“Miles from Tomorrowland” News


Do you have a “Miles from Tomorrowland” fan living in your home?  Well I have a sneak peek for you to share!

Disney Junior is ready to blast off three new episodes of “Miles from Tomorrowland” this Friday, March 20th!  The episodes will air back to back starting at 9:00 am ET/PT on Disney Channel as part of Disney Junior’s exciting “Triple Play Friday” event taking place each Friday throughout the month of March.

Below is the information provided to me to share with you courtesy of Disney Junior!

“Happy Captain’s Day / Planet of the Plants” premieres at 9:00 AM ET/PT on Disney Channel. This episode will kick off the special Friday “Miles from Tomorrowland” event! Here’s a sneak peek of the episode!

In an effort to give Captain Phoebe a wonderful Captain’s Day, Miles, Loretta and Leo embark on a nearly impossible space-task. Then, during a mission to Antheia, a planet completely covered with orange plants, the Callistos discover something stranger than the plants.

Here’s another peak at the Captain’s Day special episode!

The second episode in the “Miles from Tomorrowland” line up is “Ride of the Quarkons / Downsized.” It premieres at 9:25 AM ET/PT on Disney Channel.


The Callistos encounter a pod of Quarkons blocking the Photon Superhighway. Then, when the Callisto family is accidently shrunken down by the Tomorrowland Mail-alien, the tiny family must work together to help Merc save an off-course starship.

The last episode “To the Goldilocks Zone / Hiccup in the Plan” premieres at 9:50 AM ET/PT on Disney Channel.


Miles helps scout out the perfect planet for his Earth friend Haruna to live on. Then, the Callistos must figure out how to escape when a giant Sporjot alien swallows the Stellosphere.

Thank you again to Disney Channel Media Relations for supplying me with the great video clips and content I was able to share with you today!

Have a ‘blastastic’ weekend everyone and I hope your kids enjoy the shows!

“Sofia The First: The Curse of Princess Ivy” Premieres Sunday, November 23rd


This week on Disney Channel, “Sofia The First” episodes feature Disney Princesses!

Little girls across the country are tuning into Disney Channel this week to catch up on “Sofia The First” episodes featuring their favorite Disney Princesses.  Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Cinderella, Jasmine, Mulan and Snow White have each guest starred on different “Sofia The First” episodes and each episode will be shown this week on Disney Channel.  The princess episode week is all in preparation of this weekend’s royal event.

Sunday, November 23rd at 7 pm on Disney Channel, a special family event featuring Princess Rapunzel will premiere! In the prime-time special titled, “Sofia The First: The Curse of Princess Ivy”, Mandy Moore reprises her role as Rapunzel, from Disney’s hit film “Tangled.”

You may be wondering why does the title mention Princess Ivy and not Rapunzel. Take a look at the video link below to find out.

Princess Amber discovers the secret of Sofia’s purple amulet and accidentally summons an evil princess by the name of Princess Ivy. With the help of Rapunzel, I have a hunch that Sofia and Amber can work together to save their kingdom.


My daughter, Victoria, is so excited about Princess Sofia’s latest adventure.  She and I are busy planning a premiere party courtesy of Disney Junior and House Party. I’ve received a free party pack, including the beautifully illustrated book featured in the photo above.  Disney Junior and House Party gave it us to read to our premiere party guests in exchange for a post sharing all our fun with you.  I’m planning a simple Sofia the First craft idea, various Sofia-inspired snacks and of course story-time, all in preparation of “Sofia the First: The Curse of Princess Ivy!”

I can’t wait to share the fun with you this week!

Will your family be enjoying the special Sunday night event too?

pirate picnicAhoy Mate!  Ye invited to a Pirate Picnic!

I’m so excited to start this week!  At the beginning of summer break, the kids and I sat down with the summer calendar and a sheet of paper.  On that paper we wrote everything we wanted to do before summer was over.  One item that was a weekly “must do” was a picnic.  Amazingly enough due to schedule changes, summer vacation is more than half way over and we haven’t had a single picnic yet!  I decided this week we’d check off this summer wish list item with a bit of pixie dust.  We shall have a Pirate Picnic!

Both of my children, ages 2 and 6 years of age, are HUGE Pirates fans.  Gavin, the six-year-old, likes Peter Pan and the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and Victoria, the two-year old, loves Jake and the Neverland Pirates from Disney Junior. This should be a boat load of fun planning and I’m happy to share the stops along the way with you.

Here’s the Pirate Picnic Day Plan:

  • Gavin and Victoria will wake in the morning to find their official Pirate Picnic Invite.
  • Gavin, assisted by his little sister, will have to check off a list of tasks to located the  clues as to where to find the Pirate Picnic Map’s location.  The kids will collect Gold Doubloons along the way as they complete the tasks, which will be items that Gavin usually does to get his weekly allowance.
  • After finding all the “clues”, the kids will be able to guess the location of the map, which will be at his Grandparents house.
  • Once we arrive at their Grandparent’s house, Grandma and Papa will give them the map to the picnic’s location.
  • The Pirate Picnic will be set up in the yard, where Gavin and his sister will find a pirate themed feast of yummy treasures.  One of the treasure treats will be the Captain Hook cupcakes that are pictured above.

Throughout the week I’ll share with you other items that I have prepared for this Pirating day, in hopes that you might be able to use them to create your own Pirate Picnic!    To get you started, check out Disney Junior’s site for Pirate Party printable items, like Gold Doubloons.  They have a bunch of ready to print items that I plan to use for the picnic.  Here’s the link: http://disney.go.com/disneyjunior/parties/birthday-party-ideas/jake-and-the-never-land-pirates-birthday-1825356

Hook To make my Captain Hook inspired cupcakes that are pictured above, you’ll need the following items, which are pictured: white chocolate melts, black food coloring, toothpicks, wax paper, and a cookie sheet to make Captain Hook’s hook.  Simply draw your hook on a piece of white paper and slide it between a layer of wax paper and your cookie sheet.  Then take your melted white chocolate and add a small amount of black food coloring to turn it silver.  Once the chocolate is ready, use your paper drawing as a template to make the hook, slide a tooth pick in the bottom of the hook and if need be, add a dab of chocolate on top of the toothpick to secure.  Chill in the refrigerator while you make Hook’s cuff.

hook cupcake sleeveTo make Hook’s cuff you will need red card stock, glue gun and a doily.  Wilton makes a baking cup kit called Black Doily that I found really easy to use for this project.  The kit comes with the black and white baking cups shown in the supply photo above.  I used the black cup to bake the cupcakes in and the white doily I used as the trim to his red cuff.  I took a picture of them close up so you can see that I cut the base of cup out and cut slits into the doily every inch. This made it easier to glue the doily to the card stock.  I used a little over one doily cup per cupcake.

Last but not least, ice your cupcake with black icing, place the cupcake in Captain Hook’s cuff and gently push the toothpick hook in the center of the cupcake.  Now we are both well on our way to a feast fit for a Pirate!

Have you partied with Pirates before?  I’d love for you to share any Pirate Party photos with Mouse Ears Mom and I’ll share as many as possible on our Facebook page.
