Fire at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

2 Nov

A fire started last night on an area of fake grass on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train following the Magic Kingdom fireworks.

No one was injured and the fire did not damage the train itself. The fire started some time before 11pm and the attraction reopened around midnight.

The Reedy Creek Fire Department responded to the fire.

Need a great MNSSHP costume for your Prince or Princess? Check this company out!!

16 Sep

I came across a really cool company recently that I wanted to share with all of you!

Mom Approved Costumes makes costumes for dress-up, Halloween and any other reason your child can find to don a costume (and let’s be honest, even grocery shopping seems to be a reason for some kids!). These aren’t your regular glittery, itchy, way-too-warm-for-Florida costumes, these are comfy and very well made. Every parent that has ever taken their child to Walt Disney World has dealt with the pressure to have the princess dress or the pirate get-up, but they have also seen the pile of glitter and itchy mess those costumes leave behind. They’re usually not machine washable (bye-bye ice cream cone) and they give you a full-blown panic attack each time your child climbs into a ride vehicle or sits on a curb for the parade! I can’t tell you how many times we had to take the Cinderella dress on and off throughout a day at the Magic Kingdom last year. She wanted it on for pictures but it was too itchy for rides. She’d ask to have it on for the parade (the princesses would see her!) but then she was too warm to keep it on!

I was impressed by the prices of the costumes. Instead of the scary price tag you find in the parks, most of the prices I found on the site were in the $30-$40 range. You can put these babies right in the washer and move along with your day!

So what do you think? Will you be dressing your little one up this trick-or-treat season? This website might be worth checking out if so!

Maelstrom is officially becoming a “Frozen” themed ride

12 Sep

Just in case we weren’t already guessing this, check out this article from the Orlando Sentinel. Disney has officially confirmed that the Norwegian boat ride will be leaving and Anna and Elsa are moving in.

Changes to this year’s holiday offerings at the Magic Kingdom are coming as well. Check out the details here: http:// http://www.orlandosentinel.com/travel/attractions/theme-park-rangers-blog/os-disney-frozen-ride-epcot-maelstrom-20140912-post.html

So what do you think? Is this a good move for Epcot or is World Showcase becoming too character saturated? Let us know in the comments below!

Hi everyone!

I wanted to let you all know that I have started a Go Fund Me drive to improve the site and, in the (hopefully) near future, purchase the equipment and software necessary to start a podcast. If you enjoy the content you find on the site, a donation in any amount would mean the world to me. Just go to http://www.gofundme.com/3111worlddrive to help us out.

Also, if you are someone you know is a huge Disney fan and has experience in radio shows, podcasting, etc. I would love to talk to you! While a one-woman show is doable, I feel that a conversational podcast is the direction I’d like to go.

Thank you all and have a wonderful day!

Jess
