but first you really need to check out the new TV spot “Return of an Avenger” for MARVEL'S THOR: THE DARK WORLD, that first aired on MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. my newest new favorite TV Show! 



About the movie and the power of Marvel:

In the aftermath of Marvel’s "Thor" and "Marvel’s The Avengers," Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos...but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.

Starring: Chris Hemsworth, Natalie Portman, Tom Hiddleston, Stellan Skarsgård, Idris Elba, Christopher Eccleston, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Kat Dennings, Ray Stevenson, Zachary Levi, Tadanobu Asano and Jaimie Alexander with Rene Russo and Anthony Hopkins as Odin, Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” is directed by Alan Taylor, produced by Kevin Feige, p.g.a., from a story by Don Payne and Robert Rodat and screenplay by Christopher L. Yost and Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, and is based on Marvel’s classic Super Hero Thor, who first appeared in the comic book “Journey into Mystery “ #83 in August, 1962.

“Thor: The Dark World” is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Craig Kyle, Alan Fine, Nigel Gostelow and Stan Lee.

Must Have Monday Review: New Trent PowerPak Xtreme and the Dual Port High Speed Wall Charger

Click for more Magical Merchandise

This week's magical merchandise is all about power…on the go!

Today I am happy to review the New Trent PowerPak Xtreme - (12000mAh) Rugged Series NT120R and the New Trent IMP90C, dual usb wall charger. The latest additions to my travel gear bag.
Need more power for the gadgets in your life?
Over the past year or so I have on many occasions run out of battery life on my iPhone. During hurricane Sandy, traveling, camping, conferences and while touring the parks. In airports the charging stations always seem to be filled and the seats next to them are at a premium.

Spooktacular Halloween Treats at Disney Parks

It's time for goblins and ghosts and goodies galore! Let's have a look at some of my favorite spooktacular goodies that can be found in the Disney Parks for Halloween.  

The Main Street Confectionery in The Magic Kingdom had us queued up to treat ourselves to these festive Pumpkin and Candy Corn Cookies, Rice Krispie Mickey Heads and Ghostly Cupcakes during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party last year. They went quickly too. We stopped back later in the evening and they were gobbled up.



Mickey's #NotSoScary Halloween Party cookie inspiration! #DIY #waltdisneyworld

The basket full of Minnie Witch Hats and Pumpkin Cookies were in Animal Kingdom as were the Spiderweb lollipops. Mickey Pumpkin Treat or Treat Popcorn buckets were everywhere hanging on food carts and displayed in shops. They make a great souvenir and come in handy while collecting candy during #MNSSHP too.

What's your favorite Halloween treat?
