Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse DVD Review

How do companies know exactly what kids want and when they want them? That was completely rhetorical because clearly they make the big bucks for a reason! Well, now that Halloween is over and Thanksgiving is approaching, it seems there's only one thing on kids' minds right now- Christmas. And, what better way to get a kid excited about a new Christmas movie? That's right, put a ton of different Disney characters in it so they're guaranteed to like at least one! That's what happened with my kids, at least.

In this full-length movie (that was originally debuted in 2001), a huge snowstorm leaves Mickey, Minnie and many other friends stranded, inspiring Mickey and his guests at the House of Mouse to whip up an impromptu party that includes instilling a “Humbug”-quacking Donald Duck with the holiday spirit. Everyone shares their home movies and even grumpy Donald starts to smile when they realize the best Christmas of all is the one you share with friends and family.

Disney Mickey’s Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse stars more than 35 Disney characters including Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Cinderella, Ariel, Belle, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Bambi, Dumbo, The Lion King and more.

*The Sounds of Christmas – discover the secrets of movie sound effects with a
Disney sound effects artist. This also includes a special version of “Twas the Night
Before Christmas.”

*Sing-Along Songs “Deck the Halls” and “Sleigh Ride”

Family Time Factor: It is tolerable for adults to watch, but I don't think it would appeal to many children over 8, possibly 10.

MOTR Grade
: B (My kids sat through it, but didn't ask to watch it again. I had to bring it up.)

Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse is now available on DVD!!!
