Friday Favorites–Disney Inspired

As you read this, I’m in Disneyland.  Yep, probably waiving my arms in the air on California Screamin’, trying not to get “It’s a Small World” stuck in my head or standing in a line in the new Cars Land.  I know two things – I am having fun and I’m not coming back until I have to.

We’ve made many trips to Disneyland over the years and counted down with the kids for a couple of them, but never with a Mickey Chalkboard like this one from Happy Clippings.  Now I feel like I missed something.

This countdown from Crafting in the Rain is a clever way to show the little ones how many days are left before they understand numbers.

When my kids were each about two years old, they had a favorite Disney movie.  When I say favorite, I mean we had to watch it at least once every day.  For my daughter, it was The Lion King.  That was back in the days of VHS and she watched it so much it developed a permanent green line at the top of the screen.  Hakuna matata.  This Simba Cutie Papercraft from Disney Family is for her.

My son’s daily dose of Disney was Toy Story.  I think we all fought the tears a little at Toy Story 3, because not only was it sweet, but it was the end of an era for our boy.  When he feels nostalgic, I can surprise him with these Green Alien Cupcakes from Disney Family.

Speaking of cupcakes, what better Disney decoration than the Mouse himself?  Love these Mickey Cupcakes from Sweet Tooth.

I saw these Mickey Mouse Washer Necklaces from A Creative Princess on Pinte…err…the internet a while back and immediately stashed the link away for future use.

There are a bajillion tutorials for Disney shirts out there (I even did one myself recently), but what I love about these DIY Disney Shirts from Two Oh Two Seven is that pirate scarf.  I can’t guarantee I’m not wearing one of these right now.

Whenever we have a Disney trip planned, I find myself getting in the mood well in advance.  I start wanting to put Disney stuff everywhere, which is why these Mickey Mouse Hotpads from Taffy Talk would be perfect in my kitchen.

This Disney Travel Activity Kit from A Creative Princess would be a perfect plane or car activity for the commute to the Happiest Place on Earth.

It seems like you always need a bag for something while in the park, and this simple little DIY Drawstring Backpack from Brassy Apple would be perfect.

If you want to get your Disney on in more of a tote style, check out this bag from Disney Family.

If you’re older than 9 you cannot wear a costume into a Disney park.  It’s a rule I completely agree with and understand the reasoning behind.  But if you want to wear an outfit inspired by your favorite Disney character that’s perfectly fine and the brilliant young lady behind DisneyBound is here to help you with your look.  I could spend hours looking through her style boards.

Since today is also my 21st wedding anniversary, I’d like to tell the world what an amazing man I married.  He’s generous, supportive, funny, thoughtful and I’m lucky beyond words to be his wife.  Now we’re going to take a romantic tumble down the Tower of Terror together.  See you next week!
