Creating Disney Magic

In addition to all sorts of Disney celebrations, we add more magic to our days in and out of the park in many ways.  With just a little planning, you can make a trip to the most magical place on earth even more memorable and amazing!!  The links below are for my favorite paper products, treats, clothes and accessories.


Find autograph books, bag tags, stroller tags, activity books and more in the Dixie Delights Shop!  Autograph books include Walt Disney World, Disney Cruise Line and Disneyland editions.

I always put together a busy bucket for our long drive.  Some are quite elaborate and others have been much more simple.  I use most of the items over each time, just adding a few things that I pick up and store when I see them!  You can see how I have done them in the past here:  2011, 2012 Christmas, 2013 Halloween

As they’ve gotten older, we don’t do the messages from mickey and pre-purchased souvenirs.  Now, they are very happy collecting Disney pressed pennies on each trip!  See how we do it and find a free printable guide here.

When my littles were even littler, I used these Messages from Mickey cards to leave a little dollar store treat and note for them in the room each morning of our trip.  This saved tons of money in souvenirs and was something they really looked forward to!   You can find the cards in the Dixie Delights Shop and read all of the details on how I used them in these three posts: 2011, 2012 Christmas, 2013 Halloween.

As mentioned on my Walt Disney World page, we pack simple breakfast foods and typically eat in the room.  This saves us money and gives us more time to be in the parks when they open.  I usually just throw a bag of food in the back of the car, but a couple of times I have made them extra fancy.  See more here.
