My Daughter’s Famous… Well Sort Of

Getting ready to hear the “Bing Bong Song” for the first time as part of the movie

Ok so she’s not famous…Yet. Though, as a parent of a four year old, I’m incredibly excited for my daughter’s feature film voice debut in the newest Pixar release Inside Out. She only has 4-6 lines in the whole movie, but when I hear them I know it’s her and that’s all that matters. Her voice is one of many that plays young Riley. In her case it’s the 3 year old memory of Riley playing hockey and singing the “Bing Bong Song”. Listen for it in the first 10 minutes. Continue reading

Pete’s Dragon from Disney’s Magic Kingdom’s Electric Parade. I loved this movie as a kid, and it was just cool to see that it had not been forgotten with the dearth of parade time devoted to princesses and pirates.

Review: WDW Magic Bands

Review: Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge

Well the test of Disney Magic Bands is now no longer a test as of April 30th it is now available to anyone that goes to any of the Walt Disney World Parks. They have been testing it for almost a year for hotel guests and annual pass holders, but now any guest that wants to fork over the $12.95 for a Magic Band can do so and take advantage of the perks.

My family was at the WDW for eight nights in early May and because we had booked a room at the Animal Kingdom Lodge we had the opportunity to pre-order the bands and have them sent to our home or directly to the hotel, and because we were a guest the bands were free. The perk itself is pretty cool. It allows you to do several things from open your room door, pay for meals and souvenirs, get into the park (if you link your park ticket to your My Magic account) and also make Fast Pass reservations up to 60 days in advance.

This week we’re at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, and are staying at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. The review is forthcoming, but I had to post a Photo of the Week, featuring one of the many giraffe’s. They are so so beautiful, and in this photo this guy is lounging around like a puppy. They are just amazing creatures.

Yeti Up, Yet’s Go!

The shirt my wife and friend designed for their Expedition Team

Our trip to Florida is finally here, We’ve been in desperate need of a vacation. As a Christmas gift to my wife I had signed her up for the Run Disney Expedition Everest 5k Challenge. She’s become a runner, and has done several 5, 10k and half marathons, like there no big thing. Two of her races have been at Disneyland, and I know she really wanted to do a race at Walt Disney World. So I though what better then to sign her up. No I won’t be running, someone has to watch the kid while she runs. Pretty good excuse huh?

I waited to book airfare, till after I gave her the gift. Just in case this was not her idea of a good time. I knew the running part would be easy since she can roll out of bed any morning and do 5k, before I even wake up. But I had no idea if the scavenger hunt part would be something that she’d be into. Thankfully she was up for it, and my gift was not a flop.

Stay tuned for more about our trip. From planning a weeklong vacation at WDW, flying across the country with our almost three year old and even a few packing tips.
