Traveling With Minnie Ears

Yesterday I shared my Minnie Ear Obsession with you. Now I have a question for all my fellow Disney loving Minnie ear wearing fans. How do you pack your Minnie ears when traveling? I’ve had a few ideas but none have panned out so far. I don’t want to just “throw” them in a bag but I want them protected too.

A Few Things That Have Been On My Mind

🏝 Each day I inch closer and closer to my return to the Outer Banks. I am so excited. As much as I like going to Disney, Corolla feeds my soul.

⚓️ After watching the Outdaughtered episode where they went on a Disney Cruise, I want to go on another one so bad and I want to take the kids on one.

🍔 I’ve been watching the Great Food Truck Race this summer but could not bring myself to watch the final because I really could not stand either of the two teams competing for the win.

🎬 I have seen Toy Story 4 and The Lion King but have not seen Aladdin yet and honestly I’m kind of torn if I want to see it or not. I did like the other two movies. I will admit I’m a little confused how they will do a Toy Story 5 (if there is going to be one).

👧🏻👦🏻👩🏻👱🏻‍♀️ The kids are growing up so fast. The oldest graduated high school and starts college soon. My boy is starting Kindergarten in a few weeks and the his younger sister will start her last year of Preschool. And their older sister is starting 5th grade. (Proud Auntie Moments)

🥞 Cracker Barrel used to be the one place, while traveling especially, you could depend on a good meal, but they have gone down hill. They need to step it up a little. I can’t stand to go their anymore. And the one that is close to me is the worst one ever.

⭐️ I know what I’m about to say is not going to go over with some people but I don’t care, I’m going to say it anyway. I really wish they were not putting Star Wars Land at Disney World. I feel like it is because of it that the prices keep going up (even on annual passes) and I really could care less to even see what it looks like.

📺 I am currently on a free trail of HBO through Amazon and I watched a few episodes of Big Little Lies and I must say I really don’t understand it. Maybe I haven’t watched enough yet I’m not sure.

Raising Disney Kids

I guess it is a good sign you are helping to raise them to be Disney Loving Kids when the four year old requests to go stay at the Disney Hotel after you pick her up from day care. Melt my heart moment.

Southern Belle Charm on Instagram

I hope everyone is enjoying the July fun on Instagram. I love taking pictures and visiting fun and exciting places, so I am loving being able to share some of my pictures with you.

Recharging

Today was my first day this week I had to check into reality. I broke down and took a few days off to recharge. It was so nice. A few days of not having to rush, being able to sleep in, being able to take an afternoon nap if I wanted and the freedom to take a shower whenever. I thought I would read more but I didn’t. We did however decide to go to Frankenmuth Michigan for a few days. That helped for a nice change of pace too. It was really hard checking back into reality today. On the plus side I have two days to ease back in this week.

Goodbye Shop Disney Parks App

Tomorrow is the end of an era for me. The Shop Disney Parks app is going away and I’m really going to miss it. I loved being able to see where I might be able to find something in the park plus be able to get my passholder discount. That is the one thing I dislike most about Shop Disney, not being able to get my passholder discount.

Goodbye Shop Disney Parks, I’m going to miss you.
