We Pursued & We Found the Magic This Week

We have had a great week here at home and on Pursuing the Magic.  With the kids back to school and settled into their daily routine, we have been able to get the house back in order from the holidays.  Every new toy has found a new spot and everyone has learned how to play each of the new games they were given.  My goal this past week was to get organized so that I would have more time to blog, and it worked!

I have had a lot to share this week:

Monday, if you receive the WDW Daily News Newsletter, you will have seen my recent article for my column Making Magical Memories about my children's love of the Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party music.  Don't worry, if you haven't signed up yet, I will post my article here on Pursuing the Magic next week.

Also, Monday was Part 2 of my series In Pursuit of Pirates.  Deb from Focused on the Magic shared her best tips for photographing inside the attraction Pirates of the Caribbean, as well as share some fun photo ops outside of the attraction.  This series will continue Monday with Mary of Capturing Magical Memories as she shares tips for preserving your Pirates of the Caribbean photos and memories.

On Tuesday, I shared details of the new Cars 2 LEGO sets that have been released this month.  I also included a link to the new Star Wars LEGO sets being released at the end of the month.  Joey has laready started his Christmas list for next year with these kits!

Wednesday, of course, I joined in the Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop hosted by Deb at Focused on the Magic.  The theme was "Characters Great and Small," and like always there were so many great entries.

Friday, I hopped aboard Magical Blogorail Blue and shared my favorite World Showcase Pavilion in Epcot.  Rarely do we have a loop that there are overlaps in topics, but this time around, there is a clear favorite amongst the members of the blue line!

Today, you can find me over at The Disney Moms.  I will be contributing over there on the 14th of each month a craft that you can do with your children.  This month, with the release of Beauty and the Beast in 3D, I shared a Belle inspired project - Belle's Book Satchel.

To make it easier for you to find me on Facebook, Twitter and You Tube, I have added links in the left side bar.  Now that I will starting my trip report (yes, I know, very late!), you will see me sharing a lot more in the upcoming weeks through all those media outlets.

Well, I have very exciting news!  Last night I had a great chat with Chad and Mark of Days in the Park, which will be part of an upcoming episode of their podcast Days in the Parkcast.    I'll keep you posted when it is published, but in the meantime, make sure you check out their previous episodes.

How did you find Disney magic this week?  I would love to hear about it!

I can't wait to hear the Parkcast!! :)

I've been planning our "Jake and the Neverland Pirate's" B'day party all week... tonight we practiced being pirates and watched a few videos on!

Well, I did mention you in the Parkcast, though somehow I got tongue-tied on your blog name and had to repeat it.  Hopefully, it doesn't get cut out!  :-)  

Sounds like a lot of fun Disney magic at your house!  We love Jake and the Neverland Pirates.  Did you see Christina's ideas for a Jake and the Neverland Pirates movie night?  Very cute!  By the way, LOVE your pirates pic on Facebook - too cute!

I love her movie nights!  My movie nights include a bowl of popcorn if the kids are lucky! LOL!
