Disney Junior Summer Programming Highlights + Make your Own Pirate Wooden Sword with Cardboard

Disney Junior

Are you enjoying the summer so far? We are loving the sun and being able to go to the beach multiple times a week. So many fun things to do outdoors!

This summer Disney Junior has some fun-filled programming for the little ones and they featuring family Saturday Night Movies. Keep reading for some more details!

Jack and Neverland Pirates

It’s a Pirate and Princess Summer

For the months of July and August, watch an episode of Jake and the Never Land Pirates followed by Sofia the First – every weekday starting at 6:30pm ET.  One of my son’s favourite shows is Jake and the Never Land Pirates so this is exciting!

Plus new episodes will air every Monday so don’t forget to set your PVRs! And if your little ones can’t get enough of pirates and princesses then check out DisneyJunior.ca to find fun summer games and activities online.
