Disney Roots!

Lizzie and Tyler wrote and asked us to do a honeymoon session with them! We photographed their session all around Downtown Disney and did our best to avoid the huge construction walls as Disney Springs takes shape! Downtown Disney is maybe my favorite session location, because when you shoot there in the morning, n o  o n e is there. At all. It’s amazing. :)

Lizzie is so sweet and bubbly and I think we talked nonstop about Disney things from the second we said hello until we hugged goodbye! She’s a true kindred spirit and I so hope we get to meet up for future sessions. :) I especially love Lizzie because I’m pretty convinced she’s a direct relative of Danielle Fischel (Topanga from Boy Meets World!) and just refused to admit it.

Nate and I are a little late to the Breaking Bad game and are finally starting the last season tonight. As soon as we heard Tyler is a professional chemist, well, let’s just say we’ll be doing our best to stay on his good side. ;)

I totally missed this in person but laughed out loud when I spotted it while editing Nate’s photos! :)

I told them to “be the dragon,” and this happened. FAVORITE! :)

If you’re already familiar with Live365 and all the Disney goodness it can bring into your life, stop reading here and we’ll catch ya tomorrow.  ;) This is for my Disney loving friends who aren’t familiar with this little game-changer.

I don’t know about you, but nothing can trigger Disney nostalgia and frighteningly specific memories for me quite like background tracks from Walt Disney World. I can be completely stressed from being away from home for a month, but I hear a 30 minute Fantasyland background track, and I’m back on the balcony at Pinnochio’s Village Haus with my Sarah Bess relaxing after a long day of crazy guests. When “Surrey with the Fringe on Top” or “Flitterin'” comes on from Main Street, I can practically smell the popcorn. If I hear just the right Epcot track at just the right time, I just start crying for no reason. Happy sad. I feel nostalgic, homesick, and a little giddy all at the same time.

The problem with these beautiful tracks is that you can’t just buy them on Amazon. They never play on Pandora. Enter Live365!

Live365 is an online radio- Pandora without the algorithms, if you will. This can be good and bad, because I for one, love “thumbs downing” a song on Pandora and never having to hear it again. The amount of Disney stations alone this site offers is crazy, so it’s taken me a while to cultivate my favorites to share with y’all:

MouseWorld Radio 1http://www.live365.com/stations/torg0
MouseWorld Radio 2 : http://www.live365.com/stations/cardinalsplayers
MouseWorld Radio 3 : http://www.live365.com/stations/dpr2
Reedy Creek Radio : http://www.live365.com/stations/chickenhair

Admittedly, I mainly listen to these for hours on end while I blog and edit. I open the four stations above in Google Chrome so each tab notifies me what the other stations are playing. 90% of the time, I find myself listening to MouseWorld Radio 2, which seems to mainly play background tracks to Main Street USA, Tomorrowland, Epcot, and a whole lot of the Electrical Light Parade, though this may just be a coincidence to when I’m tuning in. MouseWorld Radio 1 and Reedy Creek Radio are good for when I’m in the mood to hear the monorail spiel, or background track to Splash Mountain and other rides, but there always seems to be some cross-over tracks between the MouseWorld stations.

Just like Pandora, you can listen to these stations for free, but you’ll get ads every 2-3 tracks. I was so annoyed by the frequency of commercials that I think I bought my subscription after only listening for an hour. *I* think it’s worth it, but again, this is something I use daily.

Well, I guess that’s it for my dirty little Disney music secret. Are you a Live365 fan? Have you found a better way that works for you finding your favorite Disney music?
