Foodie Friday: Disney-Inspired Snack

It’s been one of those weeks. You know the ones I mean…where every day seems like Monday? I won’t bore you with the details, except that I’m pretty sure the Snow Queen is holding Spring hostage until I go see and review Frozen! To celebrate Foodie Friday, I’m linking up with the Favorite Food Friday blog hop hosted by Disney Day by Day, and sharing my perfect Disney-inspired snack: Nothing fancy, but everything warm and wonderful: French Press coffee (in a Disney press, of course!) and a piece of English Toffee I brought home from the Main Street Confectionery at the Magic Kingdom. Does it get any better than this on another “it’s how cold out there??” January afternoon? Thanks for joining me for Foodie Friday – what’s your favorite way to bring Disney comfort food home?

First Morning Traditions at Walt Disney World

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 3rd stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month, we’re writing about our family traditions at Disney. Some family traditions just happen. You’re making breakfast one morning and the kids are horrified because you used the wrong pan for the cinnamon rolls. (In her defense, my mother had no idea there was meaning attached to the pan she used and I, being a slacker teenager, hadn’t done the dishes the night before like I was supposed to!) Then there are the traditions you consciously create. Last year was our first trip to Disney, but we’ve travelled extensively with our crew. I know how wiped out I on the first day of vacation, after spending the previous day in airports or in the car. I need to do something to kick off...
