  |  @   |  

Ever since the opening of Walt Disney World in 1971, a Magic Kingdom-style park has debuted in a different locale around the world in each subsequent decade. Tokyo Disneyland: 1983. Disneyland Paris (then called EuroDisneyland): 1992. Hong Kong Disneyland: 2005. On June 16, one of Disney’s most ambitious theme parks finally sees its day. Shanghai Disneyland Park, part of the Shanghai Disney Resort, a project in the works for more than 15 years, is an epic Magic Kingdom with unique experiences, Chinese cultural influences, and technological innovations.

As we anticipate the opening of Shanghai Disneyland, let’s peek through the curtain at what Disney has in store for its future guests.

Disney In Depth: 10 Most Overlooked Walt Disney World Attractions
  |  @   |  

If you have the opportunity to visit Walt Disney World, you must know which rides and shows everyone queues up for at the start of the day. At Epcot, all race toward Soarin’ or Test Track. For Animal Kingdom, Expedition Everest, and Kilimanjaro Safaris bring the longest lines. But many attractions are often unfortunately overlooked, namely because many other spectacles distract guests’ attention.

The purpose behind this Disney In Depth is to honor the many shows, exhibits, films, and rides that may be forgotten in the mix of the most popular attractions at Walt Disney World. Here are my 10 Most Overlooked Walt Disney World Attractions.

Disney In Depth: Honoring Robin Williams’ Disney Legacy
  |  @   |  

“When you read, don’t just consider what the author thinks, consider what you think.”

So true are the words of John Keating, the character from the movie Dead Poets Society portrayed by Robin Williams in an Oscar-nominated performance. The actor’s death, tragic in that a man who gave the world so much joy could never appear to possess joy himself, continues to startle Hollywood. There are few performers we could call “genius,” but Williams was one of them, an irrefutably gifted comic-turned-actor who was as much a poetic dramatic actor as he was a comedic revelation.

Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith Goes To Disney World For Parade (Video)
  |  @   |  

Super Bowl XLVIII MVP Malcolm Smith’s got to utter the famous phrase on Sunday night “I’m going to Disney World” after his team, the Seattle Seahawks, won the big game 43-8 over the Denver Broncos. Each year, the Super Bowl MVP gives this excited response about going to Disney World (or sometimes to Disneyland, depending on where the game is held) when asked on the football field immediately after the win – “You’ve just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do next?”

On Monday, the Seahawks linebacker arrived in Orlando, FL, from the New York/New Jersey area where the game took place the night before, to take part in Disney World’s celebratory Super Bowl parade at the Magic Kingdom park.

Check out a video here below of part of the parade, as well as some words from Smith about his whirlwind experience.

Photo: ‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Maisie Williams Pulls Sword From The Stone At Disney World
  |  @   |  

Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on HBO’s Game Of Thrones, took a recent vacation to Disney World in Orlando, FL, where she was able to pull the famed sword from the stone at the Magic Kingdom theme park.

Check out the photo here below of the 16-year-old actress at Disney World at the end of August, sporting Minnie Mouse ears and happily lifting the sword.

The Sword in the Stone attraction, based on the 1963 animated Arthurian movie, is located in front of Cinderella’s Golden Carrousel in Fantasyland. Back in the 1990s, there was a “Sword in the Stone Ceremony,” where Merlin would select a child from the crowd to pull the sword out of the stone. Although there’s no longer a show, guests frequently take photos at the park attempting to draw the sword. While the sword is typically firmly in the stone, periodically, a guest is able to remove it.
