A magical invitation such as this requires full expression of one’s Disney Side. Though I had dabbled in the DisneyBounding fun at last year’s celebration, a further read mandated a bit more Imagineering…
NEW YORK CITY
Disney Social Media Moms Celebration “On-The-Road”
Did somebody say historic?! My family has had a relationship with the New Amsterdam Theatre since 1997 (read more about that in an upcoming post Behind the Scenes Tour Of the New Amsterdam Theatre | Disney Social Media Moms Celebration On-The-Road) so my gut told me that this event would be more magical than most. (IF that was possible.) In this summer of remembrance and homage to the man who started it all, my mind leapt to the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration that we will take part in this July and the 60 Days to 60 Years series that 59 other Walt Disney-adorers and myself are participating in. Nostalgia rules the day and my Disney Side must reflect it!

Enter “it’s a small world.” Is it ever! I spotted my pal Lisa Robertson front and Main Street, U.S.A. center for the media launch of the Diamond Celebration. Just look at her! Noticing the Mary Blair trademark immediately, I felt a sentimental call to my own 50 Year Cruise. Just watch Lisa’s video and tell me your retro spirit isn’t inspired.
Talk about one moon and one golden sun colliding! I contacted Lisa to find out where I might purchase such a frock and she referred me to Pinup Girl Clothing’s “The Magic of Mary Blair Collection.” (NOTE: Nether Lisa nor I receive an affiliate compensation for this mention. I do it solely as a courtesy to you, my villagers. Think Dapper Days girls!) I found a dress worthy of the occasion and thought I was set.
Until I spotted this posted on the other town in our village- Twitter.
I entered and won. How’s that for kismet?! @teresalovera of @CATravelGirls could not have been sweeter and made sure I received my “diamond” pin before the big show!
Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration
Now I knew I needed one more element to complete the ode to Walt and his big year; those diamond-crusted Disneyland 60 EARS I’ve been seeing sparkling all over social media. Knowing I couldn’t get my own pair until July, I sent the SOS to my West Coast shoppers. “Though the mountains are wide” a pair landed on my doorstep from a true darling. A Disney kindred spirit understood the call.
At last, DisneyBounding garb worthy of
Surely “it’s time we’re aware”- diamonds can’t be a girl’s best friend. Like the lights on Broadway, the flesh and blood variety shine brighter.
