Our Afternoon at #CarsLand in Disney’s California Adventure

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on June 14, 2012

Today was a big day for Disney – it literally “just got happier” with the opening of CarsLand and Buena Vista Street.

And we got a sneak peek!

We first visited Radiator Springs and Rte 66…

But, somebody got very cranky.

Radiator Springs Racers is a ride you won’t want to miss!

Look who’s happy now…

I had the privilege of meeting and interviewing Kathleen, a Disney Imagineer… Stay tuned for a video of my ride with Kathleen.

I even filmed a fun webisode, complete with an appearance from Mater! You won’t want to miss it, so check back soon.

Of course my afternoon would not have been complete without a visit from Mickey…

And, becoming an honorary candy maker was quite the treat!

Ben and Noah were excited to see Donald, while I was hard at work… having fun!

Are you planning to visit CarsLand this summer?

I can’t wait to share all of the fabulous footage I got from this magical place. And I’d love to hear about what you think of CarsLand after you visit!


A Grand Welcome

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on March 22, 2011

I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve been away for a bit. At least I hope you’ve noticed. Well, last Thursday began a fabulously long weekend of learning, growing, and playing in none other than magical Disney World during the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration.

Most of the weekend’s festivities took place at the breathtaking Grand Floridian, where we were welcomed on that first day as esteemed guests.

More to come as I share the highlights from my time away. Stay tuned!

Disney to the Rescue

by Christine - From Dates to Diapers on May 18, 2010

I’ll be the first to admit that my kiddos are watching way too much TV these days. Full House reruns seem to be a favorite among the older ones, but when they finally sit down with their books or lesson sheets, the younger boys get to pick a DVD to pop in. Here are a couple of their favorites::


My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Super Duper Super Sleuths
After a mysterious shooting star falls in Rabbit’s garden, his vegetables suddenly become gigantic. And when our heroes eat the super-vegges, they get incredible superpowers! Dressed valiantly in brand new costumes and armed with their newfound super powers, the Super Sleuths set out to help friends all over the Hundred Acre Wood with their newfound brawn and always clever teamwork.


Handy Manny: Big Race
Gear up for high-speed fun with Handy Manny in this action-packed adventure. Share the thrill of a lifetime when Manny puts the pedal to the metal n the Wood Valley 500 car race. But first, can Manny, the Tools and their friend Elliot turn a broken-down jalopy into the coolest racecar ever?

Since these titles have been such great fun for my kiddos, they are sure to be enjoyed by yours! Head on over to Facebook and become a fan of “like” From Dates to Diapers. Leave me a message on our wall, telling me about your kiddos TV watching habits. Come on, be honest! Next Friday (May 28th), I will choose two random winners from our wall commenters, one to each win one of the above titles.
