines), but who goes to Disneyland as often as she can, I do have a few things up my sleeve I’d like to share.

*Just note, that this is for Disneyland, not Disneyworld. As my last trip to Orlando was in 2014, I’m not confident that my tips will be up to date. Continue reading
