Nov 262012

Our kids have been eagerly counting the days (weeks and months, at this point) ever since we told them that we’re planning a trip to Disney World for early December 2012.

I grew up in Los Angeles, and Wolf lived in Southern California for nearly 20 years, so we’ve both been to Disneyland many, many times.

Nick has been there several times, since he was already 10 when we moved away, and Jewel was there once when she was too tiny to remember it.

Now that R.T is old enough to enjoy himself, we’ve decided it’s time to visit the theme park. And living in Mississippi, we decided we’d head for the other coast this time: Orlando, Florida, here we come!

We got a great deal by following some Disney blogs and Facebook pages, booking through a Disney Travel Agent who was offering an incentive, and pouncing on the Free Dining program when it was announced.

Then came the question of Disney World Costumes, since kids are allowed to dress up in the parks.

Jewel has several off-label princess costumes, so she’s pretty well set.

R.T. doesn’t have as many, so I was delighted to be able to put together a new outfit for him through a review opportunity from

Check out this adorable Mickey Mouse!

The costume includes the ears headband and cartoon-y white gloves – the rest is our own improvisation… right down to the white “buttons” cut out of paper and stuck on with double-sided carpet tape! He wasn’t too keen on wearing tights, but in the end it all worked out.

We’re on the countdown now. Disney World in less than two weeks!

M I C … See you real soon!
K E Y … Why? Because we like you!
M O U S E ! !
