today is my favorite day of the entire year, halloween! i care more about halloween than i do about my own birthday. luckily, here in disney world we've been celebrating halloween since september! i went to three halloween parties at magic kingdom; once with just my friends, once with my dad and friends, and once with my mom. of course, i had to dress differently for every party.

"""casual""" merida:

peter pan:


and my fave (also the easiest because it's my life!), the queen of halloween:

other halloween things i have been up to:

-i saw paranorman with my friend amanda way back in september. it was a beautiful movie, and it was unexpectedly deep and made me tear up in public.

-i met jack and sally at downtown disney! they never meet in disney world, only disneyland, so it was a big deal.

familial traits

-i saw hotel transylvania with my dad, which looked horrible and ended up being mega enjoyable. no paranorman, for sure, but funny and cute and it ended with a musical number. it was a good papa/daughter movie.

-and most importantly, i ate bags upon bags of these babies

and now i gotta go rest up, because tomorrow (today) i've got to get my spook on. miraculously, i wasn't scheduled to work. cosmic sign??? probably. ask madame leota.

"limited time magic"

today (or yesterday???) Disney rolled out their new promotion for 2013. "limited time magic" is the name they've given to what will be a large collection of short-lived events. the parks blog has released a little info on a few of the weekly themes, and they've got me really jazzed. some of my faves:

true love week: occurring during valentine's week, and will include romantic castle lighting (the magic, the memories, and you, anyone?) and """special""" meet and greets with the couples of the kingdom.

long lost friends week: disney fans will be able to vote online to choose which characters get to come out of retirement for this short engagement. the parks blog only mentioned a few, but amongst them were remy and flik, two cuties i love.

i feel like tumblr will be all over this.

and last but certainly not least, "unleash the villains": this event will only be held for one day, september 13th, which is a friday. both disneyland and disney world will be holding the event (hollywood studios for us east-coasters) and staying open until one am, the thirteenth hour. several villains will host a dance party, and there will be limited edition merch available. as we all know, i am obsessed with disney villains, so this is one i can't miss.

there are a few others announced but apparently there are many more coming. comments i've read have been very mixed, but i'm personally very excited to see what's in store!
