Disney Dinner & A Movie Night: Encanto

It has been quite a while since my family, and I had a Disney Dinner & A Movie Night (you can read some of my favorites here and here). Life suddenly got so busy, and it’s been hard to find the time to plan and execute a fun, Disney-movie-filled evening. This week I finally got […]

Disney Dinner & A Movie Night: Zootopia

In a Disney-movie-world of fairytales, princesses, and pirates, my daughter would pick a movie about animals over anything else. She has a hard time sitting through some movies, but I had a feeling that Zootopia would keep her attention. I was excited to put together this movie night for our family. Zootopia tells the story […]

Disney Dinner & A Movie Night: Toy Story 3

As I was getting ready to write this post, I realized that I never blogged about our Toy Story and Toy Story 2 movie nights.

Disney Dinner & A Movie Night: Frozen

Well, we finally did it. We watched Frozen. I’ll be honest, while I have always liked the movie Frozen, I don’t love it, and I don’t think it lives up to all of its hype. In my opinion, Frozen became such a popular movie in part thanks to outstanding marketing. Tangled came out just a […]

Disney Dinner & A Movie Night: UP

If you have ever seen the beginning of the movie Up, and it didn’t make you cry, you’re not human. The song that plays during this emotional scene is “Married Life” and it has so much special meaning to me; that song was playing on Main Street USA in Disneyland when my husband proposed to […]
