Last month when my family was in Orlando, we decided to make a side trip to have a breakfast with some Minions and other characters at Universal’s Royal Pacific Resort. My daughter and I are both huge fans of the Minions. We wanted to find a way to meet them without spending the money on a one-day ticket to Universal.
I returned from Walt Disney World on Sunday and one of the highlights of the trip was my evening at Hollywood Studios. Hollywood Studios is undergoing a massive transformation with addition of Star Wars Land and the expansion Pixar Place. Even with this transformation, there are still enough attractions and events to keep people in the parks all day.
On Saturday, I’ll be in the World for my family’s annual week-long trip. It’s a great chance to relax, refresh, and recharge as well as seeing what new things have been added to the parks and resorts. Continue reading Upcoming December Trip
I am someone who does not like Halloween. I don’t like dressing up. I don’t like buying candy and giving it out to the neighborhood kids. I use just put it in a bowl and leave it on my front step. However, at Disney, that all changes. I’ve been to two Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Parties. I dressed up for one. I didn’t for other because it was too hot to be in costume. Disney, in my opinion, does a great job with the Halloween party. They turn Halloween into a fun event compared to all the work I have to put in at home to make Halloween enjoyable.
It was announced late last week that more closures would be coming to Hollywood Studios in order to make way from the upcoming expansion of Toy Story Land and Pixar Place. The coming closures take up a massive footprint of the park. Everything north of the Great Movie Ride toward Muppetvision 3-D (not closing) will be closing on April 2nd. What attractions does this entail?
Closing attractions: Lights, Motor, Action, Monsters Inc. Meet & Greet, Honey I Shrunk the Kids Playground, The Streets of America, Watto’s Grotto, The Prop Shop, Studio Catering Company, and Youze Guys Merchandise.
