Honest Kids New Flavors Review and GIVEAWAY!

My kids truly love Honest Kids! It’s the only juice we purchase for them because it’s certified organic and sweetened only with fruit juice. We’ve shared our love of Honest Kids via social media and have always received a nice response from the company. Isn’t it good when the company feels as nice as the product!

Honest Kids New Flavors Review and GIVEAWAY!

We recently had the pleasure of testing the two new Honest Kids additions, which will be available in 8-pouch, single-variety cartons starting in March 2016.

Honest Kids New Flavors Review and GIVEAWAY!

The newest members of the Honest Kids family are:

·         Cherry Go Round: Give this one a whirl! A lively mix of organic apple, grape and cherry juices with other delicious organic ingredients, Cherry Go Round may be a newcomer but with its exuberant flavor, it’s certainly no sideshow! Available in 6.75 fl. oz. pouches.

·         Twisted Tropical Tango: A veritable typhoon of tropical flavors, this organic blend of apple, grape, and orange juices is balanced with a touch of mango puree and other organic ingredients for a smooth and refreshing taste.  Available in 6.75 fl. oz. pouches.

We’ve tested both flavors and they have the light and refreshing fresh juice taste we’ve come to love and expect from Honest Kids. I can’t decide which is my favorite. I love the bright hit of cherry in Cherry Go Round, which is unique and delicious. And the subtle mango mixed with the orange juice in Twisted Tropical Tango is flavorful and thirst-quenching. I love that after I drink Honest Kids juice my thirst is actually quenched and I’m not left feeling thirstier (like with some other drinks).

Any guest can save money by purchasing their Park tickets up front through ParkSavers, even on non-Park Hopper tickets! You can even book a hotel or a full vacation package through ParkSavers and save on your trip. Vacation packages even include some special features like a savings card that can be used in the Downtown Disney District.

Celebration Fun at Our #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Party 2016!

Celebration Fun at Our #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Party!

#DisneyKids Preschool Playdate

Who doesn’t love a celebration? And all preschoolers love to party! Mix preschoolers with Disney and other great sponsors and it’s a guaranteed great time! We had such a wonderful time at our DisneySide multi-generation@ HomeCelebration last year, I was excited to host again this year. Being nearly 38 weeks pregnant put a bit of a spin on how elaborate I could get but fortunately Disney supplied me with a great kit of goodies.

I received free products in order to host the DisneyKids Preschool Playdate. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Opening the Box!

Here are two videos of my son opening the boxes. Yes, he is truly this enthusiastic about everything in life (but especially Disney!) And wow, he says, “Oh my gosh!” a lot!

Celebration Fun at Our #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Party!

The box arrived and inside was an American Tourister suitcase with my kid’s favorite new princess, Sophia the First! This suitcase is perfectly sized for preschoolers and it was stuffed full of treats to share with our guests.

#DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Party Day!

The enclosed party supplies helped set the stage for the preschoolers at our local park. It was a beautiful day and the kids were able to play together, enjoy a snack and do a craft.

IMG_2098

Being from SoCal, we are only 90 minutes from the Disneyland Resort. Several of my party guests were discussing upcoming Disneyland vacations and I was able to share with them how much fun my son had on our Walt Disney World vacation last year when he was three years old. Though it was a more elaborate cross-country vacation, it was a trip that he still talks about near-daily!

I highly encouraged my guests to consider a Walt Disney World vacation next time they were planning for Disney and not to be discouraged by the younger ages of their children. As the maps included in our party kit showed, there are plenty of things at the Walt Disney World Resort to be enjoyed by preschoolers!

Celebration Fun at Our #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Party!

Since this was a DisneyKids “playdate” and not a full-blown party, I kept the snacks and games light and really let the kids engage and play together!

I made party popcorn to fill inside of the included Glad food bags. These high-quality bags feature favorite Disney characters (ours had Cars designs). I simply purchased pre-popped popcorn and spread it out onto cookie sheets. Candy melts in chocolate and vanilla drizzled on the popcorn, then decorated with red and yellow sprinkles make this popcorn perfect! After the candy had hardened I simply scooped a serving into the Glad food bags for each guest. Check out #MagicofGlad via social media to see how other party hosts stuffed their Glad food bags!

Celebration Fun at Our #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Party!

Our packet came with lots of fun activities for preschoolers including bingo but my group was on the younger side and getting little ones to leave the playground was too much to ask! Some of our preschool guests had younger siblings that attended so I was able to take some of the party games and use them in other ways that fit my group.

Celebration Fun at Our #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Party!

Our #DisneyKids Definitely Loved to Create!

After the kids had run around together on the playground and stopped for a snack, they were ready for crafting time. Tulip’s Puffy Paint and Aleene’s Tacky Glue was included with paper sacks and some characters to cut out.

My guests used the glittery #puffypaint and glue to #gluestufftostuff all over their bags. We love to #createincolor and have preschool art time every day, so this was an opportunity for my little guests to have fun and get a little messy!

And well, it’s not a party unless I have cupcakes. I decorated them to match the Mickey theme in classic red, black and yellow sprinkles, which as you can see were a big hit with our preschoolers!

IMG_2095

#DisneyKids Goodie Bags

Our #DisneyKids box also included DisneyJunior bags that I filled with a poster from The Lion Guard, a reversible paper hat featuring DisneyJunior’s Sophia the First crown or Jake & the Neverland Pirates hat, The Lion Guard tattoos, a Clover Dairy coupon, and the Walt Disney World map that shows what attractions are recommended for preschoolers visiting Walt Disney World.

Each family was able to take home these mementos of our DisneyKids Preschool Playdate!

Our #DisneyKids Celebrating Continued at Home

Celebration Fun at Our #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Party!

Nesquik sent a package of yummy chocolate milk that my kids (and I confess, me too!) have been enjoying with our breakfast. It’s a delicious way to flavor the milk and also includes 7 essential vitamins and minerals. See photos of other #DisneyKid partiers by following the hashtag #StirImagination.

Because cupcakes, party popcorn, watermelon and chocolate milk is bound to make it on the clothes of a busy preschooler, I appreciated being able to wash away the party evidence with the sample packets of all free clear detergent.

Celebration Fun at Our #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Party!

We didn’t have the chance to read the book by Banfield Pet Hospital at the party but it has quickly become my 4-year old’s most requested bedtime book! “My Very, Very Smelly Breath” tells the story of a dog who has less than attractive breath, accompanied by silly scratch-and-sniff sections that have my son in stitches! Check out Banfield Pet Hospital on Facebook to see other informative and entertaining children’s books that they offer.

Celebration Fun at Our #DisneyKids Preschool Playdate Party!

We had a wonderful playdate with our preschool friends and have already heard from our young guests about what a great time they had!

Thank you BSM Media and Disney for sending us this fantastic box of treats to share with our preschool friends!

Important Advice to Know About Transportation at Disneyland Resort

Important Advice to Know About Transportation at Disneyland Resort

Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Blue Loop. Today we are discussing how planning a trip to Disneyland is different than planning a visit to Walt Disney World.


Transportation at Disneyland can be a bit more complicated than at Walt Disney World, where guests staying onsite simply hop aboard a bus, boat or monorail that deposits them directly at the Park gate. But at Disneyland, because of the more petite footprint, there are several other options that can really help you maximize your time.

Important Advice to Know About Transportation at Disneyland Resort

Arriving at the Parks, bright and early!

Unlike the vast and spread out Walt Disney World, the Disneyland Resort is smack-dab in the middle of a bustling city! On one side of the front gates are motels, freeways, sidewalks, parking lots and traffic. On the other side of the gate exists the “Disney bubble” with a transportation system of its own! So how do you quickly get from one to the other? By using a combination of transportation systems, you’ll soon be on your way.

Here’s an important overview of transportation at Disneyland

Important Advice to Know About Transportation at Disneyland Resort

Take a picture before boarding the escalator to help you remember which level you parked on.

Parking Structure or Parking Area

There are hundreds of hotels in the Anaheim area, so if one of the three Disneyland Resort hotels is booked or if you’re looking for a more budget option, seek an offsite hotel. This means you’ll need to consider how to get to the Parks each day. If you are planning on driving your car in each day, depending upon the direction you come from or which lots are available, you’ll have several parking options. The cost will be $18 per day for cars & motorcycles, no matter if you choose the structure (garage) or area (parking lot).

Mickey and Friends Parking Structure is located on Disneyland Dr. and has a large capacity (which can be a good or bad thing). After descending the escalators, you’ll be funneled into a waiting space for a Disney resort tram. Early in the morning the wait is minimal but come just around Park opening and you may find yourself waiting as long as 30 minutes for a tram to take you to the Park entrance. These open-air trams will deposit you at the end of the Downtown Disney District, near the front entrance to the Parks. At the end of the day, you might find that the wait for the tram to take you back to the parking structure can be upwards of a half hour. You’ll be required to fold up your stroller and hold packages on your lap. Waiting in line for the tram you can be guaranteed to see several sleeping kids, many grouchy parents and lots of people who are pushy to get the next seat on the tram. Time your exit knowing that getting a seat on the tram back to the parking structure can be trying.

Important Advice to Know About Transportation at Disneyland Resort

Taking the escalators at Mickey & Friends Parking Structure. The tram is arriving at the bottom.

Toy Story Parking Area is located off South Harbor Blvd. Once parked here, you’ll be shuttled on a Disneyland Resort bus directly to the front entrance. There is also the Pumbaa Parking Area, located on Disney Way. It’s a bit smaller of a lot and just off the freeway so it generally fills up quickly. At the end of the day, you’ll be able to catch a ride back on one of the buses in the same location and be taken back to your vehicle. We’ve always had better luck with wait times for transportation back to the Toy Story parking area (less than 10 minutes) versus the Mickey and Friends parking structure (upwards of 30 minutes). For me, parking in the lots is ideal to the parking structure, though traffic getting in and out can be more difficult because you are located on busier streets.

Important Advice to Know About Transportation at Disneyland Resort

Bus transportation back to the parking areas.

For more information and a map of the different parking locations, click this link from the Disneyland Resort.

Take the Bus

Local bus transportation, including Greyhound, Los Angeles Metro or Orange County Transit Authority is available if you are further away and need a ride to the Parks. Anaheim Resort Transit (ART) is a convenient and cost-effect method of transportation from area hotels to the Disneyland Resort or convention center.

If you are staying at a Good Neighbor Hotel, many of them offer shuttle service from their hotel to the Disneyland Resort, so check when booking. Our recent stay at the Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel offered guests a complimentary shuttle ride to and from the parks on their Dream Machine.

Dream Machine, free shuttle service from the Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel.

Check out more via this link from the Disneyland Resort about bus service.

Catch the Monorail

Already have your valid resort ticket and want to jump right in to the heart of the Disneyland Park? You can get quick access via the monorail from the Downtown Disney District station. This is a great option for those staying at the Disneyland Hotel and Paradise Pier Hotel or for those who are staying off-site but walking to the parks through Downtown Disney District. There is a security check at this entrance and you do need your valid resort ticket on hand.

Important Advice to Know About Transportation at Disneyland Resort

Please note that the monorail’s 2.5 mile route only has two stops, one in the Downtown Disney District and one in Tomorrowland inside Disneyland. The monorail does not stop at Disney’s California Adventure park.

Drop off/Pick up

If you have the ability to have someone drop you off and pick you up at the front entrance there is an area on Harbor Blvd. If you want to take a taxi back to your hotel, this is where you’d be able to pick up a ride.

Important Advice to Know About Transportation at Disneyland Resort

Walking back to our hotel, a quick 10 minutes.

Walking

Sometimes there’s nothing more reliable than your own two feet! Choose a hotel that’s close-by (easy to do in Anaheim) and you can be out the door and at the front gate in a matter of minutes! This makes it easy to take a mid-day break for swimming or napping if you can quickly walk back to your hotel.

Find Out How to Get the Best Family Photos at Disney

Find Out How to Get the Best Family Photos at Disney without Paying for PhotoPass

Coming home from your vacation with family photos at Disney is one of the best souvenirs that money can’t buy. We all love having those photo mementos to look back on of our days at Disney. PhotoPass is great, but definitely an added expense. All too often after my trip, I look at the shots I took and realize that I didn’t take enough pictures of all of us together. Or the shots we took just aren’t frame-worthy. Having a photo game-plan can help!

Find out how to get the best family photos at Disney

bestphotos6

Start early in the day

I find that if I have it on my mind to take family photos early in the day then it’s more likely to happen! Plus, everyone still looks good and hair is decent before we become a bit disheveled from the loops on California Screamin’ and the whipping wind on the Silly Symphony Swings! A good place to start with a family shot is in front of the Mickey floral arrangement at Disneyland or with the Walt statue at Disney California Adventure Park.

Take a quick look at everyone

Before getting into position take a fast glance at everyone in your group. Does anyone have a smear of chocolate on their cheeks? Hair that could use smoothing? Holding something that you could put down? Have everyone take off their sunglasses, purses and in some cases, hats (if it’s causing unflattering shadows on the face).

BestPicturesCollage2

Picture 1 – Wearing sunglasses, Picture 2 – Sunglasses off and there is much more expression in the shot. If I’d noticed the kids were holding food, I would have had them hide it!

Best locations in the Parks

Naturally, there are the classic spots, like in the hub with Main Street U.S.A. behind you or directly in front of the Castle. Right now, there are some fun photo locations at the Disneyland Resort. like this one in front of Haunted Mansion.

Find Out How to Get the Best Family Photos at Disney without Paying for PhotoPass

If you find that getting a clear photo of your entire family without people walking in front of or behind your perfect shot, try to scope out an alternate location nearby that still gets the iconic image in the background but focuses on your group. I like having my family stand near the statues in front of the Castle so you can still see the Castle behind them, but the crowd is blurry. Some easy locations for a clear shot are near the Radiator Springs Racers or with Mickey’s Fun Wheel behind you at the entrance to Paradise Pier area.

bestphotos8

Don’t rule out the selfie

Cram everyone together and take a selfie. Yeah, you might not get everyone’s head in the shot but you can really capture the fun and togetherness of your vacation with a selfie photo of your group.

Unique Locations

Take a look around the Resort and find creative spots to pose your family. We find that many of the temporary walls that are assembled in front of up-coming projects are great backdrops. I love this one of my family in front of what would later be Cars Land. They struck a silly pose and it’s one of my favorite family photos!

Find Out How to Get the Best Family Photos at Disney without Paying for PhotoPass

Catch them on a ride

Stake out a good spot ahead of time and capture the moment. Some rides are easier than others. For some attractions, like the Mad Tea Party teacups you can stand on the sidelines and take a shot of your family before they start spinning.

bestphotos5

Use your fancy camera & your cell phone camera

If you can, take a few shots with your camera and then again with your cell phone. Sometimes one captures the moment (and the lighting) better than the other. I know that my fancier camera doesn’t take photos in the dark as well as my cell phone camera either.

Best lighting

Angle your group to get the best and most flattering lighting. No use snapping photos if the light if coming behind them and making your family shadowy and unrecognizable. Having your family stand under open shade (not dappled light and not in direct sun) for the most flattering natural light. Turn their faces towards the sunlight but not directly eyeing the sun or they’ll all be squinting. You’ll know you have the best lighting when skin looks creamy and there are “catch” lights in the eyes (they’ll sparkle!)

Great location but bad time of day because it’s too bright! If the sun is shining in their faces, making them squint there is no way you’ll be able to capture a decent shot.

Take more than one of the same shot

Long gone are the days of film, where you’d snap one single shot of the moment and cross your fingers that everyone had their eyes open! With digital photography, feel free to take a bunch of shots of the same pose. You’ll be that much more likely to find one that is perfect.

Picture 1: Closed eyes, Picture 2: Off center and blurry, Picture 3: Frame worthy!

Picture 1: Closed eyes, Picture 2: Off center and blurry, Picture 3: Frame worthy!

Candid, as well as posed

Capture those little moments as you see them throughout your trip. Take tons of photos because you just never know what you’ll capture!

Recruit a Cast Member or PhotoPass Photographer

Even if you aren’t purchasing PhotoPass, you can still request that a PhotoPass photographer take your picture. Make sure your camera is set and ready to go before you hand it over to them. Every shot in this post that is of our entire family were taken by PhotoPass photographers with my own personal camera. No need to pay for pictures this way. And you can still capture that perfect family photo at Disney, without any extra cost!

You can spend time together at home, make it budget-friendly but also bring the family closer together. From creating a special dinner plan together, desserts that feature M&M’s® products, getting comfy in your pajamas and playing a fun Hasbro® Game together, these family nights will be the things your kids will remember.

With three kids (and another one on the way) we simply don’t have it in our budget to take the entire family out on the town. Just going out to dinner could cost us $60+. A full night out with our kids could easily cost us $150+ for dinner, dessert and entertainment…what a hard hit to the budget! However we do love to have fun at home and we all look forward to our family game night that include a special meal, dessert and games played with mom & dad in our pajamas!

Family Movie Night Dinner – Disney Classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Family Movie Night Dinner - Disney Classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Welcome to this month’s Blogorail Yellow Loop. Today we are sharing ideas for Disney movie nights.


What better food for a Snow White family movie night than traditional Bavarian dishes just like the dwarves would have dined on?  The country in which Snow White is set in is unclear but the belief is that it is in Germany. Disney’s Snow White is based on Brother Grimm’s adaption, who are German writers and are thought to have based this fairy tale in Germany.

My husband and I traveled through Bavaria about a year and a half ago and noted how much the little villages looked “Disney” to us. It’s obvious that Fantasyland at Disneyland was heavily influenced by Bavarian culture.

Traditional German dishes are heavy on the meats. On our trip to Munich, we dined on freshly baked soft pretzels, weisswurst (white sausage) and sweet mustard. With a pint of beer, of course. And that was for breakfast!

Themed Family  Movie Night - Disney Classic Snow White

This apple struedel we shared in Germany was just heavenly. I wanted to create a Bavarian feel for our Snow White family movie night and looked online for traditional German foods that would be appealing to our kids.

2014-08-11 12.02.04-3  Themed Family  Movie Night - Disney Classic Snow White

Main Dish – German Beef Stew

To kick off our Snow White movie night, I decided to make a Pichelsteiner. This is a German stew that contains several kinds of meats and vegetables. Perhaps that’s what Snow White was preparing for the dwarfs in the large pot? I used my Dutch oven, not quite as rustic as the dwarfs giant pot in the fireplace!

Themed Family Movie Night - Disney Classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

The traditional recipes I found contained shoulder of lamb, beef chuck, veal and pork which would be quite a heavy dish for my family, who are unaccustomed to dining on such rich meats. Fortunately Food.com had this recipe for a more simple stew.

Themed Family Movie Night - Disney Classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

The stew went together quickly. After an hour of simmering it was ready to serve. I decided to make mine earlier in the day and then set in the fridge to let the flavors blend. I heated it up quickly at dinner time and mmmm, so tasty and homey…just like Snow White would have made!

Themed Family Movie Night - Disney Classic Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

Dessert – Apple Crumble Pie

My very pregnant belly would not cooperate with me standing at the kitchen counter, rolling dough for an authentic strudel so I made an apple crumb pie instead. I used a pre-made bottom crust (I like Pillsbury pie crusts from the refrigerator case) and then followed a basic apple pie recipe for the filling. The topping is simply oatmeal, brown sugar, walnuts and some melted butter crumbled on top.

2015-05-11 10.42.33-3

No complaints from my family! Let’s just say that all these rich flavors certainly made my house smell warm and cozy, just like I imagine the little cottage in the woods did while Snow White was cooking!

The Main Feature

We ended the evening by watching our DVD of Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs. If you don’t already own it, it’s now available on Blu-Ray from Amazon (affiliate link).
