Disney’s Inside Out Coming to theaters 6/19/15! Great movie tie-in books available now. #‎InsideOutEvent


Ever wonder what the little voices in your head do? How are you inner voices, do they have their own personalities do they have their own lives? Well find that out with the fun new movie from Pixar, Inside Out coming to theaters everywhere on June 19th!

 From an adventurous balloon ride above the clouds to a monster-filled metropolis, Academy Award®-winning director Pete Docter (“Monsters, Inc.,” “Up”) has taken audiences to unique and imaginative places. In Disney•Pixar’s original movie “ Inside Out,” he will take us to the most extraordinary location of all—inside the mind.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it's no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life.

 As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley's main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

A special Disney Mothers Day! Ready for a Fun run? Yes!! #Disneysmmc

My Sunday at the Disney Media Mom's Conference started (not so) bright and early (6 a.m.) because I signed up to do the GoGo Fun Run, Sponsored by GoGo squeeze. My husband always talks about the tranquility of the parks in the early morning hours, he knows this because of the past several years of attending Star Wars weekend. He’ll typically get up at 2:30 a.m. and head over to the Studio’s to get in whatever line he needs to get in. It’s a beautiful sight to see what is normally a bustling and busy theme park sitting quietly in the still of the night.
I’m not a runner by any stretch but I wanted to take this opportunity to get to see something I would not normally get to experience. It was called a run but you didn’t necessarily have to, I walked while others ran and it was all good. We made our way around Epcot and seeing Epcot in the dawn was stunning. It’s a beautiful park to begin with but with the sky behind it lighting it up in a really cool orangey purple it really looked wonderful.
We ended our run at the Butterflies on the Go butterfly garden, and I can’t help but thinking about my husband again…..he’s petrified of butterflies. (Luckily I am not :)
This is an exhibit my daughter and I always make our way into when we’re down here and the Flower and Garden Festival are going on. We leave the big chicken outside where he’s safe from the threat of the butterflies! 
 From Epcot we made our way back to the hotel to get ready for our goodbye breakfast. Breakfast sponsored by Disney Consumer Products—Imagicademy was wonderful. I can’t complain about any of the food we were fed at the conference, it was all wonderful and different and we never left anywhere hungry. I’ve never had as much food in a cone that wasn’t ice cream as I did over these past few days! Food in a cone is a wonderful idea.
During breakfast up on the big screen we were treated by pictures we had taken and tweeted over the past couple of days. And I was happy and proud to see my family with Hiro and Baymax up on the screen, I was delighted to see several of my pictures up on the screen, it really made my Mother’s Day even more special. After breakfast we were given quite a delightful surprise a performance by Orlando’s own VoicePlay

They appeared on the 4th season of The Voice and we’re absolutely fantastic. They instantly grabbed my daughter’s attention when the mentioned they just released a series of a cappella video game covers. My little gamer and savvy internet user quickly looked them up and was bopping her head up and down to the music. This was really a special surprise, these guys are wonderfully talented singers and performers and they were really funny as well. You could feel a sense of brotherly love between them it really came through with their performance.
And finally we were treated by a skit that hit a little close to home with us and that was given by the Disney's Imagicademy. It involved a mother and daughter and the daughter was a budding artist and it just followed her along her path as a budding artist to an artist. It hit me because that’s what I’m living right now. My daughter loves to draw and has been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil. We’ve always encouraged her to draw and help her talent grow and who knows maybe one day she’ll be drawing feature length animations for Disney or Pixar.
 I’m excited to see what the future holds for my little girl and this skit really made this Mother’s Day a little more special. After breakfast we gave our goodbye’s to each other and it got a little weepy but we all had fun and will all keep in touch and hopefully I’m lucky enough to see them all again if I’m lucky enough to be invited back. We had a wonderful time and experienced things we never thought we’d get to do and I’m glad we had the opportunity to do it.

We didn’t know what to expect and were excited to see what we had in store for us when we arrived at the park. We were taken into the Magic Kingdom via a back entrance and it was neat to see some of the behind the scenes things that are well hidden away from the guests.

Well the day is here! With butterflies in my stomach I headed down to the conventions center at the Yacht and Beach Club, I was off to learn more about Disney and make some great new friends. This was so exciting!
To start our first official conference day, we were greeted with a lovely healthy breakfast, an amazing spread that include an make your own omelet bar, and loads of other breakfast favorites. As we enjoyed our breakfast we learned how Disney is making the food they serve us in the parks more healthy. They are also working to make the food more allergy friendly.

Are you excited to see Disney's Tomorrowland? I was fortunate to be able to check out the first seven minutes of the movie during the Disney Media Moms Conference. And WOW, the movie looks great! I was impressed and was drawn in, in only seven minutes. It does not hurt that that beginning of the movie stared out with one of my most favorite Disney songs of all time…. I won’t spoil it for you, but be sure to check this movie out, I know I will be there opening weekend!



Are you traveling this summer? Here are some great road trip books for your little ones!

Summer is coming and many are planning some fun trips. Be it in a car or a plane there are lots of places to go, and the little ones will need some fun for the car. I remember traveling with my daughter when she was in pre-school, as soon as we started moving on our road trip she would say “I’m bored!”  what can I do? Well I learned pretty quickly that each road trip need a bag of kid friendly supplies, that is filled with snacks, coloring books, crayons and fun books to read and enjoy during the drive/flight. There are some great traveling books coming soon from Disney Publishing, here are some of my favorites, each are prefect for ages 3 - 5 years and for kids in the grade levels Preschool – Kindergarten:

Our home during the Disney Social Media Moms conference, Disney's Beach Club Resort #Disneysmmc




I was invited to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration conference. I paid a conference fee to attend. I received a discounted rate for my stay. All opinions are my own. I have not been compensated or asked to post about Disney .  

The Disney Social Media Moms Conference was a dream come true for me. Not only would I be traveling to Disney to learn about some cool new Disney things, and meet great bloggers…. I would also be going with my family! Being able to experience this wonderful time with my family was a gift. My family and I were very excited to stay at Disney’s Beach Club resort. This would become our home away from home for the extended weekend.
We stayed at the Yacht Club a couple of years ago and we love trying new hotels so this was a good chance to try something new that kind of had a familiar look since the Beach & Yacht Clubs are mirror resorts and add into the mix that you're within walking distance to the International Gateway. The Beach Club was also within walking distance from the conference center, which was great since I would be spending a bit of time there this weekend.
Our room was bright and cheery, with large comfortable beds and a day bed.. Giving our family of three plenty of room to spread out, and we all loved having our own bed.
The hotel has the most spectacular pool on Disney property (well in my humble opinion) a sand bottom pool that will amaze you. Stormalong Bay is a huge pool, filled with waterfalls, sand and a huge ship! This is no ordinary ship, it is also a cool slide! 
 As soon as my daughter saw this pool all she wanted to do was go swimming…. When can we go to the pool mom?? She seemed more interested in going to this pool than going to the parks… kids!

The view is something else, imagine a vey of a beach and board walk… Ahhh it just relaxes you and puts you in a beachy mood. Being a family that has traveled to the Jersey Shore each summer for our entire lives, this is a shore line like no other. A beautiful well maintained hotel Disney’s Beach Club is a place we will be returning to soon.  If you are looking for a hotel that has lovely theming, a wonderful pool and is close to Epoct be sure to check out Disney’s Beach Club Resort, I am sure your family will love it as much as my family did.

First day at the Disney Media Moms Conference, meeting Mickey a dance party and more! #Disneysmmc

I was invited to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration conference. I paid a conference fee to attend. I received a discounted rate for my stay. All opinions are my own. I have not been compensated or asked to post about Disney .



When I started this (what seems likes a lifetime ago) that one day I would be a Disney Social Media Mom, I'd say you were crazy! But sure enough some five plus years after starting this, I sat on a plane with my family bound for MCO and several days of fun we're ahead of us because I now am headed for the Disney Social Media Mom Conference! It's a dream come true for me, as a family who frequents both WDW and Disneyland we're kind of consumed with Disney as a whole and to be able to get to go to Lake Buena Vista and meet other bloggers (both mommy's and daddy's) and mingle with them and their families and just be able to soak in all these once in a lifetime things was really spectacular.
We left Philadelphia Wednesday so we could be all chipper for Thursday the start of the conference. I wanted to make sure we had as much time possible, I didn't want to miss out on anything. We spent the early part of Thursday in the Magic Kingdom having a ton of fun as always, but I spent the bulk of my time checking my phone and seeing all the posts from everyone saying they're here and can't wait to meet everyone. I couldn't wait to get back to the Yacht Club and check in and mingle.
