I’ve always had a little bit of a soft side when it comes to Disney Villains.  Is it a matter of choice, or are they a product of their circumstances?  I mean, it’s hard to hear the backstory of Maleficent and not feel at least a smidge of sympathy for her.

When I started to see commercials for Disney’s Descendants I knew I wanted to watch the premiere on The Disney Channel.  Fortunately my little Disney “mini me” Bubbles was happy to oblige and we sat down to watch it together.  I wasn’t disappointed – it was great! Continue reading »

Earlier this week we were invited to attend a screening of the new live-action Disney’s Cinderella movie.  After weeks of being snowed in, iced in, sick, and snowed in some more (nearly 18″ the first weekend of March. seriously) it was an evening out that both Bubbles and I were looking forward to.  We made it a complete mother-daughter night with dinner out before the movie.

Disney's Cinderella starring Lily James as #Cinderella

Bubbles was especially excited about the short film Frozen Fever that was showing before Cinderella.  She has been smitten with Elsa, Anna and crew since the moment she first saw them on the screen in Frozen and this was no exception.  She never took her eyes off the screen for the entire thing and only spoke once to tell me, “I love Elsa’s new dress”.

Just thinking about Jake & The Neverland Pirates the fun theme song pops into my mind.  Sometimes a song getting in your head like that isn’t a great thing, but when it’s Jake it’s awesome.  It puts a little bounce in your step and a smile on your face.

Disney Junior's Jake and the Neverland Pirates Battle for the Book - comes with a fun (free!) checkerboard bandana game and tokens right in the case.

Jake and his friends are characters we really enjoy.  In fact the LeapFrog LeapTV Disney Jake and The Never Land Pirates game has become Bubbles very favorite to play on our LeapTV. And, of course, we watch on Disney Junior. Continue reading »

Disney’s Into the Woods opened on Christmas Day and I have heard nothing but great things about it.  I’ve always loved musicals and musical theater – and actually did some theater in high school – so I’m really looking forward to this adaptation.  Unfortunately I’ve been under the weather for the last few days so we haven’t made it over yet but hope to next week.

Into the Woods fun facts: Mackenzie Mauzy as Rapunzel in Disney Into the Woods

In the meantime I’ve been enjoying listening to the phenomenal Into the Woods soundtrack.  Did you know that the music for the film was pre-recorded over a two-week period at Angel Studios in London with a 56-piece orchestra, composed of some of the best musicians from the London Symphony Orchestra and London Philharmonic?
