In Case You Missed It!

Did you have a great holiday week? Here’s what you missed while enjoying precious family and friend time.

In Case You Missed It – Disney News and Rumors

With the holiday season just winding up at Walt Disney World, did you ever wonder about where they store all the festive decor? Here’s a look at the huge Holiday Services warehouse where Disney keeps everything organized and ready for each year. (If only I could be that organized!)

As 2013 comes to an end, Geeks of Doom honors those who passed this year who have made impacts in the Disney Company, in at least some capacity. Some you automatically think of, like Annette Funicello, but others don’t automatically come to mind, like Paul Walker.

Have you ever wondered what some of Orlando’s theme parks look like from above? Thanks to this article, we get a glimpse of Seuss Landing and Wizarding World of Harry Potter (and more) at Universal Studios Orlando and Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach at Walt Disney World. It’s such a cool view that many will never get the chance to see without the article (or rogue traffic helicopter pal).

While many don’t think about watching movies while sailing the seven seas, did you know that according to USA Today, Disney is one of the best cruise ships for catching a flick while you’re on your cruise? Find out why!

Do you have a favorite float in any of the Magic Kingdom parades? Over on Babble, they discussed some of their favorite parade moments. (Mine would have to be the Pirate ship that’s usually used in the “Boo To You” parade during Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, but I’m looking forward to what the new “Festival of Fantasy” parade will bring. The concept art for those floats look AWESOME!)

Looking forward to 2014 trips? If you’re headed to Orlando, the Orlando Sentinel has an idea of what you can look forward to in the new year, like The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley and Cabana Bay Beach Resort at Universal Studios and Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Walt Disney World.

 

In Case We Missed It

What did we miss this week? (It was a busy one…we’re sure we missed something.) Write your idea on a Disney Mickey Mouse One Piece PJ Set (what? it’s cold outside) and send it to blog@touringplans.com with the words “In Case You Missed It” in the subject line.

  • Thanks for this informative and well-researched series! It’s fun to see what others are saying about Disney and Universal.
    It’s been years since I took the 3-park behind-the-scenes tour, but the Christmas Warehouse was a part of that fascinating adventure my last time on that tour. And it was incredible. The folks there were so friendly.

  • Does anyone have any info on the DCA Food and Wine tour for 2014? Will it be held, when and the cost of admission? Any info you can give me is greatly appreciated!!!
