Photos: Disneyland California Vacation

We had a chance to travel to California during the spring break. Now that Little Brandon is older, it was more enjoyable. He was able to go on all of the rides. We would love to share some photos of his experience.

Disney's The Lion Guard: Return of the Roar {Review}

THE LION GUARD is now available on DVD (released February 23, 2016). We've always loved The Lion King and this is a great sequel. Little Brandon is always talking about the characters of Mafusa (from the original Lion King), who now has a grandson named Kion. Often, we tell the story as a bedtime story and never gets bored of it.

DESCRIPTION: Meet Kion, second-born cub of Simba and Nala, as he assumes the role of leader of “The Lion Guard,” an elite team of animals tasked with preserving the Pride Lands. Follow him as he assembles a group of unlikely heroes: Bunga the honey badger, Fuli the cheetah, Beshte the hippo and Ono the egret. Join them on a thrilling adventure as they use their unique abilities to defend the Pride Lands from predators and maintain balance within the Circle of Life. Bursting with humor, music, beloved characters and heart, The Lion Guard: Return Of The Roar is a must-own for the entire family!

LEGO Star Wars: Droid Tales {Review}

LEGO STAR WARS: DROID TALES was recently released on DVD March 1, 2016. Little Brandon had a chance to watch it and he really enjoyed it. We thought it was entertaining and funny.  Our family is a fan of both Star Wars AND Lego; and we love watching movies together so this is a bonus for us. The animations are pretty awesome and the storylines of each of the five episodes are easy to follow.

DESCRIPTION: The fun begins following the victory celebration in the Ewok village on Endor, at the end of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. R2-D2 and C-3PO have gathered to regale Luke, Leia, Han, Chewbacca and the other Rebels with the tales of their adventures that led to the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. An accidental kidnapping occurs while the droids are reminiscing, and suddenly you’re taken on a new journey that leads to the retelling of the entire Star Wars saga, as told by R2-D2 and C-3PO! It’s hilarious and playful, packed with all your favorite interlocking characters. LEGO® STAR WARS™: DROID TALES is intergalactic thrills for the whole family!

Disney's Zootopia {Review}

Disney's Zootopia was released in theatres on March 4, 2016. The reviews have been very positive and tops box office with $73.7 million during the first weekend of opening in the US and Canada.

DESCRIPTION: The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighbourhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when rookie Officer Judy Hopps (voice of Ginnifer Goodwin) arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde (voice of Jason Bateman), to solve the mystery.

OUR REVIEW: Thanks to Disney Studios Canada, we were invited to see the film for the Zootopia screening. We took our Little One (Brandon) to see the film at Silvercity at Metropolis, Metrotown and he was all excited about it. The storyline is well-written, amazing animation and graphics, and a bit of comedy that keeps the audience entertained. There is also a surprising twist. It's brilliant!

Our favorite scenes are when Officer Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde hustled on each other and they soon became good friends. Some scenes may be a bit scary for the younger viewers, especially where the animals have gone "savage" and wild. That's what my 7-year-old says. I'm not going to spoil all of it by going to details, so you'll have to go see the movie to find out for yourself how Officer Judy Hopps solved the crime.

Watch trailer below:
