Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party

October is one of my favorite times of the year to visit Disney! I just love the cooler fall temperatures, the awesome Halloween decorations and my kids love trick or treating at the most magical place ever! Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party takes place on select nights in September and October at Disney's Magic Kingdom. It is the most fun and festive party on Main Street. You don't want to miss it. If you haven't been then I would recommend booking a trip asap!

Event Details:

Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party takes place select nights in September and October from 7 pm until midnight. Guests need to purchase a separate ticket for the party. Prices start at $68.

Tips On How To Get Back In The Back To School Routine

  • Move bedtime to an earlier time one week before school begins to help with the transition of waking up early
  • Encourage your kids to have a healthy snack after school
  • To ensure homework is done on time I have my kids do their homework after their snack. This way I am not rushing to check home work on the way to the bus in the mornings. 
  • Pack lunches the night before 
  • Create a weekly lunch chart so that your kids can pack their own lunches if they are old enough
  • Always check your children's bookbags/folders the night before school. You don't want to miss an important form that might require your signature. 
  • The #1 tip I could give any parent for getting back in the 'back to school' routine is get plenty of sleep! Yes-parents need to get plenty of sleep too!

American Girl Bistro: Charlotte

My 8 year old daughter absolutely loves all things American Girl. She owns two American Girl dolls and quite the collection of clothing. I joke that her dolls have more expensive clothing than her brother and sister. Ha. We recently visited Charlotte, North Carolina and were pleasantly surprised to learn that a brand new American Girl store opened at the South Park mall. We ventured to the mall and headed straight to the American Girl store. It is such a nice store complete with a Bitty Baby section and the most adorable Bistro. Reservations are highly recommended. We got lucky and we were able to enjoy dessert at the Bistro (without reservations! score!)

The American Girl Bistro is absolutely adorable

The details are on spot 

My daughter ordered a cookies and cream milkshake and said it was the best milkshake she has ever had! I ordered the chocolate chip cookie skillet with ice cream (could easily share this with two people as it is a big portion) and it was delicious! 

The American Girl Bistro is located in several of the American Girl stores including Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Columbus, Dallas, Houston, Miami, Minneapolis, Nashville, Orlando, Scottsdale, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis and Washington DC. 

Overall I would highly recommend a visit to the American Girl Bistro. They offer lunch and dinner along with birthday parties. For more information on their dining options visit their website
