This last weekend we took an impromptu trip to Disneyland. I took the opportunity to go check out Galaxy Edge and visit Batu. I tried the green milk, and over at the Launchpad in Tomorrowland the kiddos reconnected with Chewbacca. He’s a family favorite (especially with my daughter). Galaxy Edge is amazing, if you are a Star Wars fan, you really should go. It’s like stepping into one of the movies! Talk to me about seeing this incredible place! #ellenrileysimplyenchanted #simplyenchantedtravel

Another fun destination for the Holidays is Disneyland and California Adventure in California. Two iconic attractions The Haunted Mansion and Its a Small World have such creative overlays for the season. These only happen in Disneyland in California. Also, other parts of the parks have fun, pretty and often whimsical decorations. It is amazing to see the Disney creativity come out during the holidays in these parks. It is not too early to think Holiday travel if you want these experiences, pictures and memories. Now is the time to plan! #ellenrileysimplyenchanted #simplyenchantedtravel

We are in an anything princess phase right now. So this bow representing Ariel is perfect. Our family was pretty excited to hear about making The Little Mermaid into a live action. What movie have you been most excited about recently? No spoilers please!
One of the greatest joys I get from planning vacations is when families share with me the moments that created wonderful memories for them. I had the pleasure of planning this little cuties first trip to Walt Disney World! Isn’t she just the most precious thing you’ve ever seen? I just love my job!
Can you imagine celebrating Halloween while on a Disney Cruise? Don’t just imagine it, try it! I’m super excited to be doing one of these this year. Cruising with Disney is amazing anyway, add in a holiday celebration and it is sure to be out of this world exciting. #simplyenchantedtravel #ellenrileysimplyenchanted
Oh my! 30 looks good on you Disney Hollywood Studios. What is your favorite ride, attraction, snack or memory involving Hollywood Studios? I love the carrot cake cookie, and Hollywood Twilight Zone Tower of Terror is one of my all time favorite rides.
Okay, if you are a parent, sit down for this thought. We really only get 18 summers with our children before they graduate. That is only 18 summers that we get them to give them incredible memories, to build mind pictures, and to show them the joys of special vacations. Only 18 summers! Luckily my kiddos are still pretty young, but this thought still makes me want to be sure that I am giving my kids the best possible memories to look back on, I know my parents did that with me and it’s a tradition I want to pass on. How many summers do you have left? I have 12 and 16 summers left.
What are you doing with your 18 summers? At a loss? I can help with that! #18summers #ellenrileysimplyenchanted #simplyenchantedtravel
This is the Disney Wonder. This ship sails the Mexican Riviera, the West Coast of the US, Alaska, and the Panama Canal. This was the ship my family sailed on recently, and it was a wonderful place to call home for the duration of our cruise. I can’t say enough positive about the Disney Cruise Line. If you want a fabulous family vacation with the Disney service standard, time to be together as a family, but also the opportunity to relax and have time as an adult or as a couple, this is the vacation for you! I love the time with my children, but also the moments to reconnect with the love of my life, my husband.
Just got back from a fabulous Disney Cruise for my birthday! Do you see this picture right here? One of the reasons I love this cruise is the magic moments created for my family, my kids shared a few moments like this together. I won’t say that the Disney Cruise Line makes your kids get along, but what I will say is that they take care of you so much that you are able to relax and catch the moments when it does happen. We sailed on The Wonder out of San Diego. Such a wonderful trip with so many precious memories.
A little more about the excitement coming! I am so excited!

A new member of the Disney family! So excited about the new baby giraffe born at the Animal Kingdom yesterday. I love seeing baby animals, especially seeing them interact with their parents.
We’re thrilled to welcome the newest member of the Animal Kingdom Family! Mom, Mara, gave birth to a Masai giraffe calf today around 2 p.m. on the Kilimanjaro Safari Savanna. Mom and calf are bonding well and we hope to share more details soon!
I love Harry Potter! I remember getting these books as they came out. I felt like I was in Hogsmeade. I may have gotten a bit emotional walking through here. This was a great experience, especially getting to do this with my Mr.

One of the things I love about trips is trying new foods and drinks. I get so many memories associated with certain tastes and smells. This particular beverage is a “Rum Around the Christmas Tree” from Trader Sams in the Disneyland Hotel. This drink was after a fun day of building memories with my family as we took in all the stunning Christmas decorations and had fun together.
