Sprinkles- Disney Springs

If you are a fan of cupcakes or ice cream, then don’t miss Sprinkles in Disney Springs! I went there the other day to check out their cupcakes. I just love a tasty cupcake! What makes Sprinkles so unique is their Cupcake ATM. I will get to that in a moment.

Sprinkles- Disney Springs

First, let me share how to prepare for your trip to Sprinkles. Go to Sprinkles.com/perks to join their loyalty program! You get a free cupcake on your birthday! Plus, if you are a local and would to go Sprinkles often you can get a free cupcake after you buy 15 menu items.

There is a good selection of cupcakes. The cupcakes are made fresh in house, but the batter is brought in from Tampa. The day I went, Key Lime was the specialty flavor of the day, but they sold out of them the day before. sprinkles-cupcakes-disney-springs2

I enjoyed my cupcake experience at Sprinkles and my first visit didn’t cost me anything! For a limited time they had a deal where if you joined Sprinkles Perks you got a free cupcake just for joining! When you get to Sprinkles, they have 2 lines both outside. One line is for the cupcake ATM, the other lines is for the inside ordering area. I got in the line for the inside ordering area. A hostess then hands you a menu, after looking at the menu it becomes helpful in shading yourself from the awful Florida sun, lol. Since the lobby/inside area is small they only let so many people in at one time. There is no indoor seating other than a couple benches to sit on while your order is being prepared.sprinkles-disney-springs-3

Once I was let in, the sweet smell of frosting and ice cream serenades your senses! You order your cupcakes and/or ice cream and when wait for your order to be made. I ordered a salty caramel cupcake! It was so good!

The prices are decent and the cupcake makes for a nice frugal snack at Disney Springs. Unfortunately, Sprinkles is not part of the Disney Dining plan. Here is the full menu and prices via AllEars.net. Sprinkles is opened 10am until Midnight and the ATM is opened until 2am.

The ATM. How cool is it that a cupcake shop has an ATM? Here is a video from Sprinkles explaining how the ATM works.

Family Movie Night with Alice

Disclaimer: I received complimentary admission to Alice Through the Looking Glass to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own.

I loved the first live action Alice in Wonderland movie that Disney put out. I was excited to see Alice Through the Looking Glass because I adored the characters and the story so much. Alice Through the Looking Glass is a great heartfelt movie that makes a perfect family movie night. I want to share with you lessons from Alice Through the Looking Glass that whole family can benefit from.lessons from Alice Through the Looking Glass

Lessons from Alice Through the Looking Glass

  1. Believe in your friends. The Hatter is feeling dark and sad. The people of Underland are hoping Alice can help the Hatter out of his dark and crazy mood he has been in. Alice goes and sees him and The Hatter feels so excited and you can tell he is starting to feel better because he feels like she will believe him. Unfortunately, Alice doesn’t.
  2. You cannot change the past, but you can learn from it. Alice Through the Looking Glass is a sequel/prequel movie. It takes place after Alice’s adventures as captain on her ship, but Alice goes back in time to make things better for the Hatter. Her intention is to change the past.  Peeking into someone else’s past or your own can glean so much wisdom and understanding. What I absolutely loved about going in the past in this movie was that it answered so many questions about why characters are the way they are. I have to say that  Alice Through the Looking Glass gave me a HUGE heart for the Hatter.AliceThroughTheLookingGlass-clock [Read more…]

Money Saving Tips for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

If your little Prince or Princess wants to get all dolled up, don’t worry you can experience the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique on a budget. The Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a wonderful experience where Fairy Godmothers in Training transform your little boy or girl into a knight of Princess. Unfortunately, prices start at $59.95 for the Princess Packages. The Knight package is just $19.95 though. (prices current on the date this is posted, current prices can be found at the Disney World website. I am going to share with 4 Money Saving Tips for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique.

Money Saving Tips for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

Money Saving Tips for the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique

  • Get the Basic Package. If experiencing  the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique is a must-do and no other alternative would be acceptable then get the basic package. It is $59.95 and comes with hairstyling, shimmering makeup, face gem, nail polish, and a Princess sash and tote. You can frugally add on what the other packages offer. The $99.95 package adds a tutu and a Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique t-shirt. The t-shirt isn’t all that special and you can get a similar tutu elsewhere. The ultimate package is $199.95 and adds a princess necklace and full costume with accessories (minus the shoes). The costumes from the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique can be itchy and very warm to wear since they are not cotton. You can find beautiful cotton dresses like this Anna Inspired Dress from Amazon or Etsy.
  • Go to the Pirate’s League instead. The Mermaid package from the Pirate’s League includes Luminous Mermaid Make-up and make-up palette, mermaid hairstyle with color changing hair clip, distinctive mermaid necklace, nail polish, mermaid sash, plus a special mermaid costume T-shirt and tutu! Prices are much cheaper, and from what I hear the hairstyles are more comfy for kids.
  • Get Princess Pretty at the Disney Salons. You can get a manicure or pedicure at Disney starting at $35. I have personally gotten a manicure at Coronado Springs and loved the service I got. It was very relaxing. You can call 407-WDW-SPAS for more information. You would DIY your hair and outfit but I think the value is more because of the quiet environment and superb service. [Read more…]
