Magic Kingdom Christmas Tree, Disney Fastpass+ Testing, New Fantasyland Entertainment: The Royal Majesty Makers and The Giggle Gang – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We finally had the chance to see the Magic Kingdom Christmas tree this year, which went up after the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade taping (below, left). It is pretty much the same as in previous years, with a train, toy soldiers, gifts and more under the tree including a reference to Walt Disney’s personal Carolwood Pacific “Fair Weather Route” railroad. (below, right).

Video #1 – Magic Kingdom Christmas Tree 2012, Walt Disney World – This is the Magic Kingdom Christmas Tree – including up-close detail, for 2012! The tree is pretty much the same as in previous years, with a train, toy soldiers, gifts and more under the tree including a reference to Walt Disney’s personal Carolwood Pacific “Fair Weather Route” railroad.

Denise and I were invited by our friend Derek to try out the Cast Member FastPass+ test (below, left). We were all issued green FastPass+ cards with our name and ride information stored (below, right). Our first ride was to have been Space Mountain, but due to Disney transportation issues, we were late. Derek was able to change our Space Mountain ride to a different time (he rode it himself), and we soon met Derek at the Haunted Mansion for our first attraction.

Magic Kingdom Update: Be Our Guest Restaurant, Enchanted Forest, Former Skyway Station, Country Bears Pre Refurb, Grand Floridian Water Playground – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

Yesterday we went to the Magic Kingdom to see the last shows of Country Bear Jamboree before it went down for refurbishment. There is talk that several minutes might get cut from the show, so we wanted to make sure to capture it in photos and video just in case. But first, we took a look at New Fantasyland progress, and found that the sign for the Be Our Guest Restaurant is now up! Behind it appears to be a griffin (below, left). The Be Our Guest sign (below, right) features a rose and several symbols.

Celebrating Disneyland’s 57th Birthday at Walt Disney World, Former Fantasyland Skyway Station Area, Fantasyland Bonjour! Village Gifts and Gaston’s Taven – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

I’ve had the opportunity to celebrate Disneyland’s birthday (July 17th) in person many times in the past, including at the big media event for the 50th! But there are years that we don’t get to Disneyland in July – so we celebrate instead at the Magic Kingdom (below, right). We celebrated the 57th birthday of Disneyland on a very rainy day at the park. Our tradition is to ride opening day Disneyland attractions, but some of them are outside, so we couldn’t really be too choosy!
