If you have young kids you are going to want to subscribe to the new Disney Junior digital magazine available in the app store or Apple Newsstand.
My son and I spent hours playing with this interactive magazine and let me tell you, it was a big hit with both of us. The issue we read was called “Everyone’s an Artist,” and there were lots of games relating to color and art work. My son loved all of the coloring and the ability to choose which color virtual crayon he would use with each new page! I love the fact that he could draw and write without any risk to my walls and floors!
Disney Junior is a staple in my house and in the homes of many other families with small children. Because of this, the announcement yesterday from Disney Publishing World Wide that their new digital magazine, Disney Junior, will be hitting Apple Newsstands soon has been met with great excitement!
Andrew Sugerman, executive vice president, Disney Publishing Worldwide had this to say about the innovative new magazine, “The demand for high quality content has never been greater. As the use of tablet devices continues to grow, it is a natural next step for us as the world’s largest children’s publisher, to find different ways of extending Disney’s stories to multiple digital formats. Disney Junior allows families to immerse themselves in the stories and characters they love wherever and whenever they choose.”
The magazine will be available by digital subscription or single issues. Disney Junior features enhanced content from the print magazine and some really fantastic interactive features. These features include coloring, tracing, drag and drop, matching and games and puzzles. There will be 12 issues per year with two special additions dedicated to Disney Junior property such as “Sofia the First” and Jake and the Neverland Pirates” in the summer and fall respectively.
Throughout the Disney parks you will find several Face Painting Stations. Recently I took my son to get his face painted at WDW and wanted to share some Tips & Tricks with you to help make your experience more magical!
1.Each face painting station offers the same selection of about a dozen faces you can choose from. These are your only choices and range from flowers and princess inspired faces, to dogs and pirates.
2. You should expect to pay around $15 for the face. We chose a Pirate face that was $12, but others ran a little more or about the same.
Visiting Walt Disney World as a fist time guest can be really overwhelming, but have no fear, I am here to guide you through the process. When planning your first trip to WDW you may find yourself wondering how you can possibly see and do it all. The answer to that is simple; it is not possible. You need to plan a few things to do, see, and experience so you do not get worn out and really get to enjoy your trip!
The first thing you need to do when you arrive at your resort is to obtain a “First Visit” pin for each member of your party. You can do this at your Disney Resort check in or at guest relations at any of the parks. By wearing this pin not only will you experience a bit of extra magic, but cast members are able to recognize that you may not be familiar with everything and are likely to offer tips, suggestions, advice, and directions. Do not be ashamed to wear the pin! Look around, I promise you there are TONS of other guests wearing pins of some sort!
When you arrive at the parks, arrive early and arrive with a plan! I suggest doing a bit of homework before you get to Orlando. Decide which rides are the most important to your family. These rides should become your must do’s! I suggest having each member of your party pick 2 attractions per park that they MUST experience. You can use a service such as Touring Plans to determine the best order in which to see your top picks. Also be sure to check out some park maps to get a better idea on what to expect and to do…
Between park hopping, eating, meeting the characters, and seeing the shows your body can get awfully tired. I see too many first timers stretching themselves to the limit. It is ok to take a break, in fact, if you are staying at a Disney Resort taking a break is almost as much fun as being in the parks. The themed pool areas and relaxing rooms are all part of the experience! Enjoy it!
The weather is getting warmer which means may people will start adding a trip to Disney’s Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon into their vacations! If you have never been to the Disney Water Parks, this is a must do activity and offers something the entire family can enjoy. You may wonder, though, what you need to pack to ensure a great day!
1. Towels – Take them from your resort room if you are staying on property. You can even request extras from housekeeping if you want. If you have purchased a water parks fun and more ticket I might suggest bringing beach towels from home. Those who are only visiting the water parks once really don’t need to do this.
2. Water shoes or flip flops- The ground gets very hot! All members of your party should have some sort of foot protection.
