T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Packing For the WDW Parks – My Top 5 “Must Haves”

When you’re getting ready to leave your WDW Resort hotel room and head to the Disney Parks for the day, there are some items you will DEFINITELY want to make sure you bring along with you:

ponchos

PONCHOS are super essential – as it can (and likely will) rain while you’re at the Parks

AK Tree Adults

Sunscreen – apply it often, and be liberal with it. No one wants to get burned as red as Sebastian the crab on your first day at WDW. See how white me and my family are? Well – sunscreen helps us stay that way

WaterBottles

Water bottles – fill them up with water and ice before you head out, and be sure to drink a LOT and refill as needed when at the Parks – as that Florida sun can be brutal, and dehydration is no fun

baggies

Ziploc baggies in assorted sizes – they come in handy for a LOT of things, trust me

Photos MIckeyCAM

Multiple cameras – because you’ll want to capture all the great parts of this vacation, trust me. And yes that is a Mickey film camera – cool, right?

Moral of the story? Be prepared, and you will spend more time having fun on your WDW vacation

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – What Do You Get A 2 Year Old Disney Fan For His/Her Birthday?

My best friend’s darling little girl will be celebrating her 2nd birthday soon – and when I was thinking about what to get her, I knew it had to be something Disney-esque – because what 2 year old doesn’t love everything Disney?

    2bday pillow

I actually ordered this exact pillow for her – what little one wouldn’t want to cuddle up to Minnie (or Mickey, which I bought for my son) every night?

2bday book

Books are always a good idea, especially if you know the little guy or gal you’re buying for already has a lot of toys

2bday bed

If your little one is ready to move up from crib life, then why not order them a Disney toddler bed? Reasonably priced, and a great next step to becoming a “big kid”

2bday keyboard

I actually just ordered this for my son – and he loves it! The keys light up, and Mickey talks to them, too. Instrument gifts are great at this age – they love seeing what happens or what noises they can make by pressing various buttons2bday storage

Another idea for the kid who has a LOT of toys already – Disney-themed storage will not only help contain the clutter, but it will also help teach them the valuable lesson of cleaning up

Hopefully you find these ideas helpful – as I know it can be hard to shop for little ones who seemingly have it all already!

T.G.I.F Pic Of The Week – Celebrating TEN YEARS With My Love

Warning: This post is not strictly Disney related, and it is also a bit lovey-dovey. There. You’ve been warned. That being said, I couldn’t NOT post about this milestone though – as it’s not every day you celebrate TEN YEARS of togetherness with the man of your dreams

FB_IMG_1456752693383

We met in college, and have been inseperable ever since – even surviving over 2 years of it being a long distance relationship

FB_IMG_1456752764970

We got engaged in February 2009

FB_IMG_1456752912919

…And married in June 2010

FB_IMG_1456752925037

With a honeymoon at Walt Disney World (naturally!)

FB_IMG_1456752967653

But Disney isn’t the only place we go together – we’ve been on several cruises – because what’s better than lounging in the sun with a delicious cocktail? Not much, that’s for sure!

FB_IMG_1456752991124

Ok, so there were several trips to Disney – but what do you expect from a Disney Addict like me?

FB_IMG_1456753070876

And what would a family be without a dog? This little guy is not so little anymore – he’s almost 4 and weighs 80 pounds now! We named him Walter – after Mr. Disney, of course!

FB_IMG_1456753017021

This little guy has been our greatest achievement thus far, for sure – he amazes us every day!

FB_IMG_1456753032079

He’s now 16 months old, and he runs around and is so close to talking – and we cannot WAIT to introduce him to the magic that is Walt Disney World!

My man and I have been through a LOT in the past ten years – some of it bad, most of it good – and all of it memorable! I cannot wait to make many more decades worth of memories with this man – including trips to Walt Disney World (among other things, ha)

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Inside Space Mountain (WARNING – SPOILER ALERT!)

SM Outside

Ok, so if you don’t like to know how things work or to have the “magic” of a ride ruined for you, then you will probably NOT want to read on – but if you’re curious (like me!), then check out these photos of Space Mountain WITH THE LIGHTS ON:

SM5 SM2 SM4 SM3 SM1SM6

Weird, right? I hope I never have to see if while I’m on it – because that probably means someone got hurt or something – but I think it’s really interesting to see what is inside one of my favorite rides

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Coffee Tastes Better In A Disney Mug (It’s True…)

I am a big fan of coffee in the mornings (or afternoons, or anytime really!), and love tea and hot cocoa too – anything I can sip out of a big mug is a winner in my book – especially on a cold winter day here in Upstate NY! And why drink from a regular mug when I can drink out of a DISNEY mug?

20160208_103420 …Yep, I’m there with ya Mickey

20160208_103459

Because every princess needs a Disney Princess mug, right?

20160208_103535 …could not agree with you more, Ariel

20160208_103714

Love my “We’re All Mad Here” Alice In Wonderland Mug

20160208_103637

This little guy is a lot of fun, and makes me extra grateful for the existence of coffee!

20160208_103806

This vintage mason jar mug is amazing – takes me back to the days of childhood camping trips at Fort Wilderness!

TGIF – and here’s to staying warm with a nice hot beverage this winter!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney – As Modeled By The World’s Cutest Baby (Part 2)

As promised, here are some more pictures of my little man sporting some awesome Disney threads:

dclothes2 1

That smile – melts me every time

dclothes2 2

Mickey footie Pj’s are a must on cold winter nights

dclothes2 3

Visiting the Easter Bunny in his “Sunday Best” – which includes a Mickey tie, and an adorable dress shirt and suspenders with mouse flair, too

dclothes2 4

Ok, so technically he isn’t modeling any Disney clothes in this one – but he just loves playing with his stuffed Mickeys and friends when he visits my parents (most of them were mine, which technically makes them “vintage” – and which also makes me OLD!)

Dclothes2 5

Nothing like a little Monsters Inc onesie action (and a cuddle from dad is pretty good too!)

Dclothes2 6

Eating Mickey while wearing Mickey

Dclothes2 7

Normally I wouldn’t buy “seasonal” clothes as they can only wear them for a few weeks (if that!) but I just couldn’t say no to these Disney Christmas Pajamas

dclothes2 8

Not sure about his first set of Mickey Ears…

dclothes2 9

Apparently he also isn’t sure about this Mickey hoodie since he’s trying to remove it – but at least he is smiling?

The great part about Disney clothes for little ones is – all of it stuff is easy to get – most of the outfits were gifts, and places Wal-Mart, Target, online (amazon, Disneystore.com, etc) have a great selection to choose from

Even though I won’t be taking him to Walt Disney World for a few years, I like that I can still introduce him to all things Disney – including the clothes!

TGIF!
