Giveaway Disney’s Aladdin (Live Action) AND (Animated)

Giveaway Disney’s Aladdin Live Action AND Disney’s Aladdin Animated!

If there is one Disney movie I absolutely love it is Disney’s Aladdin! When I heard it was going to be made into a Live Action movie I kind of just shrugged it off and figured it would never live up to the original animated Aladdin. I was SO wrong! Our family of five packed into the theater opening night with a handful of doubts, yet we had to see it on the big screen. As soon as the movie began I knew I was completely off the mark and that it was going to be incredible. I can say with all honesty that I loved the live action Aladdin movie. It lived up for me in every single way. So now that it’s heading to the blu ray release there is only one thing to do, we will be watching Aladdin again and again! The live action as well as the original animated are both up there in my top Disney movies. Thanks for getting this one right, Disney! 

So here is the great news! Now you can own BOTH movies on bluray! They will both release on September 10th, 2019. We have partnered with Disney Pictures to have one lucky winner win BOTH the Live and Animated version! Enter on the rafflecopter below. Giveaway ends September 10th at 11:59pm. Winner contacted soonafter. (USA/18+).

Embark on a magic carpet ride with the entire family when Disney’s original animated classic “Aladdin” soars into the highly celebrated Walt Disney Signature Collection, granting nonstop laughs, action-packed adventure and Academy Award®–winning music (1992: Best Music, Original Song, “A Whole New World,” Original Score) for the first time in 4K Ultra HD. The Signature Collection Edition of “Aladdin” takes flight two weeks early in 4K Ultra HD, Digital in HD and Movies Anywhere now and lands on 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Sept. 10 — with a brand-new sing-along version; all-new bonus features, including original cast recordings; and classic bonus material. The arrival coincides with the in-home release of 2019’s live-action film adaptation “Aladdin,” granting fans everywhere the opportunity to own both magical movies.  The Signature Collection Edition invites every member of the family to join Genie, Aladdin and Jasmine to belt out the unforgettable songs from “Aladdin” — such as “A Whole New World,” “Friend Like Me” and “Prince Ali” — through a new sing-along version. Other fresh features include a walk down memory lane with Scott Weinger (speaking voice of Aladdin) as he reflects on his personal journey portraying the diamond in the rough and meeting with the original cast and filmmakers, and one jump into the recording booth during the original recording sessions. Digital exclusive features legendary animator Eric Goldberg reminiscing about drawing Genie. Also included are hours of classic bonus gems, from hilarious outtakes with the legendary Robin Williams (voice of Genie) to an in-depth discussion with directors John Musker and Ron Clements.

Disney’s tale of the lovable “street rat,” Aladdin, self determined Princess Jasmine and the all-powerful Genie has remained a family favorite for over a quarter of a century. It all began with the animated classic “Aladdin,” the highest-grossing film of 1992 and a two-time Academy Award®–winner, and continued with the hit Broadway musical “Aladdin” and 2019’s live-action film adaptation “Aladdin,” directed by Guy Ritchie and starring Will Smith as Genie, Mena Massoud as Aladdin and Naomi Scott as Jasmine.  Families can decide how, when and where they wish to enjoy “Aladdin” in their households. The film arrives two weeks early on Digital 4K Ultra HD and HD with an exclusive extra — and a Digital bundle doubles the fun with both the Walt Disney Signature Collection Edition and this year’s thrilling, live-action adventure “Aladdin.” A physical copy of the film will be released as a 4K Ultra HD (4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and Digital Code) and a Multi-Screen Edition (Blu-ray and Digital Code).

Dorney Park Is Always The Right Choice!

Dorney Park Is Always The Right Choice!

Theme parks are a BIG subject in this house. We love coasters and we just love being out for the day with a million ride choices, food and fun. When we think back on one of our best days of summer we automatically think of Dorney Park and Wild Water Kingdom in Allentown, Pa. It’s under a two hour ride from the NYC area so that makes it an easy day trip, although there have been a few times we have opted to stay over and make a weekend out of it.

Dorney Park is a summer staple in this family. Come to think of it, it is also a Halloween Haunt staple, too! But we will get to that in  another post. First of all, I just love Dorney Park because the water park is inside of the theme park. That makes my life so much easier! Our family could spend a full day enjoying Wildwater Kingdom itself, but we always try to stay there until about mid afternoon and then head to Dorney Park until closing. It is VERY easy to spend the entire day at Dorney Park and Wildwater Kingdom so I would recommend arriving as early as possible. Our family generally arrives before the gates open so we can be in the first group let into Wildwater Kingdom because it does tend to get very crowded. If you want to find a place to sit it’s a good idea to get there as early as you can. There are also cabanas available for rental.

When it comes to Wildwater Kingdom my personal favorite is the Runaway River Lazy River. It’s a lazy river with a twist of fun. As for my daredevil kids, they run off and ride the Aqua Racer and the Constrictor! If you want to find me, I’ll be in the wave pool! There is so much to do, something for everyone.

If you are not the waterpark type then you can head directly into Dorney Park. If you love coasters you definitely have come to the right theme park. There are plenty of choices. Our family favorites when it comes to coasters are Hydra and Talon but I’m happy to say that Dorney Park is the home to seven adrenaline rushing roller coastersIn addition to coasters you can find so many fun things to do. Kids of all ages can enjoy Dorney Park. There are children’s ride throughout the park but our favorite place for the littles is Planet Snoopy where you can find Snoopy and friends themed rides and even meet Snoopy and his friends! There’s also a new show, Space Beagle! There is also a grand array of Snoopy souvenirs! So if you are a Snoopy fan, you need to stop by and grab a stuffed Snoopy, tee, or mug!

Our family enjoyed the refillable mug with free refills the day of purchase! It’s a total perk and good in both Dorney Park and Whitewater Kingdom. As for food choices, Dorney has you covered! They have a dine all day plan! For one price you can you dine every ninety minutes throughout the park. No one leaves Dorney Park hungry! They even include one bonus dessert! Our family chose Cinnabon!

There is something magical about staying at Dorney Park into the darkness. I just love all the lights of the rides and the sounds and music. It’s all so exciting and so much fun! So if you are looking for an awesome day trip to take with your family and friends look no farther than Dorney Park! You will not be disappointed. If you want to make your ride wait even faster there is a choice, it’s called Fast Lane! It’s a bracelet that you get and a special entrance to most high line rides. There are few Fast Lane choices. They even include some waterpark attractions! Having Fast Lane during our last visit was a dream come true! It allowed our family to bypass the lines on so many of the attractions. It allowed us to ride more than usual and we absolutely loved it! Dorney Park and Whitewater Kingdom is always the right choice!

In addition to all of the fun we had this year, there is more to come in 2020 with the brand new addition of Seaside Splashworks

Special thanks to Dorney Park and Whitewater Kingdom for the amazing time! Family media passes, drink all day cups, all day dining vouchers, parking and Fast Lane passes provided by Dorney Park.

What’s the movie all about? Hilarious, outgoing and always up for a good time, New Yorker Brittany Forgler is everybody’s best friend ― except maybe her own. At 27, her hard-partying ways, chronic underemployment and toxic relationships are catching up with her, but when she stops by a new doctor’s office to try to score some Adderall, she gets slapped with a prescription she never wanted: Get healthy. Too broke for a gym and too proud to ask for help, Brit is at a loss, until her seemingly together neighbor Catherine pushes her to lace up her Converse sneakers and run one sweaty block. The next day, she runs two. And soon, after finishing her first mile, she sets an almost unthinkable goal: running in the New York City Marathon.

Starring: Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street, “Workaholics”), Michaela Watkins (“Casual,” “Trophy Wife”), Tony Award nominee Micah Stock (“Escape at Dannemora,” “Bonding”), Utkarsh Ambudkar (Pitch Perfect, “The Mindy Project”), Alice Lee (“Take Two,” Sierra Burgess Is a Loser) and Lil Rel Howery (Get OutBird Box).

Nintendo Switch Back To School Event NYC!

Nintendo Switch Back To School Event NYC

Everyone around the NYC area is gearing up for back to school. Every store you walk into has school supplies from ceiling to floor. But for us, back to school means we are hanging out with Mario at the Nintendo Store NYC and talking Nintendo Switch games and family fun.

Recently our family was invited to a private event at Nintendo Store NYC where we were treated to a morning of fun that would make any gamer smile from ear to ear! Super Mario Maker 2 for Nintendo Switch was the game of day and we were taught about the Nintendo Switch app where parents can set Parental Limits on their children’s game time. You can set it up to shut off  the Switch at a certain time, set it for game time of an hour or two or even use it as a reward system when school begins! Sounds good to me, Mario! We are definitely going to test it out around here.

As for the kids, they were more concerned with some awesome Nintendo DIY pencil box crafts and of course gaming! Emm and Adam were among the gamers who spent their morning watching demos on the big screen and sampling gameplay on monitors. What a great morning. I mean, what could be better than gaming with Mario in the house!?! In addition everyone left a little better prepared for the school year with a brand new Nintendo themed backpack filled with goodies! Thank you Nintendo. GAME ON!!
