Disney+ subscribers can also enjoy discounted Resort rates on select dates as well.

Do you enjoy a classic story with a bit of a twist? Coming to Disney+ on May 13th is “Sneakerella.” This film is described as, “Set in the avant-garde street-sneaker subculture of New York City, Sneakerella is a high-energy, music-driven movie that puts a contemporary twist on the Cinderella fairy tale.”

“El is an aspiring sneaker designer from Queens who works as a stock boy in the shoe store that once belonged to his late mother. He hides his artistic talent from his overburdened stepfather and two mean-spirited stepbrothers who constantly thwart any opportunity that comes his way.”

“When El meets Kira King, the fiercely independent daughter of legendary basketball star and sneaker tycoon Darius King, sparks fly as the two bond over their mutual affinity for sneakers. With a little nudge from his best friend and a sprinkle of Fairy Godfather magic, El finds the courage to use his talent to pursue his dream of becoming a ‘legit’ sneaker designer in the industry. El is now ready to lace up and dream big.”

Rescue Rangers

We have been awaiting the return of our favorite pals, Chip ‘n Dale. This Disney+ original film will only be available on Disney+ starting May 20th.

I (Donna) loved watching the Rescue Rangers when I was growing up. I’m not sure who is more excited for this comeback – me or my children. Okay, it is probably me.

“A comeback 30 years in the making, Chip ‘n Dale: Rescue Rangers catches up with the former Disney Afternoon television stars in modern-day Los Angeles.”
