Apheta, the collectors assistant, may try to ensure you it’s all just a minor set back and to proceed with caution. Once the sun sets during Halloween time GOTG: Mission Breakout! will transform into GOTG: Monsters After Dark with a new song especially for the ride called “Monsters After Dark” created by the one and only Tyler Bates, the composer of the GOTG Films.

Disney Did You Know?!

Did you know,

1

Before Walt Disney chose Anaheim, he almost built his park on a 7 acre studio lot in burbank where the park was almost named “Walt Disney’s America.” Disneyland was built on a 160 acre orange grove, displacing  more than 12,000 orange trees. Jack and Bill Evans, the landscapers made up for it though by planting more than 40 species of flowers and 700 exotic trees that grow along the Jungle Cruise alone. The iconic Mickey-head topiary contains 10,000 flowers which are replanted 6 times a year!

Since dogs don’t typically look at the sun by keeping them inside away from the eclipse as well as shutting the blinds will keep them safe. If you are planning on watching the eclipse with your furry friend be sure you both are wearing protective glasses

WDW: FastPass+ Cheaters!

It’s crazy to think there are cheaters at WDW when it comes to the FP+ system because of Disney, but then again I’m not shocked about this either. In this post, I’ll be talking about the “in-park validation” along with consequences if caught cheating, and the third party guided tours.

11813298_958351714216614_4040428913830536595_n.jpg

The “in-park validation” means validation of the park admission ticket. Until just recently there has been a loophole with the FP+ systems kiosk. The loophole with the FP+ system kiosk allowed bookings with expired cards or by using the second ticket on their account to book another set of FP+ for the day. Tickets not used to for park admission could get you a valid FP+ reservation. Similar loopholes were found with the cast member passes where 3+ guest passes which allow friends and family entry to the parks with a limited restriction on the FP+ booking without redeeming admission.

marceline-tour_998The third party guest tours where people find and book tours through the many Disney fan sited, craigslist and more. The tours guarantee FP+ usage for all the attractions for their paying clients. What this means that the employees of these third party tours are at the parks during rope drop with handfuls of expired tickets and cards to book all the major attractions at the kiosks for their clienteles.

fastpassplusThis becomes a problem for the thousands of guests who are playing by the rules and paying admission for that day and now can’t find anything they want to do available during their stay. So Disney has decided to do the in-park validation, which will check to ensure that guests are using an active ticket for admission before redeeming an FP+. The consequences if guests are caught cheating, a cast member can deny entry, and if found with multiple attempts you will be locked out of the MyDisneyExperience accounts so you can’t utilize the FP+ booking option. If the behavior were deemed, non-abusive guest relations would be able to unlock the account.

 

 

Unknown-1The situation reminds me with the whole thing about the Disability passes when it was a thing to abuse them and now they are impossible to get to the point of nonexistence. I think what Disney is doing is pretty fair in my opinion because they could take it to a bigger extreme and banned you from the park but they’re not. What are your thoughts on this topic? Is it fair? Or no? Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Disness: Pinocchio!

Pinocchio is the second animated film released by Disney in 1940. It’s a story about a living puppet who has to prove himself worthy to become a real boy with the help of his conscience, name Jiminy Cricket. The film is 1 hour and 28 minutes long and based off of the Italian book The Adventures of Pinocchio written by Carlo Collodi in 1883.

md16816927669For people to root for Pinocchio, they drew him as a real boy and added the nuts and bolts to make him a puppet. Disney also changed up the story a bit but also stayed true to the book. For instance, there was a cricket in the original story, but Pinocchio smooshed him with a hammer, and the cricket returned as a ghost whereas in Disney’s version Jiminy is Pinocchio’s conscience and doesn’t get smooshed by a hammer.

giphyWhen I think of Pinocchio, I think two things; the art and of course the song “When You Wish Upon A Star.” When I watch the movie, you can see a lot of small detail that makes Pinocchio stand out from the others, for example when you are watching all the cuckoo clocks for Geppetto’s shop are based on working models built as guides for the animators. Not only that but if you look to the left of the screen when the spotlight hits Jiminy as he is singing ‘When You Wish Upon A Star” you can see two books behind him titled: Alice in Wonderland (1951) and Peter Pan (1953).

4AcN2fcIt was the first animated movie EVER to win an Academy Award in a competitive category. Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs won an Honorary Academy for being the first ever animated film. Pinocchio was also the first ever film (animated or not) to win an Academy Award for best Score and best Song; this wouldn’t happen again until 1964 with Mary Poppins.

51pMZfQET3L._SY445_Unfortunately, the movie didn’t succeed in its initial theatric run due to many different war efforts going on in Europe and Asia, but it made its money back in 1945 when it was re-released. Pinocchio was the first Disney film to release on DVD, plus this Disney classic was re-released several times in theater from the initially released date to 1992.

Cleo-and-Figaro-Pinocchio-1Pinocchio is one of my favorite because I love the Blue Fairy, Figaro and of course Cleo. The movie implanted in my brain to always let my conscience be my guide which I use in everyday life. What is your favorite thing about this Disney classic? Let me know in the comments below!
