Take Disney Junior on Every Adventure

Disney Junior appIf your family is anything like mine then chances are they are big fans of the new Disney Junior Channel (see my ode to Guess How Much I Love You: The Adventures of Little Nutbrown Hare) and their charming family programing.

However, did you know that the fun of Disney Junior is available in a variety of ways for your child’s enjoyment? It’s true.

For instance, there are two FREE apps available that kids are sure to love:

Mickey Mouse Club House Road Rally is an “appisode” available for iPad only, and Jake’s Never Land Pirate School is an app available on the magical trinity of iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.

This is perfect for us as we’re a family that loves our technology, and it is nice to have something trusted like Disney apps for the kids to play when they earn time on the device of their choice (yeah, they’re earning it, so far so good).

Also, Disney Junior WATCH makes full length episodes of its popular shows available online at and via the Disney Junior WATCH app on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch.  It’s free, too.

We like free.

If you are a Comcast Xfinity subscriber then you have access to premiere content, including a live feed of the network online and through the app. Following the live feed, current shows will be available “on demand”. That means you can watch programs, or portions of programs, at your convenience, which is nice. You can even watch one show on the TV while someone watches another on their favorite device. Everybody wins!

Shows are available for 10 days on Disney Junior WATCH (fans who aren’t on Comcast can contact their cable provider to ask for the service via the website or the app).

If you haven’t had a chance to check out Disney Junior and all the fun (and free) apps that are available, then you are missing out! Fix that.

In the meantime, please enjoy this picture of Jake, Captain Hook, and my kids (+1), which was taken IN REAL LIFE. That’s right, we’re like Never Land Pirates.
