Attention Disney Fashionistas! The Latest from The Dress Shop at Cherry Tree Lane!

Hey there, Disney Fashion Lovers!

     If you are anything of a Disney fashionista, you probably know all about Dapper Day and Disney Bounding, but for those of you who may not by privy yet, allow me to fill you in. Dapper Days started in 2011, by a non-Disney associated group of people, looking to celebrate Disney by putting on their Sunday best and enjoying a day in the parks. Participants often dress in vintage styles and wear outfits that pay homage to Disneyland's first days, in the 50's. There are events each spring and fall, both at Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Events are open to anyone who has park admission and you can find out more about the events by clicking HERE.


     Disney Bounding is another adorable Disney trend, also started by an independent Disney fan, back in 2011. Disney Bounding is a unique way to dress in every day street clothes, but in creative ways that are reminiscent of your favorite Disney characters. The trend has become hugely popular in t…

Sweet Spells on Sunset Blvd at Disney's Hollywood Studios will be permanently closing from April 16 2018 to make way for a Pixar store.

Set to open alongside Toy Story Land on June 30 2018, the refurbished store will be the primary location for Pixar merchandise at the park.

The production kitchen and treats at Sweet Spells will be removed, although some prepackaged items will continue to be sold at other stores. For the non-packaged items, quick service dining locations will be the place to go.

Reel Vogue located next door to Sweet Spells will continue to operate during the refurbishment.

Cupcake Review! Lemon and Rose Gold Cupcakes from Contempo Cafe!

Hey Howdy Hey, Disney Foodies!

     Everyone ready for more sweet treats? Just last weekend, I stopped by the Contempo Cafe at The Contemporary Resort and got to check out two of Disney's newest cupcakes: A different version of the Rose Gold Mouse Ears Cupcake and a Lemon Cupcake! Can't wait to tell you about them, so come on along!
