Well….we did it. We spent 12 hours at Magic Kingdom in Florida with an 18 month old who JUST learned how to walk. We surprisingly didn’t have any major mishaps or anything crazy happen while we there (no tantrums, no clothing changes, etc…). It was a pretty smooth day despite the random rain here and there. I put together some tips that worked for us on our first trip to the Magic Kingdom with our toddler and wanted to share.
This past week we were in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina on a family vacation with my in-laws (celebrating my Father-In-Law’s 60th birthday) and their extended family. The family took our daughter to the beach, and we had a “parents day out” and grabbed a casual lunch at Disney’s Hilton Head Island Resort. Here are some photos from our day at the resort.
I recently attended the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA. It was pure chaos but so much fun. This was my first time attending and so I didn’t know what to expect really. I did, however, watch a couple of videos and read a few “things to know before you go” blog posts prior to attending, but you really don’t know what to expect unless you go and experience it for yourself. If you don’t know what D23 is…the “D” stands for Disney and the “23” stands for 1923, the year Walt Disney founded his company. The D23 Expo happens every two years.
Here is a recap of some of the highlights from the D23 Expo as told from this first-time attendee.
We are headed to Disney World this summer! It will be my first time in Florida AND my first time going to Disney World. While there, we will be celebrating our 5th year wedding anniversary (a little early). I’m hoping to get the most out of this trip to Disney World because I’m treating it as a once in a lifetime vacation. I’m dramatic, I know….Here are some ways that I’m preparing our little family for this exciting vacation to the Magic Kingdom:
Located just outside of Disneyland Parks, Downtown Disney District is the perfect mixture of food and entertainment with a little something to do for the whole family! It’s the perfect getaway when you’re needing that Disneyland fix, it’s a great date night spot, or even a pre game to your Disneyland Hotel vacation before you head to the parks. Here are some recommendations for where to eat, what to see and things to do while at Downtown Disney.
This past weekend, we attended Disney on Ice, “Dream Big” in Long Beach, CA. Watching our baby girl in awe of the show brought back so many childhood memories. Seeing her giant smile gazing at the organized chaos through extremely talented and entertaining ice skaters was so cute I could’ve cried. Okay, I did!
