The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar – 5 New Episodes Now on DVD! | #DisneyJunior #TheLionGuard

In this house, we love Disney. I think pretty much every one knows that. Because there are young girls in the house, Disney Junior is almost always on the TV. There are so many great shows, like Vampirina, that we all love to watch as a family. The Lion Guard is another family favorite so we were thrilled to see a new DVD release from them this week. The Lion Guard: The Rise of Scar collects 5 of our favorite episodes (we are all suckers for a good villain like Scar) and is available now on DVD!

Win a $70 My Little Pony: The Movie Prize Pack to Celebrate It’s Release Today! | #MyLittlePony

I am a huge My Little Pony fan, always have been. I grew up watching these ponies and have adored watching the new (and old) episodes with my daughters. The fact that they are still just as popular with young girls fills my heart with happiness. I learned a lot from this group of friends – and I think my girls have too. When we found out that there was going to be a brand new movie, of course we rushed out to watch it in theaters. Well, now you can bring My Little Pony: The Movie home! The Mane 6 are joined by fun new friends voiced by an all-star cast in this magical adventure arriving on digital December 19 and Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on January 9 from Lionsgate.

5 Reasons We Go To Disney on Ice Every Year | #DisneyOnIce #DreamBig

As you likely already know, the Smith family are HUGE Disney fans. We are Disney Vacation Club members and visit Walt Disney World at least twice a year. We pretty much eat, breath, and live Disney, so when Disney on Ice comes to town, we always make sure to go see it. This year, thanks to Feld Entertainment, we were able to attend opening night. The theme for this show was Dream Big, and I am not going to lie, it made me tear up a few times. We go ever single year, and here is why.

The Perfect Way to Display Your Funko Pops in Style – with Display Geek! | #Funko

I have been a collector of Funko Pops for a while now. It all started when I got one as a gift – and now I cannot stop. They are so cute and the perfect way to feed all of my different fandoms. From The Walking Dead, to Game of Thrones, to Marvel and Star Wars – there are so many to choose from. Personally, I have always had a problem with unboxing them. I try. And a select few would be opened. Maybe it is the collector in me, but I just couldn’t bring myself to open them up – until now.

DuckTales: Woo-oo is a Story of Fun and Adventure – Bring it Home 12/19! | #DuckTales #Disney #DisneyXD

I grew up watching DuckTales, so when I heard that Disney was bringing it back, I was pretty excited. In fact, walking around Walt Disney World this summer, my whole family was singing “DuckTales Woo-oo!” wherever we went. I am thrilled to be able to bring my daughters up watching this show, since it meant so much to me when I was younger. Recently, we were sent an advance copy of DuckTales: Woo-oo, a special from the new season.

Tangled: The Series Queen for a Day Teaches Kids to Be Themselves | #Tangled #TangledTheSeries

Everyone in my family is a HUGE Rapunzel fan. Tangled is hands down one of our favorite Disney movies. We watch it together at least once a month. A while back, when it was announced there was going to be a Tangled show, we were all thrilled! We tuned in on premiere night and have been hooked ever since. Tangled the Series: Queen for a Day is a special that aired in November. We loved it, so were super excited to get an advance copy of it on DVD! It hits stores December 12th – just in time to be the perfect stocking stuffer!

The Incredibles 2 Teaser Trailer is Here – and It Gave Me Goosebumps! | #Incredibles2 #DisneyPixar

Incredibles came out in 2004 and immediately skyrocketed to the top of my most favorite Disney movies ever list. I sort of have a thing for superheroes, in case you never noticed that. I loved everything about it – the family, the superpowers, the villains, the backstory… It was incredibly (no pun intended) well done. With the way it ended I knew that it left the door open for a second one, and I was dying to see that happen. When it was announced, I was thrilled – and now that time is almost here! Next year (June 15, 2018), Incredibles 2 will be hitting theaters, and the teaser trailer that was just released gave me goosebumps.

Countdown to Christmas with the Playmobil Advent Calendars + 5 Playmobil Holiday Gift Ideas! | #playmobil

One of our favorite things to do as a family around the holidays is open up an advent calendar (or two!) together. Every year, each of my daughters pick one out and then wait, very impatiently, until December 1st. This year, we were sent a couple from Playmobil – and they were jumping for joy! I expected them to fight over the same one, but they each grabbed one and were happy as a couple of clams!

Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature Will Have the Whole Family Laughing | #NutJob2

I am sure I have said this time and time again, but one of our favorite things to do as a family is cuddle up and watch a movie. We have family movie night once a week, and I truly think it is something we all look forward to. When we first saw trailers for Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature, we knew it was a movie we would all love to see. No matter how many times we saw it, we were still laughing! Unfortunately, we didn’t get to theaters to see it, but that’s OK because Universal sent us an advance copy to check out!
