Shannon Dittemore



I’m such a fan of Disneyland.

Everything glitters or dances. Lights up or sings.

It’s all so… sparkly, you know?

It’s also a great place to learn. No, really. I learned lots and lots on our last trip. Indulge me, if you will.

These tidbits are Mickey approved. 😉

Life’s better when you’re wearing a crown.

Strollers are a necessary evil. But make no mistake, they ARE evil.

If you let the 3yo lead the way to the Ladies Room, you may end up surrounded by urinals.

You should kill at least one dragon every day. On Fridays and Saturdays, shoot for two.

Glitter never EVER comes off.

If you go looking for Nemo, it’s very important (especially to the 3yo) that you find him.

Light sabers, even the plastic ones, are powerful weapons.

If your husband walks behind you with a camera there will be booty shots.

Mouse ears look dashing on most everyone.

Pooh and Poo are very different things.

If your child’s favorite stuffed toy resembles a Disney villain (ahem, purple octopus), there’s no guarantee it will make it out of the park alive. Or out of the park at all.

Be warned: There is no safe place to pick your nose. Cameras abound.

Cotton candy is never a good idea.

If you lose your $50 pirate hat, you will be asked to walk the plank.

And, last, but certainly not least, the best nights end with fireworks.

    These tidbits are so funny Shan! I love Disneyland as well. Happiest place on earth. But I must say the selfish part of me is so very thankful that the Dittemore’s are home!

    I agree… but what happened to the Hat?

    It disappeared from the hotel room. Bummer, right? We gave our info to the front desk, but….
