Disney Infinity ~ The Countdown Has Begun #DisneyInfinity

Hi everyone! Have you heard the great news from Disney Interactive? There is an unbelievably cool new video game coming out soon! Disney Infinity is the name, and collecting unique characters, vehicles, and gadgets for your “Toy Box” is the game! There are so many new and exciting aspects of this game that make it stand out like no other video game has before.

I, for one, am really excited because our family’s favorites are ALL in the game! My hubby LOVES Jack Sparrow, my son’s VERY favorite Character is Jack Skellington, my daughter loves Violet from The Incredibles, and I love them all! Woo Hoo!!

Here is the official, VERY FUN trailer showing some of your favorite Disney and Pixar Characters in their own worlds as well as worlds that you’ll be able to create using your own imagination!

Did you see the look on Jack Sparrow’s face when he saw the Evil Emperor Zurg? I about fell out of my chair laughing at his expression. I CANNOT wait to play this game! Thank goodness it will be available on different gaming platforms because we *may* need one for our Wii as well as our XBox! LOL!

I also want to share some of Disney Interactive’s official announcement of the upcoming game earlier this month:

In a way that only Disney can, Disney Infinity integrates collectible character figures that come to life in the game. These figures provide experiences that are true to these characters and stories, as well as the opportunity to bring characters from various Disney and Pixar films to play together in a virtual “Toy Box.” This all-new game universe will launch in June across all consoles and will have a phased roll out across mobile and online devices throughout 2013.

Throughout each story-driven experience, called a “Play Set,” players will solve challenging puzzles, battle enemies and explore iconic locations from famous Disney properties, while collecting unique characters, vehicles, and gadgets from each world and saving them to a virtual “Toy Box.” Players can access their “Toy Box” and build and customize their own unique virtual world using their favorite characters, vehicles, settings and accessories. Disney Infinity allows players the opportunity to share these unique creations in the “Toy Box” mode with friends both online and off.

The Disney Infinity Platform includes: * Disney Infinity Interactive Pieces – Initially a line of 40 collectible interactive pieces will be introduced that allow players to expand and customize their play experiences. * Disney Infinity Interactive Character Figures – Seventeen character figures will allow players to experience a variety of their favorite characters in true to property experiences and in “Toy Box” mode. * Disney Infinity Base – When figures are placed on the Infinity base, they unlock the world and play experiences of Disney Infinity. * Disney Infinity Power Discs – Interactive discs can be placed on the Infinity base to power up characters and “Toy Box” with unique powers, customizations and gadgets.

Random Road Trips: Our getaway to St. Augustine, Florida!

Random Road Trips:
Our getaway to St. Augustine, Florida!

As most of you know, my husband travels a little bit for work. He has a much smaller territory here on the east coast as his furthest customers are just a 3-hour drive from our house. What makes this so fun for us, especially with school being out, is that we can hop in the car and go to some of these fun places with him!

Recently, we joined him down in St. Augustine, FL. I had heard that it was beautiful there but I had no idea just how beautiful it was until we had a look for ourselves. The streets there were so tiny and cute and COBBLESTONE!!

And tell me these two places don’t sound amazing?!?? Remember, you can click on the pictures to view larger!

They had some pretty quirky shops and things…looking forward to spending more time there so we can explore more! Love these Pirates Of The Caribbean steps!

There were so many things to do there too. The famous Ripley’s Believe It Or Not Museum is located there. Ripley’s also offers Sightseeing Trains and a Ghost Train too. We didn’t do these things this time though…have to save some fun for other visits as I’m sure we’ll be going often.

When he travels and spends the night, he always tries to stay in an ICH Hotel because he gets points when he stays there and we really like them! The Holiday Inn Express in St. Augustine was really awesome and so were their staff. I asked the lady at the front desk for dinner recommendations and she had 2…with coupons!

A1A Ale Works is where we had dinner our first night. WOW! What a great restaurant! It’s up on the second story of this yellow building and had a beautiful view of the water and the gorgeous bridge. Their nachos were to die for and the rest of dinner was completely amazing too! I highly recommend this place.

Our second night, we had dinner at Harry’s, which was the front desk lady’s top pick. We decided to eat outside because it cooled off and there was a live musician playing there. The food here was delicious as well and the atmosphere was incredible. When the sun started to set, the strings of lights were lit and made for a really magical setting. It actually reminded me of New Orleans Square at the Disneyland Resort! I’m not sure which restaurant I would choose as my favorite because they were both awesome!

The Fountain Of Youth was literally right around the corner from our hotel so we drove over to take a look. Unfortunately, the gates closed at 5pm, but there were people driving into the exit. I drove over and one of the people that works there waved us in!

The section where you actually drink from the fountain was closed, but there were lots of beautiful peacocks wandering around by the parking lot so we hung out there for a bit. It was pretty cool watching them do their little *dance*. This beautiful guy had about 4 or 5 females wandering around him and he was putting on quite the show. The kids were laughing and singing “All The Single Ladies”.

With its cobblestone streets, quaint restaurants, unique shops, and so many really cool bits of history, St. Augustine is a perfect place for a getaway!
