The Bloggie Awards 7/24/10 - 7/30/10

Hope you guys have had a great week. I've been sweltering here (which should have been obvious by Wednesday post) but air is now on here and things are looking cool.

But you didn't come here to hear me talk about being came to find out what I thought were some of the best articles of the week from fellow here we go!

5. DisneyShawn has been doing some FABULOUS stuff lately. Lots of little nuggets. The first one (because there are definitely more than one I liked this week) is about the Castle Couture Shop in Fantasyland and details that I had no idea even existed in there. (Make sure to look for my boys Gus and Jaq). It just amazes me the real intricate details that go into things sometimes, even though I know Disney is famous for their details.

4. Orlando Theme Park News is starting a great series looking at the pavilions around World Showcase. Today, their stop is Norway. You may just learn something. (I seem to be on a Norway kick lately. lol!)

3. Ever thought about picking a pearl over in the Japan pavilion? Zannaland talks about why you should! (I need to do this one day!)

2. It's not a blog round up without talking about food...and we've gotten to number 2 and so far, no food. (Unless you want to eat the shell the pearl comes out of...but I'm thinking that's frowned upon.) Look no further than The Disney Food Blog's review of one of my favorites, Whispering Canyon Cafe over at the Wilderness Lodge! (Drooling about there just thinking about it....)

1. Marceline, MO is where Walt called home for a time...and the Touring Plans Blog has a nice piece about taking a visit there. This is a place I think every Disney fan should visit. Matter of fact, I will get there soon. It's so close to me right now, it would be heresy if I didn't get there and stood where Walt stood. I just have to figure out when it will be. I have found out through some research that the better months to go is in the warmer months. The place kinda shuts down in the winter. Make sure you read this article though if you have any tiny desire of going to visit.

Now I told you I had liked lots more article from The DisneyShawn Blog and I do have one more to share. (Though I think you should read the whole week's stuff from him. Lots of hidden gems!) Tomorrowland is my favorite land in all of the Magic Kingdom...and what I love the most is the Palm Trees that are located sorta near Space Mountain. Shawn has a great explanation for why they are there...and I for sure had an ah-ha moment! (As it would be called on Lou's show!)

So that's gonna do it for this week! Make sure to check out some of these great articles because they really are chock full of good info! And I'll see you guys on Sunday with the News and Rumors of the week!
