T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – STAR WARS LAND IS COMING!

Well – it’s been a rumor for a WHILE that Disney World was going to open a Star Wars Themed Land in one of their theme Parks – and the rumor has FINALLY been settled – it’s TRUE – Star Wars Land is coming in 2019!

Hollywood Studios will be home to this new land – and i can’t wait to see what it looks like. Characters, rides, attractions, food – it will all be amazing I’m sure!

Ever since Disney acquired Lucas Films there have been rumblings about Star Wars Land – and I personally am so excited to see how they bring it to life. Needless to say, I know where I will be heading in 2019 (better start saving now!)

vday1

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! Is it a cheesy Hallmark-y holiday? Yes. Do I love it anyway? YES – of course! Who wouldn’t love an excuse to eat TONS of chocolate? No woman I know, that’s for sure! If your valentine LOVES Disney as much as me, then you will want to gift her one of these top Disney Valentine’s Gifts:

vday2vday3

Jewelry is a classic Valentine’s gift – nothing says love like a little bling, am I right? Personally I have my eye on these Mickey stud earrings, but I also love the necklace (depicting one of the world’s most classic couples!)

Side Note – Men like getting jewelry too! Subtle and classy Mickey on a watch or Star wars cuff links are the perfect addition to that suit and tie

vday-7vday6

Apparel like this adorable apron or sweet shirt would be hits for your Disney loving gal – the quote on the shirt is the best (I wish it came in a print – I would frame it!)

For me it doesn’t get any better than a good Disney Mug – this would make me swoon!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – My Little Guy (And Why I’m Waiting To Take Him To Disney)

WARNING – this post isn’t totally Disney related – and may partly be an excuse to show off my adorable son…

toddler3toddler2toddler1

Come on – can you blame me? Look at how cute this kid is!

 

Seriously though – I started this blog a few years back, with the purpose of proving how great Walt Disney World is not only for kids, but for adults too. Over the years I have discussed the finer points of adult WDW vacations, and have been lucky enough to take several kid-free trips myself

But – times change, and since having my son, my focus has (understandably) shifted a bit – and he gets mostly all of my attention/time/effort. Which means I haven’t had as much time as I would have liked for writing blog posts, and it also means we haven’t been able to travel to Walt Disney World in quite some time either. Am I sad? Sure – a little – but honestly not that much – because as crazy as toddler life and mom life are – I wouldn’t trade them for anything

I used to think I would take my kid(s) to Walt Disney World just as soon as they figured out who Mickey Mouse was – and well…let’s just say – reality has kicked in, and I have come to the realization that we won’t be headed to the Happiest Place on Earth anytime soon. WHY not? Well – here are just a few reasons

1. MONEY – we are trying to move to a bigger house – as we are quickly outgrowing our “starter home” that we purchased almost 8 years ago now – and we want something bigger that we can really grow into, which means spending several thousand dollars on a Disney vacation isn’t exactly in the cards right now
2. Memories – Let’s be real here – my kid is only two – he will not remember anything from any trip we take right now, no matter how great it is – and that’s just the truth. He might remember some things for a while, but long term – he won’t remember much (if anything) from when he went to Disney at 2 years old
3. Packing Nightmares – we are in the midst of starting to potty train our boy – and any trip right now would just throw that completely off kilter. Which means – we would have to bring diapers. And a stroller. And a Pack n Play for him to sleep in…just. Too. Much. Stuff.
4. Toddler Life – We’ve all heard of the “Terrible Two’s” – and while it’s not all terrible, there are certainly things that toddlers can’t handle – like walking around all day in the hot sun at Disney, or meeting characters 5 times their size, or sitting through a show, or waiting in line, or waiting for ANYTHING – basically, just NO. So much no

There are other reasons why we will be holding off on introducing our son to the magic that is Disney World – but those are for sure the main ones. That all being said, I know plenty of people take toddlers to Disney every day and they have TONS of fun – so if you’re thinking of taking your family (toddler included!) to WDW – don’t let me discourage you! I just know that right now – we have other things to focus on, and want to take him when he is more independent and will be able to really remember it for years to come (we are aiming for taking him when he is 4 or 5 at this point)

Even though life may have changed a LOT once I became a mom, it doesn’t mean I stopped loving Disney – if anything, I love it MORE now – as I get to experience the characters, movies, toys, and fun through my son’s eyes – and there really isn’t anything better than that!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Accessories For The Apple Lover

Ok – I would like to preface this post by saying that I am a nerd, and am well aware of it, and accept it as reality – so that makes the fact that I am writing about Disney accessories for Apple devices Ok and normal (well, at least kind of anyway!)

I recently switched (back) to having an iphone, and I also just purchased an Apple watch – and I have to say, it’s pretty cool! I like all the things both devices can do, and I also love the fact that there are tons of ways to Disney-fy them:

minniecase

Love this – Minnie is so sassy isn’t she (reminds me of myself!). Check out the collection of official Disney Store phone cases here

minniespeaker

Speaking of Minnie – there are a ton of bluetooth speakers available out there that scream “DISNEY FAN!”

starwarsspeaker

Or if sparkles aren’t your thing, maybe something a bit more manly and Star-wars themed for your listening needs?

watchears

Obviously the first thing I did when setting up my Apple Watch was change the watch face to Mickey (it comes with it built right in!), and I am thinking the second thing I need to do is order this awesome watch case with Mickey ears!

ipadcase

This Ipad case is so cute that it makes me want an Ipad – well – maybe for my birthday, ha!

The point is – there are tons of ways to deck out your favorite devices with a Disney flair, to really personalize them and make them your own! They also make great gifts for the Disney lover in your life
