There are always new and exciting things happening at Disney World. Here are some things we are looking forward to this month.
Toy Story Land (opens June 30th)
The biggest thing happening this month happens the last day of the month. Toy Story Land is opening in Hollywood Studios on June 30th.
If you will be at Disney World a bit earlier in the month, keep an eye out. There may be soft openings, where you can see parts of the land or ride before the official opening.
Toy Story Land is bringing 2 new rides to Hollywood Studios – Slinky Dog Dash Roller Coaster and Alien Swirling Saucers. Don’t worry though, Toy Story Mania isn’t going anywhere. It will be incorporated into the new land.
The premise to Toy Story Land is that you shrink to the size of a toy and play in Andy’s backyard with characters from the movies.
I am so lucky because on Sunday October 1, 2017, I got to attend the Epcot 35th Anniversary Celebration. As all the merchandise says – I was there!
For those who don’t know, Epcot was founded (as EPCOT Center) on October 1, 1982 making Sunday, October 1, 2017 the 35th Anniversary of Epcot’s grand opening.
I really feel privileged to have been able to go to the celebration. I’ve never been to a special event or celebration at Disney before. Luckily this one was on a Sunday, so I didn’t even have to take off work.
To be clear the anniversary celebration was open to all those with tickets, including Annual Passholders; it was not a hard ticket event or anything like that. Still, I’m so glad I was able to go.
This post is a recap of the Epcot 35th Anniversary celebration, including all the little touches that Disney added to make the day at Epcot special. I’ve also included tips, tricks, and hints I picked up for what I hope will be my, and your, next Disney celebration adventure. Continue reading →
Yehaa Bob – Say his name in some circles, and you get whispered reverence, while everyone else says huh? Until my last Disney trip my life was infinitely worse because I didn’t know about possibly the best kept secrets at Disney World. And it’s free. Not included in park admission free. Completely free.
Disney Nerd Tip (DNT): Yehaa Bob is one of the best nighttime entertainment options at Disney World, and it is free even without a park ticket
