Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom

16 Apr

This isn’t exactly breaking news as I’ve been reading about it on other blogs for a while during testing, but Magic Kingdom has added a new interactive game. It is similar to the game found at EPCOT’s Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure (soon to be re-themed as Agent P from Phineas and Ferb. It is called Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom and it has some key differences to the Kim Possible version. I’m not going to try to explain the game in depth or give away any spoilers, I’m just going to give some basics and my immediate reaction having played it a bit.

First thing you do if you want to play is go to one of the Sorcerers Recruitment Center. The main one is in the Firehouse on Main Street. Another is in Fantasyland (but I haven’t been there yet). You will see a short video giving you an overview of the story, receive your first set of cards and then get a quick instruction on how to play.

The Starter Kit.

Disney Pin Boards

11 May

Remember all those Disney Pins I showed you here? As you can see I have A LOT of pins. Definitely way too many to wear on a lanyard and walk around Disney for a day. Luckily for me I have not only a very beautiful girlfriend, but also a very smart and creative girlfriend.

As a gift for me she made me this:

It is just a piece of foam board with a ribbon stitched in around the edge. Obviously it is the shape of a hidden Mickey! JC made this for me to have a place to keep and display my favorite Disney Pins!

Disney Pin Trading

27 Feb

I teased it in my post yesterday about how I became addicted to Disney Pin Trading. Now I’m going to out my full addiction with pictures (NOTE: I don’t have a professional camera nor a studio, so not all of these pictures are great)!

My Collection

For those of you who don’t know, Disney sells collectible pins. Not very exciting I know, especially since they cost from $7.99 to $12.99 a piece. Here is wear it gets addicting. Disney Cast Members (what they call employees) in most departments are encouraged (and in some departments required) to wear pin lanyards while working and you can walk up to a cast member and trade with them. You can give them any pin you have and take any one they have. The cast members are not allowed to say no to any trade (as long as it is one pin for one pin).

WDW Space Mountain Redo or ReDUD!

10 Dec

Some of you may know that WDW  shut down its version of Space Mountain for a refurbishment in 2009.

It was closed!

This led to rampant rumors that WDW would FINALLY  get an upgrade to the track and ride so that it was similar to the new Space Mountain in California. Again, Floridian Disney fans got screwed again…

Les Chefs de France With a Special Guest!

22 Mar

On Thursday mom and I spent the day at EPCOT’s International Flower & Garden Festival and we had lunch in France! We ate at the amazing Les Chefs de France. I’m going to start out by saying that the food was amazing. Disney really does food right in these type restaurants. If you stick to the quick service kiosks and tray service you may think Disney food sucks, but if you take the time (and a couple extra dollars) to sit down and eat you’ll be blown away. Quick warning though, these places are pretty much reservation only (especially the popular ones). You can normally get reservations for the day towards the front of the park at Guest Services (under Spaceship Earth to the left at EPCOT and in City Hall at Magic Kingdom).

I had read about it in advance, so we HAD to check out Les Chefs de France’s new Special Guest, REMY!

Life sized and REALLY cute!

Bonsai from 08!

Bonsai from 08!

Today my mom and I are returning to the EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival! This reminded me of one of my early posts to this blog! Back on May 10, 2008 I wrote about last year’s festival, check out my post here and check out the slide show of photos here! This reminds me because that post was only my 8th post EVER! I think I’ve come a long way! This post will be my 309th!

Hopefully by this weekend I will have a fresh 2009 post with new pictures from our day!
