In Case You Missed It!

Have you been watching the new Disney Festival of Fantasy footage with as much fervor as I have been? If so, here is some other fun you may have missed seeing this week! Lots of great stuff! Let me know your favorite in the comments!

In Case You Missed It – Disney News and Rumors

This fantastic excerpt called “Reaching My Autistic Son Through Disney” is a must read. It’s all about how Disney movies gave an autistic boy his voice. There are no words…just read.

Disney has made Fortune’s List of the World’s Most Admired Companies! Check out to see where it ranks and why.

Are you excited about the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival? WESH shared the must try items found at the Outdoor Kitchens for this year’s Festival. (I also learned that according to executive chef, Jens Dahlmann, the Piggylicious bacon cupcake’s original name was going to be mancake….I think they made the right choice in changing that one.)

Disneyland being overrun by gangs? It’s not what you think. Unique social clubs are taking to the streets (like Main Street U.S.A.) And these clubs are more than welcoming. It’s an interesting look at a growing phenomenon.

Did you know that a helicopter flew over Disneyland late Wednesday night. Rumor has it, it may be related to a new addition to Soarin’ Over California. Intriguing. Guess we’ll have to wait to see what comes from this.

You guys have seen this, right? Dreamfinder is coming back! Ok…maybe not in the same form as once before, but thanks to Marvel and the new comic book series “Disney Kingdoms” we will get to see Dreamfinder in some form once again. Take a look! (Please oh please be popular enough to influence a refresh of the attraction with Dreamfinder back again…hey…a girl can dream, right? Also…I may have to start reading comic books…)

Have you got the entrepreneurial desire? I came across this interesting article called “5 Magical Tips Walt Disney Can Teach Entrepreneurs About Marketing.” It talks about how you can use aspects found in Disneyland to enhance your own business. There are some great tips that can really help.

We are one week out from Muppets Most Wanted. This week, Variety took a look at the resurgence of the lovable franchise and how they became a force in today’s society, yet again. (And thank God for Jason Segel’s role in that!)

If you grew up in the 90s, you remember when TV shows like Family Matters, Roseanne, Boy Meets World, and Full House filmed episodes at Walt Disney World. (And thanks to constant re-runs, I was recently able to catch all of these episodes again!) Recently, it seems that some ABC shows are potentially getting back to that tradition. In 2012, we saw Modern Family at Disneyland, and this year, on The Middle it appears they will be taking a trip to Walt Disney World. (I don’t watch this show, but I will be watching this episode for sure.)

Comcast doesn’t appear to be going anywhere. Hear why they are super excited for what’s to come, starting this summer at Universal Orlando. The company also feels as though they have a lot of room to grow. (Especially if rumors are to be believed that they are already rapidly planning their next expansion projects to follow on the heels of Diagon Alley.) This article is a fascinating look at their mindset.

Happy St. Patrick’s Weekend! With the festivities taking place all around, how cool would it be to make and wear these ears? Darn it! Why am I not more crafty?

 

In Case We Missed It

What did we miss? Send your idea attached to the complete series of Boy Meets World (seriously…how awesome was this show? Also…cannot wait for the new Girl Meets World that’s going to air on Disney Channel this summer.) and send both to blog@touringplans.com with the words “In Case You Missed It” in the subject line.
