Reasons I Love Disney A-Z..."V"

Violet (The Incredibles) - AKA Invisigirl, this is ironic because she really just wants to be invisible at school-sometimes nothing is worse than being fourteen.  By the end of the movie she has a new found confidence along with a better understanding of how to use her invisibility and force field powers. She also has a lot more respect for her parents and their past super hero status.
Villains - Just as much as everyone has a favorite Disney Princess or Hero, everyone has a favorite Disney Villain, and Disney knows how to do villains. You already know my favorite is Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, but there are so many other great ones, Syndrome, Shere Kahn, Ursula, Cruella De Ville, Lady Tremaine. The bottom line is as much as we love the princesses and the heroes, they wouldn't be possible if there weren't any villains.
Vinylmation - Vinylmation is the latest trading craze at Disney, similar to pin trading Vinylmation trading is encouraged. Vinylmation comes in 1.5", 3" and 9" sizes and they are shaped like Mickey but decorated very differently. I believe when they first came out in 2008 they were a surprise when you open the box, but now you can purchase specific ones. I was not so sure about them in the beginning but they are growing on me now. I have yet to see them in person, I will make my final decision when I see them in the park.  The Star Wars and Disney Villains series in particular look cute online.
Voyage of the Little Mermaid - This 15 minute mini-musical uses puppets, live performers and video clips to tell Ariel's story. The Ursula puppet is 12 feet tall and 10 feet wide!!  The songs include some of my favorites from the movie like "Under the Sea" and "Part of Your World" and Ursula even sings "Poor Unfortunate Souls".
Victoria & Albert's - The ultimate in fine dining at Walt Disney World, Victoria & Albert's is located in the Grand Floridian Resort. This restaurant has earned a AAA Five Diamond Rating for 10 years in a row, and the dress code is formal. All ladies receive a long stem rose, you listen to live harp music while you dine in the Victorian style dining room. There is a also a choice of dining at the Chef's Table, this experience will take approximately three hours, you will be served seven courses for up to 10 people in your party.
Via Napoli - The taste of Southern Italy including pizza cooked in wood burning ovens.  It's located in the Italy Pavilion in EPCOT and their menu includes pasta, spinach lasagna, steak salad, gelato and tiramisu. If you like real Italian food you won't be disappointed.
