{Walt Disney World} New Disney Tips and Ideas

As I continue to plan our upcoming trip to Disney, I’m still in awe of all the new Disney ideas out there.  I mean, there are thousands of bloggers out there who primarily write about Disney, they visit regularly and have wonderful tips and advice for newbies.  I thought I had read just about all of those posts and knew everything there was to know the last time we went to Disney.  But in two short years, so much has changed and there are so many “new” ideas out there.  Thanks to Pinterest, this has taken up quite a bit of my time lately!  So here’s a quick roundup of some new Disney tips and ideas that I recently found.

New Disney Tips and Fun Ideas for Disney 2015

For example, now that the girls are a bit older, they are more interested in meeting all of the characters!  I love this list of creative things to ask the characters from Sahlin Studio.  Like, ask to see Cinderella’s shoes!  Do her feet hurt?!?! This blog also has ideas for creative picture poses with characters.

Considering that Downtown Disney is taking up the majority of our “rest day,” I was really interested in this post on things to do in Downtown Disney from Can’t Google Everything.  I love that there are so many free ideas!! But bring a towel or a change of clothes so you can play in the fountains….

One of these days, I’m gonna convince Dave to take me on one of the Behind the Scenes tours at Disney.  I’m just fascinated about the details of the park, and how Disney caters to the 1%.  For example, in the Tower of Terror hotel lobby {while you are in line}, there is a game of Mahjong that was being played when it’s players disappeared.  Not only was the game abandoned, but Disney got two experts in the game to actually play, and stop the game at a really interesting and pivotal point.  And only about 1% of Disney travelers would notice and appreciate that!  Find out some more Secrets and Fascinating Facts from Roadtrippers…be sure to read the comments for even more!

And last but not least…Best verified park ticket prices…$13 off average.  Undercover Tourist  I subscribed to their newsletter, and got the most up to date pricing and coupon codes in it.  And they will mail you your park tickets {actually plastic cards}, so you don’t have to go to Will Call.

We are ready!!

September 2015 Cleaning Calendar

I don’t know about you, but this month is looking pretty clean for me.  We traveled for much of August, and now that the kids are in school full time, there’s no one home to make messes!!  Ok, ok, so maybe it’s still a little messy….a girl can dream, can’t she?

We got a little tease of fall this week with temperatures only in the mid 80’s and a breeze.  It would have been lovely, but it was also rainy and muggy.  But I’m looking forward to the seasons changing and being able to open up the windows for some fresh air!  Maybe I’ll add cleaning windows to the calendar in October!
