Walt Disney World Weekly Scoop

Everybody’s favorite galactic pal – the “Guru of Gross-Out,” “the Maker of Mischief” – now stars in “Stitch’s SuperSonic Celebration,” a live stage spectacle (grand opening May 6) in Tomorrowland that celebrates everything worth celebrating around the universe in honor of “Galaxy Day.”  This interactive, retro-futuristic musical revue features an animated version of Stitch interacting live with Magic Kingdom guests.  The show also stars Tip Trendo, “celebritainer” party host extraordinaire, the Galactic Girls, Tip’s deep space diva back-up dancers, a pair of hip-hop robots run amuck, all underscored by a space-pop soundtrack that will rock the cosmos!  Several show times daily.
Floats, a cast of Disney characters, stilt walkers and more “move it” down Main Street, U.S.A. accompanied by high-energy tunes and an open invitation to guests to come join the fun during performances of “Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It!” street party.  Near Cinderella Castle, Mad Hatter, Genie, Lumiere and Sebastian – the life and light of the party – pop out of four huge boxes that dominate the floats.  They join about a dozen other Disney characters headed by Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse to mix and mingle and dance in the street with Magic Kingdom guests during a 12- to 15-minute party that takes place three times daily.
New music, new costumes and changes to some of the floats are part of the afternoon Magic Kingdom parade, “Celebrate a Dream Come True.”  The procession through the park is an update to the former “Disney Dreams Come True” parade with more pauses – during which party dancers perform to get guests into a celebratory spirit – and with a grand marshal in the lead role of the procession.

The Pirates League sets sail in Magic Kingdom June 29
Calling all scoundrels, rogues and ne’er-do-wells – Captain Jack and the crew of the Black Pearl want YOU.  Starting in late June, the Pearl drops anchor in Adventureland for The Pirates League, recruiting and training park guests of all ages in the scurrilous ways of buccaneers.  Each guest checking in at the plunder-filled recruitment office gets an official pirate name.  Next step is the Muster Station where – after applications of beards and eye patches, scarves and scars, earrings and gold teeth – the new recruits leave their old identities behind.  Past a hidden portal and into the treasure cache, the new shipmates speak the pirate oath and have their official “pirate portrait” taken before being turned loose on an unsuspecting Adventureland – and no doubt feeling right at home at the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction.

Cirque Du Soleil Weekly Scoop

New Circue Du Soleil comes to Orlando

Cirque Du Soleil Saltimbanco Some 25 years later, Carmen Ruest’s will return to Orlando with latest project bigger than ever. Back in the 70’s, Ruest was performed on stilts in Quebec before La Nouba ever existed. At that time, Club Des Talons Hauts (High Heels Club) was formed becoming known as Cirque Du Soleil.

Now, twenty five years later, Cirque Du Soleil will celebrate it’s 25th anniversary with 5 shows in Tampa including a debute at La Nouba downtown Disney. This time, when Cirque Du Soleil comes to Lakeland, Ruest herself will direct the Saltimbanco Arena Tour. This will be a first-ever world-class show according to analysts.

Saltimbanco which means to “Jump the Bench” will coming to Lakeland for 5 shows. Being less technically advanced, “it was easier to adapt” said Ruest. Saltimbanco debuted in 1992 and later reached stardom in 2007.

Surrounding a common village theme, today people are leaving rural areas and moving to urban settings reflecting the global trends of the time. With so much crime in the cities today, Ruest thought it might be nice to reflect the big cities with positive vibrant colors.

A show for the whole family, Saltimbanco will cause guests to face the future as well as transform their thoughts. With 47 artists from 19 countries, the show offers a whole host of diversity including jugglers, eye-level acrobatics, and solo bike acts. Transforming the show into a traveling arena was no small challenge while maintaining the show size of the stage.

Disney will sponsor a special 25th anniversary show in June for those who want to see it. If you would like to see this amazing performance, please contact our office toll free at 1-877-406-4836 or click this link to purchase your discount Cirque Du Soleil Tickets!

They have everything from fast waterslides to a children’s area with pint-sized raft rides. You can also catch  the 6ft. waves in the Surf Pool and also snorkel with the real sharks over at the Shark Reef. No extra cost for this! Some of the definite must-do’s in their 56 acre topsy-turvey, sun-drenched Water Park are:


Ketchakiddie Creek:   This is a water play area filled with fun water features and kid-sized slides– a perfect place to play for little ones who are under 48 inches tall.

Castaway Creek:  This is a meandering stream that circles the park– a mild, relaxing ride for Guests of all ages. This is a great place to sip a cold beverage and take a nap!!!

Crush `n` Gusher:  This is one of my favorite rides at Typhoon Lagoon. It’s a gravity-defying, multi-rider, coaster-like raft ride with gushing jets of water–a thrill for big kids, teens and adults.
