Disney Way of Mind Winner | A Disney Mom's Thoughts


Look I won! Last month I won a beautiful set of Snow White custom made ears in an Instagram Giveaway! If you haven't seen the creations by Disney Way of Mind, you need to head there NOW! She has some beautiful creations that can help turn your favorite character into Mickey ears. I came home from our most recent trip to Walt Disney World to find these ears waiting on me. I was so sad I didn't have them with me on my trip... but this gives me a reason to go back! I need to wear my new ears!

Thanks Krista for my new Mickey ears!  You rock!

General Mills Cereals Team Up with the Minions {Giveaway} | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

Recently I received a General Mills Package with a box of Mini Trix cereal, a box of Betty Crocker Minion fruit flavored snacks, an exclusive Minions Buddy and a $25 Fandango gift card to see the film, Minions, in theaters for writing a review and hosting a giveaway on my blog


We were able to go see "Minions" this week with our Fandango gift card! My son has been counting down the days since he saw the first trailer. My son loved the movie. He talked about it the whole way home and has been sharing which Minion toys he wants next. The movie was cute and had several funny parts that my husband and I caught. C-man was too young to understand the references to 1969. While I'm not sure this is a movie we will own in the future, I'm glad we were able to see it together. It gave C-man an afternoon with mom and dad without either brother tagging along.

Chewbacca Counts Down to Star Wars Weekends | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

We were at Walt Disney World May 28- June 2, 2015.  Our main purpose for this trip was to experience Star Wars Weekends at Disney's Hollywood Studios. This was actually my son's Christmas present.  He and I traveled down together, along with my mom, for the long weekend.  We were so excited about this trip and had been counting down since he opened the gift on Christmas morning and learned he was "going to Disney World!"

I wanted to help make this trip extra special.  I wanted to do something fun and more memorable to help count down the days... but I didn't want it to consume my time and energy!  I thought about our "Elf Magic" at Christmas who helps count down the days until Christmas morning.  I decided I would spin off of that! 

 
On day 1, Chewbacca arrived along with a letter.  This letter explained that Raleigh, our elf, sent Chewie to come visit and help us count down!  The best part was C-man fully believed it! (I love this age!)

Spot It! Numbers & Shapes with Olaf {Review} | A Disney Mom's Thoughts

I was sent a complimentary sample of this products to review for my blog. 
No further compensation was received and all opinions expressed are my own.

We have a new favorite game in our house: Spot It!  While we already have the "Disney Pixar Spot It! Words" game, it is just a bit too advanced for my boys still.  C-man is learning how to play the reading version, but this Olaf/ Frozen Spot It! game is perfect!  This is a game my 2 and 6 year old can play together since reading is not involved.  It can keep them occupied for at least 15 minutes! AND, it hasn't started any fights! ;)
