Elena of Avalor: Realm of the Jaquins DVD Available August 7th! | #ElenaofAvalor

My daughters LOVE Elena of Avalor. Every time we go to Disney World, which is a lot, they just HAVE to meet her. My youngest will binge watch her show over and over. I think she actually knows every word by heart. Every single word – of the series. So when we were sent an advance copy of the latest DVD, Realm of the Jaquins, we were thrilled. It was opened and put in the DVD player immediately. And then it made its way to the mini-van where it is now on repeat.

Make Vacation Planning Easy as 1, 2, 3 with TripAdvisor! | #TripAdvisor #Vacation

If you follow me on social media then you already know I went to Hawaii a couple of weeks ago. When I was first planning this getaway with my husband, I turned to Google. I was quickly overwhelmed by all of the activity options and trying to track down reliable reviews. We only had a few days to spend there and I wanted them to be perfect. Then I was told to check TripAdvisor and I was blown away! Using TripAdvisor, we could plan our entire vacation – from hotel, to flights, to all of our activities. We can even check out what restaurants we might want to eat out while away (and we found some great ones!). This site has changed the way I will be booking travel from now on.

The 5 Best Quick Service & Sit Down Service Restaurants at Walt Disney World | #DisneyDining #Disney

My family and I spend quite a bit of time at The Most Magical Place on Earth – Walt Disney World. Our friends and family know this, and I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked for tips and tricks when visiting. I have written about a lot of this on my site, so be sure to browse my Disney Planning section – but something I have been asked about a lot recently is Disney Dining. I decided to finally sit down and write about my favorite 10 restaurants – 5 quick service and 5 sit down service.

Disney California Adventure Halloween

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.

Avengers Infinity War bonus features review

Avengers: Infinity War Bonus Features + Win A MARVELous Prize Pack from GameStop! | #InfinityWar #Avengers

Avengers: Infinity War is now out on digital (eek!) and comes home on blu-ray August 14th. One of my favorite things about a movie’s home release is all the bonus features that we get. From gag reels, to deleted scenes, to commentary – there are so many amazing things we can learn about our favorite films. When I first saw the list of bonus features that would be a part of the Avengers: Infinity war home release, I was floored. Each and every one sounded more exciting and amazing than the last. It looks like we will really get to dive in to Thanos’ background. But for me, the director commentary is where it is at.

If you know anything about me, you know that I am a HUGE Marvel fan. You also might know that I recently changed to the Keto way of eating. In just two and a half months, I have lost over thirty pounds and have a whole new lease on life! My energy and confidence are renewed! So when I decided to create a super fun Avengers: Infinity War themed dessert, I knew it had to be Keto friendly so that I could enjoy it too.
