Get your Moana crafts and recipes ready because the film is out and ready for your family to have an epic movie night. Moana is available on Blu-ray and Disney Movies Anywhere as of March 7th. Thanks Disney for giving me a free movie night kit to host an in-home viewing of Moana. All opinions are my own.
Moana presents the perfect opportunity for a family movie night involving everyone. The focus theme of Moana is family and connecting with ancestors, so it makes sense to gather the whole tribe! When involving family of all ages in your movie night, it's wise to have activities planned in case anyone gets restless. Plus, it's just fun to do movie-themed crafts and eat treats inspired by your favorite flick.
We received a Google Chromecast to view the movie. This little gadget allows you to “cast” the movie over different devices and use your phone as a remote. For example, if the kids start a movie at home, transfer it to their tablet if you need to run to the store. Meltdown avoided. Sync the Google Chromecast with different apps to work together. We used the Disney Movies Anywhere app to view this digital download of Moana. This way of movie-watching is ideal these days.

So, we ate deep dish pizza, but I really regret not making something a bit more fitting. This is a movie that will be watched a lot more than once, so we will remedy that next time.
