Dino-mite!

What’s cuter than seeing your favorite characters dressed up in outfits and costumes?

Well Disney says Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, and Chip ‘n’ Dale will all be returning to DinoLand U.S.A., and they’ll be dressed in their best dino outfits (see photo up top).

This is a photo op I wanna do! How about you?


A New Floatilla

One of the fun things at Disney’s Animal Kingdom is seeing the character flotillas that cruise down Discovery River, and word comes there will be a new one to watch out for.

Beginning Sept. 4, keep an eye on the water for the brand-new “Adventure Flotilla,” where you may spot Launchpad McQuack and Scrooge McDuck from Disney’s “DuckTales” setting sail, or Russell and Dug from Disney and Pixar’s “UP” exploring the wilderness.

Grabbing a reservation for a table outdoors at the Nomad Lounge for a drink or bite is a great place to spot flotillas.
