Episode 10: Our Pirate Adventures at MNSSHP – Walt Disney World – September 2016

After a fun in the sun at Blizzard Beach, we head back to Port Orleans Riverside to turn into pirates!  Well pirate costumes anyway…  Once dressed in full pirate garb, makeup included, we hopped the bus over to Magic Kingdom for our family’s first ever Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. We arrived before the party actually began and took in the decorations and excitement of not only Halloween, but our first time in Magic Kingdom of the trip!  For…

Episode 9: Fun in the Sun at Blizzard Beach Water Park – Walt Disney World – September 2016

Episode 9: Fun in the Sun at Blizzard Beach Water Park – Walt Disney World – September 2016

We always spend at least one day of our Disney World trip at a water park… this year we chose Blizzard Beach. The Disney water parks are the best we have ever been to! Details, Details, Details… is what makes them so great! Disney takes the theme and immerses it into every aspect. Blizzard Beach is a winter wonderland in the middle of central Florida. In our opinion, this is the better of the two water parks for kids because…

LOUISIANA LIFE: Our Family’s Christmas Game & Christmas Concert

This week for Vlogmas, we wanted to share our family Christmas game:  Prep – buy 20-25 inexpensive gifts or candy that kids will like (I go to the dollar store for this) and a couple of rolls of saran wrap.  Start with the largest in the middle and wrap a ball of plastic wrap around it and tear it off.  Then pick another toy and wrap that toy and the original ball of plastic wrap together with another long piece…

Episode 8: Breakfast at Chef Mickey’s – Walt Disney World – September 2016

We had breakfast at Chef Mickey’s for the first time on our trip in 2015 and we were hooked!  This is one of our family’s favorite place to go!  So we get up early, but not too early, on Sunday morning and take the bus from Port Orleans Riverside to the Magic Kingdom.  From there, it is a short five minute walk over to the Contemporary Resort, home of Chef Mickey’s. Breakfast here is always amazing!  The all-you-care-to-eat buffet has…

Episode 7: Becoming Disney Historians & Star Wars Fireworks – Walt Disney World – September 2016

Our day at Hollywood Studios is coming to a close… but we’re not done yet!  We head over to Toy Story Midway Mania for our second ride of the day.  Now, we have never done this twice in one day before because we could only get one Fast Pass and never wanted to wait in the standby line, but we were lucky enough to score an extra FP from joining in on Jedi Training Academy earlier in the day so…

We had a great time this year at Alexandria Winter Fete!  It started with Santa Claus being brought in on a fire truck and lighting up downtown.  Atwood’s Bakery had an amazing gingerbread decorating station where we could customize our gingerbread men with icing and candy.  We saw this setup as we were coming in and and jumped in line to do this first thing!  We were lucky enough to be able to have a second round of decorating on…

One of the best shows at Hollywood Studios is the Frozen Sing-a-long!!!  Now, we are huge fans of Frozen, we just fell in love with the movie when it came out, even before all the hype. This show is so much fun!!!  So it goes like this… Princess Anna come on stage to introduce the Royal Historians of Arendelle who are going to tell the sister’s story.  The two we had were the best I had ever seen, especially the…
