Disney Tomorrowland

by Laura Lohr on June 15, 2015

tomorrowland5536a4061130cDisney Tomorrowland was released in theaters recently and a flood of fond memories washed over me. I grew up in Southern California and as a kid, we would go to Disneyland at least once a year. I looked forward to those visits and savor the magic of those visits even today. When I was a kid, Tomorrowland always fascinated me at Disneyland. Back then, there were a few attractions, such as the People Mover, Captain EO, Star Tours, Mission to Mars, Space Mountain and the Tron attraction are all memories that will forever be exciting childhood memories of innovative technology and looking forward into the bright future.

I was really excited to see Disney’s Tomorrowland movie in theaters, but I have a huge confession to make—George Clooney doesn’t make me swoon. There it is, ladies! Forgive me. I had to get it out of the way. I do like him as an actor though and I was pleased with the cast of characters. I had expectations of magic and the future in this movie. Like the Tomorrowland of my childhood, this movie had hopes of the future and childhood dreams, just as I had when I visited Disneyland in my youth.


The story is about a little boy, Frank Walker, with a mind full of ideas to make the future better, who visits the World’s Fair and discovers Tomorrowland. Frank meets a little girl, named Athena, who turns out to be more than meets the eye. Meeting Athena and going to Tomorrowland changes Frank’s life forever, but not in the way that we would expect it change him. Frank, grows up to be a bitter, sad adult, until another young girl comes into his life, many years later.


Tomorrowland is an utopian society, full of promise and fresh ideas. The story is also about a girl named, Casey Newton, who years later discovers Tomorrowland, just as Frank Walker has. The movie flashes forward to contemporary times, when Casey enlists the help of Frank to save the Earth from sure destruction. While Frank is not as full of hopes for the future as an adult, Casey still has the dreams that could save the world from its ending.


Tomorrowland is a sweet movie about believing in the future and following your dreams. Hugh Laurie is cast as David Nix, who must be stopped from destroying the Earth. Hugh Laurie makes a great antagonist in the movie and George Clooney is a great grumpy old man! Aside from its great cast of characters, the film is great for younger viewers too. I love the message of hope that this movie and that child-like optimism that is a common thread throughout the movie.

Marvel Avengers: AGE OF ULTRON

June 8, 2015
Avengers Poster

I’m not TYPICALLY a superheroes fan or “boy movies,” but I do have a confession to make. I adore Robert Downey, Jr. and I adore the Iron Man character.  I feel like I grew up with Robert Downey, Jr. and he’s such a talented actor. Admittedly, the Tony Stark, Iron Man character is hands-down, my favorite eccentric superhero of all time. So, of course, I was on board to see Avengers Age of Ultron. Avengers is great because it really is a movie that pleases my entire family (Note: It is PG-13. It may not be appropriate for smaller children.) Who wouldn’t […]

The opinions in this article are my own. I do not work for, or with, any brand mentioned in this article, nor do I have any official relationship with them. I have a relationship with GigaSavvy, for whom I create original editorial content. I have previously shared my love for Knott’s Berry Farm, basically since I started this blog, almost 10 years ago! As a family, we have been going to Knott’s for about 30 years, multiple times every year! I’ve seen my oldest nephew grow up at Knott’s Berry Farm. We have so many memories of my nieces, nephews, […]

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This Walmart Family Mobile shop has been compensated . Although my BABY is almost ten and so very independent, I’m still very protective of her and like to make sure we keep in touch throughout the day. One of the ways we do it, is by cell phone. Yes, my ten year old has a cell phone! It started the summer she went to horseback riding camp, Sea World camp, and beach camp. The camps were about 20 minutes each way, by bus, then I worried that if she got lost […]

I was invited to yoga and shopping by Athleta.  I was given a pair of compression running socks by Fitness Foundations in exchange for my honest opinion.  All opinions are mine alone. WOW! How things have changed since I last posted Fitness and Health Friday! I have been doing something that resembles consistency. I’m so very proud and excited! I finished week four of the Couch to 5k program this week and started on week 5. The  program only calls for running three days a week, but I prefer to run at least 5—so, I have! I have been running 5 […]

Athleta Yoga and Shopping

I’ve been running again since the beginning of 2015. It has been a very long time since I’ve had any new athletic wear. What I have is either worn out or it’s uncomfortable because it has become so tight. I’ve been hesitant to buy myself any new workout clothes. I want to wait until I’m thin enough. Which, of course, my logic makes no sense at all! I knew one thing though, my running tights just weren’t going to cut it. Thankfully, I was invited to an event at the La Jolla Westfield UTC Athleta store to do some shopping and take […]

DisneyNature Monkey Kingdom: Review

I was invited to see DisneyNature’s Monkey Kingdom at the local theater. All opinions are mine alone. Back in August, we saw Island of Lemurs: Madagascar in the theater and I loved it! I love monkeys and find them so interesting! I also love the Disney Earth and Disney Nature series as well. So, when we were invited to see DisneyNature Monkey Kingdom, narrated by Tina Fey, we were there! The thing I loved the most about DisneyNature Monkey Kingdom, was that this wasn’t just a documentary, this was a love story. It was the story of the underdog, overcoming all odds […]

All opinions are mine alone. #MyDataMyWay #CollectiveBias The invention of mobile data is probably one of the the most amazing as a parent! I still remember the first time we got smart phones, so many years ago, that we could use the internet ANYWHERE! Wooohooo! Times have definitely changed, now that we’re parents and cell phone safety for kids has risen to the top of our priority list. Since my nine year old started becoming more independent, like going to horseback riding camp, joining swim team, and just […]

I love a good salad. This time of year, I’d rather have salad with a refreshing glass of iced tea than spend hours in the kitchen. I love a good refreshing salad that tickles my taste buds, especially if I’m not the one doing the chopping of the veggies! Wednesday, I was invited for a taste of the Boudin SF spring salad collection with a few local San Diego bloggers, at the Balboa Mesa location in San Diego. There are three new spring salads being offered by Boudin SF and they are sure to satisfy! The best part? Each of these […]

It seems like forever since I posted on Fitness and Health Friday! For good reason, too! I finish my last dose of antibiotics today. Yikes! Ten days of antibiotics. Finally, that’s all over and now I can work on my fitness and health! I am taking my vitamins and using my essential oils. I am eating healthier. I’m going to make a difference in my health! This week, Mr. Bear and I worked hard on trying to eat healthy. Last night, we made a delicious shrimp Caesar salad. The night before, we made a turkey meatloaf and modified it to […]
