Tidbits of Disney News just for you
Welcome back to Mouse Morsels!! Happy Belated St. Paddy’s Day…hope you had a fun time celebrating! Speaking of celebrations…EVERYDAY is a celebration at Disney World…wouldn’t you agree? There is ALWAYS something new and exciting going on there!!
On March 12th, Epcot debuted their new Illuminations Sparkling Dessert Party, available Wednesday, Friday and Saturdays from 7:45 – 9:20! How much fun will that be…watching the beautiful fireworks show, Illuminations: Reflections from Earth, from a special viewing area in World Showcase Plaza…while sipping on sparkling wines and desserts from around the world??? Tickets are $49 for adults and $29 for children and reservations for this fun event must be made at 407-WDW-DINE.
Due to the overwhelming popularity of the Meet & Greet with Anna & Elsa from “Frozen”, which was causing a bit of a traffic jam in the World Showcase…these two wonderful new Disney characters will be moving from the Norway Pavilion in Epcot to the Princess Fairytale Hall in Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom on April 20th. There, you will be able to get advance reservations with the new FastPass + so you won’t have to wait in line for hours…you can go on and enjoy all of the other wonderful adventures awaiting you at Disney World…then go back later to meet your two favorite girls. They will be available each day until the early evening hours. I can’t wait to meet Anna and Elsa myself!!! ♫ Do you want to build a snowman? ♫
Over at Downtown Disney West Side…the 4 food trucks that moved in last year are apparently getting their own permanent place…Food Truck Park!! Preparing for a late summer opening…the food trucks will be situated between Bongo’s and Starbucks West Side for your quick service dining pleasure! Each truck is themed after a different Disney park and offers favorite food selections from those parks. I’m looking forward to trying them out in October! Yummy!!
If you are tired of cold, dreary weather and ready for warm and sunny days…the 2014 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival, going on now until May 18th is the place to be!! The festival…with its gorgeous plants and flowers, more than 100 topiaries and gardens, along with expert seminars sharing tips you can try at home…will help you “spring” into the season! With concerts galore, Outdoor Kitchens, television personalities, food and drinks from around the world, this festival is a favorite with Disney World fans. If you’ve never been, you will definitely want to put this on your bucket list!
Well, that’s it for now, Mouse fans….if you aren’t already AT Disney World….I hope you are planning your trip and will be there soon! Until next time…have a Magical weekend and sweet Disney dreams!
As Julie says: “I am addicted to all things Disney! I grew up in Vernon, TX and now reside in Waller, TX (outside of Houston) on a small ranch with my hubby and all of our animals who we affectionately call “The Zoo Crew”! We have been married almost a year now (together for 7) and have 5 children and 9 grandchildren between the 2 of us. We knew we were meant for each other when we discovered we were both Disney fanatics! I went to Disneyland for the first time when I was 6 and fell in love with the magic of Disney. Now, my husband and I go to Disney World every 2 years either with friends or with whichever kid and grandkid are available to go at the time. We spend a lot of time planning our trips to ensure that everyone has the most memorable time while there, so that is what I will be writing about and hopefully give you some ideas to try for YOUR next Disney vacation. I am very excited to be a part of The Affordable Mouse team!”
