First, the Rivers Of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will begin floating past the crowd on February 17, 2017!  This nighttime experience has had a few setbacks along the way, but I have faith that WDI has solved the mysteries that have eluded them and will bring a spectacular show!  Related to this event, Disney has also announced that there will be dinner packages available to get preferred seating for Rivers Of Light. Eligible restaurants include Tusker House, where you can choose to eat Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner for $37 for adults and $23 ages 3 – 9, tax and gratuity not included.  And Tiffin’s, where you get appetizer, entree, dessert and a non-alcoholic beverage at a cost of $67 per adult and 32 for ages 3 – 9, with tax and gratuity not included.

Next, say goodbye to Wishes!  Beginning on May 12 a new fireworks spectacular will be taking place in the Magic Kingdom! This new show will include music and clips from some of Disney’s newer films.  Look for Zootopia, Moana, Brave, Big Hero 6, and many others! The Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party will continue to be offered and will offer some of the better views of the new fireworks!  Take a look at the video that Disney released!  This is going to excite you!!

Thanks for reading, my friends!

Keeping the Magic Alive!!



Well, we finally have some dates for the openings that we have all been waiting for!

DAK SignThanks to CEO Bob Iger, we now know that Pandora-The World of Avatar is set to open to the public on May 27, 2017 in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!  That’s Memorial Day weekend, the unofficial beginning of summer, for those of us in the U.S.  I think that the new attractions and adventures will bring a new life into DAK, and awaken the nighttime activity.  In Pandora, guests will be able to get their eating, drinking and shopping on in the new outlets within this land.


Also announced, was the ‘opening’ of Star Wars at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, as well as, Disneyland California.  However, in the usual cryptic style, a SPECIFIC date was left out of the announcement.  At this point, we have been told that the new land will open sometime in 2019.  If I had to venture a guess, I’d say probably around Memorial Day of 2019. also!

There was no mention of the progress or an opening for Toy Story at DHS.

Keeping the Magic Alive!!


As of today, one of my favorite places to hit is closed!  I can’t believe it!  I am hoping, beyond hope, that it may return after all of the construction in some form or another!  Oh, what am I writing about?  The famed Disney’s Hollywood Studio quick service goodie shop, Starring Rolls, has closed it’s doors!

I don’t know about any of you, but I loved this place!  They had good sized sandwiches, tasty treats of all kinds, and specialties only found at this spot in all of WDW!  Can you say, Butterfinger Cupcake?


With all it had to offer and a nice outdoor sitting area with a view of folks headed down Sunset Blvd. toward Rock N Rollercoaster or Tower of Terror, this will be a strongly missed venue!

A moment of silence, please?

Thanks for reading and remember…
