Disney Almost Wordless Wednesday – February

Posted in Wordless Wednesdays with tags , , on February 1, 2012 by Lucinda

The theme this week at Focused on the Magic is “February Calendar Shots.” My choice is a photo of my middle child in front of Minnie’s gazebo back on December 10, 2010. Perfect fit for the month of love. Is it not?

Disney Blog Hop – Disney Bucket List

Posted in Thoughts & Opinions with tags , , , on January 26, 2012 by Lucinda

Welcome to the “Disney Blog Hop”…brought to you weekly by Babes in Disneyland. Sincerest thanks to Lisa for providing blog readers and blog writers a place to gather and share Disney passion and information.

This week’s topic is “Disney Bucket List.”

Everyone knows what a bucket list is and many have actually written one. I’ve seen Disney bucket list memes before, but I’ve not ever in my life thought about what mine would include. I think it’s finally time to make one.

1. Behind the Seeds – Living with the Land is easily one of my most favorite attractions at Walt Disney World. I love plants and I’m an avid gardener. One of my oldest daughter’s childhood friends is a manager there and I’m just fascinated and curious about the work she does. I’d love to know more about what’s going on beyond the boat ride. I hope to cross this off my list on my next visit to Walt Disney World…and I hope to do this SOON!


Wave “hello” to Laura!

2. Revamp DizzneeMomma.com – I have a long mental list of changes for this blog. I want to become a self- hosted site to give myself more freedom to control my design. I’m currently reading Blog Critique (thanks Donna!) and sitting in on free programming methodology lectures from Stanford.

I want to include more Disney crafts, recipes and party ideas…my head is full of them. I also want to write a formal proposal for a family grand gathering and submit basic park information as blog posts directed towards my sisters. There’s just so much I want to do, that I often overwhelm myself. I need to write up a blog plan and attack it in manageable segments.

3. Family Grand Gathering – For years I’ve hoped to travel to WDW with my four sisters, our families, our father and stepmother. This is no easy feat with all the different schedules and travel budgets. Still, I plan to give it one last shot with my “Sister Series” posts as I attempt to advise and coerce my beloved siblings into a Magical Disney Family Reunion. This ain’t going to be easy. Send pixie dust, folks!

4. Walt Disney World Cast Member – This wish has been with me deeply since late 1998. I’ve actually applied to the Walt Disney Company numerous times and hold each rejection letter dearly as memories of my journey to obtain this goal. I quit applying during the pregnancy and birth of my two youngest children, but they’re school age now…and the fire is burning inside me again…hotter than ever. I want to be a Walt Disney World cast member!

So…what’s on your Disney Bucket List? You don’t have to have a blog to share. Just leave a comment about what Disney wishes you have yet to fulfill.

Disney Wordless Wednesday – Best of Times V – Wildlife

Posted in Wordless Wednesdays with tags , , , , on January 25, 2012 by Lucinda

This week concludes my “Best of Times” series with my favorite photos from trips taken in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Any further submissions for this would require more Walt Disney World vacations. I’m definitely ready for that to happen. Sadly, my budget isn’t.

“Wildlife” is the theme over at Focused on the Magic‘s “Almost Wordless Wednesday” blog hop so I did my best to fit in there as I made my picks. This has caused me to embarrass myself again this week with yet another unflattering photo of myself. See me in my triceratops doing my best Nixon impression? Oh boy. Thanks, Deb. ;o)

December 2, 2009 – Wild Drummer

February 10, 2010 – Wild Party (2010 DSMM)

May 31, 201 – Wild Abandon

The Disney Blog Hop – Special Smiles with the Characters

Posted in Thoughts & Opinions with tags , , , , , on January 19, 2012 by Lucinda

The Disney Blog Hop is back in full force over at Babes in Disneyland. If you’re a Disney blog reader or writer, click over and check out the posts from all the great bloggers that have joined in. If you have a Disney post to share, please join us!

This week, the topic is “Special Smiles with the Characters.”

Now, up until May of 2006, character interactions with my group were a really small part of our overall Walt Disney World vacation. The difference in 2006, was the addition of a new Disney travel buddy…my then 21 month-old daughter, Miss Ivanka. It was actually her 2nd visit to Walt Disney World, but she was able to participate so much more this time.

This was our first year for table service dining as well. It was quite a leap, but I really wanted to get out of the quick service and food court rut of our previous stays.

My baby girl was quite petite at the time and although I was a little worried that she might be terrified of the giangantic characters, I booked several character meals and hoped for the best.

I should have never worried and I wish I had taken the leap much sooner. Those interactions with the characters were some of the most magical experiences I’ve ever had in the World. Luckily…it was also the first year that my photos started getting good. I hope you can feel the Magic in these shots…and I hope I’ve helped you to have a very Disney day.

Smile everybody!!! :o)

Disney Almost Wordless Wednesday – Best of Times IV

Posted in Wordless Wednesdays with tags , , , , , on January 18, 2012 by Lucinda

Welcome to part four of my “Best of Times” photo series. The theme at Focused on the Magic this week is “Water, Water Everywhere.” I tried my best to fit the theme there, while sticking with my original plan and I think I did ok. I do have some water in two of my photos at least…and me in a bathing suit to boot. Now how brave is that?!?

December 15, 2007

My young prince did actually pull the sword from the stone. It usually only sticks out 4 or 5 inches past the hilt.
