Watching Wishes With FastPass+

wishes-fastpass-plus-viewingWith the addition of FastPass+ came new options for using your FP selections.  One of these is Wishes. You can now reserve a spot for you and your party at Wishes! If you have tried to grab a prime spot for Wishes, you know the hassle!  You need to be there early and hold that spot--sometimes with personal security guards. Now you can use your FP+ and walk up to your viewing location with no wait.  Even better, the spot for FP+ viewing is very large with tons of room to spread out.  The night we watched Wishes from there, there was no on standing within 10 feet of us.  Not the same experience you get on Main Street!

LeFou’s Brew, Quite a Treat for You!

Cheers to Le Fou's Brew at Gaston's TavernThis week New Fantasyland reached a milestone, selling 100,000 orders of Gaston’s Tavern’s signature drink, “LeFou’s Brew.” To celebrate this milestone, I ventured to the cozy cottage like restaurant in Magic Kingdom Park with my friends Kelly and Betsy (pictured below) to try it for the first time. It was the perfect treat for a sunny day!     Pictured below, I’m enjoying a frothy mug in Gaston’s chair, a centerpiece of Gaston’s Tavern.  It’s one of my absolute favorite places for a souvenir photo.  To find the famous chair, enter the Tavern and head to the room on the right.  You’ll spot it ...

Fireworks on the Fantasy

fireworks-disney-fantasy Pirate Party Fireworks on the Disney Fantasy January 15, 2013 Shooting fireworks on the DCL proved to be a challenge. It's not like Wishes where I've seen the show dozens of times and know the scenes. I didn't even know where the bursts would be! Thankfully a few cast members helped me find a great position for the show. The next challenge was the all the bursts happen in about the same spot in the sky. For us that like long exposures of fireworks, this is a problem. They were just piling up on top of each other. So this show is a composite of 3 different bursts. I moved them around a little ...

New Dumbo at Disney World

New Dumbo at Walt Disney WorldOne of the new Dumbo rides is already open, then other is being tested.  But what's under the tent?  The Disney Parks Blog released two photos today! According to the Blog: This innovative queue area will completely redefine what it means for guests to prepare for a Disney attraction. Here’s how it will work: Guests arrive at Dumbo’s big top and receive a circus ticket pager that virtually holds their place and notifies them when it’s their turn to board the attraction. Kids (and kids of all ages) can then become part of the show inside the tent by enjoying circus-themed play experiences, while Dumbo flies high above....
