Disney Trip Report: Oct 2013 (Day 1)

Day 1: October 10, 2013 We decided to drive down for our visit to see Mickey Mouse. I was still in school getting my bachelor’s at Old Dominion University and had class the evening we were leaving for our trip.

How I Begin My Disney Parks Planning

So, I’m getting ready to start planning our next Disney Parks vacation to Walt Disney World Resort this winter. I’ve never been so excited to say “winter is coming.” As of right now, our financial situation will not be where is needs to be to do this but I’m going to be very optimistic and pray that things turn out the way we’d like them to.

Why I Chose to Take My Toddler to Disney

In the Fall of 2013, I was planning a big vacation to Walt Disney Resort. This trip was to include my husband, both of our moms and my daughter. She was getting ready to turn two years old a few weeks before we were leaving for our trip. It seemed like everyone I spoke to, about our exciting journey ahead of us, looked at me with a confused looked followed by something very.. Read More

First Time Round The Block

They say the first time’s the hardest.  I really don’t think this could possibly get any easier.  This past September, I applied for the Disney Parks Moms Panel for the first time.  For those of you not familiar with it, it’s a very coveted spot to be in a group of individuals who have the very important task of answering questions pertaining to their Disney Parks area of expertise (See http://disneyparksmomspanel.disney.go.com for more..

Now, let’s talk about cake.   We typically do cupcakes around here so we decided to make them from the Duff Tie-Dye cake mix. Originally, I thought that there were cupcake liners with the Sofia The First display stand but I was wrong.  I love to wait until the last minute sometimes and tonight was no.. Read More
