The Latest on the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade

It is almost Spring!!  (Well, it might not seem like it in the Northeast right now with the latest polar vortex but now you have something to look forward to in the next few months.)  The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is getting close to being finished and it will be on Main Street U.S.A. before we know it.

Check out the latest from the Disney Imagineers.

It has been so long since we’ve had a new 3 o’clock parade and I am sooooo excited about this one!!!

Which float are you most excited about?

Here is some concept art to help get you excited:

Merchandise Monday – Designs by Dodie does Disney

Everyone  – or at least anyone worth their salt – loves Disney merchandise.  Have you ever wanted anything just a little different but weren’t sure where to look.  Well, look no further my Disney friends because Designs by Dodie is just the merchant you need.

Designs by Dodie is owned by non-other than Dodie from Indianapolis, Indiana.  It is a creative outlet for Dodie who has a stressful desk job by day.  Not only does she sell her creations in her Etsy store but in local Indianapolis boutiques and craft and art fairs.  She has a little bit of this and a little bit of that to be sure.  And you can be certain that whatever she creates is made with a little faith, trust, and pixie dust.

Do you or someone you know love Ariel?  Then these zipper pulls/purse charms might be just the thing for your mermaid.

Go "under the sea" with this beautiful zipper pull/dangle/purse charm - seahorse!

Princesses aren’t your thing?  How about Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride? The Haunted Mansion? Pirates of the Caribbean? Or Big Thunder Mountain?

There are always Walt Disney World Map Coasters to keep the Disney magic alive in between visits to the Parks.

If you have a favorite character you don’t see or a special request, just let Dodie know and I am sure she will be happy to come up with something to meet your needs, if she is able.

Happy Shopping!!!

 

(As a proviso, Visit the Magic is in no way affiliated with Designs by Dodie but she is a dear friend.  We receive no compensation for “pimping her out”.  In fact, she has no idea we are even posting her items our Merchandise Monday post.  We do however hope that is she sells a few items she will buy us a slushie drink in France the next time we are in Epcot.  Hint, hint!!!!)
