Back Before The Disney Store Times Square NYC Opened!

Before the Opening!
Disney Store Times Square NYC
As I was looking through my pictures, I actually could not believe that I did not write a post about the new Disney Store NYC. Since the first time I discovered the store was going to be located at Times Square, I could not stop  peeking through the keyholes and trying to get a glimpse into what would become the Disney Superstore of NYC! 
Back in August. This was taken through the round keyhole!
It’s kind of funny now to take a look back at the Disney Store before it actually opened! Just thought I would share some of my “Behind the Scenes” pictures from before the opening. Enjoy!
October-One more month until the Grand Opening /Through the slats of the door!
Almost open!


The Gazillion Bubble Show NYC

The Gazillion Bubble Show NYC


Ever since I heard about The Gazillion Bubble Show in NYC, I wanted to see it! I thought it would be fun for the entire family. The Gazillion Bubble Show The Next Generation, held at New World Stages on 50th Street, NYC was great!

Our show was hosted by Deni Yang, who was a wonderful bubble artist since the age of four. His parents were the original Gazillion Bubble Show hosts in other cities where the show still takes place.
The show featured many, many bubbles-big and small. Deni Yang told different stories and created bubbles that not even your imagination could begin to think of. Children of all ages and adults alike were in awe of all the spectacular bubble acts!


I personally loved when a little girl was taken on the stage and story was told of a little girl in Hawaii who dreamed of snow. In just a few seconds of dimming the lights and bringing them back up, the stage was transformed into a bubble paradise. There were bubbles everywhere.


As a bonus, Deni Yang preformed a breathtaking lazer act. The music was wonderful and the audience was filled with enthusiam! 


One highlight of going to the Gazillion Bubble Show is that you can get your picture inside an actual bubble! There is a special area set up that you can stand in and people raise a bubble up around you! Sometimes it takes a few tries, but they do get the picture!
If you are in the mood for a fun afternoon with the family, The Gazillion Bubble Show is a great choice! There are also plenty of “take home” bubble fun items to purchase and take home for your own bubble fun!

Disney On Ice – Princess Wishes!

Disney On Ice- Princess Wishes!
Last night my family was lucky enough to go to Disney On Ice Princess Wishes. It was a first for us. We have gone to many Disney On Ice shows with our two older sons, but now that we have Emily, our own little princess, we had to see Princess Wishes!
This Disney on Ice highlighted scenes from many of the Disney Movies and the Princesses were abundant! 

Arriving early to Princess Wishes had its advantages. The doors opened one hour early and that gave us  an opportunity to take our time and view the Princess display. Wow! We were able to see Princess gowns and items from many of the Princesses, including Belle, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel and of course Princess Tiana!
We even got to see Tiana’s yummy pot of gumbo just like in the movie Princess and the Frog!
 One of my daughter’s favorite parts of the preshow was actually getting to meet the real Princess Tiana! She was beautiful and Emily was in awe of her, as were all the little grils!

We had so much fun even before the actual Disney on Ice show  started! Princess Wishes was filled with fun for both girls and boys, so if your Princess has a brother, don’t worry, there were plenty of scenes that kept the “guys” amused! The hostess of the show was Tinkerbell, who came out between scenes to introduce the next act! The Pixie dust was plentiful as Tink skated from one end of the ice to the other! 
If you have a chance to see Dinsey on Ice Princess Wishes, don’t miss it. Your Princess will love it and so will you. Don’t forget to leave some room for the yummy cotton candy and popcorn and of course snow cones in take home Disney cups! Have a magical time at Disney on Ice Princess Wishes!

Great Wolf Lodge PAW PASS!

PAW PASS
 At Great Wolf Lodge
On our recent trip to Great Wolf Lodge Poconos we came upon a wonderful resort option called the Paw Pass! When making your room reservation or upon arrival you can add on the Paw Pass. It is quite a savings and really includes so many activities the kids will want anyway, along with some real perks!

 The Paw Pass comes as a lanyard so you or your child can easily wear it! You will want to have it handy throughout your stay. ALL of the things pictured were included in the Paw Pass, along with some additional fun!


Emily’s favorite part  of the Paw Pass was getting to choose her favorite animal at the Great Wolf Stuffing Station! There were so many choices, but she went with the pink poodle. The outfit was not included, but very reasonable.



Our next stop on the Paw Pass was MagiQuest. For each pass your child can choose one Classic or Brilliant Wand and the pass also includes the MagiQuest game and book! The kids really had fun going from hallway to hallway on their quest! 
For my older sons Gr8_Space was a little break for them to go and enjoy music and video games. It gave them a little time away from their little sister and a chance to just hang around. Admission to Gr8_Space is included with the pass.
Race Zone, also included, was a bunch of fun. Each of the children had a chance to enjoy two race events using a rental car and one custom made driver’s license. My 11 year old, Adam had a great time racing!
We all had fun at the arcade. The kids were thrilled to find out they each would get 20 tokens for Northern Lights Arcade. My two sons played Deal or No Deal and won 400 tickets! 
While the boys were in the arcade, hubby and I took Emily to get her small glitter tattoo! Since she has 2 brothers, she was able to get three tattoos! She traded them for extra tokens!
If you like tattoos and glitter, you will love the tattoos! They last a week, but don’t get them done until you are finished with your water park fun. Emily chose a mermaid, a rose, and a heart. They were adorable!


One last thing, don’t forget your Paw Pass, even when you go to the water park. You won’t want to miss out on the Souvenir Sipper with a drink and one Chipstix with your choice of seasonings at the Snack Bar. They sure are yummy!

If you are planning a trip to the Great Wolf Lodge, you should  definitely take advantage of the Paw Pass! You won’t regret it! Just leave enough time to GET everything that is included!
