Things to do this Memorial Day Weekend in Southern California

Memorial Weekend is here and there are so many fun things to do this weekend. Here is a list of some of the best and free or almost free things to do with the family  Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy!

Disney Interactive and giveaway!

Last week I was invited by the folks at Disney Interactive Studios to a special blogger event to preview and to play with some fun games that will be hitting the market soon and games that are currently available on I packed the kiddos in the car and we headed up for an incredible evening.

We were able to check out a couple of really fun games but there were some that my little ones became obsessed with. We really loved playing all of them but if we had to pick our absolute favorite it would be Disney’s Sing It Family Hits. This game comes with a microphone and features Disney Movie favorites It’s sort of like a Karaoke contest but featuring your favorite Disney songs. My kiddos loved singing “You got a friend in me” from Toy Story. I think they “competed” with each other at least five times! It was hard getting them to stop playing and allowing others to have their turn. I can’t wait for this game to be released. It will be released later this summer, sometime in August. It will be available forWii and Playstation 3 systems.

Our second pit stop was playing Pixie Hollow, highly recommended on D2 Boost. This online game had this mama hooked! I loved creating my own fairy and my own world. I could honestly play this game for hours. I think this is one that both kids and parents can partake in. The best part is that you can play this game for absolutely free! If you want to give this game a try, head over here.

My daughter was able to also play Camp Rock on DS and that game was absolutely one of her favorites from the night. We also had a chance to check out Club Penguin which is also available online and that you can play the basics for free.

We had an incredible night and now I can share a bit of that night with you with a fun giveaway. I have Disney’s Alive in Wonderland’s Wii game to giveaway along with a month premium upgrade to Pixie Hollow and a 6 month premium membership to Club Penguin. All that you have to do is leave a comment telling us your favorite Disney game or why you would like to have this game. You have until Sunday May 30th to leave a comment. Good luck!

Disney’s The Lion King at the Orange County Performing Arts Center

Did you know the Tony Award winning, Disney’s The Lion King, is currently playing at the Orange County Performing Arts Center? I watched this show when it first came to Southern California almost 10 years ago. I love this show and I can’t wait to take my kiddos to this fantastic show.

Disney’s The Lion Kill will play at the Orange County Performing Arts Center from May 26th to June 13th. Tickets start at $25.75 and this week only on a weekday performance  you can purchase Rush student tickets one hour before the performance for $20. You can call the box office on the day of the performance to verify if there will be student tickets available.

The music is incredible and this would be an incredible treat for the entire family.
