It was only a matter of time, right? No more plastic straws in the parks, (for free) but now, you can be the proud owner of reusable Disney straws! Sarcasm aside, luckily, these aren't too expensive, ($10 for 8) and they would be a fun and inexpensive way to add a little Disney to your day, or a great souvenir for the folks back home. Let's be honest here...these ARE going home with me in a few weeks, even if I won't use them there.
These straws come with a brush to clean them, however, they are NOT dishwasher safe. I wonder if they would melt, or survive! If you buy a pack, let me know!
Not getting to the park any time soon? You can buy them from ShopDisney! Just click here, or on the picture and you'll go right to their page.
I'm hoping for a few different colors to match all of my Rapid Refill Mugs! how about you?
Are you one of those people that can't pass by a pressed penny machine without stopping for a souvenir? Disney make's it very easy to indulge in that adventure, with over well over 100 different machines on Disney World property!
You can press pennies, and in a few select locations, you can even press quarters!
In case you need a place to put all those pressed coins, most of the gift shops sell a nice looking souvenir pressed coin book. Click the picture below to buy one before your trip, at the ShopDisney site!
While we have never done anything with ours other than collect, I have seen some amazing things made out of these pressed coins! Necklaces, bracelets and keychains are all ideas if you don't want to just keep them in a book.
If you have ever wished that you had a map of the locations of each machine, Disney is there to help! Recently they added the location of each machine in the My Disney Experience App, but you can also click here, to go to the official Disney website and browse locations or print maps!
Are you going to be hunting for these on your next trip?
Do you like to Disney up your phone? I do! A year or so I discovered an amazing app that if you don't already know about, you will love!
Just go to google play, or the apple store, and search for ZEDGE. Zedge is an amazing app with more FREE wallpapers, notifications and ringtones that you can count, all searchable. They have so much on there, not just Disney, but why would you want anything else?!
Search by Disney, or, be specific, like Moana, or Peter Pan. I suggest that you search both ways. It all depends on the person who uploaded it as to how specific they were with the title, I have found Peter Pan ringtones under Disney, but not Peter Pan, and so on. If you are missing the monorail spiel, that's on there too!
You can save favorites, download to your phone, and bring a little Disney every where you go!!
Recently I was told about an awesome Etsy seller. She is a must for any allergy parent, OR Disney lover! The owner of this shop, is a frequent Disney goer, so knows what you need, in, or out, of The Magic Kingdom.
Since I just posted about going on vacation with allergies, I wanted to share my recent purchase! This is what I ordered, two magnetic signs for our front door to remind us to take the epipens when we leave the house. Only $5 each! Click on the picture to go right to the listing.
I was thrilled with the quality, the price and the fast shipping. While I didn't order anything custom Disney right now, and if you browse her site, you won't see much listed, she does custom orders, and from talking with her, can make just about anything you want! You can't get more custom than that!
Need something Disney, or allergy or maybe even both? Drop her a note, and support both a Disney lover, and an Allergy Mom!
Do you remember the adorable Mickey goldfish crackers that appeared to help celebrate Mickey's 90th? They are back, with with an on the go, portable, or giftable size! I spotted (and promptly bought) these at Target. There are 24 mini bags, and these would be cute to send in for snacktime or as valentines, but I am actually going to save them in case I can't get more, for our upcoming Disney trip! Goldfish were already on the list,and I just know as yummy as these will taste, they will have a bit of extra magic while eaten in the Magic Kingdom!
If you are looking for them yourself, check in the section where they have the Valentine treats. These were $6.99.
Planning to get yourself some? I don't blame you! Going to Disney soon? Taking your own snacks to Disney is an awesome way to save a bundle, did you know that? They are really generous with how much food you can bring in. Click here, to read all about it!
