Walt Disney World has been using Magic Bands for a while now, and I felt it was time to start a discussion on how well you, the reader, park Guest, and Disney officianado, like (or dislike) the whole My Magic+ system.  Please take a few moments and answer some of these questions for me:

  1. What do you think of the My Magic+ system in general?
  2. Do you use the My Disney Experience section of the Disney website or the App, or neither?
  3. What do you think of the Magic Bands — like them, leave them, or something in between?
  4. Lastly, what do you think of the FastPass+ system?

Please take a moment and answer these questions via our survey — I’d love to see your answers, and also would like to hear your feedback, so feel free to leave comments, too!

Thank you for taking time to answer our poll questions!  Remember, I love to hear what you think of things, so please, feel free to leave comments to expand on the questions we have in our survey!  Thanks again, and go out and make it a great Disney Day!

Blogging over at A Disney Mom’s Thoughts!

WDW 9-111

Today, my friends, I’m joining my good friend Beth over at her site, as we talk about what it’s like to visit and stay at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa.  I was lucky enough to be able to do so a couple of years ago, and wrote my thoughts down for Beth to share with her readers!  In the post, you’ll see some of the following:

  • Pictures of the room we stayed in.
  • Pictures of the lobby.
  • Pictures of the exterior of the building.
  • Links over to the official Disney page.

To access the post, please click on the image to head over to the post, or on the link below.

Thanks for stopping by, I’ll see you on the flip side over at A Disney Mom’s Thoughts!

Kids Corner Preview

{Editor’s Note: My daughter Sophie joins us today with a preview of an idea that’s been bouncing around for a while — the Kids Corner.  Here’s her preview, I hope you enjoy! ~ Mike}

Kids-Corner

Hey Kids! I’m assuming you haven’t seen the “Kid’s Corner” yet. So here’s the scoop. My name is Sophie. My Dad, Mike, runs the blog. He’s also a travel agent, so if your ‘rents want to plan a WDW trip, he’s the guy to call. ;)

My big, happy, Disney Family!!!

As for me, you can probably tell that I’m a kid too. So if you have any questions about Disney for me, I can probably answer them. Questions like:

  • “How many times have you been to Disney?” I can answer that one off the top of my head. The answer is: I have gone to Disney 12 times, the tradition started in 2005.
  • “How many hidden Mickeys are in Walt Disney World?” That one may take some research… by the way, the answer is: over 1,000 (I Googled it).

But, yes. Ask me any Question, and when you get your answer, just call me “Miss Disney-know-it-all.” Just kidding, don’t call me that. That, you might say is “part one” of my Kids Corner intro. And it is! So check back later.

2014 In Pictures!

2014

Happy New Year, everyone!  On this, the last day of 2014, I am taking a moment to share with you some of my favorite memories from the year — in picture format!  If you like looking at Disney photos like I do, this post is absolutely for you!  Have a peek, and thanks!  As always, a big thank you goes out to all of you for stopping by, for reading, for sharing, for commenting, and for choosing My Dreams of Disney as one of your places to go for your Disney fix.  Now, here is our Year In Review.  I hope you enjoy!  All of the images you see below are configured so that if you click on the picture, it will open the post that the picture is from.

Anna

January saw us looking fondly at loved ones that we had recently lost — in our case, Cindy’s Uncle Bob. Suddenly, the question “Do you want to build a snowman?” took on more meaning…

In February, we had a post about our favorite Disney memories. In this case, we were looking at our favorite Disney memories from 2011!


In March, we started our 100 Days til Disney countdown – our look at 100 things we wanted to explore on our upcoming trip.


In April, I wrote one of my favorite Magical Blogorail posts — a comparison between New Orleans Square and Liberty Square, and which one I like best.

In May, one of the things we counted down on was ways that we can celebrate Disney Magic.


Festival of the Lion King

In June, Sophie wrote a post about a special Circle of Life video that her band class did near the end of school. Have a look, and enjoy!


Disney Music Monday

In July, we started a short lived series called #DisneyMusicMonday, with a look at the incredible Julie Andrews and the music of Mary Poppins.


Robin Williams

In August, we, along with the rest of the world, mourned the loss of Robin Williams, who was the Genie in Aladdin.

In September, we wrote about the ways that Disney can help us deal with grief for the Magical Blogorail.

In October, we hit a bit of a blogging rut — the words just wouldn’t come out of the keyboard! Despite that, we wrote about education at Liberty Square for the Magical Blogorail.


Happy Birthday Mickey

In November, we celebrated the birthday of our favorite Mouse couple — Mickey & Minnie!


Walt-Disney

We started off December by remembering Walt Disney, who was born on December 5th, 1901.

Pirates

We continued the month by writing about 5 facts about the Pirates of the Caribbean that will impress your friends!

Lastly, we wrote about how Pixar short films (and Disney ones, too) are the best thing since sliced bread!


I hope that our year in Pictures has brought enjoyment to you, and a good reflection on some of the things that we have done this year.  It has been a full year, full of joy, fun, laughter, exciting Disney memories, and wonder, but there has also been sadness.  My prayer for each and every one of you is that this year is better now than it was when the year started, and that your 2015 is full of happiness, joy, Peace, wonder, prosperity, and love.  Please be safe if you are traveling, and remember, if you enjoy some adult beverages, please do not drink and drive.
