It's raining!

The bad weather my area is currently experiencing made me think about this. This is a topic that is very important with the FL summer storms coming up.

Okay, you just got off Space Mountain to find that it's pouring rain! It wasn't like this when you got in line 55 minutes ago!  Your teen  rolls their eyes and says "We just finished the last ride that's not pooping rainbows. Let's go Jersey Shore is about to come on". But there are still so many things that YOU want to do! You don't wanna leave your teen at the resort but you don't wanna leave! What do you do?

My advice: Put your foot down, buy some ponchos and keep moving, your teen might complain at first but wait  till you get them on Dumbo in the rain! If you go on some of the outside rides that are usually great to sleep on in the rain, it's  a whole new experience that is totally worth remembering. Try it out!

For the teens: Yawn!

Okay, this post is for you teens! And parents, there will be a paragraph for you too. This is a little bit different from what I was planning on posting but it is an important thing, I will let you know why in a little. This post is directed at teens who finally have decided to give into loving the Disney Magic or always have, but their parents... not so much.

Imagine it, or maybe you don't because you've experienced it, you are sitting at the pool at Bay Lake Towers waiting for your mom to finish talking to her new bff, and you're really getting bored they've been talking for hours! And all you want to do is head over to the Magic Kingdom to finish your hunt for all of the Hidden Mickeys but your mom won't let you leave the resort, but you're allowed to walk around. What do you do, I mean seriously the place has the word  Towers in it, how much could there really be there? More than you think actually. If you didn't look up the resort before you came you don't know that there is an arcade there now that's a little 5th grade, but it's super fun. You can also just walk around, if your in a peaceful type of mood  there are plenty of places to just walk around and people watch. You can also walk over to the Contemporary and do some mouse-tasic shopping!

Okay, now it's the parents turn. You just met this lady that's your age, you have so much in common! Both of your husbands spend their free time hunting and golfing, both of you have an evil mother-in-law that could rival Malifacent and both of you have teenagers that are bugging you! What do you do? You don't want them to leave the resort, I understand, parents can be protective of their children and that's okay. But something my mom told me (Thanks mom, you helped create this!) is that even if you meet your new best friend you came here on a family vacation. So my advice, tell your new bff that you should all do something together! It would be a great chance for your teen to get to know their teen and everyone could get to do something!

"Original Disney"

Now excuse this post, it's a bit of a rant, but the main point is advice. Also this one is for the people who know people that are affected by all the negative people of Disney. 

THEIR EVERYWHERE! The Tweeters or Bloggers that say that they don't like Disney because it's changed so much. There are some things that I have to agree with (I mean seriously what's the reason to take away Timekeeper or Horizons?!?!?) but there are points when it becomes too much. If you see a blog that you know is popular, and they are complaining that Disney has become a "money making lame-house" you are going to have one part of you that rolls your eyes, but there is going to be another part of you that has to agree, and if you let that negative part of you win more than a few times, you're going to become a negative person!! My advice, DON'T READ THAT STUFF!! Once or twice is fine to see some Disney news is great, but try your best to stay away from the negative stuff you stay away from the negative stuff on Facebook, stay away from it on the blogs/

"That's so lame!"

Raise your hand if you've heard that, you most likely haven't but you know that some people are thinking that. For example, the Test Track Allstars, yes they are a cool thing but if your smart enough you know it is just an ad for GM, I mean "like how like totally lame is that?", now that is something I will admit to. But there is a cool factor to it, random people singing. Okay, changing the subject, here's my advice if you ever hear anything like that coming from your teen, tell them to randomly join in if is something like that, I don't mean like tell them to hop in and cause an awkward moment that will end in them getting kicked out, I mean like join in where your standing. If they know the song they might be humming and rolling their eyes, tell them to start singing, you never know, I saw someone once get a trading pin for that! 

Kiddy Rides

 I will be talking about Kiddy/Baby rides. It's a thing teens and some adults love to hate and hate to hate. They have so much Disney magic but sometimes they can be plain annoying, due to so much magic, we know that it makes the kids smile,  we know that it's a great way to cool down, so why are there constant tweets that rides like "The Seas With Nemo and Friends" needed to be closed down? In my opinion that ride brings smiles, and that's good enough for me. After some research I discovered that kiddy rides are something a lot of people actually avoid unless they have little ones. Again I ask, why? It's because they don't feel the childhood magic. So my advice is no matter how much your teen wants to avoid it, get them to feel the magic, remind them of when they were little and came to Disney and all they wanted to do was go see Cinderella or  go on Pirates, even if at first they might be embarrassed they'll smile and feel the magic of when they were little, and isn't that what Disney is all about?

About me!

Okay before I start with my advice I want to tell you a little about myself, My name is Mandi, I live in Florida so close to Disney that we go once every month sometimes! When I was younger I had cancer, and as a treat we would go to Disney World as often as we could afford to, well even though now that the cancer is gone and it has been for a while, I still love to go! And lately I've been becoming more observant and I realized that there are not that many teens (13-16) that enjoy going to Disney as much as I do, and I think that seriously needs to change! So, I created this blog for parents to get tips on getting their teens to enjoy Disney World so when they go to take their little kids, everyone can enjoy their trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth!"

I am now going to be posting things about adults who are negative about Disney, it doesn't make any sense! Thanks!
