TODAY IS THE DAY (Disney Plus Is HERE!)

It’s before 6am. I’m at the gym. And I have already downloaded Disney+ (what can I say, I’m impatient and couldn’t wait any longer!)

So I signed up for my free trial (after I pulled my Disney credit card out of my Disney wallet…let’s just say this Disney nerd has been waiting a long time for this)

Here’s what it looks like when you sign in:

I love the look of the app – the categories that immediately caught my eye were “Originals” and of course “Out Of The Vault” – which brings me right back to my childhood – but no VHS needed with this new service!

My son will very excited to see this and all it has to offer for him – especially the selection of toy story shorts and movies. Of course I am ordering this service “for him” but let’s be real here – it’s really for me!

I know I’m not alone – how many others out there will be downloading the app and signing up today?

Happy streaming!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Top Vacation Memories

I read an article recently that said family vacations have a long-lasting impact on kids’ happiness – and I couldn’t agree more. It can be a lot of planning and packing, and it’s not cheap to go away as a family – but it’s worth it in the long run. A chance to disconnect from work and the pressures of “adulting” is something we ALL need every now and then

For me, some of my best family memories are of the trips my parents and I took to Walt Disney World when I was a kid – those good times have stuck with me, and I hope my son can say the same when he grows up!

He talks about the trip still, and how much he loved the rides and characters – and how he can’t wait to go back:

Hopefully we can take him back soon – since I have science on my side, I think convincing my husband should be easy, right? Read more about the impact family vacations have on kids Here

Disney+ Is Coming – Are YOU Ready?

disney-plus-tv-originals-2-hero-aldd

Less than a week until Disney launches their new streaming service – Disney Plus is set to release on November 12th, and I don’t know about you, but for me it feels like Christmas is coming early this year!

Of course, in true Disney fashion – you can already Sign-Up, and even get a discount for paying annually (as opposed to monthly). The monthly price is set at $6.99, but annually they are offering it for $69.99 – which is basically like getting 2 months free. Additionally, they will be offering it as an add-on to Hulu – which will cost $13 a month for a Hulu/Disney+/ESPN+ bundle

But the BIG question on everyone’s mind (including mine!) – What will actually be ON Disney+? Like – what can I watch? Will all my favorite movies/shows be on there? At launch, there will be hundreds of movies and shows to choose from – including animated classics, Disney channel shows and much more – check out the list Here

The other question I had was – can I download movies/shows to watch offline? And – according to the official Disney+ Website – you CAN! “Download any TV show or movie – Unlimited downloads on up to 10 devices, so you can take your favorites with you” This is the best news of all to me – as it means I can load up my son’s (and my!) tablets before long road trips with fresh movies and shows for us to enjoy!

Learn more about this sure to be amazing streaming service here

What about YOU will you be investing in this new service?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Happy Halloween!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN TO ALL – hopefully you had a fun time Trick-Or-Treating, eating candy, and enjoying all things spooky – I know I did!

I was hoping my son would pick a Toy Story costume this year to go along with his Toy Story Theme Birthday Party, but he decided “spooky” was the way to go this year! He was a (glow in the dark!) skeleton, I was a bat, my husband was a vampire, and his aunt was a ghost! I would have made a great Bo Peep I think, but as a bat I did ok I think (plus – one of my son’s classmates told me I looked like Vamipirina – so – winning there I think!)

Here’s a few snapshots of some of our Halloween fun:

I feel like we spent the last few weeks in Full-on Halloween Mode – parties and events kept us BUSY – and yesterday was a whirlwind! I went into his classroom which was so much fun to see all the kids dressed up, they did a parade and fun Halloween stations, then of course we went trick-or-treating too!

It’s hard to believe that another Halloween is done! Now – it’s time to focus on Thanksgiving and Christmas – I have started my shopping already (of course, because I am like that, ha!) – what about you? Are you ready to have the onslaught of the Holidays in effect?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – The Only Thing I Love More Than Disney World In The Fall…

…Is the FOOD at Disney World in the Fall! Disney World in the Fall is magical and amazing – and that would be enough – BUT – they obviously kick it up even more with their amazing selection of seasonal snacks and menu items, too!

This is another one of the Main Street Bakery’s amazing fall items – filled with caramel, and topped with a “cauldron” and chocolate buttercream, and featuring an edible homage to the Sanderson Sisters – this “Amuck, Amuck, Amuck Cupcake” is truly a delicious, one of a kind treat!

Head over to Liberty Square Popcorn Cart for one of these evilly delicious Maleficent Cones – lime soft serve in a black waffle cone, topped with chocolate horns and purple sugar

Now – here’s my favorite fall treat of them all – a Pumpkin Spice Milkshake topped with candy pumpkins and a Mickey Marshmallow. It’s available at Auntie Gravity’s Galactic Goodies, and if this doesn’t put you in the fall mood, nothing will!

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Toy Story Party Fun!

Last week I wrote about how we were Prepping for my son’s 5th birthday party, and how I was hoping it would all go well.

Luckily, it went off without a hitch – everyone had fun, enjoyed the game, craft and piñata, and there were no tantrums (from the kids or adults – so that’s a MAJOR win!)

Everyone loved the Toy Story theme, and I was proud of my husband and I for pulling off a party for over 20 kids and not losing it – lol! It was his first “friends” birthday party and he loved having all his pals there to play and celebrate with!

TGIF!
