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.

February Recap Part 2: Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party! – More Photos and Video, Treehouse Villas Construction and More

Hi everyone!

I’ve got more photos and videos of the great new Magic Kingdom parade, Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party!

This is a very colorful and photogenic parade, especially with the Cinderella Castle as a backdrop!

It is really fun to get out into the street and interact with the dancers and characters. I recorded this 5 times during my visit and wish I had a chance to get into the street and enjoy it fully! I plan to do just that on my next trip.

It is also great to see more obscure park characters, like Sebastian the Crab and the Mad Hatter! Currently “Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party!” happens at 11:00, 12:30 & 5:45pm.
