I am SO excited to be going with my family to the Holidays at Disneyland this weekend. Disneyland at Christmas is my absolute favorite time to visit. It’s so magical! I can’t wait to stroll down Buena Vista Street to see the beautiful towering tree and holiday window displays. I may  also be a tad excited to visit the Jolly Holiday Bakery. Just saying! ;) My kids are most excited to visit Cars Land and see Radiator Springs all decked out for its first-ever holiday season! To contain our excitement I made a Disney countdown and I thought I’d share this simple project with you.

This was SO simple to make. I found the frame from the Dollar Tree and then cut a  5×7 piece of scrapbook paper to go inside. Then I wrote on top of the glass with a dry erase marker and added a Mickey Mouse sticker in the corner. This was super simple to make and my kids have had so much fun “counting down.”

I also made a Disney road trip box.  This way when the kids are getting grumpy I can pull something out from the magical Disney box. ;) I found Disney coloring books and treats from the Dollar Store as well.

Of course I had to make some bows to match my little girls Minnie outfit. Check out the simple tutorial here.

Eek…can’t wait!!

So I’m curious… what your favorite thing about Disney Land? Favorite ride? Favorite food? Spill it…

    I haven’t been to Disney in a very long time. I went with my husbands family to Epcot when we were in college in 2004 but I haven’t been to Magic Kingdom since I was a little girl. I would LOVE to take my kiddos someday during the Christmas season. That’s on my bucket list.
    Enjoyed reading your blog! We are actually leaving for the beach tomorrow and I’ve been working on a “go bag” for the kids to have on the plane. I plan to blog about it next week. Thanks for sharing!

    I love Disney Land! We are hoping to go next Christmas, fingers crossed. I really like the Toy Story ride and the chocolate covered strawberries were amazing. They were huge and delicious! Hope you all have a great time:)

    Just went yesterday with my five-year-old. Her favorite is Goffy’s Sky School. Just make sure you and your husband get baby passes so you don’t have to wait in line twice. Also the bread bowls are a must!

    We have annual passes so we’ve LOVED being able to go often! My favorite Disneyland ride is Space Mountain, and my favorite California Adventure ride is Monster’s Inc….

    We love eating at Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta in California Adventure, it’s REALLY good food and GREAT prices :)

    Hope you guys have a blast!

    I LOVE DISNEYLAND! Just be prepared for crowds when you are there, unfortunately Christmas is one of the busiest seasons. Pray for rain, it clears out the crowds! Don’t miss the parades, they are awesome and for your little girls don’t miss the princesses! I just love the detail of it all, that’s one thing that Disney is so good at. Enjoy!
