Daddy’s Movie Day – Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey’s Great Outdoors

As long as I can remember, my little princess has been in love with Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, so we were definitely excited when Mickey Mouse Clubhouse:  Mickey’s Great Outdoors came in the mail.  Just as we expected it did not disappoint.  We go hours of entertainment and enjoyment out of the set and the new interactive remote.  Zoe was excited to be able to use the remote to interact with episodes and the bonus feature.

Both of us would highly recommend this great set to any Disney fans with little ones to entertain and educate.

Episodes From “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse” TV Show:

  • Mickey’s Camp Out – Today Mickey and his friends are going to earn Clubhouse “Camp Out Badges” by completing two tasks – setting up camp and fishing for Gummy Fish.  Everyone’s planning to camp with a “Tent Buddy”, but Donald decides to camp by himself – and he soon learns that camping with friends is much more fun than camping by yourself.

  • Daisy in the Sky – On Balloon Day, Daisy grabs a large batch of balloons and gets literally carried away along with Minnie and Pluto, who couldn’t hold her down. Mickey, Donald and Goofy kick into high gear to save their friends: they use a Giant Candy Cane (to rescue Pluto), a Party Horn (to warn animals out of the way), a Piggy Bank (to weigh down one side of an elevator so that Mickey can reach the top of the lighthouse), and a Toy Hammer (to fix the Ferris wheel).

About Disney’s Mickey Mote

The Mickey Mote works with any Disney Preschool DVD that includes Discovery Mode(tm), the interactive “Watch & Play” feature on the DVD!  All parents have to do is program the remote control – there’s an easy and quick set-up guide in each DVD- and select the Discovery Mode feature on the menu screen.  Within minutes, kids will be easily responding to questions, throughout the story, about scenes they just watched (such as “What color is Goofy’s hat?”) by pressing one of four color-coded buttons on the device — a yellow star, green circle, orange triangle or blue square – to click in their responses.  Discovery Mode features include two levels of play, which provides more challenging questions as the child grows.

Daddy’s Movie Day – The Avengers Volume 1 and 2

Being the parent of a 4 year old princess, my movie collection is generally filled with all things pink and princess.  However every now and again, I am able to persuade my little lady to watch something out of her normal genre.  When we received The Avengers Volume 1 “Heroes Assemble”, and Volume 2 “Captain America Reborn” cartoons (available now on DVD), I knew watching would be an uphill battle since most of my available movie time coincides with my Zoe time.  To my delight, Zoe looked at the covers and immediately wanted to pop them in the DVD player.

Five hours and 13 episodes later we were still wanting more.  Being a bit of a comic book collector in my youth, I was already a big fan of the Avengers, so keeping my attention wasn’t hard.  However, all 13 episodes kept Zoe glued to the screen well past her bed time.   The mix of quality story lines, well developed characters, and fantastic audio and video quality make this DVD series one of the best I have seen in a long time.  It is a show that can entertain both young and old fans of the superhero genre.

Zoe and I definitely give it two big thumbs up!!!

Note:  Series does contain mild cartoon violence, and might not be suitable for younger children.

The America the Bountiful Garden is a whimsical look at gardening with a focus on the 3 R’s (Reuse, Reduce, and Recycle) located to the right of the American Adventure in Epcot and only here during the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, which continues until May 15th.

Goofy, Donald, and Pluto welcome us into the America the Bountiful Garden!
I loved these vertical planters!!! Some had flowers, while others had strawberries and herbs.
A Close up of the sign.
Goofy on the go!!!!

I loved these flowers in the kiddie pool!
Spare bale of hay???
Or a spare tire laying around? Try using them as an innovative planter!
Who says scarecrows have to be stuffed?
Or that they can't be cool dudes?

Donald is my fave!!!!
But Pluto is sooooo cute....
These buckets o' flowers really were a great touch!!!
I was so close to having a Bon Jovi moment here!!! 🙂
Believe it or not, there is a bathtub underneath all those flowers!
You cant forget the sink!!!
Just outside the Garden, Mickey & Minnie are waiting with arms wide open!

BYOC…Bring Your Own Cast

So the other day, we got the dreaded news that Zoe had fractured her arm and needed a cast.

Having never had a cast, I of course was super nervous…But then I had a big idea. What if we went to the Magic Kingdom and had all her favorite characters sign it for her.

So we boarded the Monorail on a quest to get some signatures!

Riding the Monorail to the Magic Kingdom!

Our first stop was City Hall. What are we Celebrating???

Then it was on to Toontown to see the Princesses!!!

The waiting is the hardest part!!!
Aurora was the first to sign!!!
Cinderella was next up to sign!
And finally, it was Belle's turn!

Then it was time to head over to the Judge’s Tent to get Mickey and Minnie to add their signatures to the collection.

Hey guess what happened at Preschool???
Minnie signing...

And then we were off to find Zoe’s favorite…Peter Pan!!! I was so worried that he would be in Neverland, but he had just finished playing tag with the Lost Boys and Tinkerbell…

Zoe's main man!!!

She had such a great time getting all of them to sign her cast, and she had a great evening showing it off to everyone! It was the perfect way to end a not so good day! 🙂
