Disney Magic!

Hey everyone! Glad to see you back here today! Hope you are having a great week!! 

I told you on Monday that I would tell you more about my big vacation! It really was a magical trip. My boys were the perfect ages to enjoy everything that the Disney Wonder had to offer! Best part, they spent at least 4 hours a day in the Kids Program which was incredible! Making Flubber, cooking class, Toy Story Boot Camp...my boys were in heaven. And I got to work on my tan ;)

We stopped at Puerto Vallarta and had 2 days in Cabo San Lucas. We loved both stops! We fell in love with Cabo and hope to return soon. And PV was incredible because of our dolphin swim!!

{btw...this little girl lost her little camera on the ship so all the pictures I am showing are photos that I bought the rights to. Worth every penny :) }

 

Crossed this off my bucket list!! Loved that I got to do it with my entire family :)



Lucky little nuggets!


And what would a Disney Trip be without some characters??!



Pirate Night was the BEST :) Fireworks off the top of the boat!


I knew that I wanted to make some Disney autograph books for my boys. That is such a fun part of a Disney trip! And the characters were ALL OVER the boat, way more than at Disney Parks.


I used the Great Vacation Stack which I love! For the covers and used 5x7 flat canvases. I used Mod Podge to get the paper down and the Mickey ears. When I Mod Podged over the top I sprinkled a little glitter before it dried. Hand painted their names and added some buttons. The pages are just cardstock cut down to 4x6. 


They loved the books...and they got a lot of attention from the Disney employees :) Store bought autograph books are soooo boring ;)


I wish I had more photos to show!! My dad took plenty so luckily I have all of his. I just need to get them so I can make my scrapbook!!

Have a great day!! See you back here on Friday. And don't forget to leave comments on all of the blog posts to be entered in our weekly giveaways!!

  59. We purchased a few of the Disney digitals a couple years ago when my husband and I visited the Magic Kingdom by ourselves. They are expensive, but so worth it if you lose your camera or don't have anyone with you to take those fun group shots. Glad you were able to get some great pictures of what look like amazing memories!
