    Key Largo Family Vacation

    Key Largo Family Vacation– I know, I know, Key Largo has nothing to do with Disney. As the local Florida resident on this blog team, I wanted to bring you all some other great Florida destinations. As our kids are getting bigger we are trying to get out and about and explore our state! Also, in full disclosure, we had such a great time on our Key Largo Family Vacation I wanted to share our adventures.

    The Perks of the Disney Play App

    The Disney Play app has quickly become a must-have app of our Disney trips. The app can be used in both Disney World and DisneyLand. I only have experience using it at Walt DisneyWorld so this article will reference Florida only. You may ask, why download another app? What are the perks of the Disney Play app? This app has lots of cute features to keep you and your kids entertained in the parks. Cute map with interactive elementsWhen you pull up the app it will show you where you are in the park and what activities are located nearby. It has options to listen to Disney music that you…

    Toy Story Birthday Party!

    Toy Story Birthday Party: If you haven’t gotten the memo yet, my family loves Disney. Like we are literally OBSESSED. Even my son, who just turned 5, is already brainwashed head over heels for Disney. Every year (except for his first birthday because he was too young to pick) we let my son decided what his birthday party theme will be. This year he finally picked Toy Story! I was so ecstatic about it because the kid’s name is Andy… it’s about time we had a Toy Story theme. Now, I am no party planning expert. I am not crafty. I am cheap. These three things are really against me…

    Epcot Rides and Attractions for Toddlers and Babies

    Epcot for Toddlers and Babies: When most people think of taking their younger kids to Disney World, they usually think of taking them to Magic Kingdom. And they are not wrong! Magic Kingdom is chock full of toddler-friendly activities! But for some reason, Epcot is lower on the list. Most people would say that Epcot is not for kids. To that I say, no way! Epcot is for everyone! I have already written an article called “Top 8 Things for Kids to Do in Epcot”, but that was written more generally for kids of all ages. This article will be specifically for the younger kiddos. This is a Part 2…

    Top Magic Kingdom Rides and Attractions for Toddlers and Babies

    Magic Kingdom for Toddlers and Babies: Disney World is a place for everyone. Young, old, and young at heart. In my humble opinion, there is no ‘right’ age to take your kid to Disney World. There are benefits to take them when they are babies (they are FREE), and there are benefits to taking them when they are older. But Disney World makes sure that there is something for everyone at every age. Lots of times, when you go to an amusement park, there might not be that much for the younger kiddos. But not at Disney! Here is a list of things that those young kids (and everyone in…

    Halloween at Disney World with Food Allergies – Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

    Halloween at Disney World with Food Allergies: For kids with food allergies, Halloween can be a scary time (and I don’t mean the decorations). You never know where your allergen can be lurking. But, trick-or-treating at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is, as it says in its name, really not so scary! Disney World participates in something called the Teal Pumpkin Project. If you are unfamiliar with that, it’s when families put a Teal Pumpkin (teal is the color of allergy awareness) out on their porch to let other families know that they either have allergy-friendly candy/snacks or nonfood treats such as stickers. Disney implements this so well that kids (or kids…

    Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom: A Beginners Guide

    Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom is something that my family has only just recently started to get into. I have heard about it before, but never really looked into it. I honestly thought it was just another thing that Disney wanted us to fork money over to, because a Disney vacation isn’t expensive enough, right? Well, I was very wrong! Turns out, this is a FREE activity. Not only is it free, but it’s actually a lot of fun! My 4-year-old son (and 27-year-old husband) had a blast running around Magic Kingdom on our last trip playing this game. In this article, I will explain what it is, how it works,…

    Movies You Should See Before Heading to WDW and Character Reference List

    About a year ago, the song “Be Our Guest” came on my Disney Pandora Station. My then three-year-old son says, “Mama, what movie is this song from?” You should have seen the look of pure horror on my face. It was at that moment that I realized I have failed as a parent. My son, who has been to Disney several times now, and even ate at the Beast’s castle (the restaurant is called Be Our Guest for crying out loud AND it’s his favorite restaurant), did NOT know that that song was from Beauty and the Beast. So, I figured I needed to correct this and make him watch…
