October Florida Recap: NFFC Convention, Adventurers Club Dinner, New Releases and more

Hi everyone!

I had a great trip to central Florida last week, and accomplished all I set out to do. Below are the highlights of the trip:

2008 NFFC Florida Canvention:

This years NFFC Florida Convention was excellent as expected! Highlights included author David Koenig, who gave a highly informative and entertaining presentation on Epcot’s World Showcase concepts that were never realized. Animation Legend Joe Hale (below right) gave an interesting and candid talk about working at the Disney Studios. His recollections included memories of Walt Disney and dealing with Jeffrey Katzenburg, Michael Eisner and more!

Another highlight was Ike Eisenmann (below left), who spoke about his work on the original Witch Mountain movies. He segued into his involvement with the upcoming “Race to Witch Mountain” film and his own animation company. A very special tribute to Disney Legend Ralph Kent featured emotional memories from Gary Sohmers and a panel of Ralphs friend and co-workers. This was followed by a spirited auction where some of Ralph’s memorabilia was auctioned off by Mr Sohmers to benifit Ralph’s estate.

The convention also included a tour of the Walt Disney World Merchandise Warehouse, the induction of three new NFFC legends: Hank Dains, Jess Rubio, Phil Smith and Gretta Verity. A very detailed talk about the history of the Adventurers Club from Disney historian Jim Korkis rounded out the convention and got everyone ready for the special event that followed!

The Adventurers Club Dinner:

When Pleasure Island opened in 1989, I was 22 years old. It was the perfect age to enjoy all that P.I. offered! That included the Comedy Warehouse, a variety of nightclubs – and the mysterious Adventurers Club. I enjoyed the Island on my frequent Disney trips, but was especially enamored with the interactive characters and atmosphere of the AC. When I found out about Pleasure Island’s closing, I was especially saddened as I would not be able to visit the final night. Fortunately, I was given another chance to say goodbye with the NFFC during a wonderful evening as part of the Florida Convention.

I enjoyed a special evening with other NFFC members, who’d waited excitedly to enjoy the Club one last time. All the characters were in attendance, and even more interactive than usual due to the absence of the library shows.

We were treated to a hilarious New Member Induction Ceremony poking fun at all the “Disney Fanatics” in the room plus two Mask Room shows and two Treasure Room shows!

The actors seemed genuinely happy to host our group, and talked out of character a little more than usual at the end of the evening. Jim Korkis ended the eventful night with a final tribute to the Club and the performers (photo below of the cast posting for us).

It was an unforgettable evening, and I will truly miss this unique Disney experience. I hope it returns in some form in the future. For more photos of this very special event, please visit partner site MouseSteps.

Hi everyone!

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2008:

Just a quick update from Walt Disney World! I have attended the first two Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties and they were their usual great events! I always enjoy the great costumes the guests come up with but this Hat Box Ghost (below) is one of the best I have seen! Also new this year is the spooky new cast member outfits for the party.

The Magic Kingdom is lit in special mood lighting below as the Headless Horseman rides again!

One of the highlights of the night is always the Boo-to you Halloween Parade. Mickey Mouse wishes you a Happy Halloween below!

Another not to be missed feature of the event is the Happy Hallowishes fireworks spooktacular!

Be sure to check back late next week for details of my upcoming Trick or Treat 5 DVD featuring all the great events from this years party!

JeffLangeDVD Travel Update, Disney's Vero Beach Resort, Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party & Upcoming NFFC Florida Convention

Hi everyone!

I am less than 48 hours away from my yearly September trip to Walt Disney World. I will be recording video footage for future projects, including this years Trick or Treat 5! I’ll also be exploring Disney’s Vero Beach Resort which will be one of the last completely new Disney experiences that I’ve not enjoyed yet. I have heard great things about the resort, and look forward to giving a full report upon my return. (photos below © Disney)

One of the highlights of my year is the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! I can’t believe that summer has ended so quickly, and that Halloween is just around the corner. I love the decor in the Magic Kingdom, and hope to see the hitchiking ghosts and the bride below again at the event!

NFFC Florida Convention:

I will be attending the upcoming 3rd annual NFFC Florida Convention and It sounds fantastic! This year, the convention takes place at the Regal Sun Resort (formerly the Grosvenor Resort Walt Disney World) at Lake Buena Vista, Florida. The dates are October 3rd through October 5th, 2008. The schedule has been released and is available HERE. (Highlights below)

“In case you haven’t heard, Pleasure Island, Downtown Disney’s nightlife fun spot at the Walt Disney World Resort, will be closing the week before the NFFC Florida Convention. Included among the clubs and restaurants set to be shuttered is the very popular Adventurer’s Club, which just happens to be the location of the convention’s closing night dinner party.

Fear not, the Walt Disney Company is honoring its commitment to the NFFC. This means attendees at this year’s 3rd Annual NFFC Florida Convention will be among the last—maybe even the very last—Disneyana fans that get to experience this truly one-of-a kind Disney venue.

Join the fun as the NFFC, the place for Disneyana enthusiasts, bids a fond farewell to the Adventurer’s Club. It promises to be a full evening featuring a buffet dinner, one of a kind in-depth tour of the Adventurer’s Club, and some very special entertainment, especially designed for the Florida Adventurer.

At the conclusion of the Convention and Giant All Disneyana Show and Sale, the World Chapter, the convention host chapter, will host a special meeting at the Regal Sun Resort.”
