Belle Painting ベルの絵画

I have been studying a lot lately, and I have been going a little bonkers with it, so I decided to take a break and paint my favourite Disney Princess.

I know it isn't very good, but I like it.

My Favourite Mickey Mouse Short 私の一番好きなミッキーマウスのショート

I am sure that you are aware that I love Mickey and all of his friends! Why else would I run a Disney blog? But, have I ever told you my favourite Mickey Mouse short?

It is called Mickey and the Seal. It was originally released in 1948. In this cartoon, Mickey visits the zoo for the day, and accidentally brings home a baby Seal! Of course, this makes Pluto angry!

Have you ever seen Mickey and the Seal? If you haven't, I suggest giving it a go some time!

Today is Mickey Mouse's birthday! It was 87 years ago that he, and Minnie Mouse, starred in Steamboat Willie! They are looking quite healthy for two 87 year olds!

So, to celebrate, over the next week, I will share with you some of my own special experiences and anecdotes about Mickey and Minnie! So, please come back to see them!

Today I would like to tell you that my dad actually shares his birthday with Mickey Mouse, so happy birthday to my dad too!

Disney Tsum Tsums in Australia オーストラリアにディズニーツムツム

Sometimes in Australia, we miss out on some cool Disney merchandise, and shipping it in from America or Japan is too expensive. Luckily, Target Australia has started stocking Tsum Tsums!

I am very excited about this. I am a big fan of the Line game on my phone, and my planner and letter set have a Tsum Tsum design. So, now that I can buy the Tsum Tsums, I am very happy!

I bought the Medium size Stitch, and the Mini Eeyore. They were better priced than I was expecting (these sorts of things seem to be very expensive in Australia). The Medium was $15, and the Mini was $6.

Also pictured is Eeyore dressed as a Reindeer. He matches my Minnie Snowman, Mickey Santa and Donald Christmas Tree!

Hong Kong Disneyland T-Shirt! 香港ディズニーランドのtシャツ!

I went to visit my family the other day, and my mum had a nice surprise for me. One of her work friends was going through his closet, and came across a shirt that he had never worn before. He wanted to find someone who would enjoy it, so mum took it for me. It was...

... this Hong Kong Disneyland T-Shirt! I have never been to HK Disneyland before, so this is my first piece of merchandise from there! I am very happy with it. Now, I need to decide whether or not to wear it or display it...

Frozen Holiday Wish 2015 フローズンホリデーウィッシュ2015

The Christmas Season is upon us at Walt Disney World, and of course the other Disney parks.
Yesterday, for the first time of the season, during the Frozen Holiday Wish 2015 show, Elsa lit up Cinderella Castle with her magic, bringing ice and snow to the guests.

If you, like me, could not attend, but want to watch, please watch the video below and consider supporting the channel : )

D23 Expo Japan 2015 日本のD23エキスポ2015

Right now, in Maihama, Japan (where Tokyo Disney Resort is located), it is the second day of the D23 Expo Japan 2015!!! This is a three day event, catering specifically to Japanese fans. 

According to the official website (and I want to apologise now for any mistakes I may have made while reading the Japanese), over the course of the event, fans who attend will be learning more about Tokyo Disney Resort, Disney Broadway, dubbing Disney movies into Japanese, the line up for upcoming Disney movies, and a presentation of music from the Lion King, presented by the Shiki Theatrical Company.

Of course, there will be special merchandise available for those lucky enough to be able to attend. 

And, on the 3rd of this month, there was a special Kingdom Hearts event, called the Kingdom Hearts Premium Theatre, with new information, exclusive merchandise, and a live piano performance!

Over the next few days, I will be checking up on YouTube for any footage for these events, so please stay tuned!

Alice Through the Looking Glass アリススルー・ザ・ルッキング・グラス

Disney has released a short trailer about the upcoming sequel to Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland'. I am very excited to see 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' in the future. I think that Johnny Depp makes a very good Mad Hatter!

Here is the trailer!

Disney Magic Castle: My Happy Life 2 ディズニーマジックキャッスルマイハッピーライフ2

Today, Disney Magic Castle: My Happy Life 2 has been released! I really enjoyed the first one, and I wanted to play the second one too, as early as possible. So, instead of waiting for it to be released in English here in Australia, I am currently downloading the Japanese version on my 3DS. I am very much looking forward to playing it! When I have had a bit of time to play it through, I will write and post a review!

Happy Anniversary Stitch's Place!!! Stitch's Place、誕生日おめでとう!

Today is the 1 year anniversary of this blog! I can't believe that it has been a year since I started. I have enjoyed writing this blog, talking with some of my readers, and I feel that my Japanese has improved since I started writing it in Japanese too!

I am thinking about doing a giveaway, so that I can share the celebration with you! Please comment if you would be interested!

New Disney POP Vinyls!!! 新しいディズニーポップビニール!

Yesterday I went and had a look in Zing with my husband. We have a friend's birthday coming up, so we were looking for gifts. We managed to find him something nice, and I managed to find a few things for myself too!

I bought the 6 inch Baymax POP (it was finally restocked), and the Regina POP (the Evil Queen from Once Upon a Time). I have wanted Baymax for a long time, so I was happy to buy him.

My New Disney Corner 新しいディズニーコーナー。

As you may know, a few months ago, my husband and I moved to a new apartment. The apartment we live in now is much bigger than the old one, and my Disney Corner got upgraded to a Disney Wardrobe!!!

I finally finished setting up, and I thought that you may like to see some photos! I love looking at photos of Disney collections!

Disney Autographs ディズニーのサイン

Collecting character autographs at the parks is a very enjoyable past time, for children and adults! Going around to meet the characters, get photos with them, and get their autograph is just as important to some people as rides, shows and parades. I certainly enjoy getting the autographs of my favourite characters- I had just as much fun doing this last year as I did when I was 5 years old.

One easy way to keep all of your autographs together and safe is in an autograph book, which you can buy at the parks. However, if you don't want to pay extra money to buy a special book, any kind of notebook is good!

Some people like to get more creative though, and have photo frames, t-shirts and other such things signed. It is all up to you!

I have two autograph books. One of them is from my trip to Disneyland, California in 1995, and the other is from Tokyo Disney Resort, 2014. 

I have very fond memories of gathering these autographs. When I was five, Jafar held my book out of reach, and I had to jump to get it back. Mickey Mouse gave me a big hug and an eskimo kiss when I got his signature. Last year, I was waiting to get Goofy and Max's signatures at Port Discovery, and I was a little flustered- there was a lot of confident people getting seen, and I kept waiting. The attendant took my hand and escorted me to Goofy and Max. Once I was finished, Max kissed me on the cheek!

Now I can go through my autograph books with fond memories!

Do you collect autographs? How do you keep them?

Disney Little Library Book and CD ディズニーリトルライブレリーブックアンドCD

On Sunday I went to my parents house for lunch, and my mum gave me these. It turns out that she had been collecting them when they came out in one of the Australian newspapers every week. There are 14 story books in all, and each of them comes with a CD that tells the story.

These will be very good for when I have kids I think!

Once Upon A Time ワンスアポンアタイム。

Does anyone else like to watch Once Upon a Time? My cousin and I really like the show. 

I partly like it because I love Disney, but it is also because I love fairy tales and stories! My favourite character in the show is Belle, but I also really like the Mad Hatter, Jefferson. A lot of the characters are very interesting, and I like watching them all interact with each other.

The new season is starting soon, and I am really looking forward to watching it with my cousin.



来月に新しいシーズンを始めて、 従妹と見たいです。

Today Was the Speech Contest 今日はスピーチコンテストがありました。

Today I participated in the 46th annual NSW Japanese Speech Contest. It was a lot of fun, but I was very nervous. I received a participation award, which I plan to hang and put in my study to keep me motivated to keep studying! And, one of my friends received the third prize medal!

My sister thinks that I should enter again next year. I think that I might. I really enjoyed today, and I would love another opportunity to demonstrate my skill.

My teachers have been very supportive of me. When I was leaving the contest at the end of the day, one of my teachers actually chased me down, calling out my name, in order to congratulate me and tell me that I did well. I really appreciate it, and I don't know if I can ever show them just how much. I suppose all that I can really do is continue to do my best.

Tokyo DisneySea 15th Anniversary 東京ディズニーシー15周年

From April 15, 2016 to March 17, 2017, Tokyo DisneySea will be celebrating it's 15th anniversary!!! The celebration is to be called "The Year of Wishes". There will be two special shows, "Crystal Wishes Journey" at Mediterranean Harbour, and a new version of "Big Band Beat". Character costumes, and special merchandise will be covered with crystals!

Hotel Miracosta is also celebrating their 15th anniversary, with special decorations and menu items!

The most exciting thing about all of this is that I will be there to experience some of the magic! I have already been to the 40th anniversary of Disneyland, California, and the 30th anniversary of Tokyo Disneyland, so this will be a nice thing to keep up the tradition.

2016年4月15日から2017年3月17日まで東京ディズニーシーは15周年「イヤーオブウィッシュ」です。スペシャルショーを二つがあります。メディテレーニアンハーバーで「クリスタル・ウィッシュ・ジャーニー」 があるでブロードウェイ・ミュージックシアターで「ビッグバンドベート」があります。キャラクタコスチュームとスペシャルグッズはクリスタルがあります。

Alice in Wonderland Stamps ふしぎの国のアリスのスタンプ。

When I went to pick up my parcel recently, I bought some Alice in Wonderland stamps! They were being sold to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the story! I am a huge Alice in Wonderland fan (even having an Alice in Wonderland themed wedding), so I bought them!

A Package From YesAsia! イエスアジアのパッケージ!

Today I received a package from YesAsia, and inside were three Disney Fan magazines that I ordered! I wanted to make a post about these ones, as they are very special, and I am very excited to have them.

One of them is a standard Disney Fan Issue, with Ariel on the front cover. 

One of them is the 300th issue of Disney Fan magazine, and it is their 25th anniversary! 

Inside this magazine was a special photo book, and it is so pretty!

And the other is a special edition, dedicated to Disneyland, California's Diamond Celebration! 

It contains a fold out map of the parks at California, and extra post cards (they all come with post cards).

I cannot wait to read them all!

D23 Expo 2015 2015年のD23エクスポ。

Friday the 14th of August, at 9am California time, marks the beginning of this year's D23 Expo. 

For those of you who are unsure, the D23 Expo is a special convention, specifically about Disney, held every two years! There, Disney makes special announcements, honour new Disney Legends, sell special merchandise, and have special shows and demonstrations.

I have never been to one before, as they are never held in Australia, but they seem fantastic. Japan has a mini D23 Expo coming up in November! I want to go, but I don't have the money this year.

 I will be keeping an eye out for special news, so expect a lot of new posts from me over the next few days!

Meeting Minnie Mouse  ミニーマウスに会いました。

When Luke and I went to Tokyo Disney Resort, we met a lot of characters. I have already shown you Pluto and Mickey Mouse. Now, I would like to show you Minnie! We met her in the Lost River Delta area of DisneySea.

I was wearing my Disneyland California 40th Anniversary jumper underneath my jacket, so I had to show Minnie. I think she liked it!

Have you met Minnie too? Please show me your photos!

I Have Entered a Speech Contest... 私はスピーチコンテストを入りました。。。

Hi everyone!

Next month, my uni is hosting a Japanese language speech contest, and I have entered. I don't think that I will win, but it will be a good experience, and all participants will receive a certificate.

My topic is 'Studying Japanese with Mickey and Friends', I will talk about how I use Disney to help me learn Japanese. I am still writing the speech, and I hope that it will reflect my meaning and emotion well.

Birthday Gifts 誕生日のプレゼント

On Wednesday, before uni, I had coffee with a friend, and because it was my birthday last week, she gave me some presents!


She gave me a Frozen mat, a book called "Disney War", an Alice in Wonderland card, Olaf pyjamas and a Minnie Mouse T-Shirt!

Do you get lots of Disney for your birthday?

アナと雪の女王のマットと「Disney War」の本とふしぎの国のアリスのカードとオラフのルームウイアとミニーt-シャツをもらいました!

New Daiso Disney Goods

The other day I went into Daiso because I needed some new notebooks for uni, and I came out with a little bit more than that.


I bought two notebooks, one of Minnie, and one of Daisy. Their silhouettes are inside.

A Mickey and Minnie memo pad! They are in black and white.
A black and white Mickey and Minnie box. I will put uni work in it.

A Mickey Mouse bag hook. It looks like Mickey's pants!

They are all very pretty, and were only $2.80 each!

Tokyo Disneyland Souvenir Medallions 東京ディズニーランドのスーベニアメダリオン

This is about half of what I ended up buying...
A fun, and affordable souvenir that you can buy at Tokyo Disneyland are souvenir medallions (pressed coins). You can find machines that dispense them all throughout the resort, and there were many different designs to pick from!

 As I was there during the 30th anniversary of Tokyo Disney Resort, I was able to buy some with special designs for that, and I was also able to get Valentine's Day ones as it was February! Also, many of them have the year on them, so it is a very good souvenir.

You can buy a collector's album to keep them in if you plan on buying a lot of them! 

Be careful though! Because they are so cheap, you may end up spending $60 on them, like me...

Sorcerer Mickey in Disney Tsum Tsum ディズニーツムツムの中にソーサラーミッキー

For those of you who play Disney's Tsum Tsum mobile game, I want to let you know that, for the month of August, in Australia at least, Sorcerer Mickey is available in the Premium box. When you use him, Fantasia music plays instead of the regular music, and you get to tap the screen three times to set off fireworks and remove Tsum Tsums! I was lucky, and managed to get him in my second Premium box.

Good luck!!!

New Disney Leggings

Two days ago it was my birthday. I turned 25. It was a good day, even though I had to go to university and tutoring... I didn't really do much as I was feeling quite tired.

My cousin Laura gave me these really nice Disney leggings! I am very happy, as the only Disney pants I owned before were pyjama pants. And, they are Nylon free, which is good, because I am allergic to Nylon!

I can't decide which one is my favourite!

Quick Update Number 2

Hello everyone! I am still around, but our internet provider made a mistake with our internet, and we won't be getting it until later in this week. I just wanted to let you know that I will keep working on this blog once we get it back!

In more Disney related news, I am going to see Inside Out with my husband tomorrow, and I am really looking forward to it! I think that Sadness will be my favourite character, and I bought a POP! Vinyl of her recently.

Quick Update

Hello everyone. I am just posting quickly to let you know that I am still around, and I am doing quite well. I have just moved to a new (and nicer) apartment, and I do not have internet access for another week or so.

I am in the process of setting up my new Disney Corner, so please keep an eye out for photos!

Disneyland Diamond Celebration Live Stream

For those of you who are interesting in checking it at Disneyland but can't be there, why don't you watch the livestream? It will run for the entirety of the event, and you can watch the special events!

There are three special shows, and here are the times (in California time). 

8:50pm- Paint the Night Parade
9:30pm- Disneyland Forever Fireworks
10:15pm- World of Colour


Disney Diamond Celebration Soon to Begin!!!

We are so close to the beginning of the Disney Diamond Celebration! In fact, in Sydney it will begin at 11pm tonight! Officially it begins on May 22, 6am in California.

Today, dedicated to the work of all of the Disneyland Cast Members, the Diamond Celebration medallion that has been mounted onto Sleeping Beauty Castle was revealed. Below is a video of that dedication, from the Attractions Magazine YouTube Channel!

I am going to be glued to my computer later tonight (and tomorrow) to see as much as I possibly can. 

I have only been to Disneyland, Anaheim, once in my life. I was 5 years old, and I remember having a wonderful time. We were there over Christmas, and being Australian, I had never experienced snow before this. That was 20 years ago. I still have a jumper that my mum bought (that I now wear) that celebrates 40 years of Disneyland. It is amazing how much time has gone by, and while I don't remember everything about it, the fact that I was there for the 40th anniversary is amazing to me.

A New Place to Buy Disney Pop Vinyls 新しいところでディズニーポップビニールを買います。

Yesterday Luke and I went to a new store that just opened up over the weekend. It's name is Zing. It is a shop where you can buy a lot of really nerdy things (I think I will be buying a lot of birthday gifts there in the future), but I was most looking forward to the Pop Vinyls! I collect Disney Pop Vinyls, and my cousin, who has this shop where she lives, told me that they sold tonnes of them. She wasn't wrong.

I was overwhelmed by the choice. They had almost an entire wall dedicated to them, with many different Disney ones. I was anticipating that I would spend money, because I had just found out that I got a good mark on a test, and wanted to celebrate. 

So, I bought the above. I got Eve from Wall-E, Scrump from Lilo & Stitch, and the Dancing Groot bobble head (bobble heads creep me out a little, but I got it anyway, because I love Groot), from Guardians of the Galaxy, which is technically Disney.

I am going to continue to shop there. The service was good, and the prices were reasonable. Check them out if you want to! And, in the future, I might write a blog post dedicated to Disney Pop Vinyls!

Disney Cruises

I am sick today, so I have spent the majority of it watching Disney videos on YouTube. That always helps to cheer me up.

Today I seem to be obsessed with the Disney Cruise Line. I really hope that one day I can enjoy a Disney Cruise myself. Of course, that would require me travelling to America, and getting over my motion sickness, but maybe one day it will happen.

Here is a cute video I came across on the Disney Parks channel on YouTube that can show you a little bit more about what you might see on such a cruise.

Darling Disney Duds: Disney Diamond Celebration

This edition of Darling Disney Duds features the outfits that Mickey and Minnie Mouse will be wearing in honour of Disneyland's 60th anniversary celebrations!

Mickey and Minnie in their Diamond Celebration Outfits.
Minnie mouse is wearing a nice red dress, with matching shoes and bow, of course. She has light blue accents around her sleeves and waist, which match Mickey's vest quite nicely. He too is wearing some red, with his pants and bow tie a matching colour. And, he has a dark blue jacket on to complete the look.

I think that they look very nice together, and the outfits are suitably special enough for such a wonderful occasion!

If only I could go and see this for myself.

私の新しいポーチです。 My New Pouch.






The other day I received a new pouch! It was a free gift that came in a UniBEARsity book that I bought online. It is designed after Pudding, Minnie Mouse's creation. The front is her face, the back has a zipper on it, and it is attached to a line, so that you can wear it on your bag or your belt, and still be able to use it.

It is small, so it is perfect for carrying change in it. At the moment, my USB is inside because it keeps it safe! And, when I go back to Tokyo Disney, I may even use it to keep my ticket in!

When I do go back to Japan next year, I am going to buy the Pudding bear, and lots of outfits for her!
