Tour of the $8 Million New Fantasyland “Tangled” Bathroom in Disney’s Magic Kingdom

The film “Tangled” spent six years in production at a cost that has been estimated at $260 million. The recently opened Tangled bathrooms in New Fantasyland only set the company back $8 million, at least that was the ‘word on the street’ from a local contractor I know.  I don’t know if these powder rooms are worth $8 million but they sure are beautiful! Here’s a tour…

This is the part where I refrain from cracking a joke about Rapunzel letting something golden down in the bathroom right?

Here’s a shot looking over to the Columbia Harbor House. We entered the bathroom area by way of the Haunted Mansion. It’s odd to see The Yankee Trader out in the middle of nowhere and I had to get my bearings straight for a few seconds.

Rumor is that the old bathrooms by Peter Pan are going to be transformed into stroller parking.

Disney Photobomb Friday – Beach Club Booty Biter

Disney Photobomb Beach Club Resort

Looking back through my Disney pics on Facebook and I came across this photo that made me LOL. This shot was taken right outside Disney’s Beach Club Resort near the lake. Love the two girls photobombing in the background. One looks like she’s trying to take a bite out of my friend’s behind.

I’m sure I’m not the only one this has happened to. If you’ve ever been photobombed at Disney, I’d love to feature your funny photo here! Send your best photobombed pics to amanda@disneyeveryday.com to be featured in a future “Photobomb Friday” post.

2013 Disney Princess Half Marathon ReCap – What it Looks Like When You Just Run for Fun

disney princess half marathon running at disney amanda tinneySUB 3 HOURS!

That was the goal that repeatedly ‘ran’ through my brain during the weeks leading up to the 2013 Disney Princess Half Marathon.

Running at Disney” and I were going to celebrate our 2 year anniversary of running Disney’s Princess Half Marathon together and Disney was celebrating it’s 5th Anniversary of the event. 7,000 princesses ran it in 2009 and this year there were to be 27,000 princesses running it.  We were just two tiny sparkles in a pool of diamonds about to fill the Princess Half Marathon crown.

I had my doubts. My half marathon time has always hovered around the 3:20 – 3:30 mark and Sarah was going to try and get me through the race in under three hours. Pshaw! Was all I could think.  And then…the heat advisories came. Just like they had come a month before at the 2013 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. PR’s (Personal Records) are not set during record heat and humidity. Imagine my relief when I heard Sarah say, “It’s gonna be too hot and humid. Let’s just run it for fun.”  Whew!

What does a runDisney race look like when you just run it for fun? It’s looks a lil like this…

Bus ride to the start. No nerves when you’re chatting up runDisney consultant Jeff Galloway and  his wife Barbara.

Having the best time of our lives getting one of the worst times of our lives!…and we wouldn’t have had it ANY OTHER WAY!

SUCCESS! And the only tears shed on the course were at the end when Sarah and I crossed the finish line hand in hand and then embraced to bask in the glow of what we had just accomplished. It was just one year prior that Sarah had stepped across the finish line of her very first Half Marathon…the 2012 Disney Princess Half. And here we were doing it all over again and loving every minute of it.
