Focused on the Magic had a great topic this week! Disney Tee's! I Always, ALWAYS make sure to have a themed tee for whatever park I'm visiting, my kids too! Animal Kingdom is usually Lion King, Hollywood Studios Star Wars or Marvel. Epcot I wasn't too sure what to do, so I went with this french stripy thing, and Magic Kingdom? That's Alice, or Pooh, or Minnie and Mickey! You can NEVER go wrong with Mickey and Minnie!
Over the summer I discovered some cheap cheap Disney tees on facebook groups, and bought myself a few. One, was a 15th anniversary Animal Kingdom one, brand new with the tags for $10. It's my new favorite and I can't wait to wear it next time we go there. Another was a fabulous Cinderella print, but it arrived the size of a house and waaay too big. I am NOT joking. After much reflecting I think it was a night shirt, not a regular shirt. After many tears, and much disappointment I got onto Pinterest and saw all the no sew ways (since I can't sew worth beans) and found a way to cut the excess, and knot it up, kind of like those no sew fleece blankets, but the fringe is on the inside. All summer and now fall, it's sat, looking at me accusingly from a pile of laundry on the floor, ready for my to tackle the DIY, but I'm a little nervous. I'll get to it one of these days though! I love the possibility of the shirt, just scared to do the actual attempt!

This week Focused on the Magic is all about favorite sidekicks. I am a HUGE Darkwing Duck fan. I've loved him since he came out. I also really like his sidekick, Launchpad McQuack. Launchpad was actually around before DW was, he worked for Scrooge McDuck in Ducktales (Also another favorite show!) and later became the Terror That Flaps in the Night's sidekick. He's a great guy!

Movie Magic is a great theme for this week at Focused on the Magic. If there was ever a Disney movie I've not liked, or felt the magic in, I've not met it yet. New movies or old, Disney does such a great job of finding the magic, and for that, I picked Oswald the Lucky Rabbit as my representation of Disney Movie Magic.
Though Oswald doesn't have a full length movie of his own, he has several shorts and has cameos in several popular series. If you've got a fan of Minnie's Bowtique, look for him in the slumber party episode! Oswald has a really interesting history.
While it all started with a mouse, I think really, ust a little while before, it all started with a rabbit.

I love this week's topic at Focused on the Magic. Castles! Think you need to be right in front of the castle to get the perfect shot? Nope! Play the angles! Shoot from the side, the back, or up above! The Peoplemover would have given a superb shot of Cinderella's castle for me on our last trip, but Mr. Disney Magic's head was in the way! *sniffle* Next time!! And I'll know better where to sit! I love this shot, taken on the bridge. No one was in the way, I could stop and not be jostled, and it's different, than the usual taken in the front shot.

This week's Focused on the Magic shot is a September calendar Shot. I've never been to Disney in September because of school aged kids and hurricanes, but I do think this shot is a good autumn shot... it makes me think of fall, and honestly.. I just love Pooh.
If you are standing a few steps back from the base of his house, look up and to the right, just above the sign. There you'll find the beehive. I can almost hear the bees now, and see Pooh looking for his red balloon to blow up so he can get a small smackerel of honey...
