The Walt Disney Studios

 Last weekend I went to a preview of Jake and The Never Land Pirates (a new show airing on Disney Junior February 14th) at The Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. I'll be talking about Jake and The Neverland Pirates next week, but I thought today I would share some photos I took while walking back to my car. 

I wouldn't mind having a fence like that!

A Mickey Mouse Themed Birthday Party

Recently my friend Courtney threw a birthday party for her daughter who was turning two. Mickey is her favorite right now, so she knew she had to throw a "Mickmey Pawty" for her. She made some simple decorations using the classic red, yellow, black and white colors, and threw in some mickey ears here and there to create this ever so cute birthday party for her two year old. 
We also talked about the dimensions of a swimming pool since she wanted one. Take a look. 

Happy Birthday Adeline! Looks like you had a magical day.

Pixar Pals Monsters Inc. Mayhem Debuts at Disney California Adventure

Two weeks ago Pixar Pals The Incredibles: Heroes in Training debut at Disney California Adventure, and yesterday we got another Pixar Pals debut... Monsters Inc. Mayhem. 

  The Monsters come out and do a little dance, and they are all happy to be there.

 Suddenly they find out that their power supply in Monstropolis is gone, and they all panic.

They need the screams of children to fill up the power supply tank, but where can they find any humans? 
Then they all realize that there are children all around them. Sulley lets everyone know that children aren't dangerous. 

Random guest are asked to scream into a microphone to fill the tank up. 

 When that doesn't work, Sulley tries to scare everyone, but that doesn't fill up the tank either. 

 Suddenly Boo's laughter fills up part of the tank. "Aha!" Now the Monsters try to collect laughter from the crowd. 

 They have all the kids line up and make funny faces. 

 Nope, doesn't fill up the tank. Next they bring a Dad out to make the crowd laugh. 

 When that doesn't work, Mike Wazowski brings out his canned laughter. The only problem is he hasn't figured out how to open it. Once the can is opened, colorful "worms" come flying out, and everyone laughs filling up the tank.  

 Hooray! Monstropolis is saved! 

These little shows are so simple, but they really pack in 10 minutes of fun for the little ones. I think it's nice that Disney puts on a show like this, while the parade is on a break. It's not only cute, but my son enjoys watching it too. 

The show runs Friday-Tuesday at the Sunshine Plaza and Hollywood Pictures Backlot in Disney California Adventure. 
If you missed the Incredibles: Heroes in Training, you can catch it again this Monday and Tuesday at 2:15, 3:25, and 4:15. 
Times are subject to change, so make sure to grab a guide map when you enter the park.
