Walt Disney said a lot of inspiring things, but he also said a lot of things that at the time, I imagine he never knew would be remembered long after his death. One example, is in the movie Blades of Glory, one of Disney's fairly well known quotes, also spoken by the actors, was on a huge banner on the ice rink wall. "If you can dream it, you can do it." I love to find these little pieces of Disney Magic throughout the every day, but it's even more amazing to think that something someone might have said in casual conversation, in a letter, or to his staff to motivate them, might be used 30, 40 or 50 years later, still motivating and encouraging others! Walt Disney had a lot of important things to say, things that are relevant, even today.
Here 10 of my favorite Walt Disney Quotes you may never have heard before!
We are not trying to entertain the critics. I'll take my chances with the public.
A man should never neglect his family for business
Get in. Not choose but get it. Be part of it and then move up. I've always has that feeling about things. And it upsets me so much when people want to get into something but they're too darn choosy about what they want to do. Get in while you have a chance to at least look and see, and out if it might come something.
All the adversity I've has in my life, all my troubles and obstacles have strengthened me.
There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates' loot on Treasure Island and at the bottom of the Spanish Main...best of all you can enjoy these riches every day of your life.
Never get bored or cynical. Yesterday is a thing of the past.
The way to keep children out of trouble is to keep them interested in things. Lecturing to children is no answer to delinquency. Preaching won't keep kids out of trouble. But keeping their minds occupied will.
Of all of our inventions for mass communication, pictures still speak the most universally understood language.
Why do we have to grow up? I know more adults who have the children's approach to life. They're people who don't give a hang to what the Jonses do. You see them at Disneyland every time you go there. They're not afraid to be delighted with simple pleasures, and they have a degree of contentment with what life has brought -- sometime's it isn't much, either.
I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing, that it was all started by a mouse.

Once again Michael's is gearing up for Disney summertime fun, and this week, they are doing Disney crafts for 70% off! Each store's selection, and even sales might be different, but stop by to add a little Disney to your summer, at 70% off! Here are a few fun things they've got!
There's a whole lot more, so what are you waiting for? I know I'm stocking up!
Disney and Juicy Juice have teamed up with an "Incredible" offer! But any 3 specially marked packages of Juicy Juice Juice Boxes (easy to find, look for the ones with the Incredibles on them) then go online and enter the code to get a Fandano movie ticket good for ANY Disney movie. There are so many great Disney movies coming out this year, and as long as you use your code by March, 2019, it's good for any of them. The ticket is only valid up to $7.50, so if you have an overpriced movie theater like we do, you might still have to pay a few dollars, but it's still an awesome deal! What are you going to see? We are thinking Ant Man and the Wasp, then Mary Poppins or Wreck it Ralph this fall!
Are you like me? You get to your hotel and realize you forgot to pack something really important. I think the worst was a few years back, when I didn't realize my toddler was "helping" when I packed. Every time I packed something for my oldest, the youngest would pull it out it when I turned around. The result was we got to our hotel, and my oldest had no pants, or shorts or in the suitcase and the youngest stood there giggling at my panic. That was not a very fun late night trip to the nearest Walmart in an unfamiliar area with a very picked over children's section.
Despite the occasional adventure like that, or those little things I always inevitably leave behind, there is one thing that usually goes into the suitcase first. Sunscreen.
You know you'll need your sunscreen at some point, Disney doesn't have a lot of shade at it's parks, and it won't take long for the sun to start baking you, but I've got 5 not so obvious reason's that you'll want to pack your sunscreen before you head to Disney that you might not have thought of!
1. Sunburn makes you feel so much hotter!
Ever noticed that when you have even just a tiny bit of sunburn, you feel so much hotter? Who wants that, when you are already spending you summer in a southern state? It's hard sometimes to make yourself take a break when there's so much great stuff to see, but trust me! You'll feel a lot worse with sunburn! Stop and put it on at least every 2 hours.
2. Sunscreen costs way more at Disney
One trip, I thought out 2 bottles for a family of 4 would be enough. It wasn't, so I ended up getting some while at Magic Kingdom. It was at LEAST 50% higher than what I had paid at Target. I bought it anyway, it was important we had had it, but now, I always pack at least 4 bottles, because with sales and coupons, I can usually get the brands and style we prefer, for much less than retail.
3. You might not find your preferred style or brand of sunscreen
We usually are a Banana Boat family, but that day at the Magic Kingdom, the only thing for sale, was Coppertone Baby, and I had no idea how the family's skin would react (I have two very sensitive skinned boys) and there was only a choice of the lotion type, no spray or sticks. Luckily, they did okay, but if you know for a fact, like we do, that there is a brand that will give you a rash, or make you burn even if you've applied it, make sure you are packing your favorite!
4. You're going to use more sunscreen than you think
If you really put on your sunscreen every 2 hours, you really are going to use more than you think, especially if you use the spray sunscreens. This is part of why we ran out so quickly, I think. It seemed like every time we tried to use the spray, the wind would start blowing it anywhere but on us, and I swear, half the bottle was gone the first day just because of that. Now, we use spray for the legs, and lotion for the face, neck, ears and arms. No eye stinging, (because it will hurt terribly, with spray) and the sunscreen gets on you, instead of the person nearby.
5. Disney sunscreen isn't at Disney!
Disney sells the plain sunscreen. It's not super cute, it's just plain functional, which is great, but if a little ahead of time prep (and yes, fun shopping for your trip!) can add a little more Disney in your day, why not do it? Check out these AWESOME sunscreens, all available RIGHT NOW at Target (maybe other stores too, but that's where I just got ours). These will put a little Disney into wherever you are, and whatever you are doing this summer! Hey, I'm not above suggesting to my wiggly 5 year old that maybe if he wears the superhero sunscreen, maybe he'll soak in some super powers!
No matter what type of sunscreen you use, just make sure to reapply it! It won't do you any good if it's in your backpack, and not on you!
Do you have any Uhoh no sunscreen adventures, or other packing mistake stories to share? I'd love to hear them!
Last week Disey released an amazing line of Disney merchendise! You'll find it all there, home, beauty, clothes, kitchen, camping, food, just everything!
Items are scattered throughout the store, and this is a ONE SHIPMENT thing. Once it's gone, it's gone!
Here are a few of our favorites, though it by no means a complete collection. There are hundreds of items, and they are all incredibly priced. Remember...if you like it, buy it. My store has already sold out at least a third of what they got in last week! Some of this IS available on Target.com, so you can always browse on there, too! Sorry for some of the pictures being darker. The camera on my phone isn't nearly as good as on Mr Disney Magic's phone!
3 lidded containers for just $10! Matching serving bowl too! Borrowed the online pic, since mine is in the dishwasher currently! I bought them both!
These cups come in 2 different sizes. Our store didn't have enough, so had to order more on Target.com
Patches and pins, from $5 to $8!
Popcorn buckets and Mickey suckers!
Lots of great stuff!! Happy shopping!
