Cinderella Castle front angle, Magic Kingdom Park

Disney World is a massive property, with four theme parks, two water parks, a shopping and dining complex, and numerous hotels. With that in mind, there are constant updates and changes happening behind-the-scenes at the Most Magical Place on Earth. When you’re visiting, you may want to prepare for different Disney World closures, scheduled for […]

Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance

I am a BIG Star Wars fan. Always have been since my senior year in high school when Star Wars came out. So I was really, really excited and a little wary to try Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance (RoR). You never know with a new ride whether it will meet with expectations or […]

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge

I have to admit, since 1977, I have been enthralled by Star Wars. The time I first saw “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away“, I was hooked. I’ve dreamed of living in that galaxy ever since. Now I can, because on August 29, 2019, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge – Disney’s BEST. […]

The Great Movie Ride

The Great Movie Ride closed permanently on August 13, 2017, to make way for a brand new attraction – Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway.   The Great Movie Ride at Disney World Hollywood Studios is a ride that has great scenes from great movies. OK, enough sarcasm; if you like old movies, this ride is for […]

The Muppets Present Great Moments In American History

The Muppets are taking over the Magic Kingdom. That’s right, the Muppet show has come to, of all places, Liberty Square where The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History. It’s the history of America told in true Muppet style. Since it’s the Muppets, you know there will be a few “wokka wokkas” to go […]

Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Questions

So now that we have an opening date for Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, a lot of questions have come up. A whole lot. I thought it would be appropriate to have a single page to answer questions instead of trying to look at a bunch of different pages. So let’s dive in. Oops, one quick […]

Tom Sawyer Island

Tom Sawyer Island is one place in Frontierland in the Magic Kingdom that doesn’t feel like the rest of Walt Disney World. Tom Sawyer Island is a sprawling, rustic playground placed right in the middle of the Rivers of America. This is a great place for kids to burn off some steam–I mean, assuming they […]

Up! A Great Bird Adventure

Twilight Zone Tower of Terror
