Weekly Wind-Up for October 20, 2013

This week saw the introduction of Glow With the Show Ears at Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and just this Saturday at the Magic Kingdom for Celebrate the Magic and Wishes! The videos I watched really show the crowd enjoying the way that the Ears augmented these spectacular finales to the park-goers day.

While the cost may be prohibitive for some guests, it seems that there are enough willing to pay for them to really make a difference. Keep in mind that it looks better if people with the ears on are close enough to each other to be visible.

In other news, the MagicBand rollout continues and appears to be in full use by December 1. It appears that the Fort Wilderness Campground, Saratoga Springs, and The Grand Floridian will be the last of the resorts to begin the “testing” phase by the end of October. In addition, there are fewer big issues being reported through various Disney boards and chatrooms. Maybe, this will all work out well, after all.

Construction at the Disney Springs project appears to be moving forward. There are walls up near DisneyQuest and House of Blues, earthmovers are moving earth and cranes are helping to position supplies and equipment. Only time will tell how he development will be impacted. Personally, I am anxious to see it once completed!

I am a Disney fanatic who can't get nearly enough time to be there! I am married to someone who isn't as into it as I am, but tolerates my "hobby". I live in Ohio, but would love to make the move to Orlando, if I would work either at Walt Disney World, or in some peripheral business serving the WDW area! I invite you to read, comment, and submit ideas anytime at threestrandswdw@outlook.com. Or, even better, send me a trip report to share with others! We all like to live through the experiences of others, help us stay connected to the magic! Thank you!!
