Ice Cream Bucket at Blizzard BeachNothing beats the heat from a sunny day like ice cream. The best ice cream (besides Les Artisan de Glaces ~ which is Sorbet anyway) is the Sand Pail ice cream bucket. It can be found at IC Expeditions at Disney’s Blizzard Beach and Happy Landings and Snack Shack at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon! For around $10, you get a souvenir sand bucket filled with all your favorite ice cream delights: chocolate and vanilla soft-serve ice cream, waffles cone pieces, oreo cookie pieces, sprinkles, hot fudge, caramel sauce, strawberry sauce, whipped cream and a cherry. If you dare, you can try to eat the Sand Pail Ice Cream Bucket on your own, but I would recommend sharing with a friend (or two).

Have you had the Sand Pail Ice Cream Bucket? How many people did you share it with?

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?
