When I imagine a vacation, I can hear the ocean waves, feel the warmth of the sun, taste the pina colada I’m sipping while all my stress, worries and to do list slip away. And then I’m slammed back in to reality when I remember my last beach vacation WITH kids. Don’t get me wrong, it was wonderful to be in a sunny location. But let’s get real for a moment – a vacation with your kids is basically just “doing life” in a different area of the world. Right? Don’t tell me I’m the only one …
So when planning our upcoming vacation I didn’t bother fooling myself in to thinking it would be relaxing … But, maybe, if it was in a very kid-friendly location, the kids would be so entertained that I could take a mental break from finding fun things to do. The most kid friendly place I could think of is, of course, Disneyland! A flurry of secret preparations, a surprise for the mini-flipsizers, and soon we’ll be on our way to “the happiest place on earth!”
Of course the kids will want to wear Disney themed clothing while there and I certainly don’t want to be paying retail prices for these clothes. Nor do I want to be traipsing from store to store looking for Elsa, Mickey, Ariel and Lighting McQueen.
Maybe you’re like me and are looking for anything and everything Disney. Maybe your child will only wear a shirt if it has his/her favourite characters on them. To help us all out I created a pinterest board with many of the Disney themed clothing pieces that are in our store. You may want to hop on there and see what’s left, since when it comes to Disneyland, it appears this mama has no self-control at all.
What are your kids’ favourite Disney characters? Comment on this post and I may just send you a little surprise.
