Today’s Tip: Bring Disney goodies from home for the trip down and to surprise the kids with each day of the trip!
A few weeks ago, I did a post on the ten attractions I won’t do at WDW. I was rereading that post and didn’t want to sound like a “Debbie Downer” so I thought I’d post 10 things I always do on a trip to Walt Disney World! These are in no particular order, but know that these are 10 things that happen on every trip to the World.
During our trip to WDW in February 2006 our son, JAG, wanted to get his face painted at then MGM Studios. Of course he chose a character I didn’t know, Darth Maul. Even after it was completed, I still had no idea who that was. I had to google it when we got home! Obviously, I’m not a Star Wars fan! Here is the progression of the transformation:
The task from Babes in Disneyland for this blog hop is to post a photo of you “doing something Disney”. Doing something Disney??? Hmmm… As some of the other “bloghoppers” have already said, I’m usually the one taking the photographs so there aren’t many of me doing anything!! Most of the photos I’m in are with characters or in front of a park icon that a photopass photographer took. But I did find one of me actually doing something Disney!!
“Beth, by the power and authority vested in us, it is our great pleasure to bestow upon you the position of NDM #386. You shall henceforth bear the noble and esteemed title of Neurotic Disney Mom. Go forth in the “World,” wearing your new title with pride as you indoctrinate your friends and family into Disney culture, uphold The DDL Principles and practice the disciplines of The Disney Driven Life. May the Mouse smile upon you in all of your vacation endeavors!”
How exciting is that!?! I’ve been waiting since February 5, when I requested to be a part of the Disney Driven Life, for my Neurotic Disney Mom #! If you aren’t familiar with The Disney Driven Life, it’s a community blog for Neurotic Disney People! It has so many wonderful features:
- read blog entries by NDPs
- community roster of all NDPs and their twitter handles, so you can connect all the time!
- share photos, videos and trip reports with other fans
- train for a 5K with the “zero to hero” plan
- participate in live events through DDL
- listen to podcasts through the inner mouse
- get discounts on Disney Park merchandise with your NDP#
WHICH CHARACTER DINING SHOULD I ENJOY THIS FALL?
The people have spoken! Thanks for voting in my first poll!! After reading all of your comments, facebook messages and emails I’ve decided to go with the majority and make reservations for breakfast at Tusker House in September. Cape May, O’Hana and 1900 Park Fare are still high on my list, but I think I want to save those for the whole family and not just me, Cman and my mom. Since we’ll only be at WDW for 3 days I decided I didn’t want to waste our time in the parks by traveling to and from resorts for meals. So, I think our itinerary will look something like this:
