PICTORIAL: We tried to pool-hop all 6 Universal Orlando Resort’s hotel pools!

Sure, it’s winter but when you’re on vacation in Florida, you hit the water. Whether it’s the beach or a pool, a waterside view is basically mandatory and when we visited Universal Orlando Resort in January this year, we made good on this unofficial commitment to our water-baby selves. We stayed for a few days at Universal’s Aventura Hotel (check out our full-look pictorial at this hotel) and learned upon...

REVIEW: Eye-Candy at home! THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS available now!

THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS have found their way to the home market and ready to dazzle your home screens the way it did the big screen this past winter. Despite a disappointing box office, I still think this will be a movie that could have long-term longevity. The beauty of the world created is unquestionable and although the story tended to meander through the woods — both literally and figuratively — the end...

REVIEW: Jeff Kurtti’s PRACTICALLY POPPINS IN EVERY WAY is a fantastic look into the history of everyone’s favorite nanny

Like the unexpected winds in the east, we received a review copy of author Jeff Kurtti’s new book Practically Poppins in Every Way: A Magical Carpetbag of Countless Wonders. We were delighted to find a rather robust tome looking not just into the brand new film but into the legacy and history of the practically perfect nanny! It’s no secret that a lot of us on the MouseInfo crew absolutely loved the recent MARY POPPINS...

REVIEW: MARY POPPINS RETURNS is the practically perfect medicine 2018 needs

Fifty four years after Walt Disney enchanted the world with his seminal masterpiece, MARY POPPINS, the studio has circled back to the untouchable classic for a sequel (not a remake). Based on the practically unadaptable book series by P.L. Travers, Walt’s team, lead by the legendary Sherman brothers, the original film has been loved by generations. I love MARY POPPINS. How many children have been convinced an umbrella would help...

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET, will he shatter the box office too?

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET is a bandwidth filling adventure through the inter-tubes. Take your root beer in a to-go cup because memes and logos whiz past in this million megabit per second ride through the net. Ralph (voiced by John C. Reilly) might have broken the internet but Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman) steals the movie, Shank’s (Gal Gadot) car, and also our hearts. Disney has given us a princess this time for the...

FIRST TASTE: New food options make things tasty and bright for the 2018 Disney Holidays!

The holidays are a time of joy, merriment… and FOOD. This weekend, we hit the Disneyland Resort to get our first taste of the new offerings at the Disneyland Resort. Rather than hit up the FESTIVAL OF HOLIDAYS which seemingly has a lot of carryover from previous years, we decided to taste our way around the parks for the non Festival food items. We found an interesting batch of flavors that add some variety to the typical...
