Review: "Walt Life," Disney Magic on Your Doorstep!




Hey Howdy Hey, Disney Fans!!!

Let's face it, as adults, going to the mailbox isn't very fun. Bills. Junk advertisements. Random catalog. (Who still bothers to order from catalogs?) More bills. Coupons for the pizza place that you heard had a roach issue. Even more bills. Womp-womp. Pretty depressing. Well, what if I told you that once a month, going to your mailbox could bring all the magic and excitement of walking into World of Disney at Disney Springs? It could bring the tastes of Main Street USA, or the comforts of a Walt Disney World Resort? I bet you just got a whole lot more excited about that trip to mailbox, huh?


Well, dreams DO come true, guys and gals! All of the magic and wonder of shopping at Walt
Disney World can arrive right at your doorstep, via one of several different Disney-themed subscription box services. Subscription box, you say? What, pray-tell, is this amazing thing you speak of? Subscription boxes are all the rage right now. For a monthly fee, consumers can get mystery boxes delivered to their door, filled with themed items, gifts and surprises like Japanese candy, beauty products, healthy snacks, etc. And of course it didn't take long for Disney fans to start demanding boxes themed around the Mouse, and suppliers started sprouting up.


 

One of the best known Disney subscription boxes is by a company called "Walt Life." This company is run by Disney fans, for Disney fans. When I asked Sarah of Walt Life what they love about running this mail-order merchandise company, she said, "More than anything, we love the smiles that Walt Life brings into our lives. Whether it's here at work where we get to laugh, love, and enjoy the Disney Magic every single day, or it's seeing the bright faces of our subscribers when they get to open their boxes. It's the smiles that make Walt Life such a Magical experience for all of us." Sounds pretty great, huh? And I can tell you all first hand, that everyone on the team is a delight to interact with! You can tell they really love their jobs. 

Walt Life offers several different subscriptions, that cater to various budgets and likes.


Subscriptions can be cancelled at any time, so when you sign up, you don't have to commit for a year, unlike some other services. There are boxes with general merchandise, of varying sizes and prices, (starting at $20), boxes of all snacks from Disney Parks and even a box of just pins. (The pin boxes start at just $8 a month!) The box I got was the "Magic Plus", which runs $48 a month. When you order your subscription, you'll not only get to select the type and size of box, you'll also select male, female or neutral and an age range of who it's for. (All Ages, 0-4, 5-9, 10-17 or 18+) I got the neutral, all ages box. Would you like to see what kind of magical treats were inside? Let's check it out together!

First, let me say that Walt Life has a super user-friendly website, which you can check out by clicking HERE. Aside from the fact that they make it simple to select your desired subscription, they also have a great "chat" feature, allowing you to interact with the staff at any time, and get your questions and concerns addressed. It's evident that the customer experience is important to them, as I received surveys from them rating my experience using the chat and the site. I was very impressed by this!

About a week after I ordered my box, on a gloomy, rainy day here in Orlando (the fifth in a row!), I was delighted to open my mailbox and find this gorgeous, magical, exciting package inside! I mean, just LOOK at this box! They put so much effort into selecting the artwork, characters and quotes.













The box was packed to the brim with awesome Disney surprises, starting with this super cute Rapunzel pillow. I love the artwork on the pillow and the little included pocket on the back makes it a perfect tooth fairy pillow for my daughter!









There was also a matching Rapunzel PVC figure that my daughter immediately claimed as her own.



She also claimed this little Cinderella notebook, that closes with a magnet. She said she needs it to "write down her appointments." She's 9. I don't know what "appointments" she has to keep track of, but hey, it made her happy.





My five year old son claimed the Mickey and the Roadster Racers beach ball for himself, as well as the Cars reusable bag.






When I opened the little Magic Bandits, that are for decorating your Magic Band, there were three in the pack, so I figured finally I'd get something I could keep. My son said, "Hey, one for me, one for Sissy and one for Dada!" What the...



Hey, what about me? "Mamma, you can have this postcard.", said my daughter. Well, thanks.



I was also told I could keep the little Walt Life postcard puzzle in the box... after the kids play with it, of course.



I think next time, I'll order the Adult box so that I can actually keep some stuff myself. But kids being kids, they'll find a use for anything that comes in the box and claim that too! I honestly don't mind sharing, though. It was fun to get something in the mail that we all got enjoyment out of. And who knows, maybe they'll let me borrow some of their new stuff!



The Walt Life box was fun to open, right to the very bottom, where I found a description of the items I had received, printed on a piece of paper that also included a hand-written note thanking me for being part of the Walt Life family. (Nice touch!)


There was even a contest where you collect tokens from the monthly boxes and can win a trip to Walt Disney World! How cool is that?


Overall, I found the box to be a blast. It was fun to open, and really seemed like a great value, considering how costly some of these items would have been if I had purchased them individually in the parks. Obviously, I live near Disney and can get there anytime, but most folks can't, so having access to this kind of fun and magic in your mailbox is incredible! I had an awesome experience with the staff and would not hesitate to order again, gift it to someone else, or to recommend it to friends.

If you are interested in looking into the Walt Life boxes for yourself or a friend or family member, check out their site at https://waltlife.com. You can even get 5% off your first box, using the promo code WALTLIFE.

Has all this Disney merchandise got you jonesing for an actual trip to see the mouse? Contact an agent at Kingdom Konsultants Travel to help with all of your vacation planning needs!

In the meantime, have a magical week, Disney Fans!

You Must Be This Tall to Ride... Universal Orlando Resort Edition

Universal Orlando Resort has branded itself as the more grown-up vacation destination in central Florida. With advertising campaigns like "kids grow up, so do vacations" and "grow bolder", it should be no surprise that there are many attractions at the Universal Theme Parks with height requirements.  If you're visiting the Universal Orlando Theme Parks with little ones, it's very important to familiarize yourself with the ride height requirements so you know which attractions your little ones can, and can't ride, based on their height. You'll find these helpful signs with height requirements for all of the attractions when you enter the Universal Orlando Theme Parks. Universal Studios Florida 34 inches - E.T. Adventure 36 inches - Woody Woodpecker's Nuthouse Coaster 40 inches - Despicable Me Minion Mayhem 40 inches - Fast & Furious - Supercharged 40 inches - Race Through New York Starring Jimmy Fallon 40 inches - The Simpsons Ride 40 inches -

Frontera Cocina at Disney Springs

Frontera Cocina is one of the many restaurants you will find with a celebrity chef at Disney Springs, this one is brought to you by seven-time James Beard award winner, Rick Bayless.  The warm colors and open atmosphere is very welcoming for a contemporary Mexican dining experience.  Reservations are highly suggested and can be made via My Disney Experience or the Open Table app and the restaurant is typically open for lunch and dinner from 11am to 11pm daily.   We had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and the restaurant wasn't too terribly busy at all, which was a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of the weekend. We settled in at a table in the middle of the restaurant and got ready for the meal ahead.  While somehow I missed a photo, we did start our meal with $5 margaritas which is definitely a great deal while on Disney property!  This was a "Margarita Monday" special and we would highly recommend it!  We also opted for some chips and salsa and some queso. Now,

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs

Morimoto Asia at Disney Springs is one of my go-to spots for a great meal.  The restaurant itself is beautiful and I've had so many great meals there over the years. Chef Morimoto is a relatively well-known chef after appearing on Iron Chef America as one of the original Iron Chefs, so when he opened a restaurant at Disney Springs I was so excited to give it a try being a fan of the show and of Chef Morimoto.  This restaurant brings his masterful Asian cuisine to Florida in his first "Pan-Asian" concept.  With 20-foot chandeliers and glass walls giving a peek into the kitchen and a sushi bar upstairs, there is something to catch everyone's eye here. In October, they had specialty spooky cocktails on the menu that we just couldn't resist trying! One was pumpkin and lychee based and the other was grapefruit and rose and they were both good but the black magic was definitely our favorite.  Twisted Pumpkin: absolut elyx, pumpkin spiced liqueur, lychee, liqueur, house
