Episode 5: Evacuated from Great Movie Ride & Journey of the Little Mermaid – Walt Disney World – September 2016

Episode 5: Evacuated from Great Movie Ride & Journey of the Little Mermaid – Walt Disney World – September 2016

One great thing about Hollywood Studios is the unexpected meet & greets!  Sure there are some set spots for meeting some of your favorite characters, but there are also places where different characters appear throughout the day.  One of these is in front of the Chinese Theater or The Great Movie Ride. We were lucky this time to catch Stitch and Max with no wait!  Max was especially exciting since he is a rare character to find!  We enjoyed meeting…

Review of Jedi Training Academy: Trials of the Temple plus Full Show

We are huge fans of Jedi Training Academy and especially of the newest version Trials of the Temple.  This is a wonderful show that brings the kids (ages 4-12) into the world of Star Wars.  They are broken into two groups and trained to use the force and taught the skills to use a light saber against the dark side. Cameron and Colby were in the group who fought against Darth Vader while the other group were matched against the…

Making Disney Pin Shadow Boxes & Our Disney & Music Collections

We have been pin trading for several years now and had a bunch of pins that were just sitting in a box when we were not at Disney.  So we finally decided to do something with them.  We went to the store to buy premade shadow boxes, but they were about $15-20 each and we knew we needed at least four.  So I decided, we can make these ourselves!  And after a little thought, it was very easy! We took…
