Mama Melrose at Hollywood Studios Review

 During our time at Hollywood Studios, we had reservations at Mama Melrose, the Italian restaurant. 

Mama Melrose is located in the back of the park in the Grand Avenue section. It is near the Muppet Vision attraction.  

When we got to the restaurant, we checked into to let them know we arrived and then waited outside the restaurant for a text to tell us our table was ready.

What Really Happens if you DNS a Disney Race...

  My last race ( before the world shut down) was the Hershey Half Marathon in October of 2019. That was the race that got me motivated to run again after a devastating loss that summer. I was looking forward to doing more races in 2020, but we all know that if we didn't run races in January or February of that year, than a race didn't happen.

Fairytales and Fitness

That's why I was so excited to sign up for one of the Disney Wine and Dine races when Run Disney returned in November of 2021!

Basin White at Disney for an Interactive Experience and Personalized Souvenirs.

 If you only ever visit the beautiful and expansive lobby of  Disney's  Grand Floridian Resort, you might actually miss one of our favorite little shops, Basin White.  Basin White, or often just called Basin's is a shop that sells soaps and bath products.  

You can make your visit somewhat "interactive" if you wish and you can pick up some pretty inexpensive and practical souvenirs.  What I like most about Basin White is not only all the amazing scents, but you can basically "build your own" products/souvenirs.

The New Year & Some Favorite Holiday Disney Items


Yay, we made it through the first week of the New Year!  I hope you all had a nice Holiday season. We had a really nice Christmas with family and are ready to be back on the blog with more Disney and Lifestyle content for 2022! Today I will start putting away the rest of the Christmas decorations but before I do, I wanted to share some of the Disney Holiday merchandise I've acquired this season.

 Most of these items came from the Disney Parks, unless otherwise noted.
