Its My Birthday!!!

I can not believe it is my birthday today and I am turning 30.  Yes, 30!  I kind of don't think its that big of a deal but I am kind of said to be leaving my 20's.  So much has happened in the last ten years.  I got married, bought a house, had two wonderful little boys, and we also bought an investment condo.  I am excited to see what the next 10 years have for me.

So now I will tell you my one birthday wish.  I know its a bad omen, bad luck or whatever that it won't come true but I believe in the power of positive thinking and if you want it bad enough and do everything you can you can make anything happen.  So....I want to win this contest that has going on.  I want to as they say "escape to the happiest place on earth". I would love to win to know that I could take my family on a vacation and not have to worry about the costs that go along with a vacation.  Plus I honestly think this is a very realistic wish.  So as I blow out my birthday candles I will be thinking of nothing but Disney!

A Little Secret About Me!

So when I was little I actually took piano lessons for a little while but I was not a fan of practicing.  I did however love to teach myself songs I heard.  Among those songs were mostly Disney songs and my absolute favorite song I taught myself to play was "A Whole New World" from Disney's Aladdin.  I would sit at the piano for hours singing the song until I figured out which notes to play and eventually I got it.  Not thaat it was a fancy version but still not bad if I don't say so myself.

You might even catch me singing a song from The Little Mermaid if I think I am all alone or in my car too lol.

My Halloween Costume

So I decided I am going to be Ariel from the Little Mermaid for Halloween this year.  I am going to put on a shimmery green mermaid tail, dye my hair red, and wear a seashell bra.  Just kidding!  Am I too old to go trick or treating lol.  I heard that Disney puts on a spooktacular event for Halloween during the month of October at Disney.  I think it would be so much fun to experience something different or out of the ordinary at Disney such as a holiday, just because anything Disney doe is always over the top and magical.

Tips to Saving on Tickets to Disney

It can be very pricy for a family of four to spend a day at a Disney theme park.  With prices around $80 a person that is over $300 plus parking and food.  There are some things you can d though to help with that.

1. Go before you children turn 3 as anyone under 3 is free.  I know they might be too young but if you have one child that is older you can always plan a trip right before your younger one turns 3 so you at least have to purchase one last ticket.

2.  Plan the trip around someones birthday.  You can get free admission on your birthday!

3.  Listen to a timeshare.  I know long and boring and I don't advise doing this at all unless you go in knowing you can say no to the timeshare salesman but hey you can usually get a few tickets this way maybe even four.

4.  Do a goggle search for free Disney tickets.  I did this and learned that Florida residents can get free admission for children up to age 5!  When I have done this in the past they were offering a free ticket to anyone that volunteered time to any charity on their list.  My sister took advantage of this for a free ticket.

These are just a few tips to help you save on tickets to Disney!

Why I Can't go to the Disney Store

I personally banned myself from going into the Disney Store. The thing is when I go in that store I just want to buy everything. I am sure Chris would love it if I did buy him everything. Especially when I go to the huge corner in the back which is labeled clearance. I literally want to get one of everything because it is just so cheap! The last time I went there they had jumbo stuffed cars characters for only $4! They also had Toy Story bobble heads for $2 and some of the die cast Cars characters for $2. I contained myself and walked out with nothing but I know I will be going back soon seeing that not only are the boys birthdays comin up in two months but is also almost time for Christmas!

FREE! Disney Planning DVD

This is an awesome freebie because whether you are planning a Disney vacation or not your kids will LOVE watching the planning DVD available here.  If you are planning a Disney vacation then make sure you get it because it will show exactly what all the Disney theme parks and hotels have to offer.  I am clueless when it comes to what options I have in this area and honestly didn't even realize how many options were available until I saw the DVD.  So check it out like I said its FREE!  Can't beat that :)

The New Cars Land at Disney Land

This summer a brand new attraction opened up at Disney Land. I have never ever been to Disney Land but if all things even if I had a choice between Disney Land or World I would choose Disney Land just so my boys could go to the Cars themed land. I have looked at pics online and posts from other bloggers and they have actually made a town to look exactly like Radiator Springs. My son Chris would just flip if he saw that. He had so much fun visiting Mater and Lightening McQueen on his last trip I could only imagine the look on his face if we took hm to Radiator Springs. So Sally and Lightening, hopefully we will be visiting you soon!

Disney Jr - Our Favorite TV Channel

Sometimes I feel guilty because yes, I use the television as a babysitter. But honestly I feel as though it is sometimes necessary. There are many days where it is just the kids and I since my husband goes out of town for work and I just need to do things like make dinner or prepare for the next day. An hour of television makes these tasks so much easier. I also love that if we are home alone it keeps the kids entertained while I am in the shower for ten minutes. I am picky about what I watch and I would say 99% of the time I turn it to Disney Jr. It has shows that are educational, entertaining, and age appropriate. I also love that they don't have commercials instead they show little skits like they will read a poem. Little Einsteins is one of my boys favorites. They participate in the entire show and I'll join in with them too!

My First Trip to Disney

One of my earliest memories as a child was going to Disney World when I was 4 years old. I kind of hold a gruge against my parents for this because although I had tons of fun, one day they decided to go to Epcot Center. They told me it was an adult theme park and were going to put me in daycare for the day. I am sure they meant the best at the time but no child wants to be at daycare in a strange place while their parents go hang out with Mickey, lol. So I went kicking and screaming into the daycare. Literally. Several of the daycare workers had to hold me just to keep me from escaping. I am sure once I calmed down I had a fun time at the daycare. My parents felt sooo bad about leaving me there and they showered me with presents when they picked me up. Yes we went to Epcot when I was older and it didn't seem like a grown up theme park but I also understand that my parents probably wanted a day to themselves.

Disney Mickey Food

One of the things I love about Disney is the amount of effort they put into the small details. From folding the towels to look like swans to waffles that look like Mickey. I think it is all of these little things that make a trip to Disney even more memorable and special. There are Mickey sandwiches, mickey ice cream, mickey waffles, mickey cookies...I mean you name it it probably comes in Mickey form. For someone that is not a huge Mickey fan this may be Mickey overload but to those looking to enjoy the entire experience you will be in Mickey heaven.

I Love Mickey Mouse!

I admit it...I absolutely love Mickey Mouse! I mean he is such a great pick me up always smiling and happy. He is always ready for an adventure and has the appropriate outfit for anything. I remember when I was little and I would watch that Mickey skit where he is cleaning and uses his magic hat to bring the brooms to life and before he knows it there are 100's of brooms dancing about. It was love from that day forward. I remember standing in line for 2 hours to wait to met him at Disney World and when it was my turn they switched to Donald Duck so what did my mom do, yup, we got back in line after meeting Donald and waited another 2 hours to see Mickey! Love you Mickey and hopefully I can visit you soon.

Disney on Ice-Treasure Trove!

So our night out to Disney on Ice started out horrible. For some reason my tickets weren't at will call and after 4 trips between will call and the media office in the rain I finally got our tickets. The ladies that work at Feld were super super nice and made sure I got my tickets to Disney on Ice. Our seats were fabulous! Not too close but not too far and Chris was able to see everything from his seat. He was sooo into it. He literally couldn't take his eyes off of the huge crocodile from Peter Pan, Goofy falling on the ice, and he roared when Simba came out. I was glad he was able to enjoy the show which was a fun experience for all of us. I can not wait until we go to another Disney on Ice.

Disney on Ice-Treasure Trove

So while I have been trying to win a trip to Disney all month I was able to win some tickets to Disney on Ice Treasure Trove. Honestly I think I am more excited about going then my son. Hey having kids gives you an excuse to do fun things! I am so excited as I haven't been to a show like this since I was little and I know my sister and mom are excited to be going as well. I have been telling my son all week that we are going to see Mickey and his response is "Minnie Mouse"! So at least he understands. Can't wait to tell you all about it tomorrow!

Why I love Disney World

I have to say I am biased. I have only been to Disney World so of course it is my favorite. It is not to far mind you it is easier to take a plane, but out of all the Disney parks it is the closest. I also love that it is near the beach so if you do plan a trip with your family you can spend 3-4 days at Disney and then 3-4 days at the beach. Don't get me wrong I would love to visit the Disney parks in California or Europe or even their gorgeous Polynesian resort in Hawaii but practicality and a sense of comfort make Walt Disney World my personal favorite.

Enter To Win a Disney Vacation from BodyLogicMD!

I think one of my very first memories as a child is of my parents taking me to Disney World.  It was such a wonderful time meeting Micky and Minnie and I realize now what a privilege it is to experience such a magical place. 

This year my son who is 2 was lucky enough to experience Disney World as well thanks to his wonderful Aunt and Uncle taking him for the first time.  I hope it is something he will remember forever but if not we will have pictures to look at and hopefully a chance to go again in the future.

You can head over here for a chance to win a wonderful trip to Disney including airfare and hotel!
