Whether you are on the Disney Dining Plan or not, who can resist a snack while at the Magic Kingdom? There are so many snack locations to choose from that it can be hard to narrow down to the one that hits the spot. Let’s explore my family’s best snack locations found in the Magic Kingdom to help you know where to go. I have listed one snack location per Magic Kingdom Land so no matter where you are in the park, you can find a scrumptious treat!
- Main Street, U.S.A.’s Main Street Bakery would normally win out in my family for the top snack location, but it is currently closed for refurbishment and should re-open sometime in June 2013. Our close runner up is Plaza Ice Cream Parlor where you can get tasty hand-dipped ice cream cones, sundaes, and floats. They have the most adorable Mickey Mouse Ice Cream Cone that has 2 chocolate wafers as Mickey’s ears.
- Adventureland is home to the infamous Dole Whip at Aloha Isle. You can get the Dole Whip as soft-serve, soft-serve swirl, or a float. Any option is a great way to taste the original pineapple-y goodness.
I was sad to learn that ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’, which has been one of the best additions to the ‘Star Wars’ canon, was coming to an end. It had some of the best storytelling and character development that the ‘Star Wars’ universe had seen while also keeping it alive for fans new and old of the franchise. On the tail of the announcement that the series was ending though, Lucasfilm had announced we’d have another series to take its place. Up until now, it’s only been rumor and speculation on what the new series would be, and thankfully, we now have that answer. Luasfilm has announced ‘Star Wars Rebels’, a new animated series that will premiere in Fall 2014. Hit the jump for the full press release, as well as a video introduction to the series. Are you excited to see a new animated ‘Star Wars’ series?
We’re in the final stretch coming up on Disney’s release on their newest film, ‘The Lone Ranger’, which opens on July 3, 2013. So this is the time when the marketing goes into overdrive, just to make sure people remember that the film is on the horizon. With that in mind, Disney has released a final trailer for the film, which stars Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp as the popular heroes of The Lone Ranger and Tonto, respectively. Also starring Tom Wilkinson, William Finchter, and Helena Bonham Carter, the film is a new take on the popular pulp duo, as they first come together, and become the men we know them to be. It’s been a long time we’ve had a western on the big screen, so it’ll be great to dive back into the old west. The film is directed by ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ trilogy director Gore Verbinski, and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. Are you excited for ‘The Lone Ranger’? Let me know in the comments below, and hit the jump for the newest, and final, trailer for the film.

Hey there guys and gals, Anonymouse here! It’s a great day for some Disney gossip, don’t ya think? Well, I had to search high and low to find this to share with you, but I think you’ll be pretty excited to hear the news! Soarin’ Over the Horizon may be coming to Disney California Adventure Park and Epcot in 2016.
My Disney friends are talking about a long-anticipated update to the Soarin’ attractions at Disney California Adventure and Epcot. Although you may have heard this before, we are now hearing they are expected to be updated and open in 2016.
The new version of the Soarin’ attractions will debut at Shanghai Disneyland with the name “Soarin’ Over The Horizon”. It is expected to use the current Soarin’ ride system, but will dramatically expand the scope of the current ride movie, which as of now only shows a range of areas in California.
