Rango - Not that great for kids

Tonight we went and saw the new movie Rango and I was not impressed.  Although the movie is funny and at times excellent, it is also very scary.  My four year old was quite scared.  There was a lot of foul language and mentions of going to hell.  Lots of shooting, threatening, illegal behavior, the cartoon characters drink all different types of alcohol.....it just goes on and on.   I would not consider this a kid movie.

Animal Kingdom Lodge at Disney World

The Animal Kingdom Lodge at Disney World was amazing and is set up perfect for a family, but I'm sure you already knew that. The past few days I have been on a work retreat at Disney with travelingmom.com. Here are some pictures of my room. I had it all to myself since my husband is still deployed and left the kids at home with Grandma.

The room I was in had one queen bed, bunk beds and a portable crib in the closet.

There was a coffee maker and a mini fridge.
Through the window there is a lovely patio with chairs so you can sit and watch the animals.

There was a double sink area and a separate room with shower and toilet.  In my opinion it is often the bathroom area that can show the age of the hotel and it looked brand new.

I will be posting pictures I took from all around the lodge within the next few days.

Bring your own food into Disney World

Did you know that you are allowed to bring food into all the Disney Parks. We were unsure about this until we ask someone in the park that worked there.  Here's what you need to know about taking food into Disney.

  • Soft sided coolers are allowed in Disney Parks
  • Hard sided coolers are allowed in Disney water parks only
  • No glass allowed
  • There is a Super Wal-Mart and a Super Target near Disney World where you can get whatever you need
  • All rooms at Disney have a small fringe, microwave, and coffee maker.
Here are some of the food items we've packed and taken into the Disney parks with us.

Cold Items:Grapes
Yogurt sticks
Cheese sticks
Juice boxes
Premade sandwiches
Fruit cups

Room Temperature
Fruit and nut mix
Granola bars
Pop tarts
Fruit snacks

Other random items
  • Reusable coffee mug filled with coffee
  • Drinks mixes – You can refill your water bottles all over any of these parks, but sometimes the water doesn’t taste good.  The water at the Magic Kingdom tastes especially bad.  We refill and then mix in a drink flavor packets and the problem is solved. (Any of the restaurants will give you a glass of water for free.)
