It’s a beautiful, if a bit warm, afternoon here at Disneyland park – a great day to find a shady spot and enjoy the sights and sounds all around you. I like the little spot next to the Mad Tea Party, where this guy is hanging out. It’s cool, a little tucked away, and the perfect vantage point for all the action that happens in this corner of Fantasyland.
What is your favorite spot to relax and cool off at the Disneyland Resort? Let me know in the comments.
How many of you are like me – running, leading a healthy, active lifestyle, but falling short when it comes to diet and nutrition? It’s no secret proper nutrition is the key to fueling your exercise and helping your body recover and prevent injury.

Recently, we were excited to welcome Tara Gidus as the official nutritionist for runDisney. Her tips are helping runners fuel their training programs and races, and they will help you achieve your goal of a healthy lifestyle.
Tara recently teamed up with Disney Chef Gary Jones to prepare a couple healthy dishes that are easy to make and delicious to eat. The first of three recipes and nutrition tips start today on runDisney.com.

June has always been a big wedding month. I remember attending more than my fair share of June weddings growing up. The weather is pretty, the sun is shining and there are vacations aplenty. In anticipation for a summer chock-full of wedding events, I’m sharing this fun-loving video of a couple who had a very special Bridal Portrait Session at Magic Kingdom Park. It doesn’t get more romantic than that!
Hundreds of rubber ducks raced around the world for a cause at the 5th annual “it’s a small world” duck race! Cast members sponsored and decorated the ducks to raise more than $1,800 for Make-A-Wish Orange County and the Inland Empire before Disneyland park opened for the day.
Last November, you may recall seeing a sneak preview of new Disney character-inspired shoe ornaments when my fellow author Jennifer Fickley-Baker visited Disney Theme Park Merchandise headquarters. I’m happy to share that these new ornaments will be at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts within the next few weeks. Similar to the character ear hat ornaments released last summer, these new shoe ornaments contain some amazing details. The artwork for these ornaments was created by Disney Design Group artists Cody Reynolds and Costa Alavezos. Cody designed the majority of the shoes, including the Disney Princesses and other characters like Daisy Duck, Minnie Mouse or Mary Poppins. I recently spoke with Costa Alavezos about his experience creating the Disney Villain shoes.
