This fantastic concept for the entrance to Jungle Cruise by Disney Legend Marc Davis wonderfully sets the stage for one of Disney’s most classic theme park attractions. Inspired by The African Queen and a True-Life Adventure documentary, Jungle Cruise takes guests down various rivers of the world via steamer boats, past wildlife, exotic flora, and, of course, the “Backside of Water.” Whether it’s the cringeworthy skippers with unlimited puns, or the atmosphere of intrigue and adventure, this opening-day attraction continues to delight guests to this day.
Gold details add an aura of elegance to just about any wedding cake, but when you sprinkle in delicate red roses you get a cake that exudes fairy tale romance. Inspired by the love and romance of the Disney classic,
Beauty and the Beast, I think Belle herself would approve of the floral that adds just the right touch of sophistication.
Where’s the movie in which two girls do everything together until one of them gets a boyfriend and everything changes. Except, no one gets a boyfriend and instead of everything changing, nothing changes and they move in together and decide two beds are too expensive and ten years down the line realise they’ve pretty much been dating since they were fifteen and get married and have the Disney themed wedding they had been planning together since they were five. Bonus points if they have their own dance routine.
One of Walt Disney’s earliest post-opening fantasies for Disneyland was to turn the pile of dirt known as Holiday Hill into a toboggan ride with snow. After making the film Third Man on the Mountain, which took place on Switzerland’s Matterhorn Mountain, Walt insisted to his team that this needed to be part of the Disneyland ’59 expansion. Upon opening, Matterhorn Bobsleds became the world’s first tubular steel coaster and Disneyland’s first true thrill ride. Through the years, the attraction has been plussed, most significantly in 1978 with the addition of the Abominable Snowman animatronic. The Matterhorn has gone on to become an iconic Disneyland classic, still delighting guests as they speed down the slopes and through the mountains icy caverns.
Summary – You
are the epitome of “always a bridesmaid, never a bride.” You think you know what love is, but
sometimes you can’t see what’s right in front of you.
Warnings – Alcohol, sexual
innuendos and some angst

Notes – This is the
first part of my fic for Stark Tower’s Movie Challenge. I’m sticking to the basic plot of 27 Dresses,
if you’ve seen the movie, but I’m adding a bit of twist to make it my own. The
wedding disaster in this part actually happened to friend of mine this summer so I thought
it would be fun to include some real wedding mishaps to make things
interesting. I hope you enjoy! As
always, your feedback is greatly appreciated!!
thank you to the lovely ladies at the Avengers Trash Tower for allowing me to
use them as my “brides!” This one is for you, Amberly @marvelingatthewonder!
standing at the back of the church, your white gown flowing around you as your
dad walked toward you. The smile on his
face and the tears in his eyes told you how much he loved you without him
having to say a word. He extended his
arm and you looped yours through, the other hand holding the bouquet of pale
pink calla lilies, cream colored roses, and minty grey succulents.
of the church opened and all of your friends and family rose as the string
quartet began playing Pachelbel’s Canon in D.
Your sister was a vision in the cream colored dress she had chosen to
wear as your maid of honor, her vibrant red hair complimented by the soft,
subtle hue. Your best friend, Wanda, was
right beside her in a beautiful shade of pink.
You had chosen to alternate your bridesmaids in shades of cream, pink,
and grey to match the bouquets you each held.
walked down the aisle, your eyes eventually found the reason why you were here
that day. Him. The love of your life. The man of your dreams. Steven Grant Rogers. He was absolutely dashing in his light grey
suit. He was smiling at you as though you
were the only woman in the world. Your
heart swelled along with the music as you grew nearer to him.
suddenly appeared in front of you waving her hands to get your attention. You were confused. Why would she be interrupting you wedding day

Some of the most evocative theme park concept art comes from the legendary Imagineer Herb Ryman, specifically his work on Disneyland’s New Orleans Square. In the piece above, Ryman has dreamt up a red-shelled candy shop for guests to pop into as they stroll the streets of the [little] Big Easy. From the period-attired denizens to the color choices, Ryman shows off New Orleans Square as a living, breathing corner of Disneyland.
I previously posted the creation process of the treasure boxes and the individual cards for my fiance’s best man and groomsman. Now that we got all the gifts I mailed them out Sunday and yesterday they both made it safe to their owners.
I’ve had the Donald and Goofy figures for a while so I gave them to the guys to let them know who they would represent in the wedding. Ryan wanted to give them zippos so I went on Etsy and commissioned the leather zippos with their personal initials and keyblade symbols from this shop. Then he found the “keyblades” on Amazon and wouldn’t let me ignore the pun.
I’m really happy with how they turned out and so were the guys. They both let me know how much they loved them and it made all those late hours and frustration totally worth it.
I’ve already sent out the bridesmaids boxes and once they start making it to their homes I’ll post them up here. Stay tuned!
Iterations of concept art for Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. The top piece, by Imagineer Dan Goozeé, reminds me of the American romanticist art of the mid-1800s. In that era, paintings by artists such as Thomas Moran and Albert Bierstadt commonly depicted scenery in the American West with bold colors and deep shadows.
