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! 😉

Rivers of Light at Animal Kingdom

Posted in DISNEY'S ANIMAL KINGDOM with tags , , on June 8, 2015 by disneychronicles

Stopped in at Animal Kingdom this past weekend and checked out the soon to be Rivers of Light night show. We are excited to see all the new attractions coming to this park. Hopefully with this and Avatar (forecasted 2017) they will also have extended hours.

“Rivers of Light” promises to be an innovative show unlike anything ever seen in Disney Parks, combining live music, floating lanterns, water screens and swirling animal imagery. The show will magically come to life on the broad, natural stage of the Discovery River, between Discovery Island and Expedition Everest, delighting our guests and truly capping off a full day of adventures at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
