Not sure what that is?

Just keep reading…



Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! and one of my favorite events at Disney! I have to add that I was worried my boys would grow out of it but really who grows out of all that CANDY!

This is a separate ticketed event that runs August to Early November. Magic Kingdom will close to all other guests and the party will go from 7pm to Midnight.


Don’t miss your chance to collect so MUCH candy, sweets and frightfully delightful treats–all while the park hosts grim grinning ghosts, eerie entertainment and Disney Characters that go bump in the night. Well sort of…since the tone of this event is “not-so-scary,” that means children of every age can enjoy the fun!

Many special events will entertain you thorough the night including…

One of my favorites? The Boo To You Parade! Make sure you line up early to see the Headless Horseman!

​​​ 

Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular

Hallowishes, Character Meet and Greets (Yes, In their Halloween best!)

 

Photo Ops, Exclusive Merchandise and did I mention shorter lines for the rides! It’s true!

If you missed it let’s plan a trip for next year! 😉

Not the Hollywood Studios you remember..

Posted in DISNEY'S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS with tags , , , on June 27, 2017 by disneychronicles

Have you seen the map of Hollywood Studios recently? If so you may be saying…WHAAAAT?!
Changes? OH YES! and plenty of them!

To make room for the 14 acre Star Wars and 11 acre Toy Story lands, a number of attractions and areas have closed. Starting with the removal of the Earffel tower.
It’s gone.

Walking around you will see most of the park is under construction. Walls are up almost everywhere.

Among other casualties: The Writer’s Stop, a place I loved! It will be remembered for being the perfect corner stop to get away from it all, have a quiet moment with a steamy cappuccino and the famous carrot cake cookie! Gone. UGH.

Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, Streets of America, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids Movie Set….All Gone!

Disney has also discontinued two seasonal events — the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights and Star Wars Weekends.

I think the biggest shock for me was the Osborne Lights!! Why OH Why!!
I cannot even think of anything that comes close to that Holiday Light perfection!

Can you tell…I don’t do CHANGE well!

Moving on..

Disney’s Animal Kingdom used to be considered the half-day park. As Animal Kingdom has debuted new attractions and extended hours, Disney’s Hollywood Studios is starting to take on that reputation.

In my opinion it will have a different feel & flair once complete and a majority of it will focus on Star Wars which does not have as much appeal for me as it does for others.

What can I say it’s just not my thing! but I have a feeling they will do just fine! 😉

Miss Fortune Falls

Posted in DISNEY'S WATERPARKS with tags , on August 2, 2016 by disneychronicles

Have you heard? I can’t wait!

falls-550x418

(According to our Disney Travel Agent News)

A brand new attraction called Miss Fortune Falls is coming to Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon at Walt Disney World® Resort in spring of 2017!

Miss Fortune Falls will be a family-style raft attraction that takes Guests on a splashing journey through the fabled Captain Mary Oceanear’s past. Legend has it that Captain Oceanear, a treasure-hunting heroine, travelled across the sea collecting unique artifacts before she became stranded at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon many years ago by a rogue storm.

Onboard treasure rafts, Guests will ascend to the top of the attraction before plunging into a white-water adventure where they will be able to spot some of the treasures Captain Oceanear gathered from around the world.

With a ride time of two minutes, Miss Fortune Falls will be among the lengthiest attractions at both Disney Water Parks.

The NEW Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen

Posted in DISNEY DINING, EVERYTHING DISNEY with tags , on December 15, 2015 by disneychronicles

Beginning Dec. 16, 2015, you can set off on a culinary adventure featuring “World Famous Jungle Cuisine” at the new Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen in Magic Kingdom® Park at Walt Disney World® Resort.

Located steps from the legendary Jungle Cruise attraction, this new 222-seat table-service restaurant is staffed by the wisecracking crew of the Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Diners are seated in one of three dining destinations inside the company’s headquarters-turned-restaurant: the mess hall; the jungle-inspired parlor once used by the company’s founder, Dr. Albert Falls and his family; or the former meeting room of the mysterious Society of Explorers and Adventurers.

The adventurous menu features bold and flavorful tastes inspired by the exotic flavors of the rivers traveled on the Jungle Cruise. You can try Trader Sam’s head-on shrimp, Dr. Falls’ signature grilled steak or the house-made arepas with slow-cooked beef, black beans, tostones and queso fresco. Little ones can enjoy items such as Junior Skip’s special mac and cheese. And for dessert, there is a Kungaloosh! – an African-inspired chocolate cake served with caramelized bananas and cashew-caramel ice cream. Refreshing non-alcoholic specialty beverages, Punch Line punch and Schweitzer Slush, will also be offered.

The Disney Dining Plan will be accepted at Jungle Navigation Co. Ltd. Skipper Canteen. Reservations are not currently being offered.
