From the What’s HapPINing blog on Disneypins.com: In other news, we mentioned we would be discussing Mickey Monsters this week. Guests who attended Disney Pin Trading Night last Friday at Walt Disney World® Resort had a first look at these new plush. We recently spoke with Denise Edelmaier, Product Developer for Dolls and Plush, and Wei Liu from the Development Team about these new creatures. “The basic story is that the Mickey Monsters are visiting the Disney Parks,” said Denise. “They try to blend in by disguising themselves as Mickey and a host of other characters that they encounter on their visit.” Series 1 will have six different Mickey Monsters, each with their own name, personality and story (which will be [...]
Dewayne Bevil of the Orlando Sentinel has more details on the “Pirates League” coming to Adventureland at the Magic Kingdom this summer, including pricing, an opening date, and when you can start making reservations: The new Pirates League will try to do for buccaneers what the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique has done for little princesses at Disney World.

These will be applied by a “veteran pirate” with sea-sailing tales. After taking a sacred oath and an official portrait, guests will be part of Jack Sparrow’s [...]
