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?

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

Next week, my little baby turns 5 – it’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years since he made me a mom – pardon me while I go sob about how big he’s gotten…

…Ok, now that I’ve had a good cry, back to the matter at hand – namely, his BIRTHDAY PARTY! It’s his first “friends” only party, and his theme? TOY STORY 4 – Specifically anything and everything to do with FORKY. Which – I can’t blame him – that movie was amazing, and Forky was hilarious

So, here’s what we have planned for the birthday boy:

 

We are going to make our own forkys, pin the eye on forky, and have a toy story photo booth with a giant forky! Oh. And matching shirts because – well yeah I am a bit extra haha

Pray for my survival tomorrow – as I try and tame a roomful of 5 year olds for craft and game time.

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?

Check out the “Sneak Peak” and Official Trailer Here

T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Fairytales Really DO Come True!

Many of us Disney Loving Gals have always dreamt of getting married at one of the Disney Parks – the Castle as the backdrop, with Mickey to give you away and dance the night away with you…and of course, marrying your own version of Prince Charming!

While most of us realize this is just a dream that will likely never come true, it’s still fun to imagine! And of course, if you have the money (specifically – LOTS of it) – you can make it happen! At Disney’s Fairy Tale Weddings & Honeymoons they make dreams come true every day!

They even recently created a television series about it, and just last week they had a Holiday themed episode of it:

xmasweddings5
I was of course plastered to the screen the whole time – and couldn’t believe just how amazing everything was! Everything was themed and sparkled down to the tiniest detail – all with that Magical Disney Touch!

Aside from showing the weddings and narrating the stories of the couples – Disney also snuck in plenty of Park footage – showing how beautiful everything looks for the Holidays and basically making me wish I was there right this minute and BRB I will just be booking a trip to Disney World…strategic marketing by Disney isn’t it??

So – moral of the story is – if you want to get married at Disney – save your pennies, and maybe someday you can have a wedding as beautiful as these!

This Spring the series will air showing even more fabulous Disney Weddings – I can’t wait!
