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.

Magic Kingdom Update: Flags at Half-Staff, Fantasyland Expansion Construction Including from Dumbo & PeopleMover, Disney’s Grand Floridian Villas Construction Update – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Yesterday we put off our Magic Kingdom update to focus on the Cubot interactive test, but I’m happy to be sharing our Magic Kingdom photos and video today! Denise noticed the pumpkin wreaths at the Magic Kingdom tollbooth (below, left) as we drove to the park. The Disney and American flags were flying at half-staff in memory of Steve Jobs (below, right).

Magic Kingdom Halloween Decorations, Fantasyland Construction Update including from Dumbo – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

The Magic Kingdom is decked out for Halloween, and Denise took photos from the front of the park to all the way down Main Street USA (see the full set HERE). It looks really good this year, with new garland and wreaths! The display is outside as always for Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party (below, left). The Magic, Memories and You banner has displaced a couple of pumpkins, which are now inside the park at Town Square. But the front entrance looks great! (below, right).

Disneyland Magical Moments: Pearly Band with Mary Poppins & Bert, Peter Pan & Captain Hook, Princesses, Hillbillies, Asimo and Main Street USA fun – Photos & Video

Hi everyone!

We just returned from a wonderful (and busy!) 2 week trip to Southern California (below, left). We spent the beginning of the trip at the D23 Expo, a day at Sea World San Diego and another day exploring the L.A. area – including a visit to a Tim Burton exhibit. But the rest of the time was spent at Disneyland (below, left). We visit Disneyland each year, and always find many “magical moments” to be had. One was a show in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle with Mary Poppins, Bert, and the Pearly Band (below, right).  We’ve never seen it before, and it’s a fantastic show!

Main Street USA Fire Station Engine Co. 71, Magic Kingdom and Epcot Independence Day Celebrations Recap – Photos & Video

Hi everyone!

The Main Street Fire Station shop, also know as Engine Co.71 (below, left) was scheduled to close to the public this week. We paid a visit last weekend to get some photos around the store. One of the more popular features for guest viewing has been the various fire station patches from around the country (below, right). We were told that they were to be temporarily displayed inside City Hall now, but nothing seems known about the plans for the Fire Station itself.

Hi everyone!

Pirate Angelica from the upcoming film Pirates of the Caribbean 4 is now making a splash in Adventureland! She is not only featured on the Tortuga Tavern sign (below, left), but now greeting guests at the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction (below, right). She was previously greeting guests at the Adventureland Veranda while her new permanent location was being readied (we have video of my Angelica interview HERE).

Fantasyland Construction Including Beast’s Castle, Angelica from Pirates of the Caribbean 4 Meet & Greet – Photos & Video

Hi everyone!

We went to the Magic Kingdom today to check out the new Beast’s Castle that went up this weekend (below, left). It’s amazing to see it rising from behind the wall!  I especially enjoyed watching as a turret was lifted from below the castle to it’s proper place on the castle (below, right). Our video below shows that!
