Favorite Disney Views | The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop

Welcome to The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop where each week we gather together and share our Disney vacation photos. Would you like to link up your #DisneySide pictures or hop around to all the blogs linked up? Look no further than the bottom of this post.

A few of my favorite views.

There are so many that come to mind. Not pictured but much loved is the view from the verandah at sunset and sunrise on cruises, my sons first walk down Main Street USA or their first fireworks show, the animals at Animal Kingdom Lodge at night and in the morning while sitting on my balcony. I could go on and on.

Pictured: castle fireworks, the castle during Magic Hours, Christmastime, favorite attractions, fun with food, good night kiss on a full moon, my bed at the end of the day

Star Wars-Themed Lands Detailed Model and Fly Through Video

In case you missed it. Over the weekend at D23 Expo 2017, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Chairman Bob Chapek unveiled a first look at the detailed model of the Star Wars-themed lands that are under development at Disneyland park in Anaheim, Calif. and Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Fla.



The Star Wars-themed lands represent the largest single-themed land expansion at 14 acres each will open in 2019.to the delight of thousands of fans in attendance.

“To say we are excited for the Star Wars-themed lands to open in 2019 is an understatement,” “All along, we have said this will be game-changing, and through the model, we can begin to see how truly epic these immersive new worlds will be,” Chapek said.



There will be two anchor attractions for guests to experience.
Guest will have a chance to pilot the Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission, and to be right in the middle of a battle between the First Order and the Resistance. 

For a fly through look, click the image below:

Almost Wordless Wednesday | Pirates of the Caribbean

Hi over there!
Welcome to the latest edition of The Wordless and Almost Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic.com where each week we get together to blog hop, link up and share our #DisneySide Wordless Wednesday or Almost Wordless Wednesday, Disney related picture posts.

Adventure is the theme for this week.

Big changes are coming to the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction in Disneyland in California, Walt Disney World in Orlando, Disneyland Paris, and Tokyo Disneyland. With Paris as the first park to be renovated. The scheduled reopening is later this month. I am looking forward to reading everyone's reviews.

Among the addition of new characters from the film series, the animatronic auction scene, "Take a Wench for a Bride" will be re-imagined transforming the famous flirty redheaded woman into an auctioneer inviting the locals to “surrender yer loot” at an auction.
There will be no more pirates shouting “We want the redhead!” although I think Guests will continue the tradition for years to come.

The Wordless and Almost Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop | Happy First Day Of Summer!

Hi over there!
This is the latest edition of The Wordless and Almost Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop here at Focused on the Magic.com where each week we get together to blog hop, link up and share our #DisneySide Wordless Wednesday or Almost Wordless Wednesday, Disney related picture posts.

Happy first day of summer! Also known as the summer solstice, or the longest day of the year and the official start of summer for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.
The theme or topic of this week's hop is Summertime.

In summers past I've been to Stonehenge, enjoyed the beaches of the Hamptons and Jersey Shore, boating on Great South Bay, the Long Island Sound and Jersey waters, lounging around the pool, camping, road trips, cruises, the annual balloon festival and flights to exotic and not so exotic locations. Always accompanied by lots of food, family, and fun. The most family fun trips hands down have been at Disney World and on Disney Cruises.

Summer time at the Disney Parks is hot, hot, hot! 
I decided to share a few of my favorite ways we stay cool besides drinking copious amounts of water whilst spritzing ourselves with misters, hopping from shop to shop, attraction to attraction based on the air conditioning, and swimming after hours. 

Who doesn't love The Yacht & Beach Club and Animal Kingdom Lodge pools to swim away the heat?
Or zipping around on water mice by the Contemporary and Wilderness Lodge. And a cool frosty Blue Raspberry Goofy Glacier at Animal Kingdom.

Sharing The Magic Statue | Wordless Wednesday

Welcome to The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop where each week we gather together and share our Disney vacation photos and hop from blog to blog. Want to link up your #DisneySide pictures? Look no further than the bottom of this post.

Throughout the parks you'll discover Blaine Gibson, the multi talented sculptors works in attractions, movies and statues, including the famous "Partner's Statue".

One statue I always look for in Magic Kingdom is the "Sharing The Magic" statue. It depicts Roy O. Disney seated with Minnie on a park bench. You have to admire Blaine Gibson not only for his talent but his work ethic. This statue was delivered in 1999 when he was 81!
In my research I also learned from Gene Duncan, the Disney Parks Blog Photographer that Gibson created the statue to show Roy holding Minnie’s hand from underneath as way to show how Roy supported his brother.

Wordless Wednesday | Goofy Day!

Welcome to The Disney Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop where each week we gather together and share our Disney vacation photos and hop from blog to blog. Want to link up your #DisneySide pictures? Look no further than the bottom of this post.

Today we are celebrating Goofy Day!
Mickey's whacky pal Goofy first appeared in Mickey's Revue on May 25, 1932, but it wasn't until 1934 that he was named Goofy.
One of my favorite close encounters is with The Great Goofini in Pete’s Silly Sideshow in Magic Kingdom.
There you can meet The Astounding Donaldo, The Great Goofini, Minnie Magnifique and Madame Daisy Fortuna. Two separate lines form to meet the stars. One for Daisy and Minnie and the other is for Donald and Goofy. It's a spacious themed meet and greet with plenty of room for Goofini to ham it up for the cameras.

Happy Birthday, Goofy!! ah-hyuck! hoo hoo hoo hoo!
Happy Goofy Day! The Great Goofini Under The Big Top
