Disney's Hollywood Studios Club Penguin Meet & Greet, Magic Kingdom Construction, Virgin Megastore, Latest Contemporary Bay Lake Tower – Photos & Video

Hi everyone!

I am currently working on a very special DVD project featuring some recently discovered vintage Walt Disney World footage circa 1986! I am enjoying working on this very much and being able to rediscover some things I never thought I would get to enjoy again. Just a few highlights are the original Disney Shopping Village, The Contemporary and Polynesian Village before the Grand Floridian was built (although you see the land being cleared), Discovery Island, classic Epcot Center, Magic Kingdom and much more. Watch this site for more details on this  exciting project! Also, go to Mousesteps for a new contest for an Epcot Flower and Garden Screensaver, the contest ends June 3rd.

Today we feature the latest happenings around Walt Disney World, starting with the test of the Club Penguin meet and greet at  Disney’s Hollywood Studios (below)! The two-week test ended yesterday, and there is no word yet on whether the meet and greet will be brought back. Look for characters soon from Pixar’s UP!
