Our Moana Viewing Party Fun + Win Your Own Digital Copy! | #Moana #Disney #MoanaOnDigital

When I was vacationing with my family in Disney World last November, we were lucky enough to see Moana a few days before it came out. We actually watched it on the beach at the Polynesian Resort – and despite being an uncharacteristically cold night in Florida, it is a great family memory of ours. We all loved the movie so much that my husband came home and immediately got HeiHei and Pua tattoos! We are also planning to get matching Mini Maui tattoos soon. So of course we were thrilled to hear that Moana was finally coming out on Blu-ray and DVD! It recently became available on Disney Movies Anywhere and Digital HD/3D. We actually rented it from a hotel when we were on vacation a couple weeks ago. But Moana is coming home on Blu-ray and DVD on March 7 and it is jam packed with amazing bonus features!

DIY Disney Cruise Door Decorations + My Favorites I Found on Etsy | #DisneyCruise #DIY

I took my daughters on a Disney Cruise last August. We loved it so much that we immediately booked (while still on board) another Disney Cruise. We leave next week and I am so excited about it! One thing we did not do for our last cruise but decided we could not miss out on it this time is door decorations. My 5 year old loved walking around the ship and pointing out the different door decorations that we found. She enjoyed reading all of the names on them and looking at pictures that were put up. There are tons of options on Etsy and Amazon, but my girls love being crafty (even though their mama really isn’t). So we went ahead and decided to make our door decorations this time.

Principal Photography on the Untitled Han Solo Star Wars Story Has Begun! | #StarWars #HanSolo

If you know anything about me, you know I am a HUGE Star Wars fan. I am also a huge Han Solo fan (I mean, how can you not be). When the Han Solos solo film (see what I did there) was announced, I was thrilled. I can not wait to delve deeper into one of my favorite characters in the Star Wars universe! I just found out that principal photography has begun on this film and it is becoming more real to me now! The actors involved are amazing – Donald Glover anyone? I LOVE him! He is going to be the perfect Lando! I am thrilled that I only have to wait until May 2018 to see this movie – I am so used to Star Wars movies coming out in December. Buckle up guys – this is going to be an amazing ride!

Easy DIY Fish Extender & Fish Extender Gift Guide | #DisneyCruise Series #DIY

While on board the Disney Dream last August, I learned all about Fish Extender groups. What exactly is a fish extender? Well, outside your room on the ship is a message holder – in most cases it’s shaped like a fish (but can be a starfish or sea horse). This is there for Disney to place important communications to you, such as excursion tickets and notes from the Cruise staff. It is basically a mailbox for your room. A Fish Extender (FE) it is something that you hang off the fish, much like a pocketed organizer. By hanging the Fish Extender off of the fish the Cast Members can still use it for its original purpose.

Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange Comes to Digital HD 2/14 & Blu-ray 2/28 | #DoctorStrange #Marvel

My husband and I went to see Doctor Strange in theaters and were blown away. We loved everything about it. I am a huge Marvel fan, so I was really excited for this movie. To be honest, Doctor Strange is not one of my favorite characters from the comic books, so I was a little nervous going in. But after watching the movie, I have even started enjoying his character in the comics more. Benedict Cumberbatch was incredible – as were all the actors.

James Gunn Discusses Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Baby Groot, Family Dynamics, & A Possible Trilogy | #GOTGVol2

No set visit is complete without a chat with the director – and James Gunn, director of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, completely agrees with this statement. Even though we were pressed for time and all had flights to catch, he told us not to leave without a chance to talk to him. James even had assistants bring our luggage to our car so that we could have a conversation with him. We were all thrilled to work an interview with James in to our busy schedule. It had been a long day for all of us – James included. He mentioned that there were two sets running at the same time that day, one with Kurt Russell, and one with everybody else – so he had been running back and forth all day. We actually got to see both sets – we interviewed Kurt on his and watched the rest of the cast film on the other. What an experience – I still cannot believe it happened!

Karen Gillan Talks About Nebula’s Daddy Issues & More on the Set of Guardians Of The Galaxy Volume 2 | #GOTGVol2

Karen Gillan is one bad b*tch in the movies – but she is the sweetest thing in real life! I had the chance to sit down and chat with her on the set of her new film Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 and she couldn’t be more different than her character, Nebula. She is bubbly and enthusiastic – two things you would never say about Nebula, Gamora’s evil adopted sister. She told us that it was so nice to be back on set with everyone. “It’s such a line to say like we’re like one big happy family, but we genuinely are.” We got the same vibe from the other actors we interviewed – that they were all genuinely happy to be back on set with each other. Karen told us that the atmosphere backstage is very much like what you see on the screen. “It’s that sort of banter – that sort of nature to it. That’s what it’s like off screen – and they play music, which really lifts people’s spirits. The music is an integral part of these films. Also everyone is really nice – there’s not one person that’s standoffish or surrounded by people. It’s not like that at all. It all filters down from the top – that’s from James [Gunn]. He sets a really good tone for everyone and casts nice people.”

Dave Bautista Talks About His Role as #Drax on the Set of #GotGVol2! | #GOTGVol2Event

I think we can all agree that Dave Bautista seems like an intimidating man. I will tell you that he is bigger in person – but much less intimidating. As he walked in to the interview room on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 last May – in full Drax costume and makeup – I was a little bit speechless. What a force walking through that door – what an incredible sight! I am a giant Guardians of the Galaxy fan and to see Drax sitting in front of me was pretty amazing. But Dave is probably one of the sweetest, soft-spoken, and down-to-Earth guys I have ever met. We had a great conversation about how he felt about coming back to the set, how long it takes for him to become Drax, and he what he loves about his character.

Zoe Saldana Shares Tips on Marriage, Fitness, & Empowering Women | #GOTGVol2Event

While on the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2 last May, I had the amazing opportunity to sit down and talk with Zoe Saldana. This was a live set and because she was so busy filming, we only had a few moments with her (she was in full Gamora garb and looked AMAZING, by the way). Even though our time with her was short, my interview with her was one of the most inspirational few moments of my life. She stressed how important women’s health is and how we have to take care of ourselves, which is easy to forget when you are a busy mom. Ladies, we should come first!
