The Disney Holiday Blogger tour recently rolled into LA, and you know I was super excited to see this year's Holiday Gift Ideas from Disney. From DVDs to Video Games, they've even got a whole bunch of fun stuff to do with your family online.
I'm sure you are wondering how I made these awesome videos below, I shot them with my new FLIP HD VIDEO CAMERA which I absolutely LOVE! (I edited them in iMovie on my Mac.) If you don't have one of your own yet, I suggest you go out and get one. Along with my DSLR, this video camera goes everywhere with me. And it's so small, like my iPhone, I keep it in my back pocket. As a blogger, it is so helpful to make great HD quality videos about the events or products I am learning about. Vlogging is the wave of the future & with the MinoHD I am right there. But even more importantly, as a parent a video camera might be even more valuable than a camera. Still shots are good, don't get me wrong, but when you hear your babies voice on film, or see their personality on the screen, it's really amazing. (*Thanks Cisco for providing me with my Flip. You have made my Christmas complete.)
The season of giving is here, but don't fear Disney is here to help make this season bright!
This year's Holiday lineup has so many things for all of the people on your list!
(why yes, that is a toy story napkin under my champagne glass, thanks for asking - ha!)
One of the most anticipated games of this year: EPIC MICKEY (and one that is on my husband & my list.) Disney's Epic Mickey is an action-adventure game for the Wii, "that sends Mickey Mouse on an epic journey of creativity and discovery. As Mickey, the player is propelled into Wasteland, an alternative world made up of Disney's forgotten creative efforts, and is given the power to wield paint and paint thinner to dynamically change the world while determining Mickey's path to become an epic hero."
But let's not forget some of the other "most wanted" Video Games, there are plenty... Disney Interactive has so many new things to share this year. I know I was excited to learn about all of the newest released games, for all different ages and interests, from teens to tots. Future Pop Stars to Cars fans... They got you covered Parents!
TANGLED, It's all about the hair!
DISNEY CHANNEL: ALL STAR PARTY
CARS: MATER'S TALL TALES
SING IT: Party Hits with some of todays hottest songs sung, by the artists & your kids!
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care... Filled with Disney Home Movies:
The toys are back in town, TOY STORY 3
A tale as old as time, BEAUTY and the BEAST
The Search for SANTA PAWS
FANTASIA and FANTASIA 2000
Disney's A CHRISTMAS CAROL
Make any night a family movie night with these classic Disney movies! I know most of these are on my daughter's Christmas List this year! (and mine too) And the star of the night, actually wasn't Santa Claus, it was this little guy. We actually got to meet (& take a photo with) one of the SANTA PAWS puppies! It was SOOOO Cute! I wanted to take him home in my gift bag!
