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...

This weeks' topic on Focused on the Magic is Last Resorts!
Where did we stay last? Pop Century! We love Pop so much, we really don't want to stay anywhere else! It's our home away from home!! The kids love the pools, I love the Everything Pop and the bridge leading to Art of Animation and Mr. Disney Magic loves the hot fudge brownie sundaes in the food court, and the bus system that lets him take a well deserved rest from driving! Soon, I'll bet we will love the gondolas, as long as they don't interrupt the view of the fireworks over Hourglass Lake! Use the button below to visit more Last Resorts!
It's Wednesday again, and that means another great set of photos with the Focused on the Magic Blog hop! Click the button on the bottom to see more.
I might be a weirdo, but I LOVE the Disney Junior show at Hollywood Studios. Our first trip we saw it once, our second trip, twice. This last trip, the shows were all canceled our first day for technical difficulties (I'm guessing the book wouldn't turn? I mean...the cast is puppets) but on our last day, my youngest and I got to see it. The oldest was a little sad, so hoping next time we can all see it.
Makes me a little sad that it might only be another time or two that we get to see it again, today my youngest is 5! Who knows how many more times he will sit through it, but I tell you...doesn't matter how old I am, I'm always going to want to see it! (As long as I have a kid with me, because I don't want people thinking I'm weird!)
I love the songs, (Yes, I do have the Jake and the Neverland Pirates and Doc McStuffins soundtracks and darn tootin I know the words!) and I LOVE LOVE LOVE when they drop the bubbles, the gold doubloons and the streamers from the sky!! It's sooo fun!! We have a little pile of them as souvenirs. It's so awesome now that the meet and greet for the Disney Junior gang is right nearby. My youngest fell in love with Sofia on this last trip, and he was too shy to meet her, but he did go to Jake, Doc and Pluto.
