Sure, the rides are fun, but character interactions make those Disney World trips just a little more magical! Now, during the day, you can meet the usual characters, like Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Chip ‘n’ Dale, and more, but if you happen to attend an After Hours event in Disney World, you might run into some RARE characters you wouldn’t see otherwise. Well, we just went to an After Hours event in Hollywood Studios and met a TON of rare characters!
Can you really ever have too many Disney cups and mugs? Okay, that was a trick question, because the answer is OBVIOUSLY, “No.”
The one thing about cups and mugs is that they’re useful, so there’s always a good excuse to buy more. Some cups are more popular than others; we have seen people wait for a LONG time for Trader Sam’s tiki mugs (okay, it’s us — we LOVE THEM). We’ve also seen Starbucks cups sell out FAST in Disney World. Well, speaking of that…we’ve got a whole NEW collection of mugs, as well as a new Starbucks cup, to show you.
Can you imagine a world where Mickey Mouse isn’t a Disney character? We may or may not see this happen.
In all seriousness, Mickey has been the face of the Walt Disney Company for well over 90 years, since 1928, but come January 1st, 2024, Disney will be facing something that they’ve never faced before — Mickey Mouse will be entering the public domain. Before we go off into the deep end, let’s be clear, not all versions of Mickey will be going to the public domain. So, let’s break it all down.
It’s almost time to start thinking about all the different ways you’ll be counting down the holidays!
Luckily, we’ve taken the guesswork out for you with a few simple clicks! [Read more…]
Disney and Mickey Mouse. There’s not a more iconic duo than that… well PB&J might be a close second.
In all seriousness, Mickey has been the face of the Walt Disney Company for well over 90 years, but recently, there have been rumors swirling about Disney “retiring” Mickey in 2024. So let’s dive into these rumors, debunk the misinformation, and shed light on the real story. Let’s go!
There is just SO much that happens during the holidays in Disney World.
There are all the holiday decorations to look at. There are TWO holiday after-hours parties. There are SO MANY new holiday snacks. There’s even a Christmas Tree Stroll in Disney Springs. But we’ll admit that we get really excited when we get to meet characters in their holiday outfits, and we just go to see Mickey and Minnie in some snazzy outfits!
So when Disney says it’s Halloween, then IT IS HALLOWEEN! We’ve already started to see loads of new Halloween merchandise drop, but wait until you see the new Halloween Loungefly bags we just came across (tip: just go grab your wallet now).
Get ready folks, THE Disney Halloween souvenir of the year is dropping online tomorrow.
In 2022, Disney released a giant light-up Mickey Jack-o-lantern that sold out almost immediately. In 2023, we saw it released again in Walt Disney World, but now we know just when it’ll be available to purchase online (and you’ll want to pay close attention because that release date has actually CHANGED).
Disney World sure knows how to have a good time.
Between holiday parties, birthdays, festivals, and more — there’s almost always some sort of exciting celebration happening in the parks. Right now, we’re in the midst of The Walt Disney Company’s 100th Anniversary and we’ve already seen quite a few new treats, merch, and entertainment — but it looks like more is on the way to Disney World!
Waiting in long lines at Disney World can be tough — but we waited in one on the Fourth of July that was TOTALLY worth it.
Disney has been celebrating the Fourth of July with all kinds of special things — fireworks at Magic Kingdom, fireworks at EPCOT, special snacks, and even a flyover. But there’s one special experience you’ll want to wait for even if the line is long.
