Singing? Dancing? Fun in the sun?... Yea! Our take on Teen Beach 2! #‎TeenBeach2‬event


 ****Disney provided an all-expense paid trip for me to cover this great event ****

We are back with another adventure with our favorite pals Brady and Mack in Disney’s Teen Beach 2! Summer is over and it is back to real life for these two… Will they change from the care free lifestyle for a more regimented school life work for these two? With the arrival of the bikers and surfers from the classic Wet Side Story in present time Brady and Mack will have a lot on their plate this school season!
What is going to happen, will the characters from Wet Side Story make it in today’s world? Or will they want to go back to Wet Side Story? Can they go back?? Well you are just going to have to watch the movie to find out, I am not going to spoil it for you. This movie was great I really enjoyed it, it just flew by and before I knew it the credits were rolling. What I enjoyed most of all was the great messages of the story….. The two female leads Mack, and Lela were strong female characters, who were not about to let anyone tell them what to do. They showed that with a strong friendship and a belief in yourself anything is possible. 
The characters in Teen Beach 2 encourage kids to believe in themselves, and never give up! There is no harsh language or anything inappropriate, with a rating of TV G it is appropriate for all ages. Teen Beach 2 is filled with the dancing you love and some great new songs that you will be singing over and over. Families can enjoy learning the dance numbers and singing along together with the fun of Teen Beach 2. 
            
My daughter just loves to dance along, and I like to join in too, it's not as fluid as it is in the movie but we certainly give it our all and have a blast doing it! The costumes are bright and colorful and really put you in a 60’s mood. Overall we loved the movie, and will be watching it again and again.
I have a soft spot for my two favorites in the cast CheeChee and Seacat, they really get to show off their talents singing it out together in Falling For Ya. Check out my interview with Teen Beach 2 stars Chrissie Fit and Jordan Fisher. It is fun to see all of the intense and well-choreographed dance scenes in Teen Beach 2, when you pick up the DVD on June 26th there are some great extras, you can see for yourself all of the practice that goes into these routines.
I know firsthand it is not easy learning a few steps dancing to Gotta Be Me with Chrissie Fit and Jordan Fisher was tough, and I am pretty sure they were taking it super easy on us! Did you ever wonder…  How is it dancing on a beach? How can you make it through the hours and hours of rehearsals? Well you can find out in the extra: exclusive cast dance rehearsals on the DVD.
Dive in and rock out with the hottest surf sequel under the sun! Now that summer ‘s over and school has begun, Brady (Ross Lynch) and Mack’s (Maia Mitchell) relationship seems headed for a wipeout – until Lela, Tanner and the “Wet Side Story” kids show up! Dazzled by the novelty and variety of the modern world, Lela wants to stay, but the real world and the “reel” world just don’t mix. Can Mack and Brady find the magic to get the kids home and get their own romance back on track before it’s too late? Packed with electrifying song & dance numbers and hilarious fish-out-of-water wackiness, Teen Beach 2 is “wow-abunga” fun for everyone.
           
Bonus Features:  Exclusive: Cast Dance Rehearsals  - Exciting new contemporary and retro music with dance numbers choreographed by Christopher Scott. Join Ross Lynch, Maia Mitchell and the rest of cast as they learn some of the crazy steps for the movie.  See how they put the moves into the songs Best Summer Ever, Gotta Be Me, Falling For Ya, and That’s How We Do. Ratings:  TV-G (US); G (Canada).
If you are looking for a family friendly movie, that has  great messages, believe in yourself, follow your destiny and be there for your friends. From the youngest little ones to the tweens this is a great film that will appeal to everyone. Be sure to pick up Teen Beach 2 I am sure you will love it as much as my family and I do.

How to See Rome with Your Kids




Italy is a great choice for a family vacation because it provides the perfect balance between historic and artistic sites like museums and galleries, and interactive activities like tours and self-guided city explorations, as of which will fascinate the whole family. A major capital like Rome can be a daunting task to venture with kids, but if you plan it correctly your holidays to Rome can be equally fun for the whole family. Here are some of the main things to keep in mind.

1. Avoid lines and overly large crowds
In a tourist town it might sound impossible to avoid waiting to buy tickets to major sites, but by booking in advance and using a RomaPass you can skip many of the long lines to sites like the Colosseum and the Vatican. Look for tickets at less used entrances, such as the Forum or Palatine entrances at the Colosseum. For the Vatican you will have to pay a 4 Euro fee per person for advanced bookings, but it is well worth it as kids detest the waits.

Check out the fun featurette from Disney Pixar's Inside Out #Insideoutevent #InsideOut

Ever wonder what goes into making a Pixar animated movie? Meet the voices inside your head with Disney Pixar's Inside Out, in theaters now! Check out the great featurette for the cast of Inside Out explaining what goes into voicing a animated movie, it is hilarious!
            
Do you ever look at someone and wonder what is going on inside their head? Disney•Pixar’s original new film “Inside Out” ventures inside the mind to find out.
Based in Headquarters, the control center inside 11-year-old Riley’s mind, five Emotions are hard at work, led by lighthearted optimist Joy (voice of Amy Poehler), whose mission is to make sure Riley stays happy. Fear (voice of Bill Hader) heads up safety, Anger (voice of Lewis Black) ensures all is fair and Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) prevents Riley from getting poisoned—both physically and socially. Sadness (voice of Phyllis Smith) isn’t exactly sure what her role is, and frankly, neither is anyone else.  
When Riley's family relocates to a scary new city, the Emotions are on the job, eager to help guide her through the difficult transition. But when Joy and Sadness are inadvertently swept into the far reaches of Riley’s mind—taking some of her core memories with them—Fear, Anger and Disgust are left reluctantly in charge. Joy and Sadness must venture through unfamiliar places—Long Term Memory, Imagination Land, Abstract Thought and Dream Productions—in a desperate effort to get back to Headquarters, and Riley.
Directed by Academy Award® winner Pete Docter ("Monsters, Inc.", "Up"), produced by Jonas Rivera, p.g.a. ("Up") and featuring an original score by Michael Giacchino ("The Incredibles," "Ratatouille," "Up").

Game On! The Disney Infinity population just increased and got a little more emotional! #‎InsideOutEvent

****Disney provided an all-expense paid trip for me to cover this great event **** 

Coming Infinity 3.0 this fall is something both my husband and daughter are looking forward to Disney Infinity 3.0. My husband (and daughter) is really looking forward to the Star Wars aspect and my daughter can’t wait to get a chance to play with Riley’s emotions from Pixar’s newest movie Inside Out. I’m not much of a gamer, I try but I’m not all the good and it frustrates my daughter because I can’t keep up. But the thing I do love is looking at all the Infinity figures my daughter has lined up on her dresser.
These figures are so well made and if you didn’t know they belonged to a video game you’d just assume that they’re a nice collectible. And this coming Fall she’ll have some new figures to add to her ever growing collection.

If Star Wars is your thing you’ll get to add Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Boba Fett, Wicket the Ewok, Yoda and many other characters you’ll easily recognize to the game. Also you’ll be able to add Joy, Anger, Sadness, Fear and Disgust from Pixar’s Inside Out. With Infinity 3.0 one of the best things is it is all compatible with the older games, so all the figures you have already will work with the new game and you’ll be able to have some interesting team-ups!
With 50 new characters to add to the mix your playtime and replay value is endless. The toy box game and open world aspect you’re used to will be there but there is so much more that you’ll be able to do like eventually you’ll be able to race the characters in a Mario Kart style game (I know my daughter is really excited about this aspect.)

And with regard to Inside Out playset this isn’t a rehash of the movie, it works almost like a sequel to the movie. Riley is still the main character but this time she’s a babysitter who falls asleep and accidentally lands on the remote and changes the channel to a scary movie and thus putting her emotions to work to help calm the situation down. I love the idea of a totally new idea and not just something that you’ve seen already.
All the emotions have special powers to help them make it through the game: Anger uses his fists of rage to smash things, Joy has a ray of lighthearted, optimistic sunshine that brings cheer to every adventure, Fear uses his nervous waves to clear the way of obstacles, Disgust uses her sass to send waves of emotions with feisty confidence and Sadness turns waves of sadness into melodramatic fun all while trying to remain positive. I can’t wait to try it, I’ll be awful at it but I’ll try it….then I’ll quit and watch my daughter play the game correctly and actually enjoy it without getting frustrated like I do!
So if you are looking for a great family fun game be sure to pick up a Pixar, Inside Out, Disney Infinity play set 3.0. Disney Infinity 3.0 Edition: Inside Out Play Set, coming Fall 2015. You can pre-order Disney Infinity 3.0 now.
