Disney Vinlymation goes into Space

A long standing tradition of taking mementos into space that started in 1961 with NASA astronaut Lt. Col. Virgil Ivan “Gus” Grissom,  when he took a roll of dimes has now included Disney's Vinylmation. These cute little figures have now been to space and back on the Shuttle Atlantis. The hope is when they come back from Space and are put on display the story of where they have been and what they represent will inspire new Space Explorers. WOW

Star Wars Weekends RETURN

Dis Fact :  The first time Star Tours opened was in Disneyland was January 9, 1987.

Now Star Tours is re-opening in WDW in Florida to much anticipated Wait, with a new story and C-3PO returning to be our guide. Anthony Daniels is the only actor to be involved in each Star Wars project, he is the voice of C-3PO after all. And don't forget the Jedi training Academy for those Padawan's 12 and under.

New Twists at Disney's Haunted Mansion

For the longest time the Haunted Mansion has been one of our favorite rides at Magic Kingdom. But year after year we would ride it thinking wouldn't it be great to maybe make it more scarier? Do they have the technology to make it scarier? Well finally Yes, they do.
It comes at one of our favorite parts of the ride, at the end when the ghosts actually appear to be joining you in the doom buggy. But,what if they could actually jump in the doom buggy with you, Or at least make it feel like they were. I was so glad to hear the technology had come along for them to make the ghosts seem more real. And not by projecting them as they have done in the past, but by making sculptured heads and by adding new costumes, making the ghosts appear more life-like. These more intricate, detailed sculptures added to the depth the ghosts have needed in order to appear more real. Now imagine these new updated ghosts with lips and eyelids. The Disney Imagineers have brought the hitchhiking ghosts to life, so they are now able to interact with the guests.

I also cannot wait to go and experience the updates in the queue. The Haunted Mansion being one of the most popular rides at Disney World has traditionally had very long wait times and this will make the wait time seem to go faster.
First, the queue line has been moved to enjoy a better view of riverboat and the river. Second, a new cemetery, and an interactive organ that guests can touch were added along the way. Third, there are also playing instruments on the side of a crypt. These are only some of the new & exciting things added along the way inside, I don't want to give it  all away.

Please, Let me know if anyone has been on it since the changes. Thanks.

Something to do on A Disney Cruise

From hanging out with Captain Hook,to becoming a pirate yourself, swimming in a pool shaped like Mickey and even a Toy Story show. Who wouldn't enjoy that? When we went I can't rave enough about the great service and great food, even room service brought us giant cookies and warm milk. Just remember to bring all necessary toiletries they are quite expensive on the boat. Sailing on the Magic with Goofy hangin' out back..

More needs to be done

About 3 months ago a young boy in our area committed suicide, It is unimaginable what this family has been going through. I can only imagine since I have 2 young children myself and life without them would be unimaginable. The young man, named Kameron was bullied. This is such an ongoing problem and I know the schools are doing information programs at school, but that's only a part solution. The bullying just continues the next day. Kids don't realize the consequences. MY son too has been bullied a lot this year and it breaks your heart because you can't protect them in school. That's the schools job to protect them while they are there.

So I say to all the parents the change needs to start at home, talking to your kids, question them, bug them if you have too (in a funny way) so they don't clam up. But TALK to your kids even if you don't think your kid is being bullied or just
Maybe you are the parent of the one doing the bullying..
Please check out the memorial held for him on what would have been his 15th birthday..

Animal Planet Gulf Oil Spill

I thought it was important to get an update on the gulf spill. We care about the environment & all the things in it.

thanks for your support...

Hidden Mickeys

Always a challenge to find them, but if you have the book you won't beleive where they have hidden them. And better yet you won't miss any. This does take extra time all the hunting so plan accordingly. Some of the rides may have to be ridden several times to see all the Mickey's. We tried this at Magic Kingdom on Snow White, very well hidden Mickey's in there and it's dark..Look fast while on some of the rides, you may miss the ears..
