The Angry Birds Movie 2 in 4DX

We were so excited to learn that Regal opened a 4DX theater in Irvine! 4DX is a fun, immersive way to see the latest movies in theaters, offering a multi-sensory experience that brings audiences into the film. 4DX connects the audience to the story and characters through motion, vibration, water, wind, snow, lightning, scent, and other special effects, perfectly synchronized to the visuals on-screen.

4DX Theater

We watched The Angry Birds Movie 2 in 4DX at Regal Edwards Irvine Spectrum and it was the most fun we’ve had watching a movie in some time! Since this is one of the newest 4DX theaters to open, we experienced all of the effects from the film including tropical breeze, lush scents, water fall effects, and lightning. 4DX is fun, but it also really helps to keep our family engaged in the film. Watch a clip from the film in 4DX to get an idea of what you will experience.

Daily Happy Hour Menus at Catal and Uva Bar Tue, 20 Aug 2019 06:45:00 +0000 Disneyland has become increasingly known for their creative dining experiences. From the Little Wagon corn dogs on Main Street to the world-famous Dole Whip, eating your way through Disneyland can be as exciting as Soarin’ Over California or speeding through a haunted gold mine. There are so many incredible places to eat throughout the resort, but my favorite way to start and end a day at the parks is at Downtown Disney. Breakfast at Catal Restaurant is a delightful, hearty way to fuel up before hitting Galaxy’s Edge, or wine down during Happy Hour at Uva Bar and Cafe. Both Catal Restaurant and Uva Bar and Cafe recently debuted their Happy Hour Menus, along with Wine Wednesday specials, which offer tremendous value on exquisite dishes.

Consideration provided by Catal Restaurant and Uva Bar and Cafe.

Daily Happy Hour at Catal Restaurant

Catal Restaurant offers Happy Hour specials daily from 3 pm to 5 pm, including $10 off their Mega Cocktails (normally $45 each). You’ll also enjoy select $9 cocktails and discounts on craft beers, wine by the glass, and sangria.

Every Wednesday, “wine down” at Catal with ½ priced bottles of wine and pitchers of sangria. Featured drinks include an extensive list of sparkling, white, rosé, and red wines from all over the world, a dry German Riesling and a smooth Spanish merlot.

Happy Hour Sliders

Disney Descendants 3 – Printables Thu, 15 Aug 2019 12:36:32 +0000 The transition from kid to tween is an interesting one. My daughter went from watching Doc McStuffins to Disney’s Descendants seemingly overnight. She was only six when she watched the first installment, but quickly grew an affinity for the characters. One year, she even dressed up as Evie. Descendants 3 is the third movie in the franchise, and now available on DVD.

Consideration provided by Disney.

Disney Descendants

Disney Descendants follows the stories of the teenage children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar, and Cruella de Vil as they adjust to life outside of their island prison. The success of the franchise led to the spin-off series Descendants: Wicked World, Descendants 2, and Descendants 3.

Ben and Mal Descendants

Descendants 3

Descendants 3 continues the story of the teen sons and daughters of Disney’s infamous villains. As friends, they wrestle with whether or not they have inherited the evilness of their parents.

Audrey and Mal Descendants

It is “VK Day” as Descendants 3 unfolds. Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay (aka the Villain Kids) cross the barrier and return to their birthplace, the Isle of the Lost, to bring four deserving Villain Kids to the coveted Auradon Prep where they have a chance at success and happiness. Fair-minded Mal knows that she must permanently close the barrier to the Isle of the Lost, fearing that nemeses Uma and Hades will wreak vengeance on her new home, the idyllic kingdom now ruled by her love, King Ben. But closing the barrier means that new VKs, nor anyone, can enter the Isle, including their parents. But a dark force still threatens the people of Auradon, and Mal and her friends must face their biggest challenge yet.
