Mickey and the gang have ventured all around the land to bring some Disney favorites to the Royal Friendship Faire.
Goofy invited Tiana, Prince Naveen, and friends to bring jazz to the party! I just love all the costumes for this show. So bright and colorful!
Just look at my girl Minnie!
Donald Duck also made some new friends. They just happen to be a little rough around the edges. But no worries, Daisy, Rapunzel, and Flynn sing those ruffians into line!
Rapunzel is a huge deal in our house. We loved seeing her and the Tangled crew get their own segment in the show!
Olaf, Elsa, and Anna stop by to bring some cool touches to the show.
Then everyone comes out on stage for the big finale! Disney has added even more magical touches tot he original Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire by debuting a new Fall finale. I can’t wait to see what they do for the holiday season.
Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire is presented multiple times a day. Be sure to check the My Disney Experience app or pick up the Times Guide at the park for the schedule. I recommend getting ready for the show about 30 mins early to get a great spot.
More Disney vacation blogs and vlogs coming soon!
The kids have never been to Kings Dominion and the hubs and I haven’t been in years. Like before kids years. It was fun to visit the park and see what has changed and which of our must ride rides are still around.
I know a lot of people think theme parks + Halloween means scary! But Kings Dominion, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Charlie Brown’s The Great Pumpkin, has created an event that is not spooky only fun!
The Great Pumpkin Fest is on Saturdays and Sundays from September 24th through October 30th from 12pm to 5 pm. There are Halloween-themed live shows, Sally’s Pumpkin Painting Patch, Franklin’s Scarecrow Hollow, Pig Pen’s People Washer, a petting zoo, and so much more! Plus all your favorite Kings Dominion rides will be open. And for the kids, Planet Snoopy is the place to be!
After checking in and receiving your treat bag, the kids can explore all the activities available during the Great Pumpkin Fest. I like that both kids were measured and given color coded bracelets with a height on them. It made it easy for us and the ride operators to know if they were tall enough for certain rides.
Time to ride! Planet Snoopy is the place to be for the Great Pumpkin Fest and all the little kid rides.
They were determined to get through the maze faster than anyone else!
Throughout the festival, the kids can visit treat locations, see live shows, and even watch Charlie Brown’s The Great Pumpkin. Mine loved seeing the Peanuts characters and getting a chance to give them a hug!
Each child can pick a pumpkin to decorate and take home at Sally’s Pumpkin Painting Patch. I recommend having a bag to carry your pumpkins in.
The day ends with a special party and parade with some of the Peanuts Gang!
After marching around with the Peanuts characters, everyone gets a chance for one last hug and to say goodbye to our friends.
Hey Linus, where is your blanket?
What could be better than fun rides, great activities, pumpkins, and Snoopy? The Great Pumpkin Fest is included with your admission to Kings Dominion! Grab the whole family and get your tickets today!

This post is sponsored by Cedar Fair Entertainment Company in conjunction with Blog Meets Brand, and I have been compensated for my participation. All opinions are my own.
WOW Summit is not like other conferences I attended. It is bloggers only on Friday and opens up to moms and parents to attend Saturday. Friday, being devoted to bloggers, featured sessions about growing your business. I learned a lot from Dan and Rachel of Blogging Concentrated. Their sessions were great for those of us who have been doing this awhile and want to refresh or revamp our business. We also had an opportunity to meet with the brands during a Speed Dating session. It was pretty hectic but gave everyone the opportunity to meet reps for each brand.
Thank goodness for this station and the organic half and half!
Saturday, the sessions focused on a variety of topics. I like that some of the sessions repeated so I didn’t feel like I had to miss out on a great presentation. A few times throughout the day, speakers in the ballroom addressed us all, speaking about motherhood and other topics concerning parents. Scattered throughout the day were fun giveaways, including some great gift baskets from the brands! No I didn’t win, but I still had fun.
We also visited with the brands during the Expo time. There were brands there I had never heard of and a few I use and love. Since WOW Summit is from Moms Meet, you know the brands represented are Moms Meet approved.
My favorite brand to meet with was National Geographic since my kids love their books!
WOW Summit is a great event for Moms Meets moms and bloggers. Also if you are new to the blogging world and looking for a small conference to attend, I would recommend this one. It is just the right size not to feel overwhelmed!
Connect with Moms Meet to find out where WOW Summit will happen next year and to apply to be a Moms Meet blogger! Maybe I will see you next year!

This past weekend we got into the Fall spirit. I finally decorated the house and we all paid a visit to the Pumpkin Patch. But we did not have anything to carve this pumpkin with. Good thing for us, Mini Babybel had us covered. So it was a Mini Babybel cheesy Halloween fun weekend!
Yeah I don’t do the carving or the scooping of the guts thing. Yuck!
Mini Babybel is just what the Mad Scientist ordered! Not only are they available in cute Halloween-themed packaging but they are a great snack for the whole family.
Mini Babybel are 100% natural cheese treats with at least 4 grams of protein and 15% of your daily calcium needs. No tricks here, they come in 7 varieties, sure to please every Mummy in your family. I throw these guys in the kids’ lunches and snack on them myself throughout the day. The Halloween packaging will make them a great addition to our classroom parties this year. I always like to be the mom the bring the healthy snack anyways. So perfect!
They are practicing their spookiness! What do you think?
Do you carve pumpkins for Halloween?
