Please Pardon the Walt Disney World Pixie Dust

With Walt Disney World Resort in the biggest construction and demolition time in their life, one project stands out to me the most. What used to be called Downtown Disney has transformed into an entertainment and dining Mecca of Orlando. Its new name is now called Disney springs. It had gone to a few name changes but Disney Springs is the one that stuck to the wall. They have actually created what looks like a natural Floridian stream that is supplied by crystal blue and green water from somewhere I have yet to see yet.

One of the biggest transformations yet has to be the old Fulton’s crab House. I was just down there the other evening and the old sign in for sod has been removed and work has started in earnest.   The new name for the restaurant will now be called paddlefish. It is set to open in the fall of 2016 and will serve up fresh seafood, steaks and the catch of the day. Sticking with the seafood fair there will be such dishes like lobster corn dogs, Alaskan king and queen crab, local favorites like Florida stone crab and guacamole made right at your table with lobster, Chili’s, cilantro, lime and tortilla chips.

One of the coolest things is that you will be able to build your own boil and pick your own seasonings to your liking. Recently I was down and noticed a new fish and chips store located beside Raglan Road. Looking at what the people were eating as I walked by looked absolutely delicious. There is nothing like a good pint of Guinness Stout and some fish and chips. The Disney Springs area is probably the best new hangout for folks who like to pop in and have a drink and a small bite to eat. Disney really took care to make sure that guess enjoy their waterfront property that was solely neglected during the downtown Disney pleasure island years.

One of my favorites has to be Maury Moto’s. It’s a beautiful new restaurant that overlooks the new waterways that run through Disney springs. If you can be so lucky to sit outside on their upper deck, you will have some very beautiful scenery while you eat and drink. I think one of the coolest additions the Disney has made is to incorporate live entertainment peppered throughout the Disney Springs area. You can grab some gelato, or a cold beverage while sitting and listening to beautiful Spanish classical guitar players or sit back and be amazed by futuristic music that is being played on some of the weirdest instruments you have ever seen. This is a must stop for anybody who is visiting the Orlando area while on vacation

Epcot Set to Bring Three New Additions to Their World Showcase

With all of the expansion of work going on at Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida, one of the most exciting ones come to mind. The one I am most excited about is at Epcot and will incorporate three new additions. The biggest debut will be Sorin’ Around the World. Is very popular attraction has been down for the past year while new footage was being recorded and IMAX. If you remember the old ride it took you to such places as California Florida and even Disney itself.

Located in the land pavilion guess we’ll still experience flying over beautiful scenery of land far away. I hope they still incorporate the smells like they did when he flew over the orange groves. I’m sure Disney will not disappoint. From what I have seen, they have spared no expense at bringing high definition video to it screams. The next will be over in the Norway pavilion and will have the all new frozen after ever after. This will be the actual very first attraction inspired by Disney’s movie frozen that was a blockbusters we’ll be able to walk the streets of Erin Dell as they take in the sites sounds and smell of this fairytale land.

Afterwards guess can stop by and visit with the two sisters at the Royal summerhouse. Recently you have been able to visit Anna and Elsa at Disney’s Magic Kingdom, but with lines reaching up to three hours long, Disney saw fit to expand this meeting greet to Epcot. Norway was due for a facelift and I’m glad that they are putting frozen ever after within its very popular pavilion. Many people disagree with me and feel that Epcot should not be turned into a Magic Kingdom or Hollywood studios.

But I welcome the new addition and can’t wait! I feel Norway is a perfect place for an addition like this. If you remember their ride, the Maelstrom, it was a little Gloomy to say the least. I love the ride but hope that Disney brightens up the experience and brings happy joy joy feelings to adults and kids alike.

Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios Set for Star Wars Greatness

Lately things of gotten a little bit noisy at Walt Disney World Orlando’s – Hollywood Studios in Florida. Recently the theme park has launched a new nighttime spectacular called Star Wars eclectic spectacular fireworks show. Just like at the Magic Kingdom, Hollywood studios will have nightly shows that will showcase fireworks and pyrotechnics alongside videos of the Star Wars movies as well as synchronized to music that go along with the Star Wars music.

I was able to see this from the parking lot last week and the finale was one of the best ones I’ve ever seen. Mixed with the iconic colors of Star Wars red and blue, the fireworks towered over the theme park with spot beams that created would look like light sabers in the sky. Disney has been dropping some serious money into their newly acquired Star Wars theme is at the park. Rumor is a huge expansion is coming and that is the reason why the Lights Action Motor Car show was shut down about a month ago.

All of this comes after Disney purchased Star Wars from George Lucas a few years back. With the movie the force awakens setting box office hits records; Disney was quick to jump on the scene park in merchandise bandwagon. Anytime you go over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios you will see thousands of small children and even adults carrying their Jedi or Sith light sabers. There are a few new stores over there to purchase these items at like the new Star Wars launch bay and there is even one down at the new Disney Springs in the old downtown Disney area.

The other expansion that has been under the radar has been Toy Story. It is getting a big facelift as well and is reported to be growing in size to accommodate a whole land for itself. Not to long ago the Art of Animation studios were shut down in order for this Toy Story land to have space enough for the new land.

Disney has big pockets so I am sure that anything they bring moved to Hollywood studios is going to be absolutely amazing

Good Things Come to Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Lately at Walt Disney World animal kingdom there have been signs of new life. Recently they have come out with a new water show over by their roller coaster Everest called rivers of light. About a month ago they had a media event where they had industry professionals come out and see firsthand what Disney has been up to. First and foremost I would like to say that I am absolutely thrilled that Walt Disney World animal kingdom is staying open late. It was always a shame to have to leave at around 5 o’clock in the evening when things were just starting to get good. Being at the theme parks at twilight is such a beautiful time.

Now that you can stay later, the animal kingdom’s tree of life puts on a new show where projectors project high definition colors and images onto the tree. I was able to see a small sample not too long ago and it was so beautiful that it almost brought me to tears. There are so many beautiful areas at Disney’s animal Kingdom, going to be absolutely amazing to stay well on into the night. They haven’t yet worked out all the kinks yet with the rivers of light show, but from what I have seen it is going to look absolutely amazing.

The park is also going to have a few new events called Harambe wildlife party and Discovery Island carnival   As well as bringing the new jungle book movie to life with the jungle book alive with magic water show which will bring to life the Jungle Book’s Baloo and Mowgli their new discovery river each evening. Probably the biggest addition to come will be the new avatar land that has been in construction for the past couple of years. You can see it from the parking lot as it sits right behind the rain forest café at the entrance to Disney’s animal Kingdom This project should be done in the next few years and is slated to be one of Disney’s biggest accomplishments to date.

I’m so glad to see is me putting their biggest efforts forward at this very unique and beautiful theme park.

Are the New Disney Special Events at the Magic Kingdom the Way to Go?

Recently Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida has given its guess a special event for travelers wanting to beat the crowds and the heat. The new event is called Disney after hours and is at the Magic Kingdom. Guess are able to purchase a separate ticket and enter at 7 o’clock at night and stay until 2 AM. Almost all of the rides are open with little to no Q and free ice cream is served up throughout the event. There are no parades or fireworks but that is just a side note to having the whole park to yourself. I feel the biggest perk to this event is that they only allow up to 3000 gas and to a park that has been known to hold over 100,000 people.

The two evenings that I went there in the early beginning of the event, there were maybe only 1000 people at most. Now that the cat is out of the bag we are starting to see more people go to the event but still there is only up to 3000 people on any given night. There’s nothing like walking onto a ride that is normally two hours long and walking right up and on with little to no people in line in front or behind you. I was able to ride the seven dwarves mine train just by walking up and getting on to the ride. This is probably the most popular attraction at the Magic Kingdom. If you go first thing in the evening at 7 PM, you will be intermingled with the days guess until cast member start to a sure of them out at around 11 o’clock. You will be able to watch wishes fireworks and watch the Main Street electrical Parade.

After the parade is over you can drastically see the drop in attendees. Most people know that there is an ass special event that evening, so they start heading home or to their respective resort on Disney property. Having Cinderella’s Castle all to yourself is a very Special feeling into itself. There is nothing like the Magic Kingdom at night with no one in it as well as no cranky little kid screaming. So if you were looking to have a very special evening while visiting the Walt Disney World resort, I highly suggest taking a look at this once in a lifetime special event.

Disney World Accommodations: On-Site Vs Off-Site

Disney's Art of Animation Resort

Disney's Art of Animation Resort

There are preferences and there are needs specific to individuals and families that determine whether a particular choice is better over the other. I think the same is true to the Disney World Lodging options as well. For some guests the decision of staying at an on-site property is more convenient, others think the off-site lodging alternatives make much better vacation deals. Either of the choice has its own advantages and disadvantages. So it’s recommended to plan out accordingly and choose the one that meets your specific vacation needs.

I’m a great fan of WDW (Walt Disney World) Resort, and it would be really special for me if I can enjoy the place in accordance with my specific vacation needs. I know that planning is essential, and along with tickets and transportation, accommodation plays an important role in deciding the fate of a Disney World Vacation. In deed it’s our choice of stay (On-Site or Off-Site, at a Disney owned property or at a hotel or villa outside the Resort) that determines the kind of vacation experience we are going to have.

Often the word convenient is associated with all the decisions taken in favor of on-site lodgings at Walt Disney World today. In fact guests staying at an on-site hotel have the advantage of extra perks, such as the Magical Express that takes care of your Airport to Disney World resort or hotel transportations, the Extra Magic Hours (that offers exclusive park hours for resort staying guests only), including Free Transportation facilities between the Parks and WDW hotels. Moreover, being a part of the Resort itself, the on-site (Disney owned and operated) lodging options seem to score an edge over their off-site counterparts when it comes to proximity, themes and the favorite dining plans as well.

On the other hand, the off-site accommodations – be it a luxurious hotel, villa or a vacation home for that matter can be very handy in many special ways. First they are mostly cheaper than a Disney owned hotel room or suite and as such help you save more on your vacation. Also staying at an off-site property is seen as a great opportunity, especially if it is not only the WDW that you are looking for. Unlike the on-site lodgings, the hotels and vacation homes outside the Resort offer much better access to other Orlando attractions as well. In fact the prospects of including Universal Studios or the SeaWorld Parks in the vacation will only doubles-up the excitement.

Whether it’s on-site or off-site, choosing the right vacation-stay is important. Families with special interest need to analyze certain factors prior to finalizing their choice of hotel. Specific vacation essentials such as the size of your budget, the total number of members and kids included in your family, hotel amenities you are looking for and more are to be considered when deciding the hotel or lodging facility.

Orlando vacations are always expensive. And tickets play a major role in influencing the same. But there are many other options available to help you stay on budget. And I suggest you to visit the authorized agents and brokers for some real savings.

A Special Disney Tour Can Change Our Life as a Theme Park Fan For Sure

See firsthand how thousands of dedicated Cast Members make magic happen every day at Walt Disney World Resort.

Visiting the WDW (Walt Disney World) Parks in Florida is a dream come true experience for many. But what if the world-famous rides, attractions and shows are just not enough for you? You might have seen most of them already in your earlier trips. And now as a returning visitor you will be looking for something new, something more special and unique. Never mind! The excitement at WDW is always new and refreshing. In fact the fun takes the most unusual leap whenever you set onboard a special WDW trip. Truly, the unique Disney World Tours or Behind-the-Scene Tours are just the right alternatives in taking your Disney Experience to the next level. It seems as if you are in a different Disney World altogether. And after you have taken a tour, your views about the Parks will never be the same any more.

Whether it’s all about discovering the secrets behind the Magic or getting more friendly and intimate with the favorite attractions, joining the crew and cast members right on the sets or learning the truth about the various surprising aspects, the Special Tours are meant to experience the Mouse in a completely different format. There are tours that are very specific such as The Magic Behind Our Steam Trains Tour or something broad, such as the Backstage Magic Tour that takes you all across the Disney property and enlightens you about the Company’s rich heritage and cast-member roles. There are some that give rare access, such as the Wild Africa Trek Tour that enables you to explore the most remote reaches of the Animal Kingdom Park and more.

I think it’s worth spending a little extra for your favorite Disney Tour. All that you need to do is a little research before choosing the right one for your family. It’s to be noted that specific Tour has specific requirements, including age restrictions and more. Also reservation is mandatory to avail most of the Tours and the same can be done by a phone call to 1-407-WDW-TOUR (1-407-939-8687).

The Special Tours are also seen as great marketing opportunities by many theme park businesses today, especially in spreading the message with a more personal touch. And indeed how inspiring it’s to hear such wonderful things straight from the mouth of those passionate and knowledgeable keepers (from Imaginneers to Disney Historians to Animal Experts) of the Magic. Thanks to all the exclusive WDW undertakings in making our life as a theme-park visitor so special.

Fort Wilderness Resort – A Camping Experience Unlike Any Other

Disney Tickets

Camp Amid the Magic of the Great Outdoors

If you are a Disney camper, the Fort Wilderness Resort and Campground is the place that you must consider. I think it’s more than just a unique camping delight, nestled amidst acres of awe-inspiring woodlands, dotted with pine and cypress greens on the bank of a lake so scenic and so serene. Away from the theme park fun and fantasies, the Fort is a great relaxing alternative for Disney vacationers. Whether it’s the pristine landscapes or the awe-inspiring campsites, the unique boat rides or the trips to neighboring theme parks, staying at the Fort is always a special treat for all.

Imagine taking a soothing motor launch from the beautiful boat docks to the Magic Kingdom with the sun rising over a misty Bay Lake. Imagine eating lunch on the sunny deck or just think about cozying up in your bunk bed. Imagine enjoying the great water slide at the Meadows Pool or go zipping in and out of the lovely woods onboard the golf carts so peaceful and look so cute. I think the Fort is a great way to experience the Mouse in its rustic best. It brings to you the authentic Florida on a platter- both relaxing and entertaining right in the middle of world’s most coveted nature.

Since the beginning of the WDW (Walt Disney World), the Fort has been a special choice for fans who visited the Resort and want to explore the great Florida Outdoors without missing the Disney experience. There are also many different reasons as to why the Place has been so close to the heart of many. Some say it’s the rich storied history associated with it, others believe the attractions and the activities it offers are just amazing. I think the Fort is a great place to create memories that never perish.

WDW is definitely known for its magical rides and attractions, but there are also other things outside the parks that equally inspire us. And the Fort is one such destination that we must try. Where else one can have such diverse relaxing options then what the rustic woodland has to offer. Where else one can go biking day or night, or enjoy a horse ride or a wagon ride for that matter. I just wonder how it feels like watching the herons fly across the lagoon or the sights of those mysterious little islands. And as the canoe passes through those tall cypress trees how inspiring it’s getting lost in the quiet old days of a Florida and a Vacation Kingdom that keeps visiting us in memories since long.

Orlando vacations are always expensive. And tickets play a major role in influencing the same. But there are many other options available to help you stay on budget.

The Avatar Land That Disney Promises

Disney Animal Kingdom Tickets

Disney Animal Kingdom Tickets

Expected to open in the year 2017, the Avatar Land is undoubtedly among the most anticipated theme park initiatives that Disney World Orlando has to offer. Whether it’s the magnificent floating mountains or the interactive bioluminescent forest, the soaring banshees or the glorifying hues of blue, the Avatar Land once completed is sure to change the way we see Animal Kingdom Park today. And as the dream world of the Navis is taking shape out there (right in the middle of the world’s most fascinating wilds), there is only one thing that comes to our mind – Blue Is the New Green. In deed the lush green landscapes of Animal Kingdom will become even more special with the addition of this extraordinary world from James Cameron’s blockbuster movie.

Being able to step inside and explore the wonders of this one of a kind themed land is a dream come true experience for any. I think even the thought of Pandora as a real place for guests to see, hear and touch is enough to invoke fans’ response like never before. And the excitement is only growing since the Team (Disney & Lightstorm Entertainment) broke ground first. Today while the extraordinary Land is still under construction, people across the globe already started believing that they had visited the amazing world of Pandora.

The Avartar Project is the largest expansion to Animal Kingdom till date. Ever since the Project took off, it tends to be a topic of great interest among fans. And once completed guests will be able to experience the wonders of Pandora when they fly with banshees and explore a rich natural environment with mountains that float and interactive plants that glow at night. The concept artworks and videos released by officials as part of the project plans offer ample evidences in this regard.

Truly, it’s something that can transcend the boundaries of possibility. In the history of theme park fantasies there is hardly anything like this ever created. I think the Avatar Project at Animal Kingdom Park is if anything is the next big revolution in the theme park Industry today. If the world of Pandora comes to life as Disney promises, probably we can have something that is not less than what Harry Potter World did at Universal Orlando.

Avatar is an epic fantasy – adventure that inspires fans since the day when it hit the screens first. And its evolution as a Disney attraction today seems to bring a new kind of experience in the history of theme park entertainments today. Thanks to Disney and the team Lightstorm in bringing to life the imaginary world that had inspired millions.

Disney World Without the Rides Is Still a Magical Delight

Sit Back and Relax and Just Enjoy

Sit Back, Relax and Just Enjoy the Magic!

Ever since it’d greeted the first guest back in the seventies, WDW (Walt Disney World) Resort never looks back. Truly, the magical Orlando Resort is the most visited and beloved theme park destination in the world today. Packed with an incredible, ever-evolving array of fun and entertainment choices it brings to life the dreams of millions since inception. Its importance as a great fantasy destination needs no explanation. With wide range of attractions that inspires visitors of all ages, WDW is the ultimate place for a dream family vacation. There is no place on earth that boasts such a great list of fun opportunities that the resort has to offer. Whether it’s the Magic Kingdom or EpcotHollywood Studios or Animal Kingdom there is one thing that makes them all stand out- Magic!

Moreover, with so much to see and do at this famous Florida Resort that every visit to the place is like a new experience in itself. Whether you are visiting the park for the first time or planning a return trip with family it’s always the world’s most magical experience in the offing. Once inside guests are exposed to a whole new world of adventure and fantasies like never before. Whether it’s in the form of your most favorite dream ride or parades, special shows or events, there is no end to the amount of fun and entertainments one can have.

However, while it seems enjoying the dream rides, shows and fun activities is a must for a magical Disney vacation, there are others who also think that a trip to Disney World is equally memorable and special without the attractions. With so many other fun things and activities to see and do here that the world famous resort is not just restricted to the attractions only. One can discover the magic just by enjoying things that were sadly missed out often by many visitors. For reference while walking down the Main Street USA you can have a great time stopping by the windows and reading the various inscriptions instead. Or just walk and enjoy the sights of every incredibly-themed objects and activities happening around the parks.

I think skipping the rides and opting for a rather laid back vacation alternative at the parks is by no means a less magical experience. In fact by twisting the usual vacation itinerary with a rather unconventional one is just another exciting way to enjoy the magic in the middle of this happiest place on earth.
