Three Must See 3-D Attractions!


We all know that Walt Disney World offers a wide variety of entertainment, from thrill rides and onstage performances, to 3-D attractions.  You will never be bored on Disney property!  While most 3-D movies at your hometown theaters can be impressive or leave you wanting more, Disney’s offerings of 3-D isn’t just a visual experience!

Narrowing it down to just three must see 3-D attractions is hard for me.  I’m always amazed at what Disney brings next and while 3-D has been around for a long time, there is always something new to make you jump out of your seat cheering for more.  So what are my personal three must see 3-D attractions?

3.   It’s Tough to be a Bug - Located in the Tree of Life in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, It’s Tough to be a Bug is full of spiders, beetles, butterflies and many other creepy-crawlies.  No, not the real ones!  Put on your Bug-Eye glasses and join Flick as he hosts the show.  The audience members are now “honorary bugs” and get treated to meeting some of Flick’s friends.  During this 8-minute show, sit back in your seats and relax while you will have some close encounters with hornets, stinkbugs and even Grasshopper from Disney Pixar’s movie A Bug’s Life.  Be prepared for the special effects that include feel and smell.  They may be surprising, but loads of fun!





2.  Toy Story Mania – Head over to Disney’s Hollywood Studios and down to Pixar Place to find this gem. Grab your 3-D glasses, board your 4-person ride vehicle and let the games begin!  Toy Story characters will host different games that are fun for the entire family!  Think your ride and games are done after that first scene?  Nope! You will then enjoy several more games by going around a track to various scenes.  From throwing pies and rings to bursting balloons and throwing eggs, keep racking up those points!  Can you make it to the day’s leader board?

1.  Mickey’s Philharmagic – Our last stop takes us to Fantasyland in Magic Kingdom.  Take a seat and put on your Opera glasses and be prepared to be entertained!  Donald Duck is told not to touch Mickey Mouse’s Sorcerer’s hat, but we all know that little guy doesn’t listen!  So, he is taken on a whirlwind trip as he is transported into some of the most classic Disney movie scenes!  He visits Ariel, Peter Pan, Aladdin and Simba just to name a few!  As he is entertained by Lumiere, you can smell the pie.  While visiting a scene in Fantasia, you are sprinkled with water.  The scene in Neverland and Agrabah make you feel like you are soaring through the skies as you stare at one of the largest seamless screens in the world!  These are the things that set this attraction apart from the others.  Disney classics, new graphics and the special effects that this show brings, have me not only putting it at the top of this list, but the top of my favorites list in general!
So, next time you visit the Mouse’s house, be sure to take part in each of these attractions.  I assure you, you will not be disappointed!
Is there a 3-D attraction that you cannot miss each Disney vacation?  What is your absolute favorite?

Pros of the Disney Skyliner

Disney’s Skyliner, a gondola system connecting several resorts and two theme parks, opened a little over a year ago in September 2019. Before its opening, resorts on the Disney World Monorail, which connects three deluxe resorts and their related villas with two theme parks, were considered the most coveted accommodations … but has that changed now that the Skyliner is here? I recently stayed at Disney’s Riviera Resort, which features a Skyliner station with direct access to the back entrance of Epcot as well as the BoardWalk area and the Yacht & Beach Club. In the other direction, passing through the hub next door at Caribbean Beach Resort allows for access to the front entrance of Hollywood Studios in minutes. Other resorts with Skyliner stations include Art of Animation and Pop Century, which in my opinion raises the value of these Value Resorts. The ability to get to so many resort areas for shopping and dining is a bonus. The continuous cycle of Skyliner gondolas means the lin

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Ears the News: September 27, 2019 Edition

Welcome to the latest edition of Ears the News Brought to you by our friends at WDWMagic.com The 6 mile long Disney Skyliner opens at the end of the month in Walt Disney World, and we are now starting to hear confirmation of some of the operational details. As expected, lightning will be addressed by the Skyliner system closing when lightning is forecast. The system does feature lightning protection, but Disney will obviously be keeping guests out of the sky during bad weather. Bus service will be available during weather closure of the Skyliner. Photo courtesy of WDWMagic.com Disney Skyliner is able to carry 10 guests per cabin, and guests may also travel with strollers, wheelchairs and service animals. There are five stations in total covering the 3 lines - at Caribbean Beach, Pop Century/Art of Animation, Disney Riviera Resort, Disney's Hollywood Studios and Epcot International Gateway. Caribbean Beach is the main gateway and you will transfer there to each
