It's Been a While ...

We have had a long (too long) hiatus from blogging! Now that we are planning our 2018 Walt Disney World vacation, we finally have the time to share our planning strategies and get back to blogging about how much we love Disney! This summer we will be updating the look of our blog and my children have asked to also write some posts - I am not telling them this, but it is a great way for them to work on their writing skills over the summer!  I am excited to see what they have to say!

Only 239 more days until our next Walt Disney World vacation!

Coming Soon ~ Cricut Frozen Cartridge

This is one little girl, who is going to be SO excited.
She loves to help me use my Cricut, and she LOVES
Disney's Frozen!
I can't believe it! Finally, Cricut is releasing a new Disney cartridge and, of course, it's Frozen.  I have already pre-ordered mine, and the numerous projects I hope to use it for are swirling through my mind.  You can pre-order it through the official Cricut site, or currently, you can pre-order it for $19.99 through Cartridges and More.  Not only does this cartridge include the images of all your favorite Frozen characters you can cut with your Cricut, there are drawing images for the Cricut Explore.  From Olaf to Sven to Kristoff to Anna and Elsa, there is no shortage of fun images to use in all kinds of projects, including t-shirts using Cricut's iron on material, vinyl to personalize water bottles, mugs and tumblers and party cards and decorations.  Really the projects are endless!

Who else is excited???  I cannot wait to get my hands on this cartridge and get started!  Now to wait for a Tangled, Brave, Princess and the Frog cartridge ... my collection would be complete if they ever released that!

To see all the Disney characters available on Cricut cartridges, you can find that on my

A Look Back at Our 2014 Disney Side for the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop

Focused on the Magic
Today I am joining the fun of the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by Focused on the Magic.  As we look back over 2014 and all the ways we showed our Disney Side, there is one photo that comes to mind.  It was my "little" Emily's seventh birthday, which of course, was an all out Frozen affair.  We built a fireplace out of boxes, red vinyl tableclothes and white electrical tape.  Add in a Princess Elsa/Emily and Olaf, and it made for a great way to celebrate my youngest's birthday!

From our family to yours, we hope your 2015 is filled lots of Disney magic and family fun!

To see what everyone else had to share as they looked back over 2014, head over to

Happy New Year!

Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort Rooms Now Accommodate Five!

Disney has just started allowing families of five to book rooms at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort.  The only other moderate that accommodates families of five is Disney's Port Orleans Riverside.  I am quite excited about this news.  As a family of five who cannot afford the cost of the deluxe resorts, this gives us more options to book a room we can fit in.  Even better, our 2015 vacation was actually booked at Port Orleans, but since we moved to the Caribbean, we were able to save money since we could get a standard room instead of a pool view room.

Of course, we love both of these resorts, so as long as we are at Disney, we are happy, but when we can save money and use it for something else, such as souvenirs or character meals, it makes for an even better vacation!  To see my reviews of both these moderate resorts that now accommodate families of five, use the links below:
