Pandora – The World of Avatar

Pandora – The World of Avatar

Kaltxi, and welcome to Pandora – The World of Avatar! You are now entering a hyper detailed alien landscape, designed to wow you at every turn. The film Avatar serves as the inspiration for this place, but the true aim of the Imagineers is to celebrate the magic of nature. They do so by bombarding your senses with the sights, sounds, and smells of Pandora. As with everything Disney does, there is a rich back story that accompanies this place. Today we will discuss that story, and see how it comes to life in the landscape, the rides, and the food of Pandora – The World of Avatar.

Disney Junior – Live on Stage!

Disney Junior – Live on Stage!

Come inside, its fun inside! This phrase has been made famous by the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse theme song, but it is also the perfect way to describe Disney Junior – Live on Stage! This upbeat show invites kids to dance and sing as they help Mickey & the gang prepare a surprise birthday party for Minnie. The clubhouse features favorites like Toodles and the Mouseketools, and also incorporates characters from Sophia the First, Doc McStuffins, and Jake and the Neverland Pirates. All the characters are puppets, who interact with a very energetic live host named Casey. Together the crew tells a three part story that teaches kids the value of teamwork and friendship. Today, we will look at the creation of the show, how it has evolved over the years, and what you can expect when you visit today.

Voyage of The Little Mermaid

Voyage of The Little Mermaid

Voyage of the Little Mermaid is a classic Disney show that makes the audience part of Ariel’s world through puppets, live performers, special effects, and clips from the film. The movie’s most popular musical numbers are put on display in some creative ways, and the small theater and special effects make for an immersive experience. The end result is a show that has entertained audiences for 25 years. The lifespan of this show has gone more than 20 years beyond its creators’ intentions. Today, we are going to tell you what the show was originally designed to be, how it has survived this long, and whether or not it is still a good addition to your next Disney vacation.

For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration

For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration

For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration is an interesting mix of live performers telling jokes and a karaoke style sing along to clips from the movie Frozen. Before we let the Arendelle historians take it away, let’s dive into the history of this show and see how it all came together.

Royal Sommerhus

Royal Sommerhus

This week we are staying in the Norway Pavilion at Epcot, and discovering an experience unlike any we have talked about on the podcast to date. While I love me a good Disney ride or show, there is another magical way to experience the parks. I’m talking about Character Meet’n’Greets! This is your chance to come face to face and interact with some of your favorite Disney characters. Trust me, these encounters can be some of the most memorable moments from a trip to Walt Disney World.

The Magic Kingdom is usually the first park that comes to mind when thinking about Disney characters. While there are a lot of incredible character experiences at this park, it is not the only one with a wide range of characters. Epcot may surprise you when it comes to its international mix of characters available. Of course, none are more famous than the sisters from Arendelle. Today we are going to tell you where to find Anna & Elsa!

A Pirate’s Adventure – Treasures of the Seven Seas

A Pirate’s Adventure – Treasures of the Seven Seas

One of our favorite experiences from our recent trip to Walt Disney World was an interactive game in Adventureland called A Pirate’s Adventure – Treasures of the Seven Seas. We had never taken the time to discover what this little adventure was all about until this trip. We knew from our Disney Cruise that our nephew James, loved the interactive game offered on the Disney Cruise Line. So, before we went to WDW I started looking at the various games offered in the parks. I read up on the Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom, Agent P’s Adventure in Epcot, and A Pirate’s Adventure in Adventureland. For reasons we will discuss in just a moment, I decided the Pirate’s Adventure seemed like the best option for this trip. However, I had no idea it would be as big of a hit as it turned out to be. I’m so excited to tell you all about it today.
