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?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Fairytales Really DO Come True!

Many of us Disney Loving Gals have always dreamt of getting married at one of the Disney Parks – the Castle as the backdrop, with Mickey to give you away and dance the night away with you…and of course, marrying your own version of Prince Charming!

While most of us realize this is just a dream that will likely never come true, it’s still fun to imagine! And of course, if you have the money (specifically – LOTS of it) – you can make it happen! At Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons they make dreams come true every day!

They even recently created a television series about it, and just last week they had a Holiday themed episode of it:

I was of course plastered to the screen the whole time – and couldn’t believe just how amazing everything was! Everything was themed and sparkled down to the tiniest detail – all with that Magical Disney Touch!

Aside from showing the weddings and narrating the stories of the couples – Disney also snuck in plenty of Park footage – showing how beautiful everything looks for the Holidays and basically making me wish I was there right this minute and BRB I will just be booking a trip to Disney World…strategic marketing by Disney isn’t it??

So – moral of the story is – if you want to get married at Disney – save your pennies, and maybe someday you can have a wedding as beautiful as these!

This Spring the series will air showing even more fabulous Disney Weddings – I can’t wait!

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!
