OPI and Disney do it again. Minnie Mouse style!

I've talked before about the awesome collaboration between OPI and Disney with their Pirates Of The Carribean collection. Well now they've done it again and I'm sure that once my daughter sees them, we will own all the colors!

This June, the limited edition Vintage Minnie Mouse collection will hit stores and Disney fans everywhere will get the chance to adorn their nails in four limited edition nail lacquers. All the colors appear to be true to Minnie's personal style and super cuteness. Iconic red and classic pink seem to be the theme, with each bottle setting you back about $9. I Love them all.

“OPI is so excited to collaborate with Disney and draw inspiration from one of the world’s most popular characters,” explained Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “This collection brings together the expertise of OPI and the iconic style of Minnie Mouse to inspire the distinct palette of vibrant, feminine shades for summer."

Please Stand Clear Of The Doors

   I'll admit that I'd be perfectly happy to just go to Disney World and ride the monorail around for an hour or two. I like to people watch, gaze out the window and clap like a fool every time I see the castle approaching . I like the smell-yes the smell- and like all Disney crack heads recite the only Spanish words I know by heart. If you don't know what I'm talking about you just might want to slink away from your computer in shame right now.

The monorail can be an oasis from  the chaos or chaos in its truest form. Either way, it's familiar and mine and I love it. The next time I ride it however there will be changes. The spiel that you listen to as you ride round and round is new and improved (? ) The original from Jack Wagner-not All I need General Hospital Jack Wagner- was recently replaced. Time will tell if I like it, but change can be hard.

Disney World Starts Serving Starbucks - Return between 8:30 - 9:30

If you are anything like us, any Disney World trip involves arriving at the park prior to the rope drop and getting into the park before the crowds arrive. The one thing missing from this plan has always been coffee.

Frankly, there is only so much Nescafe this gal can drink.

Disney announced yesterday they will be partnering with Starbucks and opening various Starbucks locations throughout the Disney parks. While I was hoping for a Dunkin' Donuts partnership, this was welcome news for us early birds looking for our caffeine fix.

the people have spoken
While I am sure Disney did their research and expected some receptive responses, I wonder if they fully anticipated the feedback on their official Disney blog. Take for example the post about Bibbibi Bobbidi Boutique on the Disney Fantasy - 1 comment. Starbucks posting - 117 comments.

I browsed the comments last night and the majority of feedback was overwhelmingly positive. The bulk of questions revolved around fear of not getting coffee in time and installing some sort of Fastpass system to control the crowds,  as well as how the dining plan fits in. No answers on either question from Disney but I'm sure they will get right on that.

In the meantime, I'll refill my mug with some Nescafe and meet you at Peter Pans Flight.
