T.G.I.F. Pic Of The Week – Pumpkin Carving With A Disney Flair!

TGIF FIsney Pumpkins

It’s almost fall, which means the candy, décor and costumes are out in stores and have got me thinking about how to celebrate Halloween! There’s always pumpkin carving of course, and while I do love the classic triangle eyes and nose with the two-tooth smile, why not branch out and try something different this year? There are plenty of Disney choices to pick from when it comes time to slice and dice up your Jack-O-Lantern:

Is “Star Wars Land” Coming To Disneyland?

FILE: Disney To Buy Lucasfilm; Announces Star Wars Episode VII

Now that Disney owns the rights to Star Wars and Lucas Film, they are making a 7th movie, and many are wondering if they are planning to do even more with Star Wars – like possibly build a whole Land themed after the legendary films?

In an online survey that was sent in late March to Disney Annual Passholders and other Disney enthusiasts, one of the questions read “How interested would you be in visiting a Star Wars themed land at the Disneyland Resort?”

Unfortunately that’s as far as the news has gone so far – we can only speculate at this time what they might do with the results from that survey, but hopefully people are in favor of the idea, and I know that personally my husband and I would be ALL FOR IT – we love Star Tours, and a Star Wars Land would be a perfect addition to Disneyland (and maybe someday Disney World in Florida too? One can dream….)

Walt Disney World is a great place for those of all ages to visit – and while you’re there, you might as well dress the part, right?

Check out some of these great T-shirts available in WDW:

We found this one in the gift shop outside of the Star Tours ride (one of my husband’s favorites!)

As a huge Winnie The Pooh fan, this one made me laugh!

Yes, that is four adults wearing matching T-Shirts, and no, we don’t care how silly that might look :)

Favorite Disney Rides – Star Tours

 
Location -  Star Tours is located in Disney’s Hollowood Studios Theme Park, and you really can’t miss it – just look for the giant AT-AT and you’ll have found this Star Wars themed simulator ride
 
What it’s Like – Take a journey to a galaxy far far away as you board this flight/motion simulator. The vehicle may not physically be moving along a track, but the technology and special effects definitely make you feel like you are sprinting at light speed as you try and escape from Darth Vader and make it back home safely! The ride itself looks pretty much like a movie theater, only smaller, and with seat belts. You strap in, and blast off into space! There are over 50 different versions of the ride, so chances are good you will get a different experience each time you board the space vehicle
 
Why I Love It – Truth be told, this is really not one of MY favorites – its really my husband who loves this one. He loves that it really follows the movies, and that it’s creative and immersive – you really feel like you’re a part of the ride. I definitely agree with him, this ride is a LOT of fun, which is why I don’t mind riding it a few times in a row! Oh, and they recently redid the ride last year, and it’s now in 3D, which means better, more realistic effects, and it also means super awesome 3D glasses!

Happy Star Wars Weekends!

This is the first of several weekends where star wars fans can immerse themselves in the movies at Walt Disney Worlds Hollywood Studios, which will host special events every weekend through June 10th.

What is there to do, you wonder? well there are plenty of character meet and greet opportunities (all six movies are represented!) and there is a daily parade, the jedi training academy, activities for kids, celebrity appearances, special merchandise (you can even create your own light sabre or droid!) and of course there is always the ever amazing Star Tours attraction to ride over and over again! I wonder how long the wait is for this one during this event…. I’m guessing pretty long!!

The hardcore fans even dress up for the event, which I am sure makes for some good people watching!

Oh, and there are some amazing looking snacks to be had as well (thanks to disneyfoodblog.com for the insight on these awesome looking treats!). Personally I like the looks of that cupcake, something tells me that biting into chocolate Darths head would be quite satisfying!!

My husband would LOVE to visit Disney during this event, he loves Star Wars and we always end up riding Star Tours like four or five times, and last time he got an awesome Darth Vader shirt to commemorate the fun times we has on his favorite ride. Something tells me we will be attending sometime in the near future….hmm, I better keep an eye out for a gold bikini….

And may the force be with you!
