we're back from a wonderful time at disneyland!
i miss the old tomorrowland futuristic style + kitchen of the future. the innoventions attraction is so outdated, but 2 employees told me they're building a new "house of the future" within the building that will be ready next summer. it's going to be called "the connected house"
it's a small world is my favorite attraction. it is sooo darling, especially with my mod*tot + mod*pop to share it. the light display was spectacular. every 15 minutes the exterior was transformed. here's a video link
