Weekly Round Up: October 7

Field Station Dinosaurs (Mouse on the Mind)Well hello there! Happy Thursday … which, if we’re being honest, is an unusual day for me to be posting a link round up, but …

Things got a little exciting this past weekend. Not only did Dan from At Disney Again and I go on several adventures (photo proof at right), but we also officially learned that he scored a pretty sweet job, and he’ll be moving to Jersey in mid-December.

I know … it seems crazy that two WDW-fanatics would root themselves in North Jersey instead of South Florida. But that’s our new reality!

This week in Disney-fandom has been sort of depressing, to be honest. With Maelstrom and Kouzzina and The Backlot Tour all closing, there’s been a good amount of mourning going on. My beloved Estelle from This Happy Place Blog put the most interesting spin on the destabalizing effect all of these changes have had on us as a community.

But, on the plus side, the Yankee Candle shop in Liberty Square has finally made way for a Haunted Mansion-centric shop. I can’t wait to check it out in person.

What are you up to?
