Our good friend Robert Ashburn of FloridaThrills.net has provided us with yet another photo update from the Walt Disney World Resort, so let’s take a look at what’s new and exciting: It’s going to be a busy day….
Our good friend Robert Ashburn of FloridaThrills.net has provided us with a few photos from his trip to Walt Disney World on Thursday:
5/15/10 UPDATE – WDI and WDW have stated that they are not adding characters to the attraction at this time. The classic Magic Kingdom attraction “it’s a small world” is now listed on the Walt Disney World website as closed for refurbishment from August 1st through October 22nd, 2010. While we have no idea what could be part of this refurbishment, it is really strange to see an attraction that just received an extensive overhaul 5 years ago closing for an extended period of time. Is it possible that some Disney characters might be added to a few scenes of the attraction, much like they appear at Disneyland and Hong Kong Disneyland? We’ll just have to wait and see. Stay [...]
We finally have details on what guests can expect when the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror at Disney’s Hollywood Studios debuts a special ride experience for Summer Nightastic!, from the Mickey Monitor passholder publication: As part of Summer Nightastic!, Walt Disney Imagineers came up with even more unexpected thrills in the Hollywood Tower Hotel! If you listen closely, you can hear the distant rumble of thunder, not to mention the giggles from the disembodied voice of a child. New lighting and sound effects will add to the new experience, bringing Guests into the eerie halls of the Hollywood Tower Hotel. Throughout the summer, you’ll find the eerie blue lights and lightning crashing around The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. It’s [...]
According to park schedules released by Disney, “The Main Street Electrical Parade” and the “Summer Nightastic! Fireworks Spectacular” should be debuting early. The parade and fireworks are set to begin one night earlier than expected on Saturday, June 5th, with Electrical Parade at 9PM and the Fireworks Spectacular at 10PM. For those who wish to catch Spectromagic and Wishes! one more time before they “glow” away for the Summer, you can see them on June 4th at 9PM and 10PM respectively. A strange note: the only night of “Summer Nightastic!” that is not scheduled to feature a Main Street Electrical Parade performance is Wednesday, June 9th. Other than that, the parade is set to perform every night through August 14th [...]
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing one of the co-creators of the Main Street Electrical Parade (and the creator of the the Polynesian Luau, Hoop-De-Doo-Review, and Diamond Horseshoe Saloon Revue, among many other Disney World entertainment offerings), Ron Miziker. You can hear the entire interview on Episode 140 of the WDW News Today Podcast, which is available for download now on our podcast directory page and on Itunes through subscription to the podcast only.
Whether you approach The Magic Kingdom by monorail, boat, bus, or on foot, the sight of the train station and what waits just beyond it always brings a smile to even the most seasoned of park travelers. Part of the magic (and genius) to the design of the Magic Kingdom, as well each of the parks, is the amount of detail that is given to each and every object. Nothing was put there by accident, but is part of a very well thought out plan to create the most immersive and realistic experience for every guest; even those who have been there many times. If you have taken “Disney’s Keys to the Kingdom” or “Backstage Magic” Tours you learned about [...]
Big things are happening at the Magic Kingdom right now and WDWNT Reporter Brandon Struve visited the Magic Kingdom last night to see exactly what’s going on at the world’s leading theme park: ‘Tis a stormy night on the Seven Seas…. lagoon….
