DisneySMMoms 2011: Private Backstage Party at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Private Backstage Party at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

 

After our very fun day of conferences and amazing speakers, we headed over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for a backstage dinner party RIGHT on the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show set! Holy cow! We actually walked over the bridge that the car drives on in the finale! It was awesome!

We were treated to an awesome introduction to Disney Junior and a description of all the fun new shows that would be on! Even though our kids are a bit old for the new Disney Junior shows, our 9-year old really enjoyed watching the younger kids dance and she even got in on the action a little too! I just love that she gets a kick out of the characters at Disney. She is the one who took this next set of pics of the Jake and the Neverland Pirates characters! She’s doing such a great job with her new digital camera!

I can’t believe how cool it was to actually be ON this amazing set! I’ve always loved this show and being able to have dinner and a party there was just amazing!!

Disclosure: I paid to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. In exchange for my registration fee, I received deeply discounted rates on hotel, park tickets, events, meals, and swag. I am not required nor was I asked to write about the events by Disney or any other party affiliated with the event. Thoughts are 100% my own.

Disney Junior – Where the Magic Begins!

 

Playhouse Disney has undergone an “extreme makeover” and Disney Junior will make its grand debut on Disney Channel February 14, 2011! Disney Junior is devoted to children ages 2 to 7 and their families.

Disney Junior will encourage parents to join their children and immerse themselves in the Disney experience of magical, musical and heartfelt stories and characters, both classic and new, while incorporating specific learning and developmental themes. Some of the classic favorites that will be a part of Disney Junior include “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,” “Handy Manny,” “Special Agent Oso,” and “Imagination Movers”. Here are some of the brand new series you’ll be able to enjoy:

*”Jake and the Never Land Pirates,” an animated adventure combining new and classic Disney characters Captain Hook and Smee (“Peter Pan”).

*A series of Disney Poetry Shorts which showcases poems for children set against classic Disney animation.

*Two short form series, “Mickey Mousekersize”, hosted by Mickey Mouse himself, which will focus on the fun of exercising and encourage children at home to get up and move with their Disney Pals, and “Special Agent Oso: Three Healthy Steps,” to encourage healthy lifestyles for preschoolers and families as they watch a live-action kid demonstrate three healthy steps to exercising and eating right.

*”Babar and the Adventures of Badou,” an updated version of the classic “Babar,” that introduces King Babar’s energetic eight-year-old grandson, Badou, and friends as they explore the world of Celesteville.

*”Tinga Tinga Tales,” a vibrant animated adventure inspired by traditional African animal folktales and the art of Tanzania.
