Pirates Photos! (6/21/17)

Time to bring out your eye patch and pirate sword because it’s official! The Pirates of the Caribbean ride will now be joining in the on-ride photo experience. I’m assuming the camera was placed at the drop. Can’t wait to see how creative people get with this one.

What was he thinking?! (5/18/17)

By now, I’m sure everyone is aware of what happened this past Sunday in Disney’s Art of Animation Hotel. A father decided it would be better to go on a drunken rampage rather than to take care of his child. The Ohio father left his toddler in a stroller for hours which resulted in a first degree sunburn which paramedics believe can turn into second degree burns and a soiled diaper. Witnesses say that the father was using the stroller to cut through crowds at the hotel as he used racial slurs and called people names.

Happily Ever After (5/15/17) **based on my opinion**

Like many of you, I tuned in to watch Disney’s newest fireworks spectacular, ‘Happily Ever After’, from the comfort of my home. This show replaced the beloved ‘Wishes’ on May 12. I will say that it was a beautiful show; with the soundtrack of our favorite movies such as Tarzan, Aladdin, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.. A big difference I noticed immediately was the amount of fireworks this show has. However, even with all that, I feel as if it lacked some of the magic that ‘Wishes’ gave off. I am not saying it is a bad show, it was very beautiful. I just feel that it is missing something. But I will say, there is a little something from ‘Wishes’ that they were able to incorporate to the new show. No worries, I will not spoil that surprise for those who have yet to see it.
Again, I am not saying that I did not enjoy ‘Happily Ever After’ because I did, it just feels like something is missing. Maybe I just miss ‘Wishes’ too much and with time will grow to love this spectacular just as much.

A Ghoulish Meal (5/1/2017)

In the latest of Disney Park rumors, the Orlando Weekly was reported talks of a new restaurant coming to the Magic Kingdom. The theme of this restaurant? This is exciting, it is said to be designed after the popular Haunted Mansion. Not much is known about this news but it is quite thrilling. Lets just hope the ghosts don’t disrupt your supper.

A new mountain in Magic Kingdom?
Are the rumors true?!
Just reported on Screamscape, there may be a new mountain joining the “mountains” in Magic Kingdom.
This rumored coaster is said to be Volcano-themed, and with the success of Disney’s Moana, this new mountain would be a perfect addition. Entrance will be built in Adventureland next to Pirates of the Caribbean, with the actual ride in a corner of the Jungle Cruise.
Boy do I hope this happens.
