Just Another Magic Monday

Before my husband and I even knew his job would take us to Florida (which you can read about Here), I was talking about visiting Disney World. Last year we even took part in Disney's 'Give a Day, Get a Day' but never used our free park tickets, because we just couldn't manage to work a Florida vacation into our schedules. Even though our free Disney tickets expired, I was still set on visiting Disney in the near future. Imagine my excitement when I found out that through a friend of a friend we could visit Disney World for free!

If you read my last post about our time spent at Disney, you'll see that anything free at Disney World is something worth celebrating. Parking at the theme parks alone costs about $14/day, but Downtown Disney parking is free. Even though parking is only free at Downtown Disney, a hot dog with fries will set you back almost $9 alone. Your bank account will thank you whenever you find ways to save money at Disney World. Our bank account downright jumped for joy when we were so graciously given free entrance by a park employee. Too bad we didn't live closer to Orlando, or I know where I would be looking for a job!

Unfortunately, we left the dSLR on this visit to Disney World. I knew we would be focused on getting the most out of our time at the parks, and I was worried it might take some abuse in the midst of our craziness. I really hope we visit again (when the weather is much cooler) so that I can get some better photos from around the parks.

I have more photos and possibly a video to share with you from this trip to Disney World, so check back in the next couple of days for those. When I read a blog post over at Keeping up with Kelly & Company, she mentioned making videos on iMovie. We have a Mac too, and our computer came with iMovie but we never use it. I can see where I'll be spending some time over the next few days.

I just saw a cockroach scurry away into the little space between our carpet and baseboard. I have to run! Talk to you later. (:

I hope you're having a magic Monday!


  1. What a nice treat! I'm glad you got to go and for free! Free is always nice.

  2. FUNNNN!!!! Glad you two had a wonderful time. So sad we couldn't meet up. I had such a boring-spend no money- weekend.

    And ew. I hate it makes me gag reading that. EWWWW.

  3. Oh my gosh I'm so jealous!!! (of Disney World, not the cockroach) Can't wait to see the photos/videos coming up :)

  4. I've never been to Disney world! Is it wayyy better than Disneyland?

  5. Disney is by far one of my favorite places! Love it!

    And I also love your new layout :)

  6. Hello, I just found your blog though a comment you'd left on another :)

    I'm a huge Disney fan! I was lucky enough to go there quite a few times with my family while I was growing up. I even worked there on a summer internship. It was a lot of fun.

    Anyway, I'm following your blog now. Please take a look at mine when you get chance.
