I don’t know about you, but I get overwhelmed each holiday season. Having two little girls to shop for can be difficult because there are so many toys out there to choose from. This list contains items that my daughters (and my husband and I!) love. We feel these will make great holiday gifts this year. Each item on this guide was personally tested and/or approved by Mama’s Geeky or her children. This guide may contain affiliate links.
I am a big fan of music and award shows, so naturally I love the Radio Disney Music Awards! Well the 5th annual show is finally here and will be airing on Radio Disney and the Disney Channel this Sunday, April 30th. Be sure to tune in because I know of a few surprises they have in store for everyone – and you don’t want to miss them! With more performances than ever, the fifth anniversary show will have something that everyone in the family can enjoy.
While in LA for the Captain America Event, one of the things we got to do was be the first group to screen The Disney Channel’s upcoming original movie The Adventures in Babysitting. This film is actually Disney’s 100th Original Movie (has it been that many already?). It was inspired by the popular 1980s movie of the same name but it is “twice the babysitters, twice the fun.” It stars Sabrina Carpenter (of Disney Channel’s hit comedy series “Girl Meets World”) and Sofia Carson (of the hit Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants”).
The other night I was just hanging out on the couch with my husband when my phone got an email notification. I opened it up and just about dropped my phone. Was I reading it right? I was invited to go screen Marvel’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR before it opens in theaters AND attend a press junket where I will be interviewing talent from the film!?! If you know me, than you know how much I love everything Marvel (my Twitter handle is MarvelGoddess24 because of my love for the comics and movies). I have been reading the comics for more years than I can count, and have been loving all of the films over the last several years. After I did a dance around the living room and my husband assured me that we would find a way for me to go, I teared up. I am not ashamed to admit it guys, this is HUGE for me. It totally validates the time I take to run my site, and let’s me know that Disney appreciates me (they are pretty amazing). I don’t have all the details yet, but here is what I do know.
This month I teamed up with Apple Music and Disney Music Group to create a super fun Family Dance Party Playlist! My girls and I are huge Disney fans and we have spent many hours dancing around the house singing our favorite Disney songs. Some of these songs date back to when I was a little girl – and some of them are brand new hits from movies like Cars 3 and Descendants 2!
It is finally almost here guys, the best time of year. When the flowers start to bloom and it becomes FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! This day is always the first Saturday of May and I get excited for it every year. Just head to your local comic book shop and grab yourself a stack of free comics! If you are already a comic book reader, or thinking about starting to read them, this is the day for you!
While in LA this past April I was lucky enough to screen Disney’s 100th Original Movie – Adventures In Babysitting. I loved the original from the 1980’s, which this movie is based off of, so I was really excited to be one of the first to see it. I must say, I really enjoyed it! There was a lot of laughing, a lot of nail biting action, and even a few heart warming moments. I do not want to give anything away but I will say be sure to tune in when it airs on The Disney Channel on June 24th. That just so happens to be my daughter’s 5th birthday and she is a HUGE Evie fan (Sofia Carson’s character in Descendants) so I know we will be tuning in. What a great birthday present for her!
