Top Seven Disney Must Sees

Top Seven Disney Must Sees

If you have stayed at a Walt Disney World Resort you know that Disney has got it down when it comes to shameless self-promotion. Every time you turn on the TV it defaults to Disney TV and what is Disney TV’s favorite program? The Top Seven Disney Must Sees!

It updates from time to time as new rides open and old ones close but whenever you turn on the TV  you are going to see it first. In honor of the Top Seven Must Sees at Walt Disney World I am going to create my own. Feel free to add your own in the comments section. Continue reading Top Seven Disney Must Sees

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train is a family friendly roller-coaster combined with elements of a traditional Disney dark ride at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park. It was the last, and some would argue best, attraction constructed as part of Disney’s New Fantasyland expansion. The ride officially opened on May 28th, 2014.

Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe

Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe

If you are looking for a place to eat in the Magic Kingdom then Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe is an excellent choice. Located in Tomorrowland across from the Tomorrowland Speedway, Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe is the largest counter service restaurant in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. It also offers one of the largest choice of selections in the Magic Kingdom unless you want to do a much more expensive table service buffet. There is a catch to that variety, however, which will be covered later. Continue reading Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe

Win A Night’s Stay In the Haunted Mansion

Win A Night’s Stay In the Haunted Mansion!

How would you like to win a night’s stay in the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland in California? Well you could if enter a new contest sponsored by KTLA 5 in Los Angeles.

The mansion, which first opened in 1969, was originally conceived in the 1950s as a walk through attraction that ended in a restaurant which would be named the Museum of the Weird. That concept was abandoned in favor of what we know and love today.

The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland, which inspired versions at many other Disney theme parks.

Even though the facade was completed in 1963 it took 6 years to finish the attraction. Part of this was due to Disney’s work for the New York World’s fair in 1964 and 1965.

Since it’s 1969 opening it has been thrilling and chilling guests who ride through the attraction in doom buggies. Though the narrator, your ghost host, has always said there is room for one more no one has ever got to be that one more.

That will change with this contest as the winner and up to three guests get to spend the night in the Mansion. If read the fine print sleeping is not the only thing on the agenda. Cast members, aka as ghosts, will be interacting with the guests and there will be sound effects to remind the lucky winners that they are in a haunted mansion.

Walt Disney World Opening Day

MKCastle_01October 1, 1971 was opening day at Walt Disney World. Unfortunately I was not there. In fact I was not here. I was not born until, well sometime after that. Many of you probably missed it.

I really wish I had been there, as do many of you, but unless the Timekeeper or a blue fairy show up I think we will have to settle for this. It’s almost the same thing as having been there.

Okay it’s nothing like being there yourself but it is a good video!
