Magic Kingdom Including New Pirate Goofy Meet and Greet, Epcot Flower & Garden Final Weekend and Disney’s Hollywood Studios Update – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

It’s been a very busy week with family in town, and so much is going on at the parks – it’s been hard to keep up with everything, but it’s been fun trying! I also released a new DVD last week, Jeff Lange Remembers: Disney-MGM Studios Classics Vol 1. For more information or to order, please click HERE. Pirate Goofy made his meet and greet debut in Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom (below, left and right)! It seems a natural choice to have him next to the Pirate League and he was very well received by the young pirates when I saw him!

Video #1 – Pirate Goofy at the Magic Kingdom, 5/16/2010 – Pirate Goofy now does a meet and greet in Adventureland!

The moat at Cinderella Castle is now filled with water (below left and right). The Castle looks great with the newly detailed brickwork now fully completed and appears ready for the Fantasyland Forest addition!

I don’t remember the last time I saw this fountain working over near Pinocchio’s Village House in Fantasyland! (below, left). Work is being done next to Cosmic Rays Starlight Cafe (below, right).

Chip and Dale greet guests at the Rockettower Plaza Stage in Tomorrowland (below left and right). It’s hard to believe that a year ago we were posting video of the short-lived Stitch’s Supersonic Celebration!

This week, our project at Epcot was planting two trees into soil. The seminar (below, left) was on “Stars of the Show“, which included some beautifully vibrant plants. Our trees (below, right) included one that blossomed bright yellow next to the Imagination Pavilion a month or so ago.

There were many plants displayed during our seminar (below, left). Ahmed Hassan, host of the tv show Yard Crashers, was also giving a seminar over the weekend (below, right). We have really enjoyed the Flower & Garden Festival this year and the many “Gardening at Home” seminars we attended. We now have a thriving garden from all the projects we completed and have learned a lot!

Honey I Shrunk the Audience” is now closed to make way for the return of Captain EO, scheduled to open July 2nd (below left and right).

Chubby Checker (below left and right) is a favorite of Flower and Garden audiences, he had some of the longest lines we’ve seen at Epcot this year! He was terrific in concert, singing songs such as “The Twist” and “The Fly“.

Video #2 – Chubby Checker, “The Twist” Epcot Flower and Garden Festival 2010 5/14/10 – This is from May 14th, Chubby Checker brought men from the audience onstage (including a cast member from Canada) to dance!

I was at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (below, left) when the Space Shuttle “Atlantis” took off for it’s last mission (below, right!) I’ve lived in Florida for under a year now, and have gotten to see a few Shuttle night launches. It was nice to get to see one from inside the park!

Work continues on the facades at the end of the Streets of America (below, left). The Villains in Vogue shop (below, right) also has work going on inside, part of the shop is divided by a wall but some of the merchandise can be found in the Tower of Terror shop down Sunset Boulevard.

MuppetVision 3D has reopened to guests (below, left). There are new chairs, a new rug, the movie looks clearer and it’s possible the Swedish Chef is updated. We had heard rumors that the pre-show would change, but it didn’t.

Light Magic replaced the popular Main Street Electrical Parade, but ended after only 4 months in 1997. Two different vantage points – from the Small World mall and Main Street USA – give you a complete look at Light Magic!

One Man’s Dream was a beloved stage show that also ran for 4 months in 1990 before making way for Dick Tracy’s Diamond Double Cross. Performed at the Videopolis theater, this show celebrated the remarkable imagination of Walt Disney. This is a show not to be missed!
