A Socially Distanced Halloween at the Magic Kingdom, Part One - Mickey and Friends
DisneyDan  Thursday, September 24, 2020 11:57:46 AM
Hello everyone,

Things look a little different this year for Halloween season at Walt Disney World. We have seen the cancellation of Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, along with drastically reduced operations across Walt Disney World. Gone are the days of visiting the hotel resorts to see the pumpkins and decor, and meeting characters on Halloween night at all the hotels; shelved is the Headless Horseman 5K at Fort Wilderness, and the Headless Horseman movie night event (also at Fort Wilderness); we've even lost those awful pumpkin-scarecrows that used to haunt us every year on Main Street! We've lost a lot of really cool things due to this ongoing pandemic, but there was one small bright spark of light to come out of it all. Now, during regular daily operations at the Magic Kingdom, we can see some of our favourite Disney characters in various spooky Halloween offerings. These offerings include a Mickey and friends cavalcade, a Pooh and friends trolley, a Nightmare Before Christmas cavalcade, a Villains cavalcade, the Cadaver Dans, and various greetings (Main Street Station, Rivers of America, and the Crystal Palace).

I thought I would make a few blog posts to share with you the Halloween spirit that has overtaken the Magic Kingdom, starting here with Mickey and friends. You can see Mickey and his pals intermittently throughout the day either up on Main Street Station, waving to guests below and posing for selfies, or riding through the park in a festive cavalcade. Mickey and his pals are joined by the Sugar Rush Racers from Wreck-It-Ralph, some pirates, Haunted Mansion ballroom dancers, and some Haunted Mansion gravediggers.

So, without any further commentary, here's a selection of   [ Read More... ]
REVIEW - Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White
DisneyDan  Thursday, June 6, 2019 7:09:06 AM
Hello everyone,

We recently dined at Artist Point for the first time to try the (relatively) new Storybook Dining with Snow White at Wilderness Lodge.

Wilderness Lodge is located on the southern shore of Bay Lake, southeast of the Magic Kingdom. You can get to Wilderness Lodge by bus from Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, or boat from the Magic Kingdom.

The restaurant is just off of the main lobby, to the northwest side of the building. Because of the way that Wilderness Lodge is built, although the restaurant is on the main/"ground" level, there are some pretty good views out towards Bay Lake.

The menu is a set price format, and you choose from a selection of set items. The cost is $55 per adult, plus tax and tip. Annual Passholders can get 10% off, making the the price $49.50, plus tax and tip. No drinks are included, and are at an additional cost.

Random Disney Friends Visit Town Square at the Magic Kingdom
DisneyDan  Friday, January 25, 2019 11:14:25 AM
Hello everyone,

Last week I talked about the (then) upcoming surprise character appearances at the Magic Kingdom as part of Mickey and Minnie's Surprise Celebration (for their 90th birthdays).

Well, last Friday saw the first day of the daily fun at the Flagpole in Town Square, and I was there everyday to see who came out! From what I understand from talking to cast members who were there everyday, these characters will remain the same for the foreseeable future, and even possibly until the end of the celebration in September. The days may change later on, just to make it fair to people who can't come on specific days of the week (because of work or school, etc), but the characters are likely to remain the same. Indeed, today, Nick and Judy are back in Town Square, as they were last Friday. Of course, as always with Disney, anything is subject to change at any moment, so we shall see what happens in a couple of weeks from now.

The characters that are a part of this new offering, so far at least, are: Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps (Zootopia), Phineas and Ferb (from their namesake TV show), Robin Hood, Little John, Friar Tuck and Prince John (Robin Hood), Chicken Little and Abby Mallard (Chicken Little), Remy and Emile (Ratatouille), and Gideon and J. Worthington Foulfellow (Pinocchio).

Important! - At time of writing, the characters begin at around 11.30am (usually with a slight delay), and end around 2.30pm, daily. It should be noted that the park schedule and/or the WDW app has been listing characters off and on as being in Town Sq until around 4.45pm. We found this to not be entirely true, and when they did appear after 3pm, they would just walk around and NOT stop for photos.
