Spooky Season is in full swing and ICYMI I recently headed to Walt Disney World a few weeks ago to check out all the Halloween decor, snacks, merch + more! A key part of my trip was shooting some fun Halloween outfits with a touch of Disney magic and that’s exactly what I did! From fun tulle to Halloween tees to festive Minnie Ears + more, I loved the looks I put together and I thought you would too! Whether you are heading to WDW to experience Halloween at Disney for yourself or if you are simply staying home watching Hocus Pocus, here are some fun Disney Style Halloween looks you will love to wear!
TOMORROWLAND HALLOWEEN OUTFIT
I love this skirt because it has a bit of tulle and a fun trim…Paired with the right accessories it is a great skirt to wear year round (Halloween + beyond). This Mickey Mouse belt is from Buckledown products and has become one of my favorites as of late because you can wear it with so many different outfits!
I love this double-sided Shop Harvey’s Bag (sold out) because one side is Mickey and one side is Minnie. I also LOVE this orange lightweight skirt pair with this black denim jacket from REVOLVE. I love mixing fashion forward pieces with some Disney accents for a really trendy look!
It’s been a crazy month since I got back from the #DisneyCreators trip! I have begun planning my dream Disney Wedding, Disney has shut down due to Coronavirus + I have been going a little stir crazy at home practicing my best social distancing, so I figured now was as good a time as any to finally recap the entire #DisneyCreators trip!
First let’s start off with a brief overview of what this #DisneyCreators Trip was since I got a lot of questions about it on social media!
The #DisneyCreators Trip was a 8 day trip – 4 days at Walt Disney World + 4 days on the Disney Dream from Disney Cruiseline exclusively for influencers within the Disney creator network. The influencers on the trip were invited by the Disney team and what I thought was so cool is that they invited all different types of influencers who LOVE + post Disney! From mommy bloggers to travel Youtubers to Disney Style fashion influencers like me, it was awesome to meet all different types of creators + make new friends all with a common obsession – DISNEY!
Now that you are familiar with what the trip was let me break down some of my favorite moments of the trip!
First up – Recapping some of the best parts of the Disney World part of the trip based on day (figured that’s the easiest way to review!)♥
We checked in to the brand NEW Riviera Resort that was only 2 months old + beyond amazing! The resort has multiple pools, great dining + a beautiful view. I loved the French Riviera theme and one of my favorite parts of the resort is that they have their own line of merch from exclusive Minnie Ears to Hats to Luggage to Pandora Charms to Plushes, Pins + More! I stocked up on all their plushes which actually match the characters at the character dining experience they have for breakfast + dinner at Topolino’s Terrace! The food is beyond delicious + I love the character’s outfits of course.
After checking in + having breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace we relaxed for a little bit and then I headed to Epcot to kick of the #DisneyCreators Trip with a welcome dinner hosted by Her Universe founder Ashley Eckstein who also plays Ahsoka in multiple Star Wars animated features. The food was delicious, we got to network with other influencers and then explore Epcot a bit before meeting up again for a dessert party later that night! We got to enjoy yummy treats while watching the Epcot Forever Fireworks show!
We started the day by heading to the Contemporary Convention Center for a day filled with informative panels, fun giveaways, sponsorship showcase + more to educate all of us Disney influencers more about upcoming Disney developments, new launches + more!
We got to meet the actor behind the voice of Mickey Mouse, learn more about how TikTok is taking over social media + tons more, it was super helpful, informative and fun.
That night we then headed to Magic Kingdom for some ride time, sweet treats + my favorite fireworks show of all, the Happily Ever After show!
OK, so Day 3 was one of my favorite days at the parks! We kicked things off with an early morning trip to Pandora – The World of Avatar at Animal Kingdom. We got exclusive ride time before the park opened to ride Avatar Flight of Passage which was AMAZING (well worth the wait honestly, I know understand the hype) + Na’vi River Journey which was super fun. We rode the rides, snapped pics + enjoyed a yummy breakfast there in the park!
Later that day we headed to Hollywood Studios (one of my favorite parks at Disney World) + had a private party in Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge! We got to ride the new attraction Rise Of The Resistance which was beyond FUN + hands down the best ride I’ve ever been on and worth the boarding group process to get to ride it.
DAYS 4 + 5
Day 4 was a busy day! We checked out of the Riviera Resort + headed to the Disney Dream part of the Disney Cruise Line. We embarked on a 4 day 3 night cruise to Nassua Bahamas + Castaway Cay! It was my first time ever on a cruise so it was a whole new world for me. Unlimited EVERYTHING – I was in heaven from yummy food to dessert to all the pools + more…I couldn’t get enough of everything. I headed to the Senses Spa on board for a few treatments + relaxed in the Rainforest room that has sauna, jacuzzi + more. There’s tons of entertainment on the ship from adult only clubs to theater to movies…there’s a little something for everyone even kids with the kids club!
After boarding the ship we checked in to our stateroom + began to explore. The first night we had dinner at Animator’s Palate which was my favorite dining on the ship. They had tasty dishes + the interactive characters on screens around the dining area was super fun as well.
The next day we docked in Nassau, Bahamas where you were free to explore the island or go off on excursions to see what the island has to offer. I decided to stay on the ship to explore all the activities, dining, shopping + areas. Fun fact there’s no tax when shopping on the ship! PLUS there are tons of Disney Cruise Line exclusive merch only available on the ship like Minnie Ears, Pandora Charms, Luggage, Purses, Plushes + more…I definitely stocked up.
Day 6 was my favorite day on the cruise because we docked at Castaway Cay, Disney’s own private island! You had the whole day to explore the island which had bars, tons of BBQ, shopping + a family beach and Serenity Bay which was an adult only beach if you wanted a little quiet time.
I loved being able to meet characters too that were in fun island themed outfits + snap some great pics around the island. You can rent kayaks, beach bikes + more if you are on the sporty side! There were also a lot of activities to do as well + the cutest island exclusive merch!
The next day we headed back to shore + then flew home. It was honestly one of the best experiences I’ve ever had – I bought so much merch, ate so much yummy food + took way too many pictures hehe :p

Happy Sunday Funday ya’ll! I hope you all are up to some fun adventures!
Friday I had the opportunity to head to one of the happiest places on earth, Disneyland! From checking out some new rides, to enjoying some yummy dishes to viewing some amazing performances, Disneyland never disappoints + this summer, they have so many fun activities for you to check out + enjoy all season long!
If you are anything like me, you are a Disney lover + are always searching for the inside scoop on what to check out when you are at the park to maximize your trip, so today I am sharing some fun new happenings at both Disneyland + California Adventure specially for summer.
While everyone is talking about Galaxy’s Edge (and trust me it is AMAZING) I want to share just how much there is to do at Disneyland that the whole family will love! First up…a fun new theatrical performance at California Adventure, ‘Tale of the Lion King’ at the Palisades Stage!
The show is an all-new musical showcase inspired by everyone’s favorite Disney movie, The Lion King! Highly energetic performers depict an imaginative story that celebrates the spirit of Africa + the amazing movie highlighting our favorite characters Simba, Scar, Mufasa + more!
Next up?! California Adventure brought back a fan favorite ride, ‘Soarin’ Over California‘ in Grizzly Peak! From June 1st – June 30th, you can hop on this fun ride that brings you Soarin’ over iconic California landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, Malibu + more. Let me tell ya, this ride is a BLAST + being a Californian it is so fun to explore my surroundings in this fun, unique way.
I live for a yummy lunch break + one of our go-to spots is the Lamplight Lounge at Pixar Pier that has delicious new brunch dishes like avocado toast, french toast, potato flautas, yummy cocktails + more.
My personal favorite is their adult french toast, it is beyond scrumptious + is super filling for a long day at the park. Cocktail wise you can’t go wrong with their Cinnamon Toast Cocktail…it’s as if your favorite bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch was put into a bottle + it included a hint of vodka…SO GOOD!
I LOVE Toy Story + all things Pixar so that means you 100% need to play Midway Mania (a fun interactive shooting game at Pixar Pier that is a replica of Andy’s room from Toy Story), along with the Incredicoaster where you go on a wild rollercoaster ride to chase down JackJack (my fav)!
There’s also a new Toy Story themed ride at Pixar Pier for kiddos, Jessie’s Critter Carousel so you should definitely check that out if you have young ones!
I also love Cars Landso had to stop by to hang out with Mater + the gang because why not?!
Now off to Disneyland Park…where they refurbished the gorgeous Sleeping Beauty Castle making it as gorgeous as ever to have your magical photo moment!
The castle is just so iconic + it’s even more gorgeous at night during the newly returned, ‘Disneyland Forever‘ fireworks spectacular that takes place every night at 9:30pm.
I love Disneyland so much, I feel like there is magic behind every corner + because of Galaxy’s Edge opening, a lot of my old time favorite attractions have shorter lines or have been updated to pair with the Star Wars theme!
Anytime I head to Disneyland, I always go on the Haunted Mansion ride, It’s a Small World, Pirates of the Caribbean + Splash Mountain (you can’t go wrong with any of these)!
BUT one of my fav rides is over in Tomorrowland, Space Mountain which has been renamed Hyperspace Mountain + rethemed to highlight StarWars. You get to hurtle through Hyperspace while dodging furious dogfights during the high-speed adventure!
One of my favorite parts about heading to Disney is meeting all of my favorite characters like Winnie The Pooh, Tiger + more. What I love about Disney is that no matter what age you are, you can always be a kid + have a magical time at Disneyland.
Are you heading to Disneyland this summer?!
I am always happy to provide some fun tips + advice on where to go, what to see + what to do!
♥ All Our Dreams Come True If You Have The Courage To Pursue Them – Walt Disney ♥
Close your eyes + take a moment to image visiting the happiest day on earth during the most magical time of the year…now open your eyes because it is possible! From dreamy decor to yummy treats to festive events, gifts + more, Disneyland during the Holiday Season is nothing short of magnificent.
I had the opportunity to check out all the fun the park has in store for the Holiday Season + am sharing it all with you!
DECOR + EVENTS
One of my favorite things about Disneyland year round is all of the amazing decor, so it comes as no surprise that during the Holiday Season they go ALL out! From huge Christmas trees, to gorgeous lights, wreaths + more, you will feel like you are in a Winter Wonderland, so I am rounding up some of my favorite spots.
At Disneyland one of my favorite spots is Main Street USA where the entire street is strung with lights, wreaths + at the center sits the most gorgeous Christmas Tree making for the perfect photo backdrop.
During the day you can look up and see wreaths shaped like Mickey Mouse, the huge Christmas tree, festive plants, flowers + more.
At night the street is lit up + looks like something out of a story book.
Of course another one of my favorite decor moments at Disneyland is Sleeping Beauty’s Castle. It is covered in wreaths, icicles + is glistening making for a storybook finish.
Every evening there is an enchanted show at Sleeping Beauty’s Castle where the building has a projected light display AND they even make it snow in California (talk about magical :p).
At 9:30pm every night there is a Holiday fireworks show where you can hear your favorite holiday timed perfectly to sparks in the air!
If you are looking for a breathtaking lights display, head over to the ‘It’s A Small World‘ ride. The entire outside of the ride is decked out in a rainbow display of lights that is something out of a fantasy…I definitely want to be immersed in that fairytale.
Another one of my favorite decor spots in the park is Mickey’s Toon Town. Goofy’s House is decked out for Christmas along with Mickey + Minnie’s homes as well. The bright, bold colors make Mickey’s Toon Town my go-to spot for cute instagram pics.
ICYMI – Disneyland + California Adventure changed up some of their attractions for the Holiday Season making them a ‘must see‘ before it’s too late!
At Disneyland they switched up the traditional Haunted Mansion ride + let Jack Skeleton from Nightmare Before Christmas take over with his twist on the classic ride. The Haunted Mansion ride has always been my favorite + this festive version blew my mind. From neon displays to insane sculptures, you MUST check it out before it goes away January 9th!
It’s A Small World also got a festive upgrade during the holidays so definitely check that out to see all the new elements it has to offer.
Over at California Adventure, Cars Land is fully decked out for the holidays. Think Christmas trees made out of tires, traffic cones, hubcaps + more plus Mater’s Tow Ride got a holiday twist to make it even more fun for kiddos + adults alike.
TREATS + SHOPPING
Ok…obviously one of my favorite things to do at Disney is go shopping, especially during Holidays. The stores are stocked with festive gifts for you, your friends, family + more. We got some holiday themed Mickey + Minnie dolls, custom ornaments + stockings. Most gift shops at both parks have a customization station where you can purchase merchandise and they can go ahead + make it personalized to you.
One of my favorite things to get at Disney is new Minnie Ears each time I go + during the holiday season they have a ton of new styles to choose from like ones with faux fur, ones with snowflakes, big bows + more.
For treats, meals + desserts, each park has a variety of foods with a holiday twist. I love heading to the candy + bakery shops on Main Street USA for Mickey themed rice krispies (which were made festive with a santa hat), red + green cupcake pops, candy apples + more.
I don’t know about you but I am a HUGE popcorn buff + apparently during the holiday season Disneyland + California Adventure have exclusive holiday themed popcorn pals (I love collecting these). At Disneyland they have this adorable one of Pluto in a Christmas Sweater + at California Adventure they have one of the Alien from Toy Story with Christmas lights around him.
