Blogging Disney has featured the world of Pixie Hollow on three previous occasions.
In August 2011, I blogged about the Disney Fairies Magazine and the Disney Fairies Fly mobile app: Tinker Bell and Disney Fairies Magazine.
In September 2011, I promoted the TV premiere and home video release of the Pixie Hollow Games movie with links to online games and contests. Pixie Hollow Games, Contests, and More!
And in July 2013, I gave a detailed review of one of my favorite Disney apps: Disney Fairies Fashion Boutique.

For those of us who grew up with Disney in our childhoods, all it takes is a glance – a glass slipper, a honey pot, the looping cursive of the Disney “D”, or the silhouette of Mickey’s ears – to bring memories of Disney films, raggedy princess dresses, and vacations to the “happiest place on earth” flooding back.
For almost 90 years and more than 50 animated features, the Walt Disney Company has been working its magic on generations of children, embedding its iconic imagery and beloved characters deep into the hearts and minds of millions of life-long fans.

The brilliance of Disney Channel’s newest original movie is evident in its guileless title: it’s a Teen Beach Movie. Channel surfers (and actual surfers!) will know exactly what they’re getting into when they flip to the Disney Channel this Friday night, July 19th.

Formerly titled Teen Beach Musical, Teen Beach Movie is a throwback to the 1960s genre of “beach party” movies, first popularized by the Gidget film series (and TV spinoff) which starred Sandra Dee as a teenage surfer girl in 1959′s Gidget. The 1963 Beach Party movie (starring Frankie Avalon and former Mouseketeer Annette Funicello) launched a series of films which debuted between 1963 and 1966, and the genre quickly spun off into dozens of other films by competing studios looking to take advantage of the explosion in popularity.

Although some Disney Parks are light on thrill rides (Epcot’s got Test Track, Mission:Space and not much else), what makes the Disney Parks superior to amusement parks like Six Flags is the theming.

All of the Disney Parks are fully immersive and themed inside-and-out, from interactive waiting queues like the spooky graveyard at the Magic Kingdom’s Haunted Mansion to Hollywood Studios’ Los Angeles backdrops and Epcot’s iconic Spaceship Earth – a ride inside of a giant globe.
The Disney Imagineers’ attention to detail is flawless, making every trip to the Disney Parks a magical and unparalleled experience. And now, you can “bring (some of) the magic home” by sprucing up your own interiors with an exclusive line of Disney Paints available only at Walmart.

Several months ago, I downloaded the Disney Fairies Fashion Boutique app for the iPhone with the intent to write a review for Blogging Disney. I didn’t expect to enjoy playing the app as much as I did, and yet here we are, weeks later, and I am still running a fashion boutique for fairies with clientele as illustrious as Tinker Bell herself.

A middle-schooler I recently tutored saw an app notification pop up on my phone and expressed with surprise, “I didn’t know adults play Disney Fairies!” Well, we do. And we like it.
