Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party

Mickeys not so scary Halloween party started last night!! And we are so excited to be bringing some Disney Magic to you! So let’s dive in and showcase the 2018 party fun!


Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is a special ticketed Party. We strongly advise buying tickets in advance as you get discounts and a lot of the party days sell out. The party usually starts at 4pm. Non-ticket holders are ushered out before the party starts.

Yes! You can wear costumes! Visit Disney.com for rules!


With the Sanderson sisters (Hocus Pocus) teaming up with other villains to cast a spell over Magic Kingdom, there will be plenty of opportunities to see some evil characters.


Main events:

Trick or Treating equals unlimited candy! Explore the park and grab candy at designated spots along the way. Bring your candy buckets or buy your favorite from one of the Disney stores! If you or your child has food allergies, Disney offers Teal bags and coins to trade in for special candy, stickers, and trinkets.


Another main event is the Boo To You Parade!

Catch the opportunity to see some really neat grave diggers create sparks on the walkway with their shovel shuffle! Also a great chance to see the Headless Horseman lead the entire parade!


Several rides are decked out with special features just for the party!

Space Mountain roller coaster goes completely dark! Even the stars are hidden! There is also a new soundtrack.

Pirates of the Caribbean has live action pirates as you wait in line!

Mad Hatter’s Tea Party boasts of a magical light show-it’s dazzling!


The fog all over the park also adds a really nice but spooky ambiance.

Be sure to check out these treats as well!

First off is the Haunted Mansions Hitchhiking Doom Buggy- the reviews though aren’t that great. Not a lot of flavor.

This Candy Corn Milkshake looks amazing! It includes vanilla cotton candy and a vanilla Mickey Mouse marshmallow.

What’s not to love about Jack Skellington from the Night Before Christmas?! These cake pops are super cute and we are so glad they brought back the design from last year.

Dirt and worms- this looks delicious! And even comes with a tombstone!

These are just several of the available desserts all throughout the parks!


According to WDW PrepSchool here is the best and worst places to see the fireworks throughout the park.


We are still awaiting the Tim Trackers video from last night! We know they were at Walt Disney World for the opening of Mickey’s Not Scary Halloween Party because pictures are starting to come in from the fans! Disney fans got a real treat seeing them last night!

Also they did post that they are working on one copyright issue that popped up right before posting so it is a matter of time before that video shows up! 🙂 we will post that video when it comes available.

But for right now here are two videos by Undercover Tourist for you to check out!

Best Friends & A Disney Dumbo Party

My toddler daughter has a friend who is only 32 days older than she is and they are quickly becoming best friends. The two of them are cute as buttons 💜

So today I hosted a Disney Dumbo Party for the two of them. We had cotton candy, circus peanuts, animal crackers, and hotdogs with ketchup of course! We also had juice and a fruit medley.

I’m not sure how much we all watched the movie 😉 but they sure partied it up!

They even decorated matching heart-shaped boxes for all their “treasures,” played with the princess castle and ran all over the place squealing as loud as they could.

They had so much fun! This stage of life is just the best. They are learning everything; life is so new. Almost anything fills their little eyes with wonder. And they love their friends so deeply💜🎀

Mine is the One Shoe Wonder as I like to call her. She’s always losing a shoe. Just like Cinderella 😂

He’s 30! Golden Birthday Celebration

My hubby who is also co-author to our blog, turned 30 earlier this year! It was his golden birthday too which meant he was 30 on the 30th! We celebrated with a surf and turf feast! Snow crab, king crab legs, lobster tails, and shrimp Skewers, and sweet potatoes. I’m not a huge fan of seafood so he and our toddler daughter got to eat it all!

I am so blessed to walk through life with this guy. He’s smart, funny, and an awesome dad.

He actually started and fueled my Disney obsession. He has a hard time relaxing because he works hard all the time. But something about planning Disney trips changed his life a few years ago. I obviously jumped on board as soon as I saw that it was genuinely making him a happier person. We have bonded over our mutual obsession with everything Mickey Mouse and become even better best friends that we were before ❤️

So here’s to my other half! Happy Birthday John! Can’t wait till our next adventure!

Ear Inspirations

Rafiki- The Lion King, my absolute favorite of her ears

So I do make my own ears, but I want to showcase another designer in this blog post

agirlandagluegun.com

Some of these are just absolutely amazing! Especially,  Rafiki from The Lion King.


I personally do not sell my ears due to Disney Copyright 😦 but others are willing to do so and have great product!

I plan to make Winnie the Pooh, Mulan inspired, and Minnie Mouse ears for my next pieces in my collection.


After that, I will be looking at these to see some character inspiration. One thing I will have to say about this websites ears, I prefer a simpler profile. And some of these ears are kind of complicated.

But anyway check her ears out!

Flounder- The Little Mermaid
Heart of Tafiti- Moana
Small World Ride
Merida-Brave
Hollywood Studios – Tower of Terror

Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather

Upcoming this week we will be talking about Tea Recipes, Ways to earn free money doing simple savings deals on Disney, obtaining flyer points, and possibly releasing another Disney Pair of Ears!

Our Favorite Disney Vloggers: The Tim Tracker

Tim Tracker is must know name in the Disney World. You Tube sensations Tim & Jen make a video every day and they’ve been vlogging for the past 9 1/2 years!

With millions of hits for every single video they produce, they are quickly becoming a Disney Icon while not actually belonging to Disney whatsoever.

While my husband and I have yet to meet them in person, that is one of our ultimate Disney goals someday. They no longer do meet ups due to their ever growing fame. So to catch an opportunity to say hi and meet them is holy grail happened upon by chance.

Jen and Tim live near Orlando and have annual passes to all the theme parks. While they do tour and blog on all theme parks, they are widely known for the tours of Disney.

Hugely inspirational, Disney has even extended VIP passes to Tim Tracker for pre-opening events. Their latest was just last month when Toy Story Land opened at Walt Disney World in Hollywood Studios.

Fans cannot get enough of their videos and recently, they announced that they would be shutting down their P.O. Box. Which is so unfortunate! I was planning on sending them a pair of my handcrafted Mickey Ears! But obviously they have received so much fan memorabilia that they have no more room to store it all.

The most important, I believe, is that this adorable couple embody the American small family spirit. Their dog Bandit also stars in most of the videos. This is their life and they embrace it to the fullest!

They are right in the action of the latest and greatest cameras for vlogging and capture the Today’s culture of taking hold of every moment on camera.

So thanks Tim and Jen for spreading the Disney Magic and making it easier for everyone to navigate the realm of Disney Theme Parks all the while being so much fun and entertaining!

Just type in The Tim Tracker on YouTube. The videos are addicting and we usually watch them instead of regular TV to get our Disney Fix in between trips 🙂

Let us know if you have had the special opportunity to meet these guys!  What’s your favorite Tim Tracker Video?

New Headband Release by Blooms & Beautifuls

Loosely inspired by The Little Mermaid these handmade Boutique ears sport a metallic green scales band, and a red bow that pops against the sparkly bright blue ears. A tiara of pearls adorn the border of the band. Then a silver twisted rope outlines the ears themselves.

Atop the middle of the bold red bow is large pearl.

I am planning on wearing these at one of the days at Epcot for The Little Mermaid and Oceans Exhibit!

Let me know what characters are your favorite!

New Round of Future Mickey Ears

I went fabric shopping today! I hand-make each pair of Mickey ears from scratch 🙂

These new patterns will be my take on Winnie the Pooh Bear, Minnie Mouse, and Mulan. Eeek! So excited!

As always I do NOT sell my handmade ears! They go into my collection due to Disney Copyright.

Who’s your favorite Disney Character? Who would inspire your ears?
