It's All in the Disney Details


We’ve previously taken a look at seemingly ordinary objects such as trash cans and carpets, and today we continue that journey into the ordinary by taking a look at towels: the animal variety, that is.  Towel animals are another example of how Disney takes something simple like a towel and gives it that extra Disney touch to make them something magical.

Classic Mickey silhouette
Upon arrival to your room at a Walt Disney World resort, you can expect to see the classic Mickey silhouette in towels on the bed.  It’s such a simple shape and yet it brings so much joy.  I love seeing that silhouette because it means that my Disney vacation has really begun!  I often leave the towels on the bed as long as possible because it just feels wrong to destroy Mickey, even if it is only made of towels!




Creative towel animals can also be functional!
Disney housekeeping - better known as Mousekeeping - keep the creations coming throughout your stay.  After a long day in the parks, it’s an exciting surprise to find the little towel animals in various places around your room.  There are some very creative Mousekeepers who go that extra mile to add a little more magic to your vacation.



If you enjoy the towel animals at the Walt Disney World resorts, you should see the towel animals onboard a Disney Cruise Line ship!  The DCL staff take towel animals to a whole new level.  They are truly spectacular!  From turtles, to elephants and monkeys, the DCL staff make some pretty intricate creatures!  Just see for yourself:





Towel animal class on the Disney Fantasy
On a recent cruise on the Disney Fantasy, my husband and I took an “Art of Towel Making” course.  We were given a few towels of varying sizes and a step-by-step paper on towel folding to accompany our lesson, led by a stateroom Host.  I gotta tell you, making those towel animals is not an easy task!  Even with detailed instructions and following step-by-step instructions, it takes a lot of practice to perfect those cute little towel animals.

The Disney cast members take something as simple as a towel and turn it into something magical.  I know that those towel animals bring a smile to my face and each day I look forward to seeing what new creation is waiting for me.  It’s that extra Disney difference that makes every Disney vacation so special.


Remember, it’s all in the Disney details!

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.


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 destination.

Although Disney Riviera Resort doesn…

Disney Villains After Hours Event

This summer, the Kingdom Konsultant Agents took on a full day of training followed by a late night Magic Kingdom adventure at the Disney Villains After Hours Event.  The night promised low crowds, special effects on attractions, specialty food items available for purchase, a unique stage show and PhotoPass opportunities, and Maleficent at night. In addition, there were complimentary soda, bottled water, popcorn and ice cream novelties with our event admission! We couldn't wait to see what we could accomplish! Pro tip: you won't be able to accomplish it all in one night, there is just too much to see and do!

Walking in to Main Street was a little hectic with the day guests leaving and the party guests arriving.  We almost missed the guide map but managed to double back to grab some so that we could all make a plan! You notice right away a different feel to the park with little hints of the villains all around.



The two main attractions with overlays were Pirates of the Caribbean…
