10 Fun Facts About Disney Junior’s New Show, Fancy Nancy! | #FancyNancyEvent

I remember when my daughters got their first Fancy Nancy book. It was a Halloween one and we must have read it at least ten times that night. They were immediately hooked on her and honestly, I can’t blame them. She is fun and spunky, just like they are. Not to mention her incredible sense of fashion! So when I heard that Disney Junior was going to have a Fancy Nancy show, I knew we would be tuning in for every episode! While in LA recently, I was lucky enough to watch two episodes as well as chat with Executive Producer/Director Jamie Mitchell and Story Editor Krista Tucker. Here are 10 fun facts about Disney Junior’s Fancy Nancy that I learned from this interview.

How To Throw The Ultimate Big Hero 6 The Series Party | #BigHero6

The first movie my family ever saw in theaters together was Big Hero 6. Our youngest daughter was pretty young (just under 2) but she was mesmerized by Baymax. I knew right then that we had a little Disney fan on our hands! This quickly became one of the most played movies in our house, so when the animated series was announced a while back, we were all excited! Big Hero 6 The Series is so much fun – for the whole family! And now that the series has been released on DVD, we decided to throw the ultimate viewing party!

10 Things I Learned About John Ratzenberger at Niagara Falls Comic Con | #Pixar #NFCC

While at Niagara Falls Comic Con this year, I was able to attend a panel with the one and only John Ratzenberger! Not did he play Cliff, one of my favorite characters on Cheers, he also voices many characters for Disney/Pixar. If you know anything about me, you know how much I love Disney and Pixar films, so this was a great experience. At the panel, I learned so much from him and about him.

Incredibles 2: Powering the Hero Within with Delicious #Incredibles2 Recipes From Dole! | #DoleHero #DoleFamily

As you probably know by now, I have two young daughters. About a year ago, my husband and I decided it was time to get healthy. We wanted to be around for our daughters long into their lives. We cut out a lot of sweets and bad for you foods, and focused on healthy eating in our home. Because of this, we often purchase DOLE® fruits – which my girls love. They especially enjoy often seeing their favorite characters featured on the packaging (and yes, they keep those stickers as long as they can). This summer, DOLE® is teaming up with Pixar for an INCREDIBLE summer – “Powering The Hero Within” featuring Incredibles 2, a movie we can’t wait to see!

3 Things Incredibles 2 Taught Me About Parenting | #Incredibles2 #Incredibles2Event

My family and I went to see Incredibles 2 this weekend. To say that Jack-Jack stole the show is probably an understatement. Don’t get me wrong, we loved the whole movie. The plot is great, a little bit predictable but that is to be expected. We all loved seeing the movie pick right back up where it left off 14 years ago. My daughters loved the introductions of some new Supers, and we all thought the action was fantastic. But as a mom, well, I learned a few things about parenting I needed to from the Parr family.

Creating & Refining All of Baby Jack-Jack’s New Powers in Incredibles 2! | #Incredibles2Event #Incredibles2

I love Jack-Jack Parr – who doesn’t?! He is the cutest super hero baby with some pretty amazing powers. Speaking of his powers, we got a glimpse into them in the first Incredibles movie, and a little bit in the Incredibles 2 trailers. While at Pixar Studios in April, I got an in depth look at his new powers and how the animation team created them. So much work goes into creating things like this, you would have no idea. We must have watched twenty tests to see how his powers would come across on screen, and I am sure that was not all of them.

The latest Pixar short, Bao, is adorable, entertaining, and shocking. Yes, shocking. Once you see it, you will know what I mean.

She is actually the first female director for a Pixar short – talk about impressive.

Disney’s Dumbo (2019) Teaser Trailer is Here and IT IS EVERYTHING! (Plus My Reaction Video!) | #DUMBO

One of my favorite movies growing up was Dumbo. I must have watched it a thousand times. In fact, my young daughters have even seen it a few times (and they love it too). I just adore the moral and story behind it. So when I heard Disney was doing a reimagining I was thrilled. Then I heard one of my favorite directors, Tim Burton, was at the helm and I could barely contain my excitement. Well, this morning the official teaser trailer dropped and it is everything. I could not have asked for more (but really, give me more!!).
