Walt Disney World Vacation Vlog September 2015 Day 7

Welcome to day 7 of our September 2015 couples trip. Come back every week to see our whole vacation!

Today we start off a quick morning at the Magic Kingdom followed up by a monorail resort tour then a boat over to Fort Wilderness for our first time at the Hoop-Dee-Doo Musical Revue! As if that wasn't enough we finish the night at Trader Sam's Grog Grotto and watch HalloWishes from the Contemporary viewing platform.

We did not intend to release these as vlogs. I shot most of the footage for our trip montage, so bear with us! Thanks for watching and please subscribe!

New Details on Toy Story Land Revealed

Toy Story Land is still far off but today we got a few tidbits of new information on the Hollywood Studios land. First is the name of the alien flat ride. 'Alien Swirling Saucers' will have the little green men flying around in their toy saucers trying to catch your rocket toy vehicle with the "Claw".

The largest new addition of this land will be 'Slinky Dog Dash'. The coaster has you riding on Slinky dog as he races around Andy's Mega Coaster Play Kit which he has modified to incorporate some of his favorite toys. Disney has released a concept video of the ride as you can see above. You can get a pretty decent idea of how the final land will look as well. Are you excited for any of these new Toy Story attractions?

Disney Announces Ambiguous Dates for Summer Offerings

Disney Announces Ambiguous Dates for Summer Offerings

Over the past few days, Disney has revealed their plans for the coming summer season to the blogging elite. Awaken Summer as they are calling it not only refers to new Star Wars offerings at Hollywood Studios but new additions all around the resort. While most of these announcements might sound familiar, mostly because we knew almost everything that is on the way and some new attractions still haven’t been given firm opening dates, let's try to break down what you can expect to awaken this summer.

Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire has been narrowed down to June from its original summer slot. The stage show replaces Dream Along with Mickey on the Magic Kingdom's castle stage once it is finished its refurbishment. The show will feature new characters, songs, and costumes.

A Disney Junior star will be making their meet and greet debut at the Magic Kingdom. Elena of Avalor is Disney's first Latin princess. Her series will debut this summer and you can begin meeting her this August.

Amorette’s Patisserie Opens May 15th at Disney Springs - See Some of the Treats Now

We first heard about Amorette's Patisserie back in February when Disney announced a bunch of new locations coming to Disney Springs this year. The little bake shop should be a big hit among fans when it opens May 15th.

The latest trends in food are mainly in presentation and Amorette's looks like they will excel there. The cakes shaped like character ear hats look great and they will be packaged in boutique style boxes that are modeled after classic hot boxes.

There is more on the menu as well including hot chocolate ganache, macaroons, champagne and gluten free cakes. Amorette's Patisserie could be the go-to place for those celebrating an occasion on property. Will you be checking it out opening day?

See the Progress on Motiongate Dubai

You might have heard about Motiongate Dubai when the Hunger Games land was announced. While that property still doesn't make that much sense in a theme park to me, the rest of the park has the potential to be pretty interesting. The park is split into five lands including Studio Central, Lionsgate, Sony Pictures Studios, Dreamworks and Smurfs Village.

As you can see in the video above they are cramming a lot of attractions in there. None of them sound too terribly exciting but with proper theming they could be cool. Are you heading to Dubai any time soon?
