The strongest part of the storm should hit between 8-9pm.  They can expect heavy rain, hail, constant lightning and winds of 40-50 mph along with gusts of up to 80 mph are expected as the sun goes down.

Although the entire state of Florida will see storms the counties most affected will include Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Lake, Volusia and Brevard.

Brevard County has activated their Emergency Operations Center and Seminole County plans to open at 6 p.m.

In 2007 Lake, Sumter and Volusia counties there was a violent storm that left 21 people dead and dozens of others injured leaving hundreds of homes and businesses destroyed or damaged and more than $200 million in damage.

*update at 6:43pm: there is a tornado warning for Orange and Lake counties until 6:45pm

While in Walt Disney World on December 25th 2015 an Orange County man named Tan Bui claims he was trampled in Disney Spring by an unknown person.  He has now filed a complaint against Disney for this incident.

Bui say he was at 1486 Buena Vista Drive in Disney Springs when he was knocked down and suffered physical injuries to his neck and shoulder.  He is claiming Disney did not provide properly trained guards and that the guards didn’t provide adequate security and failed to evaluate criminal activity.

Bui wants a trial by jury and is looking for a judgement against Disney for damages caused. We will update this article as more news comes out.

Bui is represented by Derek L. Metts of Metts Legal PA in Winter Park.

Oscar Martinez, the longest-tenured cast member at the Disneyland Resort, recently celebrated his 60th year working at the resort – the last 50 of them working at the café on Main Street, U.S.A. Originally, Oscar worked in Fantasyland quick-service locations, and over the years, trained many new cast members, including grill cooks from Tokyo Disneyland.

After years spent whipping up breakfasts and lunches for guests, Oscar now spends a lot of his time greeting guests at Carnation Café, where his breakfast potatoes are featured in a menu item named in his honor.

On Jan. 17, a couple of weeks after his Dec. 29 service anniversary, Oscar was presented with a one-of-a-kind award created just for him at Walt Disney Imagineering. The inspiration was “Cinderella”, a movie that has never been used to help design a service anniversary award.

Five-time Grammy winning and best-selling recording artist Celine Dion will perform an all-new original song, “How Does A Moment Last Forever,” for Disney’s live-action “Beauty and the Beast.” The song will also be included on the film’s soundtrack.

Written by eight-time Oscar®-winning composer Alan Menken (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin”) and veteran lyricist and three-time Oscar winner Tim Rice (“The Lion King,” “Evita”), “How Does A Moment Last Forever” is an emotional ballad about holding onto life’s precious moments. Portions of the song are performed throughout the film and interpolated into the underscore before Dion’s full-length version debuts in the film’s custom main-on-end title design.

Says Dion, “Being a part of the original ‘Beauty and the Beast’ was such a magical experience in my life, and I’m truly honored to be a part of this film again.”
President of Music for Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures Production, Mitchell Leib, approached the artist on behalf of the project with the idea of recording one of the three new songs written for the film. “Celine was the unanimous choice of the filmmakers and studio to perform this song,” says Leib, “And everyone involved with the film is thrilled she agreed to be part of this new live-action adaptation.”

Dion originally performed the duet “Beauty and the Beast” – featuring Menken’s haunting melody and two-time Oscar-winner Howard Ashman’s unforgettable lyrics – with Peabo Bryson for the animated film. The song became an instant classic and went on to receive an Academy Award®, Golden Globe® and three GRAMMY Awards.
Menken also provides the film score along with new recordings of the classic songs from the animated film written by himself and Ashman. The original motion picture soundtrack will be released by Walt Disney Records on March 10, 2017. You can pre-order it here.

We had mentioned recently that rumor had it that Planet Hollywood Observatory in Disney Springs was taking reservations for January 22nd and on. Even though there was no official announcement of an opening date from Disney, we hoped this meant it was a for sure thing that the newly renovated restaurant was opening next week.

 

However ,we hear today that our friend Kenny The Pirate had his January 23rd reservation cancelled by the restaurant and received a phone call stating that the new opening Date is January 27th.

 

We also had a Chip & Co. writer scheduled to attend an event today with a meet and greet with Guy Fieri at the restaurant, and that was cancelled as well. We were told they would get back to us with any rescheduling information.

 

Did you have a reservation that got cancelled as well?

The results of MBLM Brand Intimacy 2017 Report is in and among millennials Disney rated #1 most intimate brand! In case you haven’t heard of Brand Intimacy this is a study based on emotions, it is defined as a new paradigm that leverages and strengthens the emotional bonds between a person and a brand. The report analyzes the opinions of 6,000 consumers and 54,000 brand evaluations in the U.S., Mexico and UAE. The full report will be released on January 18, 2017

“Disney resonates with this age group because they grew up with the brand. It has kept up with their changing interests and now includes popular franchises like Star Wars and Marvel. Disney is also a mainstay for young families,” stated Mario Natarelli, MBLM’s managing partner. “Interestingly, five out of the top 10 brands for millennials are in the media & entertainment industry, which we believe reflects the prevailing mood of escapism and the need for respite.”

list

Following Disney, Amazon and Netflix ranked as the second and third most intimate brands for millennials. Comparatively, in MBLM’s 2015 report, Amazon placed first, followed by Apple and PlayStation.

The other brands that round out the top 10 are: Apple, Nintendo, Target, Chevrolet, Xbox, Google and YouTube.

Height Balloons

It has been a rumor now for quite some time that Disney is going to start building  Disney Vacation Club properties at a Moderate Resort, and many speculated Caribbean Beach would be the most likely location for this project. We speculated back in September that some changes would be coming when height test balloons were spotted at the resort. Height test balloons are used to simulate where peaks and tops of planned buildings would be, so that imagineers could visualize whether or not a project would need to be altered or would interfere with the overall aesthetic of the view for the location.

 

We hear now from WDW Magic that permits have been filed for an expansion at Caribbean Beach resort. The permit appears to be for 7 new buildings, with one large multi-level building. The area where the expansion is proposed is where the Barbados Village is located right now; and assumption is that the current village will be demolished for this new project, whatever it may be. Work is set to begin in 2017 with planned timeframe of sometime in 2019 for completion.

 

There is no official word from Disney as of yet, and we can only speculate that this may be part of the new DVC expansion, but we could be wrong, too. Don’t get your hopes up just yet for a moderate DVC location. If we learn more we will be sure to share it with you!

 

What do you think is going to be constructed at Caribbean Beach with the new permits?

Tomorrow night marks the return of The Main Street Electrical Parade to its original home, Disneyland. This is an event guests of the Disneyland resort in California have anxiously been waiting for since the announcement was made in 2016. Many guests have made plans months in advance to be at Disneyland on January 19th to view the return of the Main Street Electrical Parade.

 

However it seems Mother Nature may have other plans in mind, with forecasts of rain and storms for tomorrow evening during the return of MSEP. Due to the nature of the parade, heavy rains will inevitably ensure that the parade for the evening will be cancelled.

Should the Parade be cancelled due to the weather, Disney will be offering guests who are present at the event a Free One Day Park Ticket as compensation. Guests will be given more information about their complimentary return ticket at the event.

 

Inside the Magic has provided us with some details regarding the event Disneyland will be offering to celebrate the Homecoming of the Main Street Electrical Parade:

The Main Street Electrical parade preview includes:

  • Admission to the park from 7:30pm-midnight
  • Viewing of the parade
  • Collectible event credential
  • Red carpet welcome
  • Access to many park attractions
  • 70’s Dance Party in Tomorrowland
  • Special PhotoPass locations and complimentary downloads of the photos
  • Complimentary parking at the Mickey & Friends parking structure after 6pm

Tickets for the event are $95 and can be purchased by calling (714) 781-4636

Do you plan on being there to see the return of The Main Street Electrical Parade?

It’s long been an icon of Disney Springs (Formerly Downtown Disney), and Disney announced today the Characters in Flight Hot Air Balloon has gotten a completely new look.

0116Z0162DR

Apparently the ballon gets renovated every 4 years, and Matthieu Gobbi, General Manager for Aerophile (the group responsible for operating the balloon),  shed some light on the update; stating “the new balloon envelope was inspired by the springs and the element of water – it’s very coherent, as the balloon floats in the air, then lands on the water of Lake Buena Vista.”

0116Z0126DR

The experience of taking a flight up to 400 feet in the air remains unchanged.  Adult pricing is $20 per person and children (ages 3-8) are $15 each. Tip: visit before 10:00 a.m. and tickets are only $10 per person, regardless of age. The location opens daily at 8:30 a.m., weather permitting, and wait times are typically shorter earlier in the day.

Gone are the Disney Characters that we all knew and loved, and in is the new “look” of Disney Springs. What do you think of the balloon’s new look?

Music in Our Schools Tour

Disney had a very special surprise for students  from Wadworth High School in Ohio who attended a Disney Performing Arts workshop this past Friday at Saratoga Springs Resort as five-time CMA Vocal Group of the Year, Little Big Town showed up to bestow students with some showbiz words of wisdom.

Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild had the following to say about their surprise visit, “Music education is a right of every student. It helps them develop creativity and self-expression. For me, my music teacher in high school pushed me out on stage for the very first time to sing a solo and it changed my life.  So, I’m very grateful for music education and the power that it had on my career.”

The workshop is part of the Music in Our Schools Tour.  The event founded by the Give a Note Foundation (an affiliate of the National Association for Music Education) was created to celebrate amazing school music programs throughout the country through community concerts featuring popular artists.  The tour began in 2017 and is supported by Radio Disney.

Terry Dola, Disney Performing Arts Vice President of Group Sales and Marketing had the following to say about this exciting initiative, ” Every year the launch of the Music In Our Schools Tour at Walt Disney Resort grows bigger and more exciting. It was the thrill of a lifetime for these students to spend time with such an award-winning group such as Little Big Town.”

Walt Disney World hosts the event as part of its Disney Performing Arts program which aims to inspire, educate and promote creativity and the Arts through workshops, professional-style performances and other unique experiences that you can only get at Disney.
