Hasty Tasty

Disney just launched a new Muppet cooking site that appears to be aimed at me (atleast my last name)...Hasty Tasty Cooking Tips with Cat Cora & The Muppets.  Some great videos...

Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party 2010

Great report over at Disney Every Day on this year's event.  This is the one hard ticketed event I've never been able to make but really want to go.
Have you ever wondered if it was really worth it to pay extra to get into one of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties? I am asked that quite often and my answer is always a BIG FAT YES!

Isabella Rossellini leads off Epcot's Candlelight Processional

Oh, man...would love to make this one:
Celebrity narrators vary throughout the Candlelight Processional each reading for a few days. Disney is still finalizing the schedule for 2010 Epcot Candlelight Processional narrators. However, Isabella Rossellini will lead off the 2010 holiday performances on Nov. 26 and other celebrities scheduled to appear include Whoopi Goldberg and Jodi Benson, the voice of The Little Mermaid’s Ariel. (The schedule of narrators is subject to change.)

Don't ya hate when you second guess your answers on the Disney World Mom's panel...I do it every year and this year was a record...about 5 seconds after I hit submit I did my best Homer Simpson "DOH!" and wanted to add a couple of more facts about one of the questions asked...hopefully they'll be forgiving.

Eighteen minutes and counting

At 9am ET the entries will start for the 2011 Disney World Mom's Panel...I'll be pulling up my skirt again this year in an attempt to be an official "mom"...

The Lunching Pad menu

It's designer hotdog time at the Lunching Pad in Tomorrowland.  The turkey legs are gone and now we gotz hotdogs:
three "designer hot dogs" to its menu. The taco hot dog is topped with ground beef, lettuce, salsa and sour cream. There are two versions of the reuben hot dog: one with beef, onions, peppers and melted cheese, another with more traditional corned beef, sauerkraut, Swiss cheese and Thousand Island dressing.

Epic Mickey

Can't wait to play this new game...(I mean, watch my kids play this new game, of course)

Epcot Seqway Tour

Ran across this video on MousePlanet for the Epcot Segway tour...not exactly a glowing review but it's still something I'm needing to experience (and maybe the offroad Segway tour over at Fort Wilderness too:

Disney's Tangled Meme

Looks like Disney is attempting a viral video meme over on youtube for Tangled.

Meet the Moms

You can sign up to meet the current members of the Walt Disney World Mom's Panel at the Odyssey in Epcot on October 2, 2010 @ 2:30pm.  And yes, I'll be applying yet again this year to be a "mom".  You need to RSVP over here for a chance to get into the event.

Some new lunch options

Looks like there's a couple of new lunch options available.

  • Over at Trails End (one of the best bargains on property),  WDW is offering a pilot program serving an ala carte menu instead of the standard buffet.  Breakfast & Dinner will still be the bargain buffet.
  • At Chef Mickey's,  there's going to be a "limited run" character lunch buffet for 14 days in September 19- October 2. Cost is $28.75 including tax, $15.97 ages 3 to 9, under 3 free.

New Space Mountain soundtrack

Sounds like Space Mountain will be getting a new soundtrack soon.
According to the "Space Mountain Project Team," the new soundtrack will include "a zippy musical track, the whoosh of passing asteroids, and the rush of interstellar traffic."

Disney Dream

So we're contemplating doing the unheard of around this house and not hitting WDW this Fall.  Was excited yesterday when seeing the new Disney Cruiseline "kids sail free" offer but of course the one week we can go is the blackout date in Feb 2011.  So with a little adjusting, I think instead of the 7-day with free kids we may have to try out the 3-day journey on the new Disney Dream.  We've never cruised before so got a lot of homework to do...and also preparation for the AquaDuck.
