Bake Your Mother Something Sweet From Disney This Mother’s Day!

Cake_gif_happy_birthday_disney_sleeping_beauty_fairy_green

Mother’s day is less than a week away – but if you haven’t picked out that perfect gift for your mom yet, don’t worry – because if there’s one things moms all over the world love, its something made by hand for them from their offspring. Oh, and another thing that most moms and women love – desserts. So if you make a dessert for your mom, you’re pretty much in the running for a “kid of the year” award – and why not incorporate a little Disney Magic in there while you’re at it?

Check out the dessert section of the Magical Recipes website for sweet treats to make for mom straight from the Disney Parks and Resorts! Not sure which recipe Mom would like? Then just check out the Chocolate lovers section of recipes – because I haven’t met a woman ever who didn’t like a chocolate dessert!

Hopefully yours will turn out a bit better than Sleeping Beauty’s Birthday cake did…but either way I bet Mom will LOVE it!

Disney For Adults – FAQ

MickeyBar

When people find out how much of a Disney lover I am, and how often I vacation at Walt Disney World, I am often met with skepticism, disbelief, and QUESTIONS – I am always prepared for all three, and it led me to realize that many people probably have the same inquiries, so here are some Frequently Asked Questions about Disney World for adults:

“Isn’t Walt Disney World Just For Kids?” – HECK NO! That’s really the reason behind me starting this blog, is to help adults realize that WDW has a lot to offer for those of ALL ages, and that everyone will have fun here, not just kids

“Isn’t A Walt Disney World vacation expensive?” – It can be, but if you make smart choices like staying in a Disney Value Resort, sharing meals (as Disney portions can be HUGE!), keeping your souvenir budget in check, and going at “off” times when the prices are lower, you can save money and make it more of a value

“What is there for adults to do at Walt Disney World?” – A LOT! From spas, to golf courses, to 5 star meals, to boat rentals, to watersports, to behind the scenes tours, to special events, to shopping, swimming….let’s just say this – you will never be bored at WDW

“Where can I stay at Walt Disney World?” – They have a ton of amazing Resorts – ranging in price and ameneties, you can stay in anything from a basic room to a campground cabin to an RV to a 3 bedroom suite. Disney does a great job with theming on these resorts too, so if you’re really into New Orleans, or the Caribbean, or Disney Animation – there are Resorts themed to all of those and more!

“What’s the food like at Walt Disney World?” – Theme Park food gets a bad rap, and for a good reason – it’s mostly overpriced, bad tasting, and bad for you. Well, rest assured that WDW food is absolutely NOTHING like your typical Theme Park cuisine – they do it all here: sushi, steak, salads, buffets, dishes from around the World, and much more. It’s one of my favorite parts of Disney – is trying new and different restaurants and food

“Why should I go to Walt Disney World?” – Why NOT? It is a magical place, with something for everyone – rides, food, shows, attractions, animals, characters, parades, live music, drinks, dancing, laughter – need I say more?

Get Rid Of Those “Monday Blues” With A Disney Drink!

drinks

I have mentioned that recreating Disney Recipes at home can be a great way to reminisce about a great Disney vacation, and it’s also a great way to get pumped for your next WDW trip too!

Sometimes though, after a long hard day at work, you just need to kick back, relax, and enjoy an adult beverage – and luckily, Disney has you covered there too – they serve up tons of amazing cocktails in the Parks and Resorts, and now you can recreate them at home – thanks to magicalrecipes.net – where they have a HUGE LIST of all kinds of Disney drinks with detailed recipes

Personally, I could go for a Key Lime Martini or maybe a Malibu Macaw right about now…

So the next time you are feeling down, or maybe you’re having a “case of the Mondays” kind of day, I suggest you whip up a Disney Drink – guaranteed to cure whatever ails you!

Packing Light For Disney

MickeyMin PackingPacking for a Disney World vacation can be a daunting task, there are a lot of things you will want to bring along (and if I were you, I recommend you bring along all the items on my Disney Survival Kit list), BUT, I know how important it can also be to pack light, no one wants to lug around a huge suitcase, and in our case, we have had some issues with airlines losing luggage, and try not to check bags when we travel

So what do we bring? Our rule of thumb is generally to bring “one of everything” – one pair of sneakers, one pair of jeans, one hoodie, one nice outfit, one pair of dressier shoes, etc. Yeah, you might have to re-wear something, and worse comes to worse if you spill something on your one pair of jeans, all Disney Resorts have laundry facilities on site

Another thing we do to save space is to wear the big stuff – the hoodie, jeans, and sneakers tend to take up the most space in the suitcase, so we make sure we wear those while traveling

When it comes to souvenirs, we make sure we are buying small items that we will definitely be able to fit into our bags. Our fave items? Disney pins, playing cards, pens, shot glasses, and postcards are all compact, easy to pack, fun items to bring back as trip momentos. Oh, and don’t forget about the best souvenir of all, the trip photos, which luckily don’t take up any space at all when stored in the camera!

My motto for packing is “When in doubt, leave it out!” which may seem silly, but if you find you arrive at WDW and you forgot to pack something, the Resort gift shops and nearby stores have almost anything you could need, so don’t worry – pack the essentials and get going!
