Meeting Disney Characters-Tips for face time

Hi guys,
 I’m switching over to Disney mode :) I want to share with you how to get a bit extra face time
with the Disney characters, especially your favorites. The thing I
did was make my own character T-shirts..(See pics)...I bought
cheap T's on sale, bought iron on transfer material for dark t-shirts,
looked up on the net for our fav characters pics / and /or used pics
 of us with the characters from previous trips..put tiltles around the pics my first disney trip or me and my pal mickey, my 2008 Disney trip, etc get the idea..i then printed it off on my computer onto the iron on
material then ironed it onto the t-shirt..(cheaper than buying t-shirts
there if budget is a concern...
As you will see in the pics it got the characters interacting with us
even more than normal
and if they hold you there
you feel less bad that you’re
holding up the line:)

Tink took time to comment on each of the 4 pics on my sons shirt especially
 warning him to not let Mickey see the pic of Minnie kissing him....
later at mgm Mickey saw the t-shirt picture and made signs ,
--i'm watching you.
which had everyone laughing and my son actually blushed which made
it even funnier(he was 16)...
Minnie let him know how pleased she was to have her picture on his shirt and
that she remembered him from the year before..
Mickey was saying oh no dale will be jealous that only chip is on the shirt
(and when he showed up ,he pretended to be hurt)...

Mulan commenting on how she like the pic and
was chip his favorite..

Dale pretended to be upset and left the picture we had to coax him back..and say he was to busy and popular for us to get a picture with him last time.... it was great fun ..and gave us lots of time for pics....( chip and dale always spend the most time with people)....
so you might want to give it a try when you go(I made one for each of us for each park day).....

Cricut's-WinterWoodLand Card-Seasons Greetings


I had to remove the card pictures as its going to be published in making cards magazine :)

Spectromagic Parade-layout-trip Tip

                      The Magic Kingdom has a beautiful lighted parade called Spectromagic (it doesn’t go on every night so watch for the worth it).The floats have half a million beautiful coloured lights and miles of fiber optics cables , a wonderful peacock, Mickey, Cinderella’s carriage and many other Disney characters ...

                      A very good place to sit is on the right side of the Castle on the sidewalk edge...Take your pictures facing the castle to have it in the background...makes for very nice backdrop... (You’ll need to get there to stake a spot 1 ½ - 2 hrs ahead of time and I’m not kidding)(Make time then to rest, enjoy the castle and have a night snack to pass the time, meet your neighbours from around the world...we met some lovely people)...

Disney-And I think to myself what A Wonderful World,Cricut-George and basic shapes

                                              This layout was done using Cricut's -George and basic shapes for my title “and I think to myself what a wonderful world"...indeed it is, a favourite part of my world...I love this spot near the rose garden to take pictures. As you can see you get the beautiful castle in the background...I used Bazzill paper, and Sandy lion’s Disney stickers for the layout

This baby girl album was made using Martha Stewarts 8x8 chipboard white album,

I covered it with Me and My Big Ideas, pretty baby paper. (and a few 8x8 loose pages I found at Micheals)

I used cricut’s New Arrival, Storybook,Going Places,Graphically Speaking and Paper Dolls cartridges for the diecuts.(I think that's all of them)
I also glittered it up with Stickles (love them)...and inkssentials-glossy accents(dries to clear glossy finish)....

I made it for a co-worker due in October.

Refillable resort Mugs

I suggest you buy the unlimited refill mugs at your Resort. You can enjoy soda, coffee, iced tea, and hot chocolate, for the duration of your visit...If you are a distance from the restaurant the large size will help to make fewer trips back and forthe, especially after a long day at the parks.

Mickey Mouse landyard, fast pass ticket holder

                                      Just a quick post to show you this great little Mickey Mouse lanyard, ticket and fast pass holder/small change purse...I got it off eBay last year..It was so great to have a spot that was quick to access  my key to the world card and fast passes ,instead of having them in my pocket or wallet  ( could get wet on water rides)  instead of having to dig for them each time..It was under $10.00 and worth every penny...

 and we make reservations according to which park/resort we will be near and end up having to loose less park day hours and have super good food
( both quick service spots and table service spots have good choices fast burgers if you want or full meals like above are all included)
and yes character meals are included on the dining plan:)
(T)= table service meal....(Q) = quick service meal
