Hi everyone!

Here in Orlando, it’s the time of the year to get ready for Christmas! We attended the first three Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party nights (below, left). Christmas trees are set in front of the Main Street railroad station (below, right), and Mickey’s head is in the shape of a giant ornament.

Christmas Arrives at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Cinderella’s Holiday Wish Castle Dream Lights Begin at The Magic Kingdom – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Christmas has arrived at Walt Disney World! We stopped at Disney’s Hollywood Studios a couple of days ago, and found the Christmas tree in front of the park (below, left). The Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights (below, right) is debuting tomorrow night – it’s hard to believe the holiday season has begun in Orlando, just days after the last Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party.

New Fantasyland Be Our Guest Restaurant Dinner Review with Tour of The West Wing, Rose Gallery and Main Ballroom, Halloween at Fort Wilderness Campground

Hi everyone!

We were happy to be able to dine at Be Our Guest Restaurant (below, left) just a few nights back!  It was during a Cast Member preview of New Fantasyland, but they allowed us to come in and enjoy dinner. The ballroom is huge and beautiful, we especially love the falling snow in the windows (below, right). We requested the West Wing, which is where we dined.

MouseSteps Weekly Show #25, Be Our Guest Restaurant, Gaston’s Tavern Update, Pirates of the Caribbean Mermaids, Country Bears Cuts, Earl of Sandwich Holiday Menu & More

Hi Everyone!

Our Mousesteps Weekly show #25 this week has the most topics we’ve ever cover!

Mousesteps Weekly show #25 – Another look inside Be Our Guest Restaurant, Bon Jour Village Gifts, Gaston’s Tavern’s pork shank update, Pirates of the Caribbean Mermaids, Country Bear Jamboree cuts, Wreck-It Ralph meet-up, new merchandise and Earl of Sandwich holiday menu!

Included in this episode:

* Another look inside Be Our Guest Restaurant. We have been able to view the main ballroom, the hallway with suits of armor, and the counter service ordering location!

* We visit Bon Jour Village Gifts, which has offered a variety of Be Our Guest Restaurant items. The plates sell out so quickly!

* Gaston’s Tavern’s pork shanks and cinnamon rolls keep growing in size! It’s always nice to see guests get more for their money. On the flip side, we talk about the LeFou’s Brew plastic cup, which isn’t really exclusive at all. The same cup can now be found in Pinocchio’s Village Haus and at Sleepy Hollow Refreshments, but with different stickers.

* Mermaids are now in Pirates of the Caribbean, but we’ve had the hardest time finding them! We do have a view of the mermaid skeleton on the beach. Hopefully by next week, the effect will be fully working for us to share.

* The Country Bear Jamboree has been cut back significantly. We talk a little about the new show.

* We attended the Disney Parks Blog Wreck-It Ralph meet-up, which was a lot of fun. We were able to see the film, and enjoyed a couple of hours inside DisneyQuest.

* There is a ton of new merchandise being added to the parks! We talk about a handful of those items, including shirts and men’s briefs.

* And last but not least, The Earl of Sandwich now has it’s holiday sandwich out – but also an extended holiday menu that includes turkey chili and peppermint brownie. It’s all excellent!

Recorded  10/23/12 Featuring Commentary from Denise Preskitt and Jeff Lange.

New Fantasyland Opens for Dress Rehersal, Little Mermaid Queue and Ride, Gaston’s Tavern, Be Our Guest Restaurant Plus Country Bear Jamboree Re-Opens – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

New Fantasyland opened for previews last Friday! We had known about the upcoming preview for days, but we were in Pittsburgh until Saturday – we are very happy that our friends Daniel and Corinne Andersson shot footage for us!  You can see the video below the photos, they were the very first guests in line, and the very first guests to enter New Fantasyland. We did make it into this area after the Swan & Dolphin Food & Wine Classic on Saturday – tired from our flight, but excited to see the expansion for ourselves. I think we’ve been there 4 times now! We never waited long for Under the Sea – Journey of the Little Mermaid (below, left). The longest wait was 20 minutes, but it was more often than not that we walked right on. The Mermaid queue is detailed and exquisite, and there is no way to take a bad photo here (below, right).
