Thrifty Thursday: Purchase the Right Ticket Pacakge for You

No need to over pay!

The first mistake I made when planning my families first Disney vacation was buying tickets without doing the proper research. Oh I did research alright, just not the right kind! I ended up purchasing tickets online through Undercover Tourist {GREAT place to buy from if you are staying off property btw} and having to return them for a few reasons. One of which was it was not the right ticket package for my family. 

It's so easy to over pay for tickets. I'm going to take a look at all of the options, then you can decide what works for you.

Whatever Wednesday- runDisney 2015-2016 Schedule and Training update

New dates to look forward to! 

Running. Oh man, it's something huh?

When I started this Disney adventure I thought it would be good to experience everything I could to help people plan amazing trips. runDisney was towards the top of the list of things I wanted to experience. I am surprised at how far down this rabbit hole I have gone. I've really become consumed by training- reading everything I can, looking at costumes, going to the gym, kinesio taping, all of it! 

All that being said, I freakin' hate it. Well, I 75% hate it. The 25% that I enjoy is when I'm done for the day and I feel a great sense of accomplishment. I'm pushing myself in ways I didn't know I could, and that is a great feeling too! The rest of it is terrible.

I've lost 18 pounds in 12 weeks! I 100% love that part of it!!

Take With You Tuesday- Germ Juice {Hand Sanitizer}

Think about how many people have touched that hand rail you are touching... 

I'm not a germaphobe by any stretch, but my goodness I can't overlook the amount of germs are lurking around Disney. About 17 MILLION guests visit Disney World a year and touch EVERYTHING. Eugck...

Throw some hand sanitizer {or germ juice as my ADORABLE niece calls it} in your backpack and protect yo-self from all those oggie boogies out there. 

You can buy Disney themed travel size bottles on Amazon for $6.99. There are a ton of characters to choose from!

Take With You Tuesday: Addresses and Stamps

Everyone loves to get mail! 

When you travel to Disney, dont forget to bring along your address book and stamps. Buy postcards when you first arrive, write a quick note, then you can drop them in the mailbox right on main street. So fun! 

Your loved ones will be happy to know you thought of them!
