Mission: Space ‘Relaunches’ August 13th with Brand New Experiences

  Starting Aug. 13, 2017, Walt Disney World® Resort will relaunch Mission: SPACE with a brand new experience and an enhanced version of the “classic” attraction.

Soarin’ Around the World to debut on June 17, 2016

Technically, that’s not correct.  It’s really going to debut in Shanghai Disneyland on June 16th as “Soarin’ Over the Horizon,” but in the United States it will debut on the 17th. While I’m sad to see the original film retired, I’m really excited about this new film!  I wonder what kind of scents we’ll get […]

The end of Star Wars Weekends and new permanent Star Wars experiences at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

  There has been a great disturbance in the Force!  Changes in the Star Wars experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are coming, and these changes are both good and bad. Very soon, you’ll have the opportunity to experience Star Wars in the park in an all-new way – every day! New experiences will open starting Dec. […]

The Sorcerer’s Hat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will pull a vanishing act next year!

“The Sorcerer’s Hat at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that Disney will dismantle the eyesore permanently. The last remnants of the Millennial Celebration have been swept away…” I make no secret of the fact that I have never been a fan of the Sorcerer’s […]

Construction begins on “Rivers of Life”

  You’ve no doubt heard about “Rivers of Light” at Animal Kingdom. Or maybe you missed that announcement in your excitement to hear more news about Avatarland. Or maybe Rivers of Light is part of Avatarland. Who knows anymore? The official announcement says that Rivers of Light is part of the largest expansion in the […]

Big Changes as Downtown Disney Transforms Into Disney Springs!

Downtown Disney in Walt Disney World has certainly changed over the years.  From its humble beginnings as the Lake Buena Vista Shopping Village back in 1975, to the Pleasure Island addition under Eisner’s reign (RIP Adventurers Club!) and now moving forward to Disney Springs.  As Walt Disney Imagineering transforms the area again, you can be […]

One Little Spark Can Start A Fire!

Two things that occured at the Destination D event at Disney World really got me thinking. First, there was the announcement that the Enchanted Tiki Room: Under New Management is going to be converted into something that very closely resembles the original Tiki Room Tropical Serenade.  If you read my previous blog post on the […]

A busy month!

I’ve had quite a busy month! I was a guest on the Tiara Talk Podcast as part of a round-table discussion giving a recap of the WDW Radio Dream Cruise, complete with fun anecdotes and tips.  If you want to find out if I’m really Lou Mongello’s brother, just listen to Episode 2. I also managed to […]
