The Incredibles 2 Teaser Trailer is Here – and It Gave Me Goosebumps! | #Incredibles2 #DisneyPixar

Incredibles came out in 2004 and immediately skyrocketed to the top of my most favorite Disney movies ever list. I sort of have a thing for superheroes, in case you never noticed that. I loved everything about it – the family, the superpowers, the villains, the backstory… It was incredibly (no pun intended) well done. With the way it ended I knew that it left the door open for a second one, and I was dying to see that happen. When it was announced, I was thrilled – and now that time is almost here! Next year (June 15, 2018), Incredibles 2 will be hitting theaters, and the teaser trailer that was just released gave me goosebumps.

5 Disney Themed Adult Coloring Books that You NEED in Your Life! | #Disney #ColoringBooks

This job is not all sunshine and rainbows. Yes, I have some amazing experiences, but I also have lots and lots of deadlines. Throw having two girls that I love more than anything – but that are becoming quite the little sassypants – into the mix and life can get stressful. Something that always relaxes me and resets my mind is coloring. I try to sit down and do this at least once a week. I just grab my favorite gel pens, and set aside an hour or so. My favorite adult coloring books are all Disney themed. They are relaxing and fun, so I wanted to share them with you!

Race to Stores & Pick Up Cars 3 on Blu-ray Today to See Exclusive Bonus Content! | #Cars3Bluray #ThorRagnarokEvent

We are a huge Disney family, so of course we saw Cars 3 in theaters. It immediately became of my favorite Disney movies. The lesson that it teaches is incredible – and an important one for kids. Cars 3 is sure to touch your heart. You will laugh, and in true Disney fashion, you might even cry. I know I did. The blu-ray just hit stores today, but I was lucky enough to get an advance copy. I think that every single bonus feature is a must watch!

Vampirina is All About Family, Girl Power, & Acceptance: A Chat With Chris Nee! | #Vampirina #ThorRagnarokEvent

My daughters are head over heels in love with the latest addition to Disney Junior – Vampirina! We tuned in for the debut on October 1st and have been watching it ever since. It quickly became a favorite of mine as well because of the great lessons it teaches my girls. Even within the first episode it was clear that the creators of Vampirina wanted kids to know that everyone is the same on the inside. Yes, Vampirina is a vampire, but that doesn’t mean she can’t make friends. Every time she lets a friend in on her secret, they accept her for who she is.

Haul-o-Ween at Disney California Adventure PLUS Throw A Cars 3 Viewing Party | #Cars3Bluray #ThorRagnarokEvent

A couple of nights before I was heading off to LA for the Thor: Ragnarok press event, I was told some super exciting news! We would be going to Disney’s California Adventure & Disneyland – to have dinner at Cars Land and celebrate the fact that Cars 3 was coming out on digital and blu-ray. I had only been there once before, so I was really excited. We would only have a few short hours to explore, and there was so much I wanted to see. Especially since for the first time ever, Cars Land was all decorated for Haul-o-Ween. The decorations were incredible – and inspiring. They got me thinking about how I could throw a Haul-o-Ween themed viewing party for Cars 3 at home.

Why We Love Our Pley Disney Princess Box Subscription | #DisneyPrincess #Pley

As you likely know by now, my family and I are huge Disney fans. Several months ago we discovered a new Disney subscription box – the Pley Disney Princess box. It comes every two months and each box is themed to a Disney Princess. So far we have received Ariel, Rapunzel, and our latest box – Merida. This is something that my girls have been loving – and I think many kids would enjoy it. What a great gift for a Disney Princess fan this holiday season.

Inside The Disney Vacation Club Copper Creek Resort 1 BR Villa with Video Tour! | #CopperCreek #DVCMember

Not too long ago Disney Vacation Club invited us to come check out their latest resort – Copper Creek. It is located at Disney’s Wilderness Lodge – where the DVC also has Boulder Ridge Villas.  Of course, we jumped at the chance. We just purchased DVC at the Polynesian this past February and have been talking about adding on points at Copper Creek. Well, I can stay after our visit here, we will likely be doing so in the next couple of years. The sooner the better I say – I cannot wait to go back!

3 Reasons We Always Book A Dinner At Be Our Guest During Our Disney Trips | #BeOurGuest

You may already know that we are Disney Vacation Club members. We joined on our Disney Cruise in February 2017 – and I have no idea why we didn’t do it sooner. We vacation at Disney World at least twice a year, if not more. When you are 180 days out from your trip, you can make your dining reservations. There are several that we strive to get – and one of those is dinner at Be Our Guest. This is arguably one of the hardest reservations to make, and should always be this first one you shoot for. TIP: Try to book it for one of your last days vs. one of your first days for a better shot at it.

Disney Kingdom Hearts Funko GameStop Exclusive Box – UNBOXED! | #KingdomHearts #Funko #GameStop

My husband is a HUGE Kingdom Hearts fan. In fact, he is currently in the process of getting a Kingdom Hearts tattoo on his arm – and it is pretty fantastic. When we found out that GameStop was creating an EXCLUSIVE Kingdom Hearts Funko POP box, well, we were pretty darn excited. I have quite the Funko POP collection – OK, I will admit it, I am addicted to them. And my husband “lets me” keep his in my office, so I was all for him getting this box.

Create Memories That Will Last A Lifetime At The Happily Ever After Fireworks Dessert Party | #Disney #DisneyWorld

Something that I have always wanted to do while visiting Walt Disney World is attend a fireworks dessert party. In fact, we almost bought tickets to one during the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party this year. So imagine how excited we were to see a dessert party on our itinerary for our Copper Creek press event! I told my daughters right away and they started jumping up and down talking about all of the desserts they were going to eat. Honestly, I was more excited for the prime viewing spot for the Happily Ever After fireworks – but of course, the desserts were a great perk!

Own Disney’s Mickey Mouse: Merry & Scary on DVD Now! | #Disney #MickeyMouse

Whenever we go to Walt Disney World or on a Disney Cruise, one of our favorite things to do is watch the cartoons on the TV. So imagine how excited we were to see that a bunch of Halloween & Christmas themed ones were put on to a DVD. When we were sent a copy of Mickey Mouse: Merry & Scary, we opened it right up and put it on. Watching these cartoons totally transported us back to Disney World, and we felt like we were really there again. I just know this DVD will be watched whenever we are missing it there (which is all the time!).

5 Reasons to Book A Stay at Disney Vacation Club’s Copper Creek | #DVCMember #CopperCreek

My family and I were thrilled when Disney invited us to come check out their latest Disney Vacation Club Resort, Copper Creek, this past weekend. All I can say is WOW! Believe me when I say, you could spend your entire vacation at the resort and not get bored. But don’t get me wrong, no Disney trip is complete without at least a few days in the parks! However, Copper Creek is a great place to stay if you wish to spend a half day (or full day) hanging out at the resort to take a break from the busy of the parks.
