Hakuna Matata with Disney Life

We love all things Disney – as you may have heard several times on my blog. But then, who can help but love Disney? With it’s magical productions from since I was a child, Disney has been wowing audiences the world over and keeping the magic going.

I am thrilled to be able to re-watch those lovely Disney movies with my children, those I had watched when I was younger and introduce them to characters that I love.

I have a number of favourite DVDs at home but recently, my being able to share with my children more of the magic was made possible by the introduction of Disney Life.

I was recently invited to trial Disney Life with the children and I replied without delay with a huge – ‘Yes Please!’

It looks good so how did we find it?

We Love It.

In fact, this opportunity came at the right time. We were invited to the screening of The Lion Guard: The Return of the Roar – a continuation to The Lion King series and to get us even more excited, we decided to watch all 3 films. Thanks to Disney Life, this was made possible and since I could stream it onto my telly from my phone, we watched in on our Smart TV.

I have created different profiles and each of the children got to choose their own favourites. We’d have liked to see a few more characters there but I’m sure that these will soon be available.

Having access to all the Disney content at our fingertips (literally) means that the children can keep reliving the magic.

It is perfect for on the go as we can download the films/music in advance if we like.

With Disney Life, I know that the children are safe and not watching content that is not meant for them.

If they are learning other languages too, it is perfect for them to practise their skills as you can access the books in 5 different languages.

I’m enjoying introducing them to The Jungle Book and others and when you look at the older movies, it’s amazing how animation has developed.

You can trial Disney Life for free for a month and after that there is a monthly charge of £9.99 Given the amount of entertainment you have at hand, it is good value for money.
