Space Mountain Soft Opening: Queue, Ride and Post Show – Full Coverage Including Photos and Videos

Hi everyone!

Space Mountain is currently in soft opening, and I was fortunate enough to get to ride 3 times yesterday. The attraction was set to stay open until midnight for the Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, I’m not sure if it made it quite that late. It was to be the first day it was open past 7pm. The front of the attraction has changed, as we’ve noted through the last month (below, left). Inside the doors is a welcome to Starport Seven-Five, a reference to the year Space Mountain opened at Walt Disney World (below, right).

Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade, Now with More Characters (No Villains Float) & DVC Bay Lake Tower Update – Photos And Exclusive Video

Hi everyone!

I am very happy with the reaction to my latest DVD release, Jeff Lange’s Disney-MGM Studios Parade Classics – 20th Anniversary Collectors Edition (for more information or to order, click HERE)! Last week was a huge one for Walt Disney World, I had a wonderful trip and have another update that came out of it.

Walt Disney World rolled out the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade without the Villains Float, but with many more characters interacting with guests. Characters like Geppetto also are in the street and not on the float.

Pluto waves to the crowd (below, left). Geppetto now walks through the street, shaking hands with guests (below, right).

Pleasure Island, Contemporary Bay Lake Tower, Magic Kingdom: Photos & Video – Production Update: Flower & Garden 09 DVD

Hi everyone!

I just returned from a quick trip to Walt Disney World where I recorded footage for my upcoming DVD, Jeff Lange Experiences: Epcot’s Flower & Garden 09 DVD (my 2008 edition is available HERE). I was also able to see the Characters In Flight balloon testing and learned that the opening date has been pushed back pending building permits and further testing.

I have some photos and video from around Walt Disney World starting with Pleasure Island (below). It seems the Celebrate Tonight theme has made it’s way to the Island and I am told there will be nighttime entertainment offered going forward.
