3 Reasons To Stay at Disney’s Art of Animation Hotel When Visiting Disney World | #Disney #Travel

We recently went on our second Disney Cruise. This time, we decided to head down the night before – you never know with February weather and Upstate New York. Mu husband and I normally like to try out a different hotel every Disney trip, and so this time we decided on the Art of Animation hotel. Now, we generally prefer to stay at a moderate or deluxe hotel, but since we were only going to be there one night we figured a value hotel made the most sense. We have since joined the Disney Vacation Club, so we likely will not be staying at another value resort again, however if we were going to, we would stay at Art of Animation for sure – and here is why!

Momotaro: Xander and the Dream Thief from Disney Publishing | #Momotaro

I love to read. Before I had kids I would spend countless hours reading each week. I can easily get lost in a good book and spend all of my free time reading it until I was done. Well, since having kids this has gotten tougher for me. My free time has been reduced to maybe an hour a day – but I still try to find the time to read. Especially when I come across a good book. That is why I made the time over the last few weeks to read Momotaro: Xander and the Dream Thief. Disney Publishing sent me an advance copy and I was super excited to check it out!

Sing-Along Beauty and the Beast In theaters This Weekend! | #BeOurGuest #BeautyandtheBeast

So, I have yet to make it to the theater with my daughters to see the new live action Beauty and the Beast. I know, I know, please don’t kill me. We tried! We live in a tiny little city and our small theater was sold out the first two weekends (I really should have planned in advance but showings NEVER sell out there), and then my daughter was sick. Life has been happening and I cry a little bit each day that goes by without having seen it. Well, all that is about to change because the Sing-Along version hits theaters this weekend and I am determined to see it – even if I need to drive over an hour to a bigger theater!

Head to The Walt Disney Family Museum this Spring & Summer | #DisneyFamilyMuseum #Disney

Last year, as part of a press trip, I was lucky enough to check out The Walt Disney Family Museum. It was so powerful for me as a Disney lover and I can’t even think about certain things I saw without tearing up. I can’t describe the feeling it felt. So if you are ever in San Francisco, I highly recommend swinging in and spending some time there. This Spring and Summer The Walt Disney Museum is adding some youth summer classes and a brand new exhibition that will make your trip even more worthwhile.

How to Make the Disney Vacation Club Work For You | #DVCMembers #DVC #Disney

While on board our Disney Cruise this year, we joined the Disney Vacation Club. This is something that we have been going back and forth on for years! We went to Disney World on our honeymoon and chatted with the DVC people for over an hour. We almost joined then, but honestly the initial sticker price had us nervous. Now we wish we bought back then because the savings are unreal!

Discover Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Digital with Roku & Disney Movies Anywhere | #TeamRebel #RogueOneDigital

Yesterday myself and some other pretty amazing bloggers had a Rogue One Viewing Party over on Twitter! We gave away some great prizes and had a blast doing it – all thanks to Disney and Roku! We were given a digital code for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and a Roku stick to watch it on – as well as some other amazing Star Wars goodies. I had seen the movie in theaters, but it is a great film and I had been dying to watch it again. I even made some cupcakes to enjoy while watching it! I hope you joined us – it was a blast!

Join Me on Twitter 3/26 for a Digital Viewing of Rogue One & Twitter Party! | #TeamRebel #RogueOneDigital

You might remember that I was lucky enough to interview the cast and see part of Rogue One last December on the Rogue One Press Event. It was an amazing time and since I had only been able to see about 28 minutes of the movie, I went to theaters opening day to watch the rest of it. The movie blew me away. In fact, I went back and saw it a second time. Since then I have been anxiously awaiting it’s release so that I can watch it again…and again…and again. Well that wait is finally over! TODAY, March 24th, you can watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere! And then on April 4th, you can pick up the Blu-ray Combo Pack or DVD in stores and online!

Planning Your Disney Cruise: 3 Day Versus 7 Day Voyage | #DisneyCruise #Disney

Last year I went on a Disney Cruise with my daughters and my mom. It was a short 3 days cruise but we had a blast. After talking to my husband about it, we decided to book a 7 day cruise – and we actually did this while I was still on board the Disney Dream. For us, the 3 day was such a tease – we wanted more! So I went in to the 7 day knowing that it would be a ton of fun, but I didn’t know how much I still wouldn’t want to leave after a week out at sea.

Kate and Mim-Min Go On 3 Musical Adventures In The New DVD Musical Mimiloo – Out Today! | #DisneyJr #KateandMimMim

My daughters are huge Kate & Mim-Mim fans. I cannot tell you how many times I have caught them spinning around in circles with their stuffed Mim-Mim singing “Kate and Mim-Mim, me and you, let’s sail away to Mimiloo!”. It is honestly adorable and I just want to freeze them in that moment so that they never grow up. My youngest got a Kate doll for Christmas this past year and she has been carrying it around ever since. We have several Kate & Mim-Mim DVDs and were really excited to learn about the release of the newest one, Musical Mimiloo.
