Disney Releases Star Wars Weekend Dates 2013

starwarsPersonally, I’m not a Star Wars fan, but I do live with few die hard fans. Oh goodness, they watch the Star Wars movies over and over!  I know there has to be a lot of fans out there in the Disney galaxy as well.  So, grab a calendar and write down these dates. This year’s force-filled fun will take place every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from May 17 – June 9, 2013 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Disney Rumors Hollywood Studios Recap

Disney Rumors Lucas FilmsI admit that I truly am a Disney rumors junkie.  I love to read about all the Disney rumors that are in the news.  Disney rumors are never to be trusted.  They are fun to talk about, though.  Disney Hollywood Studios is in the forefront of the Disney rumor mill.  Disney purchased Lucas Films this week.  There are lots of rumors that this means a Star Wars Land will be built.  This new land would be built in Disney Hollywood Studios.  It would replace the Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show and the Backlot Stage Tour.  This new rumor would cancel out several other Disney rumors about  a Cars Land being built. Continue reading Disney Rumors Hollywood Studios Recap

Walt Disney World Resort – A Disney Field Trip

When the Magic Kingdom opened in 1971, Walt Disney World became the culmination of its namesake’s dream – a place where families could play together, learn together and embrace the future. Back then, the “World” was only a small fraction of what we enjoy today. Now, the Magic Kingdom Park, the Contemporary and Polynesian resort hotels have been joined by Epcot, Hollywood Studios, the Animal Kingdom park and enough resorts to suit every taste and budget. Walt Disney World Resort is a veritable World unto itself covering some 43-square miles. And, around every corner, there is a learning opportunity!

Star Tours ROCKS my world Disney style!

Recently, we visited Disney’s Hollywood Studios and rode the newly refurbished attraction, Star Tours.  Using the Fastpass system made it almost a walk-on attraction for us — except for that we wanted to stop and often to ooh and ahh over the new additions to the queue.  Disney imagineers are so creative!  The attraction, itself, is 3-D now (a big WOW all on its own), and new footage from more recent movies is included as well.

Long story short, the Star Tours Walt Disney World attraction is the proof in the pudding that the Disney brand continues to reach further and higher in the world of imagination and fun.  I know in the title I said Star Tours rocks my world, but perhaps it would be more accurate to claim Disney ROCKS my world; >)

I am already dreaming about my next adventure to different galaxies on Star Tours.
