Disney Social Media Moms 2012 – Pirate Dinner

The first evening of the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration of 2012 started off with a cocktail reception and pirate themed dinner.  The cocktail reception was for conference attendees. It gave us all some time to talk, catch up and of course, hug. The presentation highlighted Disney's Hawaii resort, Aulani and Adventures by Disney. I'm dreaming of a long stay at Aulani by either using our Disney Vacation Club points or saving up vacation time and money. And I'd love to do an Adventures by Disney Italy trip while my daughter, Sammi is still young. Shortly after the reception, we … [Read more...]

My Disney Dream Continues

I've been dreaming about Disney since I was a little girl who made her first trip to Walt Disney World. My parents and my younger sister took a trip from the Bronx to Orlando by train. We stayed in a cheesy off site motel and had to take the hotel bus back and forth to get to the parks. I didn't care one bit! I was bit by the Disney bug as soon as we entered the Magic Kingdom. Even in the heat of August, I remember begging my parents to stay longer when we were getting ready to get the last bus back to the motel. I loved it all - the E ticket rides, the characters, the Florida orange juice … [Read more...]

Last Minute Disney World Trip

We arrived home late today from a last minute Disney World trip. My husband, being the awesome man that he is, surprised me and Sammi with reservations at the Caribbean Beach Resort for Saturday night to Monday. We've been going through a lot of stressful days and nights worrying about Sammi, so he thought we needed to just get away. And he was right! Disney World is favorite place to visit and all of our stress seems to melt away as soon as we drive through the Walt Disney World gate. Shawn did have some trouble getting this last minute Disney trip planned though because so many of the … [Read more...]

Can’t I Move Into Disney World?

We just got home a while ago from second home at Disney. Since we're DVC members, we tet to hear, "Welcome Home" when we get to our resort and when we check in. We had a great time as usual. I can never tire of the place although we've been there hundreds of times. We also didn't get to do all of the things we wanted to try again. We wanted to try some of the boating trips at Old Key West Resort, a horse carriage ride at Fort Wilderness and go to the Pirate and Princess Night. We didn't get to do any of those things. We did go to the Hoop De-Doo Show and Dinner. That was a blast! I … [Read more...]

Getting Ready To Leave

My life = disorganized, unbelievable, craziness. This week has been of course one of the busiest in months. Tomorrow (today actually) I have about a million things to do. And we leave for Disney World on Sunday. This always happens. It's not like I don't know what to pack or what to bring but it's a lot of work getting ready. It's not like a normal vacation where you just pack your clothes and personal stuff. Since we own at Disney Vacation Club, I have to pack groceries, some cooking supplies, things we need for the parks, for the pool, and for the room. Our room has a kitchen with pots … [Read more...]
