Mean Nice/Naughty Muggin’ Monday

I found today’s “mug” at Michaels. What I love about this Mason jar is that it has “Nice” on one side and “Naughty” on the other.  What I do not like is that I can not put warm beverages in it (per the sticker on the bottom). It would nice to drink hot cocoa from the jar with a candy cane hanging off the side.  The mug retails for $5.99.

Today’s guest mug is from Beth of Any Happy Little Thoughts . Beth stated “I finally took some pics of my newest mug I bought at Disneyland, in the Tower of Terror gift shop at DCA. I love the expressions of Mickey, Goofy and Donald who are all featured on the mug, and it is one of my favorite rides in the parks. Another bonus – it is a large mug! It was $14.95 and is noted as the Tower of Terror Character Drop Mug on the receipt”.

Zip Lining in St. Kitts

When planning my cruise itinerary onboard the Disney Magic, zip lining caught my eye.  I have never done it, but always wanted to.  Scared?  Yes a little.  However, the feeling of accomplishing something on my bucket list was overriding the fear.

On October 3rd, the Disney Magic pulled into the port of St. Kitts.  This was the last stop of our Southern Caribbean cruise before sailing back to Puerto Rico. The excursion was to take place in the afternoon.  Sara ( @DisneySara ) and I had a chance to eat and relax before leaving the ship. Once we checked in, we were lead off the ship where we turned in a wavier and had to be weighed.  Yes…weighed!!  I did not want to see what the scale said after eating cookies and ice cream every day since getting on the ship.

We were loaded onto a bus and made our way through the streets of St. Kitts.  Our driver gave us some history of St. Kitts.  I was paying attention, but then again I was not.  I was thinking about flying across the top of trees.

The company used for our adventure was Sky Safari.

We were fitted for our equipment and given a tutorial on how to sit in the harness as well as how to position ourselves when we stopped.  The group was divided in half.  We were lucky enough to be paired with Sugar Lips and OMG.  They were funny and professional.

There is not much I can say about the view while zip lining.  The pictures and video speak for themselves.

Would I do it again?  Yes I would.  This experience was a memorable one just like sailing the Southern Caribbean with Disney Cruise Line.

BURBANK, Calif. – NOVEMBER 10, 2014 – To celebrate Disney’s big-screen adaptation of the hit Broadway musical Into the Woods, Disney twenty-three, the publication of D23: The Official Disney Fan Club, got all the thrilling details from the stars and creative team behind the new breathtaking, upcoming film. In exclusive interviews with Disney twenty-three, stars Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, Anna Kendrick and Chris Pine, along with director Rob Marshall and screenplay author James Lapine, detail the excitement and challenges of bringing the Tony® Award-winning musical to the big screen, including explaining how they played a game of hide-and-seek with some (fake) witchy fingernails and how the team gracefully—and sometimes hilariously—handled Blunt’s pregnancy during filming.

 Disney twenty-three’s Winter issue, available exclusively to Gold Members of D23, also includes a fascinating look “behind the seas” at Disney Cruise Line, with dazzling photography that reveals places guests never see while on board, as well as interviews with the people who keep everything shipshape. “It’s Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas” unlocks the secrets that enable the creative teams at Disneyland to bring the holidays to life, seemingly overnight. Director Steve Purcell unwraps the newest Disney•Pixar television treasure, Toy Story That Time Forgot, which airs on ABC December 2.
