Disney Parks MUST DO show at Animal Kingdom - the brand new River of Lights evening show. We previewed it last week and loved it - Check out our Animal Kingdom Rivers of Light Highlight Clip for a taste of the magic.

We saw an advance preview of Disney Natures' new Born in China movie releasing on 4/21 while at the Disney Social Media Moms Conference. Kids and us parents thought it was super interesting as it tracked the lives of various animal families native to China - the pandas, the snow leopard, and the golden monkey. As you can tell, Kenzie was very excited about it! Catch Born in China opening week of 4/21 and Disneynature will make a donation to the World Wildlife Fund.

We just sailed on the new refurbished Disney Wonder for our Disney Cruise. Check out our Refurbished Disney Wonder Stateroom Tour Deluxe Oceanview Verandah. We stayed midship in room 7064. The room is fantastic and more spacious than you'd imagine with lots of room to store clothes in closets, drawers and suitcases under the bed. It has the split bathroom convenience for families and the design and bedding is similar to the newer Disney Dream and Disney Fantasy ships.

Tips for Trading with Jawas at Disney Hollywood Studios. We had successful trades - seems the Jawas love shiny junk and metallic items best during our recent trip. If you visit Disney, you can trade with the Jawas in the Storm Launch Bay at Hollywood Studios - bring random stuff from your junk drawer and your kids will love trading for a tiny souvenir surprise from the Jawas.

Highlights from when we ran the Disney Cruise Castaway Cay 5K - it's an absolute must do Disney Cruise and RunDisney event. You'll be the first people off the ship to enjoy this gorgeous island, the race is FREE, and you'll get a fantastic RunDisney finisher medal too.

We chatted with Dominique Dawes about her efforts to help promote healthy snacking and exercise for kids with GoGo Squeeze. I even got to hold her gold medal from the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta
