Our most recent visit to Disney World just happened to be smack dab in the middle of Hurricane Eta. While it ended up not being the complete catastrophe I expected it to be, we definitely had our fair share of downpours that week. And as I was navigating the park with 3 kids in the rain I knew I had to write a post when I got home for anyone who is planning a trip and wondering, “what do you do at Magic Kingdom when it rains?”
If you’ve stumbled upon this post you likely have a family trip to Disney World scheduled this year and you’re starting to think about what you’re all going to wear (mom, check out this post just for you). Maybe you’re thinking about that photo you’re going to take in front of the castle and you want to get everyone’s outfits just right. Or maybe you want matching shirts for every day of your trip. Because did you even go to Disney World if you didn’t at some point wear matching Disney family shirts? I think not.
As the seasons change I like to change out the wreath hanging on my door and I almost always use a metal wreath hanger. But this Christmas I ended up having 2 wreaths that I wanted to hang, and for the life of me, I could not find our second metal hanger anywhere in storage! So instead of leaving the house, I started to research ways to hang a wreath on a door without a metal hanger. As it turned out, I already had everything I needed so it cost me nothing! So if you’re looking for ways to hang a wreath without damaging your door, here’s my new trick on how to hang a wreath with ribbon!
You’ve made lists, gone shopping, made dining reservations, purchased discounted Disney gift card and packed your Mickey ears. But no matter how well you plan there will always be unexpected expenses that pop up on your trip that you may not have budgeted for. So my hope is that this list of unexpected expenses on your Walt Disney World vacation will help you to be ready for anything that comes your way, making for a more enjoyable, stress free time!
Last year my son was adamant that he was going to be a “scary zombie” for Halloween. Keep in mind that I had already bought 6 costumes on clearance at Target the previous year during after-Halloween sales just to avoid overspending and the last minute rush before Halloween the following year (See my post on how I save money on just about everything to read more about after holiday Target clearance). But thankfully a zombie costume is one of the easiest costumes to DIY. Here’s how to make a zombie costume for kids with things you probably already have around the house.
Summer hasn’t looked exactly how I envisioned it. We had planned long before COVID on making a trip to Florida to see family but we thought for sure we would fly. And while we still could have flown, it just didn’t feel like the right thing yet, so we took on the great road trip of 2020. And now I’m so glad we did! Because instead of just a week visiting family, it turned into an east coast adventure.
