In celebration of "Secret Of The Wings," Tinkerbell, and Periwinkle a magical outdoor ice rink is now located in the middle of Downtown Disney. Last night we braved the Southern California cold (65 degrees) and ventured out into the Winter Woods aka Downtown Disney at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim. There is a very special event happening and being that we're sisters,
we couldn't wait to be a part of it!

The Disney Land Resort along with Disney Toon Studios has turned Downtown Disney into a winter wonderland to welcome Periwinkle, the winter fairy. Tinkerbell and Periwinkle discover they are sisters in Disney's newest cartoon Fairy Movie "Secret Of The Wings" now available on DVD and Blu-ray.

The ice skating rink is open now through January.

We'd like to say an extra special thanks to our friends, "Secret Of The Wings" Director Peggy Holmes and Producer Michael Wigert for speaking to us about Fairies, Tinkerbell and Periwinkle finding each other for the first time, the importance of sisterhood, and the Mcclain Sisters singing "The Great Divide".  This is our very favorite Disney movie of 2012!!!

The Disney Haunted Mansion Moves To Club Penguin

Do you remember last year's Club Penguin's Halloween Party
Well, if you loved the island of Transylvania, this year promises you'll have more Ghoulish Fun!

Starting today the Club Penguin Halloween Party begins with The Haunted Mansion at Disney taking over Club Penguin and 9 creepy rooms to discover. The island is overrun by ghosts and it's up to players to protect it by becoming ghost hunters! First, players must find the Ghost Goggles hidden in the haunted mansion to be able to see the ghosts they are hunting, next find the Ghost Lab. There are cool costumes, spook-tacular scavenger hunts and an Igloo Contest! Some very lucky players will be able to interact with Gary the Gadget Guy during the Halloween party, helping him solve the mystery of his great uncle Gariwald's disappearance.

Walt Disney and Mickey Mouse - The Power Of Two

All three Disney Sisters are big dreamers. We each have different hopes and dreams but we all share a love for Disney. About a week ago, we had a dream of ours come true and we are so excited to share our day with our readers through video provided to us by Disney.

The adventure began with a mysterious save the date email that was very vague. We recognized Mickey Mouse and Oswald in the email and were really happy figuring we would be exploring the new Epic Mickey 2: The Power Of Two video game. As details of the event came in, there was mention of a  car service, The Grand Californian Hotel, lunch and interviews with Warren Spector and Paul Weaver of Junction Point, Peter Ong of DreamRift and Disney Interactive's VP of Product Development, Bill Roper and as if that wasn't enough, dinner in a secret private location. To say we were excited would have been an understatement!

When we arrived at the event, we played Epic Mickey 2 and had a lovely lunch as they shared with us the inspiration Disneyland had given them when designing the video game. There are many specific things in Disneyland that have significance in the game, Epic Mickey 2 like animatronics. Our day was filled with Disney game magic and we were loving every minute of it. Little did we know what was about to come next.

After lunch, we were whisked off to Disneyland and given the once in a lifetime opportunity to take a "Walk in Walt's Footsteps" tour with Warren Spector and Paul Weaver of Junction Point. During the tour Warren Spector pointed out how he, Paul Weaver and the rest of his team used The Disneyland Train Station, Main Street and The Hub as well as the iconic Castle view as inspiration when creating wasteland to give players something familiar to connect with that made them want to play and ultimately save Wasteland. When we found out in the tour we were going to see Walt Disney's apartment, we were giddy. We could almost not contain ourselves.
 It was a dream come true.

When you watch the video, you will notice two things, one that Becky gets really emotional inside Walt Disney's apartment listening to the stories and two, the surprise private location for dinner was none other than Club 33! The video actually shows inside Walt's apartment and inside the upstairs dining room of Club 33!!! As most Disney fans know, these are two places cameras/video cameras are almost never allowed.

We hope you enjoy watching the video!
(Warning: this video is 26 minutes of all the Disney magic you can possibly handle!!!)

If you have a Disneyland pass or this is your first visit the park, taking one of the Disneyland tours would be a real treat. We recommend getting reservations and finding out more by visiting Disneyland's website.

We will have more exciting coverage of our day and Epic Mickey 2 coming soon!

Disclosure: We were invited to a Media Day preview of Epic Mickey 2, which included the tour and dinner at Club 33. It was a night that we will remember for the rest of our lives. All opinions are 100% Magical and 100% those of the Disney Sisters. Video shot by Disney, footage used with by permission.

Once Upon A Time: A Cinderella Story now on Blu-Ray and DVD

Once Upon A Time . . .
It was said that one shoe could change your whole life . . .
Cinderella is fairy tale that proves it, Fairy Godmother and all. The Cinderella story that only Disney can tell is back . . .

Cinderella came out on Blu-Ray and DVD on October 2. One of the most classic Disney movies of all time is available and out of the vault for a limited time, and now on Diamond Edition! So hurry up, you don't want to be late for the ball or miss out on a chance to own this happy ever after story. It's pretty special to watch this movie for the first time with your child. Jessica's daughter really loved all of the adorable animals, especially the mice and Gus in particular.

We just got our own copy of Cinderella and it's just as magical as we remember it. The prince is just as handsome, the step family is just as evil and Cinderella is just as beautiful. Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo is now out on Bibbidi Bobbidi Blu. (Blu-Ray and DVD that is!) You'll also get the Tangled Ever After short film included on the disc. 

One of our favorite parts of Disney's Cinderella is the music. One of the greatest songs ever to come from a Disney Movie is, "A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes." And who could forget about, "So This Is Love." As a special tribute we have decided to put the lyrics to music of Cinderella as sung by Ilene Woods, written and composed by Mack David, Al Hoffman and Jerry Livingston.

A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes

A dream is a wish your heart makes

When you're fast asleep

In dreams you will lose your heartaches

Whatever you wish for you keep

Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling thru
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're feeling small, yeah
Alone in the night you whisper
Thinking no one can hear you at all
You wake with the morning sunlight
To find fortune that is smiling on you
Don't let your heart be filled with sorrow
For all you know tomorrow
The dream that you wish will come true

A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you're fast asleep
In dreams you will lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for you keep

You wake with the morning sunlight
To find fortune that is smiling on you
Don't let your heart be filled with sorrow
For all you know, tomorrow
The dream that you wish will come true
No matter your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true
