Need Advice on Disney Trip

The majority of the travelers to Disney have a plan....plan for months, maybe even years...well not the Newell clan...we found out we are going to Disney and only have less than 3 weeks to plan a trip with three little ones and we are driving (crazy huh)...stopping in N.C. to see my dad...anyway...I am looking for tips, tricks and money saving tips!  We are not staying at a Disney resort (the whole reason we are going is we have a time share that was given to us for the week, FREE!)  

Our tentative plan is to do 3 days at the resort, pool, mini golf etc...and two days at a park (or two)....thinking Magic Kingdom and there enough to do for little ones?  Suggestions on shows to see....what to do....etc..anything you can pass along would be a great help!

Disney will actually send you a free DVD of all the things you can do at their parks.

I've never been there, so all I can recommend is the DVD =)

Laura, not enough time for that...we leave (now) in less than 2 weeks...but thank you.

We are closer to disneyland than world, but did take our boys two years ago. I HIGHLY recommend Hollywood studios. My son (3 at the time) loved the shows....Playhouse Disney, Beauty and the Beast, the Little Mermaid. Epcot was interesting for us, but there was not a lot for kids. Animal Kingdom was about a 1/2 day adventure with the safari ride being good for kids and the Nemo show. Magic Kingdom has the most options for the whole family. Have a great time!

Oh, I love planning Disney trips almost as much as going on them!! I did a Disney tip blog after we returned from Disney World in 2009 Here is the link:

Little kids will LOVE Hollywood Studios! Epcot is not that interesting for little ones and really takes at least 2 days to see it all. Magic Kingdom is another must for little ones. And use the Fastpass! It will save you a lot of time. There's a book called the Passporter. Its a great guidebook. Also, Birnbaum's. YOu might be able to get one of those from your library. If not, go to the Disney website and look at each park and the rides and show times, schedules for the days you will be there, etc. Enjoy! I'm currently planning a trip to Disneyland. We are going in September and I'm already working on daily schedules. :) I drive my husband crazy!

There is more than enough to do! We go every year and sometimes twice a year. We do 10 days in Disney and always stay on property. It's a fantastic time for everyone! We were married there, have taken kids from as young as 2 months all the way to age 6 (that's how old our daughter is this year). Oh and I used to work there in college! So if you have any questions, feel free to ask!

With your little kids I would do Animal Kingdom before Epcot more for them to do. Epcot is a lot of walking around and many fun things for the little kids. Have fun on your trip we really enjoyed it there:)

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  

I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.

Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey

The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)

It's cute, to the point and shows her style.

Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
