Disney has released a new family fun app named Disney Shout! This fun app will have family and friends laughing and guessing wherever they are – whether its on a road trip, at a party or even in a long line!

We played Disney Shout! with our two sons, ages 9 and 13, and, although it is made for ages 6-8, they had lots of fun with it. Players can gather around, hold up their phones and guess Disney characters, famous scenes, and match secret Disney pictures.

The app includes three guessing games:

  • Shout! – Listen to clues and guess the word on the card!
  • Favorites! – Guess each other’s favorite answers to comical Disney questions!
  • Spot! – Choose a spot in a picture from a beloved Disney classic. See if friends and family can guess what you chose!

We were surprised when, after a game, you are able to take a picture of someone with some super cute Disney pictures. My kids loved this!

 

This app is available on iTunes for $0.99 and a comes with the starter pack with Mickey and Friends. Additional packs, such as Big Hero 6, Cinderella, and more are available for in-app purchase.

Star Wars™ Weekends returns to Disney’s Hollywood Studios® at Walt Disney World® Resort every Friday, Saturday and Sunday May 15-June 14, 2015.

This year’s event welcomes a new show, “Star Wars: Rebels,” new locations for autograph sessions and merchandise, and several Star Wars luminaries making their first hyperspace jump to Star Wars Weekends.

Star Wars Weekends features more than 60 Star Wars characters roaming the theme park for meet-and-greet opportunities, a Star Wars motorcade, the “Symphony in the Stars” nighttime fireworks spectacular saluting iconic sounds of the films, event-exclusive merchandise at Darth’s Mall, Star Wars-inspired dining offerings and specialty food and beverages, interactive activities, and more.

Plus, Star Wars celebrities, including returning favorites and event newcomers, will appear in star conversations, talk shows, autograph sessions and motorcades each weekend.

Bringing his evil prowess to Star Wars Weekends for the first time, actor Ian McDiarmid, Senator/Emperor Palpatine in the Star Wars movies, will kick off Weekend I May 15-17. And, to balance out the appearance of the dark side with a beacon of light, actor Frank Oz, the voice of Yoda in the Star Wars movies, will make his first event appearance in Weekend V June 12-14.

Star Wars Weekends is included in regular park admission to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Click here for more details.
