A look at the Disney Tails Merchandise

A look at the Disney Tails Merchandise
It's National Dog Day!  I  love dogs and although I don't have one of my own, my family has dogs that I enjoy spending time with when I visit.  When I saw that Disney had merchandise for dogs, I could not resist buying some for them!  The merchandise is part of a collection called "Disney Tails."  I found a display of them at Disney California Adventure during the summer at the shops connected to Trolley Treats and the Starbucks.  I believe you can find them at other locations around Disneyland and Disney World too.  The Disney Tails collection includes an assortment of dog toys, bowls, bandanas, collars, and leashes.  They're mostly meant for dogs but I imagine some of them could work for cats also!

A Look at the France Pavilion at Epcot

France Pavilion at Epcot

It's Bastille Day!  To celebrate, I'm sharing a look at my favorite pavilion in the World Showcase- France.  Someday I hope to really visit France but until then I like to daydream about it especially when I am at Epcot!

Disney World Vacation Highlights - May 2015

Disney World Vacation Highlights - May 2015

At the end of May, my husband and I spent time at one of our favorite places- Disney World!  It was a great vacation and we also celebrated my birthday while we were there.  We were both struggling with a bad cold the whole week before but luckily we had finally gotten over the worst of it by the day of our flight.  I think the Florida humidity helped us sweat out whatever was left!

We've gone on a few trips this year but this was the first longer one we'd done in a while and it was nice to have a full week off!  I have so much to share- here's a list of some of the highlights!

Spring Update

Good morning starshine, the earth says hello...

It's been a while since I've posted!  Spring has been a busy time for me both at home and at work.  April was a great month though that included possibly my favorite weekend getaway so far- Vancouver!  I can't wait until I finally have some time to sit down and write about the highlights from that trip. This month has been wonderful too but it seems my busy schedule has caught up to me because I managed to catch another bad cold.  Hopefully I can shake it off in time for our upcoming vacation!  For now here some photos from the last few weeks which I hope to eventually write about!

A Merry Knott's Berry Farm Easter

A Merry Knott's Berry Farm Easter

At the end of March as an early Easter gift to ourselves we bought season passes to Knott's Berry Farm. Over the last couple years, we've gone to their Marketplace many times, stayed at their hotel, done their coaster run, but I personally had never gone inside as an actual park guest. We'd considered getting the pass before and decided to finally go for it.  We bought them just in time for their Boysenberry Festival!

Hello April and Spring!

It's April and I'm glad that it is because I love spring!  My birthday is next month so I'm looking forward to that and we have some some fun plans that keep getting closer. If I was in Texas it'd also mean time for bluebonnets which makes me happy just thinking about it even though I'm not there.  I have another post I hope to share later but until then here's my things I like about this month list!

Dapper Day Spring 2015 Recap

About a month ago I went to this year's spring Dapper Day at Disneyland.  For this Dapper Day, my husband and I decided to make a weekend of it. We stayed at the Disneyland Hotel on Saturday night and it was wonderful and relaxing!  It's still my favorite of the hotels on Disneyland property but I'm a little biased since we got married there. :)

Where to Find Beer at Disney California Adventure- Updated!

Where to Find Beer at Disney California Adventure

Last year for St. Patrick's Day I put together a list of places to buy a beer at Disney California Adventure!  I updated the list and am sharing it again below!

*Note- Tower of Terror does not sell beer but is a good place to take a picture of it.  ;)  If your elevator ever makes it up to the Tip Top Club though I imagine you'd find some there.

March Forward

"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiousity keeps leading us down new paths." -Disney
So it's March and I'm finding that I miss February. ha ha. March had a bit of a shaky start. I caught a bad cold so I ended up getting behind on a lot of things. I also feel like a couple new things I've tried aren't quite working out.  I felt a bit discouraged so I thought I'd share the words above since I've been trying to keep them in mind lately. 

I started February with a list of what I like about it and thought I'd do it again for March except that it'll be more about what I'm looking forward to.  I'm a bit late since we're already almost two weeks in but March is a long month.  Even though the start wasn't the best- it's time to keep moving forward- or rather March forward!

Tsum Tsum Tuesday

It's Tuesday, so it's time for Tsum Tsum photos!  

Here's a photo of Dale and Dumbo fighting over peanuts at an Angels baseball game last year.

Dale and Dumbo Tsum Tsums fight over peanuts

Today is a special Tuesday because it's the first of the month so new Tsum Tsums were released at the Disney Stores in the US including the ones I really want- the Frozen ones! There are also Easter ones and bumble bee Winnie the Pooh ones!  My wallet is going to be in trouble the next time I visit the Disney Store!

Here are a few more photos!

Tsum Tsum Tuesday

A Suitcase of Tsum Tsums!

Last summer I became addicted to Tsum Tsums! I started playing the game and got some of my family hooked on it too! I also started buying the adorable plush and since then my collection has gotten pretty big.  I love the small tsums because they are the perfect size for traveling.  I usually keep one in my purse so I can take their photos in fun places!

The Golden Mickeys on the Disney Wonder

Golden Mickeys on the Disney Wonder

Happy Oscar Sunday! When we went on our Disney Cruise last year, we went to The Golden Mickeys. All the Oscar buzz reminds me of that fun night so I thought what better day to look back and share photos from it!

Back from Seattle, WA and Victoria, BC!

Victoria, British Columbia

I'm back from a long weekend getaway! My husband and I went to Seattle and then took a boat over to Victoria, British Columbia. We had never been to either place and had a fun time exploring both. We especially loved our time in Canada. It was the first time my husband and I left the country together and it was a great adventure. I wish we could go back already!  We had a wonderful time in Seattle too!  We had so much coffee there- I'm currently suffering from caffeine withdrawal! ;)  I'll share more once I get all our photos organized and get back to routine but for now here is a peek at a few pictures from our trip!

Friday Favorites- Better Call Saul, Cyber Squirrel, and more!

Friday Favorites
Happy Friday! I had a couple posts I planned to share this week but it ended up being much busier than I expected. I decided to put together a Friday Favorites post instead to share a few of my favorite things from the past couple weeks. I always like when other blogs do "friday favorites" or "things I love" posts so I thought I'd try one too. I don't know if I'll do this weekly but maybe once in a while! 

Soooo... here are some of my favorites from the past couple weeks!

Wizarding World of Harry Potter -Universal Studios Hollywood

 Wizarding World of Harry Potter coming 2016 -Universal Studios Hollywood

Recently my husband and I went to Universal Studios Hollywood. We had a lot of fun wandering around the park but one of the best parts was checking out the Wizarding World of Harry Potter construction. I didn't realize how much had been built so far!

As soon as we walked in we could tell that a lot of changes were happening from all the signs that read "Pardon our Stardust, EPIC Transformation Underway."

A Peek at the Boudin Bakery Tour in DCA

Boudin Bakery Tour at DCA

I recently stopped by Disney California Adventure and noticed that the work on "The Bakery Tour, hosted by Boudin Bakery," had been completed. I was happy to see it was open because I really missed being able to get my free sourdough sample when it was closed!

Hello February

Heart Donut

It's February, can you believe it? It feels like January flew by. January was a great month that included family, a Sherlock party, and adventures to Arendelle and Portland (more on that to come soon)!

I used to not be a big fan of February mostly due to Valentine's Day. I was like the Scrooge of Valentine's because I think it tends to make people feel lonely. Over the last few years though I've tried to look at it more positively and now the month of February is one I actually kind of look forward to.

Dream Fastpass- The Best Super Bowl Sunday Ever

Dream Fastpass- the best Super Bowl Sunday

The Super Bowl is this weekend and although I don't have much interest in watching the game, it still makes me smile. This is because when I think of the Super Bowl I think of the best Super Bowl Sunday ever- the day I got a Disneyland Dream Fastpass!

2015 Resolutions - Do Something New

2015 Resolutions- Do Something New

I have a few resolutions for 2015 but never got around to writing about them so here goes.  Most of my resolutions are usually the same as the year before- read more, exercise more, blog more... and most of the time I fail at them miserably.

My Awesome Desk Calendar plus a January update

My Desk Calendar

I received a desk calendar for Christmas and I love it.  The month of January has a photo from our fun trip to Chicago last year. It's a busy period at work so it's been nice to have such a cheerful addition on my desk!

Moments in EPCOT World Showcase

EPCOT IllumiNations

EPCOT is one of my favorite places.  I love Figment, Spaceship Earth, but most of all I love the World Showcase.  It is so breathtaking there with the pavilions representing different countries.  Sometimes when I am at a theme park I feel the need to rush around and do as much as possible, but in EPCOT I find myself taking my time to enjoy the peaceful and happy moments as I wander around World Showcase Lagoon.  Today I am sharing some photos from there with you.

Welcome to My World Showcase!

Welcome to My World Showcase

Hi all!  My name is Nerissa and welcome to my blog!  I picked the name My World Showcase because this where I plan to showcase a bit of my world which includes my adventures, Disney, and more.  Plus the name is related to EPCOT which is one of my favorite places!  My partner in most of my adventures is my husband Jared.  We got married at the Disneyland Hotel just a few years ago but have been friends for more than ten.  We are kids at heart who love to have fun, enjoy traveling, and visiting theme parks.  In the past I've been blogging at So Disney and Pixie Dust Nails but I have so many interests that I wanted a place where I could share them all so here it is!   Thanks for following along!
