Congrats to Disney Cruise Line! They won multiple awards from Cruise Critic’s Cruiser’s Choice Awards for 2015, including the big one…Best Overall…an award they’ve won for 3 years in a row! Check out all the honors they received.
Disney has filled the role left vacant by Tom Staggs move to Chief Operating Officer. This week, Disney announced their new pick for Chairman of Parks and Resorts, Bob Chapek. It will certainly be interesting to see what this means for the parks…one thing I noticed off the bat is that he’s awful light on parks experience. What do you think about this move?
Disney tickets prices increased again this week…but let’s go back in time…back to 1996…when it cost a family of four $126 total to visit Disneyland. It’s interesting to see the same concerns we voice now are still being voiced, almost 20 years later. (I wish we were still paying $34 a ticket!)
Ever wonder where the magic happens at Walt Disney World? A lot of it actually occurs at Central Shops! Take a look at this section of the resort that not many people get to experience! These really are the “Can Do” people of Disney!

Duck Tales…whoo ooo! Are you ready to go back to Duckburg? You’ll be able to starting in 2017!
Did you catch the Frozen Fever trailer? What are your thoughts about the short which will air before Cinderella?
It’s an interesting idea…should Disney continue to re-release their films in theaters? OR do they have enough mojo going with new film releases now that they don’t need to re-release classic animated movies in theaters and DVD sales are just fine? What do you think?
Disney’s prices increase…so do Universal’s. See what you can expect to pay the next time you want to visit Harry Potter, The Simpsons, Spider-man, the minions, and more down in Orlando.
It’s official! It was also the worst kept rumor ever. King Kong is coming back to the Universal Orlando Resort! Are you excited to see the infamous ape once again?
Speaking of seeing old banana breath…do you remember the first version of King Kong? Take a look at the video of the former attraction, as well as some others that are sorely missed by fans from Universal.
