‘Disney’s Walk Around the World’ Bricks to be Retired as Transformation of Arrival Experience Continues at Magic Kingdom Park

As many readers know, exciting improvements are being made to how you come and go at all four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. This includes reconfiguring walkways, and tram loading and unloading zones and more. We’re also enhancing security by adding more bag screening stations, metal detectors and other measures to aid in the screening of guests.

As work continues to transform the arrival experience, the bricks from “Disney’s Walk Around the World” near Magic Kingdom Park and the Transportation and Ticket Center will begin to be retired in the coming months. These bricks were sold with the commitment that they would be displayed until 2011. Since the bricks were not designed to be removed individually, they will not be available to take home. Instead, guests who sponsored a brick may purchase a commemorative version between now and Aug. 31, 2019, or while supplies last.

If you sponsored a brick and would like to get a souvenir version, here’s what to do:

If visiting in person:

  • Stop by City Hall at Magic Kingdom Park or Guest Relations at Disney Springs to verify your previous brick by sharing the name and hometown of the Guest who sponsored it.
  • After verification, you will be given a one-time use voucher to present by, or before Aug. 31, 2019, at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. (at Magic Kingdom Park – separate theme park admission required) or the Marketplace Co-Op (at Disney Springs), enabling you to purchase one commemorative 6” brick at a special price of $10 (plus tax).

If needing to contact us virtually:

  • Email guest.services@disneyworld.com or call 407-828-2701 with the name and hometown of the guest who sponsored the brick.
  • After verification, you will be provided a code to use by, or before Aug. 31, 2019, on shopDisney.com to purchase one commemorative 6” brick at a special price of $10 (plus tax and shipping) starting this spring. Please note, this code is for one-time use and will only be valid on shopDisney.com and may not be redeemed in person or at any other location. (Limit one voucher or code per verified guest.)

For Guests who did not participate in the original “Disney’s Walk Around the World” program but would like to purchase a personalized brick, souvenir bricks are available to customize and purchase starting at $29.99 (plus tax and optional shipping). These are on sale now at Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. at Magic Kingdom Park (separate theme park admission required to enter) or the Marketplace Co-Op (at Disney Springs), or later on shopDisney.com starting this spring.

Keep checking the Disney Parks Blog for more updates on work to improve your arrival experiences at our Walt Disney World Resort theme parks.

Rafiki’s Planet Watch Reopens this Summer at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Like many of you, I have a soft spot in my heart for Rafiki’s Planet Watch at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. So, I’m delighted to announce that Rafiki’s Planet Watch, the Affection Section and the Wildlife Express will fully reopen this summer. The area will include a few new enhancements and join the celebration of all things “The Lion King.” 

Rafiki’s Planet Watch will still include the animal encounters our guests love, as well as new experiences that draw from Disney’s rich heritage of wildlife animation, featuring a celebration of “The Lion King.” We cherish this special place where our guests and cast members can connect to the magic of nature and see the importance Disney places on animal care and conservation in our parks and around the world.

In the spirit of taking a page from ”The Lion King,” Hakuna Matata! We’ll share more updates soon.

‘Awesome Planet’ Film at Epcot One of Several New On-Screen Experiences Coming to Park

One of the central and incomparable strengths of Disney—cinematic excellence—is coming to The Land pavilion at Epcot, and its subject is as wide as the great, big, wonderful world around us.

“Awesome Planet,” an on-screen exploration of the realm we call home, showcases the spectacular beauty, diversity and dynamic story of our earth with all the grandeur guests have come to expect. 

This new film – together with the new Circle-Vision film previously announced for the China pavilion, updates to the film at the Canada pavilion, and the “Beauty and the Beast” Sing-Along that is coming to France – hints at the scope of the coming transformation of this amazing park. The new films herald a bold new era for a theme park that is distinctly Disney in its view of the earth, its lands and its people.

We’re aware, of course, that each time we touch Epcot, we are touching the setting for millions of precious family memories. So, we are very careful stewards of this park.  

“Beauty and the Beast” Sing-Along will rotate, for instance, with “Impressions de France,” which retains its place in Guinness World Records as the longest-running daily screened film in the world.

With spectacular nature photography, immersive in-theater effects, and space sequences created by none other than Industrial Light & Magic (which provided the cinematic foundation for the Star Wars franchise), “Awesome Planet” will stir Epcot guests and deliver an environmental message that will resonate far beyond its final scenes.

Look for more news soon on the transformation of Epcot. We’re looking forward to welcoming the world in a whole new way!

Disney’s Hollywood Studios Parking Lot Adds More ‘Character’

The Disney’s Hollywood Studios parking lot just got a lot more character! Each section of the lot has been renamed after beloved characters guests can encounter on their adventures in the park: Mickey, Minnie, Jessie, Buzz, Olaf and BB-8. Two additional bus loops, just steps away from the main entrance, also have been added to serve guests arriving via Disney resort bus transportation.

These milestones are an important step in the multi-phased transformation of the guest arrival experience at the park, which began last year with a new entrance allowing guests to enter the park from Osceola Parkway. Construction continues on refreshed parking tram lanes and walkways, additional screening areas and a station for Disney Skyliner.

These exciting enhancements set the stage for a historic year at the park, which will include the opening of  Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway.

Join Us for a Bright and Colorful Weekend at Disney Springs

When friends and family ask about the perfect time of year to visit the Walt Disney World Resort, my answer is always spring! There’s something about the perfect Florida weather during this time that makes everything more magical and around here there’s no exception. Disney Springs offers the best eateries to dine outside with amazing views and the perfect shopping spots to pick up all the new spring styles. If you’re limited on time and planning to visit soon, you can’t miss this weekend’s trio of special happenings starting this Friday!

We started 2019 off by introducing the iconic “potion purple” collection, adding a pop of purple to your favorite Disney fashions staples like the Spirit Jersey and headband. At that time, I shared that new colors would debut throughout the year, and today I have more info on the latest. You may have seen a sneak peek of a “Dapper Yellow” Spirit Jersey (giving me all the summer vibes!) on social media not too long ago with a mention it was coming soon to Walt Disney World Resort. I’m so excited to share with you that this beautiful ray of sunshine will be available exclusively at World of Disney store at Disney Springs this Friday – March 22, 2019! The new spirit jersey is part of a new “flash color” collection and our merchandise team is working on even more colors to share with you in the near future.

Pro tip: Don’t wait to shop because you’ll only be able to find this at the World of Disney store at Disney Springs, while supplies last. Limited quantities are available and once they’re gone, they’re gone.  My suggestion? Be at World of Disney at 10 a.m. this Friday morning and park in the Lime Garage for easiest access to the store.

Castle Minnie ear headband

Looking for a new pair of ears to pair with it? I think these sparkly new castle ears work perfectly for a summer look.

Experience a Dinner with Disney Chefs at the 2019 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival

If you’ve ever wanted to meet the talented chefs and sommeliers behind the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival, then this dining experience is an opportunity you won’t want to miss! For one night only during the festival, you can enhance your festival visit with a delicious four-course dinner where you’ll get the chance to meet with our talented Disney culinary team members.

Disney Festivals Cookbook 2019

Each of the chefs and sommeliers that will be your hosts for the evening have been featured in our most recent Disney Festivals Cookbook, which features popular recipes from the Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival. The dinner itself celebrates storytelling through food and wine, and consists of four courses with dishes from the cookbook that reflect cuisines from Southern California. Each course is a new delight and each is paired perfectly with a hand-selected beer, wine, or cocktail. At the end of the dinner, the chefs and sommeliers will be available for photo and autograph opportunities.

Chef de Cuisine Jimmy Weita for Park Events and Festivals at Disneyland Resort

We asked Jimmy Weita, chef de cuisine of Park Events and Festivals at Disneyland Resort, about what he has planned for the dinner. “This dining experience will be a fun and completely reinterpreted version of our festival cookbook dishes, reimagined into a fine dining restaurant experience,” says Chef Jimmy, “The Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival has become known for its creative culinary mash-ups, and I’m really looking forward to sharing the melting pot of cultures and cuisines that can be found throughout Southern California.” Chef Jimmy is the one of the creative minds behind all of the savory dishes at this year’s festival, and is one of the chefs that will be in attendance at the dinner.

This one-in-a-lifetime dining experience occurs on Thursday, March 28, 2019, from 6:30 to 9:30pm in The Vineyard Room at Wine Country Trattoria. Reservations must be made in advance and space is limited, so be sure to book today! For more information and to make your reservation, you can visit the Disneyland Resort website or call the Disneyland Dine Line at 714-781-DINE (714 781-3463). The Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival runs through April 23. You can check out my official Foodie Guide for all of the fabulous marketplace menus at this year’s event.

Shrimp Boil Tacos from Off the Cob at the 2019 Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival

In addition, I have a yummy Disney California Adventure Food & Wine Festival recipe to share straight from the Disney Festivals Cookbook: Shrimp Boil Tacos. These tasty tacos can be found at the Off the Cob Marketplace located near Golden Zephyr and come with andouille sausage and fresh corn. And did I mention they’re also gluten-friendly? Now you can make these delicious tacos from the comfort of your own kitchen with the recipe below! If you’re interested in purchasing the cookbook, it can be found at Seaside Souvenirs and the Studio Store at Disney California Adventure Park as well as various merchandise locations throughout Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort.

SHRIMP BOIL TACOS WITH ANDOUILLE SAUSAGE AND FRESH CORN

Serves 4 to 6 People

Shrimp Boil Taco Filling Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp
  • 2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 links andouille sausage, diced
  • Kernels from 4 ears fresh corn

Taco Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 12 (4-inch) blue or yellow corn tortillas
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 2 limes, cut into quarters

FOR SHRIMP BOIL TACO FILLING:

  1. Peel and devein shrimp. Remove tails and cut shrimp into bite-size pieces.
  2. Melt butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add Old Bay, Cajun seasoning, paprika, cayenne and garlic. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until garlic and spices are fragrant. Add shrimp and cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until pink and opaque.
  3. Add sausage and corn and cook for 5 minutes, until heated through.
  4. Keep warm until ready to serve.

TO SERVE:

  1. Heat oil in large skillet until shimmering. Add tortillas in batches and cook for a few seconds on each side, until soft and warm. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Top fried tortillas with shrimp mixture. Garnish with chopped cilantro.
  3. Serve with lime wedges.

Cook’s Note: Use your nose when buying fresh shrimp—it should smell like the sea, and an ammonia odor indicates spoilage. (You could use frozen shrimp, but fresh shrimp have a better texture and taste.)

What to drink: A Riesling with a hint of sweetness will cool the spiciness of the andouille sausage.

Best Northern Europe Cruises in 2019

When it comes to cruising in Northern Europe, the amount of choices can seem daunting. In 2019, Disney Cruise Line offers a variety of itineraries from July to September, each with its own line-up of incredible locales. So which one is the right fit for your family?

To help you narrow down the choices, I’ve selected three of my favorite options to highlight for you today. Whether you choose one of these or another of our popular Northern Europe itineraries, you’re sure to be treated to a mix of spectacular destinations.

Two weeklong options from Dover, England, near London, include a stop in Copenhagen, one of the most popular port cities in Europe with storybook architecture, verdant parks, cobbled plazas and distinguished culture.

For nature lovers, Oslo offers hiking on quiet trails and boating through gorgeous fjords, while history buffs have their pick of more than 50 museums. Kristiansand is a charming port town on the southern coast of Norway where you can visit picturesque beaches or the colorful town center.

Disney Doodle: Mickey & Minnie Dine at Victoria & Albert’s

We’re kicking off this week on the Disney Parks Blog with a new Disney Doodle from artist Ashley Taylor.

In this series, our artists take turns imagining what different Disney characters would do or see first if they had the chance to visit a Disney Park. Today, Ashley imagines what Minnie and Mickey would do first if they could visit Walt Disney World Resort.

According to her, Mickey would likely head straight for the perfect romantic spot for him and Minnie to enjoy.

“Victoria and Albert’s is one of the most elegant restaurants in the world!” Ashley said. “It’s easy to imagine Mickey wanting to have a romantic dinner with Minnie there!”
