Space Mountain Full Ride-Through with New Audio and Sound Effects, Best Friends Pet Resort Preview – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We were able to ride Space Mountain yesterday (below left), there is now music on 60 speakers throughout the ride – it isn’t an onboard ride track. There are also whooshing sounds that happen as you pass certain areas of the ride. We also noticed a spider web projection on the building, I have not seen this for a number of years – the last time being the Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party from a couple of years back.

Magic Kingdom Update: Tomorrowland Terrace, Fantasyland Forest and another Rain Parade – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

It’s been a rainy week here in Orlando, but we’ve been able to get out and enjoy the parks a bit even so. At the Magic Kingdom looking towards Cinderella Castle (below, left), we noticed that new metallic railings had been installed – and it might have happened a little while back, but we don’t usually get into this area that normally is roped off for the dessert party. The Tomorrowland Terrace (below, right) is being used for a dinner buffet through the free dining August/September time period.

Disney’s Last Tour To Endor, Special Star Wars Celebration V Event: Complete Event Coverage with Photos and Videos

Hi everyone!

We had a great time at the Last Tour To Endor (below, left) on Saturday night, we were happy we decided to go after going back and forth over it since the event was announced. One of the highlights of the evening was the show “Raiders of the Lost Jedi Temple of Doom: A Fan Film of Epic Proportions“, which was a combination of the Star Wars and Indiana Jones franchises. It was billed as a fan film – two fans, one who loves Star Wars and the other Indiana Jones, get together to create a film that combines both!
