The Google Home Mini is a “smart device” that can play music, answer questions, control various other electronics and hardware in your home, and much, much more. And as if that wasn’t enough – Otterbox makes a Mickey mount for it

The mount can be purchased here, and the Google Home Mini can be purchased at a variety of online or physical retail stores – like Target, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy (to name a few!)

SERIOUSLY DISNEY – JUST TAKE MY MONEY! Or – maybe Santa will bring it for me this year – after all – I HAVE been EXTRA good…

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Mouth Watering Treats Await At Aristocrepes

I am always ALWAYS up for a new Disney World snack – the food at WDW is in fact the thing I am MOST excited about for our trip next month – and if you think that’s weird – then you obviously haven’t experienced all that Disney has to offer in the world of cuisine – they serve it ALL – all types and all styles of food, and the snacks are TO DIE FOR – seriously. I just discovered ANOTHER to add to my list – the bubble waffles at Aristocrepes in Disney Springs! Check out these beauties:

salted-caramel-bubble-waffle-aristocrepes-august-2018-1-403x600

strawberry-bubble-waffle-aristocrepes-august-2018-1-450x600

The bubble waffles come in strawberry and Salted caramel varieties, and the stand also sells sweet and savory crepes (hence the name!)

The ONE drawback to this spot is that it doesn’t open until 4pm on weekdays (noon on weekends so yay for that!). Check out all the info here

What about you – will you make the trip to Aristocrepes for a bubble waffle? I know I will be doing so next month!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – CHICKEN GUY Is Coming To Disney Springs!

kjdhfi4879748734Disney recently announced that Guy Fieri (of Food Network Fame – Diners Drive Ins and Dives anyone?) is opening a fast food restaurant at Disney Springs called Chicken Guy! The concept is “one of a kind all natural fresh chicken tenders” – so the menu will really focus on that, as well as sandwiches and a selection of over 20 house made sauces!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Rainforest Café – Yay Or Nay?

In preparation for our Disney World trip (coming up in a mere 58 days!!!), I have been doing a little “light” reading – The Unofficial Guide to Walt Disney World 2018 – and when I say light I really mean anything but – it’s a thick book full of mostly text, 864 pages jam packed full of anything and everything you need to know before heading to WDW (and some things you didn’t know you needed to know, too!)

Knowledge wise – a lot of what’s in the book is stuff I already know, but it’s great to brush up on the things that are new since the last time I went (almost 5 years ago eek!). One thing I came across in my reading that I am hoping to check out in person for the first time is the Rainforest Café

Ok – I know – it’s not exactly a “Disney original” restaurant, and the food is probably nothing special, etc etc – believe me, I have heard it all (mostly from my husband who has thus far refused to go, since there are so many more Disney unique places to dine), BUT – bottom line is, I think our son would LOVE IT:

Even the entrance is fun – all the trees and you can see the Elephant check in desk from outside

The bar is my favorite – I see many photo ops in my future involving these stools

review_rainforest_cafe_animal_kingdom_disney-35

A bar with animal seats, giant trees, animals everywhere – what’s not to love? Oh – and the kid’s menu items go along with the theme too – “Jusassic chicken tidbits”, “Gorilla grilled cheese delight”, “Lava Mud” dessert, and the list goes on

Ok so – maybe it’s a bit tacky, and unoriginal (since it is a chain restaurant), but – who cares? It looks fun, and I figure – we will go by it as we leave Animal Kingdom around lunch time, and if there’s not much of a wait, why not give it a go? It will be fun for the kid, and hey, they serve alcohol, so it will be fun for us adults too (kidding!)

What about you – have you tried either of the Disney World Rainforest Café locations? What did you think?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – It’s Hot Hot Hot – Keep Cool With These Disney Summer Items!

I recently wrote about all the amazing New DISNEY Stuff at TARGET – and I have to say, I am REALLY loving the POOL stuff right now. Could be because the temperature and humidity have been INSANE here lately, so much so that we basically LIVED in the pool last weekend just to escape the oppressive heat!

And what better way to enjoy the pool and outdoors than with amazing Disney stuff?

Loving these Disney pool inflatables – especially these drink holders!DisPool 1

It’s important to hydrate when you’re spending time outside in this heat – this Disney drink dispenser would be perfect for lemonade, ice water, juice for the kids, or even sangria (juice for the adults!)

 

You better head to your local Target ASAP to grab these amazing summer items – as they are already starting to clear them out for back to school time (eek!). I would be there right now buying them all for myself if my husband wouldn’t kill me – as we already have two GIANT pool floats and TONS of assorted other pool items….so as much as I would LOVE that Minnie Mouse float – must…restrain…myself (for now anyway…)

T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week – My Top Fastpass + Picks – Epcot

When I was a kid, I really did NOT care for Epcot. And back in the early 90’s – they certainly didn’t have as much to offer young ones as they do today! It bored me – the countries didn’t make any sense to me, and the whole “Future World” concept did NOT interest me at all. These days, I have grown to appreciate Epcot MUCH more – the futuristic theme is kitschy and fun, and the countries still aren’t my favorite – but their food (and drink!) options are much more appealing as an adult

As we prepare to take our first family trip to Walt Disney World, I try and imagine how my son will see Epcot – will he view it as boring like I did, or will he love it? I tend to think he will love it, as he kind of loves everything and is at that great age where he is in awe of everything new – but still, when it comes to picking Fastpasses for Epcot, I want to make sure I am choosing extra carefully, picking rides and attractions that will cultivate a love for Epcot at a young age. So – I spent a LOT of time thinking about these – my top Epcot Fastpass+ picks:

FP Epcot1

The Epcot Character Spot was a MUST HAVE on my Epcot Fastpass list – my son LOVES Mickey and pals – so the chance to meet them ALL in one spot is a necessity! When we were here years ago, it was the “fab five” – Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Pluto – and I am not sure all 5 are still here regularly – but no matter to us – we will love whoever is there for hugs and photos and autographs!

FP epcot2

Test Track – Now that the ride has been redesigned and you have the interactive queue where you design your car, I just know that this will be a home run with my son (plus, we love it too!)

FP Epcot 3

FP epcot 4

Spaceship Earth – This is a ride that used to have little to no standby wait time, but has grown largely in popularity recently, and has experienced wait times of 45-60 minutes. And since I love it – I want to make sure it’s one we are able to do – so it rounds out our fastpass list for Epcot!

I am pumped to be getting closer to our WDW trip – we are under 3 months now on our countdown! And I have been working diligently on planning the trip – making lists for packing, purchasing things here and there for the trip, and of course making Fastpass+ lists – check out my ones for Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, and stay tuned next week for my Animal Kingdom picks!

TGIF!
