Win A City Mini Single Stroller or Other Prizes

There are a few things that I love, and almost require, for my Disney vacations. I thought it might be fun, to celebrate reaching 10,000 facebook friends, to giveaway those items so that others can have them too. So I teamed up with our sponsor City Stroller Rentals and our friends over at Temporary Tourist to bring you this awesome giveaway.

When City Stroller Rentals became a sponsor of the blog, I followed my rule- I won't recommend something until I try it. So our next trip to Disneyland, I rented a stroller from them. Let me just say, they ruined me. Before I rented from them, I thought my Graco full size stroller was awesome. I didn't know any better. I loved the big basket and the compartments. It also worked well for my son since he liked to sit up straight. Oh City Stroller Rentals....why did you have to show me differently? We rented a City Elite stroller from them and I was hooked! The Baby Jogger line (which, don't be confused are the City strollers - elites, minis, etc) is just full of AMAZING strollers. They can turn on a dime, feel so light you can push them with a few fingers, and are excellent quality. I was hooked. We now have an Elite that we use on walks for the Goof, and now with twins on the way, we plan on getting a City Mini Double. This stroller is amazing. AND City Stroller Rentals has offered to give one lucky reader a City Mini 4-Wheel Single Stroller. These strollers have all the benefits I mentioned above PLUS they can hold up to 65 lbs.

But we have other prizes too...

That is right, for this giveaway we have 3 lucky winners. First prize is the City Mini Single Stroller. Second prize is a Disney Survival Kit that includes a Jackery Bar charger, a Copco Hydra Bottle, Personal Travel Fan, and a $50 Disney Gift Card (links to products are affiliate links). The third prize is the super adorable Disney Vera Bradley Smartphone Wallet/Wristlet.

Once again, a huge thank you to City Stroller Rentals for the awesome stroller prize. If you are heading to Disneyland, or the surrounding area, they have a full fleet of amazing quality strollers at rates that are usually better than those at Disneyland. They even have an Advanced Mobility Push Chair that can hold children up to 100 lbs. These are great if you have a child who may be older but needs a wheelchair or stroller to make it through a day at the parks.

Disney With Kids of All Ages

Recently, we have been thinking to a big trip we plan to take next year (hopefully) with my husband's side of the family. We will have kids of all ages on this trip, from teens, to tweens, to young kids and even infants...not to mentions adults. So I thought this was a good time to bring back this post. I have received a lot of feedback that it has been super helpful to families planning a trip with kids of all ages and I hope it can help you out too.

Disneyland is so magical, and any kid can enjoy it, whether 2, 10, 30, or 50 years of age. As a parent though, one challenge you may face is how to gear the trip between kids of different age groups. It can be hard to figure out how to find that balance between your toddler who is still limited by height restrictions and your teen or tween who is bored with all the "kiddie rides." We have done several trips with kids of all ages and there are a few things to learn that I want to share with you.

Now, I know what some of you are thinking- "Becca, you only have a toddler. What could you possibly know about taking kids of all ages?"

Since the Goof was born we have only taken 1 trip (out of 5) that we did not have older children with us. So, through the other 4 trips, I have learned a lot about how to make sure everyone has a great time.

Review of Disney On Ice presents Let's Celebrate!

 I am a Feld Family Ambassador. In exchange for my time in reviewing this show, as well as sharing upcoming events and specials on this site for my readers, I have/will receive complimentary tickets. As always all opinions are 100% my own.

Last night I was able to attend the opening show of Disney On Ice presents Let's Celebrate! in Boise. I am excited to be able to share with you my review of the show today, as well as some pictures.

LoveOurDisney.com reviews Disney On Ice presents Let's Celebrate!

To start, this show came at the perfect time. See, we were supposed to be in Disneyland October 10th-14th but due to a death in the family, and many other things that happened, we had to cancel our trip last minute. Since we will probably not be able to make it back to a Disney park until mid-2015, we needed a little Disney fix at home. This was the perfect way to get it too.

Our night started with some Disney magic. The people in front of us gave our son a Mickey Party Hat. I posted about this on the Love Our Disney facebook page and the We Love Our Disney facebook group. Others who had been at the show said they saw several acts of kindness as well. It is great to know that Disney magic can be found in our own hometown.

The show itself was AMAZING! The skaters were very talented, the costumes were great, and the entire show contained the Disney magic and quality that Disney lovers have come to expect.

Easy DIY Minnie Shirts With Attached, Washable 3D Bow

In the two and a half years since I started Love Our Disney, this is the most viewed craft post, and one of the most viewed posts of all time. I thought it was time to bring it back for those that might be planning a Disney vacation and looking for an easy DIY tutorial.

A friend is heading to Disneyland and has two little girls. I thought it would be fun to make her girls some Minnie inspired shirts. I saw a lot of them on Etsy and Pinterest, but none of them had an attached 3D bow. They either had flat bows, done the same as the mouse head, or they were bows that had been made using glue so they had to be safety pinned on and could not be washed, leaving the chance of losing the bow. So I decided I wanted them to have ones that were 3D bows but were attached and machine washable.

I am a BEGINNER on the sewing machine. Up until now, in my adult life I have only made a few burp cloths (rectangle, nothing fancy) and a car seat cover. Both with heavy supervision from my mother. I did these completely on my own, so if I can do it- you can do it. I do suggest using a practice shirt first so you can get used to sewing curves.
