Started our day today hitting Dunkin Donuts, before heading off to the Disney Outlet in St. Augustine for Disney souvenirs and the beach.

While Tim was out setting up his new hunting property, we enjoyed a little treat at Dunkin Donuts before heading to ice skating lessons and then, St. Augustine. St. Augustine has one of three Disney Outlet stores in Florida where you can get Disney souvenirs for up to 70% the price you will pay in the Disney parks or at Downtown Disney!

I was at Magic Kingdom last week and saw the popular Tomb Sweet Tomb pillows near Haunted Mansion for over $20. I saw these same pillows at the outlet today for a lot less at $14.95! Learn more about this amazing way to save money on your Disney World merchandise in our video.

We had quite the Halloween theme going on in today’s vlog. Harry Potter, Halloween pillows Disney souvenirs at the Disney outlet, and pumpkin lattes. Are you ready for Halloween?

Although it’s still only August, Disney’s Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party starts on Monday! Can you believe it? You will find a lot of new Disney souvenirs with a Halloween and Haunted Mansion theme, this year like the Tomb Sweet Tomb pillows seen in our video. Disney has even come out with a limited edition Haunted Mansion Magic Band.

Disney is taking the augmented reality app technology that they used for the Frozen events and Star Wars Weekends and expanding it’s use for the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (MNSSHP) with the Mayhem at the Mansion app. We were fortunate enough to be the featured family for the app! You will see us in the tutorial portion of the Mayhem at the Mansion app, but we are apparently also featured in the video promoting the app!

 

This was our first “featured” acting opportunity and we are SUPER excited now that it’s come out to the public!

Mayhem at the Mansion


The Mayhem at the Mansion app can be downloaded on iOS and/or Android devices. You can learn more at http://DisneyMansionMayhem.com


It gives users the chance to find and capture some happy haunts that have escaped the Haunted Mansion for the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party. By downloading the free app for both iOS and Android devices, guests will then be equipped to use their ‘spectre collector’ by locating mischievous ghosts around the theme park (as indicated on the party’s map), snap and share a photo with themselves and family and friends with the ghosts and collect them, eventually returning them back to the Haunted Mansion.

by TimJones

As you saw in our weekend video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FkTBjlaqTiE), my hunt club property was clear cut. Fortunately, the hunt club offered another area for my private parcel area. Unfortunately, this means I have to move my hunting tree stands, popups, trail cameras, deer feeders, and so on to my new area. Oh yeah, and scout it to […]
