T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – My (Disney!) New Year’s Resolutions

2017 is rapidly coming to an end – and with a new year upon us, it’s customary for some to resolve to better themselves. I personally enjoy the idea of New Year’s Resolutions (even if I am not always the best at following through on them – oops!), and have decided that this year I will make them more fun by adding a bit of a Disney Twist to them! Since we are headed to Walt Disney World next fall, I have some things on my “Disney Resolutions” List to take care of before/during that time:

18 Res 1

Read This Book from cover to cover. A LOT has changed since the last time I went to Disney World – and I want to be sure I am up to date on all the changes and what to expect when we head there in September. It’s a daunting task – at 864 pages, it will certainly take some time to complete – but it’s very thorough and detailed, and I know I can get it done! If you’re looking for something a bit shorter then check out these Other Disney Guidebooks

18 res 2

Decide if we are going to Bring a Stroller to Disney World with us or not – seems like an easy decision, you either do or you don’t, right? But it’s a bit more involved than that for us – and I am hoping we can decide what to do and ultimately that that decision will help us make the most out of our trip!

Above all – my top “Disney New Years Resolution” is to prepare my little man as best I can for what will hopefully be the first of many amazing trips to Walt Disney World! I want to be well packed, well equipped, and well prepared to handle a toddler on a Disney World Vacation. Toddlers can be tricky – but I think I got this!

What about you – are you making any New Year’s Resolutions as we head into 2018?
TGIF!

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!

My Son’s Disney Education – The (REALLY) Early Months

My little guy is already going for the Disney toys - apparently we will be playing Disney Yahtzee tonight!

My little guy is already going for the Disney toys – apparently we will be playing Disney Yahtzee tonight!

There are few things I am adamant about, but waiting until my kid is old enough to enjoy a vacation (and not need a stroller!) is one of them – as I cannot fathom toting a stroller/diaper bag/toys/blankets etc around with me at Walt Disney World, so I am opting to wait until he is about 4 to take him to the Happiest Place On Earth (well, almost 4. 3 maybe – depending on how independent he is….). This means I have approximately 3.5 years to make sure he is schooled in all that is the World of Disney. May seem like a long time, but there’s a LOT TO LEARN!

So how do I teach? Well, I have several methods.

MOVIES: This is probably the most important, and one of the easiest ways to teach kids about Disney – is to show them the works of art that Walt himself and his team of animators and Imagineers created. They may not understand much of the story, but they will love the colors, animation, and songs

BOOKS: Reading to your kids is a great habit to get into, and my little guy loves hearing stories and seeing the pictures. Most Disney classic movies are also available in book form, and they are a great way to introduce them to the joys of reading!

SINGING: Some of you may be wary of this one as not everyone has choir perfect voices, but kids generally LOVE being sung to – even if you aren’t always pitch perfect. I like to sing Mary Poppins songs to my boy, and I help him “dance” to them too

TOYS: There are SO MANY Disney toys out there – they have them at almost every store – from the grocery store, to Wal-Mart and Target and drugstores too! Make sure you pay attention to the recommended ages, so that you can be sure your little one is enjoying the right kind of toy. Personally I love stuffed animals, and so does my son – Mickey’s ears and Tigger’s nose make the best chew toys

It’s NEVER too early to teach your kids about Disney – Or at least that’s what I keep telling myself anyway. At this rate he will be more than ready for his first (of what I am sure will be many) Disney World trip!
