Disney’s Art of Animation Resort Construction Update – Saratoga Springs Paddock Pool Enhancements – Photos and Video

Hi everyone!

We stopped by Disney’s Pop Century Resort yesterday to take a look at the Disney’s Art of Animation construction (below, left). It’s changed a lot since we were last there, with many guest buildings in the process of being built! Also, the years that were part of the Legendary Years resort (which never was completed) are now stripped from the main hall building (below, right). You can still see the outline of the numbers that were removed. Most of the main hall building can’t be seen from the Pop Century anymore due to the construction.

Walt Disney World Haunted Mansion Interactive Queue: Detailed Look – Photos and HD Video

Hi everyone!

The new Haunted Mansion interactive queue has been open sporadically over the last few days – but we kept missing it! Today we braved the heavy crowds again (below, left) to try our luck. We were happy that it was open, we have photos and video of the entire queue. Upon entering the queue, there is a row of busts (below, right). The busts were being detailed yesterday while the queue was closed off to guests.

Buy it Now – Jeff Lange Remembers: Liberty Square Classics

Jeff Lange takes you on a trip back in time to experience classic Walt Disney World “Liberty Square” attractions. This third volume in the series features the following:

The Hall of Presidents (1993)

The evolution of technology from “Great Moments with Mr. Lincoln” at Disneyland made way for this classic Walt Disney World attraction that also featured Abraham Lincoln in a primary speaking role. The production threads it’s way through history, from the formation of the Constitution, to the Whiskey Rebellion and The American Civil War. After a Saturn V rocket is shown lifting off as part of the current day film sequence, there is a great reveal  – all of the Presidents in audio-animatronic form, from George Washington to 1993 president George Bush. This is the original, opening day version (before the sitting President had a voice in the presentation).

Mike Fink Keel Boats (1992)

Step aboard the Bertha Mae for a unique tour of the Rivers of America! You’ll be reminded of the Jungle Cruise as the skipper tells jokes while passing the Davy Crockett’s Explorer Canoes (or as he calls them, “speed-bumps”) as well as the Indian Village and the Burning Settler’s Cabin that now stands without the flames. You’ll have a view the Richard F. Irvine Riverboat, which was later refurbished and put back into service as the Liberty Belle Riverboat. This is an opening day Walt Disney World attraction.

Haunted Mansion (1992)

Approach the Haunted Mansion that appears nearly as it did when it opened in 1971. Glance at spooky trinkets for sale before entering the original queue. All the classic gravestones are featured individually before the creaky doors open, beckoning you into the foyer. Once you slide into your Doom Buggy, you’ll glide past portraits with moving eyes and gaze upon cobwebs and orange spiders. Madame Leota’s head is stationary, resting in a crystal ball on her table. And as you enter the attic, the original bride with a beating heart creates a rhythm that will chill you to the core. Remember to beware of hitchhiking ghosts! This was recorded with an audio mixer and two microphones to capture the sounds in front of you and the narration from the speaker behind your head.

Haunted Mansion Bonus Ride (2006)

This nighttime ride-through is enhanced with night vision, which sets an eerie mood to the original graveyard and allows for the spooky details of the ride to be viewed clearly. The Haunted Mansion exterior is bathed in special Halloween smoke effects that truly make this a “ghostly retreat”. This was my final recording of the original Haunted Mansion and it offers a few special surprises – there’s no turning back now…

Relive these Liberty Square Classics year after year or experience the magic for the first time by purchasing a copy of “Jeff Lange Remembers Liberty Square Classics”.

New Haunted Mansion Hitchhiking Ghosts Projections, Bill Nye Presentation at Epcot, Flower & Garden Festival Preview – Photos & Video (Now in HD)

Hi everyone!

We spent the day at Epcot and the Magic Kingdom yesterday, but the highlight for me was seeing the new changes in the Haunted Mansion! New projections have replaced the audio-animatronics and older projections, but we were told this is temporary/transitional (below, left and right). So we’ll see if anything else happens, I definitely would like to see them keep the ghost that sits with you in the Doom Buggy!
