“I miss Disneyland,” my daughter Clara said with a sigh the other day.
I don’t blame her. Last year she had the opportunity to go to both the Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort, and the two experiences left a big impression. Now that our family has been playing Disney Infinity, her Disney dreams have been rekindled.
It got me thinking about fun ways to incorporate some of that Disney magic into her room.
Here are seven fun bedroom ideas inspired by Disney characters:
