Kilimanjaro Safaris on (Not So) Wordless Wednesday

It’s Wednesday – already! Over at Focused on the Magic, Wednesday is always (almost) wordless, of course. This week’s theme is “Family #8221; It was a tough one for me. With 4 kids, a mix of boys and girls, and two adults, it’s hard to come up with something everybody genuinely loves. And then I remembered Kilimanjaro Safaris! As we’re planning our dining reservations for our return to disney trip, we each chose one restaurant that was a must-do. As we were tossing around ideas, one of the kids piped up with “The Safari Breakfast!” Instant agreement, all the way around the table. We simply could not go to Walt Disney World without doing the Safari Breakfast. It begins with the early 8:00 seating of Donald’s Safari Breakfast at Tusker House in Disney’s Animal Kingdom: That’s me pre-coffee by the way, trying to keep those two little boys from completely...

Preparing for a Disney Vacation with Kids with Autism

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month we’re sharing our tips for preparing for a Disney vacation. Specifically, I’d like to share my tips for preparing a child with autism for a Disney vacation. (For those of you with typically developing kids – don’t leave! Most of the techniques that are essential for ASD kids also work really well with neurotypical ones too.) As a Mom, I would love to surprise my kids with a trip to Walt Disney World. I daydream about packing them all in the car under false pretenses, only to casually remark as we get on the Interstate “Oh – yeah, our meeting is in Orlando. Mickey and Minnie are expecting #8221; Unfortunately, in real life that kind of stunt might not go...

Sidonie Smith One Woman Disney Medley

I know, I’ve been quiet a lot lately. But today I’ve got someone to introduce to you who is anything but quiet: Sidonie Smith is an accomplished singer, actress, and musician – and as much of a Disney geek as you and me. To celebrate the launch of her One Woman Disney Medley on YouTube, she’s agreed to join us today to answer a few questions and share some of her work: Sidonie, welcome to Return to Disney! Thanks for joining me. You’re an accomplished actress, singer, and musician. Have you ever performed in a Disney production? Yes– two! I had the pleasure of being a cast member at Walt Disney World! I performed in Disney’s Animal Kingdom in a show called “Safari Celebration”. When I moved to Europe, I got to play my absolute dream role– the title role in Disney’s AIDA. The whole show took place outside on the...

Welcome Home

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail. Welcome Home I’m not sure there are any more powerful words than “Welcome #8221; And I’ll be completely honest, that little phrase both flew right over my head when we checked into the Port Orleans Riverside, and caught my attention at the same time. In my defense, it was 9:00 at night, we hadn’t had dinner, and were exhausted. I just wanted food and bed. I didn’t realize it at the time, but that phrase was a hint of things to come. For me, home is a place where things work. You can relax and be your best self, because you’re not constantly trying to keep things from falling apart. Home is clean and orderly, well-maintained, and has plenty to do – and...
