The Backstory for New Fantasyland will soon be revealed!

No one can entertain or build suspense like Disney.

After seeing this trailer video about the soon to be revealed backstory for New Fantasyland, I’m now counting down the days until the story will be revealed. Check out the trailer below – isn’t it great? I’m DYING to visit and step into this brand New Fantasyland.

You can sign up for backstory updates here on this special Finding New Fantasyland website.

Until all is revealed, I’m memorizing the updated brand new map of New Fantasyland and I’m continually scouting the web for more photos to be released of the various attractions in New Fantasyland as they all near completion.

Everything Disney does is simply awesome and I know this new expansion will be such an incredible addition to Magic Kingdom. My kids are already begging me to book our next trip – I’m thinking this is a great excuse to run the Disney Princess Half Marathon again in February!

Cinderella’s Castle looks Romantic for Valentine’s Day

Yes, it is possible to make Cinderella’s Castle even more romantic than it already appears. Take a peek at this photo:

A new segment of the “The Magic, The Memories, and You!” projection show on Cinderella Castle will cover the classic Magic Kingdom Castle with a very romantic overlay – complete with roses in one scen and a star-filled sky in another. . This theme debuted on Feb. 1st and will run the first half of Valentine’s month, until Feb. 15. The castle will also showcase some of the most romantic Disney animation moments – including scenes with Cinderella, Snow White, and Belle.

I’ve seen ” The Magic, The  Memories, and You!” once before – it is incredible. Unbelievably incredible. I can’t wait to see it again, but we arrive in Disney on Feb 24th for me to run the Disney Princss 1/2 marathon so we’ll just miss this “romantic” version.

 

 

Tips to Enjoy & Survive Walt Disney World in the Rain

Yep. We tackled the Magic Kingdom in the rain. Actually, make that a total downpour!  This advice will give you some good tips & tricks to help you survive and enjoy your rainy day at Walt Disney World. The plus side of rain is that crowds are low and lines will be very short to non-existent. We never even needed to use a fast pass and never waited more than 5 minutes for a ride on our wet adventure at Disney World. And my kids (ages 3 & 5) never once complained about the rain – in fact I think they thought it was quite exciting & the rain poncho was quite a novelty!

1. Long live the Rain Poncho

When the rain starts to fall, you’ll start seeing ponchos pop up everywhere. We highly recommend using the Disney ponchos you can buy just about everywhere in the parks. They are $8.00 (as of 1/18/11) and if it rips or tears you can return it to any vendor in the park and get a new one free of charge.  They are available in both child & adult sizes. A good poncho is essential as you need a thicker material and the right length with a hood to keep you dry.

2. Pack extra socks

The poncho provides such great coverage you probably won’t feel too terribly wet. Even in the torrential downpours we were in, they truly offered excellent coverage. However, our feet were another story. I mistakenly only packed extra socks for the kids so my feet were soaked through my wet sneakers. The kids LOVED me giving them new fresh socks mid-way through our sopping wet morning at the Magic Kingdom and trust me I was wishing I had thought to pack socks for Mom & Dad too.

3. Bring a Towel

Yes, really pack a small towel. Besides possibly drying off yourself at some point, you’ll really want this towel if you have kids in a stroller so you can wipe down the buggy in between rides to be sure you are keeping the kiddos dry and comfortable.  And if the sun comes out later after a quick shower, you’ll love this towel to dry off a park bench so you can sit and relax to enjoy the sunshine – and hopefully dry yourself out too!
