Down the Rabbit Hole

All the way back in January I posted an update about the end of ElecTRONica and the brand new concept of a "Mad T Party" in its place. Well, since then I have seen many updates and photos of the soon to be new night party in California Adventure! I'll share with you as much as I know :)

The Mad T Party stage in California Adventure!

In order to attend this Mad T Party, you must enter the mystical portal, also known as the rabbit hole! However, not just anyone can enter this portal, one must know the secret password. Each night a different password will be necessary to get past the two bouncers, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum! In order to find these passwords, you must search for the Hatters who are scattered around California Adventure. These Hatters will be easily noticeable due to their top hats and wacky colored outfits. Once spotted, you may receive an "invitation" which includes this secret password. Remember the password, tell Tweedle Dee or Tweedle Dum, and you're in!

What happens after you enter the rabbit hole?

The Mad T Party Band: The Mad T Party band includes many members that will provide the mad guests with many of their favorite dance tunes such as songs by Lady Gaga, P!nk, and Gwen Stefani. Each member is based off of one of the famous characters in Alice and Wonderland. The band includes the Mad Hatter as one of the lead singers, March Hare on the bass, Dormouse on the lead guitar, Caterpillar on the keyboard, Cheshire Cat on the drums, and every once in a while Alice will drop in throughout the night to sing as well! For a brief preview of the portal and the band, take a look at this video
Alice and the Mad Hatter
When the band isn't playing, the White Rabbit DJ will take over with his "mad" remixes! The DJ will be played by many DJs such as Jason Jass, Michael Paul, Adam Auburn, Mi$$y B, David Bullock, and Wendy Walker. Also throughout the night, the "Hottest Deck in Town" will be dancing on stage and with the guests!

Mad Arcade: ElecTRONica had the same arcade from the movie Tron, and now the Mad T Party has the Mad Arcade! This arcade includes many of the classic style arcade and carnival games, with a Mad T Party twist of course. Here you will be able to knock down the teeth of the Cheshire cat, shoot sugar cubes into wobbling teacups, quickly fill the Bandersnatch's tummy with treats, play Disney's new Kinect Disneyland Adventures, and many more! 

There will also be many different kinds of drinks with interesting flavors that glow in the dark, such as cotton candy strawberry punch. I have not been able to find much about the menu right now, but you can imagine all of the wacky and amazing flavors Disney has been able to create to go with this colorful and imaginative party!

What do you think? I think it will be a great new addition in place of ElecTRONica. I did love ElecTRONica and I'm sad to see it leave, but it will be nice to bring in something new and different to attract different crowds. 

The Mad T Party officially begins on June 15, 2012!

Disney Fairy Tale Wedding: Rapunzel

Week Eight Wedding Dress: Rapunzel

It's the final Disney fairy tale wedding dress from Alfred Angelo! The conclusion to this series of gorgeous and breathtaking dresses ends with the amazing and free-spirited Rapunzel.

Since Rapunzel is a relatively new princess, her first dress comes from the second collection of the Disney bridal gowns, while the second dress comes from a special edition group that includes Cinderella.

Collection Two

Alfred Angelo's "Rapunzel"

Designer Description: "Romantic, artful and confident defines this Rapunzel inspired gown. Subtle draped taffeta reminiscent of the twists and turns of her long braided hair play up the dreamy form fitting silhouette. A delicate floral sash with pearls, sequins, and crystals pays homage nature and the world she expresses through her artistry."

Style 214
My Opinion: I think this dress has a very simple elegance and beauty. It's one of my personal favorites because it isn't as flashy and out there like some of the previous dresses. I love the sparkly waist band and the fitted body before it drapes loosely to the ground. I love it! I'd wear it for my own wedding!

Special Edition

Designer Description: "Showcased at Kensington Palace in London for Rapunzel's Royal Celebration, this Special Edition gown reflects Rapunzel's unique, artistic, upbeat and confident personality. The gown features a one shoulder dropped waist and pleated bodice. Delicate three-dimensional satin petals and light catching sequins and crystals dance and float like the lanterns that carried her dreams."

Style 208

My Opinion: This isn't one of my favorites. I think it would look better in person. I like how it's unique and different and that the designer was inspired by the lanterns in the movie. I almost feel like it'd be better without the one shoulder strap...mainly because I think they look kind of like feathers. Still pretty, just not my first pick.

Disney Maiden/Bridesmaid

Style 502

Flower Girl/"Blossom"

Style 708

This concludes the Alfred Angelo Disney fairy tale wedding dress series! However, I have a little surprise...I recently discovered there are also amazing veils and jewelry that go with each princess and their dresses! I will share them with you soon!

Also, Alfred Angelo has a section of Disney prom dresses that are absolutely breathtaking. They don't have designated princesses that match with each dress, so I will be sorting them into different colors for each post (since putting them all in one post would be overwhelming). 

I hope you enjoyed the dresses! Which set was your favorite? I don't know if I could decide...I'm thinking maybe Cinderella, Aurora, or Rapunzel.

Singing, Secrets, & Robert Downey Jr.

It's officially summertime, which means it's the time of the year where we try and find fun and interesting things to do to pass the time. Today, my friend Holly and I made a Youtube video, and I decided to share it with you!

It's not a Disney update, just thought I'd post something random and whatnot. It has Disney songs in it, so that counts :D

We found it entertaining to make, so hopefully you find it entertaining as well :) Enjoy!

We're random...I know. 

Anyways, I'll be posting the final Disney wedding this weekend!

Disney Fairy Tale Wedding: The Princess and the Frog

Week Seven Wedding Dress: Tiana

This week's beautiful Disney wedding dress belongs to Tiana from Princess and the Frog! If you haven't seen this movie're missing out. It's absolutely adorable. It's totally worth being in the Disney princess series. It reminded me of how amazing those movies really are.

Also, this is our second to last Disney wedding dress from Alfred Angelo! Who will it be for the grand finale next week?

Collection One

Alfred Angelo's Tiana

Designer Description: "Honoring Tiana's independence and joie de vivre, this one-shoulder taffeta ball gown features dramatic ruched pick-ups, inspired by the grace of the water lily. The asymmetric draped bodice is embellished with beautiful beaded flowers, metallic embroidery and pearl accents."

Style 204
My Opinion: I think this dress is stunning in its own unique way. I love the one shoulder glittering strap and the bodice. The bottom half I think looks really unique especially in the back. I think the the very bottom trailing on the ground looks like a lily pad! I can see how this was inspired by Tiana. In my opinion it fits her character.

Collection Two

Designer Description: "Brides will dance to the beat of their heart in this Tiana inspired gown. Bold yet romantic, this form fitting, draped satin gown and its organza cloud of dreams skirt is topped off with a lace and crystal sweetheart neckline that sparkles and shines like the Evening Star!!! Both modern and nostalgic, a stylish choice for a magical transformation."

Style 212

My Opinion: I think I like this one more than the first collection, although the first collection reminds me more of Tiana's face character's gown. I love the mermaid-esque drop waist and the flowers/leaves in the tulle near the bottom. The bodice is gorgeous as well.

Disney Maiden:

Style 503
Flower Girl/Disney Blossom:

Syle 710

All of these dresses were designed by the incredible Alfred Angelo Company!!

Which is your favorite??

Five Confessions Friday: Day 6

Happy Disney Confessions Friday!! I want to take this moment and celebrate the fact that I only have to drive out to my campus one more day next week..and then I'm DONE!!! Woo!! Okay, on to the confessions....

Confession One: 

If I get rejected from the program when I apply in the Fall I will cry...but I do need to remember this attitude.

Confession Two:

Haha! I'll have to remember that when I have kids.

Confession Three:

Whenever I hear things like this I remind myself that it's just one person's personal experience. You will never know unless you try it yourself. I personally wouldn't work for the studio because of the location...Burbank is nasty.

Confession Four:

One of my friends LOVES this show. They'd be pretty legit if they were real people.

Confession Five:

My advice: Dump him. Dump him now.

I hope you enjoyed this week's round of confessions! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
Meanwhile, I shall be studying my butt off for finals next week, wish me luck!!

Disney Fairy Tale Wedding: Snow White

Week Six Wedding: Snow White

Hello friends! Welcome to the sixth Disney fairy tale wedding dress post! This week we shall be looking at the gorgeous gowns by Alfred Angelo based off of the iconic Disney princess, Snow White!

Collection One

Alfred Angelo's "Snow White"

Designer Description: "Capturing Snow White's gentle grace and beauty, and inspired by nature, this net-over-satin ball gown features a lace bodice of organza apple blossoms with shimmering rhinestone and crystal centers and a skirt with scattered blossom detail. A lovely satin sash and back bow make a graceful finish."

Syle 207
My Opinion: I think this dress is gorgeous! I really like the flowers and the and the skirt and pretty much, everything! Definitely one of my favorites so far. So beautiful.

Collection Two

Designer Description: "This tulle ball gown with its delicately draped satin bodice pays tribute to Snow White’s gentle grace and beauty. Hidden in the skirt's pickups are lace vine motifs and romantic flowers that seem to come straight from her enchanted forest."

Style 217

My Opinion: To be honest.....I think this is the worst gown out of the entire collection that we've looked at so far. I think the top half of the skirt is extremely awkward and out of place. I don't know what they were trying to emulate when they made looks nothing like Snow White's gown. It looks better in the model's picture, but the second one is just...I don't know. That's just my opinion.

Disney Bridesmaid:

Style 506

Snow White Flower Girl:

Alfred Angelo "Blossom" Style 702

Which one's you're favorite?
