Shirts for Disney Fans That They’ll Love to Wear!

As a big time Disney fan I want to show the Disney love even when I’m not at the parks. I recently discovered MouseApparel on Etsy and sent a Christmas Disney-themed shirt as a gift.

I was looking for something that I could wear year-round so Adrienne then sent me this tee, I’m Done Adulting. Where’s Disney? Perfect, right! I love the raglan style and it’s a soft and roomy tee.

Check out these other shirts for Disney fans, with choices for adults and kids (including a way to win your own tee!)

And special Opening Night discount tickets are available for only $12 each (not valid for VIP/Front Row levels). We’ll be there on opening night and we can’t WAIT!

Mickey and Minnie will take audiences on a sightseeing adventure created for the entire family to explore the African Pride Lands with Simba, Timon and Pumbaa; voyage deep under the sea to Ariel’s mystical underwater kingdom and tour London with Peter Pan and Wendy before flying to Neverland to meet up with Tinker Bell.  Plus, travel to Arendelle for an extraordinary adventure with sisters Anna and Elsa, rugged mountain man Kristoff and everyone’s favorite, huggable snowman Olaf, as they journey to discover that true love is the most magical power of all.

Disney On Ice presents Passport to Adventure features an international team of award-winning figure skaters, high-energy choreography and a colorful set that captures all four unique worlds. Upbeat music, lovable characters and unforgettable moments make this an experience families will cherish forever!

Honest Kids New Flavors Review and GIVEAWAY!

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).

5 lucky winners will receive a month’s supply of the new Honest Kids varieties, shipped to their house from Honest Tea…That’s a lot of sweet sipping!

How to Save Money on Disney Park Tickets & Vacations

Discounted Park tickets to Disneyland can be elusive. In the past, discounts have been reserved to Southern California locals or those working in specific professions. I’ve had ParkSavers as one of my affiliates for a while now and there are several great reasons why. 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.

If you’re looking outside of Disney, ParkSavers also offers discounts to other destinations including Universal Studios Orlando, Disney’s Aulani Resort and Las Vegas.

BIG Disney Vacation GIVEAWAY from ParkSavers!! Win a 3-night vacation to your choice of Disneyland or Walt Disney World

ParkSavers is offering my readers a VERY BIG Disney Vacation giveaway!

Seasons of the Force

Tomorrowland is feeling the force as Star Wars takes over during what is sure to be a successful takeover. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the overlay on Space Mountain into Hyperspace Mountain. The Innoventions building has been transformed into the Star Wars Launch Bay, complete with Meet n’ Greets (Chewbacca or Darth Vader). Star Tours – The Adventure Continues now features a new scene from the movie Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Debuting December 8th, young Guests can participate in the updated Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple. There is no official end date to this special event, but rumor is mid-March.
