We’ve already started getting into the holiday spirit with new merchandise and eats, but now the Magic Kingdom Character Cavalcades have gotten a holly jolly makeover! Trust us when you say you will WANT to see these!
Here at DFB, we LOVE the changing of the seasons. For instance, with fall, we get TONS of new Halloween and fall treats all around Walt Disney World!
And if you wanna rep fall, then there’s a new LIMITED EDITION pin for you on shopDisney!
What are they exactly? Well, they’re the aliens from Toy Story dressed in various costumes inspired by Disney characters. Yes, we were confused at first too. That is until we saw an alien dressed as Merida, complete with luscious red locks. Now, we’re totally hooked on ALL the Alien Remix plushes and accessories. Lucky for us, there’s more where that came from!
We have been getting so many creative remixes of the Aliens from Toy Story lately and we’re so happy that they keep coming! We are already a big fan of the different styles we are seeing such as this cute Alien that would fit right in with The Incredibles.
These little Aliens add the perfect dose of humor to the Toy Story movies so seeing them get their own unique merchandise line has been really exciting! The good news for you is that there are more available right now!
Before Disney World reopened, they told us parades and character greetings weren’t going to happen right away and would return at a later date. But fret NOT! We gotta say — things are interesting at Magic Kingdom with these new Character Cavalcades they’ve replaced their normal entertainment offerings with instead!
We’ve probably seen just as many Disney characters today with these new experiences than we would on an ordinary day at Magic Kingdom — we might have even seen more! We also saw something else pretty interesting!
Even though the holidays are still a ways off, this is the time of year that Disney likes to releases its new Sketchbook Christmas Ornaments!
And today we spotted a bunch of new designs including a few returning favorites! Let’s take a look at which Disney characters we’ll be trimming our Christmas trees with this year!
We’ve really been in the collecting spirit this year from the Minnie Mouse: The Main Attraction Collection!
shopDisney has announced another collection that will debut this weekend! It will feature some of our favorite Disney princesses and the castles in which they live!
Guests staying at the All Star Resorts — Sports, Movies, and Music — should definitely make a point to peruse the bakery cases in the Resort food courts. Themed character cupcakes of late have included the Cheshire Cat Cupcake at All Star Music’s Intermission Food Court. And now we’re back at the very same spot to try this month’s Merida Cupcake!
A note before we dig in… you’ll notice that the sign underneath the Merida Cupcakes in the bakery case reads “$5.49” for the price, but I was actually charged $5.99, so there seems to be an error on the sign (unless I was mischarged). [Read more…]
One of the most exciting things about visiting Walt Disney World Resort is that there is always something new to experience — even if you’ve been hundreds of times. Here we’ve gathered 36 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do at Walt Disney World — so let’s all go try something new!
1. Experience the Magic Kingdom Flag Retreat
This moving Magic Kingdom experience requires no Fastpass+ — just a desire to participate in a formal flag lowering ceremony held at the Magic Kingdom flagpole in front of the Walt Disney Railroad Station. The ceremony includes fanfare by trumpets, the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance, and the singing of God Bless America and the Star Spangled Banner accompanied by the philharmonic.
After the lowering and folding of the flag, a guest veteran is handed the flag and a short procession up Main Street, U.S.A., is accompanied by a medley of U.S. military songs. This event takes place daily, so check with Guest Services or the Times Guide to find out when to watch!
