What Are Disney Extra Magic Hours

Walt Disney World is the most visited theme park in the world. The average daily attendance at just the Magic Kingdom is over 50,000 people. That means crowds. People do not like crowds so Disney has some special programs like Extra Magic Hours.

What are Extra Magic Hours?

Extra Magic Hours are special times that only select guests can enter the park. Sometimes they are offered in the morning and sometimes in the evening.  If they are offered in the morning it is generally one hour before the park opens to all guests. If it is evening hours the park is normally open two hours after the park closes. Continue reading What Are Disney Extra Magic Hours

Disney After Hours Summer 2018

Walt Disney World is a great place to go (I know big surprise you would find that opinion here) but that does not mean everything is great. One thing that is not great is sharing the parks with up to 50,000 other people. Disney knows this and Disney also knows some people will pay for the privilege of having lower crowds.  That is why they offer Disney After Hours. This year the event will be returning the Magic Kingdom on select nights from June through September.

What is Disney After Hours?

Disney After Hours is a hard ticket event. That means your standard Disney admission ticket will not get you into the event. You must purchase a special ticket for the event and Disney limits the number of tickets available. Unlike normal theme park tickets the tickets for this event are date specific and are normally non-refundable. Continue reading Disney After Hours Summer 2018

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge

Bog Iger, chairman and CEO of the Walt Disney Company, first announced that Star Wars was coming both Disneyland and Walt Disney World at the D23 Expo in August of 2015. He promised a unique and immersive experience but did not really give much in the way of detail. In fact he did not even give this new Star Wars land a name. In August of 2017 Bob Chapek, chairman of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, told us this new land will be called Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge but what else do we know about this new Star Wars land?

Tron Coming To Walt Disney World

Tron Coming To Walt Disney World

When Shanghai Disney opened in 2016 one of the biggest attractions was a Tron roller coaster. To be honest when I saw the videos I was more than a little jealous . When rumors started floating around I got a excited.  But rumors are just that which leaves us with the question, is Tron coming to Walt Disney World? I cannot give you a definite answer. Bob Iger won’t return my calls but we can look at what the Tron coaster is, how likely it might show up in the States and where it might fit.

Update: Woman Accused of Choking Teen

Woman Accused of Choking Teen

A few days ago I brought you the story of a woman accused of choking a teen at the Magic Kingdom. If you missed it you can read it here. Like I said in the original article I am not judging anything about the case because I was not there. Because I was not there I did not have both sides of the story.

Well now we have the other side of the story. The accused has hired a lawyer and tells things a little differently then the alleged choking victim. I am just telling you there is another side.

Woman Accused Of Choking A Girl at Disney

Did you ever think you would read a headline like this one, “woman accused of choking a girl at Disney”? Well now you have. Not only has the woman been accused she has been arrested!

 

Woman Accused Of Choking A Girl at Disney

Now before we get into the details I want to make one thing clear. A woman accused of choking a girl at Disney is not a woman convicted of choking a girl at Disney. It is an allegation at this point but the story is taking some Disney sites by storm and I wanted to bring it to your attention.

The accused woman is 41 year old Tabbatha Mature. According to the reports she was sitting in the Magic Kingdom waiting for the fireworks. Seated in front of her were several teenagers who were travelling with their school.Woman accused of choking a girl at Disney

When the fireworks began the teens stood up and Mrs Mature (if this is true the name certainly doesn’t fit!) began to complain. The teens then allegedly began to leave telling Mature she could have their spot. Continue reading Woman Accused Of Choking A Girl at Disney
