The Art of Animation Resort will open in summer of 2012. This is a value resort located near Pop Century that will have 4 themed areas: Finding Nemo, Cars, Little Mermaid and Lion King. The Lion King, Cars and Finding Nemo buildings are planned to have only family suites. To see the Disney World overview, click here!
Good Luck to all the runners at Walt Disney World this weekend for the races!
Back in August I posted on ways to countdown to your trip to Disney. I mentioned the Disney Vacation Connection, but due to the age of my laptop I wasn’t able to download it or use it prior to our trip in December. 🙁
However, with the new laptop I got for Christmas I have finally been able to download the Disney Vacation Connection! This is a free desktop message application that lets you customize your interests and counts down to your next Disney Vacation. You can get up to date information about your favorite resort. According to the Vacation Connection website this is what you can do with this download:
- stay up to date with the latest news and special offers.
- plan your next magical Disney vacation.
- answer polls and quizzes to earn points for Disney downloads.
- find out insider information.
- download a vacation countdown clock.
- access a calendar of special events.
- get great wallpapers and animation- all packed with pixie dust!
- even check out the weather.
I’m actually borrowing this idea from somewhere else, but I can’t remember where. It was either on a blog I read or in a Disney email newsletter I receive. I’m sorry if you are reading this and it was your original idea and I can’t give you credit. I really wish I could.
I got these in my stocking for Christmas and ate them today. It reminds me of the free chocolate from Ghirardelli in downtown Disney! YUMMMMMY.

When we got back to DHS, we went strait to Tower of Terror and Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. C-man took a nap, I peopled watched and JAG and daddy rode the ToT. Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster was temporarily shut down. After we finished Sunset Boulevard, we made our way to Starring Rolls Cafe to get cupcakes! I was very pleased with my selection!
After our cupcake sugar high, we went exploring! We all rode the Great Movie Ride and were able to see the Cowboy scene. I like that one better than the Gangsters, so I was pleased! We took in Playhouse Disney and C-man LOVED it! That was one of my highlights! His face was priceless and his dancing was amazing! 🙂 We walked through One Man’s Dream and I cried at the movie. We made our way back to Toy Story Mania in time for our fast passes. At 6:10, the standby wait was 100 minutes!! By the time we got off the ride the wait was still 100 minutes and the park wasn’t even opened for 100 more minutes! CRAZY!! Once Toy Story Mania was out of the way we walked through the Osborne Spectacle of Lights and went back to Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster for the boys to ride. It was a good ride to end on! We missed our dinner reservations at Hollywood and Vine at 5:45 because of our fastpass return for Toy Story Mania. That was sad because I was looking forward to eating there. Again, there is always next time!
Yes, I’m a day late, but I want to wish all of you a Happy 2011! May it be full of wishes, dreams, imagination, excitement, and happiness!
