Magic Kingdom Christmas Tree, Disney Fastpass+ Testing, New Fantasyland Entertainment: The Royal Majesty Makers and The Giggle Gang – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We finally had the chance to see the Magic Kingdom Christmas tree this year, which went up after the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade taping (below, left). It is pretty much the same as in previous years, with a train, toy soldiers, gifts and more under the tree including a reference to Walt Disney’s personal Carolwood Pacific “Fair Weather Route” railroad. (below, right).

Video #1 – Magic Kingdom Christmas Tree 2012, Walt Disney World – This is the Magic Kingdom Christmas Tree – including up-close detail, for 2012! The tree is pretty much the same as in previous years, with a train, toy soldiers, gifts and more under the tree including a reference to Walt Disney’s personal Carolwood Pacific “Fair Weather Route” railroad.

Denise and I were invited by our friend Derek to try out the Cast Member FastPass+ test (below, left). We were all issued green FastPass+ cards with our name and ride information stored (below, right). Our first ride was to have been Space Mountain, but due to Disney transportation issues, we were late. Derek was able to change our Space Mountain ride to a different time (he rode it himself), and we soon met Derek at the Haunted Mansion for our first attraction.

Next to the new Casey Jr. Candy Junction in Storybook Circus, you’ll find Curious Candy Way, themed to the story of Alice in Wonderland. We’ll stop briefly to visit Phineas and Ferb next to City Hall, as well as Mickey and Minnie dressed in their Halloween finest.

Headless Horseman

Hooves slap against the pavement as you await the arrival of the Horseman from Sleepy Hollow. Sparks shoot from the ground as the horse gallops by, with it’s famed rider holding an illuminated Jack-O-Lantern in his gloved hand. This video footage is taken from four different angles!

This “ghostly retreat” never feels quite as spooky as it does during the midnight hour. Mist envelopes you as you walk alone, past the gravestones that are bathed in fog. All 999 Happy Haunts are awaiting your presence – there’s no turning back now…

Haunted Exit Scenes

Your Not-So-Scary night closes with a look at projections and lights around the Magic Kingdom, including a skull and crossbones on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Cobwebs and spiders seem to have taken over Tomorrowland, so watch your step! Stroll down a nearly-empty Main Street, stopping to admire the themed scarecrows in Town Square and the spooky window displays decorated for Halloween. Take one last look back at the fog-enveloped train station before exiting for the evening.

Hop in your Doom Buggy and let Jeff Lange be your ultimate Ghost Host with “Jeff Lange’s Trick or Treat 9”!

Magic Kingdom Update: Fantasyland Storybook Circus Walls Down, Barnstormer Great Goofini Coaster Testing, Big Thunder Rehab, Former Skyway Area Clearing – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We went to the Magic Kingdom yesterday afternoon to enjoy a little downtime – but it turns out, there was a lot to see and we ended up spending most of our time taking photos and video! A friend told us that the scrims on Main Street U.S.A. had been blown off buildings during a windstorm (below, left). We rode the Walt Disney World Railroad – 3 times! – and enjoyed the view of the new Fantasyland train Station which will be open soon (below, right).

Magic Kingdom Update, Main Street USA, Dumbo the Flying Elephant, New Fantasyland, Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom Testing – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Yesterday was a busy one at the Magic Kingdom. The Mickey Christmas ornament is now replaced with a more traditional Mickey at the front of the park (below, left). Scrims are up around Main Street U.S.A. (below, right), as the end of the holiday season always seems to lead to a few months of extensive rehabs.

Buy it Now – Jeff Lange Remembers: Frontierland Classics

Jeff Lange takes you on a trip back in time to experience classic Walt Disney World “Frontierland” attractions. This fifth volume in the series features the following:

Splash Mountain (1992)

Join Br’er Rabbit, Br’er Bear and the gang on a trip through the laughing place! Boasting a five story flume drop and 68 Audio-Animatronics, Splash Mountain is one of the world’s most elaborately themed flume rides. This was filmed during the Grand Opening of the attraction in October,1992. From your hollowed out log, you’ll get a glimpse of the 20th Anniversary Surprise Celebration Parade, which will transport you back almost 20 years to when Splash Mountain first opened. Includes coverage of the exterior, queue, and a complete POV ride from the front seat!

Frontierland Shootin’ Arcade (2006)

Nearly 100 targets await as you enter Boothill in the 1850’s. Take your pick of a jail, cemetery, bank, and hotel as you fire with an infra-red rifle toward tombstones, buzzards, a grave digger’s shovel and more! Ricocheting bullets and howling coyotes lend to the atmosphere of this interactive shooting arcade where the scenery animates when you hit the targets!

Country Bear Jamboree (1992)

“Give me a little intro there, Gomer”! Henry, the genial Country Bear host kicks off the show and the curtains open to one of the most beloved attractions at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. This was recorded just as it re-opened after a six year hiatus as “The Country Bear Vacation Hoedown”, and features a cast of 18 bears along with assorted other characters! As you leave Grizzly Hall, you’ll see Melvin, Buff and Max as they welcome you to the Mile Long Bar! Features great close up footage of the bears compiled from multiple recordings!

Big Thunder Mountain Railroad (1997)

Clocking in at nearly 200 feet at it’s tallest point, the “Wildest Ride in the Wilderness” takes you on a rollicking, adventurous tour through the mining town of Tumbleweed. You’ll even get a glimpse of Cinderella Castle dressed as a cake for the 25th Anniversary of Walt Disney World! Exiting the attraction, a rainbow is visible as a geyser shoots water high into the air. Enjoy a different vantage point from the Walt Disney World Railroad, viewing Cousin Ed as he floats around in his bathtub and a Mike Fink Keel Boat that is docked nearby! Includes full coverage of the exterior, queue and exit scenes!

Tom Sawyer Island (2006)

Check the Explorer Map to get your bearings before setting out for Tom Sawyer Island, where you’ll be transported to a bygone era. Walking through Old Scratch’s Mystery Mine, you’ll hear the wind and listen to the water as it echos along the walls. View gemstones in their natural splendor! Visiting Harper’s Mill, an owl makes known his presence. There is so much to explorer here, including the Tom Sawyer Scavenger Fort, and we’ll even make a quick stop at Aunt Polly’s – a former restaurant that served meals on an old fashioned porch!
