sorry, no new posts for a few days. Sometimes you gotta work on stuff that actually gets the bills paid.

Friday, September 19, 2008


If your planning to visit WDW, take my advice and come in september. There has been no crowds for 3 weeks now and you can walk almost right on any ride you want. One day at MK the posted time for Space Mountain was ten minutes at 11am and again aat 1:30 pm.
My recent visit to EPCOT had me walk right on Soarin and Finding Nemo. The parks are sooo much more fun when they aren't so busy.
Here's a few pics I took.

Disney Parks announce Free Admission for Everyone

No it's not April Fools Day and it's absolutely true. Disney has announced that anyone and everyone can get into either Disneyland or Walt Disney World for free!!!! What's the catch? You have to go on your birthday. But wait, there's more!
If you allready have admission, such as a seasonal or annual pass, you can choose another option. The most exciting alternative is you can get merchandise equal to the cost of a 1 day ticket! Currently, that's $75 at WDW!
Click this "What Will You Celebrate?" link for the Disney site with all the details.

Greetings from the future

Visited EPCOT today. This is an example of a digital postcard you can send at the end of the Spaceship Earth ride. That's me on the right (you can see the gum in my mouth) and mom on the left.

Sneak Peek - Donald Duck and friends

Another new Winnie the Pooh Globe

This one is also from the Disney UK site.
Here is the description: On this Winnie the Pooh Baby Midiglobe, four cuddly friends are out having fun together in Hundred Acre Wood. Piglet's on his tree swing, and with a gentle shake of the Winnie the Pooh Baby Midiglobe, glitter swirls all around him. Meanwhile, Tigger has bounded up a branch, Pooh just can't hide that big cheerful smile... and as for Eeyore, well, he's still not mislaid his tail! H15xW10cm approx. Winnie the Pooh Baby Midiglobe is exclusive to Disney Store.

Ummm. The description doesnt match the globe. Which one will buyers get?
They also now have the wrong picture on one of the globes I showed yesterday, even though it was the correct picture yesterday.

Halloween at Walgreens

Walgreens now has this years Disney Halloween globes in the stores. I especially like the Mickey as a pirate one. I was a little disappointed that they used the same 4 characters yet again as I would prefer a little variety but perhaps those are the only licenses that the manufacturer has.
At least the Pooh globe got a bonus character - Piglet is on the base.

If anyone cant find these in their local stores, I'd be happy to pick up a few more and send them to you. I have no idea if all Walgreens carry these or if they are a local/florida thing. $25 for a complete set and that price includes shipping in the USA. Just leave a comment with your email and I'll email you back. Your comment/email will not be posted, only I will see it.

For those interested, Walgreens also had some other interesting Disney Halloween items. They had marshmallow pooh pops which are molded marshmallow figures on a stick and also a disney pumpkin carving kit. Also in the Halloween aisle they had small candy dispensers with a plastic Disney toy on top for only a dollar.
Again, I don't know if these are local items or nationwide. Heck, I don't even know if Walgreens is nationwide.

Mary Poppins Auction Concluded

The Mary Poppins snowglobe auction has concluded and it missed the record by one bid. Ending total including shipping was $1525.

Humphrey Hop

One of my favorite Disney cartoons has always been "In the Bag" from 1956. It's the one where the park ranger tricks Humphrey and the other bears into cleaning up the park by making it a game and singing "First you pick it up, put it in the bag, bump bump"
Anyway, I came across this activity page in an old Donald Duck comic and thought it would be fun to post here.

new Halloween statues at WDW

At least, I think they are new. I haven't seen them before. I took these pics about 6:30 am without a flash so they are very dark. The lighting on the Pluto statue wasnt working. I wanted to get daylight pictures too but haven't had the chance yet. These are placed around the Castle courtyard hub. I guess they didn't do one of Mickey because he is in the Partners statue in the center of the hub.

Little Mermaid snowdome cup

As seen on ebay - looks like there is a 2nd version of the Little Mermaid cup. I've seen snowdome cups at Wallgreens, the theme parks and the Disney Stores so hard to say where this one comes from. The first version has gren plastic. Cant tell from the picture I have if the figure of Ariel is the same pose or not.

Wall-E Pressed Pennies - WDW version

WDW debuted 2 new series of pressed pennies this past friday. Both series consist of 7 coins. one is Wall-E and the other the Disney Princes (not a mispelling). Only 2 of the Wall-E coins have debuted so far and 1 of the Princes (John Smith is a Prince? Since when?) Pics can be found at this excellent webpage The Wall-E designs are different then the ones that debuted at Disneyland not long ago.

Tower of Terror Snowglobe

Here's a mini Tower of Terror snowglobe. The tv set base has a lenticular screen that changes from s Twilight Zone Tower of Terror logo to static to an image of Mickey Goofy and Donald scared screamless. The picture I took shows it half way between static and the characters. I saw a couple of these sell on ebay last year for around $42.
I put this one on ebay this weekend for $25 and free shipping in the USA and nobody wanted it.
If anyone here would like to purchase it for that price, please leave a comment with your email address included so I can contact you. Your comments and email address will not be posted to the blog, I will be the only one recieving it.
Condition is brand new.
