Tangled Inspired Cupcakes!

Tangled came out on dvd here in the UK last week :) None of my family had seen it so we all watched it on Saturday night :) They laughed ... they cried ... and they loved it :D
I made these cupcakes during the day to munch on while we watched it :)
After all, you can't have a movie night without munchies! :P

I found this gooorgeous pic of Rapunzels hair when it's in braids with pretty flowers in it :) and thought I could make cupcakes iced yellow with pretty flower designs on them!

And here's what I ended up with!

And here's how I made them! :)

Disney Blog Hop Thursday! Star Wars!

Welcome to this weeks Disney Blog Hop hosted by Babes in Disneyland, co-hosted by Days in the Park!
If you are new to the hop ... welcome! If you've been here before ... welcome back! :D
Please make sure you check out the rest of the Disney Blog Hoppers over at the
Babes in Disneyland blog or at Days in the Park! This weeks theme is Star Tours/Star Wars! 

I wish I could have been at the opening of Star Tours 2 last week, it looked amazing! I'm sure I'm not alone when I say some of the best coverage came from StarTours2live.com! I loved this post which showed some awesome Star Wars themed cocktails being served at the Press Event! :P 

And some of the best videos I've seen came from AttractionsMagazine.com! Please check out their YouTube Channel for a brilliant video of the Grand Opening Ceremony with George Lucas and Bob Iger! 
They also have some hilarious videos of Star Wars Character dance offs! Below is one of my favourites :)

I've been waiting to show off some of my boyfriends Disney/Star Wars stuff and this seems like a perfect opportunity! Sorry for the (bad!) quality of the photos, I really struggled with the lighting because these figures are still in their shiny packaging!

Mentoring Mondays! Sarah from Magical Days with the Mouse!

Welcome to the second edition of DisneyDonnaKay's Mentoring Mondays! A series of interviews with some of the best Disney bloggers out there! :) Donna Kay has been kind enough to have me co-host with her this week! Thank you Donna Kay!

This week features a wonderful blogger - Sarah from Magical Days with the Mouse! Please be sure to check out her blog! It's full of awesome photos and tips for trips to Disneyland :)

Here are the first two questions from Donna Kay's interview with Sarah. Head over to the Mentoring Mondays series for the rest of this wonderful interview!

Introduce yourself and describe your blog.
My name is Sarah Gillanders, and I run the website Magical Days with the Mouse.
I started Magical Days with the Mouse as a way to share the magic at Disneyland. As someone who frequents the park with her son throughout the week, there is always something I see that I feel others might enjoy looking at too. Sometimes it's just random photographs around the Disneyland Resort, but other times I will share a new show, a new treat to eat, or a place in the park we like to visit. Magical Days with the Mouse is a look at Disney magic.

What inspired you to start blogging?
 I've been blogging for several years, but about a year ago I found myself wanting to share photographs and information about Disneyland from my weekly trips. It was then that I started up Motherhood Magic. After a couple months, I realized my name was hurting me. I think the word "Motherhood" scared many away thinking it was a "mommy" blog, even though it was a Disney blog. I then changed the name to Magical Days with the Mouse, and people realized I was in fact a Disney blogger. It was the best move I made with my site.

Thank you for stopping by! Have a Magical Monday! :D

Disney Blog Hop Thursday! Disney Food!

Welcome to this weeks Disney Blog Hop hosted by Babes in Disneyland! If you are new to the hop ... welcome! If you've been here before ... it's awesome to see you again! :D Please make sure you check out the rest of the Disney Blog Hoppers at Babes in Disneyland!

So this weeks theme is FOOD! Could Lisa have picked a better theme? Probably not! :P

I'll start off with some of my favourite foods from Disneyland Paris! On my most recent trip last August, I hadn't started blogging yet ... so I don't have nearly as many photos of DLP food as I would have liked! There's so many foods I love that I don't have photos of! (Probably cause I nommed them all up before I remembered, or even had the chance to take a photo! lol!) But here goes!

First, here's a classic ... the mickey cookie!

These come in plain chocolate chip and rainbow chocolate chip from what I remember :) Always a brilliant snack! I think in this photo my boyfriend and I were having them for breakfast! :P
