Happy September! It’s one of my favorite months of the year. To start things off it’s my anniversary (we will be celebrating 3 years on the 3rd!), and it’s also one of my favorite times of year to visit Disney World. We went for our honeymoon and it was so empty we hardly had to wait for anything.
Disney in your Day news
I just recently started re-watching all of the Disney animated features, in order. I’ll be posting some thoughts on each one (Snow White is already up!). So look for one of those to come every 1-2 weeks. The Tower of Terror 10 miler looms ever closer, as does my trip to Disney. It will be a trip of many firsts – first 10 mile race, first time at Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, and first time at Food and Wine! I can’t wait! Finally, I would love to finish our restaurant bracket with the signature resort restaurants. I think this will be a toughie because there are so many fantastic ones out there. I’ll be interested to see the results!
- The Epcot Food and Wine festival has gotten some new events this year, including an after hours party for $79 per person and a premium package of $200 per person. Do you think it’s worth it?
- This is something I’m excited about: apparently Soarin’s video is going to be updated to “Soarin’ around the World,” featuring footage from countries around the globe. Word has it that a third theater will be added as well to hopefully lessen wait times.
- We all knew it was coming, but Bob Iger finally admitted that Star Wars will soon be expanded in the parks. His exact quote is that they are “developing designs for a far greater ‘Star Wars’ presence in the parks.”
- At Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party, you can pay an extra $99 per person for a dessert party and special viewing for the parade and fireworks. Worth it?
