Oh My Disney Event Recap

Last week Freddy and I went to an event at our local Disney store to celebrate the launch of the new Oh My Disney apparel collection! You may have seen me post about it on my Instagram stories, but I had been looking forward to this event for weeks! I first found out about it by reading the Oh My Disney blog (which is amazing if you've never read it) and I immediately called our Scottsdale Disney store to get the details. I obviously planned on bringing Freddy with me, even though he wasn't as stoked about it as I was...I bribed him with dessert lol. 

When we got there Sarah, a Disney store employee, greeted us and was so friendly and welcoming! She was wearing the prettiest Mary Poppins dress and gave us a run-down of how the night would go. There would be games, quizzes (what OMD is known for!), ear decorating and of course, shopping! We also put our names into a drawing to win 50% off one OMD collection item--I crossed my fingers and my toes! I immediately took off throughout the store--there was so much to look at and I wanted to see all of the amazing merch. It didn't take me long to find a dozen things I wanted, but before I could make any decisions it was time to decorate some Mickey ears while singing to "Zero to Hero" and "Part of Your World." 

After I finished my ears I got down to business (to defeat the Huns) and narrowed down the items I really wanted. Freddy found a Mickey pillow for our couch which I obviously couldn't say no to (how cute is this one for Christmas!), and he showed me this awesome Nick Wilde inspired tee that he could wear casually with jeans or shorts. I found a couple t-shirts I liked and was debating between this striped one or this red, cropped sweatshirt. I'm partial to stripes, but I thought the red would be more fun since it's a bold color. I took a poll on my Insta stories and the red one won by a landslide! I ordered it since they didn't have it in stock in my size, but I can't wait to get it in the mail and wear it with some high-waisted jeans or leggings. I also bought this polka dot scarf with hidden Minnie ears; it looks so cute tied around the neck and I also plan to tie it around my pony tails! Did I mention Freddy's name was drawn to win 50% off of one item?! He was the only guy there--I was pretty ecstatic about it!

The event got me even more excited for our upcoming Disneyland trip in October. Freddy and I go to the parks once a year (although we wish it was more!) and we usually go in the fall. We've made it an annual tradition for the past 6 years--almost as long as we've been together! It's something we enjoy doing together so much, and it truly is my happiest place on earth! As our trip gets closer I'll share with you guys my Disney outfits I'm bringing; I always like to bring multiple options depending on the weather and what mood I'm in that day. Be sure to check out the entire Oh My Disney Collection on the ShopDisney website; there really are so many wonderful thingamabobs you're bound to love!
