Peppa Pig: Sandcastles launched TODAY on iTunes from Entertainment One and so of course, my daughters and I had to check it out. They love Peppa Pig (and I must admit that my husband and I do too). We all crack up during the opening when Papa Pig snorts – every time. This is a family favorite of ours and I am so excited to tell you guys all about these episodes. And guess what, I even have a chance for you to win Peppa Pig: Sandcastles on iTunes thanks to eOne! I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak at a few of these episodes last week and have watched them time and time again since then. My daughters say they are their favorite Peppa Pig episodes now!

Fans can meet their favorite ABC Family stars and collect exclusive pin sets at D23 EXPO 2015, the ultimate Disney fan event, August 14-16 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. I am so excited to go to D23 next month and this makes me even more excited! I love ABC TV! ABC Family will give away exclusive pin sets each day at the Disney | ABC TV Pavilion booth, from their much anticipated new series “Shadowhunters” on Friday, August 14, from the network’s hit series “Pretty Little Liars” on Saturday, August 15 and from the network’s annual event 25 Days of Christmas on Sunday, August 16.

As you may or may not know by now, I am heading to the D23 Expo next month with 24 other amazing bloggers! I could not be more excited! This is a dream come true for me as a Disney fanatic and Marvel Comics/Star Wars FanGirl! I was just informed of some pretty amazing Q&A and Autograph Sessions that ABC Television Network will be holding at the expo. Now remember, this expo is open to the public – that means that you can go! Tickets are very reasonable and can be purchased here. If you live in or will be in the Anaheim, CA area August 14 – 16 then you should totally go. Hey, maybe I will see you there!

I hope you tuned in to the Disney Channel watch Teen Beach 2 on Friday. It is an incredible movie with amazing values. I really enjoyed watching it when I went to LA (I even teared up a few times), and I enjoyed sharing it with my family last week even more. My husband, who “liked” the first one, was glued to the screen for the second one. He kept asking me what was going to happen – and of course, I kept my mouth shut and made him watch. He was pretty vocal about certain parts (don’t worry I won’t give anything away, but if you have seen the movie I bet you know what I am talking about – hint: surprise ending).

Teen Beach 2 is a great movie to watch with friends and family. There is singing and elaborate dancing – it is so much fun. I think the best way to watch it when it airs this Friday (June 26th) would be to have some friends and family over and have a Summer “beach” party!  I am talking beach activities, food, and of course, enough room to get up and try to dance along! I know that I plan to have a few people over and will be throwing a beach blast of my own! It really is the best way to experience Teen Beach 2 – even if you haven’t seen the first one (although, you still have time!).

My daughters LOVE My Little Pony. I mean, they are beyond obsessed with this show. We have more ponies than I can count in this house and my daughter’s 4th birthday party (which is going to be this weekend) is My Little Pony themed. They know everything about all of the ponies – their cutie marks included. I wish I had recorded their reaction when I gave them this My Little Ponies: Cutie Mark Quests DVD (although the photos capture it well) because they flipped out. I had to open it up and put it on IMMEDIATELY or there were going to be some fits thrown. They loved watching a few of their favorite episodes (and of course loved the bonus sing along as well). I must admit, I am a fan of My Little Pony as well. It is a great family show and I highly recommend it!

While in LA recently, I was lucky enough to sit down and chat with Chrissie Fit and Jordan Fisher from Teen Beach 2. They play CheeChee and Seacat in the movie, and provide a lot of the comic relief in it. As you know, I also took a dance lesson from them (read about that here) but one of my favorite parts of that day was talking with Chrissie and Jordan. They are both so down to Earth and fun to be around – I felt like I was hanging out with a couple of good friends. I had just seen Teen Beach 2 so it was interesting to talk with them about it. There were a lot of good questions from my fellow bloggers – and I even got to ask one as well. Below is a video of Jordan & Chrissie answering the question “What kind of advice [do] you have for an aspiring Musician, Artist, Dancer?”
