With Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas quickly approaching, many families are eagerly counting down the days to their Walt Disney World vacation. If your family will be visiting Walt Disney World this holiday season, you’ll want to be aware of the scheduled refurbishments listed below before you make your way to the Most Magical Place on Earth.
In “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” the all-star cast from the 2010 blockbuster is back with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter who’s desperately searching for his family; Anne Hathaway as Mirana, the kind, mild-mannered White Queen; Helena Bonham Carter as Iracebeth, the short-tempered, big-headed Red Queen; and Mia Wasikowska as Alice, the heroine at the heart of the story.
Beauty And The Beast has always been one of my favorite Disney films. From the very first time I saw the movie, I fell in love with the characters, the story, and the music. Over the years, I’ve watched the film numerous times, with each viewing being just as entertaining as the first.
Each year as the leaves begin to change colors, the Magic Kingdom is also transformed with the colors of fall. Main Street, U.S.A. comes to life with pumpkins, scarecrows, and beautiful wreaths made from autumn leaves. A few years ago, as I celebrated my birthday at Walt Disney World, I was able to once again experience the beautiful colors of fall at the Magic Kingdom.
The most explosive clash to ever rock the Marvel Cinematic Universe ignites a firestorm of conflict in the game-changing epic, Captain America: Civil War. In the wake of collateral damage, government pressure to rein in the Avengers drives a deep wedge between Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), causing a catastrophic rift that escalates into an all-out feud.
Fall is one of the best times to visit Walt Disney World. Main Street, U.S.A. is decorated with the colors of autumn. Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween party invites guests to dress in costume and trick-or-treat with Mickey and friends. Fall bring cooler temperatures and reduced crowds to the parks, as well.
As I sat in the dark, an epic battle was taking place before my eyes. Mowgli, Baloo, and Bagheera, characters I’d known and loved my entire life, had come alive and were fighting for their lives, as well as, their home. Suddenly, the most fearsome tiger I’d ever seen leaped into view, startling everyone watching in the theater, myself included.
Early concept drawings of Disneyland featured an eerie house filled with happy haunts. While most haunted houses were filled with terrifying ghosts and ghouls, Walt Disney wanted his haunted house to present a more comedic experience for his guests. The ghosts would sing, dance, and play jokes on each other creating an attraction fitting for guests of all ages.
The summer is quickly drawing to a close, and soon the Magic Kingdom will be filed with pumpkins, candy, and trick-or-treaters. While there are not currently a large number of refurbishments scheduled for the parks, refurbishments are scheduled for a couple of the most popular Disney attractions.
Epcot’s Test Track has been delighting Future World guests since the late 1990’s and continues to do so with the 2012 overhaul of the attraction’s theme. Reaching speeds of up to 65 mph, Test Track is a must do for any thrill-seeking guest at Walt Disney World. Let’s take a look at what makes Test Track one of Epcot’s best attractions.
Summer is well underway! The Florida sun is hot, the parks are crowded, and it’s my favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World! For me, nothing says 4th of July like a trip to the Most Magical Place On Earth. Cinderella Castle is decorated with red, white, and blue at night. The American Adventure helps guests get in a patriotic mood. And of course, there’s also the fireworks.
The plan for the day was to visit Animal Kingdom and then park hop to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to see the new Star Wars fireworks show; however, after five hours of visiting many of our favorite Animal Kingdom attractions, we decided it would be fun to visit Magic Kingdom for a while. So we headed to the bus stop, only to watch the Magic Kingdom bus pull away as we walked.

A single pair of shoes is capable of changing a girl’s life, or at least that’s what Cinderella would tell you. The same could also be said of a pair of shoes and your Disney vacation.
