Happy Monday everyone! We gotta discuss what happened at the box office this weekend. Hey, anything to make Monday a little better! Topics this week (including parent movie reviews- you gotta know if these are safe for kids, right?! Right!) Klaus Ford V Ferrari The Irishman And... I've got an unpopular opinion on the now Golden Globe-nominated The Irishman. Just because it gets awards, doesn't mean you have to watch it. Ahem. Remember how I said it's ok to like what you like? Mmmmhhmmmm... 
Star Wars. Walt Disney World. Enough said.  Okay, so not *enough* because we've got to fangirl a bit about the newest attraction opening at Disney's Hollywood Studios, The Rise of the Resistance.  On the show today is Amiyrah Martin, co-host of The Star Wars Moms on Facebook and one of the biggest Star Wars fangirls I know.  She's been on the ride- multiple times- and encountered her boyfriend Kylo Ren--- and lived to tell the tale. She shares a non-spoiler review of what you can expect when you head to Black Spire Outpost and Batuu this year.  Oh and she answers the big question: what about that drop on The Rise of the Resistance we keep hearing about? The attraction opens on December 5, 2019, at Walt Disney World and January 17, 2020, at Disneyland.  Find Amiyrah on Twitter and Instagram and follow along as she covers the opening day of the newest Star Wars attraction at Walt Disney World.  Podcast Episode: We Live On Batuu Now Is Rise of the Resistance For Kids?

There is nothing like that WOW factor of walking onto Main Street, USA and seeing Cinderella Castle in all her glory. That, my friends, is Disney magic- and something to celebrate. Welcome to the "We're Disney People: What Do You Mean There Are Other Vacations?" mini-series where we fangirl the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. We're talking about each park in a separate podcast episode, so make sure you listen to all 4 to get the whole picture. And let me know which park is YOUR favorite (Twitter @noguiltlife or leave a comment at On each episode, I'm joined by the Disney obsessed as they talk about why they love the parks. This episode covers Magic Kingdom and we're chatting with Lindsey. You can find her blogging at or Dapper Disneybounding through the parks! Score Extra FastPasses: 
This week we're fangirling HARD when it comes to the Disney Parks. Walt Disney World Resort has 4 theme parks, each with a different point of view and vibe- which means we love them for very different reasons. And a side rant about the people who judge childless people from loving Disney. Judge all you want- cause you're wrong- and no one's sharing pixie dust with an attitude like that. So there. 2nd in the series is Hollywood Studios. It hasn't always been worth the time (c'mon, you know it's true!) but Hollywood Studios is making big moves. From half-day park to full-day fun, the Studios invite you to play big at the movies and it's just getting better. So it took 30 years and a massive transformation including Toy Story Land and Star Wars Galaxy's Edge? We're not going to complain!

All fangirls have a place they love the most and we're no different around here. Disney is pretty much it. And thankfully I'm not alone in my Disney Parks love. Lisa and Theresa join in the Disney World fangirling to talk about their favorite park: Epcot. Lisa calls it home, Theresa says it's all about community. Patty maybe just comes for the margaritas? Look... la Cava. Enough said. Take a walk with us through the Epcot and The World Showcase. Where you'll find great food, culture, and 2 Mexicos. Oh wait- nope, just 1. There's a tiny debate about new Epcot vs old Epcot, but spoiler: we all make it out as friends. Drinking around the World: Epcot Festivals: Find Theresa blogging at  Find Lisa blogging at
This week we're fangirling Disney Parks and we're starting over in Walt Disney World. Don't worry, Disneyland, you're coming soon!  Animal Kingdom: the last park opened, the last park to fangirl in this Disney series. It's not my favorite, but it does have a couple of amazing things in its favor including Everest, Everest and... well, Everest. If you thought I was going to say Pandora, well, you might be new here. Ha!  Plus the details in this park are AH-MAZiNG. Fangirling Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World with Amy from Stay Close to Animal Kingdom at The Animal Kingdom Lodge:  
Happy Monday everyone! Thanksgiving is almost here- and that means all the holiday movies are primed and ready. Topics this week (including parent movie reviews- you gotta know if these are safe for kids, right?! Right!) Knives Out I gotta say it: I loved this movie and just about everything about it. But is it safe for kids? I have thoughts on that, parents. You can always tell when I really love a movie because it gets multiple articles out of me. See below if you want more Knives Out in your lives! Chris Evans in Sweaters (And Other Knives Out Knitwear) Knives Out Parent Movie Review Sharpest Quotes From Knives Out Knives Out Spoilers Without Context (You won't get these until you see the movie, so don't worry about being spoiled!)
We're all in this together... Look, I may not have been the target audience for High School Musical when it came out, but once a Wildcat always a Wildcat. This is a top 5 franchise for me and I will never turn down a chance to sing and dance with Troy and Gabriella. My guest today is Shannon Entin who you can find podcasting on Stinger TV and Movie Podcast. She writes on The TV Traveler and Stinger Universe and we're of the same mind: HSM 4-Eva! Is High School Musical: The Musical: The Series holding its own for us? Take a listen and see how we feel about the new Disney+ series with the ridiculously (AWESOME) name.
Happy Monday everyone! We gotta discuss what happened at the box office this weekend. Hey, anything to make Monday a little better! Thanks for joining the No-Guilt Fangirls Podcast Monday Movie Minute for November 18, 2019. Topics this week (including parent movie reviews- you gotta know if these are safe for kids, right?! Right!) Topics this week (including parent movie reviews- you gotta know if these are safe for kids, right?! Right!) Frozen 2 Parent Movie Review Frozen 2 Press Junket  Charlie's Angels- and Kristen freakin' Stewart Y'all, I loved K-Stew in this one. And it's been a long time since I've been able to say that about her. Don't read the drama on this movie; women, this is 2019 and we're better than all that. Most of the complaints are men who want their 1970s Angels back... and that's pretty much all you need to know about all that.  I've seen it compared to Ghostbusters: guys, that movie wasn't good. This one? This one is. I mean, not great, but good enough.   Totally cannot compare and lump together as "women for the sake of women in film" because Charlie's Angels 2019 is NOT that movie.  Or at least, not totally that movie. Because, sure, there's some of that- and that's not a bad thing, yo!
Tania and I are great friends, but we don't agree on everything. I like to think that's what keeps our friendship spark magical. Errr, or something like that.  But what we do agree on without hesitation is that Kristen Bell deserves to be in The Good Place. She's our fangirl topic of the week since we just got back from the Frozen 2 Press Junket. Tania's Frozen 2 Kid-Friendly Review Patty's Click Bait Frozen 2 Review (I kid, there's good info in here!) The Frozen 2 Press Junket and Sing-A-Long. True story; we sang with the cast to Bryan Adam's Heaven. Because... why wouldn't that happen?!  
*This was supposed to publish last week, but with some travel, it never happened! So here's a bonus Podcast Episode this week- which works since it's about Lady and the Tramp (and you can watch this on Disney+ starting in a few hours!) This one's kinda a mish-mash of subjects, but they tie in together. Take a listen and you'll see why- it makes sense, I promise.  As my guest today, I have Andria, a brand new DVC Member.  She got off the DVC Disney Cruise Line voyage in October and had some sweet surprises to share about her voyage: there were nightly gifts tons of characters Disney cast member and entertainment interviews and panels the first audience to see Maleficent 2 the first audience to see Lady and the Tramp from Disney+ And those last two are why I knew I had to have her on the show!  Here what a Disney purist and HUGE dog lover had to say about the new Live-Action Lady and the Tramp coming to Disney+ on November 12.  No spoilers! 
Happy Movie Monday, y'all! This one is a little different- so make sure to read the show notes for all the details. I just got back from LA where I was an attendee of #thegeeklyretreat (check the hashtag on Twitter if you want to see all the deets!) As part of the retreat, we saw a lot of movies. A LOT. My brain's a little on overload, tbh.  I can only review Playing With Fire for you at this time, but I can share initial reactions to Noelle & Frozen 2.  Is Playing With Fire something your kids can watch? My Parent Movie Review will let you know!
*Interrupting Lady and the Tramp coverage for Stranger Things Day. Because it's November 6 and that's the day Will Byers went missing. Dun dun dunnnnn....!  Relive a little 80s nostalgia with us today   Originally published July 3, 2019 Is it wise to bring your husband on the show? If your husband is mine, who also happens to be as nerdy about the same fandoms as me, then YES. Plus he just really makes me laugh! As you can guess: Stranger Things happened, y'all. I finally got past episode 1. And yes, I am full on obsessed with this show. Stranger Things: you've got a new fangirl. Today I have my husband, Rob Holliday, on the show to talk about how totally awesome the 80s really were. He's been a Stranger Things fanboy for years. We talk the music, the clothes, the legendary 80s actors, phones on the wall with chords and the arcade. I'd appreciate it if you'd check out my Patreon page- and maybe consider supporting the content created here. 
Everybody's Special or No One Is Last year I had the incredible experience of visiting Savannah, Georgia and the set of Lady and the Tramp. We met the dogs (oh yes we did!) and the actors, director, producers and the delicious craft services table. Look, writers gotta eat too. And that was some fantastic lunch, I'm just sayin'!  Lady and the Tramp Set Visit Lady and the Tramp Review One of the highlights of the trip was interviewing Yvette Nicole Brown (Aunt Sarah) and Kiersey Clemons (Darling). For 15-minutes they shared their stories of being in the movie, getting the roles, and what it means to be lovers of dogs and babies.  And Yvette drops some truths about working in Hollywood, choices she's made- and now I'm one of her biggest fangirls. I think you'll get on board too when you hear what she has to say! 
Monday Movie Minute has a different look this week. First up: talking Lady and the Tramp coming to Disney+ on November 12. IT'S TIME, YALL! More Disney+ show reviews can be found on Now Streaming Disney Plus Podcast. Come check us out!  Lady and the Tramp Set Visit My guest is Tania from and we are FINALLY able to share about our experience visiting the Lady and the Tramp set in Savannah. Y'all- that was a year ago. Ha! We also had a screener of the movie and give a non-spoiler review for the movie. I also watched Doctor Sleep this week- and have some thoughts on this one. This is the follow up to The Shining and continues the story of Danny Torrance. Doctor Sleep Parent Movie Review As always: we cover if kids can/should see these movies and the reasons why.
Last fall I spent some time on the set of Lady and the Tramp in Savannah. We've been under embargo for a year- but finally- all the goodness from this experience can be shared! During the visit, we interviewed Oscar-winner and production designer John Myhre in Lulu's nursery. He shares a host of behind the scenes nuggets about the creation of this special room where one of the pivotal scenes takes place (spoiler alert: action from the original movie is mentioned) Lady and the Tramp Review Lady and the Tramp Set Visit in Savannah
