American Girl Bistro

As part of an elaborate birthday plan for my mom, my sister and I had been planning a girls’ trip to Chicago to visit the American Girl Store.  While researching, we discovered that a new store had opened in Orlando, where we happened to already have a trip planned.  So, we need to think of a new birthday present for my mom.  But, the trip to the store in Orlando definitely was an experience (go with a strict budget!  Once you are confronted with a doll school-desk with supplies for $98, it might all of a sudden seem like a necessity!), and our meal at the Bistro, a delight.  The food was reasonable and delicious, and Amelia loved that her Mia doll had her own seat at the table as well as her own cup and saucer.


Teen Beach Movie 2 Party at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon

Two years ago, Disney Channel Original movie, Teen Beach Movie, became one of Amelia’s favorite movies, compounded by the fact that when she visited Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Water Park, there was a beach party inspired by the movie.  Fast forward two years, and we now have Teen Beach Movie 2, and again, an upbeat party at Typhoon Lagoon.  Amelia’s summer dreams have come true!  Cast members with true Disney energy, games, beach music, prizes and lots of fun!
