Weekly Update – April 25, 2015

We are just one week away from the 1st anniversary of the Dad For Disney blog.  While there will be no special celebration (sorry, no cake and ice cream for our followers).  There will be a round-up of the articles from week and the most popular articles of the year.  Here, though, is this week’s round-up:

We opened the week by taking a spin on The Matterhorn at Disneyland.

Then had a healthy debate about if we will ever see a new country added to the World Showcase lineup.

Wordless Wednesday had an Earth Day theme and saw some nature.

The Orange Loop of the Magical Blogorail took us around the value resorts at Walt Disney World.  My stop took us to the Art of Animation.

We closed the week out by taking four rides on Spaceship Earth.  One ride for each narrator of the attraction.

Dad For Disney has some big news which will be announced on the Facebook group later today.

Thanks for reading!

News Bites and Weekly Update – August 16

Another busy week for the Dad For Disney blog.  I’m going to close the week with a couple of news bites and some goings on at the blog for the next 10 days.

First, the news bites:

  • The Frozen Sing Along at Hollywood Studios is now a Fastpass+ attraction for the rest of its run.  The attraction is scheduled to end on September 28.
  • The closure date of the American Idol Experience has been moved up from January 2015.  The attraction’s last day is now scheduled for August 30, 2014.

The next 10 days are going to be travel filled days for me.  I’ll be going to Hershey and Philadelphia for my annual dad-daughter road trip.  After we return from Philadelphia, my wife and I will be traveling to Walt Disney World for the Villains Unleashed party.  As a result, I will be blogging less (this is a one man show) but tweeting more.  So, the best way to stay up to date, especially during the Villains Unleashed party, is to follow me on twitter: @DadForDisney.
