Finding a human to help you plan your Disney World trip




Next month my husband will be taking his first solo trip anywhere when he goes to Disney World for Star Wars weekend. Normally we'd go as a family but due to a few issues (work and our daughter is still in school) he gets to go solo and he's looking forward to it. I've booked many Disney vacations and I'm confident in my abilities to do so but this time my husband wanted to do it to see what it entailed, so I gave him the phone and off he went. If you are looking for a place that helps you find the number to call to talk to a real person, Get Human is the site for you. They  that provides contact information for those companies and departments that are hard to reach someone from the Walt Disney World Phone Number to Netspend


The nice thing is when you call Disney to book a vacation you get to talk to a human and not a machine, machines can't comprehend or answer questions the way an actual human can and my husband had a few questions mainly should he buy a premiere pass and the helpful agent helped him figure out that with 2 trips to WDW this year and a trip to Disneyland that it would be beneficial for him to spring for the premiere pass. He's all excited about finally being an AP holder, and I'm sure he'll finagle another trip this time next year under the guise of wanting to really get his money's worth out of the pass. My husband and finagling go together like peanut butter and jelly it's just one of his many “talents”. 

I know he's looking forward to going since Star Wars weekends combine his two biggest passions one being Star Wars and the other being Disney. The past two times we've gone for SW weekends I know he's not done what he's really wanted to do since we went as a family and I don't share the love for Star Wars like he has and he wants to do things together so he cuts short what he'd like to do so we can all be together. I'm looking forward for him to be able to get everything out of this weekend that is possible....I just hope he remembers to sleep!

I am going to the Hollywood Premiere Of Iron Man 3 #IronMan3Event



Wow I cannot wait to share all of the great details with you all, make sure to check out the hastag #IronMan3Event


I am still waiting for some more details, but I will let you guys know as soon as I hear.  I love Tony Stark, eccentric playboy billionaire!  My husband is a little jealous, well a lot jealous, he has been a fan of Iron Man since he was a kid! I can't wait until April.



About Iron Man 3:


Marvel’s “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?



Starring Robert Downey Jr., Gwyneth Paltrow, Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Stephanie Szostak, James Badge Dale with Jon Favreau and Ben Kingsley!




IRON MAN 3 releases in theaters on May 3rd!

Disney's PLANES, check out the new poster!


 Disney is coming out with a great new summer blockbuster! If you are a fan of Disney’s Cars, you will love Planes!


From above the world of “Cars” comes “Disney’s Planes,” an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing—and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar. “Disney’s Planes” takes off in theaters on Aug. 9, 2013.

So when we found out that we would be able to check out the most recent lego Star Wars dvd, we were so excited. If you are a Star Wars fan, it is something that will make you excited too!

Filled with charm, action and irreverent humor this original story features characters, locations and vehicles across the entire LEGO Star Wars universe including Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Princess Leia, C-3P0, R2-D2, Darth Maul, and more. When the premiere of LEGO Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Out aired on Cartoon Network, it became the number-one telecast of the day with kids ages 6-11 and boys ages 2-17. Written by Emmy Award winner Michael Price (The Simpsons), the show features many of the beloved Star Wars voice-actors fans know and love including Anthony Daniels, Sam Witwer, Ahmed Best and more.

SYNOPSIS: HOLD ON TO YOUR BRICKS….FOR AN ALL-NEW ANIMATED ADVENTURE!

Your favorite characters are back to save the galaxy in LEGO® Star Wars®: The Empire Strikes Out™. The heroes of the Rebel Alliance including heroic Luke Skywalker, swaggering Han Solo and steadfast Princess Leia have no time to celebrate their victory over the Empire as a new Imperial threat arises. But as Jedi-in training Luke embarks on this next mission, he discovers that his celebrity status as a “Death-Star-Blower-Upper” can be a double-edged lightsaber when he’s constantly mobbed by crazed fans. So much for secret missions! Meanwhile, Darth Vader and Darth Maul are locked in a hilarious “Sith-ling” rivalry as they compete for the Emperor’s approval. It’s an action-packed comic adventure that’s out of this world!

Our Take: 


My family adores Star Wars. From collecting just about all you can imagine that has to do with Star Wars if my husband had his say we would have posters all over the house. I have to put my food down with some things, but for the most part we still have a little Star Wars just about in every room.  Even down to my husband’s Star Wars tattoos, yes he is that big of a fan. Yes we have been to Star Wars weekend in Disney World, a few times it is a great way to enjoy each of the things we all love, Disney and Star Wars, and now that Disney owns the rights to Star Wars, I can’t wait to see what they will come up with next.  Last night we had a movie night, that game us some quality time together to just relax and have fun with a great star wars show. This was a great dvd, we all enjoyed it very much. 


This is a great show, that is full of Lego Star Wars action. My daughter is following in her daddy’s footsteps, and is just as big of a fan of the Star Wars universe as my husband is.  I love that you get a little Darth Vader mini fig with the dvd, my daughter loved playing with the mini fig while we all watched the movie. There is nothing cuter than a Lego version of Darth Maul, it is so small and cute! The dvd would make a great Easter basket stuffer, and for the cost of $15 (it is on sale for only $9.99 on Amazon) it is a great deal, for a last minute gift.

My daughter is growing up so quickly, she is now 8 years old I cannot believe it, where did my little baby go?

The new Dial Kids Body and Hair Wash was just what I was looking for. This was made for kids just her age, ages 6+.
 The smell of this body was is an amazingly sweet and fruity smell. The smell was a nice natural watermelon smell, it was almost mouthwatering it reminded me of a  jolly rancher candy, a sweet mouthwatering watermelon smell. I felt as if I was on a picnic with my family (well at least you feel like you are there, it is amazing what a smell can do). This body gentle, and bubbles up nicely. You could use this on a wash towel, or a pouf .

I love that it can be used as a hair and body wash, no need to buy two things, and it is such a time saver!  This is tear free, hypoallergenic, ph. balanced, and it contains no artificial colors or ingredients. My daughters skin was soft and smooth after use, I love this product and I will be purchasing it in the future.
