Archives for May 2011
20+ days ago, Randy with Your Highway in the Sky, posted a 30 Day Photo Challenge on twitter (@fluffedmojo) and encouraged others to participate. I took him up on his challenge and you can follow my 30 days on “A Disney Moms Thoughts” facebook page! Here is a recap of days 16-20 from the challenge! You can catch up on the days 1-5 here, days 6-10 here and days 11-15 here!
Day 16, May 13, 2011: A picture of your favorite place to shop
This was hard. I’m not a shopper (at all) but I do love looking at all the “stuff” to buy at WDW! There are so many smaller, quaint shops I like inside the parks, but I think my favorite is World Of Disney at Downtown Disney. I can find just about anything there and so can the rest of my family!
Day 17, May 14, 2011: A picture of your favorite Disney character
Belle. I wrote about why here.
Day 18, May 15, 2011: A picture of your favorite guilty Disney pleasure
Cupcakes. This one was from Starring Rolls at Hollywood Studios. I think it was the marble one- the cake was chocolate/ vanilla swirl with white icing that had a dollop of chocolate fudge in the center- with Mickey head sprinkles on top and chocolate sprinkles rolled on the sides. DELICIOUS! And yes, I ate the whole thing. If you are a cupcake fan, you gotta check this out from The Disney Food Blog!
Day 19, May 16, 2011: A picture of something in the park that deserves more attention
Journey Into Imagination immediately came to mind when I saw today’s topic. This attraction needs so much attention. Following the ride, the “play area” is pitiful. Most of it was blocked off with plastic and barricades. Back in the day, that was my favorite part of Epcot!!

Day 20, May 17, 2011: A picture of the best way to beat the heat at Disney
Ice cream is definitely the best way to beat the heat! My personal favorite is the Mickey Ice Cream Sandwich! It’s a must on a hot day at Walt Disney World! It’s even better eaten in air conditioning! 🙂
Once you get to the park, you can bring your passport to the Star Tours attraction (starting May 20 at DHS and June 3 at DL) and get it stamped. There are also checkboxes and blanks on the passport that allow you to write the dates you visit the different destinations: Hoth, Naboo, Death Star, Tatooine, Coruscant, and Kashyyyk. I wonder how long it will take to get it all checked off!?!
Back in February, I posted about a “Hidden Mickey” my two year old found at home. Since then, he’s found 3 more. Well, actually just 1 more that was “hidden” and 2 other Mickeys at home:
