Hello! It’s been a while. I’m taking a short break from finishing my blog entries of my trip to Taiwan and Japan to do a brief post on my recent visit to Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary celebration.

I’m a huge fan of Disneyland (I try to make it my goal to visit the park at least once a year, I’ve kept true to my goal since my sophomore year in college ^_^). I had originally planned to go to Disneyland during their 24 hour celebration but unfortunately it was the same day as my actual graduation date (Huhuhu…plenty of more chances in the future I guess!).

Anyway, this trip was kind of spur of the moment; it was planned within two days of arriving back in the United States. Kinda crazy right? We booked the hotel and just made plans to arrive in Anaheim Friday evening and just spend Saturday at…

Pretty as a [Disney] Penny

Our family loves the Disney pressed coins. What do you do with yours?-Mztress

By Kaila

If you follow me on Instagram (if you’re not following me, clickthe link located at the end of my menu…good stuff, I tell you!), you’re aware that I’ve been busy getting my new apartment together. I’ve added Disney touches throughout– decor with the mouse (or any Disney character, really) just makes me so happy.

I want to show you all one piece I’m quite proud of. My sister and I made this crafty Pinterest project after collecting a plethora of shiny, souvenir Disney pennies on our trip in June 2014:


My penny display is proudly hanging in my new bathroom, and it certainly adds to mundane getting-ready experience.

I loved collecting these coppery gems. Penny collecting is a fairly cheap endeavor that is so much fun to tackle–love a certain ride, character, or resort? Just visit the many penny-presser-thingys found all over Disney property and discover little souvenirs that don’t…

The Mysterious Epcot Sinkhole

This one is interesting! Anyone know of more details?-Mztress

Not sure how many people have heard about the mysterious sinkhole at Epcot center. According to the story, the sinkhole is that area where The Odyssey Restaurant was built, and subsequently where they formed a small lake area and bridge walkways.

If you do a web search you can find stories and articles about the sinkhole.  Basically before Epcot was built, the land in that spot was sinking, I believe they had vehicles parked there during the construction phase and they noticed the ground sinking.

After they discovered the sinkhole area, they changed design plans – moved some ideas around, and came up with what you see above. They reinforced the building and walkways with concrete pylons, anchored the monorail line to concrete pads, they loaded up the hole with concrete and formed this small lake as you can see above.

I had no idea about the backstory about the…
