Bringing Disney Home

My Disney Must-Haves

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 talking about our Disney Must-Haves: Things We Can’t Leave Disney Without. So – what can’t I possibly leave without? Pictures. Lots of them. When we visited in 2010, I didn’t take nearly enough pictures, and I goofed up and deleted almost all of our Animal Kingdom photos. On our next trip, I want to come home with plenty of blog fodder! Mickey Ears. I’ve never actually had a pair of Mickey ears. Not even as a kid growing up in Southern California! A new Cookbook. Food is one of those things that take me back to happy places and happy times. I can’t necessarily hop a plane on a Friday afternoon just because I feel like going to dinner at...

Mother’s Day, Disney Style

Welcome to the first stop aboard Magical Blogorail Yellow. Enjoy the ride  as we share some Disney Indulgences for Mother’s Day. At first, I thought that I would write this post about some of the over-the-top luxurious resorts and dining experiences Disney has to offer. But the more I thought about it, and about Mother’s Day in general, I realized those didn’t quite hit the mark. If Mother’s Day is about celebrating motherhood….well, let’s just say that white linen tablecloths aren’t a big part of my motherhood experience! Instead, I’d like to share with you how I would love to spend Mother’s Day, Disney style. To start with, I want to wake up on Mother’s Day morning at the Polynesian Resort. Perhaps Bill and the kids have even let me sleep in past 6 as they snuck downstairs to procure the best coffee at Walt Disney World! We’ll take the...

Favorite Land & Attraction in Magic Kingdom

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the final stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month we’re talking about our favorite lands in the Magic Kingdom, and our favorite attraction in that land. This is a tough one! My initial thought was Fantasyland – I’ve always been a sucker for princesses and happily-ever-after! But then there’s Main St. USA (does that count as a Land?). I’ve always wanted to slow down and wander up and down Main St. and never have! As a teenager visiting Disneyland, Main St. was something you hurried through on your way to Space Mountain. Visiting Walt Disney World as a parent, Main St. was something we hurried through on the way to the rest of the park! Then of course there’s Liberty Square and the Haunted Mansion….which I simply cannot get...

The “Must-Pack” List for a Disney Vacation

Welcome to those of you joining me from Tips from the Disney Diva and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail. I’m excited to have the chance to join the Peach loop this month! We’re discussing our “must-pack” items for a Disney vacation. Maybe it’s strange to say that the topic excited me – after all, most people don’t get worked up over their packing lists! But for me, those lists are an important part of the anticipation. I work out the details and try to anticipate any problems long before I travel. By the time I actually head to the airport I’m pretty confident that I can just sit back and relax. My “must-pack” list is actually broken down into a few categories: Health and Safety Aloe – I’m pretty fair skinned. I don’t tan, I go straight to burn –...

Spring Break Survival Guide: Tips for Group Travel

Welcome to those of you joining me from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse and those of you just hopping aboard. I am the 4th stop on our Magical Blogorail. This month we’re offering our Spring Break Survival Guide. Spring break can be a great time to make some Disney memories. The weather is beautiful – 70s and 80s – and the rainy season usually hasn’t started yet. And of course, the kids have a week off school so a vacation won’t interfere with their next math test. It’s a great time to get the extended family together, or even travel with a group of friends. Vacationing with a group heightens the whole experience, intensifying the fun. It can also intensify the stress. With some solid planning, you can minimize the stress of traveling with a large group. Here are my best tips for group travel: Communication is essential. Before you plan a group...
