Costuming the Characters of Incredibles 2: Mid-Century Aesthetic & Lots of Hard Work | #Incredibles2Event

Did you know that when making an animated feature film, the crew has to create looks for every single background character? I guess I knew that, but I never thought much about how much work goes in to it. They have to design not only their clothes, but their hairstyles and body types. Of course, the main characters have to be styled as well. It could totally be argued that more work goes in to the costumes for animated films than live action films. While at Pixar, I was lucky enough to talk to the costume designers for Incredibles 2 and I learned so much about the whole process.

Disney Channel’s Newest Original Movie, Zombies, On DVD 4/24!

When we were on our most recent family vacation at Disney World,  the newest Disney Channel Original Movie came out. I remember my husband and I cuddling up with our daughters on our bed at the Polynesian and watching Zombies. My girls are in to spooky things for some reason, and so this movie was right up their alley! Not too scary, but featuring one of their favorite things – ZOMBIES! Honestly, my husband and I really enjoyed this movie too.

A Tour of Pixar Animation Studios & The Pixar Archives to Prepare for Incredibles 2! | #Incredibles2Event

Incredibles 2 hits theaters in June and after heading to Pixar Animation Studios to learn all about it, I can pretty much guarantee it is going to be the movie of the summer. I was totally blown away by all the work that goes into creating an animated feature film. Stay tuned for all the details on that later, but right now I want to tell you guys all about my experience at Pixar Animation Studios. This place is amazing. I knew it would be surreal to step on to the campus, but I wasn’t prepared for all the emotions I would feel. And all the awesome things I would see.

Throw the Perfect Puppy Dog Pals Viewing Party! | #Disney #PuppyDogPals

Puppy Dog Pals is a hit show on Disney Junior and we love it in our home. It features two adorable pug puppies and since we have a pug (and a puggle), this quickly became a favorite in our house. It is one of the few kids shows that we can watch together as a family and all truly enjoy. On April 10th, the first season was released on DVD and we threw our own Puppy Dog Pals viewing party!

10 Must Eat Foods + Can’t Miss Experiences at Disneyland Resort’s Pixar Fest | #Incredibles2Event

Pixar Fest is finally here! That’s right – Pixar Fest opens TODAY at Disneyland Resort. I recently visited Pixar Animation Studios to learn all about Incredibles 2 (so much more coming on that) and while there, I got to chat with the Disney Parks Pixar team. Of course Pixar Fest was the main topic of conversation and let us in on all the details. We also talked about Pixar heading to all the Disney Parks around the world. Personally, I am hoping for more Coco presence in Mexico at Epcot! Pixar Fest runs from today, April 13th, to September 3rd. If you are heading out to California to partake in the fun, here are some don’t miss activities (and food!).

5 Reasons Every Disney Fan Needs To Visit The Walt Disney Family Museum with Video!

You might have an idea that I am a big fan of all things Disney. One of my most favorite places on Earth is Walt Disney World, but there is a place in San Francisco, CA that is at the top of my list. I have been lucky enough to visit The Walt Disney Family Museum twice in the last year and it is something that every Disney fan needs to experience. My husband is just as big a Disney fan as I am and I really hope one day he will be able to visit. There is so much to see – and so much to learn about Walt’s life inside those walls!

Disney Junior’s Puppy Dog Pals Season One Comes to DVD!

My youngest daughter is obsessed with Puppy Dog Pals. I mean OBSESSED. Her fifth birthday party was Puppy Dog Pals – and her cake came out amazing by the way. We made sure that her gift was a Puppy Dog Pals playhouse. This was months ago and she still plays with it every single day. So when I found out that Disney Junior was releasing the first season on DVD, I knew she needed it. They sent us an advance copy and when it came in the mail, she cried happy tears.

Inside the Disney Vacation Club Resort: Polynesian Deluxe Studio | #DVCMember #Disney

About a year ago, my family joined the Disney Vacation Club. Our only regret is not joining sooner. Our home resort is the Polynesian and we just stayed there for the first time. To say that our trip was heaven is an understatement. Before this, we had never stayed at a monorail resort. What a difference this makes! Heading to Magic Kingdom and Epcot was ridiculously easy (you can even walk to the transportation center from the Polynesian in less than five minutes!). We ended up taking several breaks in the middle of the day because of the ease of heading back to our room.

UPDATED: I Am Heading To Pixar To Check Out Incredibles 2 + Interview Filmmakers! | #Incredibles2Event #Incredibles2

As you likely know by now, I have a thing for superheroes. They are kind of a major part of my life. So of course, The Incredibles is one of my favorite Pixar movies. I saw it theaters when it came out and when my husband and I honeymooned at Walt Disney World, we were so excited to meet Mr. and Mrs. Incredible. We had not met before this movie came out, but it was a favorite of each of ours before we even met. So when Incredibles 2 was announced a while back, we both starting counting the days until it’s release! Then something really exciting happened – Disney & Pixar invited me to check out Pixar in person, as well as some footage of Incredibles 2! The event takes place April 3rd to the 5th, so be sure to follow along with #Incredibles2Event.
