This week is a live demonstration of glass blowing at the Crystal Arts Shop on Main Street USA. Multiple times during the day a CM will sit down and actually work on the crystal pieces that are sold in the store. This is a great way to beat the heat and crowds or to kill a little time. Times are not set for when they will be working, but take a stroll into the shop and I am sure you will be able to catch them easily.
Episode 59 - Voyage of the Little Mermaid, "Part of Your World"
Posted August 14, 2009
This week is a clip from the show Voyage of the Little Mermaid at Disney's Hollywood Studios. This is where Ariel is singing "Part of Your World". I would post the entire show, but unfortunately shortly after this song there were technical difficulties and the rest of the show was canceled.
This week we take you on a tour of the Maharajah Jungle Trek in Asia at the Animal Kingdom. Though a walking tour, this attraction is very entertaining with great views of gibbons, bats and tigers just to name a few. It is suggested that you get your FP to Kali River Rapids and then take a stroll on the Jungle Trek.
This week we experience the Kim Possible World Showcase Adventure. We had never experienced it so the KP CM gave us China as it was one of the "better ones". I do have to agree, it was really cool. Now this episode is edited to purposefully leave out about half of this missions and also shot so you don't exactly know where the missions spots are (it also helped it was shot at night) however, if you do not want to be spoiled at all skip this episode.
This week is a very short episode. We have seen Wishes from the park, but here is an alternate view from the monorail. Trying to beat the crowds from the park I hopped on the monorail and it was in time to watch some of Wishes from the monorail and then also see the ending at the TTC (which by the way has the music playing, great little tip if you are parked and want to beat crowds out, head over to the TTC before the start of Wishes and you will have a great view with less crowds).
This week I post clips from EPCOT's Flower and Garden Festival that was at the park from March 18 to May 31. Originally I was going to post this as the first (maybe second) episodes in June, but real life got in the way. This is the first in a two parter, with the second part coming next week. Also this episode did not touch on all EPCOT has to offer during the Flower and Garden Festival. Next year the Flower and Garden Festival will be held March 3 - May 16, 2010.
This week we travel to EPCOT for a viewing of Illuminations: Reflection of Earth. We stood between the Japanese and American Pavilions and as you can see got an amazing shot from when the globe started to come out into the World Showcase Lagoon. This performance of ROE is different than the typical shows. Can you figure out how?
This week we are still keeping it in the Magic Kingdom. We head on over to the Swiss Family Treehouse which an easily overlooked/passed by attraction. With that said though, I don't blame anyone as it is a walking tour and it is up and down stairs. Who wants to walk up and down stairs when you are already tired from running around the parks? In addition to that, there is nothing spectacular or jaw dropping to see. So enjoy as I do all the walking for you and you can sit back in your big comfy chair and experience this attraction.
This week we are at the Magic Kingdom to see a performance by the Main Street Philharmonic. This 12 piece brass and percussion plays classic ragtime tunes such as "Rag Time Band". They also perform Disney classics. In addition to shows on Main Street, the Philharmonic participate in the Daily Parade as well as the Flag Ceremony. There are many chances for you to run into them during the day and each performance within the day is different than the last.
