5 Minutes for Mom Ultimate Blog Party 2014 #UBP

April 4th, 2014.  Set your reminders now — the 2014 Ultimate Blog Party is underway on that date!  Running from April 4th – 11th, 2014, this is an excellent opportunity for you to experience some new blogs, have some fun, learn some things, and win some prizes!  Hosted by my friends at 5 Minutes for Mom, this is an annual blog party that truly does open up some excellent blogs for you to review!

For those of you that are new to this blog, My Dreams of Disney was started in September, 2010, as a way for me to document the memories that I and my family have of our trips to Walt Disney World.  Over the years, though, we have seen our blog expand by leaps and bounds, and now we help you plan your perfect Disney vacation!  I started as a part time travel agent in February 2013, and it is my goal here at My Dreams of Disney to help you turn My Dreams of Disney into Your Dreams of Disney!

Part of how we accomplish that is in our listing of Disney Planning Resources, as well as trip reviews, articles written with my friends at the Magical Blogorail, and more!

As part of the #UBP for 2014, I have decided to include a prize in the list of prizes to be given away during the week!  My prize will consist of the following Disney related items:

A $25 Disney Gift Card!

A $25 Disney Gift Card!

and a 50th Anniversary Edition of The Muppet Movie!

You could win this!

75 Days: Voices of Liberty

Voices of Liberty

Voices of Liberty – our choice for #Day75 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown.

Hello everyone, and welcome to #Day75 in our #DisneyWorldCountdown!  Today we are taking a look at what I believe to be one of the most under-appreciated singing shows in all of Walt Disney World — the incredible harmonic sounds of the Voices of Liberty.

This incredible singing group sings a Capella — that is, singing without any instruments at all.  They are brilliant in their ability to do this, and the songs they sing — songs about the American experience — truly bring a patriotic feeling to the main entrance to the American Adventure show.  The Voices of Liberty have also been seen at Disneyland, but they are primarily to be found at Epcot’s World Showcase in the American Adventure pavilion.

For those of you that may not have seen them — or perhaps more appropriately, heard them — here is a YouTube video I found of their rendition of “Let Freedom Ring” — it’s very well done, and well worth the time to listen to it.  I hope you enjoy it!

In addition, the Voices of Liberty also sing Christmas songs during the Christmas season at Epcot, here is one video of their singing of “Joy to the World”

To close us out this day, here are two more pictures of the Voices of Liberty — including one shot after their performance when one of them took a picture with Sophie. Thank you for stopping by today, and I urge you — if you have not heard the Voices of Liberty before, make time the next time you are at Epcot to listen to them. It is absolutely stunning, and you will not be sorry when you hear them!
