When Shanghai Disney land opened the Tron Roller Coaster amazed guests. Officially called the Tron Lightcycle Power Run this coaster allowed people to strap into a lightcycle and enter the world of Tron.
Needless to say guests at American parks were a little jealous until it was confirmed that Tron was coming to the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World. That announcement left some room for speculation. Where would it go? Would anything be closed to make way for it? Continue reading Tron Roller Coaster at the Magic Kingdom→
Why did talking Mickey Mouse go away? Did you even know there was a talking Mickey? (If not then you need to check out this page.) No, not the one in the stage shows. There was a meet and greet in the Magic Kingdom with Mickey Mouse and he talked to you! His mouth moved and his eyes blinked but now he is no more. So what happened? Continue reading Why Did Talking Mickey Mouse Go Away→
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→
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.
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. I am not taking either side because I was not there. Continue reading Update: Woman Accused of Choking Teen→
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.
For years people have showed up early to be among the first to enter the Magic Kingdom. As a bonus they got to see the Magic kingdom welcome show. But now Disney is replacing the Magic Kingdom welcome show with something totally different.
The current welcome show actually takes place outside of the Magic Kingdom. Guests line up in front of the Mainstreet USA train station. Performers sing a welcome song. The mayor of Mainstreet USA makes a little speech and then the Walt Disney Railroad brings in Mickey and his friends. Disney has normally selected a family from the crowd to “help” Mickey. Eventually Mickey counts down from 10 and the gates are opened.
The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort is the most visited theme park in the world but there is one thing some guests have been missing. They would like to have a drink. Until 2012 that was completely impossible. Since 2012 it was not easy to get alcohol in the Magic Kingdom but starting next week it will get a little easier according the the Orlando Sentinel.
The Magic Kingdom will still be drier than the other theme parks. There will still be some major restrictions for alcohol in the Magic Kingdom. In fact Disney is only adding alcohol to the menu at four locations which means there will be five places total in the Magic Kingdom where you can get something a little stronger than a Dole Whip Float.
