You might know this already, but I am a huge fan of Harry Potter. I have read the books several times now, and seen all of the movies multiple times as well. Recently, I introduced my daughters to the books and movies, and it is so much fun living it through their eyes. So when I got the chance to visit Universal Studios Hollywood, you know I was most excited about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter! If you get the chance to visit (which you totally should!), here are 5 things you absolutely HAVE to do!
You guys probably already know that I am a Disney Vacation Club member. I have mastered the FastPass+ at Walt Disney World even getting 16 FastPasses over 3 parks in one day before. But Disneyland is a whole different animal. So when I first heard about the MaxPass (and the fact that is was only $10), well, I knew I had to try it out and see if it was worth it. Well, it is. Hands down. And here is why!
My family has had a tradition of going to see Disney on Ice yearly for quite a while now. I used to go as a child and it is some of my fondest memories. So as soon as I had kids, I knew this was going to be something we were going to do whenever it comes to town. My girls have been loving it, and look forward to the winter because we know that is when Disney on Ice comes. This year the show is Disney On Ice presents Worlds of Enchantment – and we get to bring one of their friends to opening night! They can’t wait!
I hope you were following along this week as I attended the #RalphBreaksTheInternetEvent! It was so much fun! Not only did I learn a lot about the movie and do some really cool things (be sure to stay tuned for all the coverage!), I walked the red (although technically it was blue) carpet at the world premiere – and then hit up the after party! As you probably know, there is a Disney Princess scene in this movie. Which means I was rubbing elbows with the princesses, and many more celebs, at the after party!
I have some exciting news! If you follow me on social media, you might already know this, but I am off to LA once again – this time for Ralph Breaks The Internet! Wreck-It Ralph has been one of my favorite movies for quite some time now. I just love the dynamic between Vanellope and Ralph, and yes, I do still cry when I watch it. I can’t help it! It has such a sweet ending. While in LA, I will be doing do many amazing things, read on for all the juicy details!
Something my family tries to do every year is attend Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. It is truly something we look forward to. Because we have been so often, I was really excited to discover several changes for the 2018 party! Of course we took part in them, as well as some of our favorite things that we do each year. Here are my tips and tricks to get the most out of your 2018 MNSSHP experience.
My family and I visit Walt Disney World a lot and one of the dinners we never miss out on is one at Be Our Guest. When we found out they were changing their menu and experience to be similar to Cinderella’s Royal Table, we were skeptical. Instead of a larger menu, guests now will choose an appetizer, entree, and dessert from a smaller menu. There is also a fixed price – $55 for adults, and $35 for children. We decided to check it out during our most recent visit. Was it worth it? Read on to find out.
I know I am not the only one that is looking forward to Galaxy’s Edge (also known as Star Wars Land) opening at Walt Disney World (and Disneyland!). Ever since they started building, I do my best to get some sneak peeks while I am visiting Disney. Just this August, not only could I see a lot of the progress from the Slinky Dog Dash coaster in Toy Story Land, I found some of the merchandise already available for purchase!
One of my family’s favorite Walt Disney World events to attend is Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. There are several reasons why, but the top one is all the amazing meet and greets that are really rare to find. Some of them are more popular than others, so you can expect to wait a long time. The character meet and greets change yearly, but I already attended the 2018 party. So here is my ultimate guide to the 2018 Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party character meet and greets.
