I love watching movies with my daughters. They have recently started getting more in to “real people” movies (as my 4 year old calls them) so that has opened up a whole new world of possibilities. Right now, they have a thing for pirates – toys, TV shows, movies, you name it! That is why I knew that they would love Pirate’s Code: The Adventures of Mickey Matson. As soon as I put this movie in, they tuned in to it. They both watched it all the way through. What a great movie for the entire family! It teaches great morals and is a lot of fun. I was nervous that some parts might be too scary but they weren’t at all. I highly recommend it.
“There is nothing like a Disney Red Carpet.” That is what I was told as we pulled up to the Inside Out red (or should I say purple) carpet premiere at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood. I knew this was going to be an amazingly wonderful once-in-a-lifetime experience but I didn’t know the half of it. I got butterflies as I stepped out on to the purple carpet. I snapped a picture and then put my phone in my wristlet so I could look around and take it all in. I could have stood in that spot the entire night and watched the bustle of the carpet. The paparazzi on one side, behind barriers, yelling stars names hoping for the perfect shot – on the other side, fans hoping to get a selfie with or a wave from their favorite actors. A wave of emotions overcame me (fitting I guess considering the movie) and I felt overwhelmed for just a minute. Then it was time to focus and enjoy my night.
Teen Beach Movie is one of my family’s favorite movies to watch together. My young daughters love dancing and singing along to all of the songs. I was lucky enough to be invited to LA to see Teen Beach 2 before it airs on the Disney Channel (it is also available on DVD the same day – June 26, 2015). I must say that the actors and dancers have really stepped it up this film and my toes were tapping the entire time. If you were impressed with the moves in the first one, you will be blown away by Teen Beach 2. I know I was. One of my favorite dance sequences was during “Gotta Be Me” but little did I know that just a half hour later, I would be learning those moves from two of the stars of the movie – Chrissie Fit “CheeChee” and Jordan Fisher “Seacat”. Watch the clip from Teen Beach 2 below and you will see what I am talking about.
I love movies that I can enjoy with my young daughters. One of our favorite things to do as a family is go to the movies. I just sat down and watched the trailer for Zootopia – the latest Disney Animation project – and we all got extremely excited. This movie looks like it will be hilarious. And since it is from the creators of Frozen and Big Hero 6, we all know it will be a hit! My (almost) 4 year old has already asked me to replay the trailer at least 10 times. Zootopia is “like nothing you’ve seen be-fur” and I cannot wait until it comes out, March 4, 2016!
I love Tom Hanks – I mean, come on, who doesn’t? He is an incredible actor who has been in so many amazing films (Forest Gump, Catch Me If You Can, and BIG just to name a few). So when I heard he was going to be in a new DreamWorks movie, Bridge of Spies, I was thrilled! I saw this trailer at the movies with my husband and we both immediately looked at each other and said yup, it’s a date night movie! Like everything Tom Hanks does, this movie looks incredible – and I cannot wait until October to see it!

Now that my girls are old enough to go to the movies, we take them a lot. It is such a fun family experience and so we try to go at least once a month. We have a list of movies that we plan to go to and we recently added The Good Dinosaur. I can tell, just from watching the minute long trailer, that this is going to be a movie the whole family will enjoy – but honestly, I expect that from Disney/Pixar anyways. They know what it takes to make a movie that everyone will love. This movie is coming out November 25th, 2015 – and you can bet my family will be there opening day!
I may be leaving on a jet plane…but I do know when I am coming back home. I will be in LA from June 7th to June 9th attending some incredible Disney events – the Inside Out movie premiere, hanging with the stars of Teen Beach 2, and talking with the creators of Phineas and Ferb. Twenty-four other awesome bloggers will be joining me on this trip and I cannot wait to share the experience with them! We will be staying at the beautiful Universal Sheraton Hotel. Doesn’t this hotel look amazing? I know it will be a once-in-a-lifetime unbelievable experience – and I cannot wait to share exclusive photos and information with you so be sure to follow me on Instagram and Twitter!
