1. A Room with a View

Picture 1 of 11

We were lucky enough to stay at the Disneyland Hotel. This was great because we were close to our room for nap time. Eldon was more than excited to spend time looking out at the parking lot from Fantasy Tower. In fact, he spent a lot of time looking at the hustle and bustle down there, seeing buses, taxis, and limos come and go...

P.S. Did you notice that tiny smirk on Maleficent’s face? I told her that she was going to be the star of that picture and she told me that I was! I still can’t believe she had it in her to crack that smile!!!

New “In The Clouds” Maleficent Clip Just Released (Video)


Every time another image or clip is released for MALEFICENT, I get more and more excited. I can hardly wait to see this movie!

In fact, hold onto your hats, my husband is looking so forward to seeing this movie that he insisted we make a trip to the AMC Dine-In Theaters at Downtown Disney. We did Fork & Screen for the first time when we saw Frozen and it was so awesome that my hubby said we didn’t need to see movies anywhere else again! Works for me!

Anyway, take a peek at this newly released “In The Clouds” clip and get more excited about this amazing film. We only have a week to go!

Remember, MALEFICENT is rated PG and opens in theatres everywhere on May 30th!

Best Friends Pet Care At Walt Disney World – My Thoughts


Best Friends Pet Care At Walt Disney World
My Thoughts

Most of you know that our family got a new Akita puppy back at the beginning of last month. He was 8-weeks old when we got him and weighed about 18 pounds! Once he had his 3rd round of shots, our Veterinarian gave us the okay to let him stay in a kennel, so it was off to Walt Disney World for us!

When I called Best Friends Pet Care to make a “Resort Reservation” for Kenji, the staff were so caring and understanding of the concerns I had about “Doggie Daycare.” See, my husband has wanted an Akita puppy for the entire 22 years that I’ve known him and now that we’ve got one, I’m acting like we have a brand new baby in the house. I mean, look at this precious face! What can I say? He’s such a sweet baby ball of fur!


We walked into Best Friends Pet Care at the Walt Disney World Resort and everyone was so friendly. The staff was excited to see Kenji and they were full of smiles. I loved that the person I spoke with on the phone was actually there to greet our family. There were other dogs waiting with their humans to be checked in too. It felt like we were checking in at a Resort!

I was really impressed because we were able to have Kenji stay on his feeding schedule that he’s used to and we had the option of bringing his food or he was welcome to use the food they provided. We chose to bring our own simply because we’d gotten him used to it and didn’t want to make any changes in case he had a reaction. We were also able to bring 2 of his toys from home plus a chew toy. I really loved being able to do that because I think it’s important for our fur babies to have some of the comforts of home when they’re away from home.

There was lots of fun merchandise to look at while we waited. They had cute costumes and all sorts of leashes and collars that were Disney themed. There was a Nightmare Before Christmas one that we absolutely LOVED but we decided to wait to buy it since we really don’t know how big Kenji will get.

Someone was VERY anxious to go check out the dog park that was right out back. There were sprinklers!! I had to stop and take a quick pic of Kenji with Pluto but neither of these two were terribly interested in a photo shoot, as you can tell. Not even looking at the camera. That’s OK though. Pluto always enjoys having his picture taken!


Let’s talk about sprinklers and swimming pools for a moment. These two adorable little pools were filled with fresh, clean water each time we stopped by and Kenji took a dive, or a face-plant rather, right into either one of them as soon as we got through the gate. My little girl was a little afraid of him hurting himself so she was holding onto him for dear life. He was so funny because he’d stand in the water and drink it at the same time. It was completely adorable! He tried running around in the sprinklers too but he kept on slipping on the pavement while he was running toward them. He’s so cute and clumsy still!


One of my favorite things about Best Friends was that while we were outside hanging out with Kenji in the dog park, the staff was out playing and walking other dogs around the walking path right there. It was so fun to listen to them interact with the dogs and really have a great time while doing their jobs.

I know I’ve told you about a lot of my favorite things about Kenji’s visit here, but this next one is my VERY favorite! When we went to pick Kenji up, we were given a report card on how his visit went overall!! How fun is this? I’ve got scrapbook pages calling my name over here!!


Another great thing was that we didn’t need to bring Kenji’s bed as they provided beds for the dogs. This was really nice not to have to schlep that down with us. Not to mention, they keep everything nice and clean and they even dry the dogs off and make sure they’re cleaned up when they come in wet from outside. Love that!

One more thing I want to make sure and share with you, and it’s a BIG one for me. The place did not smell when we walked in. Dogs are sweet and everything, but I’ve been inside of a kennel or two and no matter how they’ve looked, they’ve smelled B-A-D, you know what I mean? Best Friends Pet Care at the Walt Disney World Resort did not knock me over as soon as I walked in and that was awesome! They get two thumbs up from our family!
