Pirates in the Caribbean fireworks, one of 4 must-see shows on the DCL Magic (videos by Seth Kubersky).
The Disney Cruise Line is famed for its live entertainment offerings, and the DCL Magic is no exception. Despite being the oldest ship in the fleet, the Magic has some of DCL’s freshest shows, which I was lucky enough to experience on my recent Transatlantic crossing. You can’t go wrong with any of the mainstage production in the Walt Disney Theater — I’m particularly partial to Disney Dreams, and am excited to see the new Tangled musical — but there are tons of other live shows around the boat that you shouldn’t overlook. If you are stuck on dry land dreaming of sailing the seven seas with Mickey, whet your whistle with these new videos of 4 must-see Disney Cruise Line shows from the DCL Magic.
Freezing the Night Away Deck Party
Ok, this first entry might be stretching the “must-see” moniker for most adults, but if your kids are still Elsa-crazed you aren’t going to want to skip this one. Freezing the Night Away with Anna, Elsa and Friends is a relatively recent addition to the DCL deck party rotation, which debuted earlier this year on the Disney Wonder, and was subsequently added to the Magic. It serves as the capstone to a full day of Frozen-themed activities, including a chocolate scavenger hunt, maypole dance, and special Norwegian-inspired dinner menu.

During last year’s reshuffling of Epcot’sWorld Showcase shows, long-time fan favorite musical group Mo’Rockin’ was moved out of the Morocco pavilion and replaced by a Berber band called B’net Al Houwariyate. Now, the revolving door of Epcot entertainment has rotated yet turned again: B’net has said goodbye (at least for the time being) and Ribab Fusion has made their debut at Epcot’s Morocco.

Great Scott, what a Best Week Ever it’s been! As all cinema lovers know, October 21, 2015, was the day that Doctor Emmett Brown and Marty McFly arrived in the futuristic Hill Valley in Back to the Future Part II. As of yesterday, we all officially live in the future! Even though hoverboards and Mr. Fusion machines aren’t yet commonplace, scores of sci-fi fans showed up — many in elaborate costumes — to celebrate Back to the Future Day at Universal Studios Florida.

If you’ve visited Downtown Disney at Walt Disney World any time in the last couple of years, you know what a royal pain in the tuchus traffic can be in that area. Now you can rejoice, because Downtown Disney is dead and Disney Springs is here, with a brand new way to arrive. The new Disney Springs I-4 exit ramp is now open, providing a much more stress-free way to drive into the shopping district’s recently completed parking garage.
Bid a final farewell to Mulch, Sweat, and Shears with videos of their last shows at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (photos/video by Seth Kubersky & Len Testa)
It was the mulchiest of times, it was the sweatiest of times. But now the time has come to shed a tear and bid farewell to Mulch, Sweat, and Shears. After just over 11 years of rocking guests faces off as Walt Disney World’s best (and only) landscaping-themed cover band, the popular group played their last shows ever at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Friday, October 10th. The band may have been given a “big record deal” (read: pink slip) but the Mulch memories can live on forever, thanks to our videos from their final day of performances.
First up, here is a recording of Mulch, Sweat, & Shears’ last 1:30 p.m. set on the Streets of America, as captured by Len Testa:
I love Halloween (really, I put my decorations up September 1st), but I can’t justify buying a brand new costume every year.
Therefore, I feel it’s my duty to provide wearable costume alternatives that are not only comfortable, but are characters people can easily identify.
So today, I give you the emotions from the Disney Pixar film, Inside Out.
In my opinion, this costume is all about the make up. You can get away with a chartruese-colored top (I found mine at Savers), the eye look, and a yellow ball to serve as a core memory. Don’t forget a contagious smile and you’ve got yourself a completed costume.
I’ve provided a video make up tutorial below but if you don’t have the time, here’s the look.
