Instapic: Someone is building a tent fort in Tomorrowland!

The Peoplemover is down through August and Astro Orbitor is scheduled to be down until sometime in September. The whole area is getting a major overhaul right now.

You know what I wish they would do with the Peoplemover? Use to actually transport guests to a second location.

Marvel Sets Movie Schedule Through 2019

marvel-logo

Marvel Studios had decided to go bold by setting dates for its upcoming movies through Spring 2019, which will take them into the start of Phase 4 of the Marvel Universe.

Already on the schedule for upcoming films are Guardians of the Galaxy on August 1, 2014, along with The Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015, and Ant-Man on July 17, 2015.

For 2016, Marvel plans to release Captain America 3. This leaves 1 more movie for 2016, 3 movies for 2017, 2 movies for 2018, and 1 for 2019 (though I’m sure a second will be scheduled for later that year).

So what other films could Marvel plan to release?

Well, The Avengers sequel is coming three years after the first one, which means The Avengers 3 could occupy one of the 2018 dates. Doctor Strange already has a director, so that might get the second 2016 date. Thor 3 is also in the pipeline, so that will probably get one of the 2017 dates, as will a most likely sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel is also said to be developing standalone films around Black Widow and Black Panther. That leaves one slot unaccounted for.

Hopefully we’ll know more once Marvel has its big reveals at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.

Below is the full slate of Marvel releases scheduled through 2019:

Always a popular photo spot. Have you had your picture taken here?

Netflix and Disney Pen Canadian Deal for Live-Action and Animated Features

netflix-disney

Our friends north of the border will have a new channel to access Disney’s premium live action and animated feature films. Netflix Inc. and The Walt Disney Studios have signed a new multi-year licensing agreement that will make Netflix the exclusive Canadian subscription television service.

Beginning with 2015 theatrically released feature films, Netflix Canada members can enjoy new titles from Disney Live Action, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Lucasfilm, Disneynature and DreamWorks Studios. Approximately eight months after titles leave theaters – quicker than has traditionally been the case on premium pay TV – Canadian Netflix subscribers will be able to watch new releases from The Walt Disney Studios in the home and on the go.

“We are delighted to be the new pay TV home in Canada for the world’s highest-quality, most imaginative and entertaining films,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix. “Canadians of all ages will have an incredible range of great stories and characters to look forward to.”

“We are absolutely thrilled that Canadian Netflix subscribers will be able to experience Disney’s premium films in the pay TV window,” said Dan Cohen, executive vice president, pay television and digital, Disney-ABC Domestic Television. “Netflix continues to be a highly-valued partner on a global scale and we couldn’t be more pleased to extend our great relationship with this exciting new agreement.”

Netflix launched its Canada service in 2010 and is now the home of first-run pay TV films from Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks Animation, and 20th Century Fox, original series like the Emmy-nominated House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Derek, and a wide-range of films and TV series from Canada, Hollywood and beyond.

Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Disney Bites: Corn Dog from the Fantasy Fare Food Truck

disney-food-truck-fantasy

Although it’s not always on stage, the Little Red Wagon at Disneyland offers one of the park’s real treats – hand-dipped corn dogs. They dip them in yummy corn bread batter, then fry them up at the perfect temperature to keep the grease to a minimum and serve it on a stick. They a are big, hot, and tasty treat that makes any visit to Disneyland more special.

You can get Churros, Popcorn, Turkey Legs, and many other treats at Walt Disney World, but not the corn dog. That is until the Fantasy Fare food truck came to Downtown Disney. When it first opened, I actually went to Downtown Disney a couple times just to try the corn dog, but the Fantasy Fare truck was either not yet open or just not present. Eventually, I gave up and decided that I would get my corn dog when the time was right.

That time was today.

After braving the hunt for an open parking spot, I found myself walking past the Fantasy Fare truck which was parked right next to Ghiradelli’s. Amazingly there was no one in queue and I was looking for something to hold me over between a late breakfast and a 7pm dinner. So, I ordered up one Corn Dog.

By the time my card had been swiped and processed, a corn dog and chips was being handed to me out the window. While the corn dog may have been made before I ordered it, it was still nice and hot with a perfect golden brown color.

The corn dog itself was slightly greasier than I remember the Disneyland version being, but it was just as tasty as the original. I think a slightly higher temp on the deep fry portion would reduce some of the greasiness.

The Fantasy Fare corn dog comes with fresh made potato chips. Mine were well salted and the portion was just about right. A few chips got stuck together and hadn’t cooked quite to a crisp, but over all the taste and quality was good. I would have preferred the option to have a dash of flavored salt to add a little pizazz to an otherwise plain side dish.

While it’s hard to split a corn dog, the chips are perfect for sharing. If you want a great snack while at Downtown Disney, for $7.50 the corn dog is the perfect option. Later this summer, the Food Truck park will open at Downtown Disney, until then try looking in Market Place for this food truck.
