REVIEW - Storybook Dining at Artist Point with Snow White
DisneyDan  Thursday, June 6, 2019 7:09:06 AM
Hello everyone,

We recently dined at Artist Point for the first time to try the (relatively) new Storybook Dining with Snow White at Wilderness Lodge.

Wilderness Lodge is located on the southern shore of Bay Lake, southeast of the Magic Kingdom. You can get to Wilderness Lodge by bus from Epcot, Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom, or boat from the Magic Kingdom.

The restaurant is just off of the main lobby, to the northwest side of the building. Because of the way that Wilderness Lodge is built, although the restaurant is on the main/"ground" level, there are some pretty good views out towards Bay Lake.

The menu is a set price format, and you choose from a selection of set items. The cost is $55 per adult, plus tax and tip. Annual Passholders can get 10% off, making the the price $49.50, plus tax and tip. No drinks are included, and are at an additional cost.

Random Disney Friends Visit Town Square at the Magic Kingdom
DisneyDan  Friday, January 25, 2019 11:14:25 AM
Hello everyone,

Last week I talked about the (then) upcoming surprise character appearances at the Magic Kingdom as part of Mickey and Minnie's Surprise Celebration (for their 90th birthdays).

Well, last Friday saw the first day of the daily fun at the Flagpole in Town Square, and I was there everyday to see who came out! From what I understand from talking to cast members who were there everyday, these characters will remain the same for the foreseeable future, and even possibly until the end of the celebration in September. The days may change later on, just to make it fair to people who can't come on specific days of the week (because of work or school, etc), but the characters are likely to remain the same. Indeed, today, Nick and Judy are back in Town Square, as they were last Friday. Of course, as always with Disney, anything is subject to change at any moment, so we shall see what happens in a couple of weeks from now.

The characters that are a part of this new offering, so far at least, are: Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps (Zootopia), Phineas and Ferb (from their namesake TV show), Robin Hood, Little John, Friar Tuck and Prince John (Robin Hood), Chicken Little and Abby Mallard (Chicken Little), Remy and Emile (Ratatouille), and Gideon and J. Worthington Foulfellow (Pinocchio).

Important! - At time of writing, the characters begin at around 11.30am (usually with a slight delay), and end around 2.30pm, daily. It should be noted that the park schedule and/or the WDW app has been listing characters off and on as being in Town Sq until around 4.45pm. We found this to not be entirely true, and when they did appear after 3pm, they would just walk around and NOT stop for photos.

Christmas in the Magic Kingdom - A December 2017 Photo Report
DisneyDan  Tuesday, March 20, 2018 9:18:05 AM
Hello everyone,

It's supposed to be the first day of spring, but of course as these things go, it's snowing here in the mid-Atlantic region, so I thought I would share with you some photos from this past winter's festivities at the Magic Kingdom (December 2017). I won't share everything we did at the Magic Kingdom, because it's fairly standard otherwise, but I thought the holidays would be a fun theme for this frigid first day of spring!

A Photographic Tour of Pandora - The World of Avatar, at Disney's Animal Kingdom
DisneyDan  Tuesday, August 29, 2017 9:39:20 AM
Hello everyone,

Today I want to share with you a (rather large) selection of my photos from our recent adventures through Pandora - The World of Avatar, at Disney's Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World.

I'll give a few thoughts along the way, but I thought that on this occasion I would let my photos do most of the talking, and let you form your own opinions about the new land.

Let's start with some of the initial sights you'll see when entering Pandora from its main entry point, over the bridge from Discovery Island.
