Be Our Chef—Friday, May 8 on Disney+
My family LOVES this fun family-friendly cooking show hosted by Angela Kinsey. There’s a brand-new episode available TODAY titled “Anyone Can Cook.” Watch as the Perez and Wells families square off to create their own version of the Ratatouille dish. Both families also have an opportunity to explore the French Pavilion at Epcot to test out the culinary wonders of the park.
Elena of Avalor—Friday, May 8, at 1:30 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel
We also have a new episode of Elena of Avalor. This version called “Sweetheart’s Day” is available starting at 1:30 pm on the Disney Channel. In the episode, Armando (voiced by Joe Nunez) celebrates the special day by coming up with an idea to impress Marlena (voiced by Latin GRAMMY® Award-winner Gaby Moreno), only to accidentally cast a spell causing the entire town to sing. Along with Moreno, Kether Donohue guest stars as Flo.
The Parent Trap (1998)—Saturday, May 9, at 5:30 p.m. ET/PT on Freeform
This Disney classic was directed by Nancy Myers and features Lindsay Lohan at the height of her Disney career. It tells the story of identical twins who meet for the first time while at Summer Camp and hatch a plan to reunite their parents. The film also stars Dennis Quaid as the father Nick Parker with Natasha Richardson starring as their mother Elizabeth James.
Freaky Friday (2003)—Sunday, May 10, at 9:40 a.m. ET/PT on Freeform
It’s a double-dose of Lindsay Lohan with this classic tale of a magical mother-daughter switch. Directed by Mark Waters, the 2003 iteration of Freaky Friday follows the strained relationship between single mother Tess Coleman (Jamie Lee Curtis) and her teenage daughter Anna (Lohan). After a night gone wrong, the two wake up to discover they have switched bodies. Freaky Friday also stars Harold Gould as Grandpa Alan, Chad Michael Murray as Jake and Mark Harmon as Tess’s fiancé Ryan.
