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!
Bleacher Creatures are one of my all time favorite plush companies. I have tons of them on display on the couch in my office and I love each and every one of them. I always get comments from friends and family when they see them asking where they can get their own. From sports players, to political influencers, to geeky ones like Marvel and DC Comics – Bleacher Creatures has thought of everything! I have never had an issue with mine, they are always well made – and totally adorable! I was super excited to hear that Bleacher Creatures is introducing two new sets of Bleacher Creatures – Teen Titans Go set 2 and DC Super Hero Girls! Both these shows are favorites in our house – so you know I cannot wait to add these guys to my collection!
Growing kids can stay rear-facing longer with the Graco Extend2Fit Convertible car seat. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends rear-facing until at least 2 years of age. We did this with both our girls (actually a little bit longer). Now you can keep your child safely rear-facing, longer, without scrunching their little legs thanks to this new car seat from Graco! The Extend2Fit Technology provides an extendable base that gives your little one up to five additional inches as they grow. This gives their legs room to stretch while keeping them rear-facing up to 50 pounds and 45-inch. Trust me, I wish we had this available when our girls were a little younger. My 4 year old is a peanut and could likely safely rear face in this car seat with no problems at all!

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!

The lovable Care Bears and their kindhearted cousins return for more adventures in Care Bears & Cousins: BFFs – Volume 2, arriving on DVD and Digital HD March 7 from Lionsgate. Consisting of six episodes from the all-new series, this installment follows the Care Bears as they teach children important lessons through their exciting journeys in the magical land of Care-a-Lot. My daughters love the Care Bears, and so do I. I grew up watching them – it was always one of my favorite shows when I was a little girl. So, of course, I have loved sharing this love with my young daughters. They find it so funny that their mommy watched the Care Bears when she was their age.
One of my daughters’ favorite things to do is play princesses together. We are huge Disney fans so they have been growing up surrounded by princesses. Our house is filled with princess dresses, tiaras, scepters, and more – just about everything a princess needs. But we were missing something – a castle fit for a couple adventurous princesses. Now, thanks to our new Pacific Play Tents Kids Castle Pavilion, we have everything we need for a fun filled day of pretend!
My girls love The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That – it is one of their favorite educational shows. My husband and I love it too because they really do learn from it. I am blown away at times with what they tell us after watching a couple episodes. We all love space so we were super excited to get The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About Space! We popped it in right away and we all enjoyed watching it (I even learned a thing or two). This series is great for young kids and parents alike.
