T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – My Top Toddler (And Adult!) Disney Gift Picks

Well. Halloween is over, the costumes have been stashed away, the candy has been eaten (well – some of it anyway – trying to pace myself this year…) – and you know what THAT means – it’s time for CHRISTMAS. Now – don’t get all riled up – I am not suggesting you put up the tree or sing carols, but one thing you might want to start doing is SHOPPING – thinking about who you need to buy for and what they might like/want/need. And if you think it’s too early for that – here’s a bit of data for you – for those of us who are paid every other week at work, there are only like 3 or 4 paychecks left until Christmas (scary, right?)

So, now that Halloween is over, retailers are tempting us all with their Christmas displays, emails, and lists of “Top Holiday Gifts”. This inspired me to come up with my Top Disney Holiday Gift Picks:

Xmas17 9

For Toddlers – Personalized blankets, a light up wand that dispenses bubbles, Mickey play food set, or a Disney train – what toddler wouldn’t love unwrapping these? I know mine would love any (or all!) of them!

Xmas17 10

For Adults – A Mickey Crock Pot set, an adorable purse (with ears!), wine glasses (which are great but if you’re giving them to me they best be accompanied by some actual wine – cuz let’s face it – the holidays can be stressful!), and I don’t know about you but everyone’s parents/grandparents had one of those ceramic light up trees when I was a kid – I LOVE them and have always wanted one – this one with the Disney touches is amazing!

Everything above can be purchased Here. Happy Shopping!

TODAY IS THE DAY (For 2018 Disney World Bookings, That Is!)

Disney World Lovers, REJOICE – as today is the day many of you have been waiting for! Historically, Disney releases vacation package information/booking ability for the following year sometime in June, and this year it is June 20th (TODAY!)

The past few years this day hasn’t really meant much to me, as I wasn’t planning a Disney World vacation in the coming year – but since we are (finally!) Headed Back to WDW in 2018, I am VERY excited about this day indeed. Plus – I love to make lists and budgets and plan things – so I know I will be heading over to Disney World’s Website today to price out my vacations (plural – both real and the dream version where we stay a Deluxe Resort and have VIP Passes…hey, it’s fun to play pretend sometimes, right?)

Happy Booking!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Top 3 Non Ride Activities For Toddlers At The Magic Kingdom

 

I started this blog as a way to share experiences, tips, and reasons why Disney is the perfect place for adults – and I still fully believe that adults can have just as much (if not MORE) fun than kids at Walt Disney World – but now that I have a little one myself, my focus has shifted somewhat – from Disney for adults to Disney for the whole family – making sure vacationing at Disney World is worthwhile and fun for everyone – no matter what age. I still love the experiences I have had and will have as an adult WDW traveler – but now I need to make sure that my little guy is having the time of his life too! And let’s break it down – the reality is that if the kids are having fun, then the adults can relax and have fun, too!

If your kid(s) aren’t really into “rides”, then you may think Disney Parks are not the best place for you to vacation – well – you’re WRONG for sure – as there is SO much more to do and see there than just the rides! And even the younger ones who aren’t ready for/don’t like rides can still have a blast! Read on for my picks for top non ride activities at the Magic Kingdom for Toddlers:

Toddlernonride7toddlernonride8toddlernonride9

Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station: This fun filled area is located over by the train station in Storybook Circus, and it’s a circus-themed water play area – featuring mist, animals that spray water, and more! Your littler ones will love it so much that they won’t want to leave! It’s a perfect place to cool off on a hot Florida day (and SO many of them are so very hot!!)
Tip: bring along a spare set of clothes/swim diapers in case your little one gets a bit soaked

Swiss Family Treehouse: Adventureland is home to this attraction – where you embark on a walk through tour of the Robinson’s famous home – nestled high inside a towering tree. Not only will your toddlers love exploring the different rooms, and bonus – they might actually learn something in the process! The view from the top (116 steps UP to be exact!) is breathtaking, and makes you feel as though you are on top of the world!

Country Bear Jamboree: This is a classic attraction – a bunch of animatronic bears who sing and play instruments, and tell jokes, too! Ok – the attraction itself is a bit outdated, but it’s one that Walt himself helped create (not many of THOSE left these days!) and little kids just LOVE it – the bears, the music – it’s a winner for sure! Plus – it’s inside so it’s air conditioned, and you get to sit down for the length of the 16 minute show – and those are both huge parent wins in my book

Can’t wait to introduce my toddler to these awesome attractions – I just know he will love them!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week: FINALLY Headed Back To WDW!

My husband and I have been talking for a while now about the best time to bring our son to experience the Magic of Walt Disney World for the first time – and I think we finally landed on Fall 2018 – he will just have turned 4, which is when I went for the first time. To say I am excited is an understatement – not only is a vacation must needed, it’s MUCH wanted too! It’s been a while since I have been to Disney – and while I have been keeping up on the goings-on and such, I know that there will be some BIG changes in store for me – and here are the two I am most excited about:

SWland2SWland1

Star Wars Land – this is the largest ever single-themed land expansion to ever break ground at the Disney Parks, and the opening technically isn’t set to be until sometime in 2019, but I personally am keeping my fingers crossed for an early soft opening, or perhaps portions of it opening up before that so we can check it out while we are there! It will be a totally immersive experience, and you can even have the chance to step aboard the Millennium Falcon and pilot it – eek! How awesome!

Avatar2Avatar3

Pandora – World of Avatar – This land is slated to open later this month at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and it celebrated the “Magic Of Nature” – with a journey through the rainforest, and much more!

I can’t wait to check these both out – and to experience everything else Disney has to offer – both new and classic!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Christmas Treats (Disney Style!)

Last week I shared some of the amazing Christmas décor at the WDW Parks, and it got me to thinking – decorating for the holidays is a great tradition that the whole family can participate it, and another HUGE part of the holidays (at least in my house!) is the FOOD – cookies, special meals, hot cocoa by the fire, and so much more! Well – Disney goes all out when it comes to Holiday food too – check out some of the amazing treats you can find at WDW during the Christmas season:

Krispie Treats get some added festive décor

Popcorn buckets shaped like snowman Mickey are a bit pricey, but worth it!

And you can even grab cocoa and cookies (for free!) if you attend Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party

I love the creativity the cast members added to this gelato!

Here’s hoping your holiday prep and fun includes plenty of delicious treats, too!
