New Fantasyland Opens for Dress Rehersal, Little Mermaid Queue and Ride, Gaston’s Tavern, Be Our Guest Restaurant Plus Country Bear Jamboree Re-Opens – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

New Fantasyland opened for previews last Friday! We had known about the upcoming preview for days, but we were in Pittsburgh until Saturday – we are very happy that our friends Daniel and Corinne Andersson shot footage for us!  You can see the video below the photos, they were the very first guests in line, and the very first guests to enter New Fantasyland. We did make it into this area after the Swan & Dolphin Food & Wine Classic on Saturday – tired from our flight, but excited to see the expansion for ourselves. I think we’ve been there 4 times now! We never waited long for Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid (below, left). The longest wait was 20 minutes, but it was more often than not that we walked right on. The Mermaid queue is detailed and exquisite, and there is no way to take a bad photo here (below, right).

Magic Kingdom Update: Be Our Guest Restaurant, Enchanted Forest, Former Skyway Station, Country Bears Pre Refurb, Grand Floridian Water Playground – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Yesterday we went to the Magic Kingdom to see the last shows of Country Bear Jamboree before it went down for refurbishment. There is talk that several minutes might get cut from the show, so we wanted to make sure to capture it in photos and video just in case. But first, we took a look at New Fantasyland progress, and found that the sign for the Be Our Guest Restaurant is now up! Behind it appears to be a griffin (below, left). The Be Our Guest sign (below, right) features a rose and several symbols.

Disney’s Animal Kingdom Christmas Update, Camp Minnie-Mickey Character Trees, Mickey’s Jingle Jungle Parade, Dinoland U.S.A. Holidays & More – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We spent yesterday afternoon (into the evening) at Disney’s Animal Kingdom park (below, left). This wasn’t our first time this season seeing the Christmas tree, but it was the first time we photographed/videotaped it. The ornaments on the tree have an African flair to them, including this Mickey head (below, right).

Halloween at Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort, Golf Cart Parade, Special Backyard BBQ, Singing Pumpkins, Happy HalloWishes Fireworks, Campsite Decorating and More – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We went back to Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort yesterday to see both the Halloween golf cart parade as well as to enjoy a Halloween version of Mickey’s Backyard BBQ! Our favorite golf cart was the Mad Tea Party from Alice in Wonderland (below, left). The guests said it took them 3 months to build! There were many unique and wonderful entries into the contest, including Peter Pan and Captain Hook (below, right) with a pirate ship – and more characters – behind them.

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!

Hi everyone!

We stopped by the Magic Kingdom yesterday to see the updated Frontierland Hoedown. There have been many incarnations of the show near the Country Bear Jamboree, this one started a few weeks back. Before the show, the characters met briefly with guests. Liverlips McGrowl stopped by a merchandise stand (below, right). The characters perform with dancers to a variety of songs, including “The Hokey Pokey”. Guests are also brought into the action.
