My Exclusive Interview with Kurt Russell About His Role as Ego in #GOTGVol2

While on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 last May, I was completely blindsided with a Kurt Russell interview! We thought he would have already been wrapped from filming, but as we were finishing up lunch we were whisked away quickly with no idea what was going on. We were told to follow and that is what we did. We ended up in a blue room where filming was clearly going on – and then were told “you are going to be interviewing Kurt Russell in about three minutes.” What, did I hear that right? KURT RUSSELL? My fellow bloggers and I gasped and took about 5 seconds to freak out before we started wracking our brains for questions to ask a legend in the film industry.

Join Me on Twitter 3/26 for a Digital Viewing of Rogue One & Twitter Party! | #TeamRebel #RogueOneDigital

You might remember that I was lucky enough to interview the cast and see part of Rogue One last December on the Rogue One Press Event. It was an amazing time and since I had only been able to see about 28 minutes of the movie, I went to theaters opening day to watch the rest of it. The movie blew me away. In fact, I went back and saw it a second time. Since then I have been anxiously awaiting it’s release so that I can watch it again…and again…and again. Well that wait is finally over! TODAY, March 24th, you can watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Digital HD and Disney Movies Anywhere! And then on April 4th, you can pick up the Blu-ray Combo Pack or DVD in stores and online!

Planning Your Disney Cruise: 3 Day Versus 7 Day Voyage | #DisneyCruise #Disney

Last year I went on a Disney Cruise with my daughters and my mom. It was a short 3 days cruise but we had a blast. After talking to my husband about it, we decided to book a 7 day cruise – and we actually did this while I was still on board the Disney Dream. For us, the 3 day was such a tease – we wanted more! So I went in to the 7 day knowing that it would be a ton of fun, but I didn’t know how much I still wouldn’t want to leave after a week out at sea.

Kate and Mim-Min Go On 3 Musical Adventures In The New DVD Musical Mimiloo – Out Today! | #DisneyJr #KateandMimMim

My daughters are huge Kate & Mim-Mim fans. I cannot tell you how many times I have caught them spinning around in circles with their stuffed Mim-Mim singing “Kate and Mim-Mim, me and you, let’s sail away to Mimiloo!”. It is honestly adorable and I just want to freeze them in that moment so that they never grow up. My youngest got a Kate doll for Christmas this past year and she has been carrying it around ever since. We have several Kate & Mim-Mim DVDs and were really excited to learn about the release of the newest one, Musical Mimiloo.

Must Have Mickey and the Roadster Racers Toys for Any Disney Fan! | #MickeyRacers #Disney #MickeyRacersEvent

Mickey and the Roadster Racers was an immediate hit for my young daughters. I knew that it would be after I was lucky enough to screen the first episodes and chat with the Executive Producers during the #MickeyRacersEvent! Fun fact: the debut was the #1 cable TV telecast in over one year among Kids 2-5 and Boys 2-5 – which does not surprise me at all. The show is genius! We were thrilled to receive some amazing gifts from Disney which included a whole new line of toys to support the show! My daughters were beyond excited (just watch our unboxing video if you don’t believe me!). These toys have brought hours and hours of fun to our home already – and I know there will be many more where that came from!

5 Reasons to Run the Castaway Cay 5K on Your #DisneyCruise | #runDisney

I have never run a race in my life. My husband was a runner in high school though, so he is not stranger to them. I have always wanted to do a 5K or 10K – especially with Disney – so I was thrilled to learn about the Castaway Cay 5K that I could run while on my Disney Cruise! As tough as it was, it was actually a blast – and I was so proud of myself after doing it. I finished in 36 minutes, which I think is pretty good considering I was eating cruise food and enjoying wine for 6 solid days before it! I enjoyed it so much that I think I caught the running bug! I am hoping to do a run at Disney World next – perhaps the Princess Run?!?

5 Don’t Miss Activities During Star Wars Day at Sea on the Disney Fantasy | #DisneyCruise Series

My husband and I are huge Star Wars fans – we even honeymooned at Disney’s Star Wars Weekend in 2009 and walked out to the Imperial Death March at our wedding. So when we were planning a family cruise, we just knew we had to take advantage of Disney’s Star Wars Day at Sea onboard the Disney Fantasy’s 7 day cruise. Star Wars day actually started the night before, when Captain Phasma showed up unannounced with some Stormtroopers to look for “rebel scum” that were hiding on our ship. That in itself was pretty amazing (and my 5 year old was a bit freaked out) but it only got better from there. There were so many amazing activities throughout the entire day. If you are going on a Disney Cruise that features the Star Wars Day at Sea, here are a few activities that you can’t miss out on!
