WDW Wednesdays - Day One - Epcot

Surprise Madeline, you're going to Disney World!

We woke up the girls at about 3:30 in the morning and got them all dressed up in their Disney outfits. We finally told Madeline we were taking her on a wonderful trip to Disney World on our way to the airport. Upon hearing the news she suddenly perked up and was wide awake. I'm not sure if she understood what was going on, but once we got to the airport and she saw her cousins waiting, she was excited and couldn't stop talking. On a side note I guess booking a 6AM flight wasn't the best idea, as that meant I was going to get zero sleep until the end of our first day. Sleep, it's overrated when you're heading to the "happiest place on Earth!" But in reality a week later, I'm still so tired. I know what people mean when they say they need a vacation from their vacation! But worth it.

Back to School - Haircut

Getting ready for back to school. It's always a good thing when my little girl, now 4, decides on her own that she wants to get a hair cut. She's been asking for a hair cut since her birthday, when I only let her get a trim. I wanted her hair to be as long as possible for our surprise trip to Disney World and the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique. More on that next week!

So now that we are back that is the first thing we did. We visited KidSnips in the Oak Brook Mall, where they work specifically with children. Plus they are open till 8pm which helps so much as a working mom. I love Rochelle. She does such a good job and has great patience. Madeline loves that she can watch a show, ride a car, and gets a prize and lollipop at the end of her visit. Check out Madeline's new look!

WDW Wednesday - Memory Maker For Lasting Memories

Photo Credit: disneyworld.disney.go.com

I'm not sure why I even waited so long to purchase this, probably the price tag. But after doing some research I decided this was totally going to be worth it (I'll let you know when I get back for sure).

With Disney's Memory maker you don't have to worry about:
  • Bringing a fancy camera - you could lose it or damage it
  • Having a family member take the photo - Everyone can be in the photo
  • Asking a stranger to take it for you (well kind of, LOL).
  • Losing the photos
  • Running out of memory/battery on your camera or phone
The perks of the photo package:

  • Unlimited digital downloads of all your Disney PhotoPass photos and videos
  • Select Attraction photos and videos
  • Select Character dining photos
  • Discounts on prints of your photos
  • Magic Shots – featuring Disney Characters and more, added to your photos
  • Digital borders and stickers to personalize your photos
  • LIMITED TIME EXPERIENCE: From August 7-31, Guests with Memory Maker will have access to a private character experience with a Disney Princess at Magic Kingdom Park - Heritage House!
So yes I am excited about this. All you have to do is have the photographer scan your MagicBand or if you don't have one, your PhotoPass Card, which is linked to your account. You don't need the Memory Maker package to take advantage of the Disney photographers, but you'll be paying per download for those photos. With such a big group of us I'm sure we'll want a lot of photos, so the package is best. We could even split the cost between our big group. Unlimited downloads of photos sounds so magical to me! If you buy in advance you can save some money too. Get more details here. Oh, and be sure to download your photos, you have a limited amount of time before they're gone.

Stitch Fix Review - August Box

I'm so excited to finally be going on vacation with the family! This time around I asked my Stitch Fix Stylist to send me some Walt Disney World friendly clothes. Plus I also asked for a top that would make it easy to nurse my 15 month old on the plane. The last time I flew on a plane with an infant I learned that breastfeeding on take off and landing made for a calmer baby...I can only hope it goes as well this time around.  So check out my fix and let me know me know what you think. Want to know more about how it works? Check out Stitch Fix and make a profile or see my first post here.

Level 99 Rylan Cargo Short in Teal Green $68
Market & Spruce Sam Hi-Lo Short Sleeve Tee in Light Gray $44
I loved the shorts, but the color just didn't convince me, I felt limited to the types of tops I could pair them with. The feel of the shirt was awesome! But the fit was just a little too baggy for my taste.

WDW Wednesdays - MagicBands Are Finally Here!

Surprise! Guess what came in the mail? Our MagicBands! This means we are very close to heading to our magical vacation. So what exactly are MagicBands?

MagicBands are colorful, waterproof wristbands, see below, that you can quickly and easily touch to a sensor called a touch point. MagicBands allow you to travel lighter throughout your vacation.

Back to School with Minted.com

I received a free sample from Minted.com to facilitate this review, all opinions are my own

It's August, and for many that means time to think about back to school. It's been my experience that I need to label everything my kids leave the house with. I remember the days Madeline would come home with someone else's clothes, or sweaters, and even toys! Obviously she's not going to tell her teacher when she gets to bring a free toy home, LOL, ah kids. Don't worry we always return items that don't belong to us!
