This Day in Disney History

July 1, 2002: Disney’s Beach Club Villas open at Walt Disney World.

Also located on Crescent Lake, these luxury villas have their own quiet pool area (although of course you can still use the amazing main pool shared by the Yacht and Beach Club Resorts), and have access to the boat transportation shared by the resorts on the lake. 

The villas are Disney Vacation Club properties and were essentially an add-on to the Yacht and Beach Club complex. If you want to spend the night in the lap of luxury, this is definitely the place to do it! The resort is so close to Epcot, that it’s within walking distance. It’s definitely fun to take advantage of getting to watch the fireworks at nightly, and you can get into the park via the International Gateway after a 10 minute or less walk! That walk may be longer than it appears if you’ve decided to have drinks around the World beforehand!

Disney Scented Candles?! Yes, Please!

I recently discovered this sweet little Etsy shop called Walter & Rosie that has handmade Disney inspired candles.

Some of my favorites include Pineapple Float, Soarin’, Yacht & Beach Club, and Main Street Bakery. The only hard part? Which one to choose!

I think they deserve some more of you lovely people to check out their adorable and magical candles!

Taylor Swift Surprises Fan with a Special Performance of 'Blank Space' at His Wedding

Taylor Swift Surprises Fan with a Special Performance of ‘Blank Space’ at His Wedding

Taylor Swift helped one very happy groom – who’s also been a longtime fan of the singer – fill his blank space Saturday night.
While celebrating their love in front of their friends and family, Max Singer and Kenya Smith were surprised by Swift with a stripped-down performance of “Blank Space” that she’s coordinated with Max’s sister Ali over the last few months.

Back in April, Ali reached out to the “Shake It Off” singer, 26, about the death of her and Max’s mother in a touching letter, telling Swift how her brother had wed his wife in the hospital so their mom wouldn’t miss out on one of the biggest days of her son’s life.

Max and his late mother even danced to the newly single singer’s hit “Blank Space” for their mother and son dance before she passed away.

“REMEMBER WHEN TAYLOR SWIFT CRASHED MY SISTER’S WEDDING,” Kenya’s sister Ashley excitedly tweeted.

Singer and Smith got married on Saturday at the Brant Beach Yacht Club in Brant Beach, New Jersey.
