Hey Everyone, it’s Kimberly with Packed with Fun, the official blog for Get Away Today. The words summer vacation and Disneyland go together like peanut butter and jelly. With all of the fun going on, it’s easy to see why Disneyland is easily one of the most popular summer vacation destinations for families. If you’ve been thinking about going to Disneyland, but have been scared about booking because of rumored crowds, don’t worry. There are so many ways to skip the lines, beat the crowds, and still have a fantastic vacation that everyone in the family will love. I recently returned from one of many Disneyland trips, and even though we tried to time it to be during a slower travel time, it was packed. To help you out, I’ve put together a list of tips and tricks on what to do at Disneyland when it’s packed so you can still have a magical vacation at the Happiest Place on Earth, even when it may feel like the busiest place on Earth!

What to do at Disneyland when it's Packed

What to do at Disneyland when it’s Packed

First, know that Disneyland expands their hours during their busiest times of the year, and that includes summer. You’ll always experience the fewest crowds early in the morning closest to park opening, or later at night, closest to park closing. Depending on your family’s personalities and ages, try to keep that in mind.

Second, take advantage of the early mornings. All 3-day and longer tickets come with a Magic Morning early entry into Disneyland, so even if you’re not a morning person, you’ll want to use it. Along this note, even without early entry, both Disneyland and Disney California Adventure Park let you into certain areas of the park (Main Street, U.S.A. and Buena Vista Street) half an hour before the park opens. If you can be in those areas before the parks open, you’re much more likely to get a great jump start on your day. Remember, that during busy travel times the parks may open at 8am, which means that the extra hour will begin at 7am. If you can get there right at 7am, or even a little bit before, you’ll have a HUGE advantage. When we stayed at Disney’s Paradise Pier, we got into California Adventure early (only available to Disney hotel guests) and were able to do everything in Cars Land before the park even opened with a 7am start time!

Use the FASTPASS System and use it wisely. You can normally have one FASTPASS out at a time, but during busier times, your return time for an attraction could be hours later, or even for that night! You don’t have to waist your whole day waiting for the next FASTPASS, you can get the next one two hours after the current ticket is issued. So, let’s say you run to Radiator Springs Racers and get your FASTPASS at 10am, but your return time isn’t until late afternoon, your next FASTPASS will be available at noon, two hours after you collected the ticket, regardless of return time. The hottest FASTPASS tickets for the summer are Radiator Springs Racers and Soarin’ Around the World (opening June 17) at Disney California Adventure, and Hyperspace Mountain (part of the limited time Star Wars Season of the Force), Indiana Jones, and Splash Mountain at Disneyland. You’ll want to get those first thing, because they do run out!

Splash Mountain Fastpass Disneyland California

Use Rider Swap and/or Single Rider Lines if applicable. All attractions with a height requirement have an option where your group can wait for the attraction while someone stays behind with any smaller kids who aren’t able to ride. Once the first group has ridden, whoever stayed behind can go to the front of the line with up to two other riders. That way, no one has to wait twice for one attraction. You can combine this with the FASTPASS to really maximize your time. This was a lifesaver on our last trip. If you have older kids or adults traveling, you can try out the single rider. You won’t be sitting right next to your party, but a lot of times, you’ll end up on the same car, like on Radiator Springs Racers or California Screamin’. In fact, some attractions like Monsters Inc. Mike & Sulley to the Rescue will even have what they call a “buddy pass” during peak travel times. The buddy pass is like a single rider, but applies to attractions where your party will only take up one row instead of one seat, and you can go through a much shorter line. Considering you can fit up to four riders with one lap child on Monsters Inc., this is a great way to go for us. We waited for about two minutes instead of half an hour by splitting up our group of seven into a group of three and a group of four. We weren’t in the same car, but got off immediately after. It was awesome!

Watch the shows. Shows are great because, well, they’re Disney. But, they fit a lot of people, there are normally not lines, and you’ll almost never get turned away. Some great shows to catch are Mickey and the Magical Map, Turtle Talk with Crush, Frozen Live at the Hyperion (opening May 27), Disney Playhouse Live, Path of the Jedi (part of the Star Wars Season of the Force), and Jedi Training Academy: Trials of the Temple. You can also watch an extended movie preview at the “it’s tough to be a bug” theater. This month the featured film is Tim Burton’s “Through the Looking Glass.”

Frozen Live at the Hyperion in Disney California Adventure Park

Frozen Live at the Hyperion

Ride attractions that have quick moving lines and are longer attractions. Pirates of the Caribbean is a great example. Sure, there may be a line, but it moves quickly because those boats can hold almost 20 people at a time! Plus, once you get on the ride, you’re on it for almost 15 minutes, which makes it a good investment of precious vacation time. The Little Mermaid Ariel’s Undersea Adventure and “it’s a small world” are other good examples of fast loading attractions.

Stay at one of the Disneyland Hotels, or as close as possible. This way you’ll maximize your time by not waiting for shuttles or parking. It’s also nice to be close by if you want to take a little nap or swim break during the heat of the day. Plus, if you stay at one of the Disney properties, you’ll get early morning entry into Disneyland or California Adventure each day of your stay. It’s always valuable, but especially valuable during busier travel times.

The star of the Diamond Celebration at the Disneyland Resort is without a doubt the Paint the Night Parade. When it’s packed, people start staking out their spots on Main Street U.S.A. hours before the parade begins. When we were there people were starting to fill the curbs 3-4 hours before parade time! You can avoid that by purchasing a Paint the Night Dining Package with reserved viewing included. For premium viewing, you can make a reservation for the Blue Bayou which includes a three course prix fixe meal for $62/adult and $25/child ages 3-9. Or, on-the-go dining options are available for $23/adult and $14/child are available from Aladdin’s Oasis and include reserved viewing near “it’s a small world.” This way you can arrive around 30 minutes prior to show time and know you’ll have a spot. Another option is to watch the second showing which only happens during peak travel times. Most of the crowds will watch the first parade and leave after the fireworks.

Paint The Night Parade Disneyland California

Hang out in Mickey’s Toontown in Disneyland and/or the Redwood Creek Challenge in Disney California Adventure Park. If you have kids who are a little restless from waiting in lines or being pushed in strollers, these areas are a great way to let your kids get out their wiggles. There are contained play areas where kids can explore, run and just be kids. Plus, there are plenty of benches where moms and dads can take a breather.

Make a reservation for Character Dining. Waiting in line to meet characters when it’s busy can be brutal. If you do a Character breakfast, lunch or dinner, you don’t waste any time. The characters all come to you while you eat and interact with everyone at your table. Our character breakfast was the highlight of our trip for my almost three-year-old. We got to meet Mickey, Minnie, Daisy, Stitch and Pluto, and some of the characters even came by twice. Reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance, so if you’re going during a busy time, you’ll want to make your reservations ASAP.

Bring snacks and try to time your meals during “off” dining times. Consider eating a late or early lunch or dinner to avoid crowds.When you’re hungry the last thing you want to do is stand in line to get food. I recommend always having something to eat nearby to tide you over during the lunch and dinner rushes. Keeping snacks handy can also keep kids content while in line. I was super grateful for Froot Loops while we were waiting for Peter Pan’s Flight.

And finally, ENJOY! You’re in the Happiest Place on Earth!

Father's Day Handprint Tree 2016 It seems like every year I get an email earlier and earlier to see if we are posting a new Father’s Day Handprint Tree. Well, no need to email or worry because here it is, Father’s Day Handprint Tree 2016.

Fathers-Day-tree-2016

All you’ll need is:

Fathers-Day-Handprint-gift

Begin by painting your child’s hand with the green paint of your choice. It’s tricky with little ones, so make sure you have wipes on hand.

fathers-day-handprint-tree-gift

Carefully place their hand on the tree and press gently on each finger so that the print is nice and shows up.

Fathers-day-handprint-tree-gift1

So cute huh! Since I have 3 girls, they each get a branch. If you have more kids, you can add more handprints and make a bigger tree. If you have less kids, have them do more hands.

handprint-tree-fathers-day

I’m kinda in love with these and so are my girls. They love to give them as gifts. And I think the grandpa’s love them too.

Learn How To Knit With Michaels

The Michaels Makers Challenge for the month of May was to take one of the many classes that Michaels offers. I was really excited because there are so many options and different classes I wanted to take. Cake decorating, oil painting, drawing, flower arraignment, knitting and crochet, all of these are things that I’d like to learn more about.

I went into my local Michaels and spoke with Bonnie, who runs the eduction part of our store. I loved talking to her and finding out more information. Did you know that Michaels offers free classes in their stores? You can try out a new craft skill for just the cost of supplies. 

When I spoke with Bonnie, she told me about the upcoming classes and showed me the projects that would be worked on. I decided to go with the knitting class because it was something I have wanted to learn how to do and this was the perfect chance.

Learn How to Knit

The class I went to was for a knit fringe clutch. It was super cute, but Bonnie let me know ahead of time that I would most likely just be learning the motions and that I wouldn’t finish in the class. I did learn everything I would need to finish at home, which I’m still working on. 😉

Knitting-at-Michaels

Our class size was small; 4 students to 1 instructor, which was great for individual attention. I felt as though I could ask questions and get help when needed. I feel that is really important so you don’t get discouraged right from the start.

Knitting-class

I roped my sister into taking the class with me. This is her, on the right, and Bonnie the instructor on the left. Bonnie taught us how to read the pattern and sat down with each of us to show us how to get started.

Learning-how-to-knit

Here’s my first row. Hooray!

knitting-1

and my second row.  I got a bit further in the class but I’m still working on it. Can’t wait to show you it all finished.

Another great way to explore your creativity is by trying out a craft kit. Michaels has everything from sewing kits to art kits and everything in between.

I’m dying to know what class would you take at Michaels this month?

Check out the classes the other Michaels Makers took.



Mother's Day Handprint Flower 2016

I’m a sucker for anything handprint from my girls. I love seeing the growth from year to year through their hands. You probably know this because I like to post project and gift ideas using handprints. Of course I had to make another Mother’s Day Handprint Flower Printable for 2016.

These always make a fun gift for grandmas too because it’s one of a kinda artwork from their favorite children.

They are quick but can be messy so I suggest having some wet wipes nearby. Also, clothes that are okay to have paint on them, and a surface that could get paint on it. 😉

Mothers-day-flowers-supplies

Other then the suggestions above, you’re going to need the free printable, which you can download below, some paint, a paper plate to put the paint on, and a paint brush.

mothers-day-flower-paint

Paint your child’s hand so that you can control the amount. Then they can place the hand on a stem.

mothers-day-flower-handprint

You can also let them use their creativity to make flowers with their fingers or thumbs.

mother's-day-flower-thumbprints

This can get on the messy side so beware and have your wipes handy.

mothers-day-flowers-with-paint

I loved watching how she made each flower.

mothers-day-hanprints

Mothers-day-handprint-gift

A fun little action shot of her showing me her painted thumb.

Mothers-day-flower

And there you have it. You can have each child complete one page each, or have each child do only one flower. This project is so fun and each one is unique.

How to edit your iPhone photos

Hello again! Michelle here and today I’m talking about Photography and making the most of your iPhone photos. I know that you probably have thousands of photos that mean the world to you on your phone right now… I currently have 11,244 photos and 525 videos!!! omgoodness and I have to admit that those are all from this past year!

I use two cameras every single day. My Canon 5D Mark iii and my iPhone 6 (I’m holding out for whatever amazing phone comes out this fall). There are so many apps and filters and resources for photography on the iPhones of today, but I wanted to share with you my process for my iPhone images. There is a fine line between being obsessed and taking 40 shots for that one awesome image… or just taking a couple good images and still being present and involved in the activity that is happening around you. My goal is to never become so involved in getting an image that I’m not present with my family. There is of course a time for both instances of course. There are times that I become a little crazy and my family lets me know. So….. what do I do from taking a photo to posting it on my Instagram account?

First and most importantly, come follow me on Instagram

Camera

I use the built in camera of the iPhone to take my photos. I use the “photo” setting. I’m a wide angle kind of girl and I love to get as much into the frame as I can. I feel like the square setting limits a lot of what I can pull into the frame. There are camera functions within many of the photography apps, like VSCO, Instagram and countless others that you can use as well.

Taking Your Images

I look for light when I’m going to take my photo. The most beautiful photos include natural light, whether they are outside or inside my home. Turn your subject so that the light is most flattering on them. Avoid very harsh light and raccoon shadows in the eyes.

Editing Images

I try to be spontaneous with my picture taking on my phone and not focus too much on editing them. I also keep my edits simple and clean. I have three favorite apps that I use for editing.

My first go to app is Photoshop Fix. I use this for the most irritating issue… that angry 11 between my eyebrows or a pimple, scratch, or jelly goo on one of the kids’ faces. Use the healing brush, click and poof it’s gone! If you are a Lightroom user, there is also a Lightroom app.

Next I use an app to edit the look of my image; color, contrast, brightness and sharpness, etc. My favorite app to use is VSCO. I use some of the VSCO presets in Lightroom when editing my photos from big girl camera, so there is some consistency when using the app. VSCO gives you a wide variety of tools to use for your images, including the vertical and horizontal tilt of your photos… for those people who for some reason can’t always take a photo straight. That would be me! Here are two examples and my settings in VSCO.

This morning we ventured to the awesome donut shop in town and this little guy was overwhelmed with the cookie monster in front of him.

How to edit your iPhone photos

All of my color images were edited with the A7 preset and I used the X2 preset for my black and white edit. Once I choose my preset or the filter that will be on the image, I then make the fine adjustments that are found under the tools. For the above two images I made the follow adjustments. Clarity +1, Shadow Save +1, Sharpen +1, Fade +1, Highlight Save +3, Tint +1, and Skin Tone +1.  Most of my adjustments were very minor. The only difference on the black and white version was a little added in grain of +2

How to edit your iPhone photos

This image is one that I used on Instagram to show what my car office looks like when I’m waiting for the kids at rehearsals and practices. This image was also the A7 preset with the following adjustments: Contrast +1, Highlights Save +3, Saturation +1, Sharpen +2, Clarify +2.

How to edit your iPhone photos

I’m a huge sucker for sun flare. Some avoid it like the plague, but I love love love a beautiful huge sun flare. This image was also done with the A7 preset. I went a little more drastic with my adjustments to bring out the sun flare more dramatically. Shadows Tint +7, Temperature +1, Highlights Save +6, Clarity +6 and Saturation +1.

I will also use Pic Tap Go for a quicker edit and also Instagram. In Instagram, I typically don’t use the filters at all but instead use the tools similar to VSCO to edit the images. In the end, the goal is to make your image look as close to real life colors as possible while adding a little extra oomph and interest. Avoid filters that make you look like an oompa loompa or an alien. Scroll through the multiple filters and find your favorites. Using consistent filters for editing will give your photography a consistent and clean look.

Backup

Since I have 11,244 images, backups are essential. Make sure that your iCloud is up to date and is backing up your images continuously. I’m terrified of a crash. I also use my external hard drives to periodically backup my images as well as an online backup system. I pay a small $3 fee each month with iCloud for an increased amount of storage.

I hope that you have fun doing quick and consistent edits of your iPhone images… and remember to be present and involved in the activities and get in those photos! Come visit me at Michelle Lea Creative.

Science Teacher Gift Idea - Periodic Element Thank You

Teacher Appreciation week is coming up and I’ve been trying to think of a thoughtful gift to give when I saw these Method Pink Grapefuit Cleaners caught. These are my all time favorite cleaner (they’re even on my Amazon subscribe and save). Nothing freshens up a room like a citrus scent! And well, kids are messy and smelly so I figured teachers will appreciate it as much as mom’s do. When giving teacher gifts I aim for a consumable, something they can enjoy and use up so it doesn’t create clutter. And I try to not give treats or food, unless I know what their favorites are.
