If you've ever looked down while walking around in the the Dumbo area of Magic Kingdom, chances are you've seen the above picture. Those aren't real peanuts (whew, for us food allergy folks! and a heads up so you don't get a shock your first visit) but a clever detail and a bit of Imagineering. You'll also find animal tracks, hidden mickeys and more hidden in the concrete at Disney World! All created with intent!
Buzz Lightyear's Space Ranger Spin has been having some changes made to it's queue, to allow for more room for the fast pass holders. Rumor has it, this fantastic console will be taken out! I hope not! This is a favorite of our kids, and I love it too! It really sets the stage for the ride, and makes you feel like you are a Space Ranger about to jump in your ship. Will you miss this too, if they remove it?
Amazon and Disney have joined forces! Every month in 2020, Amazon is going to have an exclusive Mickey plush for sale! Additionally, they have a few other only on Amazon items! This is all part of the celebration of the Lunar New Year, and the Year of the Mouse (technically it's year of the rat)
Reminiscent of the Disney Store Exclusive plush last year, these dolls are (so far) at a price point of $29.99. Each plush comes boxed, and it about 16 inches high. These aren't the only things Mickey, there is much more to look at by clicking here.
I went to buy a few Disney gift cards for our upcoming trip. We enjoy having a few different cards, the kids each have a different design, then we have a different design for food, then one for souvenirs, etc. Well, those days might be gone.
Disney no longer offers the huge collection of gift card designs. They have two to pick from now. Two. Standard Mickey, and Frozen 2.
Disappointed, I wrote, asking what happened and "To improve efficiency and an overall better experience, we recently updated our gift card vendor, which did result in the decline in available designs. "
I'm not sure how it improves anyone's experience to no longer have dozens of card designs to pick from, but I suppose it does improve the efficiency, on their end.
RIP Gift card designs! And if you are lucky enough to still have some of your old cards, might want to save them!
As expected, Disney + is filled with so much nostalgia. An absolute gem are some of the movies, like Frank and Ollie, but also this little gem from 1966. Aired three days after Walt's passing, join him as he takes you around Disneyland. The fist episode of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color is available, and an absolute treat to watch.
If you don't have Disney +, I did find this on Youtube, for you to enjoy.
