So on opening day of Disney’s The Princess and The Frog Movie – I went and saw it. Just got back about a half hour ago. I decided to have a mom and daughter day and it is very rare that I ever see a movie the day it opens. I am not one for crowds and busy theaters – just me. I was luck that my local town theater was featuring this movie today – so I got extra lucky. So what did I think? I loved it – It is very rare that any Disney Movie would not be liked. The introduction of Princess Tiana was well done and it is nice to have a new Princess in the line up.
I think the movie sends a great message to younger children about working hard to achieve your goals and dreams. Yes of course there is also the fantasy of kissing a frog and finding your prince, but that is the fantasy part of the movie. I also really enjoyed all the Jazzy New Orleans Style Music throughout the movie and it really added to the charm. I think this movie had all the magic Disney Movies bring between the animation. music and the message. I came out of the theater with the thought – Dreams do come True and truly if you believe they will.
I give this movie 2 thumbs up and if you have the opportunity to see it – I say go for it. So once again – Welcome Princess Tiana – there is no doubt little girls everywhere are happy you have been created.
Now that I have seen the movie I will be making some changes to The Princess and The Frog Party Theme I have put together to reflect some ideas I have gathered from watching the movie. So be sure to come stop by and see.
I am so excited for the new Disney movie The Princess and The Frog and the introduction of Princess Tiana – Disney’s first African American Princess. It has been a very long time since Disney has had a new princess for all the little girls to idolize. I have to share a great Squidoo page I put together that has everything needed to have a Princess and The Frog Birthday Party . I worked very hard on this one and it includes everything from the Official Disney The Princess and The Frog Party Supplies, Invitations, Games, Crafts, Free Printable Games and a lot more. It is definitely a one stop shop to putting this theme together and I will keep it updated with all the latest supplies as they are released.
In addition to that I have put together some great party kits to go along with this celebration on my website. I am now offering Stuff a Frog Kits – these were put together to go perfectly with The Princess and The Frog Party Theme and specially priced. Each Kits comes with a Stuffable Frog offered in two size choices – 15″ and also 8″ included is a KISS Sound Chip, Pink Princess T-Shirt, Wishing Star, Stuffing, Custom Birth Certificate and Directions. You will also find on my website Chocolate Covered Rice Krispy Treat Love Frogs and Kiss Lips that are also perfect to go along with this party theme.
I have to say I am so in love with the great party colors that were chosen for the party supplies – I think they are so pretty with the purple, green and blue. I give Kudos to the Disney people behind designing those – they are beautiful.
I also created a Hubpage on Princess Tiana and some of the new toys starting to take over the market – and we all know they will take over the market. Disney never lets us down when it comes to marketing and Princess Tiana just opened up a new door to let the flood flow. I am looking forward to seeing how they will change all the existing merchandise to incorporate the new princess. Something tells me we will see a Huge influx this 2009 Holiday Season as the movie is set to be in theaters in November. Perfect timing Disney!!! So even with the number of toys currently available at this time – there is no doubt in my mind it will double.
Disneyland and Walt Disney World plan to add a Mardi Gras-style musical cavalcade called Tiana’s Showboat Jubilee for the 2009 holiday season, according to theme park officials. This sounds like so much fun. This special treat is only for a limited time and opens in Disney World on October 26th, 2009 and will only run until January 3rd, 2010. I think if you can get there to see this it will magical. I am sure Disney Parks has something in the works for a permanent attraction based on The Princess and The Frog, but we will have to wait and see. Ya know my dad works at Disney World (yes I am lucky) so I will have to see if he has any inside information. Hmmmm.
