Disney Dailies Arrive for FreeTime Unlimited on Alexa

Written by

The world of Alexa is still somewhat foreign to me as our family does not yet have an Alexa enabled device. For those that do, however, there's some fun new content - particularly if you have kids who are Disney fans. Launched this week, Disney Dailies is a new kids skill for FreeTime Unlimited on Alexa with jokes, fun facts, and all-new sketches set in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ award-winning film ZootopiaDisney Dailies delivers new content every day, building an amazing collection of voice-enabled experiences. Kids will hear knee-slapping jokes with Mickey Mouse and Daisy Duck, learn brain-teasing fun facts that intertwine Disney stories with science, art, and history, and will be treated to a huge suite of all-new sketches and stories that show kids “What’s up?” with their favorite characters. But that's not all...

New Character Alarm Chimes: All-new Disney alarm chimes are available today, so kids can start the day with Elsa or hear a reminder to brush their teeth from Moana. The new chimes feature characters from award-winning films including Pixar Animation Studios’ Coco, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Moana, and more. 

New Disney Stories: With Incredibles 2 out in theaters now, Disney has updated their Daily Stories to include stories from Incredibles 2, Doc McStuffins, Wall-E, Moana and more.

Be sure to also ask for Alexa’s thoughts on the long-awaited sequel. Just ask: 

  • “Alexa, who’s your favorite Incredible?”
  • “Alexa, where is my super suit?”
  • “Alexa, not every superhero has powers, you know.”
  • “Alexa, words are useless!”

If you've got Alexa, looks like it's definitely a good time to start asking it some Disney questions!
