I'm Going to the D23 Expo!

So excited for this! I have never in life been to California or Disneyland so this is all new to me! I want to write a really long post talking about my plans and what I hope to see and do but unlike Walt Disney World I have NO clue what I am looking forward to.

So in an attempt to get you more involved in the Lair: What is DLR like? What are the best rides? Where are the best places to eat? Where can a girl get a drink? ;-) And any other info you can give me!

I'm here! I promise!

I'm sorry you guys! I haven't written in a LONG time. I owe you an apology. I miss writing and will hopefully have some posts up soon! In the mean time....

How are you?
Anyone take any Disney trips lately?

Tell me all about it and I'll enter you in a drawing for something nice! ;-)

My Favorite Places: Wilderness Lodge

Hey guys and dolls! I wanted to do a new piece I call my favorite places.

I want to start off with some place I actually went to a few time but never really paid any attention to until this trip.

I have actually been to Wilderness Lodge a few times. Never spent the night although I'd love to change that.This past trip I had a chance to have a drink at the Territory Lounge and then walk around the resort pool at night.

Ladies and gents it was BEAUTIFUL! It was so calm and serene. I could have sat out there all night. The architecture combined with the lighting made you feel like you were in the middle of no where and yet  you're seconds away from Magic Kingdom.  The waterfall feature of the pool sounded so amazing. Every trickle is just sings in the peaceful night air (Laugh at me now!).

Any way my point is if you get a chance on one of your less crazy Disney trips stop by. After a busy day of park hopping sit down in the Territory Lounge. Order a nice adult beverage. And after your drink take in the atmosphere. You won't regret taking the time to look around.

Thank you Betsy for the awesome pic! @floridamingo

LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean the Video Game

May 10 2011 LEGO came out with a new video game. And luckily for Disney and Pirates fans it is a Pirates of the Caribbean video game. Now you might think that the game will be about the fourth movie: On Stranger Tides. But get this sports fans! You can play through ALL 4 MOVIES! I declare that awesome.

Below are some screenshots. Afterwards I'll give you the details about the game that I know... Savvy? 

The game is a lot of fun and like most LEGO games it is for all levels of players. You can play single or multi-player and it is across most (I want to say all) gaming platforms. The best part of the game to me are the short films in between game play. The LEGO characters reenact scenes from the films! They don't talk. More of a grunt. But it is still really funny to watch.

Have you guys played the game yet? What so you think of it?

A Bit of Mousekeeping

Hey all! I seem to be abandoning you more and more. I'm sorry! I will get back to writing actual posts today but first there are a few things I need to talk to you about.

First the Tiara Talk Podcast is having a contest that is going on RIGHT NOW! I was able to interview Tammy and talk to her about the site but with my schedule being all wonky I won't get the interview on the blog until after the contest is over. (I am very sad about this!) So please go over there and enter.

Next I have interviews floating about that I need to check up on. I hope to get more interesting people to talk to you about their Disney experiences and lives. Frankly I'd like to talk to each and every one of you one day!

Also I will be doing another giveaway very soon. I bought 3 Star Wars Weekends pins for you guys and cannot wait for you to win them! They are really nice and some are even "rare". It'll be exciting and I'll let you know all about it soon!

Lastly from June 17 until August 1 I will be in graduate school. It is a 6 week intensive and makes doing anything but school very difficult. I will try to write. I promise but if I fall off the grid please forgive me.

Now that that's all taken care of I can do the writing thing again! By the way if there is anything you guys want to see in the Lair or any topic you want to read more about please let me know! And as always follow me on twitter (@dragynally) and fan the Lair on facebook (The Dragyn's Lair) if you want the latest updates!
