Giveaway Medieval Times And Summer- Perfect Together!

Medieval Times and Summer- A Perfect Pair! Giveaway- Win A Family Four Pack of Tickets

I’m sure by this point you already know what huge Medieval Times fans we are. Our family has been going to Medieval Times forever and I’m pretty sure that will not stop any time soon. Recently we were invited to  a special event at the NJ Castle in Lyndhurst, NJ. For this event we had to arrive super early. We were excited to get a one on one interview with all of the knights who spend their days and nights jousting. Of course my daughter asked if there were any female knights, which to my surprise there were not. Maybe she will be the first. I mean, with two big brothers anything is possible, right?!

If you have ever been to any of the Medieval Times locations throughout the world, ( the first one was actually built in Spain) you know that the main show takes place on the center sand. Well, our family was invited onto the SAND! Honestly, I have always wanted to walk down there on the sand. That’s where all the action takes place, where all the grand horses are and where the knights fight. It definitely lived up! We were escorted to the sand by ALL of the knights for a lesson in how to use weapons. By the way, that clanking that you hear during the show from weapon hitting weapon is REAL! Some of those weapons are extremely heavy. We were given step by step instructions on different moves. It really put everyone in the right mood to sit down and watch the battle begin!

On that note, when you do attend Medieval Times I think this might be a huge tip. Always find out what time the doors open for your show. They usually open about an hour ahead of time. You should shoot to arrive at that time if you can. There is always a mini welcome where the Queen and company exit the doors of the castle and welcome everyone in. It’s a perfect way to start your visit to Medieval Times and even touts a trumpeter! Once inside, I always view the lobby as part of the experience. There is a picture taking opp. Please don’t ask me about the pictures! We have SO many. I ALWAYS buy the picture of our family or family and friends when we attend the show. (Some of the VIP packages even include the picture). There are bars with an array of drink choices and souvenir stands that will not break the bank. There is also the Torture Chamber if you are up for some medieval fun. It may not be good for young children, but it sure is interesting for the rest of us.


When you do enter the castle your group will be given a colored crown. For our family it was yellow this show. The color of your crown will match up the section of the castle you will be seated in and the also the color of your knight so you know who to cheer for! Our family was super excited to sit in the first row of seating up against the arena. That was a FIRST for us! It definitely was an incredible view! Wow!

As for the actual show you can definitely expect a lot of excitement. Once the Queen greets everyone the games will begin and you can cheer for your favorite knight! If you knight wins the match you may just receive a flower from him. Somehow Emm always ends up with the knight’s flower. As the games begin so does the feast! Remember, you have been transported back to medieval times SO there is no silverware included. The soup bowl has a handle and the rest you just use your fingers to dig in with! The food is delicious and even includes dessert.

On the night we visited the castle, our Yellow Knight WON the tournament! We hardly every get into the winning section SO this was a biggie for us! Maybe it was that our section was going crazy cheering, “Yellow Knight! Yellow, Knight!”. And just when the show is over and you think it’s time to leave there is still more left to do. After the show ends you can meet all of the knights and the Queen in the lobby for picture opps or just to say hello! What I love most about the entire experience is that you are just somehow magically transported out of your daily routine and life and into an entire different world that only exists within the castle walls! For the time inside you won’t even remember that the rest of the world exists! There is nowhere in the world like Medieval Times! Have you ever been to a show?

Giveaway Cinderella 70th Anniversary Now Available on Bluray/DVD/HDdigital

GIVEAWAY- Cinderella 70th Anniversary- Now Available on Bluray/DVD/HDdigital

It’s hard to believe that Disney’s Cinderella has been around for seventy years. Although when you think of the beauty of Cinderella and the magic of the movie it’s not hard to see why generations of Disney fans have come to love the movie and watch it again and again. As a child I can remember my mom telling me stories of how much she loved Cinderella. She passed that love onto me and now my own daughter loves the movie as well.

Our family has been celebrating the release of Cinderella with some amazing and magical Disney fun in NYC! Recently we were invited by Disney Animation to attended a sewing class  where Emm and I tested out our sewing machine skills to make our own Cinderella skirts! The The New York Sewing Center helped us to feel like the little mice in the movie that created a beautiful piece. It was quite an experience to take a piece of fabric and learn how to transform it into our very own skirt! Thanks for including us, Disney. You sure know how to put us into the mood.

We were also invited by Disney Animation the official Alvin Aliey American Dance Theater!! Someone pinch me! There’s a building I never thought I would see the inside of, but I was wrong! My daughter along with an intimate group of blogger kids were taught a dance routine step by step to dance to the song, Once Upon a Dream. I really had to hold back the tears. What a lucky little group of children to be in the company of such a dancing expert. The kids did a wonderful job and even preformed to the audience of friends and family. For Emm, it was a dream come true! As for me, watching her dance to the music of Cinderella had me fighting back the tears.

You see, Cinderella is more that just a princess movie, it’s a connector of life and families and generations. It’s little girls and their moms and their grandmas. It’s princess stories and trying on glass slippers and ballroom dancing and dancing in the mirror and wishing and hoping. And even though we teach our little girls to be strong and confident, we can also teach them to be princesses. There’s a whole other meaning now a days because being a princess means being yourself and being kind to others…

The enchanting tale, which showed us that dreams really do come true — and inspired countless fans to reenact the Royal Ball and Cinderella’s infamous midnight dash — arrives home Digitally in HD and Movies Anywhere  and on Blu-ray™ and DVD

The Anniversary Edition of “Cinderella” offers two all-new extras: “Cinderella” trivia and fun facts, hosted by Ruth Righi and Ava Kolker from Disney Channel’s “Sydney to the Max,” and “In Walt’s Words: Enhanced Edition,” a special edition of “Cinderella” featuring fascinating production details, original storyboards, archival photos, thumbnail sketches and transcripts throughout the feature film. Hours of classic bonus material celebrates the masterful animation, memorable music and long-lasting impact of “Cinderella,” showcasing Walt Disney’s core group of animators, the art of Disney Legend Mary Blair, the original demo recording of the film’s title song and Cinderella’s iconic glass slipper.

Recently added to the prestigious National Film Registry, the animated classic centers on kind and hardworking Cinderella, who is ordered around by her cruel stepmother, her awful stepsisters — even the big clock in the church tower tells her when to start another day of drudgery. But they can’t stop her from dreaming, and Cinderella has faith that someday her wishes will come true. When an invitation to the royal ball arrives, Cinderella is sure her time has come — until her stepsisters, with the encouragement of Lady Tremaine, tear her gown to shreds. Just when Cinderella believes all is lost, her Fairy Godmother appears, and with a wave of her wand and “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo,” transforms an ordinary pumpkin into a magnificent coach and Cinderella’s rags into a gorgeous gown, then sends her off to the Royal Ball. But Cinderella’s enchanted evening must end when the spell is broken at midnight. It will take the help of her daring animal mice friends and a perfect fit into a glass slipper to create the ultimate fairy tale ending.

“Cinderella” is the ninth title to join the Walt Disney Signature Collection, which includes groundbreaking films created or inspired by the imagination and legacy of Walt Disney, featuring timeless stories and characters that have touched generations.
