It's important to stay abreast of the latest news, but while others are all aflutter trending over the marriage of Brangelina I'm all about dogs in costumes, particularly dogs in Disney costumes, at Walt Disney World. That's pretty much my three favorite things, all in one place.

For the first time ever, 101 costumed canines strutted their stuff through Disney's Magic Kingdom to show their #DisneySide.

A green carpet was rolled out on Mainstreet U.S.A. for this first ever early morning event.

There was a special "Show Your Disney Side" costume contest before Goofy lead a PAW-some group of pups around a portion of the Magic Kingdom. Goofy was assisted by Lily, a Labrador-Catahoula pup who was born with a #DisneySide, a Disney back-side that is! Lily's has the perfect Mickey Mouse shaped spot on her back!

This was a private event for the families of the 101 dogs chosen through the online photo contest. Dogs were costumed to show their Disney side including a range of pirates, Princesses, and even Cruella DeVille.

The dogs raised the "woof" with a doggie themed dance party featuring some favorite Disney dogs such as Pluto and Bolt.

Actor John O'Hurley and his dogs attended the event and John will host the Animal Planet Disney Side Edition of "America's Cutest Pet", scheduled to air Oct. 18.
