Well, one month of 2013 is already on the record books. I hope your year is off to a great start! Let’s take a look at January in review at Magical Mouse Schoolhouse.
We plunged into January with a cyber visit to Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park. To start things off, we rang in the new…Fantasyland and checked out some Beauty-ful new character experiences, Beast-ly dining, and loads of big top fun. Aboard Magical Blogorail Yellow, we fantasized of becoming a Cast Member. From there, we blasted off to worlds unknown on Space Mountain and defeated the Evil Emperor Zurg at Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin.
Next, we mosied on over to the Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade to test our pioneer survival skills, and we joined the hoedown at Country Bear Jamboree. Special Guest Jan Sleeper from 3D Travel Company stopped by to share sweet memories of it’s a small world, and on Inauguration Day, we learned the Presidential Oath of Office and took a look at the Hall of Presidents. We also celebrated a dizzying un-birthday at the Mad Tea Party and “fertilized our brains” with laughter at the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor.
Of course, we had some fun too. You might say we learned while we played! Like when I created this cute Mickey-Minnie nail art, the Disney vacation savings jar, or the festive and functional Disney vacation countdown wreath that we’re currently giving away (ends Friday at noon Central time!). We also featured the weekly Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia bloghop, and our Wordless Wednesdays spoke for themselves.
We are also co-hosting a giveaway to win a Singing & Storytelling Belle doll (ends Feb. 7), and we have encouraged donations to FEEDING AMERICA as part of the Disney Bloggers Fight Hunger drive. (By the way, today is the last day to donate, so please, please, please take a moment to give whatever you can – even just $5 goes a long way!)
Earn Your E.A.R.S. resumed this month after our holiday break. Registration is open continuously; however, assignments are only emailed out on the 1st-5th of each month. Which reminds me…have you turned your work in yet? February projects go out tomorrow!
Click back through the posts you might have missed, and learn a bit while you play! We’re headed to Epcot next, so be sure to check back Monday for an all-new post. See ya real soon!
