Pirates of the Caribbean Reboot!?

Rumor has it that Pirates of the Caribbean will have a reboot replacing everyone’s favorite pirate Captain Jack Sparrow with the new and improved red head Redd the revamped character from the Disney attraction Pirates of the Caribbean. Redd used to be auctioned off to the pirates and they would say “we wants the redhead” but with the update, she is a fierce pirate named Redd. For the possible reboot of Pirates Redd travels through various ports selling rum and collecting money.

Although there is no script Disney has had an early talk with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick the screenwriters of Deadpool and Zombieland about writing the reboot of Pirates. Honestly, I hope they pick up where they left off because the last one was left on a cliffhanger and I don’t think it will be as good without Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow but it is also Disney so no matter what I am going to give it a chance, even though I would really like to find out what happened with Henry Turner and Carina Smith along with Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner. What are your thoughts on this rumor? Let me know in the comments below!

Disney Festivals Cookbook!

I like to cook but I love to eat! One of my favorite times to go to the parks is when they host the food festivals, so when Disney announced their new cookbook filled with festival recipe I knew I had to buy it immediately! In the book there are 50 recipes from 6 different festivals which have been put together by Pam Brandon and the Disney Chefs.

When I got the book in my hands the first recipe I looked for was the Jalapeño Popper Mac and Cheese with Bacon because my mom and I absolutely fell in love with and honestly wished we would have went back for more. Thankfully that recipe was in the book and now I get to attempt to make it as good and as magical as Disney!

Aside from having the book of magic, as I like to call it I am super stoked to test out all these recipes at home. For Thanksgiving and for Christmas I will be using some of these delicious recipes and hopefully if I can get a series with my mom and grandma where we cook a new recipe every Sunday together because I think it would be amazing and fun. Would you buy a Disney cookbook? If so, what one?

13 Nights of Halloween 2018: Day 4

One thing I also love about Halloween is sitting by a fire, with a blanket, my pups and a really good book but for this time of year it has to be a bit on the spooky side. So here are my favorite Disney Halloween Books!

Tales of the Haunted Mansion:

  • There are three books, Fearsome Foursome, Midnight at Madame Leotas, and Gim Grinning Ghosts.
  • It was published July 19, 2016 by The Disney Book Group. It’s really good and I suggest reading to it or they do have audio books available and I have both versions but I like to put on the audio version while Im doing homework because I feel like I am doing homework in the Haunted Mansion.

Hocus Pocus and the All New Sequel:

  • Written by A.W Jantha is another spook read of I hope everyones favorite witches. The story does start out b telling the original story of Hocus Pocus and makes its way to the new story. I absolutely love it and have re read it three times since it first cam out July 10, 2018.

The Halloween Tree:

  • Written by Ray Bradbury and Gris Grimly originally published in 1972 tell the story of the meaning of Halloween. I absolutely LOVE this book and one of the reasons why I chose this book as a Disney book is because In Frontierland they have an Oak tree they started decorating with lights and jack o’ lanterns in 2007 for the books 35th anniversary called the Halloween Tree. Ray Bradbury was also a huge fan of Disney and even wrote screenplays for Something Wicked This Way Comes (1983) and The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit (1999). So the books is technically part of the Disney family.

Have you gotten a chance to read any of these books? Let me know your favorite spooky book.
