Disney Junior’s Pirate and Princess Summer

Okay, all you moms of little kids, prepare for cuteness: Disney Junior’s Pirate and Princess Summer programming begins June 10!

Sofia the First Disney

You’ll get new episodes of Sofia the First, which will be shown daily. Did you know that it’s cable TV’s #1 series for kids ages 2-5? It’s true! The show features Disney’s first little girl princess. You can catch it on weekday mornings at 9:30 Eastern, and also on weeknights at 7.

No, boys aren’t being left out. All summer long, new episodes of “Sofia the First” and hit series “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” will alternate with Friday premieres Friday, June 14 – Friday, August 23 on both Disney Channel (9:00 a.m. ET) and Disney Junior (5:00 p.m. ET).


Looking for a fun summer project? Beginning Friday, June 14, you can log on to DisneyJunior.com/Summer and upload your child’s photo dressed as a pirate or princess for the chance to be featured as the “Pirate/Princess of the Day” on Disney Junior.


Among the premieres are an episode of “Sofia the First” featuring Princess Jasmine, Friday, June 14 (9:30 a.m. ET); a pirate genie in search of a treasure wishing well on “Jake and the Never Land Pirates,” Friday, June 14; Red Jessica and Beatrice Le Beak on “Jake and the Never Land Pirates,” Friday, June 21;  Sofia’s energetic Buttercup troop leader on “Sofia the First,” Friday, July 26; and Miss Nettle, a new fairy teacher who Sofia quickly learns is up to no good, on “Sofia the First,” Friday, August 23.  All airtimes are 9:00 a.m. ET unless otherwise noted.

All this cute is making  me wish I still had a preschooler. Enjoy the summer days with your little ones — and with Disney!

  1. Disney is great at weaving magic! May it continue forever!!

  2. Nice blog. I found it looking for Mad King Ludwig, but lots of good stuff here.

    Disney. I recently read Cinderella Ate My Daughter by Peggy Orenstein. Being nearly Berkeley types we’re trying to avoid Disneyfication. The content isn’t as bad as the predatory commercials in between and then all the co-marketing that goes along with it. We’re not completely successful but it’s a bias we practice.

    Yesterday Paloma, 3 1/2, told me she didn’t have a Princess Baby. I think I asked why not. She said, “My parents won’t buy it for me.” As half of the parents’ group I didn’t know that. “Oh,” I said and we continued on home.

    I’m not sure how long we’ll get away with this.
