Disney Channel’s Teen Beach Movie is the Perfect Family Movie Night

We have all been there. It is a quiet evening at home, the entire family is there and you are thinking that a good family movie would be a great way to end the day. Then you turn on the TV and can’t find a single appropriate thing on.

Thankfully networks are taking notice of this and are offering more family friendly options. The Disney Channel is one of our favorites when it comes to family friendly movies.

Teen Beach Movie

July 19th at 8pm ET/PT Disney Channel will be featuring Teen Beach Movie. This flick is reminiscent of other popular beach themed musicals such as Gidget and Beach Blanket Bingo.

“Teen Beach Movie” follows teen surfing sweethearts Brady and McKenzie who together ride the last wave of summer, one that mysteriously takes them into a classic beach party movie, “Wet Side Story.” There, it’s surfers versus bikers for control of the beach hangout… and everyone spontaneously breaks into song and dance. Now, Brady and McKenzie must try to return to present day, but their lives may be changed forever when they inadvertently alter the movie’s romantic storyline when handsome surfer Tanner falls for McKenzie and biker girl Lela starts swooning for Brady.

Teen Beach Movie is geared towards kids, tweens (ages 6-14) and their families, “Teen Beach Movie” is a breezy surf-rock musical comedy that also comes with a message for kids and tweens about the importance of believing in yourself and following your true destiny.


And to help get us in the mood for a beach themed evening, The Disney Channel sent us a goodie box filled with all kinds of stuff to get us started. It has been a rainy couple of days here in Mississippi so I figured with the lack of outside time we could all use a fun day at the beach. While Miss Stalin was napping and Genghis was finishing up his school work, I got busy and transformed our living room into a fun day at the beach.


Complete with surf board, beach ball, and a beach towel. Then we all got dressed and ready for our party. For dinner we had pineapple chicken, french fries and some veggies. I even made a beach cake complete with crushed graham crackers for the sand.


It was a great way to survive the boredom of rainy days. And we all had a lot of fun. Now I know we are ready for the airing of Teen Beach Movie. You can throw yourself a great beach party too. Just head over to the Disney Channel Teen Beach Movie website and you can download your own party kit that includes recipes, themed games, activities and music videos.

Some of us are more ready for the beach than others.

I received promotion items to host my own beach themed party and to tell you about the upcoming Disney movie. All opinions and thoughts are my own.
