Frozen Fun in the Sun -by Marc

Olaf, everyone’s favorite snowman from animated Disney hit, Frozen, has told audience worldwide that his dream is to experience summer. With a little help from Elsa, Olaf has brought his dream to Disney’s Hollywood Studios as “Frozen Summer Fun”. This new event features Anna and Elsa and for the first time Kristoff. The fun begins each morning at around 11am with a royal processional along Hollywood Boulevard leading to the show stage. As “snow” falls, “snowflakes”, ice harvesters, skiers, and some of Arendelle’s locals march and dance, followed quickly by a float of Oaken’s Trading Post log where Kristoff rides.   The processional concludes with the appearance of beloved Princess Anna and her magical sister, Queen Elsa. Shortly after the processional, Olaf appears on the big sound stage screen and leads the audience in the Let It Go sing-along (a song that by now most people have committed to memory). Guests can also join Anna and Elsa at the Premiere Theater where they join the sisters in a magical retelling of their story in For the First Time in Forever Frozen Celebration. More excitement awaits guests at Oaken’s Frozen Funland (located at Soundstage One) for ice skating and snowman building. The fun continues at night. Anna, Elsa, and Kristoff, take the stage for the Frozen Fireworks Spectacular. To thank the adoring crowd, Elsa creates some magic in the sky with some spectacular fireworks. This dazzling display is followed by Anna’s own wish for nighttime magic (provided by Elsa) and concludes with the fall of “snow” that is sure to make everyone want to build a snowman.

Some tips for the processional and the show. Be sure to arrive at least an hour before the show starts for a good spot along Hollywood Boulevard. If guests with disabilities or those traveling with special needs guests would like the best seat for the show, see a castmember for assistance. Generally, any spot along Hollywood Blvd towards the stage is the best place to view the show. Check the guide paper and time sheet for updates and changes and/or consult the My Disney Experience app available for iphone, ipads, etc.  Finally, the Frozen Summer Fun show, which started in July, has been extended to the 28th of September and currently, a special Frozen Fun Premium Package is available for those wishing to reserve their spots for all the summertime fun. So be sure to join Anna, Elsa, Kristoff and Olaf for this frozen fun in the sun event.

Carrot Souffle Contemporary Resort Recipe....

I have made over 40 Disney recipes but this was not one of the good ones. I had high hopes for this because I made a previous carrot souffle Disney recipe which was amazing. For that recipe click here:

This was lacking so much flavor & had a weird texture. If you are dying to try a new Disney recipe I'd recommend the other one I posted in this article. It was so sad because it looks so good.

You can find the Blueberry Cheese Buckle at Cinderella's Royal Table in the Magic Kingdom. The picture above is the buckle served with lemon ice cream. 

I had a TON of blueberries I had to use quickly so I randomly found this recipe online. This recipe was super easy to make. It is 3 different steps that you put together at the last second. I have also made the chocolate buckle & that one is out of this world! Here is the chocolate buckle recipe if you are interested: 

I made nine LARGE muffins. These were so good I had people at work fighting over them & several people asking me for the recipe! 


YIELD: 1 Dozen ( I made 9 large Muffins) 
3/4 stick (6 Tbl) Unsalted Butter
3/4 cup Granulated sugar
1 ea. + 1 yolk Eggs
1/3 cup Milk, whole

2 cups Fresh Blueberries
1 1/2 cups Cream Cheese, whipped
3 Tbl. Unsalted Butter
1/2 cup Flour
3 1/2 Tbl. Sugar
1/4 tsp Cinnamon


Batter - Melt butter. Whisk in milk, eggs and vanilla. Mix all dry ingredients together, then add milk mixture and stir until combined. Don't over mix. Gently fold in blueberries. Divide batter among muffin pans. Insert I tsp of cream cheese into the center of the batter.
Topping -- Rub together all ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle over batter.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 18 - 20 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool in pans for 15 - 20 minutes then carefully remove from cups. Serve warm with lemon ice cream.

Disney Wedding...

We went to a Disney themed wedding over the weekend! Their wedding rehearsal was so cute. I really wish I took pics! It was on his parent's property on the river. They have a long drive with those LED Mickey & Minnie solar lights all up the drive. They had a lot of Mickey & Minnie gnomes as well. It was a really nice party.

I will tell you that the bride interned at Disney & the groom was an engineer at Disney. He was oblivious to the fact that she liked him. Finally one night a bunch of their friends hung out at the park one night & he "got it." He moved away to another job to PA & after only a month of dating & then she moved up with him. After a year they got engaged. He proposed in front of the famous castle in Germany. :) They have since moved back down to FL working for Disney & Universal. They are both engineers.They are truly one of the sweetest couples I've ever met. She glows when she talks about him or when she would post on FB updates about how excited she was to marry him.

At their wedding ceremony the prequel music that was played on the piano was "Beauty & the Beast" "Colors of the Wind" " Can You Feel the Love Tonight" She was an absolutely beautiful bride. They both did Weight Watchers & both lost a lot of weight & both look wonderful!

Their centerpieces were Cinderella carriages & castles with sunflowers.

Their wedding was at Marriott Ranch in Front Royal,VA We had a great time at their wedding & hope they enjoy their AMAZING honeymoon at DisneyLand Paris. They are staying at the DL hotel for their Honeymoon. I cannot wait to see all of her pictures!

My husband has been friends with him since high school. We met him & her at Hershey Park last year. Soon after meeting her we realized we both did the Disney college program. Not only that but we both worked in the same exact area & knew some of the same people. My husband told him that day that she was a keeper & he better hold on to her. :) We are glad that he did & we wish them a long, happy& healthy marriage together.....
