Disneyland comes to Sherman Oaks with “That’s from Disneyland”

 

 

IMG_8669That’s from Disneyland is an amazing FREE pop exhibit by the Van Eaton Galleries open to the public featuring treasures and artifacts for all around the lands and hotel of Disneyland. The amazing memorabilia collection from Richard Kraft will be up for auction August 25 and 26, 2018. Yes, you can own a piece of Disneyland history for the right price, hope you’ve saved up your Disney Dollars. Of course even if you aren’t planning on purchasing anything you can still check out this amazing exhibit. Disclaimer you will have tons of photo opportunities so be prepared. I Disneybounded as a 50s Wendy Darling with a skirt I made and accessorized with a ballon pop corn bucket for a purse.

The Gallery is divided into lands just like Disneyland. Main Street U.S.A, Frontierland, Adventureland, Tomorrowland, New Orleans Square, and Fantasyland.

Mains Street, USA still has small town charm with old maps, window displays, and even a vehicle that once rode down the boulevard of the magic place.

Cruise on over to AdventureLands where you will find tropical shirts, Jungle Cruise Posters, and a singing Tiki Bird

 

Tame the west including some critters in Frontierland. canoes, posters, and some signs from Country Bear Playhouse can be seen.

 

 

Glide on over to New Orleans Square for some haunting and pirating. You’ll die over the photo ops there. Take some photos with the stretching portraits in the grave yards.

 

Blast off into Tomorowland with Rockets, People Mover, and fun memorabilia from the world of Tomorrow.

 

And if the future doesn’t look too bright, escape to Fanstasyland where elephants and ships Fly, the children of the world sing one song that means friendship, and everyone lives happily ever after.

 

And last but not least take some silly pictures with a sea creature before you head to check out the gift shop.

Disney Bounding Belle

Disney Bounding has become a bit more popular and unlike cosplay you don’t have to sew an exact replica. All you have to do is use regular clothes and accesorries  that represent the character. I had fun last week Disney Bounding as Belle in Disney World. I used a blue dress, a white blouse, ballet flats, and of course you can’t forget the blue bow.

I headed over to New Fantasyland to have lunch at Be Our Guest restaurant. I’m annoyed that they now require reservations when I went you just had to wait 40 minutes, now you have to book lunch reservations months in advance if you can even get through.

There are three different dinning rooms to choose from the ball room, the gallery room, or the west wing. The west wing is cool with a dark feeling and a rose losing it’s petals. I ended up in the gallery room.

My mom ordered the quiche with salad and I ordered the slow cooked pork, with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Everything was delicious

Of course you can’t forget dessert. The master cupcake is amazing, the grey stuff it’s delicious. It’s a chocolate cupcake with grey frosting and a chocolate piece. It was so moist and fluffy. I savored every bite.

I had a wonderful meal there and hope to be back there again.

Now after that wonderful lunch I headed to Gaston’s Tavern to see if Gaston was around. I was busy reading when I saw him, he noticed my book and then took it from me and put it high on the building rafter.

I took a few photos with him. He does like to take pictures, because he thinks he is beautiful.

IMG_5771When the picture taking was done I asked if he could “Please give me back my book”!”

IMG_5774

He really didn’t want to, in fact he got my book down and gave it to a total stranger and told him to throw it in the trash. You know he is not a fan of books. Maybe he doesn’t know how to read? Luckily the stranger gave it back. Gaston is quite the character, in fact I would say he is positively primeval.

After my time in the Magic Kingdom I headed over to Epcot, I had dinner reservations in France and also was excited that they had Village Belle there.

A quick stop at the UK and said hello to Alice.

Then off to France and at that moment it started raining so pictures with Belle were moved inside.

Reading is fun!

After my reading session with Belle I headed to Monsieur Paul, it’s a wonderful restaurant. I always like to splurge on one or two fancy meals during my vacation and this was it. I was compliment by the waitress who said when she approached the table she thought Belle was dinning with them.
