Magic Kingdom

Heading to the parks over the next few months? Then you may want to commemorate that special birthday or family celebration with a fancy fondant cake at Magic Kingdom as they soon may be a thing of the past. Disney announced that they will  officially stop offering cake customization at Magic Kingdom restaurants starting December 15.  A message on the Cake Ordering Hotline (407-827-2253) currently states that as of mid-December cake orders will no longer be available for Magic Kingdom restaurants. The announcement also states that alternative options may be available in the future but there is currently no further information on what that might be.

At the moment, Magic Kingdom seems to be the only park effected by this change.  Quick calls to the Hollywood Studios and Animal Kingdom hotlines suggested that no official announcement has been made as to whether or not they are suspending services as well. So at the moment it looks like cakes can still be delivered to the other theme parks as well as Walt Disney World resorts. However, it does make us wonder whether changes to the whole cake ordering operation are afoot. Readers, are encouraged to check back for further information.

Guests visiting Magic Kingdom, after December 15, that want a cake to accompany their meal can still opt for the Celebrate the Day cakes but personalized options will not be available and the products are just standard vanilla or chocolate round cakes.

For those unfamiliar with the cake ordering process, Guests looking for  a special way to commemorate a birthday or special occasion can contact the Cake Ordering Hotline 6o days  – 72 hours in advance and work with staff to come up with your edible work of art. Guest can pick flavor, theme, budget, size and an array of other customized options.  These can be delivered to theme parks and resorts. Disney’s customized cakes are a real thing of beauty and are filled with lovely little pixie-dust infused touches making them an unforgettable memory.

Visitors to Disney World also have the option of ordering cakes from Amorette’s Patisserie at Disney Springs or through Disney Floral and Gifts.  Check out this article at Disney Addicts for further details. 

Hopefully this Magic Kingdom move doesn’t mark the loss of a service that many Disney guests have come to love.

I know I’m not alone in this thought: my favorite Avenger has got to be Thor. So when ‘Captain America: Civil War’ premiered with no Thor I was full of questions! Where was he, and what was he doing that was so important?? Finally my questions have been answered.

During the Marvel studios panel at Comic-Con in July a short film was released just to those in attendance, it has now been made public. While everyone was taking sides between #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan, this is all about #TeamThor.

During the filming of “Thor: Ragnarok” director Taika Waititi took some spare time to put together a mockumentary about the God of Thunder. It delves into the softer side of Thor, with Chris Hemsworth (Thor) having a dorky roommate, Darryl, who helps him send peacemaking emails to Captain America and Iron Man during their Civil War clash.

This is an adorable short film for all Avenger fans. Just in time to tease the “Captain America: Civil War” DVD and Blu-Ray release which is coming up in September.

It appears that children under the age of ten years old are now being asked to scan their finger before entering the Walt Disney World theme parks. Disney has made no formal announcement of the recent change although WDW News Today is reporting that the new requirement went into effect last week.

This is most likely being implemented in order to help eliminate ticket fraud and resale. In the past, guests under the age of ten were not required to do a fingerprint scan or show a photo ID before entering the parks.

In the summer of 2014 Joseph and Danielle Jones packed their three daughters into the car and headed from their home in San Leandro to Anaheim for a family vacation at Disneyland. However, the family allegedly got more then they asked for.

The Jones’s stayed at Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa and first discovered a problem when their 9-year-old daughter was complaining about painful itchy bites on her face, but the family dismissed it without taking it too serious.

The next day the family was covered in bites and they went to complain at the front desk. From there they were told to talk with the hotel’s housekeeping department, which they did and were told it was mosquito bites and not bed bugs.

The bites had worsened over their vacation and on their way home they stopped by a hospital in Oakland where a Doctor told them the bites were from bed bugs. Once they returned home they threw out off of their clothing and anything else they had with them at the resort.

The Jones’s has recently filed a lawsuit this past Thursday which alleges battery, negligence, fraudulent concealment, nuisance and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress and seeks unspecified damages. The family has suffered emotional distress, physical pain and the youngest child is permanently scarred.

Prior to this lawsuit there were complaints of bed bugs on two separate website referring to Disney’s Grand Californian Hotel and Spa.

There has been no confirmation of this, but we heard through the grapevine that there is a rumor that a Sprinkles Cupcakes may be in the works for Downtown Disney Anaheim.

The Sprinkles Cupcakes location in Disney Springs at the Walt Disney World Resort has been hugely successful, so it seems to be a logical choice for Disneyland to jump on the bandwagon and open a location as well! I wonder if the Disneyland location will have a cupcake ATM too?

If we hear more, we will be sure to keep you posted!

News has just come out that Sam Mendes is in ‘very early’ talks with Disney to direct a live-action version of “James And The Giant Peach.” Talks are also happening with Nick Hornby to write the screenplay.

The original book, published in 1961, is centered on 4-year-old James Henry Trotter who lives in England with his loving parents until his parents are killed by a rhinoceros. He’s taken in by his two cruel aunts and leaves several years later thanks to an old man giving him magic crocodile tongues which produce a massive single peach — which contains human-like insects who befriend James.

Tim Burton directed the 1996 film version of the book. It was a combination of live action and stop motion. Produced by Burton and Denise Di Novi.

“James and the Giant Peach” is the latest in a growing number of live-action titles based on Disney animated films including “Maleficent,” “Cinderella” and “The Jungle Book.” The studio is developing live-action movies such as “The Little Mermaid” with Lin-Manuel Miranda, “Beauty and the Beast” starring Emma Watson and “Cruella” with Emma Stone.

According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s five people were scammed into buying fake Disneyland theme park tickets by Brian Edward Anderton, 43, of Pasadena CA.

Anderton was charged on five accounts ranging from grand theft to petty theft for selling fake tickets. He pleaded not guilty on all charges.

Anderton allegedly earned more than $2,400.00 between the months of January and August selling the fraudulent tickets through Craiglist.

The fake tickets were only discovered once the buyers tried to enter the theme park at Disneyland to use the tickets.

If convicted, Anderton faces five years in prison.

Disney Zika

Chip and Co. reported earlier this week that Disney was stepping up efforts to protect visitors from the increasing threat of the Zika virus by potentially draining and refilling the pools at its abandoned River Country Water Park to tackle the issue of stagnant standing water.  Though Disney denied that this was the motivation behind the move, it would appear that they are tacking more decisive measures to make sure that guests are protected from the ever-increasing Zika threat and the mosquitoes which are known to spread the virus.

Sources at the Orlando Sentinel are reporting that Disney released an email announcing that they will begin offering insect repellent to guests at the theme parks, Disney Springs and ESPN Wide World of Sports.  Aerosol cans will also be placed in the rooms at Disney’s 25 on-site resort.  There is no news yet on how theme park distribution will occur (visitors at Chip and Co are encouraged to watch this space for further details.)  However,  it has been suggested that signs will be posted throughout the property letting guests know that mosquito repellent is available and where they can find it.

According to the Sentinel, a Disney insider issued the following statement: “In an abundance of caution we are accelerating preventative efforts throughout or property, including complimentary insect repellent to our guest with helpful guidelines from the Center for Disease Control and prevention.”

The CDC is currently documenting non-travel related cases of the Zika virus in Florida as it slowly migrates upwards from South America. Information can be found directly through the CDC website.  The virus poses the strongest risk to expecting mothers where it has been known to cause birth defect in developing infants.

Japanese bakery Cozy Corner has begun showing their Halloween spirit with these all new Disney Villain Halloween treats.

First up is this set of nine mini Disney Villain inspired cakes which comes in fun Villain inspired box. Cost for this Disney Villain box is only 2,100-yen or US$20. They almost look too pretty to eat. Notice I said almost…

Here is what you can find in the box:

  • Sleeping Beauty’s Maleficent (a chocolate cream and blueberry cream cocoa cream puff)
  • Snow White’s evil Queen (apple jam and cream tart)
  • 101 Dalmatians’ Cruella de Vil (raspberry jam and chocolate cream/condensed milk tart)
  • The Lion King’s Scar (condensed milk cream and pumpkin roll cake)
  • Alice in Wonderland’s Queen of Hearts (white chocolate cream and raspberry gelée cocoa tart)

  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame’s Frollo (chocolate cream and blueberry sponge cake)
  • The Three Little Pigs’ Big Bad Wolf (orange jam and chocolate cream tart)

cake

Of course leaving Mickey Mouse out of the Halloween theme would be criminal, so be prepared for the Joyjoy Halloween Pumpkin Cake which is a Mickey face filled with layers of maple cream and diced pumpkin, covered in pumpkin cream, sprinkled with crunchy caramel bits, and finished off with thin plates of chocolate forming Mickey’s face and ears. Doesn’t that look delish?

disney

If cake isn’t your thing they are also offering Joyjoy Halloween Pumpkin Pudding, topped with a swirl of whipped cream for 350-yen.

According to Rocket News the Disney Villain cake set and vampire Mickey cake go on sale September 1st, with the pudding joining them a few weeks later on September 16th. All three items will be available until October 31st.

Unfortunately these items aren’t available in the US, but they sure do look good!

For more info just check out their website, it is in Japanese so we had to use Google Translate.

Happy Halloween

“Alone Together” is a half-hour, single-camera comedy about two overlooked millennial misfits from different backgrounds trying to make their way into the vain and status-obsessed culture of Los Angeles only to find salvation in their male/female strictly platonic friendship. Esther Povitsky, Benji Aflalo and Eben Russell (“Last Man Standing”) serve as writers and executive producers on the pilot. Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone, Akiva Schaffer, Billy Rosenberg and Hunter Covington also serve as executive producers. Daniel Gray Longino (“Lady Dynamite,” “Portlandia”) will direct the pilot.
