Disney Magic at Home
WDW Daily News
Published December 2010
Some of us are lucky enough to visit Walt Disney World several times a year, but though we all may dream of that, it isn’t possible for everyone. We used to travel every year to Disney, but now with three children and our oldest just starting school, we are planning to start going every other year. So in between trips, there are many things we do here at home to remind of us of Disney. There are some quick and easy things we do everyday, such as wear Disney clothes, use our refillable mugs from our resort and spot hidden Mickeys here at home. We also like to listen to Disney music (you can read more about our favorite Disney music in my post Music to My Ears ~ Disney Music That Is!), watch Disney movies and read Disney books. There are Disney photos, scrapbooks and guide books out year round that the kids can choose to look through to remember previous trips or plan for future ones.
One of the things I personally enjoy is making some of my favorite recipes from Walt Disney World. I have found many online, but have some that I was sent simply by e-mailing Disney once we returned home. You can also request them right at the restaurants in Walt Disney World. One of the places that I have found a substantial list of recipes is at All Ears. The list includes theme park, resort and even Food and Wine Festival recipes. If you are looking for more interactive recipes, make sure you check out my fellow Magical Blogorail member, Kristen, at Cooking with Mickey. She has plenty of videos showing you how to make some of these recipes. If it wasn't so snowy here, I would be making a recipe from one of her videos - Konk Cooler. It makes me look forward to summer!
So even though we can’t experience the “in park” magic of Disney as often as we like, we have had a lot of fun keeping the magic alive at home.
What is your favorite way to keep the magic alive between trips?
