Live-Action-Dumbo.jpg

At Tuesday’s live presentation at CinemaCon in Las Vegas, NV there was literally an elephant in the room. Disney revealed some footage from the Tim Burton version of the upcoming live-action Dumbo film.

While Disney has not officially released any footage yet worldwide, many at the event took a picture of little Dumbo and shared him with the world.

Dumbo is scheduled to be released on March 29, 2019.
Isn’t he adorable?! Let us know your thoughts in the comments.

by Rhonda Moffit, Moffits-Mad Hatter Adventures    April 24, 2018

In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, Mark Renfrow, show director with Disney Parks Live Entertainment, commented that the changes being made to bring Donald Duck to DinoLand USA is a permanent improvement to the area.

Renfrow said that the theming will have a “slightly temporary feel” but that the “[changes] are here forever”. He claimed that the area will “feel much more alive and definitely have so much more for the family and the kids”.

When completed this duck-friendly overlay will have seven brand new meet and greet areas, eight in total. Characters that will have their own meet and greet areas will be:

  • Launchpad McQuack with a hangar backdrop
  • Scrooge McDuck
  • Donald Duck in a welcome center
  • Daisy Duck in a costume design area
  • Goofy in a midway game backdrop
  • Pluto in the Boneyard
  • Chip and Dale on the Cretaceous Trail

How about that?! Excited for the changes? Tell us in the comments!

Walt Disney World Thrills

by Rhonda Moffit, Moffits-Mad Hatter Adventures    April 18, 2018

EPCOT_DPIRIDESYSGMTT_20171002_8104858465
Yes, we love our Test Track!

As Disney fans and travel agents, we are always surprised when we hear about people being too scared to ride some of the thrilling attractions at Walt Disney World. It is understandable that health issues should not be ignored, but other than that we can not make too much sense out of it- it’s Disney! Live a little!

The most thrilling rides for thrill seekers at Walt Disney World have been chosen in a poll conducted by Walt’s Basement- for the Love of All Things Disney this past year. (You can find their group on Facebook HERE!)

The chosen thrills are:

  • Test Track- the end of this ride is fantastic, especially at night.
  • Big Thunder Mountain- the wildest ride in the wilderness!
  • DINOSAUR- it will shake you to your core- literally.
  • Splash Mountain- yes, you may get a little wet, or completely soaked.
  • Space Mountain- it only goes 28 mph, but you will swear you are going faster.
  • Expedition Everest- the Yeti may not function as intended but it will leave you breathless!
  • Rock ‘N’ Roller Coaster- absolutely fantastic for rock and rollers.
  • Tower of Terror- one of the best queues at WDW, but this is not the typical elevator ride.

In addition to these, I would like to add my new favorite- Avatar Flight of Passage. While it is more of a simulator it is so exhilarating that I have to mention it. Nothing like soaring on the back of a banshee.

I also love Mission Space, although if you are claustrophobic you will not want to ride. I like it on Orange level- crank it up, Disney! I actually rode it twice in a row on our last adventure to EPCOT.

If you love thrilling and memorable attractions, Walt Disney World is the place to be. Not to mention that they have the best safety record in the business.

Do you agree with this list? Think anything else should be added? Tell me in the comments.

A Tale of D23, 2017- The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

Because dates for D23 Expo 2019 were announced today we are reblogging this from our last experience for you.

Mztressofallevil's Disney Doings

By Rhonda Moffit, Moffits-Mad Hatter Adventures  July 18, 2017

20170714_084246

We attended the Disney D23 Expo which took place on July 14-16, 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center. There was much to see and much to do.

20170714_083503

There will be many upcoming posts here on the blog with specific pictures and details on the individual exhibits and celebrities that we met (thanks to the help of some of my personal Disney friends!), so be sure and watch for them. This article, however, is an editorial and more of an overview of the experience as a whole. Stop reading now if you are not prepared to read my honest opinion- because that is what I am going to give.

In our travels, we are not naive, as we have a lot of experience with D23 and with all of the other Disney parks, etc.  We were thankful for the insight…

Route 66 and CARS LAND

Because I was recently asked to share this one again…..here you go!

Mztressofallevil's Disney Doings

 Growing up the daughter of a classic car expert (and former drag racer) was not without tales of Historic Route 66. My Dad told me of a time when it was realistic to take off in a large car with fins and cruise West, taking in all the sights and neon of motels, kitschy shops, and a variety of roadside attractions. By the time I was old enough to experience Route 66, all that was left were ghosts of the glory days and skeletal remains of these iconic places. Then Disney released the film “Cars“. Cars was the last film I watched with my Dad before he passed away, and he was not normally a big Disney guy (think more like John Wayne!). He loved Cars, however, and told my children, husband, and myself once again what it was like to have lived the legend.
