Do you play Disney Infinity? It was our must-have last year and it’s been the most-hours-logged video game for the Morgan household ever since. The basic idea is that it’s an adventure video game but you buy real character toys to go along with it, so it’s this action-ish, Disney-ish, collectible-ish mess of goodness and since we like all of those things we had to have all of the Disney Infinity stuff ever. Walmart carries it all in the video game department (even the toy-like character pieces).

When we heard they were coming out with Disney Infinity 2.0 we were all “TAKE OUR MONEY” before we even had the details. And then we found out that the new game includes Marvel super heroes like Captain America and Iron Man. And then we found out there was going to be a Guardians of the Galaxy super heroes expansion. And then the world imploded from all the awesome.

Got it! Looove it!

We did a Guardians of the Galaxy pizza party to celebrate the first night we had the game and a bunch of family came over to try it out. We did classic video game food: pizza, cheese crackers, sugary treats, and “Groot beer” (root beer + dry ice = I’m the coolest mom ever). I also added some salad because we’re all grown up and can no longer survive on pizza and soda alone.

I did run into a bit of a hostess problem when I couldn’t get people to stop playing the game long enough to eat. If you’re going to be doing a Disney Infinity + dinner combo, I suggest you get dinner going first so everything doesn’t get cold while people are running around trying to find bonuses.

I got them to take a break eventually.

It didn’t last long, before they were back to playing the game. I wasn’t sure how my youngest brother and sister would do since they don’t have a video game system at their house yet and there’s always a bit of a learning curve, but they navigated it all very easily and were excited about the Guardians of the Galaxy characters.

My older “little” brother switched out when he finally got a turn so he could play with the Avengers characters. He’s a huge Captain America fan, but the basic set doesn’t come with Captain America. He was still happy to fly around as Thor and Iron Man, but I think he was pretty quick to pick up that other expansion. (You also have to get the Hulk separately. I guess there’s a limit on how much awesome you can put in one box.)

After checking out the Marvel super heroes for a while, we switched over to Toy Box mode, which is my personal favorite. It’s an open-play mode where you can run around doing various activities and it mixes all of the characters together in this play area that feels like you’re walking around a Disney park (complete with area music!). I like it because it’s fun to see all of the different Disney characters together. It will be even better when the next set of Disney characters comes out next month!

    What a cool idea! It looked like so much fun. We don’t have this game or any other new game. We stopped using our gaming system so we’ve lost track of what’s out there. We also do themed dinner nights but haven’t done one around a game. I love that you themed this around Guardian’s!

    Confession: I haven’t seen it yet. I love Chris Pratt, though, so I’m planning to when I have a spare second. Promise! SUCH a cute party! #client

      Oh, you’re in for a treat when it comes out on DVD! It’s the funniest of all the Marvel movies and Chris Pratt is perfect. And yummy!!

    I’ll confess, we have three gaming systems and hardly any of them get used. But with the Marvel characters added to DI, I kind of want to play now! Which system do you guys use to play DI on? I’ve heard that some are better than others, but that was also when it first came out and I’m assuming they’ve worked some of the kinks out since then.

      We use the Xbox 360 and we’ve been using that consistently for 6+ years now (having replaced it once). In fact, that’s pretty much the only thing we use unless we want to watch a Blu-ray. We use the xBox to watch Netflix, DVDs, and Amazon Prime because we don’t have cable. As far as the game goes, I haven’t noticed anything glitchy with the system but that might be because we’re so used to it!
