Disney World Melt-Down (Diva definition) “The actions that result from being tired, hot, hungry, having aching feet, being over-stimulated, saying no to your greedy kids for the 1,000th time, dealing with a nagging spouse, and knowing that you spent a lot of money to be at WDW.
WDW Melt-Downs usually manifest themselves in the park as:

I’m excited to share with you that one of MY favorite movies, Disney’s Newsies, will be released on Disney Blueray DVD on June 19th.
You don’t remember it? Perhaps this will ring a bell. The movie starred Academy Award® winners Christian Bale and Robert Duvall and screen favorite Ann-Margaret. Newsies tells the true tale of a courageous group of newsboys in a classic musical style, and has fabulous dance sequences choreographed by Kenny Ortega (High School Musical) as well as an engaging story produced by Hollywood legend Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast).
The app, which is $3.99 in the iTunes store, allows the owner to use their Apple device to “read” the storybook. You will find interactive games such as puzzles, sing-alongs, and pictures to “paint” online, embedded in the story as you progress through the pages.
When you first log on you will be asked to “personalize” your book by inserting your picture and a name. This really doesn’t serve any purpose than just looking cool from what I can tell however. Let me tell you a bit more about the app.
Nothing says “girly girl” quite the way that a totally princess-ed out girl can! And nothing at Walt Disney World quite princess-es out your girly girl like Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.
There are two locations for the BBB at Walt Disney World. The first is at the World of Disney Store in Downtown Disney and the other is INSIDE Cinderella’s Castle. Yup you read that correctly, INSIDE the castle.
WHEN SHOULD I MAKE RESERVATIONS? You really need to make your reservation AS CLOSE TO 180 DAYS IN ADVANCE of your trip as you can by calling 407-WDW-STYLE. However, if you are under the 180 days mark when you decide to book your Walt Disney World trip, then I say book them AS SOON AS YOU CAN! Time slots do fill up quickly, so do not hesitate.
