With Moana opening in cinemas this month, I'm reminded that everyone, big or small, young or old loves a visit to WaltDisney World. But if you don't live close enough to drive there and back in a day, then you will need to make some arrangements for your accommodation. There is actually a huge range of type of accommodation available so it should be possible to find one that suits your need and budget. For some more detailed advice check out my guide below.
Do pay attention to what is included in your package.

Who's ready for a new season of Veggie Tales?
When stocking my pantry or refrigerator with healthy snacks and drinks for my kids, I always look for products that not only taste great but that also offer an all-natural alternative where ingredients are concerned.
BODYARMOR premium sports drinks are exactly what I want in my household and these drinks are an excellent choice for my growing and very active kids. BODYARMOR sports drinks contain coconut water, plenty of vitamins, natural flavors and sweeteners, no artificial colors and potassium-packed electrolytes.
My two young sons are involved in school and community sponsored activities and sports, so having a refreshing drink that quenches their thirst, provides the perfect combination of vitamins and other nutrients and is available in eight great tasting flavors in addition to being low in sodium is a mother's dream! Many of today's top athletes are also choosing BODYARMOR as their sports drink of choice, including Mike Trout, Andrew Luck, James Harden, Buster Posey, Richard Sherman, Dez Bryant, Skylar Diggins and Sydney LeRoux, so if it's good enough for these top athletes, then it's good enough for my growing athletes as well!

Twenty-five years ago, Disney's "Beauty and the Beast" broke ground as the very first animated feature film to receive an Academy Award nomination for best picture. Can you believe it's been 25 years??
The beloved classic won two Oscars, including best song and best original score, as well as a Golden Globe Award for best comedy/musical. Now a whole new generation of viewers will follow the magical journey of Belle, an independent and intelligent, modern-day heroine who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her precarious situation, Belle befriends the castle's enchanted staff ~ a teapot, a candelabra, and a mantel clock, among others ~ and ultimately learns to see beneath the Beast's exterior to discover the heart and soul of a prince.
The Walt Disney Signature Collection edition features four versions of "Beauty and the Beast," including a never before released on home entertainment, sing a long version. A host of all new bonus extras include a rare opportunity to gather around the piano with some of Disney's greatest composers, as they sing and share how they've personally been inspired by the film's award-winning music; a look at how Walt Disney himself sought to adapt this famous fairytale; a nostalgic look back with Paige O'Hara, the voice of Belle; behind the scenes access into the recording booth with cast; and a sneak peek at Disney's upcoming live-action retelling of "Beauty and the Beast," arriving in theaters in 2017!
This is a Disney film that my two daughters and I have enjoyed watching for years...from the movie to toys and costumes, my girls have loved and admired Belle. Although they are older now, they are still just as excited to watch this special Anniversary Edition and not only the girls but my sons too! I love a great movie that can be incorporated into a family "movie night" and this one, like all Disney films, is the perfect addition to our home entertainment collection!

Your child needs a car seat from the time you walk out of the hospital until they are at least 9 years old. And, by law, most states now require children to ride in booster seats until they weigh at least 60 pounds or more. Car seats, if used correctly, can dramatically reduce the risk of fatality or injury. But over half of car seats are misused in a way that could reduce their effectiveness and 1 in 3 children killed in car crashes are completely unrestrained at the time of the crash.
