Thoughts for the Week: January 8-14, 2012

Another busy week has passed here at A Disney Mom's Thoughts!  I've been busy planning my son's 3rd birthday party.  It will be next weekend, so stay tuned for details on our "Jake and the Neverland Pirates" party!  One downer this week was the fact that I had to cancel my plans with Melissa from Disney on Wheels on Friday.  We were supposed to see Beauty and the Beast together, but my son got sick.  I guess it's better to be sick this weekend than next weekend and miss the party...

Here is a quick recap of the week, in case you missed something.

Don't forget about The Disney Mom's Dooney & Bourke giveaway!  Have you entered the giveaway?  Several of us from "The Disney Moms" have come together to have this awesome giveaway!  Don't forget to enter for your chance to win.

Monday, January 9~
I shared a guest post on Meet the Magic on Living with the Land at Epcot.  This is one of our families favorite rides! 

Finally, I had a chance to recap part of our time at Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP)!  We spent quite a bit of time at the Tomorrowland Dance Party with Goofy, Pluto and Stitch.  You can see video of my baby dancing! :)

Tuesday, January 10~
Check out this "Tuesday's Tip" about decorating your resort window.  Does your family do this?

I also reviewed the Boo To You Parade at MNSSHP.  This is a must see if you are a guest at the party! I shared some crummy photos and a video of the Headless Horseman's ride.

Wednesday, January 11~
Wednesday begins my blog hop days!  Today I participated in Deb's hop at Focused on the Magic.  The Wordless Wednesday theme was "Characters Great and Small."  Do you know where my photo was taken?

Thursday, January 12~
The next blog hop was Lisa's from Babes in Disneyland.  Each Thursday, I do my best to join her "hop."  This theme was "What I'm looking forward to in 2012- Disney Style!"  Read about my exciting plans!

Friday, January 13~
Deb at Focused on the Magic hosted another hop today- Flashback Friday.  I shared a photo my dad snapped during a trip in the 80s when we were riding the Skyway to Tomorrowland.  Do you miss that attraction as much as I do?

I also answered a Facebook question on my blog today.  I hope Ami finds it so she can see my thoughts on Transportation in WDW!

Around the Web~
Here are a few of the Disney related articles I enjoyed reading this week:

Heidi from Heidi's Head posted about her interesting week.  After taking her first Disney Travel Agent's test, she had a medical scare with her memory.  Continue to pray for Heidi as she recovers.

Melissa from Disney on Wheels shares a delicious review of Via Napoli at the Italy Pavilion at Epcot.  I'm really excited to visit this restaurant... I wonder if they'll make my pizza without cheese!?!

Beth from Pursuing the Magic shares a guest post from Deb at Focused on the Magic as part of her "In Pursuit of Pirates" series.  Deb shares tips on taking photographs on dark rides, such as Pirates of the Caribbean.

Chip over at Chip and Co shared a list of snacks at Magic Kingdom and Epcot that are a part of the Disney Dining Plan.  I've already copied this list and highlighted all the snacks I'm interested in trying... don't judge! :)

Magical Blogorail Blue and Black were both busy with loops this week!  Check out Black's 2012 Disney Resolutions and Blue's Favorite World Showcase Pavilions!

Don't forget you can also follow "ADMT" on Twitter and Facebook!


  1. Thank you, Beth!  Deb's article was great!  I really need to get scheduling my next trip so I can test out my photo skills! :-)  Thanks for including the Magical Blogorail too!

  2. Thanks for including me in your round-up post!  I appreciate all the prayers - and know  they are why I am feeling better! :)
