Once again forgive me for being a little side tracked. I posted the photos on Pintrest and promised the directions would be here.
- a box of Zebra Cakes
- a box of swiss rolls
- treat bags
- colored trwist ties or curling ribbon
- popsicle sticks
- melting chocolate
- smooth knife for spreading chocolate
- sharp knife for cutting
- cookie sheet for assembling
using sharp knife cut two pieces of swiss roll the thickness of the Zebra cake and place the flat side against the cake to form ears ( no sticks yet they are last)
asseble as many as you plan to make when completed we will glue together with chocolate
place a small amount of melting chocolate in bowl to microwave when smooth start gluing the ears on each cake
once they are completed using more chocolate gently paint over just the front of the swiss roll then dip sticks one by one about an inch in chocolate and insert in cake for a handle
once they cool or set up flip over and repeat painting the swiss roll
again after cool or set now pick up the cake on a stick and completely paint the Ear ( swiss roll) be careful the chocolate from the swiss roll will flake off so seal it completely
cool off your done just bag them up
Travel, Vacation, Holiday what ever you may call it. What does it mean to you?
Time to enjoy family and friends, or relax and see the world. Vacation means different things to different people but one thing is a constant “It’s WORK.”
Have you ever sat down and figured out how much time you spend looking for places to go and places to stay. Then more time on how to get there and how to pay for it. And “LADIES” we know in addition to all that research we also have to pack for our children and that includes the “Big Ones.”
On average according to several different research companies prospective travelers spend between 46 and 60 hours minimum, researching before they travel. Do you have that much time to waste? If you do are you sure you found Reputable places to spend your hard earned money.
I spent a lot of time over the years doing just that. I decided to go in to Business as a Travel Planner and have obtained connections with the Top Companies in the Industry that use only Vetted suppliers to insure your satisfaction. So take the WORK out of your vacation and let me do the planning for you. www.atouristlifetravel.com

I thought some of this was really cool. I hope all you Disney Geeks enjoy it I know I did.
This week we cover (remotely) Star Wars Celebration Anaheim. We talk about the new Trailer to death and we recap the amazing first Disney Cruise Line meetup at the Atlantic Dance Hall at the Boardwalk Resort.
Check out our episode at the link below!
Book a Disney World Hotel, register on the Disney website. There are nice free maps and planners they will send you. Also you can make dinner reservations and plan out your day before you arrive (weeks in advance not days). I know it sounds crazy but I promise this is a must. Plan what park you think you will visit on what day and reserve your favorite place to eat. You can reserve more than one restaurant as long as the times are different this way if you are to far away to get to one there is always the other so spread it out on your map. On that day when you have a better idea of your time schedule you can stop in any restaurant and cancel the extra. Usually you can show up 45 min early or late and you are still golden. If you have NO reservation you may never eat. I found this out first hand and after paying big bucks for a food plan it was infuriating. You can almost always make a change to an existing reservation.
If you book their hotel you are automatically going to get the White glove airport pick up at no additional charge and you can still cancel with no fees even a few days before. Tickets for the parks can be purchased when you arrive. Your hotel has a concierge that will help you. You can also buy discounted tickets . I advise individual days as they do not expire. If you did cancel at the last-minute you could still use them at another time or resell them. Airfare, if that is your method of transportation usually can be exchanged but must be used up within the year. More helpful airline information is available. If your dates are flexible you can use Disney’s booking website to compare seasons the cost difference can be astounding. Also check the show schedules , often things are only on specific days so that may be a deciding factor. Some shows can only be accessed from within the specific park or with additional show tickets. Look closely at the Disney Maps they are helpful for selecting your Disney Hotel. If you are only visiting a couple of parks you may be able to stay at one of their hotels with nearby transportation or a back entrance for guests it will cut down on the time you will otherwise waste on a Disney bus. An example of this is, The Polynesian Resort is within WALKING distance of the Magic Kingdom or that Epcot is accessible by Boat if you are staying a The Beach Club Resort, The Board Walk Inn or the Yacht Club Resort. Down Town Disney can be accessed by boat from Port Orleans and Old Key West. If you are a seasoned Disney visitor like me you may wish to try a behind the scenes tour. I love the exotic things available at the different hotels but the pools are never warm enough for me.
