Disneyland

I am so excited to tell you guys all about LA, starting with… DISNEYLAND!

Although my heart belongs to Walt Disney World, getting to venture into the original Disneyland was seriously amazing! My Uncle met my mom and I for the weekend, despite having a broken foot. What a trooper! The California hills were not so magical when we had to push his wheelchair up hills, but it was totally worth it for all of the amazing rides, like Hyperspace Mountain and the Storybook Land Canal.

It was an exceptionally hot day, so I opted for this adorable t shirt dress from Nordstrom Rack. It was cool and comfy, and really allowed my ears to shine.

Speaking of ears, these ears from The Fairy God-sisters are soooooo adorable! I actually couldn’t decide which pair was my favorite, so I took both the Briar Rose and Lilly Pulitzer! Now these ears aren’t just adorable, they are super comfortable too. I didn’t have to take a single break from them all day!

I will be doing a whole post about how I style them for a day in the parks, but for now be sure to check out The Fairy God-sisters on Etsy and Instagram!

Have a magical weekend!

A Procrastinator’s Guide To Disney World!

I have a horrible habit of putting things off till the last possible second, even when it’s something I’m really looking forward to. It’s not that I mean to, but there’s always something that seems more important. Although I looooove Disney, I don’t start planning for a trip until the night before. As an annual pass holder, not every trip needs to be perfect, but these spontaneous trips tend to go wonderfully!  As I am a self-proclaimed Disney Trip Procrastination Expert, I’ll share some of my sage wisdom on how to make a last minuet Disney trip, one of your best ever!

Although you can just hop in your car and spend a day at Disney with NO planning, here are some tips if you’ve got at least a couple of days left before your trip! Decide how many days you are planning to stay and get hotel reservations ASAP! Call around to see which hotels have the best prices, because the best deal differs depending on when exactly you go. Look up what the weather is going to be like, so that you can plan your outfits accordingly! A couple of years ago we decided to head to the parks in November and didn’t pack a single jacket… yikes!

Now that you’ve gotten all the boring details out-of-the-way, it’s time to start having fun! If the weather is nice when you get to the park, I would suggest going on your, “must ride/ do,” first. For me, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is my top priority!

After a ride or two (depending on how late you made it in to the park…) it’s time to figure out lunch! Although you didn’t plan enough in advance to make reservations at that character lunch you wanted to go to, there are still tons of options! During my birthday trip we scored seats at the cute little restaurant in France in Epcot, and the beautiful Be Our Guest restaurant in Magic Kingdom. If you are in the mood for something a little speedier, there are always great choices like Pecos Bill or Casey’s!

Although you didn’t plan ahead for this trip, if you are doing multiple days at the parks you need to prepare for the next few days by staying hydrated. Most people aren’t aware that you can get free ice water from most of the quick service restaurants in all four parks. I’ll usually grab a glass of H2O before hopping in a long line so that I can multitask!

Although in an ideal world we would plan all of our vacations months in advance, it doesn’t always happen that way! Weather you’re planning for a trip in December, or one this weekend, I hope that my little nuggets of wisdom will help you have a truly magical trip!
