In Case You Missed ItDo you have the feeling of autumn yet? (I mean it is officially fall as of today.) I won’t get that cool feeling for at least another couple of months here, but I am enjoying the concept of experiencing fall right now.

What’s your favorite part of fall?

This week, see what new treats Disneyland has for Guests, learn what Disney partnership will be continuing and so much more! Let’s get to the fun!

In Case You Missed ItOk Florida, please stay safe from Hurricane Irma!

In Case You Missed ItFirst, I want to say that our thoughts are with those in the path of Hurricane Harvey. If you are looking to help, here’s a way.

This week, we look at what Disney should be doing with The Muppets, look at a piece of land that’s now back on the table, and more.
