What I've been watching

Anyone who knows me, knows that I rarely watch TV.  I'd rather be reading, writing, running, chasing dogs, or creating something. However with a little more time on my hands then usual, I've decided to check out some shows on Disney Plus!


Can you believe we've had Disney Plus since December and I've never once turned it on till last weekend? Yea, me neither!
My husband was the one who subscribed to it and I just assumed it was just all old Disney movies. Boy was I wrong!

The first series I watched was called Be Our Chef.  This is the cutest family cooking show. The two families are given a theme related to a Disney movie and the families have to create a meal to represent it.  I think one of  my favorites was the bread bowl (for soup) that was created to look like Cinderella's pumpkin coach.  The meals are judged by a real Disney chef that works at one of the Disney properties and then the winning family will go on to compete against another family. The winning family will win a Disney Cruise!   I haven't found out who won yet though because only 3 episodes were available when I watched. Perhaps I will check back this weekend to see if any more were added.


The second series I started was The Imagineering Story. This, my friends has been the story I have been waiting for for years! No, I did not know this series was being made, but it was one I've always hoped for.  It is the story of how all the Disney parks came to be (even the international parks) . Even when you think you know a lot about Disney, there will still be more "inside stories" that will surprise you. You'll even learn about some parks that were planned out but never brought to life. I've only watched three episodes so far (they are an hour long). I don't know how many episodes there are but I am hooked! I'll definitely be watching more this weekend.

Have you watched any of these episodes? -M

  1. Imagineering sounds cool, even though I'm not a big Disney fan. Alas, we do not have that channel (in fact, we don't even have cable).

    My husband watches some cooking shows, though!

  2. I think I'd like that Imagineering show. I first visited WDW in 1976, right after it opened. Growing up in small town Illinois, we were amazed at what we found! And that was only when they had the Magic Kingdom. It's incredible what they've done.

  5. I havent seen Be our Chef - I'll totally need to check out that one.
    I've been LOVING Encore - with the people who were in their high school musical doing it 10-20 years later. Awesoome.
    I've also been into the new wood working competition on there. My dad had me working in a wood shop when I was young so I love it

  12. I haven’t watched these! We’ve been watching ALL the Marvel movies. My husband and son could watch everyone a million times and never get sick of them ��

  13. My youngest daughter would love the chef show but we don't have Disney Plus. The show about how parks came to be would also fascinate me. It's just so grand, to a whole new scale, and I always wonder who has this big of an imagination and all the people and intricate details that go into not only creating, but also maintaining those parks.
