So, 2012 is coming to a close and you’re probably now asking, “Well, what is happening at Walt Disney World in 2013?” It’s going to be nearly impossible to top all the changes and additions we had in 2012 at the Vacation Kingdom of the World, but there will be a steady diet of exciting offerings coming in 2013: Princess Fairytale Hall Disney princesses including Cinderella, Aurora, Snow White, Jasmine, Tiana and Rapunzel will have a new home for meeting their loyal subjects when Princess Fairytale Hall opens in 2013 in the shadows of Cinderella Castle.

We’ve seen some interesting changes to Disney PhotoPass recently, but the most interesting has to be this booth I came across at the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co.

We have a short video of the party to share with you:

Walt Disney World cast members are currently testing FastPass+ at the Magic Kingdom and Disney’s Hollywood Studios through Saturday. I got to play around with the registration system a bit earlier today and I have to say it is looking a lot better than it was during the last testing period. Here’s what we have learned about the process: Once you log-in, each guest can choose a character avatar (only 8 available now) and mark if they are celebrating anything The current test allows one day at Magic Kingdom and one day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios You pick the day you want to visit that park… The current test allows you to pick one experience from the first category and [...]
