Planning a trip to the most magical place on Earth?!

SAVE TONS with this list of Things to Buy BEFORE Going to the Parks!!

  • Ponchos/Umbrella: It’s better to have them and spend a few bucks now than to be stuck in the park without them and have to drop a pretty penny on some rain gear! Granted, these aren’t a necessity BUT, when you’re standing in a line that has zero covering and you don’t want to give up your place, you’ll be super thankful you have ponchos on-hand, shoved inside of your bag!Screen Shot 2018-09-04 at 9.35.59 AM
  • Autograph Books & Pens: We’ve used this as a way to surprise the kids with our trips several times! Get them early to save on having to buy right when you enter the park!Screen Shot 2018-09-04 at 9.34.44 AM
  • Themed Cups: Those damn plastic cups can cost a fortune! Grab some super awesome themed cups now so that you don’t have to pay double the price later! BONUS* Did you know Disney gives FREE water?! Not in a bottle but, you can fill your own cup or bottle with a free water any time, any where!
    Screen Shot 2018-09-04 at 9.43.56 AM
  • Plush Toys: Buying your plush toys now versus inside the parks or anywhere on Disney property can save you a small FORTUNE! Buy your iconic plush toys before your trip and surprise the littles with them as you’re going in to the park or once you arrive for your stay! They’ll be just as excited and won’t know the difference!
  • Misting Fan: These things are basically a MUST any time of the yer here in Florida. Especially when you’re standing in the beating sun in lines for rides. Don’t spend $30 on a misting fan in the park! They sell ones on Amazon that are equally as awesome for less than half the price!Screen Shot 2018-09-04 at 9.35.12 AM
  • Hats & Ears: I have a handful of awesome Disney hats that I love! ALL of which weren’t even purchased on Disney property! I have two of the same hat in different colors, and a Minnie hat with ears for the price of ONE hat inside the parks! Shop Amazon, Target, and Etsy for ears!Screen Shot 2018-09-04 at 9.34.34 AM
  • Sun Protection: This is probably on all of my Disney packing lists because it’s extremely important! It’s obvious as to why it’s on all of my lists but, it’s here because buying it beforehand (including a couple of extra bottles) will save you more than you think! Sunscreen on Disney property basically sells for the cost of an organ on the black market! Don’t make the mistake of forgetting or not packing enough for your entire trip!
  • Nifty Gadgets: Things like stroller hooks, clip-on fans, cup holders for strollers, wet bags, and other nifty gadgets should always be purchased before you head out for your trip! Being stuck in a rut and having to find the nearest Buy Buy Baby will not only be frustrating but, it will also end up costing you in the long run!Screen Shot 2018-09-04 at 9.36.14 AM
  • Bubbles & Glow Sticks: When the park goes dark and the sidewalk carts come out, you’ll be thankful you have a pack of glow sticks with you! $15-25 per light up toy and glow necklace really adds up!
  • Disney Wearables: Disney tees, Princess dresses, Costumes, and other Disney wearable are EASY to find at places like Amazon, Target, JCPenney, and even the Disney Outlet stores! Snag some before your trip!
  • Small Souvenirs: Small things like keychains, decals, figurines, and other smaller souvenirs can also be purchased online for you to store in your suitcase and give to the kids on your way out to the parks!
  • Trading Pins: You can find trading pins in bulk on Amazon, Ebay, and Facebook Marketplace for low cost! Snag some to fill your trading collection before you go!
  • Lanyard: Although the lanyards you find in stores or online may not come with a starter pack of trading pins, you can snag one for cheap and focus on just pins in the park if you choose not to buy them beforehand!

Dinsey Boardwalk-0734

Dinsey Boardwalk-0749Dinsey Boardwalk-0752

You won’t regret this one!

5 REASONS to Visit Cape Canaveral National Seashore | + Daddy & Me Matching Swim

5 REASONS to Visit Cape Canaveral National Seashore | + Daddy & Me Matching Swim

cape canaveral seashore pin 1

Are you a Florida Native or someone who visits the Sunshine State for it’s amazing beaches and breathtaking ocean views?! Yes? Yes! I have the BEST kept secret beach for families that will spoil you with the greatest, stress-free beach day ever!

RandSon (34 of 34)RandSon (32 of 34)RandSon (29 of 34)

As much as I think I’ll hate myself for sharing this sweet spot, I know too well that sharing is caring and every family deserves a beach day as awesome as the ones we have!

For the last few years, we’ve been taking the boys to Cape Canaveral National Seashore. Let me tell you, even on it’s busiest holiday weekends this beach spot is filled more with sand and sun than people. We used to steer clear of the beach during holiday weekends or peak season but, no more! It doesn’t matter the time of day, we can always find parking and a private space on the beach without catching shade from the neighbor’s umbrella!

RandSon (28 of 34)RandSon (27 of 34)

BUT, there are far more reasons to visit Canaveral National Seashore! Read on for 5 reasons you should make the trip with your family!

RandSon (26 of 34)RandSon (25 of 34)

5 Reasons to Visit Canaveral National Seashore:

  1. Several Parking Areas: Even on it’s busiest days, we can always find parking in one of the parking lots! Just don’t go all the way to the very last parking area! You may catch a glimpse of a few nudies!
  2. Clean Showers & Bathrooms: This is a HUGE plus for us! When we’re all wrapped up for the day and ready to head home, nothing makes this easier than clean and accessible bathrooms and showers! We have a routine down when it comes to this part of the day all thanks to the showers and potties! Dad helps shower the boys while I rinse their swim suits and get them changed back into dry clothes!
  3. ZERO Beach Drivers: Thats right! There is ZERO driving on this area of the beach which makes a beach day with the boys stress-free, ten times more fun, and gives the boys more freedom to play as they wish! (Which we all know, in parent’s terms basically means a longer sleep afterwards! haha)
  4. Quiet & Low Populated: There are never more than a couple handfuls of families or couples on the beach here at the Seashore and because of that, this is one of our most favorite places to visit! We don’t spend all of our time worrying about losing an eye on the boys because there aren’t hundreds of people crowding the beach and we always have more of a private area on the beach under our umbrella! Not to mention, we can spread out so much more on the beach with our play toys, towels, wagon, and beach necessities!
  5. Brand New Boardwalks: After last year’s hurricane season, some of the boardwalks had damage that needed replacing! We love walking the brand new boardwalks down to the beach area and don’t ever have to worry about whether or not the boys have shoes or will get a splinter from running their hands along the rails!

 

Of course, all of the boys turned heads during our last trip to Canaveral National Seashore in their matching swim from Robert & Son! How freaking cute are they, right?!

You guys know what a sucker I am for matching swim wear or anything I can put the boys in that makes them look more like triplets than brothers with 2 years in between them! The fact that even dad can get in on the matching action literally just yanks at my heart strings every time we leave the house in them!

Look at all the beach action they had in these suits on our day at the Seashore!

SPEND LESS at Disney with THIS FREE & SUPER EASY TIP!!

SPEND LESS at Disney with THIS FREE & SUPER EASY TIP!!

Disney GC Pin 1.png

I know how it is. You’re in the parks and all you smell is the delightful aroma of cotton candy and popcorn being misted into the air (yes, thats actually what’s going on here) and you cave. First expense: A $10 snack only minutes after you’ve walked through the gates. THEN, you convince your kids, “Okay, no more spending until we ride at least three rides. THAT’S what we’re here for after all!” EHHH, wrong. You exit almost every ride into a gift shop, and guess what? EACH gift shop sells entirely different, equally awesome stuff that your kid is guaranteed to be drooling over! To keep from a melt down, and because you’re equally as excited to be a kid again in this magical world, you cave for a second time.

Next, ohhhhh next, the smell of a turkey leg (which, by the way actually isn’t turkey?!) passes over you via a vendor cart less than ten feet away and has the shortest line you’ve seen all day so, what the hell?! Let’s get a turkey leg, 2 Mickey ice cream bars, and toss in one of those awesome souvenir popcorn bins too!

By the time you wrap up the day, you’ve stopped for two, maybe three meals, 6 water bottles, more snacks than you can count, 4 Mickey Bars, have a stroller with 3 (probably more like 6) of those beautiful blue Walt Disney World bags with the castle on it (you know the one), and a wallet drier than a 5 year drought. Where did all that money go?! (You know, the money you brought JUST IN CASE but, promised yourself you wouldn’t actually spend.) Come to think of it, where did all these receipts come from?! And where’s my credit card? Not this one, that other one. Where did I use it last? GAH, the ferry back to the monorail is so quiet right now but, I’m too exhausted to even look for that card and I’m sure it’s here somewhere…At least I hope it is.

Does that sound like you? Maybe even a little?

Here’s the thing: Can you imagine yourself not having to juggle wads of cash, several credit cards mixed in with your hotel room key, receipts, and everything else stacked in your wallet while juggling kids, lines, and melting ice cream bars?! I can! And I HAVE!

Are you ready for it?!

My one and only tip to limiting unplanned spending in the park while foregoing the constant juggle of your bottomless wallet!

Drum roll…

The Disney Gift Card!

Disney GC.png

I know, right? SO SIMPLE yet, so incredibly life changing when it comes to spending in the parks!

Before your next Disney Vacation, head to Target (5% off with Red Card. YEP Even on Disney GC!)) or Shop Disney online and grab a gift card (increments of $25-500).

Your gift card can be used for almost everything on Disney owned property and will make your life SO MUCH EASIER when it comes to juggling the many ways you can empty your bank account AND will help eliminate the extra unplanned spending in the parks!

Want to know how we use our gift card to it’s full potential?

  1. Set a spending limit for each child. Sometimes, rather than purchasing one single gift card and keeping track of the total as we spend, I’ll get a gift card for each boy and write each boys’ name on their cards in permanent marker! It makes things easier if we’ve split up or when one kid wants something at one store and the other spends somewhere else!
  2. Utilize the Disney Dining plan! UH-MAY-ZING! I know this is totally separate from a Disney Gift Card BUT, with the Disney Dining plan you don’t need to spend inside the park on snacks, drinks, and meals! One less reason to pull out your credit card or swipe a gift card!
  3. Pre-plan cash purchases, if any. Street vendors who sell light-up toys, balloons, and some food vendors/carts only take cash. If you’re utilizing the Disney Dining Plan, snacks shouldn’t be a worry here (including Mickey Bars, Pretzels, Dole Whip, and more!) but, if you think a light up toy or Mickey balloon is a must, plan for that expense prior to entering the park and keep that cash in a separate, designanted envelope! (Light up toys average between $12-25 & Balloons are $10-15)
  4. Make it your only option. Don’t bring any other form of spending into the park except one EMERGENCY card, and your small amount of pre-planned, designated cash.
  5. Securely separate your gift cards from other necessary items. Keep from juggling too many items in your wallet by putting your hotel room key, ID, and other necessary items in a separate but, equally accessible wallet or baggy! I like to keep our room keys, designated cash envelope, paperwork for tickets, etc. in the internal zipper pouch of our backpack and, would be lying if I didn’t admit that I own and use a fanny pack to easily access our gift cards!

That’s it! My single, incredibly simple yet, totally useful tip for less juggling and even less spending in the parks!

 

Let me know below if you use this little tip during your next Disney vacation!

5 Things To Know Before Jedi Training at Walt Disney World

5 Things To Know Before Jedi Training at Walt Disney World

Being a mama of boys with Star Wars making a huge come back via Disney, Jedi Training was a must do on our list for Hollywood Studios during our recent visit!

Because all of the Star Wars attractions are so popular at the park, there are a few things you need to know when planning your day if your visit includes the uber epic Jedi Training.

  1. RESERVE. Make sure to reserve your spot ASAP! When entering the park, head towards the Indiana Jones Adventurers Outpost-most people arrive 45 minutes before the Hollywood Studios opens to get their spot. *We got lucky and stumbled upon an executive cast member when asking where to find Jedi Training sign up (around 11am) who radioed in our rsvp for us!
  2. AGE REQUIREMENT. This interactive show is only available for children ages 4-12. If your child is not comfortable leaving your side to be on a…

Mama, Say Goodbye to Swim Suit Anxiety! LIME RICKI:  Full Coverage without Losing Style!

Okay, Okay. It may not seem like it because in this suit you just can’t see them (which is totally the point) but, I am scarred from here to the moon with stretch marks. I’ve searched for yearsssss to find swim wear that covers my number one swim suit insecurity and finally with Lime Ricki I have found everything I need in tummy coverage without losing style!


Lime Ricki Swim Wear-0407-2Lime Ricki Swim Wear-0408-2Lime Ricki Swim Wear-0412-2

It is such a struggle to go to the beach with the boys or hit the pool while we’re on a trip without feeling like I need Linc’s little body covering me while I carry him or have to wrap myself in a towel because I just cant handle the stares. I swear people look at my stomach like I was attacked by a black bear or something.

Lime Ricki Swim Wear-0413-2Lime Ricki Swim Wear-0416-2Dinsey Boardwalk-0728

This suit has given me all of my swim suit confidence back! So much so that i wore it all the way up and down the boardwalk without even a shed of doubt!

So, to say that Lime Ricki killed it with their Candy Striped Bottoms and Olive Scoop Neck Peplum Top for this mama, would be an understatement!

Get your littles ready for a ROCKIN’ time at Disney on Ice: Mickey’s Search Party with these UPDATED 10 tips!

DOI1.jpg

DOI Pin

Tip #1. Purchase + pick up your tickets in advance. (Make sure to use a discount code on tickets! )

Go the week of and hit up the box office at your show’s arena to save time and skip lines by picking up your tickets in advance! Save 20% off select seats with code SAVE20. Not valid on premium VIP seating. Hurry for the best available seats! Code expires September 6, 2018.

Tip #2. SEARCH LIKE MICKEY and Scout parking areas.

While you’re picking up your tickets in advance, ask the box office attendant or scout out the best parking areas for the night of your show! Make sure to arrive early the night of, to snag a close spot!

Tip #3. Eat beforehand.

No-one likes to spend outrageous prices on snacks from concession so, take the family out for a nice meal before you head to the arena to keep from rumbling bellies and empty wallet syndrome! Of course, bring a little cash or budget a small amount of spending for a small shared snack or fun themed-drink during the show!

Tip #4. Be prepared with your children’s necessities.

Does your little have sensitive hearing? Pack headphones.

The show falls 30 minutes after bedtime? Put a lovie or small blanket in your bag.

Pack for your family’s needs and anticipate worst case scenarios! (Diaper blow outs, thirsty babes, etc.)

DOI 2

Tip #5. Dress for the event.

TONS of kids dress up for the big show! To make sure your little fits right in, make sure to dress them in their favorite Disney tee or costume!

Tip #6. Locate bathrooms on your seat level.

Make sure to locate the nearest bathroom to your seat and make a stop there before finding your spot for the show!

Tip #7. Set behavior expectations.

Let your kids know prior to walking into the arena what is expected of them. (i.e. no kicking chairs, keep hands to yourself, staying in their seat unless they’re on mom or dad’s lap, try use the bathroom before + after the show and during intermission, spending limit on souvenirs, etc.)

Tip #8. Make a plan for souvenirs.

If you plan on letting your littles choose a souvenir before or after the show, prepare them with a spending limit or budget. The prices can get out of hand at times and you don’t want to be walking back to the car after your show with $150 in light up wands and cotton candy.

Tip #9. Pack binoculars.

No matter how near or far your seat is, binoculars always add an extra touch of fun to your experience! Grab a pair of these super cute kid-friendly ones for each little to save yourself a mid-show battle!

Tip #10. Pack light + prepare for a security check.

Your show is only a couple hours long so, make sure to only pack the necessities and be prepared for a security check when you arrive!
