DIY Upcycling Challenge with Chick-fil-A & Valentines Day!


IMG_2387[1]

I have been honored and excited the last two years being a member of the Chick-fil-A Mom Panel. We “RUN 4 Chikin” at Chick-fil-A it is my families favorite.

We like to collect plastic containers, coffee cans, and many other items. It is fun to see a craft project in these throwaway items. They do not turn out all of the time but, it is fun to try!

When Chick-fil-A and the team came up with a soup container DIY Upcycling Challenge my family just could not wait to try! We were very excited about this project!

We took a few plastic flowers, heart picks, heart blocks, wooden hearts and two heart lights to make a Valentines Day flower arrangement in my Chick-fil-A Chicken Tortilla soup container.

We glued a piece of a floral foam brick into the bowl with a hot glue gun first. After that, we just put the flowers and heart picks into the floral brick. Next, the wood hearts and ribbon were glued into the arrangement. It was very simple to make. Our family likes easy crafts the best and had a great time making this arrangement!

The Walt Disney World®Resort Magic Band is MAGIC!


15740978_1389516131082258_7377908482153091661_n

 

What is a Walt Disney World® Resort Magic Band you are asking? I am going to tell you all about them. First, it is your room key when you stay on Disney property in one of the 20+ resorts on site. Next, it is your park pass for your tickets or annual pass.

When you make your Fasspass+ selections, they are on your band also. When you purchase the Disney’s Dining Plan your Magic Band keeps track of all meals and snacks, and how many you have left. All of your Disney photographer photo’s~~Memory Maker are kept on your Magic Band also!

Shopping is a breeze with Disney’s Magic Band. Just put a credit card up for your purchases, and you can buy all your souvenirs with it.

You just put Mickey to Mickey from your band to the hidden Mickey on the Magical posts or credit card machines, and just like pixie dust it’s done! Just look for the hidden Mickey! You can’t miss it because it is large.

Would you like to swim or take a shower? Go right ahead because Magic Bands are waterproof! Are they worth the extra $12.95 if you are not staying on property? In my opinion, they sure are! Disney’s Magic Bands make the above tasks so simple! My family and I wear them like a cool bracelet! We have all of the cool colors and sort them out during the Holidays. We wear orange and yellow for Halloween and red and green for Christmas. There are also many different Magic Bands you can purchase to suit your individual tastes. Disney also has collectible Magic Bands! Do not forget to look at the Magic Bandits to add to your Magic Band!

You can use a card if you like but, do not miss out on Disney’s Magic Bands I think you will enjoy the “Magic” they bring to a joyous Disney World® Resort vacation!

Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa


 

img_1043

I loved my stay at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa in March. I have stayed there several times before, but now being adjacent from the new Disney Springs is awesome! I also loved the bridge and waterways to Disney Springs on Village Lake. There is so much to do at Disney Springs! New shops and new restaurants it is spectacular.

Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is themed after a late 1800’s New York Saratoga Springs retreat famous for its spas and horse racing. There are horses on the decor in the villas. It makes me reminisce about the good old days when Grandma took my cousin and me to the horse races in Colorado. Oh, how I loved to watch the horse races and to ride the horses when I was young.

There is so much to do at this resort:

  1. Two fabulous feature pools with water slides, aqua, play areas and much more!
  2. Disney’s Lake Buena Vista Golf Course
  3. Senses–the spa at Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort
  4. Playgrounds
  5. Tennis
  6. Fishing
  7. Jogging trails

Disney’s Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is an enormous resort with many bus stops within the resort. So remember to add a little bit of time when traveling by bus. There is also a boat which goes to Disney Springs at the main building of the resort. The main building and large pool are located in the “Springs” area of the resort. The launch from Disney Springs to the main building of the resort is located at the new bridge area. I find it the most convenient to stay in the “Congress Park” area of the resort which is very close to the bridge and a short walk to Disney Springs. When you get off the bridge, you are close to the “Rainforest Cafe” area of Disney Springs. I love to eat at Earl of a Sandwich it is one of my favorites

For quick service meals and snacks on site visit the Artist’s Palate. There you can find flat bread, tasty sandwiches, and entrees. The Turf Club Bar and Grill is the resort’s sit down meal restaurant that serves American fare and is very delightful.

The next time you cannot decide where to stay Saratoga Springs Resort & Spa is a deluxe and beautiful resort to stay in. There are also Tree House Villas within the resort that have 3 Bedrooms! Last of all give it a try I think you will be impressed!

Why to Use a Travel Agent to Book your Walt Disney World® Resort Vacations!


This is a guest post from my friend Amy Hessel~~Owner of Just a Spoonful ofSugar she explains ten reasons in this post why to use her as a travel agent instead of booking your Walt Disney World® Resort vacation yourself:

Why use a travel agent for Disney when I can book it myself?

I get asked pretty frequently why anyone would book their vacation through me, when they can just do it themselves online. The short answer is that when you book with your local travel agent, you are supporting a small business, versus booking directly with Disney. It doesn’t cost anything extra to have me book a vacation than what it does when you go straight to the site, however, you are helping me to grow my business, and support my family when you book through me.

The long answer covers so much more though! Here are 10 reasons why you should book with me!

1. I will help you go through all the resort and dining options to find the best fit for you and your family.

2. I will research the best week for your family to go to Walt Disney World for the time of year you are interested in going.

3. Once you have booked your vacation, I will stay up to date with all discounts and promotions, and if one is released that you qualify for, I will re-book your vacation at the lowest cost possible.

4. I will set up your airport transfers with Magical Express, Disney’s free transportation, that takes you from the airport to your resort.

5. When you book with me, you are dealing with the same person from the beginning of the planning process, all the way through returning home from your trip. No waiting on hold, or dealing with several people to solve a problem!

6. Want to go to Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, or Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party? No problem, I will order those tickets for you.

7. I will help you navigate the My Disney Experience website to link your tickets and reservations, plus help you customize Magic Bands

8. For those who use the included Basic Planning Package, I will send you reminders for when you need to book your dining reservations, Fastpass+ reservations, and a final payment due reminder. (Our Essentials Package will be discussed in another post!)

9. I will help you decide if the Memory Maker is a good option for you, and if so, add it to your package.

10. I provide you with a guide to help navigate the parks, as well as general recommendations and touring suggestions.

Planning a great vacation to Walt Disney World can take hours of time. If you would rather leave it to the professionals, leave a comment below, and I will be happy to help you create a magical vacation for your family!
