Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort Construction Update, Magic Kingdom Main Street Bakery Featuring Starbucks Coffee, Rainforest Cafe Erupting Volcano – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We came back from Washington D.C. a couple of days ago after nearly a week away, and got back to Disney the next day! We started with the Villas at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort construction (below, left and right). The DVC villas are set to open later this year, and the building looks more and more like the buildings that have been part of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa for 25 years.

The last few days have been busy at Walt Disney World.  Unfortunately, one of those changes was the closing of Starabilias. A unique shop on the Downtown Disney West End, there have been rumors of it closing for a while (below left and right).

Treehouse Villas At Disney's Saratoga Springs Resort: Soft Opening – Photos & Exclusive Video

Hi everyone!

Yesterday was the first day that the Disney Vacation Club Treehouse Villas were in soft opening. We have some video and photos!

*UPDATE I now have photos and video from INSIDE a Treehouse taken on the official opening day available HERE!

The front sign (below, left) is at the entrance for those who are driving in. The boat dock (below, right) is serviced by the DVC resort ferry, which also makes a stop at the new dock next to the soon-to-open Paradiso 37.

Disney's Hollywood Studios Club Penguin Meet & Greet, Magic Kingdom Construction, Virgin Megastore, Latest Contemporary Bay Lake Tower – Photos & Video

Hi everyone!

I am currently working on a very special DVD project featuring some recently discovered vintage Walt Disney World footage circa 1986! I am enjoying working on this very much and being able to rediscover some things I never thought I would get to enjoy again. Just a few highlights are the original Disney Shopping Village, The Contemporary and Polynesian Village before the Grand Floridian was built (although you see the land being cleared), Discovery Island, classic Epcot Center, Magic Kingdom and much more. Watch this site for more details on this  exciting project! Also, go to Mousesteps for a new contest for an Epcot Flower and Garden Screensaver, the contest ends June 3rd.

Today we feature the latest happenings around Walt Disney World, starting with the test of the Club Penguin meet and greet at  Disney’s Hollywood Studios (below)! The two-week test ended yesterday, and there is no word yet on whether the meet and greet will be brought back. Look for characters soon from Pixar’s UP!

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).

Sanaa: Walt Disney World's New Destination Restaurant! Reviews With Photos And Video

Hi everyone!

I was pleased to be able to visit the new Sanaa Restaurant at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge, Kidani Village last weekend, and I have a joint review with Denise Preskitt from Mousesteps, as well as a second review by another friend, Steve Buddin.

We will start with Steve’s glowing review, which includes photos that Denise and I took during our lunch on May 2nd. Thank you to Steve for offering the review for everyone to enjoy! A portion of our joint review follows, which you can then finish on Mousesteps. We end with a video of the restaurant. Remember that we have over 20 minutes worth of  Kidani Village videos, as well as photos of the pool and other areas of the resort!
