Why We Love Our Pley Disney Princess Box Subscription + Win One Of Your Own! | #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.

Step Onto Another Planet When You Visit Pandora – The World of Avatar at Disney World | #VisitPandora

In case you have not picked up on it yet, my family is big in to Walt Disney World. We are Disney Vacation Club members and visit at least twice a year – despite the fact that we are all the way across the country in Upstate New York. Animal Kingdom has always been a half day park for us – full day if we decide to check out all the animals and take our time. But now things have changed. Honestly, we could probably spend an entire day in new part of the park, Pandora – The World of Avatar, especially taking in to consideration those pesky wait times that come along with brand new rides opening.

These Are The Droids You’re Looking For: Sphero’s New BB-9E & R2-D2! | #StarWars #Sphero

It is no secret that the Smiths are a family of geeks. We love it all – especially technology. Sphero recently released some new App-enabled Droids and we have been in awe of them! I mean, what Star Wars nerd doesn’t want their own R2-D2, BB-8, or the new BB-9E to follow them around and do their bidding. We were thrilled when Sphero sent us a couple of these to check out – and we can’t stop playing with them!

4 Reasons To Book The Garden Grill for Breakfast At Epcot at Walt Disney World | #DisneyWorld

The Garden Grill is always on our must do dining list when we visit Disney World. In my opinion, it is one of the best character meals that there is, for several different reasons. A Smith Family visit to Disney World would just not be the same without it. My in-laws will be hitting Disney World with us in a few months and we knew right away the one breakfast we had to make sure they did not miss is The Garden Grill. I am thrilled to say that we were able to book it – and cannot wait to show them why we love it so much!

Easily Create A Disney Movies Under The Stars Movie Night | #Disney #DisneyUnderTheStars

This summer, my family and I hosted several Disney movies under the stars nights. These were a total blast to put together! I themed our snacks, decor, and activities around the films that we were watching. It would only take us a few minutes to set up our screen and projector – and this quickly became something we tried to do every week or so. We have always enjoyed a good family movie night, but there is quite like having one under the stars.

My family and I were thrilled to find out that we were going to be able to attend the 2017 Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. Our trip was planned for August so we thought for sure we were going to miss it! But the party started on August 25th this year and thanks to Disney, we were able to attend! We went in 2015 and it is something we have been dying to get back to. It is hands down one of the funnest Disney Events because there is so much going on. Here are all the things you can experience this year!

Brand New Trailer & Poster for Disney•Pixar’s COCO Revealed! | #PixarCoco #DisneyPixar

Who doesn’t love a good Disney•Pixar movie? I mean, you are guaranteed to feel love, sadness, and to cry – a lot – for both of those reasons. Take Inside Out for example – I still cannot hear the words “Bing Bong” without shedding a tear or twenty. But that is what makes me love these films so much. They make me feel things. And from the moment I saw the first glimpse of Coco at the D23 Expo in 2015, I knew that it would do the same. The latest trailer and poster just came out and WOW, they have me even more excited for this movie than I already was.
