The Perfect Disney Christmas Gift

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Yellow. Enjoy the ride as we share with you what we consider the perfect Disney Christmas gift. When I started thinking about how to introduce a little Disney magic into this Christmas, the obvious answer was – unfortunately – out of reach: I am pretty sure if the kids came downstairs on Christmas morning and saw nothing but this, they’d still declare it Best Christmas Present EVER. Actually, I think if we did take a Christmas trip to Walt Disney World, we’d come home from the Christmas Vigil Mass on December 24 to an envelope from Santa Claus with plane tickets and a note saying “Made a mistake – your presents got misdelivered! Pick them up #8221; Feigning as much confusion as the kids we’d head over to the airport (where a friend would be waiting out of sight with our...

Bringing the Haunted Mansion Home for Halloween

I just had to share this project – not that I have time to make it, but it’s amazing nonetheless! A 3-D model of the Haunted Mansion at Liberty Square, made entirely of paper: Ray Keim, creator of these incredible paper models, is also a member of the Halloween Horror Nights design team at Universal Orlando. He has also created free paper model design kits for the Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square: and the Phantom Manor at Disneyland Paris: Check out more of Ray Keim’s paper models – including Leota and Master Gracey’s tombstones at Haunted Dimensions. As an added bonus, Disney Parks published instructions for the Hitchhiking Ghosts! What do you think – would you (or maybe the kids) attempt one of these projects? I’d love to do an entire paper village of these models! Pin It

Face Paint Scars

With Halloween two weeks from today, I’ve got transformations on the mind! I start asking the kids in early September what they want to be for Halloween. I remember so many years when I was a kid, when I wouldn’t make a decision until a few days before and my mother scrambling to put something together for me. There’s a family tradition I’m happy to break! This year, Princess Cinderella will return to the family, but that’s the extent of the Disney theming (unless you count the haunted mansion-inspired birthday cake!) Alex has decided to go undead this year, which would be great had I not gotten rid of all the jeans with holes in them a few months ago! Oh well, I’m sure we’ll find something appropriate. The face paint, however, kinda had me stumped. Knowing Alex, he’ll want to go as gruesome as possible. Then I found...
