I had tears while walking down main street. It was surreal to see the original theme  park that Walt build from the ground up. I knew it was smaller than the Magic Kingdom but it didn’t feet underwhelming or small it was actually cozy and warm…it felt like home. The general atmosphere was more like hanging out with friends than a “vacation,” which was nice. And one of the greatest moments was seeing the light above the Disneyland Fire Dept.

Since it was my first visit to Disneyland, I had to Disneybound. So we disneybounded as Anna and Elsa and waited 3 hours to meet them, but is was so worth it. They didn’t just love and shove like we thought but they spend a while with us talking and sharing stories with us. I loved them!!!!!

We saw World of Color which was amazing!!! And we had great viewing because we did the Carthay Circle three-course dining special. =)

Another really special moment was when we met Sarah and Leo. They were so nice and it was awesome to finally meet them in person! =)

I also love Soundsational!!!!!!! One of my favorite parades! And I loved Toon Town! I remember when it was still in Disney World and it was so fun to see Minnie and Pluto walking around without forming a line for pictures or crazy people chasing them. They just walking around and had fun! It was so cool!

Frozen Storyboard Panel at WonderCon

Frozen is truly an epic movie that will be references and cherished until the end of time. The messages, morals, and values it portrays are universal, however the film is still unique in its own way.

Those at WonderCon this past weekend got to hear from a panel of Frozen story board artists. They discussed the ways in which the story progressed and changed and how crucial alterations to original concepts shifted the tone of the film completely.

For those who could not attend WonderCon here is a summary of the panel from collider.com
