Whatever Wednedsay- When To Add Park Hopper


To hop or not to hop?


 
Adding park hopper to your park tickets can be a wonderful addition, or a big fat waste of money. When I planned our first family trip we bought the park hopper option. We ended up having to return those tickets {we bought them through undercover tourist, but then ended up staying on property and didn't need them}. When we decided on our package through Disney we ended up without hopper and it was the right decision for us at the time. So here is how I advise clients on when to buy park hopper and when not to.

runDisneyBounding



Welcome to this month's Blogorail Yellow Loop. Today we are sharing DisneyBounding ideas for you and your family.



I love this topic so much! Did you see my post last week about putting together outfits on Polyvore? I've never considered myself into fashion, but I'm really enjoying it! I'm also very much on a runDisney kick right now since I'm training for the Princess Half Marathon in February 2016. One of the best parts about runDisney events are the costumes! People dress in some way elaborate costumes, but I'm going for more of a DisneyBounding type costume. I want to resemble the character instead of wearing a costume. I put together some ideas that I'm kicking around.
 
Captain Jack Sparrow
 
 
Merida
 
Inside Out

 



 
Big Hero 6

 




 
 
If you like any of this runDisneyBounding outfits check out my polyvore page. All the info on where to buy the items and what they cost is there.
 
So what do you think? Who should I dress as? I think I'm leaning toward Captain Jack Sparrow.

Thrifty Thursday- How To Save 7% on Your Next Disney Vacation


Everyone loves to save money!
 
 
I love this tip and part of it came from a client, the other part cane from another Wishdrawals Agent-Emily! 7% off doesn't sound like a lot, but after $1,000 that's $70 and $2,000 its $140! That's great money that you can put toward souvenirs, extra snacks, or gas/air line tickets!

Whatever Wednesday- Park Touring Outfits


I love Polyvore! It's like shopping without having to pay for anything or worrying if the clothes fit!
 



You could say I'm a little excited about our upcoming trip to WDW in February. Just a touch! Lately I've become obsessed with Polyvore. I love picking out different outfits and seeing what would look good together. Since I'm in ultra planning mode and spending too much time on a fashion website I thought I would start getting an idea for what I plan to pack. That will give me plenty of time to purchase anything I need to go with any outfits.
 
If there is anything here you like, check out my Polyvore page. Each set contains links to every item as well as prices.

Take With You Tuesday runDisney Edition- Hydration Belt


What should you pack for a racecation?
 

 
I've been writing this blog for over a year now, and I feel like I have well covered what to pack for a typical Disney vacation. I'm going to start covering other types of Disney vacations like Disney Cruise Line vacations, Disney Water Park vacations, and runDisney racecations! If you've been following my blog than this will come as no shock to you- I'm going to be starting with racecations!
 
What is a racecation? Its when us crazy runners think its a good idea to not only run an ungodly amount of miles, but then also enjoy a family vacation. I know its crazy, but we just can't help ourselves.  


 As if a week long family vacation isn't enough to pack and plan for, why don't we add on a half marathon on top?

Really let that sink it.
 


So anyway, my first item that I won't leave home without is my hydration belt. My wonderful hubs surprised me with this one for Mother's Day. It's on Amazon for $35. I read some reviews and people complained about their arms hitting the water bottles. Simple solution- turn the bottles around so the spout follows your hips. Easy.  It fits my phone {iPhone 5s}, but barely. I can squeeze some Starbursts in there too {which I love for energy replacement}. I love the bungee cords to hold your race number too. I like that much better than having it pinned to me.
 


I love this one, and you might too!

Make Something Monday- DIY runDisney Shoelace Charms


Runspiration!
 
 
 
This is a super simple project that anyone can do! I love the Walt Disney quote "If you can dream it, you can do it." I really identify with it during this journey of becoming a runner.
