Disney D23 Expo: Ask For Something Weird

What are YOUR thoughts about D23? Are you going to attend? Wish you were attending?

For The Record

Preview image for this weekend’s big expo released by Marvel and Disney.

This weekend’s heavily anticipated Disney D23 Expo event is mostly anticipated for the potential of Star Wars: Episode VII news, but it would be foolish to ignore Marvel and Pixar, who no doubt have big things up their sleeves as well. It is the former who have released a promo image for the event, simply saying “Ask for something WEIRD”.

What this is alluding to is uncertain, but the official line says that if you ask you will “get your first look at an all-new project coming from Marvel and Disney!”

The most popular possibility would be a much sought after Doctor Strange announcement, with weird obviously a synonym for strange. Fans have been clamouring for a Strange film ever since Marvel Studios opened its doors, and it is heavily rumoured to be part of the Phase…

Just another day at Disneyland (Oh, and new Fantasy Faire stuff, too!)

Joanna Volavka

Disneyland castle in spring

A couple of weeks ago, Disneyland opened a new section of Fantasyland called Fantasy Faire. It’s basically a small annex beside Aurora’s Castle, but it adds an outdoor stage where they do short live-action plays about five times a day, and a Royal Hall where you get to meet princesses.

Disneyland Figaro

We didn’t have a particular plan to go, just sort of decided last minute (and hey, it’s only about an hour and a half away, so why not?), so last Tuesday we drove up and spent the day.

Disneyland azaleas

The flowers are blooming everywhere because it’s spring (even in the desert there are flowers, but I’ll get photos of that later this week), and Disneyland looked colorful and happy. Plus it was still the week before spring break, so no lines!

Disneyland Fantasy Faire

Of course we had to check out the new section, and the princess line was surprisingly short, so we…

Makes you walk a little taller….

Deborah's Disney Diaries

TIMG_1188he American Adventure, as I have said, is a terrific show in America in Epcot. During the Christmas season, there were wonderful carolers, but this show is so entertaining, multiple visits are encouraged.  Dr. Benjamin Franklin and Samuel Clemens( AKA Mark Twain), tell the story of America. Prior to entering the auditorium, one enters a escalator where all the flags that created America to the present one we are familiar with in present day.IMG_1197 Listening to the narrator as well as the conversation between Dr. Franklin and Clemens, one sits a little taller in your chair, and leaving you walk a little taller.

History of Mickey Mouse — Infographic

What do you think?

NJBiblio

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E

I am not shy at all to admit that I am in love with a mouse.  I have always adored Mickey and millions of other around the world have as well — so much so that he has become instantly recognizable in every corner of the globe and a part of many cultures. But how did our hero rise from his humble beginnings as a replacement for Walt Disney’s lost character of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit to the superstar he is now?  Today’s inforgraphic traces his history and evolution from his “birth” in 1928 to present.

World Secrets: Jellyrolls Dueling piano bar near Disney’s Boardwalk Resort

Disneyways

Our latest edition to our World Secrets Series is taking us to Jellyrolls! This adult-oriented facility provides a noisy – yet very FUN retreat for the 21 and up crowd.   Jellyrolls  is named after Jelly Roll Morton, a legendary jazz pianist, not a desssert. His real name was Ferdinand Joseph LaMothe – but that probably wouldn’t fit on the marquee quite as well.

jelly

Depending on where you start out on Disney property,  you can get to Jellyrolls Piano Bar by boat, a bus, or even on foot. More on that later.

So what’s Jellyrolls like?  Well, it reminded me of Howl at the Moon, which is a similar piano bar located here in Orlando, and in 15 other locations across the country. What makes this different is it is at Disney, perhaps the only place in the world where you will hear a gritty-voiced piano man sing a song…

Trailer For Disney’s Planes

PLANES

Dane Cook has been tapped to voice the lead character Dusty, a plane with high hopes in “Disney’s Planes.” Inspired by the world of “Cars” and directed by Disneytoon Studios veteran and aviation enthusiast Klay Hall (“King of the Hill,” “The Simpsons”), “Disney’s Planes” is an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure about Dusty’s dream of competing as a high-flying air racer—and his decidedly unfortunate fear of heights. The film takes off in theaters in 3D on Aug. 9, 2013

The all-new story offers an exciting cast of characters and centers on Dusty’s high-flying dream. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing, so he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.
