Getting into the #HalloweenTime Spirit in Cars Land at #Disneyland #Cars3Bluray

Disney California Adventure

On October 9 – 11 I attended a Disney Press Event. My hotel and airfare and meals were taken care of while I was in L.A. Opinions and observations as well as recaps and such are all my own. This post will also contain some affiliate links to Amazon.com.

On the very first night of my #ThorRagnarokEvent adventure we loaded up into a couple of shuttles and headed from the hotel to Disneyland to spend the evening. Our mission, to check out everything going on in Cars Land. This year is the very first year that Cars Land has been converted to a Halloween theme, or rather Haul-O-Ween, as part of the overall park HalloweenTime theme. Cars Land did things a little differently and it looked fantastic. I have a ton of photos from the experience which was made all the better with our own personal Disneyland guide who took us all over the Disney California Adventure Park and also into Disneyland Park. We were in for an amazing night of fun.

We were broken into three groups according to what type of rides we did or did not want to do. Mostly it was for anyone who did not want to do the Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission Breakout which was made into Guardians of the Galaxy: Monsters After Dark. I was in the group that opted not to ride that particular ride. I just know that I can get a little queasy on rides like that and I wanted to have the best night I could because who knows, It may take another 15 years for me to come back again. Yeah, it has been 15 years since I’ve been to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure. Allison and I went when we were out for a wedding. A lot has changed in that time.

One of the things that changed was the creation of Cars Land. This is something that wasn’t there back then. The first Cars movie hadn’t even been released back then. Cars was released in 2006. When it was I made sure to get every single one of the character toy cars to save for the kids. When they were old enough to appreciate them I gave them my collection. They have been Cars fans ever since. Andrew and Eva even came with me to a Cars 3 sneak preview screening of the movie in Boston this past June. Now Cars 3 is about to hit Digital (Today 10/24) and Bluray (11/7) and we can enjoy the movie all over again. I personally thing it is the best of the three movies in the series.

Review: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Mario Rabbids

I received a copy of the new game from Ubisoft called Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle for the Nintendo Switch. I got it for free to play with and review. I can legitimately say, I’m loving this game!

I totally love puzzles and complex games. I enjoy trying to figure out problems and the best way to solve them. I also enjoy things that are funny. The game is easy to start playing. You start out with Mario, Rabbid Peach and Rabbid Luigi. These Rabbids characters have crossed into the Mushroom Kingdom and they are causing all sorts of crazy havoc. The Rabbids have discovered an Augmented reality helmet, the SupaMerge. With it they can combine two things and make something new. They can combine a lamp and a flower to make a flower lamp. The Rabbids take the device to the Mushroom World. There the device malfunctions and the kingdom gets torn apart. Your quest it to put things right again. You are also aided by an artificial intelligence named Beep-O.

The Game is filled with all the humor that you would expect from the mischievous Rabbids. Where Mario and his friends are kind to everyone, the Rabbids do their own thing. There is one hilarious moment where Rabbid Peach knocks over a large pile of blocks that a Rabbid Donkey Kong is atop of. As he falls she snaps selfies of him in the background. Rabbid Donkey Kong is a fun boss to take on.

I’ve gone through 9 of the worlds so far and each gets a little harder than the next. Along the way you can upgrade your characters skills, weapons and secondary weapons. My copy of the game came with some DLC content of additional pixel based weapons. Some weapons bounce the baddies off the screen others cover them in sticky honey to prevent them from getting away. The game has already won a ton of awards, too. Take a look at this video. Continue reading Review: Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
