I have loved everything Disney ever since I was a little girl. For me, the magic never ended. This October I am heading to Disney World for the 15th time and I cannot wait. My husband says that the second we cross under that arch, I turn into a 5 year old again. My eyes tear up and I have the biggest smile on my face. I have no problem waiting in line for hours to meet my favorite characters and I love chatting with them. It truly is the most magical place on Earth for me and I am counting the days (71!!) to take my daughters for their second time. However, I have always wanted to go to Disneyland – to see where Walt walked, to see where it all started – it has just never been in the cards for me. Until now.
When I was in LA for the Inside Out premiere, one of the things that I got to do was attend a taping of Celebrity Family Feud. It was so surreal to walk on to that set and I loved it. The day has finally come and the taping that I attended with 24 other amazing bloggers is airing tonight! I cannot wait to relive my experience there. The episode is sure to be hilarious. I was cracking up the entire time.
I already could not wait to go to D23 next month and then I read about the new collections that the Disney Store will be featuring there. I told myself well I can’t spend too much money because I have to fly back – and then I heard that USPS will be on hand to ship items back to your home for you. Well, guess I will be spending a ton of money there, but hey, that’s OK. I am a collector by nature. I have many different collections and I cannot wait to add to them at D23! Read all about it below.
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!).
