Whose counting down the days to the opening of Toy Story Land? June 30th will be here before we know it! Here’s a quick recap of what you need to know.
Guests that are 60 days from their Walt Disney World Resort hotel check-in can choose one FastPass+ reservation for one of the Toy Story Land attractions, plus two other attractions in the park such as Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith, The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, and more, depending on availability.

But FastPass+ reservations are just one of the ways guests can experience Toy Story Land. Beginning July 1, Disney’s Hollywood Studios will also operate from 8 a.m-10:30 p.m. for a limited time. In addition, even more Extra Magic Hour opportunities will be available including daily morning Extra Magic Hours, plus evening Extra Magic Hours offered once per week.
When Toy Story Land debuts on June 30, guests will “shrink” to the size of a toy and join in on the fun Woody, Jessie, Buzz, and Andy’s other beloved toys are having in Andy’s backyard.

Toy Story Mania! One of the most beloved attractions at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Toy Story Mania!, gets an all-new colorful toy carnival game box entrance when the new land opens. In fact, this is the box that the Toy Story Mania! game came in. Recently updated with a third track, the popular attraction will put even more guests in the carnival playset action taking aim at 3D objects – using everything from baseballs to cream pies – in a variety of whimsical, fast-paced games. To the high-scorer go bragging rights.

When it’s time for on-the-go refreshments, Woody’s Lunch Box will serve up tasty meals and old-fashioned soda floats from a walk-up window in a setting surrounded by Andy’s favorite toys and a giant vintage thermos. Woody’s Lunch Box will also feature Mini Babybel – the Official Snack Cheese of Walt Disney World Resort.

We can't wait to plan our next visit and see all our pals at Toy Story Land. Time for a Toy Story movie marathon!

Sweet Penny and the Lion - Book Review

I received a complimentary copy to review. All opinions are my own.

Synopsis of Sweet Penny and the Lion by Richard Fairgray & Alexander Burke

Sweet Penny is so good, she would never do anything to disappoint her parents or disrupt class or upset her friends. In fact, she’s so sweet that even when bullies steal her lunch, she just quietly smiles and lets them.

And then, one day on the playground Penny’s class is playing a game when a lion hops over the fence. Penny’s classmates scream and scatter, but Penny was told to stay right where she is. And so she does.

And the lion eats her.

But something changes when she’s in his very dark belly. She punches and kicks her way out, and when she emerges, not-so-sweet Penny will never be taken advantage of again.

I like the idea of my daughter doing exactly as she is told. But how do I explain to her that sometimes you shouldn’t do as you are told. This particular book tells the story of Penny, a little girl who always did as she was told. But in one particular instance she is put in danger right in front of a lion. While her classmates run for safety she stays exactly where she is. Why? Because her teacher told her not to move. This proves catastrophic, as the lion eats her! Sure this sounds like quite the harsh lesson, but it’s a kid book and she’s just in the lion’s tummy. While inside something changes in Penny. She realizes that she probably shouldn't have stayed where she was. She kicks and punches her way out. From this point forward she learns that no one will take advantage of her sweetness. She knows that sometimes you need to go with your gut, no matter how young.

Sometimes that may mean breaking some rules, rules that could put you in danger. I want my daughter to know this, and this book helps explain it in a way she may understand. Don't end up in "trouble" because you didn't move or speak up.
