Haunted Mansion children's Book

A new Haunted Mansion Children’s Book is heading to Disney Parks this summer. This book is part of a new series from Disney Publishing called “Disney Parks Presents.”

haunted mansion childrens book 2

The Haunted Mansion is not only a personal favorite of mine, but a pop culture phenomena. Disney Addicts from around the world have fallen in love with the classic attraction.  On the inside cover of this book, readers will even find a CD containing a uniquely created 5-minute and 32-second musical tour through the attraction. The track includes the beloved classic “Grim Grinning Ghosts” song, that is synonymous with the ride. The iconic dong by Buddy Baker and Xavier Atencio is what inspired the book.

haunted mansion childrens book

Illustrations for the 32 page book were created by James Gilleard, an artist from London, England. Eric said the art department loved his “retro, cool vibe” that complemented the overall silly and spooky tone of the book. If you check out some of the above images, you will even see the Hatbox Ghost!

Future “Disney Parks Presents” books will feature attractions such as Pirates of the Caribbean and the world famous Jungle Cruise, each with its own unique art style. I wonder if we could see a Space Mountain Book in the future, I think that would be out of this world!

You can look for “Disney Parks Presents: The Haunted Mansion” in select merchandise locations this summer at Disney Parks or at other favorite retailers nationwide. If you can’t wait you can also pre-order it on Amazon now!

The Amateurs book cover (1)

I was lucky enough to receive of copy of this novel via Disney Publishing and let me tell you it did not disappoint! If you’re a fan of Sara Shepard’s Pretty Little Liars series or her Lying Game series you will love this book. This book reminds me more of The Lying Game plot wise with the gossipy feel of a Pretty Little Liars novel. The novel focuses on five teens Seneca, Aerin, Brett, Maddy and Maddy’s younger stepsister who isn’t a main player but feels like it thanks to Sara’s incredible writing. These five teens come from completely different backgrounds but have one thing in common their love of solving mysteries. The biggest mystery of all the death of Aerin’s sister is right under their noses and this story captures their fight to find the truth about what happened to Helena.

The first thing that struck me about this novel is that it’s not for the faint of heart. This novel focuses on dark subject matter and death… lots of death, but if you’re a Sara Shepard fan you would expect nothing else! I recommend the book for high school age kids and older like myself or anyone who enjoys a captivating mystery. The book itself isn’t an incredibly long read but it is an incredibly interesting one. I am a fan of mysteries and always have been but I think if you’re new to the genre this might be a great book to pick up to try it out. The book is fast paced and interesting enough to keep new readers hooked.

As far as the plot I can’t say much as I am sworn to secrecy (not really but I don’t want to spoil it for readers) All I can say is the final five pages of this book will leave you reeling, as in oh my god how did I not see all this coming reeling and switching back to pages to see where you missed the obvious. If you’re like me and you love to try and figure out mysteries before you finish the book don’t even try you’ll never guess the surprise twist, but once you read it you won’t be able to contain your excitement for the next novel in the series as it sets up for an interesting second book. Everything is not what it seems in The Amateurs and the truth is way closer and more twisted than you could ever imagine.

Overall I give this novel a resounding A+ because it kept me on my toes the whole way through.

Print and eBook formats of The Amateurs are available for pre-order wherever books are sold.

Finding Dory” had a stellar opening last weekend at the box office, having brought in $135 million domestically. These numbers made the film rank as the highest grossing opening weekend of an animated film ever, as well as the second highest June opening of any movie. With it’s second weekend now beginning to wrap up, it is still going strong.

So far during its second weekend in theaters, “Finding Dory” has already brought in $75 million, making it the #1 movie of the weekend box office. It even topped Fox’s opening of “Independence Day: Resurgence” this weekend, which made $43 million.  These box office numbers have made “Finding Dory” the seventh highest second-weekend ever for a film! Overall, “Dory” has brought in   $287,213,059 worldwide.

Comparatively, “Frozen”, the highest grossing animated film of all time made $93,933,226 worldwide by its second weekend. With “Finding Dory” having almost made triple this amount, could it replace the title “Frozen” currently holds?

Haven’t seen “Finding Dory” yet? You can check out our official spoiler-free review here.

If you’re looking for a great way to cool off this summer at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, then why not take a stroll through the air-conditioned One Man’s Dream? While you’re there, you’ll even have the chance to view the new Pete’s Dragon trailer, starting July 1st.

If you’re on the west coast you can catch the 10-minute trailer at Sunset Showcase theater in Hollywood Land at Disney California Adventure instead.

Disney has this to say about their upcoming film, being released on August 12th:

In “Pete’s Dragon,” old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children for years with his tales of the fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard), who works as a forest ranger, these stories are little more than tall tales…until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley). Pete is a mysterious 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant, green dragon named Elliot. And from Pete’s descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham’s stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year- old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

Pete’s dragon will open in theaters on August 12th, 2016. Will you be going to see it?

Earlier this year, “Indiana Jones 5” was announced by Disney, coming in 2019. Harrison Ford will of course be returning to play Indiana Jones, with Stephen Spielberg directing once again.

Recently Spielberg announced, “The one thing I will tell you is I’m not killing off Harrison at the end of it.” This caused a lot of buzz that this was a small hint towards more Indiana Jones movies, past the fifth.

This rumor received some more confirmation by Disney CEO Bob Iger, who in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter said that they are “focused on a reboot, or a continuum and then a reboot of some sort,” continuing on, “Well, we’ll bring him back, then we have to figure out what comes next.”

When asked in the interview straight out if he thought there would be more Indiana Jones films, Iger confirmed, “Yes, I do. I don’t think it reaches the scale of the universe of Star Wars, but I see making more. It won’t be just a one-off.”

This is very exciting news! It will be interesting to see if there could possibly be Indiana Jones stories, or anthology movies, as Star Wars is beginning to do with December’s release of “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story,” as well as with the upcoming young Han Solo movie. “Indiana Jones 5” will be released July 19, 2019.

Darren Kramer who is with the Winnipeg Jets organization and plays for the American Hockey League’s Manitoba Moose, was arrested Tuesday at Walt Disney World. The 25-year-old was arrested and charged with battery of a law enforcement officer, grand theft and resisting arrest without violence.

According to an Orange County Police Report the situation took place at 1:16am on Tuesday where the police saw a man who identified himself by the name “Corbin” walking through Disney Springs holding a large display flag and bowling pins. They asked Corbin to return the flag to Splitsville, the bowling alley in Disney Springs. Corbin claims Splitsville gave him the pins as a gift for a high score, a representative from Splitsville states they were stolen.

There was a standoff with Corbin where officers were in fear of being struck with the pins, then Corbin took off on foot running past Raglan Road and the Lego Store. This is where Darren Kramer entered screaming for Corbin to run! Kramer then started running towards the officers interfering with their attempt to catch Corbin.

In an attempt to find out the true identity of Corbin they cuffed Kramer, who fought with the officers when they tried to cuff him. Kramer then head butted the police officer and they both fell to the ground, once up the officer threaten to fire at Kramer with his taser, that is when Kramer gave up resisting.

Police say Kramer has slurred speech and smelled of alcohol.

The official police report states Kramer was transported to the Orange County Jail without incident.

Kramer was the most penalized player of the year in the Alberta junior league, Western Canada Hockey League and the AHL.

The fence at Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort is now complete. The netting was installed in the last day to block access to the water. Last week Disney added new signage around the beaches.

Guests are reporting that Sea Racers are available to rent starting today.

Beach access is also open but only during daylight hours.

According Tikiman’s Unofficial Polynesian Resort Page beach access will be from one hour after sunrise to one hour before sunset. No access to the beach outside of those times. This will be the rule for the foreseeable future.

Work has begun adding fences to many of the other Walt Disney World Resorts.

We do not have an official finish date.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is the first Star Wars anthology film, and up until this week just a teaser trailer has been released. In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weeklynewly revealed character pictures, descriptions, and plot details are featured. And in additional big news that has lots of fans talking, written right across the cover “Darth Vader is Back!”

EW

The plot, as described by Entertainment Weekly, takes place right before the events of “Star Wars: A New Hope”:

“Before Luke fired the blast that detonated the Death Star, before Leia launched R2-D2 to a remote desert world with secret plans for that battle station, someone had to locate and steal those schematics.

Turns out, it was a team effort.

In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, we bring you an inside look at Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which explores just how the Rebellion came to possess the information that revealed the fatal flaw in the Empire’s super weapon. It’s a battlefield heist that fans have been imagining for nearly 40 years, described in the opening crawl of 1977’s original Star Wars, with little details scattered throughout.”

Felicity Jones plays main character Jyn Erso, who has been living on her since she was 15. She has a rough past, but is desired by the Rebel Alliance due to her fighting skills and knowledge of the Galactic Empire.

Diego Luna portrays Captain Cassian Andor, who is working to help train Erso as a new, rough-around-the-edges Rebel Alliance recruit. Kiri Hart, chief of story development at Lucasfilm describes: “He conveys a fair amount of experience and the reality of what it’s like to do thisevery day, to try to figure out how to resist the Empire effectively and intelligently.”
846515888554100-600x600
Donnie Yen plays the devoted ally to the Rebel Alliance Cirrut Imwe. Although blind, he is still a great warrior. Lucasfilm president and “Rogue One” producer Kathleen Kennedy said about this unique character: “Chirrut falls into the category of being a warrior monk.He very much still believes in everything the Jedi were about.”
dg044484152999630-600x600
The character Baze Malbus, played by actor Jiang Wen, is a devoted friend of Chirrut who is very protective of him. Kennedy said, “He understands Chirrut’s spiritual centeredness, but he doesn’t necessarily support it.”
864531289888000-600x600
Riz Ahmed plays the Rebel Alliance’s hot-headed lead pilot Bodhi Rook. Although a bit short tempered, but has excellent technical skills when it comes to piloting.
dg4515572999630-600x600
Alan Tudyk has been in many Disney films as of late (Duke Weaselton in “Zootopia”, Duke of Weselton in “Frozen”, to name a few). Tudyk will make another return as character K-2SO, a droid in which director Gareth Edwards described as “the antithesis of C-3PO,” and “Kaytoo is a little bit like Chewbacca’s personality in a droid’s body.”
845882470000-600x600
Actor Mads Mikkelsen plays Galen Erso, the estranged father of Jones’ character Jyn Erso. As of now, the appearance of the character as well as why he has been separated from Jyn remains under wraps by Lucasfilm. Hart described Galen: “He’s one of those people that has insight into you know specific aspects of just how the universe works.”
46488226693000-600x600
Ben Mendelson plays Director Orson Krennic, a villain who commands a squad of Deathtroopers set out to destroy the Rebel uprising. Krennic wants to be in Emperor Palpatine’s graces, even if it means needing to sabotage Darth Vader to move above him in the ranks.
46813520000-600x600
Actor Forest Whitaker plays Saw Gerrera, a character fans have seen on “The Clone Wars”. He has a rich history with Vader, having fought alongside him when he was Jedi Anakin Skywalker.
We will be sure to be on the lookout for the latest “Rogue One” news. In case you missed it, you can check out the latest trailer below:

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” comes to theaters December 16, 2016.

Uber has become extremely popular in the Walt Disney World area and now they are trying a new way to make things more convenient for its customers.

Currently these changes are only at Magic Kingdom:

When you order a ride from the Magic Kingdom on the Uber app your request goes to the driver who has waited the longest inside a zone around the transportation and ticket center. You will then get picked up in the passenger drop-off and pickup area.

Whereas the process used to be once a ride was requested you would get the driver closest to you.

The new system is called “first in / first out,” and it began last month. The switch was made to reduce confusion and make sure drop offs and pickups are done in a safe environment. The change will also help optimize driver earnings.

If this works out at the Magic Kingdom they will start fanning out to the rest of the theme parks in Walt Disney World.

An exciting new series of Lego Frozen animated shorts and books will be coming our way!

Coming in July will be the kick off of a Lego Frozen book series with original stories, the first being “Disney Frozen Northern Lights: Journey to the Lights.” The story will be about Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven journeying to restore the glimmer of the Northern Lights.

legofrozen2

In conjunction with the collection of books, there will be an animated series of Lego Frozen shorts that are the books’ stories come to life. And the best part? All of the original cast will be voicing the roles. Andrew Sugerman from Disney Publishing Worldwide had this to say on the project:

“Natural phenomenon meets cultural phenomenon in this all-new story, Frozen Northern Lights. We’re excited to share this new adventure and offer fans great new ways to connect with their favorite characters thanks to a host of related books, digital games and activities.”

Walt Disney Animation Studio’s 2013 hit film “Frozen” is the highest grossing animated film of all time, and its fandom is far from dying down. “Frozen” is continuously being re-imagined in many forms, with an upcoming 2018 Broadway musical in development, the “Frozen” stage show having recently opened at Disney California Adventure’s Hyperion Theater, and the Frozen Ever After Ride‘s debut today at Epcot.

Josh Gad is more than excited to be returning as Olaf for the Lego Frozen animated shorts, you can check out what he has to say on the project in the video below:

“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures” is coming to Disney XD June 20th at 10am! A couple of weeks ago, I was able to attend a screening of the first episode at the Disney Channel Building. It was not only funny, but also had emotional parts too, making for excellent story telling and enjoyable for kids and adults. You can check out our official review of the series here.

Bill Motz & Bob Roth

 

At the conference I was able to get lots of in-depth scoops on “The Freemaker Adventures” from the show’s writers/producers  Bill Motz & Bob Roth. Roth and Motz talked about how they have a close relationship with Lucasfilm, and work with them to verify facts within the Star Wars universe. Not only that, but they also work with Lucasfilm to make sure the stories they write for “The Freemaker Adventures” aren’t too similar to stories they have planned out for future Star Wars films (which they said has almost happened on occasion).

Motz and Roth helped make the creative decision to have the series set between the events of “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi” for a few reasons. One being that they wanted a large character pool available to use, and wanted to be able to feature Darth Vader. Also, since the Freemaker family are creative people who are always building their own starships out of broken down starships, they figured at that point in time the family would have the most leftover battle rubble available to them.

It was evident that they are both die-hard Star Wars fans, putting in the same amount of passion for the Lego Star Wars series that they have for the actual Star Wars films. They really wanted to stay true to the feel of Star Wars, so rather than this series having parody-type humor, they kept with the same type of humor from the original Star Wars trilogy, mixed with the high stakes of a mature TV show. To give the complete Star Wars fan experience, they even had an 83-piece live orchestra do the score for the show, as well as incorporate John William’s classic score.

Matthew Wood (Roger)

Matthew Wood plays the battle droid Roger, who lives with the Freemaker family. Wood has long worked on Star Wars films with sound effects, and even was a part of establishing the gawky walk that battle droids have. Wood was excited to get to play a battle droid, since they normally get destroyed pretty quickly, he found the opportunity interesting to get to play a droid that we get to learn more about that is existing post-Clone Wars time.

Vanessa Lengies speaking about her character Kordi Freemaker

Actress Vanessa Lengies plays Kordi Freemaker, the oldest of the Freemaker siblings. In true Star Wars fashion, she said up until casting was near finished for the series the show was top secret. Her audition sides had no references to Star Wars, but even before knowing the full details of the project she said she connected with the character. She loved that Kordi is a strong, spunky female character that is also well versed in mechanics, and is also protective of her two younger brothers.

IMG_1727

Eugene Byrd voices middle-sibling Zander Freemaker. He too wasn’t told what he was auditioning for, but he said being a huge fan, he just knew from the language of the script that it was Star Wars related. Once he got the official call that he got the part and was told it was a Lego Star Wars TV show, he said it was the most exciting moment of his career.

Nicholas Cantu (Rowan Freemaker)

Nicholas Cantu (Rowan Freemaker)

Newcomer Nicholas Cantu plays the 12-year-old main character and youngest Freemaker Rowan. In speaking about the series, Cantu’s passion and energy shown through, much like the character he plays. He was fully up to play this role, as he described himself as having a “naturally eccentric personality” and enjoys having pretend light saber fights in his spare time.

Something both the producers and the actors spoke about was how quickly they all became a family behind the scenes. They would often stay and watch each other do their voice overs, and give each other support along the way during the journey to create “The Freemaker Adventures”. They said it was a unique working experience unlike anything else they’ve ever done, and that them feeling like a family made the Freemaker family all the more real.

Walt Disney World has released vacation packages and pricing for 2017 travel dates. Reservations can be made up to 499 days in advance so guests wishing to travel in November and December will still need to wait a bit longer before they’re able to book.

Consider booking your next Disney vacation with a Disney Travel Agent that specializes in Disney travel. It costs the same whether you choose to book on your own or through an Authorized Disney Vacation Planner such as MickeyTravels. In addition to first-hand knowledge of the Disney Parks, guests will enjoy the following FREE planning services:

Frozen Pre-Show Plus Lunch Package 

Prepare your palette for a royal 3-course lunch and pre-show gathering before the performance.

Your jaunt begins with a glamorous visit to Hollywood’s Golden Age, where you’ll indulge in a delicious 3-course meal in the dining room of the Carthay Circle Restaurant—an iconic eatery modeled after the theater where Walt Disney’s animated classic, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs , debuted in 1937.

Once seated, whet your appetite with a stunning starter duo of a soup and salad. Then, choose from 4 main dishes such as chilled red shrimp with coconut-lime mousse, avocado and mango vinaigrette or the grilled angus tri tip with Point Reyes blue cheese risotto, spinach and wild mushrooms. A special kids menu includes a soup or salad and a splendid selection of Mickey Check Meals like mini crispy tacos and a soba noodle bowl.

Everyone—big or small—should save room for something sweet, as Olaf’s Summer Dream Vacation is a delightful dessert.

When this culinary journey comes to a close, your next experience will soon be underway. Approximately 1.5 hours before the performance, you’ll check in at Stage 17 for a special pre-show gathering featuring Frozen-themed magical moments and an assortment of chilled offerings. Then, when this breezy, magical reception winds down, you’ll be invited to the theater and seated in a reserved area for your viewing of the spectacular theatrical production of Frozen – Live at the Hyperion.

Price: $99 per adult and $79 per child (ages 3 to 9), plus tax and gratuity

Reservations: Book online or call Disney Dining at (714) 781-DINE (3463) between the hours of 8:00 AM and 9:00 PM daily. Guests must be 18 years of age or have parent or guardian permission to call.

Frozen Signature Dining and Behind-the-Scenes Package

Embark on the ultimate VIP adventure featuring a pre-show gathering, priority seating, guided backstage tour and a sumptuous 4-course meal!

Your royal experience kicks off with a fun-filled pre-show gathering* at Stage 17, which has been transformed into a charming castle courtyard within the wintery world of Arendelle. During this celebration, you can sip on refreshments, enjoy shave ice, snap photos with Frozen-themed backdrops, and more!

Next, you’ll glide over to the Hyperion Theater, slip into your priority seat and take in the spectacular new theatrical production inspired by Frozen.

Once this mesmerizing musical comes to an end, you’ll have the opportunity to step behind the curtain for a glimpse of the show’s elaborately designed costumes, as well as get your photo taken on the performance stage.

Then, for the ice-ing on this sweet venture, anticipate a 4-course prix fixe dinner to remember at the elegant Carthay Circle Restaurant. As you sit, relax and absorb the retro-glam ambience, you can take blissful bites of fine fare including the braised short rib ravioli with morel mushrooms and English pea coulis and a showstopping dessert—Olaf’s Summer Dream Vacation.
