Disney Social Media Moms On the Road- 5 Quotable Takeaways

In June, we were given the amazing opportunity to attend Disney Social Media Moms On-the-Road conference in Philadelphia.  Our recap of the day's events can be found here. It was a magical day filled with new friends, fun and lots of inspiration.

Disney Helps Moms (and a couple of Dads) Get Social in Philly

We were invited to attend the 2014 Disney Social Media Moms "On The Road" conference in Philadelphia, PA.  While the event was free to attend and we paid our own transportation and lodging, we did receive some gifts from Disney and the various sponsors of the conference while attending.  We were not obligated to write about the conference.  Our views and opinions are our own.

In the short time we've been blogging, there have been a number of great moments and milestones.  This summer, we added yet another experience to this amazing journey, when we attended the Disney Social Media Moms "On The Road" conference in Philadelphia. 

Even if you don't write a blog, the conference was full of great tips for making the most of social media, balancing work and family, and chasing your dreams.  And of course, it was Disney, so it was lots of fun!

Christmas in July- Christmas Shopping in Walt Disney World

Part of the holiday experience at Walt Disney World is the Christmas shopping.  All the shops transform themselves into a holiday wonderland.  Fortunately, if you aren't able to witness this magical transformation resort-wide, there are four shops in Walt Disney World that are dedicated to Christmas the whole year through.  In these stores, you can step into the magic of Disney at Christmastime, and walk out with a few treasured souvenirs.

One of our favorite family traditions is to pick up a new Christmas ornament for our tree on every visit to Walt Disney World.  These make great souvenirs because when it comes time to decorate our tree, we pause as we take out and hang each ornament to reflect upon the magical family vacations we've had.

Foodie Friday- Schoolbread and Troll Horns

On our recent trip to Walt Disney World, we asked Home is Where the Mouse is fans on Facebook for snack suggestions in Epcot. The overwhelming response was schoolbread. We've been dying to try it so we made sure we made a stop at Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe in Norway.

Walking into the bakery and taking a look at the selections it was so hard to choose just one item. Naturally, we decided to sample two of their delicious offerings (and made a list of things to try on our next trip). 

Of course, we tried the Schoolbread. 

We also decided to try the Troll Horn. 

Both treats were delicious. Schoolbread has a soft, almost doughnut like outside. Inside is a creamy custard. It's topped with toasted coconut and a sweet frosting. Troll horns are made of flaky pastry rolled into the form of a cone. The outside is surrounded by crystallized sugar. The inside is filled with a sweet cream tasting custard. It wasn't as sweet as the custard in the Schoolbread, which I liked a little better. 

In the end, we had a great visit to Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe in Epcot's Norway Pavilion. If you haven't been, we (and our readers) highly suggest that you make it a point to visit on your next trip.
