Fans wanting to see Mickey and Minnie at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will need to remember to head right after passing onto Discovery Island. The famous pair no longer reside in Camp Minnie Mickey, but instead have a new home at the Adventurers Outpost.
The location, formerly host to the Beastly Bazaar, is an air conditioned indoor retreat with a globetrotting theme that’s the perfect place for guests to great the big cheese and his main squeeze before setting off on their next big adventure. While not operational now, the location is set up for Fastpass+ once Disney’s MyMobile Magic rolls out.
The 18th Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival will return to Walt Disney World this fall with exciting new flavors and entertainment options. This year your culinary trip around the world will include tastes from the Scotland marketplace and a return trip to Brazil as part of more than 25 total marketplaces around the world showcase. Five new acts have also been added to the Eat to the Beat Concerts.
Fresh for 2013:
New marketplace debuts; favorites return – Traditional flavors with a twist will pair with beers, meads and Scotch at the new Scotland Marketplace designed by Walt Disney Imagineering. Scottish officials were so impressed with the hit Disney film, “Brave,” that they contacted festival planners about participating in this year’s festival. The Brazil Marketplace returns by popular demand with an exciting new menu following a one-year hiatus. Hawai’i is back with its flavorful Kalua Pork Slider, and Terra, which debuted last year, returns with vegan favorite Trick’n Chicken Curry.
Walt Disney World is rolling out another one of its social media efforts. This time is the beta version of the long rumored user generated content review and question site. Fans with a free account at Disney.com can review Resort Hotels, Attractions, and Dining options they experienced on their last trip to the resort. If they’re planning a future trip, they can ask a question of the community and have it answered by fans.
Both options appear to be moderated. Check out Walt Disney World Ratings & Reviews and let us know what you think? Does this replace your favorite Disney fan website or is it just another website you’ll consider visiting when planning your next trip?
One of the cool new additions to the Darth’s Mall photo opportunity section at the 2013 Star Wars Weekends is this huge model of the Rancor that Luke Skywalker fought in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. Here’s a fun timelapse video of the assembly required to set it up:
The detailed, fan-created beast was sculpted from 2,000 square-feet of expanded polystyrene foam and is ready for posing with on your visit.
Well hey howdy hey everyone! I have recently been a stranger around these parts, but now that my AP exams are done, I am ready to get back into the swing of things! So expect an announcement for the next Live Tweet soon, but right now, we are in the midst of new TV shows being announced, and ABC has put together a very interesting line-up for the 2013-14 season! I just wanted to give my thoughts on what I am looking forward to for the new season and reminiscing on this past one. Let’s get started!
Scandal…WHAT THE WHAT?! The show has been known to push the boundaries of crazy (in the best way possible), but that cliffhanger was a doozy. The show did just what us loyal Gladiators want, amazing tension, fantastic characters, and plot points that are so crazy, they make you rewind on the DVR. What were your thoughts on the finale…cause it was BONKERS!
First season of Revenge was superb, crazy dramatics mixed in with some Emily Thorne badassery and Victoria Grayson awfulness made the show a guilty pleasure that was more pleasure then guilt. Then the 2nd season came and it made a small nosedive. The Initiative?! HUH!? I dropped the show right around January, not only because of school work (the reason I dropped Nashville, though I intend to catch up this summer!), but because the show skewed TOO cuckoo for me. I have heard the season finale was fantastic, so let me know your thoughts, but I’m not sure if I should catch up or leave it dead in the water, like an Amanda Clarke imposter. (HEY-OOO!)
Once Upon A Time…In Wonderland is a very enticing pilot from the writers of Once Upon A Time (I know…SHOCKER) that takes a semi-dark look at the story of Alice, this time with her being convinced it is a vision as she is put through the ringer to get it abolished via an insane asylum’s tactics. The spin on the story and the actors/effects look great, but I am hesitant only because it is a OUAT spin-off. I dropped the show at the beginning of season 2 due to its flip-flopping nature of 1 great episode, then 2 awful and boring ones, continuing the cycle throughout the season. I will still give the show a try, but I won’t be sticking around long if it has the OUAT curse. Continue reading →
