Weekly Round Up: September 11

Maurice’s Cottage, New Fantasyland (Mouse on the Mind)
Maurice’s Cottage in New Fantasyland

Good morning, Mouse fans! I’m writing this very. very. early in the morning in the terminal at MCO. It’s bitter sweet: I’m sad to be leaving my happy place, but I have so many many many wonderful things to share with you all in the coming weeks!

I’m wrapping up four really amazing days at Walt Disney World with my husband, and I think the best part of my whole long weekend was hanging out with my wonderful Orlando-area friends.

But getting a preview of Belle and Maurice’s cottage ranks pretty high up there with some of the most awe-inspiring Disney moments of my life. I’ll be sharing lots of details–including how YOU can get a preview if you’re visiting the Parks any time soon–in the coming days, so follow us on Facebook or Twitter or subscribe to our RSS feed.

Until then, what are you looking forward to in New Fantasyland??
