Disney Family Fun Destination

This time last year I was midway through a wonderful family trip with my children in Disney World in Orlando Florida.  we spent 6 fun filled days in the park and loved every minute of it. It was the first visit for our youngest and the first visit for my boys that they can remember. They loved it so much they have been asking none stop to go back. Hopefully we can plan a Spring trip soon. This time I want to stay on site or bring a car with me so I can get around and enjoy all there is.

Every year Canadians travel down to the warm area to visit the awesome park. Filled with fun and magical characters, there is no place like it. One day I would like to also visit Disneyland in California as it is somewhere I have not been yet. Having been to the Florida destination a few times over the years, I know it is a great place no matter what your age is. 

To celebrate summer (you all know Disney loves a celebration :)) I have a fabulous giveaway for my Canadian readers.

disney prize


Prize includes a fabulous Disney bag, Canada Mickey pin, pen, autograph book, Mickey ears and 4 plush characters. Just like pictured above. This prize is perfect for anyone planning a trip to Disney or wanting to have a mini staycation and watch Disney movies while playing along with the characters.
