Jake, Sharky, and Bones from the Disney Jr. show Jake and the Neverland Pirates will be added to the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction this fall, 2017.  Adding Disney Junior characters to a classic attraction is a first for Disney Parks, though it seems to be following the progression of the mixing of the Disney brands, following the change from the cultural attraction, Maelstrom, to Frozen Ever After at Epcot, as well as Doc McStuffins coming to Animal Kingdom to greet guests, and  Disneyland’s modification of Space Mountain into a Star Wars attraction: Hyperspace Mountain.

My husband, two sons, and I are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Baby #3 any day now (hopefully, this weekend!).  With all of our children, we’ve waited until the delivery to find out if the baby is a boy or a girl.  I thought it would be fun to ask YOU to guess what the baby will be!

So, do you think it will be PINK or BLUE?  Our first GIRL or our third BOY?  

When I get home from the hospital, I will randomly select a name from the correct responses and I will send the winner these cute Disney key chains!  (CONTEST IS CLOSED)

The designs include Elsa, Baymax, and Tsum Tsums!  I think they’re adorable, but I’m giving them to one of YOU! Continue Reading…

Disneyland is your land.
Here, age relives fond memories of the past,
and here, youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future.
Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts
that have created America,
with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration
to all the world.

That, it, indeed, has been.

Here are some interesting facts about Disneyland’s opening: Continue Reading…

Cinderella Candy

Here is a recipe that is perfect for your princess party!

I’ve been making this candy since I was in junior high.  It is easy to do and it tastes delicious.  You can customize it with food coloring and extracts to change the flavor.  I usually add coloring to mine, but vanilla is my favorite flavor because I think it makes it taste like cotton candy.
