This is part of a series of blogs and coordinating DIS Unplugged: Disneyland Edition podcast segments focusing on the off-property establishments near the Disneyland Resort collectively known as Good Neighbor Hotels. This time I take a look at the Best Western Plus Stovall’s Inn located at 1110 West Katella Avenue. I talk in detail about [...]
Post by Jeff Alves My wife Val & I just moved to Florida and we had our favorite sister-in-law (Tracy) visiting to help with our interior decorating choices. Tracy enjoys gardening so we thought it would be nice to repay her by booking a special tour for the three of us. The Epcot International Flower [...]
I have confirmed, from a confidential and normally reliable source, that today, April 1, 2014, a Disney Vacation Club (DVC) owner will be filing a class action lawsuit against Walt Disney World. The gist of the lawsuit will be to demand Disney allot five FastPass+ experiences per day to all DVC members.
As part of the My Magic+ testing, Walt Disney World has starting selling MagicBands to offsite day guests. Day guests are those guests who are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort.
You’re in luck! Despite the pesky rain outside that won’t seem to quit, you’re at one of the best places for a rainy day theme park experience – Universal Orlando, a place where the majority of the attractions are covered or are in buildings.

It featured a 26-foot tall giant Genie balloon, dozens [...]
I’ll admit it; I sometimes catch myself in a state of day dreaming. Looking at a wall, but only seeing my favorite theme park attractions, brightly colored paint, images of 3 circles connected to each other, and even the hot Florida sun melting my favorite theme park treat. However, during my daydream it’s different. I’m [...]
Back in 2004, Disney bought the Muppets from Jim Henson leaving many fans with high expectations for the future. Previously in the 80′s, Disney was close to purchasing the Muppets, but after Jim Henson passed away in 1990, the future of the Muppets was put in jeopardy. Luckily, Disney didn’t give up completely. MuppetVision 3D [...]
The Muppets are back in theaters after three years! And they fully admit “the sequel’s never quite as good.” 1. You’ll find out that a mole can make your best friends completely unrecognizable. 2.
