Inside Out ReviewInside Out Review
June 19, 2015
"Inside Out," The latest offspring from the mind of Pete Docter, looks inside the head of an eleven-year-old girl and observes the nature of the emotions that drive her, as well as their changing relationships to her and to each other.

The film's setting, a young girl named Riley, is an essentially happy-go-lucky child, living a relatively bucolic life in Minnesota, when her world is abruptly upended by a move to San Francisco. Working frantically to try to keep her charge happy, Joy, along with the core memories that support different personality facets, manages to get flung far away from headquarters into the vast reaches of Riley's mind. Lost along with her is Sadness, a generally disregarded emotion, who has begun to be subject to strange and unnerving impulses that threaten to undo all of Joy's efforts.

Harambe Market - ReviewHarambe Market - Review
June 11, 2015
Located in the Africa section of the park, Harambe Market mimics the atmosphere of an open-air marketplace and serves dishes that would be considered African street foods. My family and I recently tried some of the offerings and were pleased with what we sampled. And, when we found the perfect shaded table, we enjoyed the atmosphere of the market, too.
