Disney Music Swing Into Spring Giveaway

by Kim Tolander on April 16, 2014


We’re a big fan of Disney Junior in this house. My five year old guy has a special place in his heart for Jake. Doc McStuffins changed our trips to the pediatrician with her show *AND* her SONGS! He loves to sing the songs on the way to the pedi, while we’re waiting, and directly to our pediatrician. I can only imagine she is hearing LOTS of Doc songs in her practice nowadays.

We were sent a preschool pack of Disney music to review. Any of these would be great addition to the car or home of your favorite preschooler. I’m giving away a preschool pack that include one each of the following CDs including the amazing Frozen CD! Enter below using rafflecopter. You must be 18 or older to enter.

Celebrating Our DisneySide

by Kim Tolander on March 23, 2014

One of my earliest memories of anything is riding the Skyway across Disney World with my Dad on my first trip to the Magic Kingdom when I was three. So I guess from a very early age, I’ve always had a #DisneySide. By the time I was in middle school my #DisneySide has expanded to include the planning for the trip. The summer between the 7th and 8th grade, my parents gave me a budget and let me plan our vacation to Disney World from A to Z.

I spent every extra moment studying my Birnbaum’s Walt Disney World Guide. That year we stayed on the 25th floor of the Buena Vista Palace, and I’m pretty sure the trip sealed my love for Disney, planning, and really awesome hotels.

So, as you can imagine, I was thrilled to learn that I was selected to be a host for our own #DisneySide Party. Thanks to Disney Parks and Mom Select, we were provided with a party kit that included the perfect ingredients for a perfect #DisneySide Party. There were party supplies and treats for our guests (including HP Photo Paper and Hanes T-shirts that we decorated with Crayola Fabric Markers). All of it arrived in a gorgeous American Tourister “At Skate” piece of luggage – black on the outside and red on the inside – perfect Mickey Mouse colors! Did you know that American Tourister is the official luggage of Walt Disney World and Disneyland?

We had lots of fun at our party including watching the latest Walt Disney World Vacation Planning DVD. It took me right back to that first trip I planned, and I can’t wait for the next!

Here are some photos from our DisneySide Party!
