WDWNT: The Magazine – “Have You Tried… Spending A Whole Day Resort Hopping?”

Have you tried… Spending a whole day resort hopping? by Katey McGregor Many of us know exactly how to spend an entire day in the parks.  Some know how to do all four parks in one day and still hit all the best stuff.  You know where to eat, where to play, and exactly how to get there.  And, many of us have even resort hopped or at least spent a day at the resort instead of hitting a park.  But, with over twenty different resorts at Walt Disney World,how in the world  do you spent a whole day resort hopping without missing something?  Well, the truth is, you can’t, but here’s a guide to show you how to hit [...]

WDWNT: The Magazine – “Marc Davis: Imagineering Master”

WDWNT: The Magazine – “Marc Davis: Imagineering Master”

Marc Davis: Imagineering Master By Daniel Butcher   Everyday guests of the Walt Disney World Resort enjoy the efforts of largely unknown and unnamed Imagineers.  Imagineer Marc Davis began to impact theme parks years before Walt Disney dreamed of Disneyland.  Davis was a late comer to attraction design, working in animation when Disneyland opened.  From animation to attraction design, Davis has left a mark on the Disney experience and his legacy continues today where it started, in film. Marc Fraser Davis was born March 30, 1913, in Bakersfield California.  But California is not where the Davis family stayed.  Davis’ father, Harry A. Davis, was a wandering jeweler and magician who attempted to strike it rich in the boomtowns of the [...]

WDWNT: The Magazine – “Escape from Casey Jr.” by Daniel Butcher

WDWNT: The Magazine – “Escape from Casey Jr.” by Daniel Butcher

Escape from Casey Jr. By Daniel Butcher You will probably find me strange.  It has been my dream to experience a significant evacuation from a Disney attraction.  I am convinced that it would be exciting and a cherished memory!  Seriously, how cool would it be to be walked off from Space Mountain with the lights on?  Would it not be great to see the Haunted Mansion from outside a Doom Buggy?  My daughter and I have both held our breaths as ours came to a halt in the graveyard scene.  Some may believe these sorts of incidents would lessen the magic, but for me it would only increase it! Sure I have had my near misses but nothing significant.  Several years [...]

WDWNT: The Magazine – To Our Readers

WDWNT: The Magazine – To Our Readers

When issue 19 of the magazine was released, the Letter from the Editor included a note that the magazine staff was taking a short break, and would use the downtime to consider improvements to the magazine. During that time, the magazine team considered many different options. Now the break is over, and I’m thrilled to announce that we are significantly changing the way we publish our content. Instead of releasing a monthly PDF version of the magazine, we are going to fully integrate our content into the main wdwnewstoday.com website. Our magazine articles will be published as featured content of the site. The plan is to publish a couple of articles each weekend. The articles will be highlighted as magazine [...]

WDWNT: The Magazine Issue 16 Released

We’re happy to announce the release of issue 16 of WDWNT: The Magazine. This is clearly turning out to be the Summer of Disney.  Although the calendar may not agree, the Disney Summer kicked off with The Avengers, and now hits the highest of high points with the opening of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street.  The transformation of Disney California Adventure has been nothing short of spectacular, and it’s given us fans something to enjoy for years to come.

WDWNT: The Magazine Issue 12 Released

WDWNT: The Magazine Issue 12 Released

Issue 12.  That’s now 760 pages of content going back to issue 1.  Back when we first started discussing this crazy idea of a free monthly magazine for Disney fans, we were not sure we would have enough content for issue 1, let alone 12 issues.  Now that issue 12 is here, our writers are still churning out great stories and the backlog of ideas just seems to be getting longer every month. As I look back at the last year of WDWNT: The Magazine, I am incredibly proud of what this team has accomplished.  No other group of in the Disney community is creating a monthly magazine containing top-notch writing combined with eye-catching graphics and photos and then giving [...]
