Well, that may change with the newest addition to their coaster-roster, coming in 2016. Mako, a high-speed, high-scream coaster will be debuting next summer much to the delight of heart-pounding coaster enthusiasts & thrill-seekers.

There has been a lot of uproar in regards to Disney Cruise Line's new policy when it comes to guests bringing alcohol onboard. The previous policy had no set limits as to how much a guest could bring onboard when checking-in. The new policy has set a limit of two bottles of wine or champagne OR 6 bottles of beer p/adult (21 years or older). This is valid for each port of call the ship stops at.
Fast & Furious coming to Universal Orlando Resort
It was only a matter of time before one of Hollywood's hottest franchises made it to Universal Orlando Resort. That's right folks, Fast & Furious: Supercharged is heading to Florida. On the heels of Fast & Furious 7 and the success of the current attraction at Universal Studios Hollywood, the most logical next step is to bring it to the fastest growing theme park in North America.
Disney Cruise Line - Trans-Atlantic Itinerary Change
Having heard the news of Disney Cruise Line's decision to change the itinerary for the 2015 Eastbound Trans-Atlantic crossing, we feel the need to address our sailing guests.
Although we share your disappointment, we support & understand the difficult decision Disney Cruise Line was forced to make. Decisions of this magnitude aren't easy nor taken lightly. To ensure the safety and security of guests & crew; the cruise is forced to deviate around the heavy ice flows that are in the area of St John's-Newfoundland & Iceland. This year Eastern Canada experienced a more harsh winter than most. This, coupled with a tardy start to Spring, makes navigating the seas too dangerous to put guests at risk.

Epcot's Norway Pavillion is being "Frozen"
With the popularity of the "Frozen" franchise, it was just a matter of time before the rumours that World Showcase: Norway Pavillion would get a Frozen transformation, came true. Today, Disney Parks announced that Maelstrom, Norway's boat attraction, would be replaced with a Frozen themed attraction. The new attraction will bring guests to Arendelle, and immerse them in many of their favourite moments & music from this hugely succesful animated feature.
Family Fun @ Hollywood Drive-in Golf
One of the seemingly overlooked recreational activities at Universal Orlando Resort is Hollywood Drive-In Golf at CityWalk. This is a perfect opportunity for your family to enjoy some CityWalk fun, before or after a meal. I prefer the evening when the course is lit up and the golfballs glow & twinkle.

Disney Fly Medley - Arranged by Jamey Ray
While creeping social media, this morning; I came across this little gem. Now, I'm not one of those get-all-sentimental type of people, but this is pure vocal genius.
The video is a mash-up of "Fly" based Disney tunes, and will have you wanting to strap on a pair of wings & be one with a blue-sky world.
Arranged by Jamey Ray, who has a Master of Music degree in Music Technology from New York university, and a Bachelor's degree in Vocal & Piano Performance and Computer Science from Rollins College; this 12 person performance has me wanting to run downstairs and watch every darned Disney animated feature that I own.
