Today I came across some not-so-Disneytastic news; both Disneyland and Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios are debating whether they should have the Annual Passholders be blocked out for two months due to the opening of Star Wars Land. The crowds are going to get insane, which means more of the moolah for Disney. As many of us AP Disney-Lovers know, we don’t have to pay for a new ticket when going to the Disney parks DUE to the Annual Passes. So, Disney doesn’t make that extra hundred to two-hundred bucks when entering the parks. What does that mean for the Annual Passholders? You guessed it! Annual Passholders would have to buy a regular Disney Ticket in order to enter Star Wars Land for those first two months. Lame, in my opinion.
If you want to imagine how the world will look in just a few years, once our cell phones become the keepers of both our money and identity, skip Silicon Valley and book a ticket to Orlando. Go to Disney World. Then, reserve a meal at a restaurant called Be Our Guest, using the Disney World app to order your food in advance.
Every epic-Disney fanatic knows that Disneyland food is magic. There’s no other way to put it other than it is Magical. It’s like they put some kind of “secret ingredient” (or something else) to make it 10 times better than every other places’ food in almost the whole world. Grandma’s home-made pie is even put to shame with the splendid dining at Disneyland. However, Walt Disney World is a whole new realm when it comes to eating. Disclaimer: this is honest opinion and feedback from anonymous Disney Fans. This is not full-fact, just honest opinions from Disney-Lovers, such as yourselves.
As Walt Disney Co. readies to open its first Disneyland resort in mainland China by mid-year, its decade-old theme park in Hong Kong has tumbled back into a loss, portending challenges ahead amid the country’s slowing economic growth.
There’s been talk of a New “Millenium Falcon Ride” once Star Wars Land opens. It’s said to be a flight simulator ride (like Star Tours) that takes you on a secret mission, customized of course. There haven’t been any dates confirming when it will be open (as we can see Star Wars Land is just a big pile of dirt at the moment), but they have confirmed that the ride will exist. Not only is there talk of the Millennium Falcon ride, but there’s a First Order dark ride? No idea what is to come of that, but sounds some-what interesting, if you ask me.
Memorial Day weekend has come and gone and that means that seasonally, if not scientifically, summer has officially begun. It also means that we have officially passed the 60-day mark for our upcoming trip to Walt Disney World this summer.
One of my fondest memories of Disneyland is during the summer of 2009. Fantasmic! had been closed for a few months and the new Maleficent dragon was supposed to show up any day. My dad and I decided that we would be there the first time the dragon appeared. With this in mind, we had to go to Disneyland practically every night — what a chore, I know. After exhausting my entertainment options, I decided to start bringing a book and found that Disneyland was one of the most interesting places to read.
Every true Disney fan knows the worst times to be in the Disney parks are Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years. Yes, there are other times when the parks get over-crowded (for example, EVERY FREAKING DAY IN THE SUMMER) but it’s not as crazy and mind-numbing as the Holidays. And for those Disney fans that go ONLY for the Holidays, I would like to add that we non-Holiday crazed fans salute you and find you to be very brave.
Disney World and Disneyland have a variety of the same rides. From ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, to ‘it’s a small world’, the family favorites can be found in both places. However, Disney World has the 2 best attractions when comparing the two parks.
The first attraction is The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in Disney’s Magic Kingdom. This thrilling roller coaster takes you into the infamous mine where the Seven Dwarfs work all day, digging for diamonds and other precious gems. Not only do you get to experience the magical mine where “a million diamonds shine”, but the mine train you’re sitting in rocks back and forth. It’s a very exciting ride for children and adults, and if you’re lucky, you can get a Fast Pass for this amazing attraction. Just try to get this Fast Pass a month before your trip, or you’ll be stuck waiting in line for 80 minutes (and that’s not even the most you could be waiting) or refreshing you Disney ‘My Experience’ App every second to get lucky to snag one.
