We are off to Aulani today and I can’t wait!!! I’ve never been to Disney’s Aulani Resort let alone Hawaii so I am beyond excited to see what the most tropical paradise is all about. While I put together a guide of what I am packing for Hawaii to wear, I had to of course put together specifically a guide for just Disney merch perfect for Aulani! Naturally Aulani has a ton of exclusive merch at the resort but they also have some on ShopDisney.com, PLUS I have been stocking up on plenty of Lilo & Stitch goodies since they are from Hawaii! Can’t wait to share more about Aulani once I return!
Ya’ll I am so excited to be heading to Hawaii this weekend for the first time ever! We both have never been to Hawaii and this will be such a different type of vacation for us because typically we just head to the theme parks at Disney World each year for our anniversary + my birthday but this year my boo wanted to do something different and actually relax on vacation so Hawaii here we come!
We are heading to Disney’s Aulani Resort + I can’t wait to visit somewhere new, soak up some sun + embrace a little R+R with my boo so I wanted to share what I’ll be packing along on my trip ♥
Ya’ll I am so excited to be heading to Hawaii this weekend! We are heading to Disney Aulani for my birthday and our anniversary so I am in a full on Palm Print state of mind + in the archives I found this outfit I shot over the summer at this palm print wall in Venice!
The color green is growing on me – especially when I am in a tropical state of mind with Hawaii on the horizon! This dress is so chic to wear on vacation or honestly anytime! I paired it with palm print heels + a palm print clutch to really show my tropical side.
You can never go wrong with a little palm print and a clutch is a great way to incorporate it into your look without feeling intimidated by the busy print!
How fun are these heels? I honestly can’t remember when or where I got these fun heels but I am packing them for Hawaii for a nice dinner date night or night of dancing on the beach! I’ve linked to some similar styles below that are just as gorgeous and affordable.
With the holiday season just around the corner that means getting ready to do some traveling. Whether it is heading on some exotic vacations to warmer climates to traveling to visit family for Thanksgiving, the key to traveling? Having the right essentials!
Halloween is one of my favorite times of year, especially at Disneyland! As you may know by now, I am always up for a magical day at Disney (heading back again tomorrow) and one of the best times to experience Disney is during the fall season and especially October to experience all of the fun Halloween themed activities they have in store.
From limited edition merchandise to tasty treats to the spooky decorated streets of Main Street USA, Halloween is in full force at the most magical place on earth.
One of my favorite Disney buys for the spooky season has been this Mickey Mouse Pumpkin Backpack – it is a great size to wear to the park and I LOVE how on theme it is for the rest of the Disneyland park.
2. Spooky Decor, Updates + Shows
Disneyland goes all out for Halloween – like literally ALL OUT! There is so much to experience and see at Disneyland during the month of October, but here are a few decor, ride + show highlights to check out:
The Haunted Mansion Ride – Ya’ll I am so excited about this update for the spooky season because The Haunted Mansion Ride got a little Nightmare Before Christmas makeover for the spooky season. The entire ride has been taken over by Jack Skeleton + you will not want to miss this beautifully executed Haunted Mansion remake and luckily you have time! This redesign will be live from now till January 6th, 2020.
Main Street Pumpkin Festival – The first image in this post is from the absolutely amazing Pumpkin Festival on Main Street in Disneyland! Main Street is covered with pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns, fall decor + more giving you all the fall feels for a fun day ahead. I love the intricate details of the carved gourds + even Downtown Disney has some awesome themed pumpkin statues + decor throughout the area.
Spooky Shows – Both California Adventure + Disneyland have a few spooky nighttime shows that the whole family will enjoy. One of my favorite shows is at Disneyland park – Halloween Screams. It is a 10 minute show filled with fireworks, spooky projections + clips of your favorite Disney villains and songs from the movies (because hey why not embrace you evil side around Halloween time right? :p) At California Adventure you can experience the Oogie Boogie Bash which is a ticketed event but it’s well worth the price tag with an appearance from grave diggers, the headless horseman + so much more.
Haunted Happenings at California Adventure – Throughout California Adventure park you can experience Halloween takeover in Cars Land, the Guardians of the Galaxy ride + so much more! I love the spooky touches throughout the park because let’s be real…they are IG approved hehe :p
3. Tasty Treats
Halloween Popcorn Buckets + Reusable Cups – OK this is one of my MUST buys every time I head to the park, a souvenir popcorn bucket so naturally I HAD to get the new ones they have at the park this Halloween season. They have a few options from a Purple Cauldron to a Mickey Pumpkin – you’ll want to snag one before you leave the park…I love collecting them and displaying them around my place as fond memories of a magical day. I am also obsessed with this Poison Apple Mug available at both parks that can be refilled at various spots throughout your park stay.
Delightfully Spooky Desserts – From Coco Churros to Oogie’s Worm & Dirt Funnel Cake to a Mummy Donut, both California Adventure + Disneyland park will have your taste buds watering with these yummy treats throughout the end of the month!
