Run Disney on a budget

Expedition Everest RunI have signed up for my first ever official race and what better way to do it than in Disney style. I will be running Expedition Everest at Animal Kingdom in 2013 and I plan to do it on a budget. I had to fork over $224.15 tonight for the race. $110 per person, $220 per team. I had called Disney last week and was told I could pay for the race in Disney Gift Cards but that was not true as the race registration went thru

Time for the real training to start. I just started jogging/running this summer and I am confident I can easily do a 5K but not sure about the Florida humidity.  The great thing about this race is it is a 5k with an obstacle course, and scavenger hunt all incorporated in one.

Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse Birthday Party Ideas

My daughter recently turned 2 and we had a few people over and decided to have a Minnie Mouse Theme Birthday.  I made these adorable Minnie Mouse ears  which were a hit. Check out this blog with details on how to make your own Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse ears.


I also made these super cute Minnie Mouse place settings. I took 2 different size black plates simply hot glued them together and added a bow. I used a butterfly cookie cutter as a template for the bows.

Another hit was the Mickey Mouse Oreo cookies. I also found these from a blog which you can check out here with details on how to make your own.

Starbucks Comes To Disney

According to the Disney Parks blog Starbcuks will be making it debut in Disney World and Disneyland.
