Ears the News with Richard

The 'Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show' at Disney's Hollywood Studios is scheduled to be closed for a brief refurbishment in November. The closure begins on 11/18/2013 through to 11/21/2013.

A new snack kiosk offering nutritional information and gluten-free snacks is now open at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Called 'Gardens Kiosk,' you can find the new location just outside the Adventurers Outpost meet and greet on Discovery Island. The kiosk is unique in that it offers information about allergies and intolerances for restaurants throughout Disney's Animal Kingdom.  Guests can still talk to a chef at each individual restaurant, but the kiosk gives an opportunity to gain more information prior to arrival at a restaurant. Secondly, the kiosk also offers a range of pre-packaged gluten-free snacks. The following is available:

Actor Neil Patrick Harris is now confirmed to be joining the celebrity narrator line-up for the 2013 Candlelight Processional, part of Holidays Around the World at Epcot. 

The actor who is known for roles such as Barney in “How I Met Your Mother”, and Doogie Howser, MD is a huge Epcot fan himself, and a fan favorite narrator. He will be appearing on 12/2/2013 and 12/3/2013.

As the busy summer period comes to an end, things are moving rapidly in the parking lots at Downtown Disney as site preparation for the first of two Disney Springs parking garages nears.
Parking lots I and J now join lot H as being closed. All are now walled off, and construction trailers are in place on lot H. Lot K will be closing soon to be part of the parking garage space. To help orientate you, lot H is directly across from Planet Hollywood, and lots I,J,K run from the AMC Dine In Theater all the way to Splitsville. A lot of parking capacity has been lost with these closures, and Disney has put in place alternative arrangements using off-site parking.

5 Ways To Get Psyched For Your Disney Trip!

Hey-Howdy-Hey, Disney Guys and Gals!      Is anyone familiar with Barney Stinson's "Get Psyched" Mix? Anyone? How I Met your Mother Fans? Ok, great! So you totally get where I'm going with this! If you have no idea what I am talking about, you can watch a clip  HERE!  Basically, the theory is that no matter what's going on in your life, you can get yourself psyched up and ready for something awesome to happen, all by listening to the right piece of music. Playing off of that theory, I feel that one of the very best things about a Disney trip is actually  preparing  for it, or getting psyched! You can have a whole bunch of crappy stuff happening in your life at the time, but if you have a Disney trip on the horizon... even if it's 564 days away, you have something to look forward to and enjoy preparing yourself for. In fact, many Disney fans, (myself included), pretty much get from one day to the next by preparing for upcoming trips. You may even book a ne

Local Vendors We Recommend in Orlando
