My boys preferred gaming console is PlayStation or Nintendo Switch, however, I’ve been interested in getting an Xbox console since it’s original launch in the U.S on November 15, 2001. Therefore, I was super excited when Microsoft invited me to a special event where I received a first look & walkthrough of two Disney games remastered for the Xbox One (Disneyland Adventures & Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure). What’s more, now that I own the Xbox One S it is my preferred gaming console.

Joy love all things Disney therefore, it was honestly exciting watching presenters Jorg Neumann, Head of Production, Microsoft Studios and John Dongelmans, Marketing Director, 1st Party Games give us a detailed walkthrough is their newly remasters, Disney themed games Disneyland Adventures & Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure. After the event attends Xbox One S console, a copy of Disney themed games Disneyland Adventures & Rush: A Disney Pixar, Super Lucky’s Tale and Zoo Tycoon with a few other cool goodies. After the presentation, Xbox hosted a day at Disneyland and I was able to spend a magical day at the park with Matt ( my husband) and Joy (our daughter).
The next day Matt and I spent time playing our new Xbox One S console with our daughter Joy. Now, I use to be a gamer in college however, I shyed once the industry started to grade the controllers because I felt it complicated my gameplay. Therefore, I didn’t buy my son’s a game console till they were about 10 years old. However, I am in love with the Xbox One S console, the functionality of the controllers and felt it was simple enough for Joy to play the games listed below on her own.
