Disney's Magical Fireplace

It has finally arrived - our Magical Fireplace DVD.  I saw this in a Disney Movie Rewards e-mail and knew it was something we just had to have.  Since we do not have a fireplace, but we do have a 57" TV, it actually looks quite nice.  If you haven't seen this DVD before, it is a virtual fireplace.  Throughout the 58 minute movie, Disney characters, fireworks and Mickey Ears randomly pop up.  From Mickey and Minnie to Cinderella's Pumpkin Coach to the the cast of Up and plenty of others in between, it seems the entire span of Disney and Disney-Pixar movies is represented.

At the DVD menu, you have the option of listening with special effects or music.  The special effects version will give you all the same character appearances as the music version, but instead of Christmas carols, you can hear the crackling of the fire.  If you choose the option of listening with music, it has a wonderful selection of Christmas carols, some even sung by our favorite characters!

My kids LOVE this and have asked to watch it already this morning.  Hayley even said that now that we have a "fireplace" we can hang our stockings in front of it.  I think this will be a great backdrop for our Christmas day festivities.

For more information, you can check out the official website at Disney's Magical Fireplace.  Do you have this bit of Disney Magic for your Christmas celebrations this season?

This is truly a magical fireplace because it will never need chimney repairs! I'll have to get my own copy.

I received this as a gift last Christmas but didn't have the opportunity to open it yet. Now after reading your review, I'm putting it on tomorrow morning when we continue to hang ornaments! Thanks for the review :)
