I have been using the Target Dry Spray for a couple of weeks. I really love the ease of using the dry spray and the scent. My husband is enjoying the men's version, too. This has an easy aerosol applicator and is very long lasting. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a new dry spray. We really put this dry spray to the test by working out and testing freshness. It really held up!
Disney is offering a new experience that you can set up before you even leave home, Fastpass+. Gone are the days of ticket machines and worrying you will lose your Fastpass. Approximately 60 days before you leave for your vacation you can set up your Fastpass+.. This does take a bit of planning. It you are following my "getting started" tips, you will have no trouble when making your selections.
Things to consider when making Fastpass+ reservations, all choices should be in the same park. Especially if you are going during a peak season. We just returned from 10 days over the Christmas/New Years holiday time and really enjoyed using the Fastpass+ system as this is a REALLY busy time at the resort. You also want to get the passes as early in the morning as possible. Disney requires you to use ALL THREE passes before you can make another selection.
When you are making your selections, you will notice your attractions are broken down into different categories. The best I can tell, it is separated by ride popularity. Being that I was new to the system I just booked a little haphazardly and regretted some of my choices later. All of your choices can be monitored through the My Disney Experience App.
Here are some of my recommendations:
Attractions you will want a Fastpass+ for if possible:
Festival of the Lion King
Attractions to skip Fastpass+ at Animal Kingdom
The Finding Nemo show, as I mention later we found that using a Fastpass+ for most shows is unnecessary.
Jingle Cruise (Jungle Cruise at holiday time)
Peter Pan's Flight (My son and I waited 20 minutes with a Fastpass+ for this one. I never saw the standby line below 65 minutes)
Seven Dwarf Mine Train*
Attractions to skip Fastpass+ at Magic Kingdom
Aladdin's Flying Carpets
Tomorrow land attractions (we went here first thing in the morning, especially with the Magic Hour for staying at the resort and didn't need to waste a Fastpass+ here)
Toy Story Mania
Tower of Terror
Rock 'n' Roller Coaster
Notes to consider about Fastpass+ at Hollywood Studios
Soarin' *rumor has it that Soarin' is closing down for a major rehabilitation
There is not much you would need a Fastpass+ for in the World Showcase section of Epcot. Instead think about looking into some dining reservations at a few of the hard to get locations. Please check out my blog on Disney Dining tips and tricks!

I made this delicious dip today for a baby shower! It was a huge hit. I added 1/3 of a cup of butter instead of the whole stick. The reviews I had read said it was too buttery, so I decided to cut it back just a little. I served it with pretzels, vanilla cookies, and graham crackers. Yummy!

We decided in July of 2012 that we would do Disney World for Christmas 2015. You see, July 2012 marked the first trip for myself, my husband, and our 2 year old son to Walt Disney World (WDW). Having grown up in California, we have done a lot of Disneyland (I will leave the rest of those details for another time and place). Our families never made it to Disney World. We decided after 7 years of marriage and a child, we were ready to take the plunge and plan the trip to WDW. So, we packed up our son and flew across the country. The trip was amazing. To the point that we couldn't believe we hadn't done it before. While at Epot, on a particularly humid July afternoon, we were drawn to the Disney Vacation Club booth which happened to be right next to a splash pad for our son to play. After listening to the initial pitch and set up a meeting with a sales rep, we decided to invest in DVC. Again another story for another time, but let's just say that initial purchase has changed our lives and the lives of our children.
So anyway, that planned Christmas trip seemed like a lifetime away. Our oldest son was just 2 and I was pregnant with our second son. We chose Christmas 2015, because our oldest would be (is now!) in school by then and getting away during the year would be impossible, also our soon to have been baby would be 3. Well the time is upon us. We booked our reservation in January. That's right people, January 2015 for a trip that is in December 2015. You see, we have Disney Vacation Club (DVC) and our home resort is Animal Kingdom Lodge in WDW. I am someone that always overplays and over prepares. Think too much food a barbecue, planning vacations well in advance, all those fears rolled into one have become this trip to WDW. Like most parents (especially over planning moms!) you just want it all to be perfect.
Let me bring you up to speed on what we have done so far, we were up at 4 am to make room reservations, everything operates on East Coast time. I worked summer school to pay for admission tickets, the cost of this trip is about double the last one. We had to buy four meal plans, four admission tickets, and four airline tickets. The last trip, our oldest son was two, he got in for free and ate off our plates. Fast forward to 180 days before arrival. I have heard of people going to Disney World during particularly busy times (think Christmas, 4th of July) without dining reservations and not being able to get in anywhere. Then, I have heard of people walking right in to some of the most coveted restaurants. Well see above about my over planning and concern for things not working out. Needless to say, I had a spread sheet and we made reservations 180 days out. It worked out, we got a lot of great reservations. One thing I really love about WDW versus Disneyland is the meal plans. We can do character dining at no additional cost.
So here was are about 120 days on a trip that our whole family is very excited about. At this point I am trying to decide if we want to add an in room celebration for a little extra magic (and a lot of extra money) to celebrate Christmas away from home. Stay tuned for what we decided. I have included some of my favorite pictures from that first trip that started it all. :)
We are about 120 days out and the whole family is getting excited. We decided to do a different movie every Saturday to count down.

I got this awesome product free. It really does work. We have been doing some intense workouts and Secret Outlast has really held up to the challenge. I really like how there are no white streaks on my clothes and there is no weird film on my skin. I would really recommend this product to any active woman. #momhack #gotitfree #bzzagent
This week I am trying a new product, Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs ®. I am excited to see how it works. If it can limit sun exposure while giving me a bronze glow, I am all about it. I have included the link to the Sally Hansen website. There is a $2 off coupon available for you to try too.
