Toy Story 4 Is Out on Blu-ray Today!

Toy Story 4 Blu-ray

We were provided a digital download of the movie Toy Story 4 for free to review and also additional copies were provided for a giveaway. Opinions are our own.

In the fourth installment we find the toys on a road trip with their new kid, Bonnie. Bonnie is starting Kindergarten and during her orientation she makes a toy named Forky. Forky becomes her most important toy and while Woody begins feeling useless he finds meaning in trying to convince Forky that being a toy is important. Meanwhile Forky only wants to throw himself in the trash.

While on the road trip Forky and Woody end up at a store called Second Chance Antiques. There they also meet Gabby Gabby. There are many new friends and challenges that Woody and Forky encounter as well as an old friend, Bo Peep. There is an underlying story that focuses mostly on Woody and his journey. The overall outcome is quite satisfying and I would say that this time around it a natural stopping point in the story.

Along the way we meet some fun characters like Duke Caboom played by Keanu Reeves. He’s quite funny. Then there is also Ducky (voice of Keegan-Michael Key) and Bunny (voice of Jordan Peele) who are some very funny carnival toys.

We have some fun activity pages and a snack mix you can download to enjoy while you watch the movie or a road trip of your own.

Take Me To Disney Social Media Moms Celebration

An Incredible start to Disney social Media Moms Celebration
Photo-A-Day #4696

Today was the day that we’ve been waiting for ever since getting the invite for the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. We’ve been preparing, planning and filling our hearts with excitement for so long and today was the day when the time finally came for us to go.

The time came at stupid o’clock in the morning. Our flight was at 6am out of Providence which normally means a 4am to 4:30am wake up when it is just me travelling. However, with the family the ticket situation was a bit convoluted. Originally, Allison and I were going to Dad 2.0 at the beginning of February. However, when the invite came the plans changed so that we could have this family adventure. This meant that the tickets needed to be changed. Rather than change the tickets and add the kids to the reservation as well we had to do two separate but connected reservations. This put Allison and I on one and the kids on another. This also meant that we could not check in from home because the kids ticket came up as unaccompanied minors. Well, I called yesterday and straightened things out but we still had to go to the counter. It wasn’t that bad overall. I just knew that once we got on our second plane and were actually on the way to Orlando I could breathe easy.

The flights were actually very nice. Eva and I watched Moana on the first one and Andrew and I watched The Incredibles on the second flight. Moana really hit me. I got pretty emotional watching it. The Incredibles was fun and I bought everyone some Incredibles Magic Bandits and everyone had one of the characters. That was until we lost two of them almost immediately upon arrival. Oh well, good intentions.

We got to the Orlando airport and got our one checked bag that wasn’t tagged to go all the way to the hotel. We caught the Magical Express and were seated next to my friend, Mitch from Gay NYC Dad. Mitch and I have been friends for a long time. It was good to see him and finally meet his husband and son. Continue reading Take Me To Disney Social Media Moms Celebration
