The “Aladdin” cast includes: Two-time Oscar® nominee Will Smith (“Ali,” “Men in Black”) as the Genie who has the power to grant three wishes to whoever possesses his magic lamp; Mena Massoud (Amazon’s “Jack Ryan”) as Aladdin, the hapless but lovable street rat who is smitten with the Sultan’s daughter; Naomi Scott (“Power Rangers”) as Princess Jasmine, the Sultan’s beautiful daughter who wants to have a say in how she lives her life; Marwan Kenzari (“Murder on the Orient Express”) as Jafar, an evil sorcerer who devises a nefarious plot to unseat the Sultan and rule Agrabah himself; Navid Negahban (“Homeland”) as the Sultan, the ruler of Agrabah who is eager to find a proper husband for his daughter, Jasmine; Nasim Pedrad (“Saturday Night Live”) as Dalia, Princess Jasmine’s hand maiden and confidante; Billy Magnussen (“Into the Woods”) as Prince Anders, a suitor from Skanland and potential husband for Princess Jasmine; and Numan Acar (“Homeland”) as Hakim, Jafar’s right-hand man and head of the palace guards.

Wine Review: 2016 Kir Yianni Akakies Sparkling


I recently received two bottles of 2016 Kir Yianni Akakies Sparkling wine from Greece for a media review. I am a huge fan of wine's from Greece and was happy to find this special delivery.


The deep pink color and tiny bubbles is a welcomed sight as you pour a glass. You then pick up the scents of strawberries and cherries. The flavor is crisp and dry. There is a slight hint of sweetness with the first sip that lends itself to more complexity with each subsequent sip.

This wine pairs nicely with a wide variety of foods including Asian dishes and of course Mediterranean dishes. I choose to pair it with a lovely seared salmon with mashed potatoes and steam spinach. But you cannot go wrong with pork, spicy dishes or dishes that are vegetable based. Even on its own, the wine would be perfect to enjoy during a relaxing evening at home.

The 2016 Kir Yianna Akakies Sparkling is another example of a fine Greek wine and would be an excellent place to start your exploration of Greek wines.

*Disclaimer: The wine was sent for media review purposes but the review is strictly my own opinion.*

Vehicle Review: 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT - Food and Adventures at Disneyland!


Time to check out the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT! I love driving smaller vehicles and was excited to drive the Hyundai Elantra GT! The 2-18 Hyundai Elantra GT was beautifully redesigned and I love the cascading grille and the vertical LED running lights.


Took an early drive down to the San Diego area to pick up a friend. The drive was amazing! The 2.0L DOHC 4-cylinder engine supplied plenty of power to handle the Southern California freeways! You get good gas mileage with 24 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway.  Put the 2018 Hyundai Elantra into Sports Mode and you may never get out of the car! The large 17-inch alloy wheels grip the curvy foothill roads on the way to my friends house.


The style package on the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT gives you blind spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert, two of my favorite safety features on any vehicle. You also get the side mirror turn indicators, proximity key with push button start, leather wrapped steering wheel and gear shifter, power driver's seat and heated front seats.


Time to load up the trunk which is huge for a small car! So much room for all of your luggage and more!


The layout of the cockpit is surprisingly roomy and filled with tech that larger cars have.


Awesome to find a panoramic sunroof! One of the unexpected finds on the 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT! This comes in the Tech Package that also includes full LED headlights and taillights, leather seating surfaces, electronic parking brake, the Qi wireless charging pad for compatible smartphones, ventilated front seats, auto-dimming rearview mirror with BlueLink, HomeLink and Compass and carpeted floor mats.


Not that I need any navigation tool to help me find which way it is to Disneyland! But we are almost there! I love the large 8-inch infotainment touchscreen that has both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay across all trims.


We reached Disneyland and it was time to enjoy a Teddi Beara Lavender Sparkler which tasted like lychee and was absolutely delicious and refreshing!


We picked up some reading material as well! The second volume of Tales of The Haunted Mansion came out and was a must buy after reading the first one and how amazing it was!


Then it was time to eat and it was time to try a secret menu item, the Galactic Style burger from the Galactic Grill in Tomorrowland! Think of it as a tasty cross between an In N Out animal style burger and a McDonald's Big Mac! Amazing and delicious, a must have!


When you close down Disneyland you can get a cool photo like this in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle all by yourself!


And just as important is a photo on a nearly empty Main Street!


The 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT came in at $27, 460.00 as tested. A solid, fun-to-drive hatchback with great tech and safety features makes this a vehicle worth looking at!

Snacking In The Parks: Beer Floats from Clarabelle's


It is always fun to find new food discoveries while visiting The Disneyland Resort. My friend and I stopped in to get ice cream from Clarabelle's but saw that they are making beer floats!


As you can see from the sign they are offering 3 types of alcoholic beverages to turn into floats! Henry's Orange Hard Soda, Coney Island Hard Root Beer or Guinness Extra Stout are your options!


We opted for the Henry's Orange Hard Soda and the Coney Island Hard Root Beer and both were delicious! We also loved that they use vanilla ice cream on a stick to place in the cups!

At $9.99 we will definitely be back for more!
