Splash Mountain's annual refurbishment is much shorter than usual in 2016, with just 4 days of downtime in the New Year. The refurbishment begins on January 10 through to January 14 2016.

Peter Pan's Flight at the Magic Kingdom will be closing for a short refurbishment in early November 2015. The closure begins on November 2 and runs through to November 7 2015.

The bridge linking Aruba and Jamaica to Old Port Royale food court and shops is currently closed for refurbishment.

The work began on September 5, and will continue through to November 26 2015. If you are staying in Jamaica or Aruba, you will be able to use a shuttle from 6:30 AM to 12:30 AM daily, with pickups every 20 minutes from the parking lot area.
A boat will also be available from 9:00 AM to dusk, with service from the Barefoot Bay Bike Works to the Aruba beach.

Disney is about to begin a major new national marketing campaign for both Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort.

'Unforgettable Happens Here' is the main message, and will make extensive use of Social Media, highlighting moments that families and friends share together in the parks.
Look out for the first commercials airing this week on Disney's TV channels, including ABC and Disney Channel.

The new campaign will replace the 'Disney Side' message from the past few years.

Here are two videos from Disney Parks.

The new boat dock is located between the recently opened Jock Lindsey's Hangar Bar and Paradiso 37.
Service to Disney's Saratoga Springs Springs and Disney's Old Key West Resort is available from 10:30 AM to 11:30 PM. Water Taxi service to the West Side and Marketplace is available from 9:00 PM to 1:30 AM.
Transport to Port Orleans Resort continues to be available from the Marketplace Dock.

The technical problems affecting Summit Plummet and Slush Gusher at Disney's Blizzard Beach appear to be more complex than originally thought.

After a series of closures, both Summit Plummet and Slush Gusher are now to remain closed through to the end of the season on October 3 2015.  The park closes for its annual refurbishment from October 4 2015, and will continue to operate as normal until then.
The problems began on Friday, which closed the entire park, and although the park reopened on Saturday, Summit Plummet and Slush Gusher remained closed.

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

Royal Caribbean - Taste of Sabor Experience

I recently sailed on Royal Caribbean Cruise Line's Liberty of the Seas for my Honeymoon.  The trip itself was quite amazing, but we had a special dinner at Sabor that wasn't on any pre-planning options.  While at dinner at the Chef's Table earlier in our cruise, a nice gentleman from Sabor came by and told us about a similar experience they were trying out at that restaurant.  Of course we decided we had to give it a try! We got the menu to look over and our host for the night came to greet us and go through what to expect etc. This was a new thing they were trying, so we didn't really know much about it going in other than "if you liked the Chef Table, come try this!" He was wonderful, and we had a great time with him. We were at a big table off to the side as you went in (our whole Chef's Table party decided to go for this, so we were old friends at this point!) The table was semi-private, but still somewhat part of the normal dining area so we could pee

Topolino's Terrace Breakfast Review

Breakfast at Topolino's has been getting quite the hype since it opened, so I was thrilled when I snagged a reservation with my fellow Agent Maci on our trip to celebrate Magic Kingdom's 50th birthday. This restaurant is located on the 10th floor of Disney's Riviera Resort, the newest to open on Walt Disney World property. The d├ęcor is modern and bright, with floor to ceiling windows and a balcony to continue to take in the views right outside. Breakfast is a character dining experience, with Mickey and friends being dressed in their artsy best! Park attire is welcome, but you could just as easily get a little fancy and feel comfortable. We were told it would be about 10 minutes so we went to the bar where I ordered a Bellini and Maci got a Mimosa, light on the OJ! The excellent bartender barely had time to make our drinks before our table was ready. We were quickly greeted by our server Chris from Orlando and we're pretty sure we found the OG! For
