DIY Haunted Mansion Dollhouse

Welcome, foolish mortals, to the tour of our Haunted Mansion dollhouse. This project started because our three year old is obsessed with the Haunted Mansion and it's been his main focus for the whole time we've been stuck at home because of COVID-19.

8 Tips for Navigating Your Kid's Food Allergies at Walt Disney World

8 Tips for Navigating Your Kid's Food Allergies at Walt Disney World

As parents of a child with severe food allergies, we have found that food is our biggest concern whenever we vacation. The easiest answer (for us) would be to take snacks and squeeze pouches that we know Eva can eat and feed her only from our stash. Although that has worked for the occasional day trip, ultimately tourism is a lot about enjoying new things in a new place and that means exploring new foods. Scary...but it can be done safely at Walt Disney World! Even though we're lifelong Disney fans, I think we'd be new converts to the Disney vacation...

Our Disney Princess "Slumber Party" for Preschoolers

As you might remember, I was out of town for his first birthday so he sort of took a back burner position while I recovered from my worldly travels. We also held the party up a little bit since Kyle's mom and our niece were planning a visit for early August and we wanted them to join us. Rather randomly, they happened to be in town for Eva's first birthday, so that means they're two for two! I knew that I wanted to do a Disney theme, so we kicked...

Day Two: Our First Visit to Star Wars Galaxy's Edge

Day Two: Our First Visit to Star Wars Galaxy's Edge

Our second day in the parks was the day that we decided to try to ride Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. We had heard from friends that it was absolutely impossible to get a spot on the ride if you aren't in the park before the park opens so we figured using our extra magic morning meant that we'd have no problem getting a spot. OK, for anyone who hasn't taken a shot at this, let me break it down for you:/// Rise of the Resistance opened on January 17 at Disneyland and it's going to be very popular for a...
