In our house Tinker Bell is a daily word. We talk about her when we play, watch tv, and color. She has been one of my daughter’s favorites  since before she could even walk and quite honestly, Tinker Bell has always been a favorite of mine. Every time a new movie is about to come out I cannot help but get this little internal pang of excitement. My daughter is jumping for joy at the thought and speculation about the new movie and I cannot wait either. If you have a Tinkerbell fan in your house, you will definitely want this to add to your collection.

But this creature is not welcome in Pixie Hollow — and the scout fairies are determined to capture the mysterious beast, who they fear will destroy their home. Fawn must convince her fairy friends to risk everything to rescue the NeverBeast. This thrilling action-adventure roars to life with never-before-seen bonus extras on Disney Blu-ray.

Giveaway: Big Hero 6 Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD Hits Shelves Feb. 24th


Love Disney movies? Our family has a huge collection of Disney films. Of course we have all the oldies, but I feel it’s just as important to make the new movies a part of our collection, too. We celebrate weekly with family movie night and most times Disney is the choice. Of course my daughter thinks a Disney movie a day is just what the doctor ordered, so we do spend most nights catching at least half a movie and watching half the next night. You can’t go wrong with a Disney movie in the blu-ray player.

Ten Tips On Hosting Your Disney Side Home Celebration

Ten Tips On Hosting Your Disney Side Home Celebration

disneysidehome  disneysidehome2

This year our family was chosen to host a Disney Side Home Celebration for the second year. Such an exciting moment when that pixie dusted email arrives telling you that you have been chosen by Disney Parks to be a part of the fun. Now, you don’t have to be chosen in order to host a Disney Side Home Celebration. Honestly, we have been hosting them for years without the official name. A Disney Side Home Celebration is just inviting friends over and hosting a Disney themed party. Everyone has a Disney Side, what’s yours?

This year we are still trying to come up with a theme. We have it narrowed down and will announce it very soon when are invitations are ready. In the meantime, if you are looking for some tips on hosting a Disney Side Home Celebration we are here for you. We came up with ten tips on hosting your own party.

Tip 1: Choose a theme for your party. Some people were given a theme, others were not. If you do not have a preselected theme, it’s up to your family to come up with one. You can always choose one of the preselected ones for yourself or think of something original. Last year our theme was Hidden Mickey. It was a great theme and easy to feature at the party. You are welcome to try it if you still haven’t chosen.

Tip 2: Choose a date and send out invitations. Set the size of your party according to what is comfortable for you. Although it says home celebration, some people last year chose to have their party at a school, bowling alley, scout meetup, etc. We will be hosting ours at home again this year. By the way, your invites can be online or hard copy. It’s all up to you.

Tip 3: Do the Disney Side Happy Dance! You were chosen. Don’t stress about what was in your celebration package. There is no comparing if you are showing your true Disney Side. It’s about having fun and being happy. So just accept and enjoy!

Tip 4: Don’t forget about the music! What’s a Disney Side Home Celebration without music? Last year we created a play list on for free with over 200 Disney songs. It was awesome and kept the party going with tunes that everyone knew and some that they have not heard in a long time. Of course you can use your own music. I’m sure you already have some playlists created since your love Disney!

Tip 5: Decide if you will play games at your party. If you decide on games be sure you have the room and all your ducks in order. Check that all the game pieces are there. Check that the directions are clear. Check that everyone will have fun with the games you have chosen.

Tip 6: Photo Booths are awesome and easy to make. Be sure to do them in advance. Any box can easy be cut up into a photo booth. Check out some awesome Photo Booth ideas on my Pinterest board:

Tip 7: Decide what treats will be served at your party. Check with party guests ahead of time for any special dietary concerns. Create some Disney themed names for the foods depending on your party theme. Example: Snow White’s Non-poisonous apples, Tink’s Pixie Dusted Cookies.

Tip 8: Decorate your party area with home made decorations. Kids love to decorate and really get into it. Last year we made Mickey paper chains, paper flowers , hidden Mickey’s for around the house and more. The decorating is part of the fun!

Tip 9: Decide if you will have goodie bags. We found a ton of fun toys, pens, puzzles all in Target’s dollar zone. They always have Disney themed goodies. If you google Disney low cost favors, you will come up with a zillion places to purchase any theme surprises.


Tip 10: Don’t forget to take lots of pics and video. On party day it may be a good idea to put a friend in charge of pics and video. Sometimes the host can get pretty busy making sure that everything is going as planned and not have time to zone in on pics, let alone video. This year I am passing the torch on this job so I don’t have to worry about it.

We are so looking forward to seeing everyone’s Disney Side Home Celebrations. Big or Small each party will have its own unique Disney magic. It’s all about fun, friends and family….and sharing our love for Disney! What’s your Disney Side? Do you have another tip? Please leave it in the comments section. We are always looking for more tips!

Disclosure: No compensation was given for this post. We will be hosting a Disney Side Home Celebration in February and just thought if we could help one person to plan, we have done our job.

    Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Across The 2nd Dimension

    Phineas and Ferb
    The Movie
    Across The Second Dimension
    August 5th
    The Disney Channel

    I can’t even begin to tell you how excited our family of five is about

     Phineas and Ferb The Movie,
    that debuts August 5th on The Disney Channel.
    We are a total Disney loving family, so you can imagine how exciting it was for us
    to attend the kick-off of The Platy-Bus Tour across America. We have followed the Platy-Bus across America all the way to this year’s Comic Con in California.
    The kick-off event was superb and we were part of the fun! Radio Disney hosted the event,
    as the fans cheered and danced! My son and daughter were chosen to play a fun game of “Squirrels in your pants”, where my daughter held up a pair of gray pants and my son had to toss stuffed squirrels into them! So much fun for the kids.
    The unveiling of the bus was great and the Phineas and Ferb characters
    were on hand for some fun and photos.

    I also had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with
    Dee Bradley Baker- Perry
    Dan Povenmire- Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz (creator of Phineas and Ferb)
    Jeff “Swampy” Marsh – Major Monogram (creator of Phineas and Ferb)
    Alyson Stoner -Isabella
    Dee Bradley Baker was quite a fun guy and ready to make both the children and adults smile from ear to ear when he graced us with his Perry click!

    To keep it simple, I asked the creators, Dan Povenmire and Jeff “Swampy” Marsh to give me one quote on the upcoming movie. Of course, no one can just give one quote when it comes to a great upcoming movie like Phineas and Ferb The Movie, Across The Second Dimension.
    Diane: Congrats on your upcoming Disney Channel movie.
    Would love one quote about it!
    Dan Povenmire:”I was so pleased to work on this movie. It was so very dear to my heart. I enjoyed creating a movie filled with action and adventure and leaving out any menacing forces. It’s a good clean family fun movie.”
    Diane: How did you come up with the characters Phineas and Ferb?
    Dan: I was at dinner one night and started sketching on some butcher block paper. Triangles were the focus and soon turned into a fun character.Those triangle sketches became Phineas. The next day, I showed them to Jeff and the rest is history!
    Jeff “Swampy” Marsh:
    “The oppurtunity to do emotional things with Phineas and Ferb was incredible. It was wonderful to see the relationships of the characters develop throughout the years and now in a movie. It was inspirational to bring Phineas and Ferb into a full length movie.”
    You can also check out my son’s interview with Dee Bradley Baker!

    What a great day! Be sure to catch Phineas and Ferb: The Movie
    Across the Second Dimension on The Disney Channel, Debuts August 5th!
