Food and Drink in New Fantasyland

Whenever I visit Walt Disney World, I treat myself to at least a snack. Now at New Fantasyland there are more options of food and drink to choose. During the Blogger and Social Media event, we had the opportunity to taste some tantalizing treats in the Enchanted Forest area. These are some that I have personally tried along with the location they are served: Gaston’s Tavern Specialty Beverage - LeFou’s Brew is made with frozen apple juice drink with toasted marshmallows. You can get it in a souvenir mug or purchase just the drink. Although I haven't had the signature drink at … [Read more...]

Disney Knows Details Matter #NewFantasyland

Whenever Disney creates something new they know how much details matter. During my press trip to the New Fantasyland in Walt Disney World, the Imagineers who took us on our tour gave us an inside look into their creation process. It was fascinating. As I visited Storybook Circus on my own, I saw some of these details. When I looked down at the ground, there were elephant and other circus animal footprints.  Peanuts are also embedded in the walking area. The smell of cotton candy and caramel corn filled the air.

Part of History at the New Fantasyland #NewFantasyland

When I saw the video on the Disney Parks Blog, I knew it wasn’t a dream. I was actually a part of history at the New Fantasyland in the Magic Kingdom.

Meeting the Original Mouseketeers #DisneySMMoms

It had to be a dream. First seeing, listening to two of the original Mouseketeers speak about the show and Walt Disney, and hearing Cubby play the drums just a few feet in front of me on the stage during the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. Then Leanne Jakubowski - @leannej - asked me if I'd like to privately meet them - Cubby O'Brien and Sherry Alberoni. Excitedly, I replied, "Yes" to Leanne without thinking about it for a second. I just needed to wipe away the remaining tears. Off we went to their "dressing room" - a suite in the Disney Yacht Club Convention Center. I still couldn't … [Read more...]
