My DF loves Hercules, he searched high and low for a Hades pin to trade during our last trip. I, however, agree with you and would have to play Scarbble during the film.

The Greek festival sounds like a lot of fun. It was cool that you got to enjoy it with both of you guy's family.

Aww, I love Hercules! Megara is one of my favorite Disney characters. And I love the music from the movie.

The Greek festival looked like a lot of fun- nice job working your theme night around that!

Hercules is another of the movies I haven't seen yet, but definitely need to. A lot of people seem to really like it, I just haven't ever gotten around to watching it. I like the Greek theme for the day. Looks like it was probably a lot of fun going to the festival and eating some good food before relaxing and watching a movie.

I thought it was a pretty good movie...but didn't keep my attention (in all fairness I get distracted very easily hence the scrabble )

This weekend we are all going out to dinner together, that will be the first time we all sit down and hang out I am sure we will all get along just fine

Thanks The greek food was so good and I really couldn't have cooked anything close if we did it at home

Sorry to confuse my birthday was April 1st - right before I started the PTR

I do like that Meg is a tough and sarcastic girl The music is really catchy!

Thanks I'm taking all the credit but when Tim reads this later he knows it was his idea

It was good, it falls in the middle somewhere of my likes and dislikes for Disney movies...The greek fesitval was a lot of fun and we were exhausted when we got home, so watching a movie was the right idea

I really need to jump on this Disney movie night bandwagon - our local Greek festival is this weekend, but I don't think we will be able to make it ... maybe we can go to the diner and eat Moussaka first instead?

I like Hercules; I think it is one of the more underrated Disney films, especially when it is compared to such blockbusters as Aladdin, Beauty & the Beast and Lion King.

Hercules is a fun movie. I always like to have seen any Disney movie. I'm sure Phil is a more enjoyable Vinylmation, after having seen the movie, although I did think that Phil looked a bit mean in Vinylmation form.

Animal Kingdom Lodge - Kidani Village. Never stayed there before so we're excited! Hopefully it's a lot nicer in Disney in October than it is in VA right now!!!

You should It is a good way to both count down a trip and also see Disney movies that I haven't watched since I was little or haven't watched at all yet! That sounds like a good plan for Greek

You're right, I don't remember hearing much about it, not nearly as much as movies like Aladdin. I have still been singing the songs from it around the house

He does look really mean in the Vinylmation form, thats why I am still thinking about possibly trading him..I called him the "mean looking hairy guy from Hercules" when I opened the box up

Jungle Book and Vinylmation - quite a combination!



For our next theme night we watched




I had never seen The Jungle Book and it was so cute!! I was singing along to the movie and really enjoyed it. I can't remember what we had for dinner, but for our movie snack was Jerky...yes you heard me right!

Tim and his parents had picked up some unusual types of Jerky and we saved it for this movie night...



Sorry to all the vegetarians out there!! The kangaroo was not good....the Alligator was spicy and my favorite and the Wild Boar was yummy and that was Tim's favorite. We love to try new foods and those were interesting


We have been talking a lot of about little plans we have for our trip in October, one thing that we have never done before and are trying this trip is going to be trading Vinylmations! I love surprises, so I think trading for mystery ones is going to be what I do...Tim is more selective

These are some Vinylmations we have that we plan on trading...thank you vinylnation.net for the pics



This guy is Phil from Hercules, though I liked him in the movie he looks so evil in Vinylmation form!! Sorry Tim I am trading one part of my birthday gift!



This is Mission Space Vinylmation that Tim purchased and is thinking about trading...I hate that ride it makes me so I won't be too sad to see him go, though the vinylmation is kind of cool looking



Sorry Big Baby, but you freak me out!! I purchased 2 Toy Story Vinylmations and Tim got Rex and I got Big Baby...I made Tim give me Rex We plan on trading the baby

I will have to take some actual pictures of our small collection at home and include that next time

Love The Jungle Book...it was one of Jasmine's favorites...she always wanted to just wear her panties like Mogley (she'll kill me for this) but she was only 3

I love trying new foods and those I would definitely try!! I can't wait to hear how you do trading your Vinylmations...I have a feeling my nieces might get into that over pin trading this trip!

WHAT??? How have you never seen the Jungle Book?!?!?!

I'm just kidding... there are still several Disney classics on my list that I need to see. I just remember when I was little this one was probably in my top 5 favorites and I'm pretty sure the VHS in the cabinet at my parents' house is probably worn out. I'm glad you finally got to see it and enjoyed it.

I've never gotten into the idea of the pin trading or the vinylmations, but I'm starting to become a little bit intrigued by the vinylmations. I'm kind of thinking I might have to invest in a few of them at some point.

I bet you are going to have a lot of fun trading Vinlymations! I agree that Big Baby is scary and Phil is creepy. I bet your Rex Vinylmation is awesome; he's my favorite Toy Story character!

I'm not a big jerky fan, but those three looked interesting. It's very cool that you guys like to try new things and give them a chance. And the snack choice seemed very fitting for the Jungle Book.
