Royal Rooms Unveiled at Port Orlean's Resort-Riverside
Tuesday, 13 March 2012 16:44
What a treat for the princesses. The NEW Royal rooms are ready at Disney's Port Orlean's Resort - Riverside. They are beautiful .... a little too girly for me though. There are 500 renovated "Royal Rooms" for you to enjoy. I really like the small rug on the floor and the firework wall art. I don't know how the dads will feel about spending a week or so in the princess tower but he can raise his testosterone level in a pirate themed room at Disney's Caribbean Beach Resort. Check out this video for your look at the regal rooms.
FastPass Return Times being enforced at Walt Disney World Resort
Monday, 12 March 2012 14:42
Well, we've been wondering if the rumours were true and behold, they ARE.
Rumours about Disney Parks enforcing FastPass return times have been running rampant and have been met with mixed reviews. Some guests are offended that it will impede on their ability to collect FastPasses and use them after their return times have expired; others are thrilled about the new policy.
We have always respected this policy regardless of the fact that we could visit the attraction after the return window had expired. We also never shared this little loophole with guests. There may be hiccups along the way as Castmembers enforce the policy. We ask that all Mouse Voyagers and visitors respect their role and be as understanding as possible during this overdue policy change.
Carsland - Neon Signage throwback to 40's & 50's
Monday, 12 March 2012 14:33
I am SO stoked about the NEW "Carsland", opening this summer at Disney's California Adventure Park. I always get excited about the storytelling and attention to detail by Disney Imagineers. In this video you can see the lengths they have gone to to create the signage for the new land. "Carsland" will feature all new attractions, dining locations, and merchandise locations based on the Pixar animated feature CARS. In this day of LCD lighting, seeing a neon universe is going to be quite the spectacle. Disney's California Adventure sure is getting colourful. I don't think I have to tell you that I'm raring to go.
Robert Sherman has left the "Small World"
Tuesday, 06 March 2012 15:18
It is with great sadness we report the death of Robert Sherman the composer of some of the most iconic Disney songs. Mr. Sherman & his brother Richard were the duo behind "It's a Small World" and some of the most treasured Disney classics from Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book, Bedknobs & Broomsticks, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and The Many Adventures of Winnie-the-Pooh.
Mr. Sherman was a writer/composer and war veteran. His numerous accomplishments landed him a series of awards that include 2 Grammy's, Golden Globes and 2 Academy Awards. The brother/brother duo are showcased on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of Grauman's Chinese Theatre.
it's a world of laughter, a world or tears its a world of hopes, its a world of fear theres so much that we share that its time we're aware its a small world after all
There is just one moon and one golden sun And a smile means friendship to everyone. Though the mountains divide And the oceans are wide It's a small small world
