We don’t know about you, but we are still reeling from all the D23 news about changes coming to the Disney Parks! We. Cannot. Wait.
So while Disney focuses on those 50 changes honoring Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary in 2021 we have a few of our own fun things happening here on the blog we wanted share with you. Here is what we’ve been brewing for fall…
In Our Disney-Inspired Shops
New Disney Inspired Shop Site Announcement
We have a new shop site at https://polkadotpixieshop.com/
Our new site will allow you to sign up for our rewards program to earn points towards discounts, find the stuff in our shop a little easier and see what’s new. You can now also buy our merch on pinterest and in our facebook shop .
And no worries, you can still shop on etsy, use your etsy giftcards and your etsy coupons too at our etsy shop! https://www.etsy.com/shop/PolkaDotPixieDust .
We will be stocking all shops simultaneously with our new designs, so you can be sure not to miss a thing. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter if you haven’t already to stay in the loop.
Monthly Magical Missions: Charitable Giving
In the spirit of Walt Disney’s vision to support Community, Conservation and Creativity with a focus on the underserved we will be choosing one design each month to align with a charity. When you purchase this design we will donate 15% of the profit to the charity chosen. We are so thrilled to be able to help support this work.
August’s mission helps to save our planet, environment and wildlife.
Here’s a sneak peak of September’s design.
September Design: Atlantica Little Mermaid Design (not yet released).
Supporting: Oceana. You can read more about Oceana’s work protecting and restoring our oceans here.
In addition to our Disney-inspired tees we’re introducing hats, pins, and some digital downloads to decorate your Disney Resort Window. Since we’re still testing these out we’ll only release a couple here and there, but we promise they will all be awesome. Mermaid Lagoon Pin Releases Monday 8/21/2017. Limited Edition. Limited Quantity.
Holiday Disney-Inspired Designs
We’ve been unveiling Food and Wine, Halloween and Fall items over the last few weeks, but the ones we get the most questions about are Christmas designs. If you’re following us on instagram you’ve already gotten a sneak peak of our Jingle Cruise and Little Mermaid Christmas designs. Stay tuned for a glimpse of what we’re creating. Christmas Designs will arrive in the shops mid-October.
On The Blog
Food and Wine Festival at Walt Disney World 2017
As part of our annual sabbatical to WDW we’ll be reviewing the foods, events, and reporting back. If you want to get a head start you can look through the menus we’ve shared of this years food and wine festival running from August 31- November 13, 2017. We can’t get enough of the vintage Disney merchandise for Epcot Food & Wine and the 35th Anniversary.
Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party at Walt Disney World 2017
We are dressing up as Haunted Mansion characters for Halloween this year! We never miss an opportunity to put on a fun costume- even if it means stuffing too many things in our suitcase. Little G is gonna take one for the team by walking around Disney in ballerina slippers… we’ll see how that goes. We are also super excited about the special Halloween snacks, our favorite characters all dressed up and the fact that we have this Halloween party strategy down! Check out our Disney Halloween tips and tricks to get ready.
New Disney Restaurant and Disney Resort Reviews
Oh so many restaurants to try! You would think after about 5 years straight of visiting WDW that we would have checked everything off our to-do lists. Nope! While making the bucket lists this summer, we discovered there’s quite a bit that needs doing! So new resort and restaurant reviews are on the way this fall. At one point, we will conquer them all!
Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party 2017
We are so very excited for our first Christmas at Disney! With yet another checklist in tow we plan to tackle this one with a little strategy and a lot of fun. We will probably go overboard on this one folks. Christmas is our favorite time of year and mixing that with a side of free cookies, cocoa, snow on Main Street and a special Holiday Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Card is enough for twenty blog posts. Get Ready!
Our Vacation Announcement
So as you can see, there is a lot happening for us over the next four months. We’ll be at Walt Disney World in September and December and sharing everything in between.
