Disney and ABC Family are giving away an amazing trip to Disney World. The Grand Prize winner will receive a five day/ for night vacation for 4, including a one night stay in the Cinderella Castle Suite. In addition, they will also receive a $1,000 Disney gift card and the services of a VIP Tour Guide for 8 hours each day of their tickets. That's quite the prize, so I will definitely be entering. There will also be 8 weekly winners who will receive either a $500 Disney gift card or a Vera Bradley duffle bag from the new Disney Collection. Good Luck!

When they enter the rotunda for the first song, the choir director requests that everyone move closer to the center of the room. The acoustics are absolutely amazing! The director introduces each song as well as giving a brief history lesson about where the song came from and why it's important. Then they begin to sing and the music reaches a crescendo- honestly, it gives me chills.
The program of songs changes with the seasons. Most of the year, they sing American patriotic songs. At Christmas, they sing traditional Christmas Carols. One of my favorite songs performed by Voices of Liberty is the Battle Hymn of the Republic. It's enough to make you cry, it's so beautiful. Other favorite songs include the Americana favorites: This Land is Your Land, America the Beautiful, and Ol' Man River. You can also hear Disney favorites such as Golden Dream and When You Wish Upon a Star, as well as classics like Amazing Grace. There is a CD available from Amazon and other retailers featuring a selection of their songs. It is called "A Capella Americana" by the Liberty Voices.
The Voices of Liberty perform several times a day, for approximately 15 minutes, before each showing of the American Adventure. They are definitely worth adding to your "must see list" at EPCOT.

Spoonful.com. There are printable activities, mazes, and games to keep kids busy while they wait for Thanksgiving dinner. And the paper Mickey and Minnie pilgrims and squash Pluto crafts are too adorable. Snow White's cranberry necklace would be a great way to introduce felting techniques to kids. I think my favorite, however, is the printable shrink bracelet with Mickey and Minnie acorn charms and a super cute pumpkin pie charm. There is even a charm with the whole gang dressed as pilgrims gathered for dinner. Should you need invitations, planners, or cup labels for your holiday meal, those are available as well. Just save and print and you'll be well on your way to a Disney-fied Thanksgiving.
