Favorite Food Friday – Olaf Cupcake


Our Favorite Food This Week: Olaf Cupcakeolaf-cupcake-favorite-food-friday-disneydaybyday-pin

Price:  $5.59

Welcome to this week’s Favorite Food Friday where we share our favorite foods with our friends.  This week we return to Hollywood Studios, it’s been awhile since we have visited the park.   With all the construction in the park for both Star Wars and Toy Story, the park really feels about only half it’s normal size.   We stopped in at the ABC Commissary to pick up lunch and found an Olaf Cupcake and not of the carrot cake variety.   This was a chocolate cake with a marshmallow style frosting.   Overall it was very good, the cake was moist and the frosting was not overly sweet even with the large sugar crystals on the outside.   Give it a try next time you are in the parks.

The Story of Frozen

“The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic” is an all-new, original special in a first-of-its-kind collaboration with Lincoln Square Productions and Walt Disney Animation Studios. The special ventures behind-the-scenes for an exclusive look at the origins and evolution of the Academy Award®- winning film “Frozen,” now the biggest animated feature of all time.   A breathtaking and fantastic saga, the special tells the real story of making a modern movie based on a timeless tale that nearly overnight became a cultural touchstone for legions of fans.

Throughout the one-hour special, the audience will hear from “Frozen” stars Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, the directors, songwriters, producer and artists and chief creative officer John Lasseter –   the team who dreamed of making a cherished Hans Christian Andersen story into a big screen animated musical.   Viewers will take a journey to the beautiful Norwegian villages and landscapes that inspired the look of Arendelle – the fictional kingdom – and see images and footage from the research trips to Norway, Quebec and points beyond that helped create the film’s unforgettable look and feel.

             This special will also include some exciting announcements about the next chapter of “Frozen” and a never-before-seen preview of “Frozen” characters Anna, Elsa and Kristoff on an upcoming episode of ABC’s smash-hit “Once Upon a Time.”

 The program will culminate in an exclusive sneak peek at the action-packed comedy-adventure “Big Hero 6,” currently in production at Walt Disney Animation Studios –under wraps until now – as the team prepares their next big-screen epic.

This one-hour special will also feature exclusive insights and commentary from art director Mike Giaimo and talented artists from the art direction, animation and effects teams. The exclusive sneak peek of “Big Hero 6” is presented by the film’s directors, Don Hall and Chris Williams.

Frozen Music Inspiration

Frozen Music Inspiration


Frozen InspirationFrozen continues to be a huge success.   As with any movie, I love to hear about what happened behind the scenes including what inspired the music.   The below video was put together by The New York Times.   To think the music was inspired by a park in Brooklyn.   Take a look as  The Oscar-nominated composers Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez say that in some part, inspiration for the songs they wrote for “Frozen” came from Prospect Park in Brooklyn, New York.   Just shows you that inspiration can come from anywhere.    What are you inspired by?
