T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Oddball Favorites (Toddler Edition)

When preparing to take my 3 year old son to Walt Disney World for the first time, I had an idea of what he might like/dislike as far as rides, dining, and characters – and many of my instincts were spot on. But – there were some things I couldn’t have predicted that he would just love:

 

He was obsessed with the Huey/Dewey/Louie and Donald statues outside of our hotel room at the All Star Sports Resort – he insisted on visiting them every time we came or went

 

He really enjoyed watching the Star Wars show at Hollywood Studios – longest he has sat still in forever ha!

 

I was not prepared to ride Dumbo 4 times in a row – but it was a trip favorite for sure – he loved that he could “control” the up and down motion of the vehicle – and there was no line so it was easy to ride over and over!

 

Roasting marshmallows at the nightly hotel bonfire – I mean – ok, most kids love s’mores, but most aren’t patient enough to roast the marshmallows themselves, but he loved it, and of course enjoyed the end result, too!

A few things he did NOT love: “Real” characters – he was dying to meet Ariel, but when he went into the grotto and saw she was a real person (not a covered face like the rest) – he wanted NOTHING to do with her! Slinky Dog Dash, Mission – Space and Dinosaur were all rides he was definitely not on board with – although he said afterwards he liked it, but I could tell he was scared at the time!

It just goes to show – you gotta try everything, and you might just be surprised at what you like (that you maybe didn’t think you would!) Now only if I could use the same theory with my son on vegetables, hmm…

TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Headed To The Beach!

I may not have any Disney trips planned in the near future, but my family is going to be taking our first ever “family vacation” to Cape Cod this September! We will be renting a house and just relaxing and hopefully spending a TON of time on the BEACH – I can’t wait to see my son play in the sand and let him touch his feet in the ocean!

And of course – one cannot head to the beach without the proper DISNEY attire….

Beach Towel1 Beach towel2

I ordered these personalized beach towels for my son and my best friend’s daughter – because everyone needs their own beach towel (I almost ordered one for myself and now looking back am not sure why I didn’t…hmm)

BEach Rashguard

Better protect my little guy from the sun with one of these rash guard shirts – featuring Mickey Mouse!

Beach Nemo

Or perhaps something from the Finding Nemo swim collection would suit your little one?

Beach Ariel

Once you have the beach towel, it’s hard not to go all out with the matching swimsuit, bag, sandals, and sunglasses (don’t worry, it’s ok if you do – I don’t judge!)

Check out the Disney Store’s Swim Shop for more awesome summer looks!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney Baby Girl Styles That Will Make You Swoon!

This holiday weekend my husband and I are lucky enough to be traveling to Virginia to visit one of our closest couple friends – and their BRAND NEW BABY! She was born last month and I cannot WAIT to cuddle her and cover her in kisses! Oh, and as she grows, there will be much spoiling too – partially in the form of clothes – and how can I be expected to help myself when items this adorable exist?

BabyGirl4 BabyGirl3 BabyGirl2 BabyGirl 1

All of these are available at Target, which is great because I am in there multiple times a week anyway! Wal-mart also has tons of stuff, check out their Disney selection In Their Character Clothing Shop !

I will likely be buying all of these (and more!) for my friend’s baby – I mean who can resist them?

BabyGirl Jess

I may have gotten here these already for her baby shower – her favorite Disney movie is The Little Mermaid, so I figured these Disney Store finds would be appropriate. Can’t wait to see her little girl wearing them!

Happy Memorial Day, and TGIF!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Going “Under The Sea” With The Little Mermaid

There have been a lot of changes around Walt Disney World lately – many of them can be seen in the New Fantasyland, where you will find Ariel and her friends come to life on the ride “Under The Sea – Journey Of The Little Mermaid

Sign  

Eric Castle

  Shells

You enter the ride through Prince Eric’s Castle, and board a “shell” to take your journey

Ride Ariel

Kiss The Girl

Dancing FIsh

Where else but WDW can you ride through the sea and see mermaid, a prince, and dancing fish all in one place?

 

After you are done with your voyage, head over to Ariel’s Grotto and meet the Mermaid herself!

I personally cannot WAIT to check out this area and the ride when I head to WDW in December – The Little Mermaid is a classic from my childhood that I watched over and over – and seeing it come to life would be a dream come true!

TGIF!
