After two weeks off I’m back to share some of my favorite Magical Moments with Disney!
The very first thing we did at Disney last spring was to take our kids to the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique where they were properly “Princessed” and “Knighted” for our adventure. They were so adorable and all of the cast members around Walt Disney World played along: they greeted SuperGirl with a bow and a “Hello, Princess” … and random strangers graciously commented to her on how adorable she was.
We returned to our room mid-afternoon so I could get ready for the first of many amazing Disney Social Media Mom events; I spent maybe 15 minutes getting ready and when I looked over to the bed… this is what I found:
Nobody said being a princess was going to be easy.
This spring’s visit to Walt Disney World held one very memorable activity for SuperBaby. At only 2 1/2 years old he thoroughly enjoyed the parks, the rides and the food…the characters and all of the excitement….but his favorite venture was at Hollywood Studios in the Honey I Shrunk the Kids! play area.
This whole play area is designed like the Szalinkski’s backyard! There is only one entrance/exit and it is guarded by a cast member so kids can run and play…climb and jump to their heart’s content. While all of the SuperKids had fun in this oversized backyard playground….I think SuperBaby had the most fun because he was “set loose”. He wasn’t being told “Stay With Me!” or made to sit in the stroller. He could exercise some of his budding independence and use up some energy at the same time!
Sitting on top of a giant ant yelling, “Yee-Haw!” and giggling like crazy.
The 2012 Disney Social Media Moms Celebration was held at the Yacht Club. Our first night we attended a “Swashbuckler’s Soiree” on the beach. This was our first night at Disney World, and the first sunset I witness there…and it was breathtaking. Magic rings from every corner of this place. It is simply beautiful.

I’ve posted almost zero of my photos from our trip to Disney last April. I realize, however, that if I flooded my blog with them many of you would stop coming by for a visit…
I decided that every Monday I would post one of our Magical Moments from Disney. Share a story or a cute picture of my kids (did you doubt it?), or a beautiful picture I took while on our amazing trip.
Then it occurred to me that other people might want to share their Magical Moments, too…. so Monday’s Magical Moments was born. Maybe you’ll play along, maybe I’ll just have stellar, reliable, never ending content on Mondays for years to come.
Here is my very first and possibly favorite Magical Moment from Disney. Our first night at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration we participated in a Swashbuckler’s Soiree on the beach. SuperGirl had been duly “Princessed” at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique early that day and just as the sun was beginning to set she looked up and…. I kid you not…. she said:
“Mommy, look! It’s the WISHING STAR!”
And I melted.
When we went to Walt Disney World Resort in April, we decided to rent a stroller from Kingdom Strollers. I had never used a rental service before and wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, or if this was really a service we needed. Heck, I’d never even been to Disney before… I had no clue how a stroller would fare in the parks. If you are having the same doubts, see my post “7 Reasons You Should Rent a Stroller from Kingdom Strollers for Your Next Disney World Vacation” and know that this is the right decision to make.
After I signed up for the service I was contacted by the owner Matt and one thing led to another and I agreed to do a review of their service and their product in exchange for a free rental during our stay at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.
I keep rattling off all of the great things about the strollers and the service. I’ve been told that a really good review will also point out the negatives, it will be well rounded. So here goes.
That’s it. Those are the only two things that I can think of as negative aspects of the entire experience.
A Couple of Side Notes:
Renting a stroller can be one of the easiest decisions you make and using Kingdom Strollers will make your experience even better!
While I did receive a stroller rental in return for a review of the product and the service, all of the opinions in this post are my own. Would I have it any other way???
