This Mom is REALLY excited about the roll out of the new MagicBands at the Disney Resort this month!  Yes, there will be glitches and growing pains in the beginning, but these bands have the potential to really benefit all Disney families in the near future!

If you have a Disney vacation booked in 2014, you can already log into "MyDisneyExperience" and customize your family's set of MagicBands - including name and color for each! Order your Magicbands ahead of your trip and have them shipped to your home!

These MagicBands will take the place of your previous "Key to the World" and will hold ALL of your travel information, reservations, fast passes and more! You will even be able to pay with them!

This Mom is TOTALLY Siked about the NEW "Festival of Fantasy" Parade COMING SOON!!!!

Admittedly, This Mom is quite the Disney trip planner, and when I was making out our future daily plans for our upcoming Disney World trip in April... I was slightly concerned I could not find any major afternoon parade listed in the Magic Kingdom.  So upon further research, I have JUST learned there will be a NEW PARADE called "Festival of Fantasy" coming soon (March 2014) to the Magic Kingdom and it will feature brand new floats and more!  I could not be more excited!!!  The Disney Blog says that this new parade will specifically highlight the stories of “Sleeping Beauty,” “Dumbo,” “Pinocchio,” “Peter Pan,” and “Tangled” among others.  Other floats on tap for the parade will celebrate Disney Princesses in a Royal Court Garden float. Rapunzel and Flynn Rider will appear on a longship off on a search for another “Best. Day. Ever.” And Peter Pan and Wendy will soar high above on a pirate galleon ship, joined by Captain Hook, Mr. Smee and Tinker Bell

Below are the Disney Artists' renderings of some of the floats!!
