New Disney Games for XBox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS and Online

Disney Online and Disney Interactive Studios have released their summer games for some good old fashion family game time. Well, maybe not old fashion... more like karaoke and video games based on Disney movies.
Sound good?

I'll show you around the party I was lucky to attend! The room was filled with TVs and games. Along with each game was the game designer to explain the best features of each game.

Nick spent a lot of time playing the online game ToonTown with Philip(above).
Thanks for all the tips, Philip!!!

Here's Nick with the new Cars Online game expert. Thanks for the cool hat, dude!
Radiator Springs here we come....

Split Second was Nick's favorite game by far. Available now for XBox 360 and PS3.
See the fiery explosion on the screen in the picture above?
That would be Nick having a blast, (i know) playing Split Second.

Here is a quote from when I asked him to write a review on this game.

"Split Second a breath taking action game with driving, destroying and amazing tracks. You are competing against the best drivers in the world. It is totally fast and fun." -10 year old gamer Nick

Disney Fairies Online at Pixie Hollow

You can invite Tinker Bell and her pals at Pixie Hollow into your home with the click of your mouse (pun intended). Disney online makes it easy this summer to entertain your kids safely online.

My favorite part about Disney Online is there is not gaming system required. Any where you have access to the internet, you can play in Going to grandparents? Going on a trip? You can play with your fairy when you arrive at your destination. She's always just a click away..... Go ahead what are you waiting for? Create your Fairy and Fly
