Taste of ZooTopia : The Movie Night Experience


My boys are a lot like my husband (and father-in-law) in that they love movies. I’m so-so on a movie but we’ve slowly been growing our collection with some of their favorites. One that we’re definitely adding is Zootopia. When we saw in the theaters earlier this spring, I admittedly missed a bit of it so I have been looking forward to its DVD release date of June 7! It was even the second movie of the year to cross the one billion dollar mark for box office sales and there’s talk of a sequel.

If you haven’t seen it, here’s more about the movie:

From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes a comedy-adventure set in the modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia. Determined to prove herself, Officer Judy Hopps, the first bunny on Zootopia’s police force, jumps at the chance to crack her first case – even if it means partnering with scam-artist fox Nick Wilde to solve the mystery. Bring home this hilarious adventure full of action, heart and tons of bonus extras that take you deeper into the world of Zootopia. It’s big fun for all shapes and species!

We loved the movie and the message (check out the lessons Mamalicious Maria took from the movie as well)  but even more we loved that the actual city of Zootopia had so many different habitats and climates within one city. Because of our love of travel, we thought it would be cool to experience the different areas without leaving home.

Luckily for us, we see food as a way to travel the country as well and loved these recipes that Disney has provided to help us travel through Zootopia, inspired by the movie. With these simple movies, your family can have a true movie night experience.

Here is the BunnyBurrow Carrot Cake inspired by Judy Hopps’s hometown.
