It’s one of my favorite days of the year, when my friends at Disney send us the new Disney movies 2018 lineup! Disney movies have been and will always be near and dear to my heart, so I love finding out what dates to circle on my calendar.

How we view and use media of any type has changed so much over the years. I’m reminded of that every time my daughter is confused by older technology or shocked by the lack of tech in my childhood (“wait, you didn’t watch videos on the computer when you were a kid? why is that TV a big box, I thought they were all flat?”).

Just say " show my photos " and Alexa will display your Prime Photos on your Amazon Fire TV

Everything is significantly easier to use now. Entertainment is portable, cameras fit in our pockets and don’t require film, and your phone can act as a TV. Thanks to Amazon for sponsoring this post and stepping up my tech game with cool products and services.

Disney’s Moana is one of my favorite movies from the last few years.  We received a copy last week from our friends at Disney and watched it three times with two different groups of people over the weekend.

This fresh Pineapple Fried Rice recipe is a great way to celebrate the release of Disney's Moana. Ham, pineapple, and peppers are perfect compliments to each other in this yummy fried rice.

When new movies release, I really love doing a movie-themed recipe or craft to enjoy with my family while we watch.  Originally I wanted to do something with coconuts, because after seeing Moana in theaters I knew they were a focus in the song “Where You Are“.  But it’s not exactly coconut season in Kentucky, so instead, I decided to make Pineapple Fried Rice.
