Hey Everyone, it’s Adelle from Packed with Fun, the official blog for Get Away Today. Summer is the season for two of my favorite things: Disneyland vacations and barbecue. My combined love for the two inspired me to re-create the recipes for one of my family’s most craved meals at Disneyland – Bengal Barbecue. My kids love the skewers because they are yummy and fun to eat. I love them for the same reasons, but also because they’re one of the more affordable meal options inside the park. At $4 a skewer, it can’t be beat… unless you make them at home!
Hey everyone, it’s Adelle from over at Packed with Fun, the official blog for Get Away Today. Memorial Day marks the beginning of everything related to summer fun in our house. And what is summer without a beach vacation? We are huge beach fans and make it a point to get to the ocean at least once a year. We also frequent local lakes, reservoirs and dams any chance we get when we’re home. We love the combination of sun and sand! With all of our trips to the beach, we’ve come up with some tips, tricks and activities to make our beach vacations pretty great. So, in honor of summer and beaches across the globe, I wanted to share our beach vacation activity roundup – I hope it inspires some great beach vacations for your family this summer:
First things first, I put together our five ways to make the beach better with my safety tips and beach day hacks.
Hey Everyone! It’s Adelle from over at Packed with Fun, the official blog for Get Away Today. My kids are already counting down the days to the end of school, but today I wanted to share a different kind of countdown. The days leading up to a Disneyland Vacation are some of the longest days of the year! Why not make the vacation countdown a little bit more magical and fun with a Mickey Mouse Chalkboard counting down your days until vacation? Your kids can take turns being in charge of updating the vacation countdown and decorating it. Watch the days pass by with chalk doodles and destination departure reminders on your family’s Mickey Mouse Board.
One of the cutest little creatures created for the big screen are the Minions from Despicable Me. They are so silly and likable! My kids love them. We are really excited to visit the new Minion Mayhem attraction and Super Silly Fun Land at Universal Studios Hollywood that opens April 10. I hear you get to become a Minion and can play in a carnival made just for Minions! Fun, right? In the meantime, you can bring some Minion Mayhem into your home by making these tasty Jolly Rancher Minion lollipops. This project is so easy – even little kids can do it! And, it only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish.
We are seriously loving Disney’s Frozen Movie and its amazing soundtrack. One of our favorite songs from the show is “Do you want to build a snowman?” Who doesn’t love building snowmen? We put together a fun frozen inspired party theme to celebrate my cute little girl and to have some snowman Frozen fun!
Do you want to build a snowman party too? Here is what we did:
Are you planning a family trip to the Magic Kingdom this year?
