The Easter bunny came early to the Parker house and, as you can tell from Lily’s picture, the kids were pretty excited. When a lovely little package from Walt Disney Records arrived on my door step last week, I knew the four latest CDs from Disney Music Emporium would be the first thing I packed for our road trip. Thus these CDs became the first early addition to our Easter baskets!
Growing up, I have so many memories of listening to Disney cassettes in the car with my family on road trips. Love that I now have Into the Woods, Frozen, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Disney Junior DJ Shuffle 2 for our collection! Get your family read to hop into spring with these fun collections! Check out our favorites and be sure to enter to win all four below.
I’ve been ever so patiently waiting for this musical to come out on DVD (March 24 – it’s out NOW!) so Into the Woods was my clear favorite of the four CDs. Perfect to listen to while I waited for the movie to come out! Musicals have had a special place in my heart since my high school drama days. The story telling, the orchestra, the unforgettable lyrics and performances – I love them all. I’ll admit to you that I’ve had Meryl Streep’s voice in my head singing “Greens, greens, nothing but greens” every morning as I’ve made my green smoothie this week.
This ultimate mix tape CD from the movie Guardians of the Galaxy made it to the top of my husband’s list. Personally loved the cover and the role the mix played in the movie as a gift from the main character’s mother on her death bed. Songs that got the thumbs up from the Parkers included Hooked on a Feeling by Blue Swede, I Want You Back by Jackson 5, and Come and Get Your Love by Redbone. So many memorable hits! My children begged to listen to Hooked on a Feeling on repeat during our road trip and I happily obliged.
7 year old Lily’s Favorite
Pretty safe to say that most little girls would be THRILLED to find a Frozen DVD and soundtrack in their Easter basket. This CD was the first Lily requested (aka begged) to listen to in the car. Frozen had the most sing alongs and we may have belted Let it Go and Do You Wanna Build a Snow Man? a time or two. Adore the vocal talents of Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, and Santino Fontana. My new favorite is the quirky Fixer Upper – there are some great one liners in there!
5 year old Cort’s and 3 year old Kyler’s Favorite
My little boys thought that the Disney Junior DJ Shuffle 2 was fun, fun, fun, fun! Everyone in the car couldn’t help but sing along with that line from the first song. This collection of songs from all their favorite Disney Junior shows was definitely a crowd pleaser with the littles. Two by Two and Believe in Your Dreams from Sofia the First were most often requested by Lily for repeats on this CD. The boys giggled every time during the Captain Hook Destroy the Book song from Jake and the Neverland Pirates. Definitely a fun CD for your collection and a great listen for the car.
All four CDs can be found at Disney Music Emporium. I am excited to be teaming up with Disney music group and giving one lucky reader all four of these CDs. Cross your fingers and enter to win below!
