Disney World Behind the Magic – What Disney does behind the scenes to help YOU have a better vacation
Walt Disney World, those two words are enough to make you smile-and that’s no accident! Amazingly, everything from the layout of the parks to the scents wafting through the air is designed to boost your happiness. Our friends at, Woman’s World Magazine, wrote an article on how you can incorporate that magical mojo into your life. We thought it was a good article so we wanted to share with you some other things Disney does behind the scenes to help you have a better and more magical vacation…
Sure, Disney World’s fairy-tale skyline invite you to look up-but what’s going on at ground level is just as interesting: The cement on Main Street is mixed with rubber-like material that makes it softer on visitors’ feet! And since sensory information is sent to your brain via your feet, the walkways are also designed to stimulate your imagination. From the rough, Old-West-inspired paths of Frontierland to the gem-studded lanes of Adventureland, each area of the park tells its own story from the bottom up!
Make it work for you by kicking off your shoes! Letting your feet feel a variety of textures-from soft carpeting to cool tile-is proven to de-stress your brain by “surprising” it with new sensations!
In 2013, “Limited Time Magic” at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort will surprise and delight you in fanciful and unexpected ways. New entertainment and imaginative events will pop up and then disappear – so take advantage of these opportunities while they last!
“Limited Time Magic” kicks off at the Walt Disney World Resort in Magic Kingdom® Park with the first ever “Bling in the New Year” dance party in Tomorrowland®. Guests will be able to watch live entertainment on Rockettower Plaza Stage, dance to great music and celebrate with some of their favorite Disney characters – all dressed in their New Year’s best. And, if Guests can’t stay up until midnight, there will be a New Year’s countdown every hour leading up to midnight. The celebration begins on Dec. 30, 2012 and runs through Jan.5, 2013.
At Disneyland Park, you can enjoy “A Salute to the Golden Horseshow Revue” – the renowned Frontierland® show enjoyed by Walt Disney himself. Guests can join Miss Lily and her Saloon Girls for a fun-filled show with plenty of family-friendly comedy, singing and dancing. Performances are Thursday through Monday from Jan. 10 – Feb. 4, 2013.
Plus, as part of “Limited Time Magic,” 2013 will be the “Year of the Ear” at Disney Parks. Every month, Disney Parks will release new ear hats and headware for Guests to add to their collection. January will start with the limited release of Disney Couture Ear Hats. And each month, there will be fun designs for you to discover.
Stay tuned to Chip and Co for additional “Limited Time Magic” information.

On January 7th, Disneyland’s Big Thunder Mountain is set to close for the better part of the year as it gets a new paint job, tracks and vehicles.
This is the third major refurb of a ride at Disneyland in as many years. The Big Thunder Mountain Railroad has been open in the Frontierland section since 1979. The ride is themed as a runaway train that speeds through the Old West and is a park favorite.
The overhaul does include new vehicles similar to what Disneyland did with Matterhorn‘s Bobsleds earlier this year. The new vehicles have received mixed review that the seats are cramped and provide little support or cushion.
A spokeswoman for the park said Big Thunder Mountain will get new trains, but they will probably resemble the existing trains, with no major changes to the seats.

I love traditions. I always related to Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof…TRADITION! I mean, if I do it one time and enjoy it, you can pretty much bet that I’ll be planning a return trip, at the same time the next year! I think that it is part of my genetic make up, as my entire family suffers from this “we gotta do that again this year” mentality. That is why I questioned my genes about three years ago, when my extended family decided to break with typical Thanksgiving traditions and serve seafood for Thanksgiving dinner. No turkey? No mac and cheese? No pumpkin pie? I remember fighting (or at least trying to fight) the look of total disgust as I passed around a steaming hot plate of what we call in the south, low country boil or Beaufort Stew (aka shrimp, potatoes, corn on the cob, and sausage). I’ve got nothing against this delicious meal, I mean, break it out in July and I am a happy girl, but on Thanksgiving? Really?
All that said, I have decided to abandon non-traditional holiday fare. Keep your shrimp. I’m stuffing my face with carbs, sugar, carbs, and turkey. All of this traditionalist got me to thinking,0″ what would I go for if I was at Disney during Thanksgiving or the holiday season?” I quickly started forming a list of restaurants that I knew would meet my traditional food item requirements. Apparently Disney has had the same thought (clearly, this is yet another sign that they should hire me as a Disney Imagineer). They have created a special holiday appropriate menu at several of our favorite restaurants (both in the parks and resorts). These restaurant sites offer a traditional Thanksgiving dinner on Thanksgiving day by reservation. They also offer Christmas and New Year’s eve/day meals. You can check out the details on their website!
Since we know that Thanksgiving day and other holidays have been taken care of by Disney, today, I wanted to share some turkey friendly spots throughout the parks that can quench your Thanksgiving tradition, a few days earlier. That’s right, today, we are looking at spots that will let you “get your turkey on,” all week! Hey, why not celebrate with a couple of feasts? I can promise you that Disney has just what you need to satisfy your tradition tooth (like your sweet tooth, only traditional). I know that everyone holds different traditions, so I hope you’ll bear with me here as I explore some of the typical, Thanksgiving traditions. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite spots!
