Magical Blogorail Blue - Keeping the Magic Alive!



Welcome to those of you joining me from The CanaDisney Blog.  I am the 2nd stop on our Magical Blogorail Blue!  This month we're discussing how we can keep the magic alive in between trips to our favorite parks!


Everyone has their favorite ways to keep the magic alive in between trips.  I'm lucky enough to have annual trips, and have been annually (or more) for the past 10 years, so even if I have let the magic slide at home, I always had a trip right around the corner to think about.

But, now with a toddler at home, it's become even more fun to keep the magic alive.  On the trip Adam and I took when I was pregnant, we chose to end our trip a day early (yes, seriously!) and spend the money we would have spent in the parks on decorations on our kitchen.  My kitchen is currently not neat enough to take a picture of to show you, but we have a great Chef Mickey clock, dish towels, salt and pepper shakers, and a spoon rest.

Noah has finally started looking at the clock and realizing that it's his favorite Mickey Mouse!

Still in the kitchen, thanks to Target and TJ Maxx, I'm continually adding Mickey Mouse mugs, plates, bowls, and other kitchen gear.

And, one of my favorite ways to keep the magic alive - our Mickey Mouse meals:

How do you keep the magic alive?  Make sure to follow the blogorail to see how many others keep the magic alive in between trips!! Thanks for stopping by! Your next stop is Cooking with Mickey!

  1. Love your Chef Mickey clock! I like to bring home at least one Disney kitchen item each trip. Last trip it was a Mickey oven mitt and a set of dish towels. It's so nice to have a daily reminder of WDW :)

  7. I have salt & pepper shakers, a pepper grinder and a mickey spatula to keep me mickey-friendly in the kitchen! On the last trip I was given a present of 2 mickey tea towels in white & lime green. I have already been eyeing up things to buy on my next trip (179 days to go).

  8. Ah, nothing beats a Mickey pancake - they just taste better shaped that way! We have used the Mickey mold for things other than food too, like recycling soap, recycling crayons, and cutting out cookies. Fun!
