Day 1095: One...Two...Three...

Three years.

I can't even begin to express how amazing and wonderful it feels to have the knowledge that I've been doing this for three whole years. I mean, just think about what kind of time that means. Since I started Everyday Disney I've graduated High School, moved to college, had plenty of ups and downs and late nights, played a lot of saxophone, went on more Disney trips than I ever thought I might in a three year period, and did a bunch of other stuff I can't even remember now because I'm too tired to do so. But, in a nutshell, just look at a few of the things that 2015 brought me:

To top it all off and ring in the new year, I skipped the ball drop in Times Square tonight for something that felt a little more a live stream of the countdown at Walt Disney World, which I took probably as many pictures of as I do when I attend any fireworks show live. 

And, of course, before we say goodbye to 2015 as a whole, we have to go back and complete the last month of the Everyday Disney Challenge: 

Thank you all for another wonderful year of Everyday Disney, and I'll see you all in 2016! 

Have a magical day!

Day 1094: 2015

Usually on this blog post I go back and count all the words and the top searches for the year, but that sounds like entirely too much work at this point. After all, I can probably tell you flat out what some of the top things I talked about this year, and since GIFs were such a huge part of the year too, I figured we might as well share those topics through GIFs! It's like killing two birds with one stone!

Star Wars

I think it's safe to say that Star Wars was a HUGE topic this year, what with The Force Awakens premiering on December 18. With that premiere, the entire world exploded with Star Wars, and I couldn't have been happier. After all, I'm an avid Star Wars fan, and this new film gave me the perfect opportunity to get right back into the series at hyperspeed! 

Spaceship Earth

I talk about Spaceship Earth a ridiculous amount, but that's to be expected when it's your favorite Disney attraction. Honestly, I have no idea how many times I've been on it, although I definitely estimate it at over 150 times. Regardless, I'm pretty sure I could just sit and watch this GIF all day long. 


With my trip to Disneyland in August, I definitely talked about the original park more than usual. Plus, on top of my trip, there was also the 60th Anniversary, which certainly accounts for something too. And you know what, while I love Walt Disney World, I really love Disneyland too, and I can't wait to plan a trip back.

Colin O'Donoghue

Considering the fact that I love Colin enough to drive four and a half hours to go to the premiere of his new movie, I doubt it's any surprise that he ends up on this life. In addition to his spectacular acting on Once Upon A Time, you have to also account for the fact that he one upped his 2014 Happy Birthday tweet with a phone call. I may have forgotten my own name, but that's not what matters here. 

Once Upon A Time

And speaking of Once Upon A Time, that probably continues to be one of my most talked about things as well. After all, it accounts for a good half of the Sundays in the year, and the other half I just spend waiting for OUAT to come back. 


I don't have an actual GIF for this, but I think this one will do rather nicely. After all, Han here perfectly demonstrates what most of the college experience is like! From final exams, back to studying, classes, long hours, homework, multiple meetings per day, concerts, computer problems, and a lack of sleep, by the time you finish each semester you definitely feel like you can take on a whole galaxy. 

Walt Disney World

Aside from Spaceship Earth and Disneyland, my home of Walt Disney World is always a popular topic around here, especially with two trips in 2015 and one coming up super soon in 2016. 

And you know what, as we approach a new year, everyone is going to ask you one question: 

To which you reply:

But actually, 2016 might just be the best year yet. 

Have a magical day!

Day 1093: Lucky 15: Part 2

It's time again to share some of my all time favorite posts from Everyday Disney, which I do every half year! Of course, you can always head back and see my favorite posts from 2013 (Part 1 | Part 2) and 2014 (Part 1 | Part 2), as well as the first half of 2015, which you can find HERE!

Sunday, July 19, 2015: Day 930: Bedtime Story

Spaceship Earth related things appear on my blog pretty often, but as I went back through my blog posts from the last half of the year, I couldn't help but pause at this one. I still miss the old version of Spaceship Earth, and wish more than anything to head on it again, but I suppose this commercial will have to do for now! 

Friday, August 28, 2015: Day 970: A House for the Town

I'm always proud of the Disney that makes its way into my on campus housing, and this year, with extra space, a little bit of extra Disney appeared all over the place. I'm pretty darn proud of how it all turned out, especially our kitchen, which features what I like to call "The Kitchen Kabaret Pals." 

Sunday, September 27, 2015: Day 1000: One Thousand

How can I not be proud of the fact that my blog, which started out as a New Year's Resolution in 2013, hit 1000 posts this year. After all, this is the biggest milestone we'll hit in a long while, and the fact that I'm still doing this gives me hope and reassurance that something with Disney is indeed what I want to do with the rest of my life! 

Saturday, October 24, 2015: Day 1027: Talking to a Hero

How can I not have one of the greatest days of my life on this list?!? Talking to Colin O'Donoghue on the phone is EASILY one of the highlights of 2015 for me, and that means that the corresponding blog post HAS to be on this list! Just look at how happy I was! 

Sunday, November 15, 2015: Day 1049: Fandom Life

There are few posts that are a more accurate representation of my life than this one on being a part of a fandom. After all, between Star Wars, Disney, and Once Upon A Time, fandoms have pretty much taken over my life. But that's alright, because it's actually a pretty great life to have! 

Sunday, December 20, 2015: Day 1084: A New Favorite

The Force Awakens brought a ton of Star Wars into all of our lives this holiday season, and now I'm faced with the difficult task of picking a new favorite character. With so many options, such as Kylo Ren, BB-8, Finn, Rey, and Poe, there's a new character for every new and old Star Wars fan alike. Although, I think I stand with my original decision...Poe is my new favorite. Sorry everyone else, but the pilot wins again. 

Wednesday, October 7, 2015: Day 1010: The ABCs of ABC

One of the posts that I definitely had the most fun creating this half of 2015 was this post on the ABCs of ABC, featuring some of our favorite ABC shows, such as Once Upon A Time, How to Get Away with Murder, and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D! 

Despite the fact that the end of the year left me really far behind here on Everyday Disney, which resulted in me making up a ton of posts that I missed due to school work, there were certainly a few awesome posts, weren't there? As always, I can't wait to see what the next six months bring...and how many GIFs of Harrison Ford and Colin O'Donoghue somehow work their way in. 

Have a magical day!
