Ah, Character Meals. Do you love ‘em or hate ‘em? We’re big fans of the experience, actually! They’re a great way to see lots of characters, and enjoy some pretty decent food without too much running around.

This weekend is the perfect time to get dressed up and head over to Disney Springs to celebrate Dapper Day! What’s Dapper Day you ask? According to the official Dapper Day website, the day “celebrates refined style from yesterday and today by organizing fashionable outings to Disney Parks twice a year.” (That’s Disneyland one day, and Disney World the second day.)

News: Two New Dining Packages Announced for ‘The Music of Pixar Live!’ at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Editor’s Note: As of last night, Disney has changed their information on their website. Now only The Music of Pixar Live dining package is showing, and there is no information available for the Pixar + Fantasmic package. We’ll keep you posted as this story develops.

I’m not sure what happened with the Pixar Live + Fantasmic package.

I asked AJ about it last night and she said to ask you (or Melissa) if one of you can update the post this morning. I’m headed out to Olivia’s performance soon and won’t be home to later this afternoon.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios has an all-new musical show debuting on May 26 – The Music of Pixar Live! The nightly show will be performed in the Theater of the Stars and celebrates 20 years of Pixar films with music, characters, and a movie montage. Today Disney announced two new Music of Pixar Live Dining Packages!

Spotted: More Fun Merchandise at Disney Springs Marketplace Co-op

Recently, I stopped by Disney Springs on a little gift-buying errand. While the item I was after was located at the World of Disney store, I popped in the Marketplace Co-op to see what was new (or, rather, new to me, since it had been some time since my last visit).

Immediately I knew it was a bad decision… for my wallet. Because this retail center (which is known as a test location for tons of Disney merch, with a lot of it eventually making its way into the parks) always has some seriously cool stuff tucked inside its individual shops. Take, for instance, the place we’re starting: Twenty Eight & Main. [Read more…]
