Top 5 general things NOT to do at a Disney Park

1. Don’t ever go into a souvenir store when your kids are AWAKE unless you have angels for kids😭🙈😭🙈😭🙈

2. If you are traveling with a stroller DONT Park it anywhere but official stroller parking, or it’s sure to be moved somewhere completely Remote when you return, hot, tired and ready to throw your kids in.

3. Don’t expect to get into most restaurants in the Park without a reservation. You’ll be sure to find yourself starving and wolfing down expensive junk food unless you make your reservation 180 days in advance. Mickey popcorn is good, but not that good.

4. Don’t wait more than 20 minutes and time see a character. Nobody in a dress and a wig is worth waiting hours for. You can find characters at most restaurants and the line for others usually dwindles at certain times of the day.

No character is worth an hour wait full of screaming kids and bathroom emergencies

5. Don’t forget – you are supposed to be having fun! You can always come back so relax, don’t throw yourself at the day full force. Take your time and enjoy!

**** And if a sign says do not enter or out of service, don’t enter or use! TRUST US

GADGETS AND GIZMOS AND THINGAMABOBS, OH MY!

You are in a large cavern with a huge stone covering the entrance. Inside are hollowed out shells. It’s cold. Damp. You’re not in Kansas anymore. 

You look around and see a statue of someone that looks slightly familiar. Something slippery slides past your ear. Wet and cold. You hear a whisper… can’t understand it. It’s small… is it..

No, not “oil can”. 

The whisper says “welcome to my grotto”.  The slippery slimy feeling you felt earlier? That was a fin, swimming past your ear.

You’re actually in the water, but somehow you can breathe without any trouble at all, even without fins and gills. Here is a list of some of the greatest treasure collection ever found in the sea: 

Dinglehopper – best piece of the collection, otherwise known as a fork that combs hair

Snarfblatt – otherwise known as a tobacco pipe that somehow plays a melody

Gizmos and Gadgets – Things you wear around your neck

Candelabra – what else would you use to hang your gizmos and dinglehoppers? a candle would just fizzle out underwater anyway.

Thingamabobs – also perfect to keep that bottle of wine from leaking

A BOY WHO CAN’T BE GOOD MIGHT JUST AS WELL BE MADE OF WOOD. LIFE ISN’T PLEASURE ISLAND: IF IT LOOKS TO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT USUALLY IS

Right here boys!! Get your cake, dill pickles, and ice cream!! Stuff yourselves! It’s all free!! Hurry!

Children are free from the law, and can be naughty. You take a boat to get there. 

In the original Italian story, Pleasure Island was called “Toyland”. It’s the same concept. The innocent give in to temptation. What looks to good to be true is to good to be true: the boys are turned into donkeys. 

Remember the Pied Piper of Hamlin? The Pied Piper or “Rat Catcher” comes from Hamelin, Germany. Between the 14th and 16th centuries, 100 children disappeared from the town of Hamelin.

Was there a real piper who took them away? Or was it the plague? The story goes that when the citizens refuse to pay for his service he lures away the children with a magical pipe song. He leads them inside a magical mountain filled with promises of toys and fun. We won’t get into what probably happened to them inside. 

Pleasure Island was an area at Downtown Disney Springs filled with clubs. The nightclubs closed down, but the shops remained open. Check out the yelp page here.  Reports of gangs, violence, highly intoxicated guests, and intense traffic all contribute to reasons behind the closing. Check out this interesting article here, on mouseplanet.com, on who killed Pleasure Island.

Lesson to remember: Don’t let your children speak to strangers. Avoid disrespectful folks who think they do not have to honor other’s creativity or thirst for knowledge. Don’t get drawn into mass temptation. If Lampwick jumps off a bridge, should you? Probably not. You may come back as a well deserved donkey.

Lets hope these baby ducks are being led away by their parents

 

LEGGINGS AREN’T JUST FOR LITTLE KIDS… AND NEITHER IS DISNEY!!!

Why leggings? Leggings are fun. They are comfortable. You only live once. Why not wear those dinosaur leggings to a kids birthday party?? The kids around you will appreciate them. And maybe just maybe in a world of chaos, political horror, and stress, the kid in you will appear for a few minutes. Plus you don’t have to button or zip anything.

Disney also has the ability to bring out the kid in you. So I guess it’s not much of a surprise that A partnership between Disney and Lularoe has just been announced. It’s not going to be just leggings. The collection will also include shirts and dresses with disney designs.

Frequently described as “buttery,” brand enthusiasts contend that LuLaRoe’s leggings are the best in the world. They’re soft, durable, and thick enough to be worn as pants, especially with one of LuLaRoe’s long tops or cardigans. Popular with everyone from working moms to college students, LuLaRoe’s leggings have helped launched a brand that now includes comfortable skirts, dresses, skirts, and shawls/sweaters. They are only sold through social media!

As of now, there is no official word on when exactly this clothing line will be made public.

But I believe it will be in the next few weeks.

Also, the prices are going to go up—I was hoping they wouldn’t, but they are. Not sure how much yet.

I may not become the crazy lady on the street wearing mickey leggings to work YET but I do plan on picking up one or two pairs to wear for fun on a weekend or at a kids birthday party. Why not?
