Disney+ – 2 Months In & LOVING It!

disney-plus-investors-content-2019

I don’t know about you, but I personally couldn’t WAIT until The launch of Disney+ – it felt like something that was so needed, not just for us Disney fanatics, but for anyone and everyone with kids, without kids – basically everyone. It was needed for everyone, no matter who they are, or what age – Disney+ is basically a necessity for the world.

Ok, maybe that’s being a bit dramatic, but – I personally feel like it is the perfect addition to our TV lineup. Like many other families these days, we don’t subscribe to a traditional “Cable” service, but instead have a few streaming subscriptions – Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and now Disney+!

Now that it’s finally arrived and I have had a chance to play with it, I have to say I love the interface and how easy it is to use, and the only drawback I have seen is that the newest movies aren’t on there yet (specifically Toy Story 4 – my son has mentioned he wishes it was on there multiple times haha)

I love that it’s pretty much all family friendly, and that there are tons of “older” movies from the “Disney Vault” on there so that my husband and I can easily share the movies of our childhood with our son (most of which he has been wholly unimpressed by – but we will keep trying!)

What about you? Have you taken the plunge into Disney+? What are you loving most about it?

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?

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!

Classic Disney Movie Remakes – Yay Or Nay?

Lately, Disney has been following a new trend of re-making animated Disney classics into live action films

Recently, films such as Aladdin, Dumbo & The Lion King have been re-released as live action films, and over the past few years we have seen The Jungle Book as well as Beauty And The Beast be re-done as well. And slated to be re-made are The Little Mermaid, Lady & The Tramp, Fox & The Hound, and the list goes on

The remakes have been doing well in theaters, as Disney has a VERY loyal fan base – anything Disney is always popular, and always makes a TON of money.

That being said, I have to say – I am NOT a fan of these remakes – at all. They are boring, lifeless, and lose all the magic that the originals carried with them. Maybe it’s just me, and maybe the magic is all in my head – since the original Lion King and Aladdin are ones I remember seeing in theaters as a kid (and then re-watching over and over again on VHS!), and so for movies like those – no remake can compare.

My son recently watched the animated Aladdin, and loved it – the Genie was a favorite, as was Abu – and when I asked him if he wanted to watch the live action version and showed him the trailer of it online, he was very adamant that he did NOT want to watch the remake. I don’t blame him – I don’t want to watch it either #sorrynotsorry

But – I would LOVE to hear what YOU think – are these remakes worth a trip to the movie theater? Or is Disney just trying to make money off of the nostalgia factor?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Disney’s Live Action Dumbo Takes Flight!

hqdefault

Dumbo is one of those Disney movies I could never watch – it just was too much for me, emotionally. The mocking of Dumbo, the treatment of his mother, Dumbo and his mother and the song – I can’t – there just aren’t enough tissues in the world for it

So when I heard they were re-making it into a live-action film – let’s just say, my feelings were “mixed” at best…

Dumbo1

But, after reading up on it – the cast seems really strong, and from what I have read and seen in trailers and such – it might just turn out to be an amazing remake! I will give it a chance…but I will still be bringing my tissues for SURE. The movie hits theaters next month – Will YOU be heading to see it?

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – I’m Just Here For The Food

Ok – I know I talk a TON about the FOOD at Walt Disney World – and with GOOD REASON – they have the best food on the planet – seriously. They really go above and beyond in every category when crafting the Disney Guest Experience – but the cuisine is one of the areas in which I take particular pleasure – I love checking out all the new snacks and themed items they have come up with every time I am in WDW

It may only be August, but Disney is already planning for the upcoming season – the BEST one of all, FALL, and they are already creating some amazing items for HALLOWEEN too – FOOD items that is:

Halloweenfood1Halloweenfood2Halloweenfood3Halloweenfood4Halloweenfood5

From a “Not so Poison Apple” cupcake, to a spider web-themed Mickey Cinnamon Roll, to Pumpkin cheesecake, Haunted Mansion Themed “graves” full of dirt and worms, and amazing collectible popcorn buckets – plus many more – your taste buds will no doubt delight in these spooky snacks!

These amazing treats are only available during Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (running on select evenings at the Magic Kingdom now through October) – and personally I think the chance to check these out is worth the price of a ticket to the party. But then again, I am partial to snacks – so I would love to know what YOU think – are you headed to the Party to sample some of these treats?
Check out the full listing (complete with drool worthy pictures) Here
