Bring Main Street Treats to YOUR HOUSE!

Ok, here's the deal! I love the Mickey Mouse Rice Krispie Treats.

No......I mean. I LOVE....totally super happy.....LOVE them!

So, when I saw this pan at Wal-Mart....I nearly flipped my lid!

I have been saving this little craft for Spring Break...and was so happy to have a "down day" with nothing planned.....and as I is 2:43 pm and we are all 3 still in our pj's.....and I am totally cool with that!

So, let's get started!

Easy! Melt your butter and your marshmallows together. ON LOW. Do not burn them.
While you are waiting on these to melt, go ahead and get everything else ready.

You will need 6 cups of Rice Krispies measured out and ready.
Then, spray the pan. I love this Crisco cooking spray. It sprays so easy...and does not have a "taste" to it! Easy!

When your marshmallow/butter mixture is ready.....and I mean VERY melty......go ahead and add your Rice Krispies.

STIR QUICKLY.....and then putting them into the sprayed pan.

This needs to happen fast (this is why it is important to have it all ready....)

It's hard to believe.....but the ENTIRE recipe will fit into this one pan! Yes, this is pure Mickey Mouse goodness!

Now, don't worry, if it mounds over, while you are putting it into the pan. This is good.

You want it to mound over, so that you can "pack" it in it will take a good, solid shape!

Like this:

Ok, then, let it sit for about 10-15 minutes, so it can become a little more "solid".....let the Rice Krispies become one :)

Flip the pan over (I recommend onto wax paper)
And, tada!!! MAGIC!!!!

How fun in the world are these!!!!

**And, note....this thing is HUGE!!! My little helper LOVED them :) Can you tell!
(Spring Break at it's finest...messy hair, and shirt on inside out)

And if you are wild, you can dip it in chocolate!!!

3 Tablespoons Butter
1 Package (10 oz. or 40 marshmallows)
6 Cups Rice Krispies

Melt butter on low. Add Marshmallows until completely melted.

*While melting, prepare pan with butter or cooking spray.

Quickly add Rice Krispies.

Pour into prepared pan.

Have a Magical Treat!

The little-er people can now ride the Aqua Duck!

This is a super fun announcement!

Disney Cruise Line has made a "minor" adjustment (pun completely intended) to its height requirements for the AquaDuck on the Dream. The minimum height requirement for kids will drop from 48 inches to 42 inches. To ride alone, however, the height requirement increases from 48 inches to 54 inches. Also, kids must be at least 7 years old to ride alone. Children under seven must ride with someone who is at least 14 years old.

A fun note: the reason for the change is mostly because the "too little weight" can sometimes slow down or stop the raft in the ride tube.

**Oh, if all of our problems were that we had "too little weight" :)

Fastpass with Mickey!!!

Later this spring, face-to-face meetings with Mickey Mouse will move into a permanent new location at Town Square Theater, located inside the current Exposition Hall area at the entrance of Magic Kingdom® Park.

You will be able to obtain a Disney's FASTPASS® ticket specifying a one-hour window when you can return to see the popular character for hugs, photos and autographs -- without waiting in the standby queue. This marks the first time the complimentary, computerized service has been utilized for a character meet-and-greet at any Disney Park.

Inspired by animated shorts such as The Nifty Nineties and Mickey's Grand Opera, this building befits Mickey's stardom -- with a grand-Victorian-theater elevation, including a marquee that glistens with gold-leaf trim and sparkles with lights. Inside, there's a mosaic floor, lush curtains with gold rope tie-backs and polished-brass chandeliers.

Imagineers are creating new elements and surprises for your Clients, including an interactive queue -- with an extra touch of Disney magic -- and highly themed retail shops.
