Hi everyone!

We were very surprised yesterday at Star Wars Weekends to see an interactive talking C3PO in the park! While waiting for the Hyperspace Hoopla, we heard the crowd get a little louder – we turned around, and C3PO was walking by (below left and right). He is fully interactive, in the way that the Mickey Mouse was in a test at Disneyland.

Mini-Update: Walt Disney World’s Carrousel Is Getting A Name Change

Hi everyone!

Prince Charming Regal CarouselAs of June 1, Cinderella’s Golden Carrousel will experience a name change. The ride will soon be known as the Prince Charming Regal Carrousel.

Disney has announced the change on their website and added a bit of a back story to the name change. The story tells of Prince Charming building a training device for him to practice his jousting skills. The villagers were so awed by the device that Prince Charming decided to have one built near the castle so that the villagers could have the chance to practice their skills as well.

The carrousel has a real history behind it as well. The ride was saved from Olympic Park, an abandoned amusement park in New Jersey, and Disney restore the 1917 carousel to new condition.

The Friday “Legends of the ForceMotorcade had featured the new R2-MK astromech, but that was a one-time event for 2010. Jedi Mickey led the parade as always (below, right).
