I don’t know how many of you believe in luck, magic, unicorns, or even double rainbows, but this month you can be on the lookout for all of these, plus a little more. What does this all mean? Well, I’m here to tell you, there are some pretty cool events and releases coming up in March and I can guarantee you won’t want to miss them.
Have you joined the ranks of the Sci-Fi Academy yet? This year’s trading event will be a blast to the past as well as a foray into the future. Tickets went on sale March 1, and if you haven’t had the chance to check out all of the galactic offerings available, do it today. My favorite pieces so far are the Mechanical Kingdom “Steampunk” Map Set, the Penny Arcade Mystery Collection and the Stand-Up Pin Set – 8 Bit Mickey. Have I geeked out too much? I mean, what’s not to love?
If you’re “lucky” enough to pick up this month’s treat, you won’t regret it. Freshly made for you this month and straight from the candy kitchens is a St. Patrick’s Day-themed apple and marshmallow treat. So if you are looking for something sweet to eat on March 17, stop in to Candy Palace or Marceline’s Confectionery.
St. Patrick’s Day Offerings
If you’re hoping to find the pot of gold at end of the rainbow this year, let us help you do it in style. There are some great offerings “in store” for you, and fellow blogger Steven Miller had fate on his side. We had a coin toss to see who would be the one to show off this year’s St. Patrick’s Day “must have” items, and he won. So keep watching the Disney Parks Blog; it won’t disappoint.
Robert Olszewski Signing
On the schedule to appear at the Disneyana Shop this month, (March 19, from 9-11 a.m. to be exact) is miniaturist Robert Olszewski. For those of you who have collected other sculptures from Olszewski’s Main Street, U.S.A., Collection, or from the attraction series, this piece will be probably be a dream come true. This is the first time that Olszewski has re-wound time to give us a glimpse of the “House of the Future.”
Have you collected any of Olszewski’s pieces?
Last but not least this month, both Walt Disney World Resort (March 25) and Disneyland Resort (March 26) will introduce a new Disney Theme Park exclusive sculpture and ornament. Dara will be blogging later this month about these new releases and the events that will be taking place on both coasts. So save the dates and be on the lookout for more information.
I don’t know about you, but with all of these events, my calendar is full. So be sure to add these releases to your calendar before you miss out. I have so much more to share with you this month, including an interview with Designer Tarina Tarantino, some hidden mysteries of Main Street, U.S.A., and even a little bit of good old-fashioned magic, so I better wrap this up and get started on my next post.
