Frozen Collection on Sale

by Kristi on March 25, 2015

Frozen blanket & pillow setThis is the time to stock up on all your Frozen favorites! Right now Zulily is having a HUGE sale on all things Frozen; I’m talking books, dishes, t-shirts and more! You’ll find just about anything Anna, Elsa and Olaf related! Stock is limited so order while you can.

Here are some of my Frozen favorites:

Frozen LED ArtworkI just love this Frozen LED Wall Art. For only $11.99, it is  a steal of a deal! If you are decorating a Frozen themed bedroom, they have a ton of art work, wall decals, bedding, and Frozen themed lamps.

Frozen Outfit TrunksIf you have kids that enjoy dress up, they also have a Frozen Trunk set with costumes and accessories.

Frozen themed t-shirtsSpeaking of Frozen themed clothes, they have a TON of shirts for both girls and boys!


Jeweled Dragon Acrobat Show at EpcotIf you are looking for something to keep the kids (and yourselves) entertained while touring through Epcot’s World Showcase, be sure to check out the Jeweled Dragon Acrobat Show in the China Pavillion.  It is a fantastic showcase of China culture and talent!

biàn liǎn performance at EpcotThe show begins typically on the hour in the late afternoon with a pre-show showcasing the Chinese dramatic art of biàn liǎn (or face changing) that is found in Sichuan Opera.  Both kids and adults will be mesmerized with the magical transformation mask technique!

Jeweled Dragon AcrobatsJeweled Dragon Acrobat Show is performed by a troupe of skilled Chinese acrobats.   There is little room for error in their stunts and you will be sure to gasp out loud when you see what they can pull off with such graceful precision!

Watch this video to get an idea of the Jeweled Dragon Acrobat performers agility!

Have you seen the Jeweled Dragon Acrobat show at Epcot? What did you think?

Disney Princess Tutu Outfits

by Kristi on March 21, 2015

Disney Frozen Tutu OutfitIf your child isn’t into wearing Princess Dresses at the park, you might want to consider these precious Disney Princess Tutu Outfits over at Zulily! The phrases on the t-shirts are so clever!  I just love the Frozen inspired tutus, but a close second is this one based on Tangled:

Rapunzel Tutu OutfitSizes of Disney Princess Tutu sets run from 4/5-10/12 so even your older princesses can get in on this deal! Just don’t wait because I’m already starting to see some of the smaller sizes getting sold out.

While I don’t get monetary compensation for promoting this deal, I do get referral credit.


Epcot Flower & Garden Festival 2015If you have never experienced Epcot during the Flower & Garden Festival, don’t miss it this year! The 2015 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival runs from March 4 to May 17. It is one of the best times to visit the park because there is so much to do and see (and there is no extra admission to attend).

Epcot Flower and Garden DisplayPart of what makes the Flower and Garden Festival so much fun is that you get to see over 100 amazing topiaries throughout the park.

Elsa and Anna Topiary at EpcotOver a dozen of the topiaries feature your favorite Disney characters. This year, they have even added  Frozen themed topiaries like the one above that features Anna and Elsa.

Chip and Dale TopiariesEach year, Disney Imagineers come up with new topiaries so even if you have been in the past, you will find there is something new to see!

2015 Flower and Garden PassportMy favorite part of the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival is the Outdoor Kitchens. Similar to Food Trucks, there are outdoor kitchens through out the park. Each has a different theme or style of food.  You can find a list of all the outdoor kitchens and topiaries in the Flower and Garden Passport.

Food at Outdoor KitchensThis year, my favorite outdoor kitchen is Jardin de Fiestas found in the Mexican pavillion. We tried both the Veggie Quesadilla and the Taco Pastor. They were both flavorful and paired nicely with the Tecate beer. A close second was Lotus House in the China Pavillion. The Kung Pao Chicken Bun was very tasty!

Are you going to the 2015 Epcot Flower and Garden Festival this year?
