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 […]

New Village Causeway Now Open at Downtown Disney!

  Downtown Disney’s transformation into Disney Springs continues!  The Village Causeway, a bridge connecting the area near The LEGO Store across the water to Rainforest Café, is now open at Downtown Disney Marketplace. I’m excited about Disney Springs.  Even though I love many of the spots at Downtown Disney and always have a visit on […]

Garden Rocks Concert Series to Debut at Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival

  The Flower Power Concert Series has been replaced with the new Garden Rocks Concert Series.  Well, replaced really isn’t quite accurate.  It really seems to have been renamed.  I suppose it’s a subtle difference.   I’m really not quite sure why they renamed it.  Maybe they wanted to avoid confusion because there are fewer […]

Tasty Tuesday – Watermelon Delight at Spice Road Table

  I have a confession to make.  I love interesting new drinks that are brightly colored and come in fancy glasses.  Yet I am constantly disappointed when I go to restaurants because, almost everywhere, the drinks that look neat and have fun names all contain alcohol.  This is a problem because I don’t drink alcohol. Yet, […]

Canadian Lumberjacks Show at Epcot

  The Canadian Lumberjacks show is now officially appearing as World Showcase Entertainment in Canada.  These lumbermen, representing Canada’s great timber and logging areas, demonstrate their skills in time-honored games of the great forest — axe throwing, chopping, sawing, beaver skinning, and lots more.   And it’s a good thing the Lumberjacks are experts with […]

Tasty Tuesday – Caramel Apple Oatmeal Cookie

  The next time you’re in Epcot, head on over to the Germany Pavilion and stop by Karamell-Kuche.  One of my favorite treats is the Caramel Apple Oatmeal Cookie, and I almost didn’t buy it.  Actually, when I had planned that particular Disney vacation, I had an entire list of items I wanted to try […]

Retro EPCOT Center Merchandise!

  You know I’m an old school, EPCOT Center guy.  My first visit to EPCOT Center was in 1983 and I bought into Walt Disney’s vision of the future in a big way.   Yeah, I’m one of those people who mourns the loss of Horizons, World of Motion, and The Dreamfinder & Figment.  (I’m talking […]
