It's All in the Disney Details - Trash Cans


Whenever someone asks me what sets Walt Disney World apart from other theme parks, besides the great customer service and that indescribable Disney magic, I have to mention the details.  Disney does a remarkable job of transporting you from the real world to the “world of yesterday, tomorrow, and fantasy.”  From the attractions and the queues, to the resorts and the shops, the attention to detail is nothing less than amazing.

Disney's BoardWalk Resort Trash Can
One of the best things about a Walt Disney World vacation is that no matter how many times I visit, I find some new detail that I never noticed before.  It keeps the trips exciting year after year to explore the parks and resorts at a slower pace to really take in all the wonderful details.  On a recent trip I was on the lookout for an inspiration for a new photo series and found a very exciting new muse…trash cans.  Yes.  You read that right… I took pictures of trash cans.

It was on my first solo trip that I really noticed the trash cans and the detail that was put into these simple trash receptacles.  Touring the parks solo, I took my time walking through the parks and stopped at every trash can to admire its unique beauty.  I am sure that when people saw me taking pictures of trash cans they were thinking “what is this girl doing taking pictures of trash cans” but they are quite the interesting subject matter.

In the Magic Kingdom, each land has its own trash can design that fits into the theme of the land.  In Tomorrowland, you have the silver, futuristic trash cans with the Tomorrowland logo.  Fantasyland trash cans fit the land perfectly with their whimsical design.  The Fantasyland logo adds a charming touch.  The Storybook Circus trash cans are also really fun and compliment the area incredibly well.

The different pavilions in Epcot also feature different designs on their trash cans.  A really cute trash can is in The Seas pavilion.  Can you use the word cheerful to describe a trash can? Something about those colors and the logo just make me feel happy. Other great trash cans are in Pixar Place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.  These trash cans are fun, with bright colors and whimsical designs.

Disney's Polynesian Resort trash can
Even some of the resorts have themed trash cans!  Perhaps my favorite trash can of all the trash cans in Walt Disney World is the one at the Polynesian.  Mahalo for such a well themed trash can!

Who would think that something that collects trash could add that extra detail that is Disney magic at its finest?  It’s in the little things, like making the trash cans become part of their surroundings, that Disney does best.  Next time you visit a Disney park, take a second to check out some of the trash cans. After all, one man’s trash (or trash can) is another man’s treasure.

It’s all in the Disney details!

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,
