There’s few genres that are nearly as cool as the Western genre, and the Martial Arts genre. Both have been mainstays in cinema for quite some time, for good reason, because they both house some of the greatest films of all time. So it’s no surprise that combining the genres offered something fun and exciting. Mixed with a fish out of water comedy tale, ‘Shanghai Noon’, as well as it’s sequel, ‘Shanghai Knights’, come together as two of the most entertaining films of the early 2000′s. These two films were in constant rotation back when they were on DVD, but ever since blu-ray took off, I’ve been hoping that these two would eventually get a release. They seem like prime candidates for the format, with their fun action scenes in all the films, as well as some beautiful shots of the American frontier, the victorian London setting, and awesome costumes. While it was a long wait, Walt Disney Pictures has finally released the two films in a double feature pack, much to my delight, and probably to the joys of many Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson fans as well.
Hi ya everybody! It’s your friend Anonymouse here to share the latest Disney gossip with you!
Today, I have some exciting news to share with you about the Disney Vacation Club. The Disney Vacation Club will be expanding to include Disney’s Polynesian Resort! Construction on the Disney Vacation Club Villas at Disney’s Polynesian Resort is expected to begin by the end of the year. It may be completed by 2017, but no one seems to know for sure! Disney Vacation Club will be adding 20 bungalows on the beach or over the water at Disney’s Polynesian Resort!
Here is the word from the World Famous Tikiman.
Fear not wine conissouers – Walt Disney World has NOT forgotten about you! It may be a Theme Park with ample child and family friendly activities and restaurants, but there is plenty for us adults to enjoy too!
So if you find that you’re in the mood for a glass or two of vino after a long day of touring the Parks, then I suggest you head to these spots:
Magic Kingdom – Up until just recently, the Magic Kingdom was a “dry” park that didn’t serve any alcohol at all, but with the addition of the Be Our Guest restaurant at the New Fantasyland came a french inspired menu that included cornish game hen, pork chops, and ratatouillie. Along with that menu came a drink menu that includes some truly delicious red and white wines, as well as some classic French beers.
There are some great drink options on the menu, and since it’s a new (popular!) restaurant, you will definitely want to make an ADR to wine and dine here!
We at Chip and Co are your go to Walt Disney World Planning Tips, but we’re more than just Walt Disney World. We are Disneyland, Disney Aulani, and beyond. Stop your searching the web and stick with us for all your Disney Needs. Here and now we’re giving you our Disneyland Pre-Planning Tips.
You may recall we went over some checklist items for a Disneyland Vacation earlier this year. Now we need to choose your Disneyland Airport.
What Airports are there: Disneyland is serviced by many airports. The main three are Long Beach (LGB), Santa Ana (SNA) and Los Angeles (LAX), CA. My personal favorite is Long Beach. It’s a great little airport that is easy to get in and out of. Plus the old school stair ramp exit off your plane is super cool. You could also fly into Burbank, Ontario or even San Diego if you wish.
What joy spring brings! Flowers bloom, empty forests refill with abundant green foliage, forest animals make friends with random princesses…wait a minute…okay so maybe that last one was a stretch (unless you are 100% princess like me. Accept it. Embrace it.) Any rate, with all of these spring things comes the inevitable thunderstorm.
Now, I know that there are loads of articles all over the internet on what to do at Disney in the event of rain; I even wrote one, appropriately titled It’s Raining…Not Pouring! Making the Most of the Parks in the Rain! In this article I’ll give suggestions for making the most of the parks when it rains. Among my suggestions, head for indoor attractions, be prepared with ponchos, and last but not least brave it. Brave it? That is a bold statement, one that should be followed up by some caution, granted, most of us have a generous portion of common sense! Now, I will give my self credit on this article because I did say that if you hear thunder, you should head for safe cover. But recently I watched a news show with a segment on lightning safety and I have to say that I am so glad I watched!
I’ve never been one to play around with lightning! When I was little, my mother would make us shut everything off, we weren’t allowed to stand near windows, we couldn’t use the telephone, we couldn’t go anywhere near water (like even the toilet). Now that I’m grown, I’ve relaxed a lot; pretty much the only of those rules I keep is to get indoors to safety. I thought that all my Mom’s precautions were preposterous. But friends, thanks to some time watching the tube whilst laying on my belly waiting for an allergy panel to react, I got some eye opening information! I was shocked to learn just how dangerous lightning is! So, what does this have to do with Disney? A lot!
Here are some tips for playing it safe in the parks: lightning safety at Disney World.
