This is a celebratory week in our house. Cinderella is being released on Blu-Ray Combo Packs on October 2, 2012! YES, after 7 years, the movie is being released from the vault! And Walmart has the gift sets for you with figurines, ornaments and more! The bonus material and hysterical Tangled Ever After short makes these packs a collectors item for all Cinderella fans! There is a reason that this is one of the top 10 animated movies of all time! And to help celebrate the release, I downloaded the NEW Disney Royal Ball Augmented Reality App!
I downloaded the app to my iPhone in no time and my 3 year old, Megan, has had a blast with it! Users can dress their favorite princesses in jewels, their gowns and more. They can even decorate the carriage their princess will ride in all the way down to the tires! And then, they can attend the Royal Ball at the Royal Palace where they have a fairy tale dance. But what is really cool is that you can take photos of certain Cinderella displays and faces in Walmart and the app will open up new games and activities too!
This is very cool and if I ever get my phone back from my daughter, I will play with it more to see all of the incredible things it does! Find out more about the Disney Royal Ball Augmented Reality App and download it for your princess today!
In the meantime, I am all about making the release of this movie AMAZING for my kids! Growing up reading books about Cinderella and watching the movies over the years have made her a beloved princess for me. So to have my girls over the moon about her too is just plain fun! My girls dress up at least several times a week and reenact all kinds of scenes from their princess movies. They sing, they dance and we go through costumes like no tomorrow! It is a wonderful time though and I do not mind feeding their imagination with props and more!
I found out recently that on October 6, 2012, there will be a Walmart Cinderella Retailtainment event from 11-3pm at select Walmart’s nationwide! Check with your store to see if it is participating and then dress up your princess and head over for activities, pumpkin carving and more! There is no way in the world I am letting my little girls miss this! It will be SO FUN for them -and me, I won’t lie!
So, I decided since this movie will be watched and loved for years to come in our family that I would add to the excitement and throw a Cinderella themed party for my girls and their friends after the event! So, I took my youngest, the app to play with, and my Cinderella thinking cap and headed to Walmart to gather outfits for the girls and party items for the viewing party!
See my entire shop and prep below + the App in action below in my Google + Story:
It was easy to find the Cinderella display in my store. It was right behind the woman giving the Flu Shots next to the Pharmacy! Dresses, shoes and other princess accessories were on display. And then we rounded the corner we saw even more fun costumes and accessories, including a Cinderella wig! I let Megan decide to be her favorite princess, Snow White and got Sarah her choice of Ariel and then honored Katie’s first choice to be Cinderella! I admit, I may have gone overboard but this is SO FUN!
I then headed to the toy section to see what new and great toys were coming out to compliment the movie and am impressed with the fun, interactive toys! Megan’s Christmas list grew as I looked at everything and decided what all three girls would enjoy the most. And then I found the perfect party favors for our Cinderella guests… mini princess dolls!
Next I went to the Birthday aisle and picked up goodie bag, favors and more! This Cinderella Blu-Ray DVD Party is going to be the BEST ever! All the way home Megan talked about the party and I planned in my head how it would go! I can not wait for my girls to get home from school so I can show them everything I got and we can start planning together!
I will be back to remind you about the Retailtainment event on October 6, 2012 and then come show you my party and how it went with a house full of princesses!
Get your copy of Cinderella on Blu-Ray DVD at Walmart starting October 2, 2012 and don’t forget to download the Royal Ball App! Make this a time that your daughter’s memories are magical as she transforms herself to a world where she is a beautiful princess!
