Hi everyone!

Jack Skellington and Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas (below, left) have been greeting guests at Epcot’s World Showplace in preparation for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! Jack and Sally (below, right) have never appeared at the Walt Disney World parks. They made their East coast debut last year at Downtown Disney, and will appear at Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party each night. They have been a fixture at Disneyland for years, we are glad to see them here!

Disney MagicBand Testing at Resort, Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios Attractions and Food Purchase, MyMagic+, FastPass+ – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Thanks to our friend Derek, we had the opportunity to test out the MyMagic+ MagicBands at both Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, using our MagicBands for three attractions each day. We checked in at the Hospitality desk at Disney’s All Star Music Resort (below, left), where we received our MagicBands and other information. Our MagicBands were handsomely presented in a large box (below, right), with our names.

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.

Mowgli, Baloo & King Louie RARE Surprise Meet at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Jungle Book Characters – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Mowgli from The Jungle Book made a very rare appearance at Disney’s Animal Kingdom today (below left and right). He was very curious about my video camera, asking what HD meant. I didn’t know what to say, but came up with “Mogli-Vision“. That became a recurring theme in the videos! This is a one-time only meet & greet, at least for now.
