Disneyland in December and GIVEAWAY! Win a Trip from Get Away Today

Disneyland in December is always a magical time of year. With the entire resort decorated top to bottom in the holiday spirit, Disneyland is a great place to spend the season. This year there are several additions that make this December at Disneyland even better! Keep reading and see how YOU can win a trip to Disneyland!

Holidays at the Disneyland Resort

Christmas is always a huge draw at the Disneyland. From the amazing decor, specialty treats, and seasonal layovers to popular rides like Haunted Mansion Holiday and “it’s a small world holiday”, this is a beautiful place to celebrate the season. In addition to the usual Christmas favorites, like Candlelight Processional in Disneyland, be sure to spend a day at Disney California Adventure Park to play at Olaf’s Snow Fest, World of Color – Winter Dreams and celebrate at Disney !Viva Navidad! The Christmas feeling extends to the rest of the Resort as well, with holiday decor at the Resort hotels and Downtown Disney Winter Village, where guests can ice skate or shop.

Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration

The 60th anniversary celebration lives on this holiday season. Sleeping Beauty Castle still shines with diamonds and has the addition of a few Christmas touches. Disneyland will continue to show the new nightly spectaculars, Disneyland Forever fireworks and Paint the Night parade as well as feature the traditional Christmas Fantasy Parade.

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.

The Disneyland website notes that Star Wars-themed costumes are allowed for both adults & children (within the guidelines). Tomorrowland restaurants are featuring Star Wars themed dishes on their menus, including a black bun Angus beef and chorizo burger served in a Han Solo Carbonite bucket. 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.

RUBBA DUCKS Flock into the Boathouse Restaurant Disney Springs – Giveaway!

I received two complimentary Rubba Ducks® in exchange for this post. All opinions and comments are my own.

RUBBA DUCKS Flock into the Boathouse Restaurant Disney Springs - Giveaway!

Rubba Ducks® are making a splash at Walt Disney World! These adorable rubber duck toys have an exclusive deal with the The Boathouse in Disney Springs that makes Rubba Ducks® the only non-Disney toy in the Boathouse gift shop.

RUBBA DUCKS Flock into the Boathouse Restaurant Disney Springs - Giveaway!

Rubba Ducks® have character! They are brightly colored and feature  decorative costumes and whimsical designs. You’ll probably see a Rubba Duck® and know exactly who would love it! (I’m partial to the Duckerfly!) In addition to a vast variety of characters available, each of the Rubba Ducks® is adorned with a tattoo on its tail feathers reflecting its unique personality, their own hatch date and cute biography found on their trading cards. You can see the designs available on their website.

RUBBA DUCKS Flock into the Boathouse Restaurant Disney Springs - Giveaway!

We received two Rubba Ducks® for review. Digger is a gardening duck. He wears overalls, a gardening hat and has sculptured tools in his pockets. Crystal has a pretty pink-toned and is faceted like a gemstone. My little one had a good time playing with them before, during and after bath time.

RUBBA DUCKS Flock into the Boathouse Restaurant Disney Springs - Giveaway!

Later in the week we took them to grandma’s swimming pool, where they became pool toys. My son would hold them as he dove down to the bottom of the pool and then let the Rubba Ducks® bob back up to the surface. Most rubber ducks roll over upside down the minute you set them in the water. But Rubba Ducks® are designed with weights at the bottom so they will always float upright which makes them so much more fun to play with!

RUBBA DUCKS Flock into the Boathouse Restaurant Disney Springs - Giveaway!

Every own a rubber ducky? Most rubber ducks have a hole in the bottom which can retain mold (yucky ducky!) I banned most bath toys after that nasty discovery. But not Rubba Ducks®! There is no hole in the bottom so NO MOLD! You can safely let the kids play with them in the bath or pool.

Would you like a Rubba Duck® of your own? Enter the giveaway below and Rubba Ducks® will mail you your own sweet ducky!

Disneyland is celebrating their 60th Anniversary this year with a Diamond Celebration. So I’m celebrating the event myself, down to my shimmering fingertips!

Disney-inspired Jamberry Sweepstakes Giveaway! Do you love nail art? Enter to win this fantastic Jamberry nail wrap prize package!

I love Jamberry for two reasons: 1. I love my gorgeous nails that last up to two weeks. 2. I love being a Jamberry Independent Consultant, which helps me earn money for my family and vacations. If you’re looking for a fun way to earn extra money, definitely consider joining my Jamberry team. We have a great support group online that makes selling sweet and very profitable.

What’s a Jamberry?

Jamberry is a heat-activated adhesive nail wrap. They come in fun and colorful designs. I change mine out every 10 days usually because my nails start growing out. There are handy video application tutorials on the Jamberry website. You can also find countless images and advice links for Jamberry on Pinterest on learning how to apply the wraps. I have found that after the heat application, trimming my wrap closely to the nail edge and using the “plastic baggie” method works perfectly for me!

Make Extra Money (in Little Ways that Really Add Up!) . Being a Jamberry Independent Consultant is a great way to earn money & have pretty nails while you work! Enter the Disney-inspired Jamberry Giveaway Sweepstakes on my website.

My colorful Disney-inspired Jamberry wraps for a trip to Walt Disney World!

I use Jamberry wraps on my toes as well and they last an astonishing 5 weeks! In fact I only have to take them off because my toenails had grown so much. Jamberry are easy to remove; Simply rub with coconut oil and use a cuticle stick to break the seal to remove. Sliding a dental floss pick under and gently working the wrap off with the coconut oil perfectly removes the wraps without any damage to your nail.

One sheet of Jamberry nails wraps gives you two manicures, two pedicures and extra for accents. You can't get that many salon treatments for such a wonderfully love price! Enter the Disney-inspired Jamberry Giveaway Sweepstakes! on my website.

One regular sheet of nail wraps can be used for two manicure applications and two pedicures. You’ll also have a few nail wraps left to use as accent nails. Jamberry wraps are longer lasting and less expensive than nails done at the salon, so they are extremely budget friendly. You can also mix and match coordinating wraps to create your own unique style!

ENTER TO WIN! – Jamberry Giveaway

As someone who is “Saving up for Disney”, I try to earn extra money in all sorts of different ways. I work full-time out of the home. I sew and sell appliqued clothing under the name Painted Butterfly Studio on Etsy. I teach tumbling at a local rec center. I use Ebates for all my online shopping. And now, I am also an Independent Consultant for Jamberry!

ENTER TO WIN! - Jamberry Giveaway

I tried Jamberry nail wraps in October of last year and my nails haven’t gone without a Jam on them ever since! I started off with French manicure white tips and they looked so polished and professional that I just had to buy more.

I have streamlined the application process and it takes me less than 45 minutes from start to finish to apply my Jamberry nail wraps. There is no waiting for them to dry which means I’m done and ready to go on with my life immediately! And the Jamberry wraps last for up to two weeks which never happens for me with polished nails. I’m usually a chipped mess with polish after just a few days, but my Jamberry wraps still look great.
