Guide to the Magic For Kids Giveaway!

~This giveaway is now CLOSED~

People are getting very excited in our house now that our trip to Disney World is just around the corner! To share some of the magic we're already feeling, I'm hosting a series of Disney giveaways this summer! Last month it was an adorable bow set from Ruby & Sue, and this month it's....

An interactive Disney World guide book for kids!
This book is ah-mazing. It's called The Guide to Magic For Kids and it's a MUST-HAVE for any child visiting Disney World! This book is filled with tons of cool stuff:

(click any photo for a larger view)
Each park has its own section - this is an example of the France pages in Epcot. Each country's page offers a space for kids to get a stamp, an autograph, and to learn that country's greeting! Every park page provides a place for kids to rate their experience, too - love it!!

Here are sample pages for the Fantasyland portion of Magic Kingdom - look at how fun this is!! There's a place for kids to "check off" which attractions they visited by applying matching stickers, and also a "Where Am I?" section - a sort of visual scavenger hunt!

There are even journal pages, and this is what totally won me over. I have always been a thought-keeper (hence this blog!) and I have many, many journals/diaries from my life. It warms my heart that this will be James' *first* journal! There are quite a few pages provided and each day gets its own two page spread complete with a weather tracker and boxes for your child to fill in their favorites from the day!

I l-o-v-e this book. Seriously. The amount of activity it provides, the way it's organized, and all the tips offered in a kid-friendly way - it's just so unique and special. James and I really enjoyed looking through it and we can't wait to fill it up with his Disney World memories. What a fantastic keepsake!

Tim Foster, the creative genius behind Guide to the Magic, has generously offered to gift one of these books to one of you! It'll be just the thing for your Disney World trip. And consider this: even if you're not planning a trip now, go ahead and enter - you can save it for when you do visit Disney World. And even if you're not planning a trip ever, go ahead and enter - surely you know someone who'll be visiting Disney World and this book would make an excellent gift!
