Crowd Management: Part 1

Alright, so I already told y’alls to head down during the holiday season to see how magnificent Mickey looks when he’s decorated for Santa. Only snag with that plan is it can get super crowded this time of year. Think Walmart on Black Friday.

To give you an idea…

Fun fact: At park’s opening, in order to avoid a wildebeest stampede, the cast members used to hold a rope across the street and lead the massive mob to the attractions at a brisk walk. Didn’t work. Just like Mufasa, the cast members were taken over by the ravenous beasts. So Disney decided to use small children to hold the ropes instead. Risky. But, thankfully, effective. The children remain un-trampled and humanity retains a small amount of dignity.

But, with a few tricks of the trade (which I will impart to you over the next few days), you can avoid the mayhem and have a truly magical day.

Top Five Disney Villains

So I was listening to a Disney podcast the other day (actually, the one I recommended in a previous post) and I heard a fun little rumor regarding Gaston’s Tavern in Disney World’s New Fantasyland.

The idea got me so excited that I decided to create a list of my favorite villains, with whom I’d love to share a pint of LeFou’s brew.

Dragons? Dragons!

For a little while now, the internet has been buzzing about Disney Imagineers testing flying dragon contraptions, presumably for the theoretical “Avatarland” set for Disney’s Animal Kingdom (more on that another time).

Turns out we were wrong. Not about the dragons, but the location.  Disney Parks’ Official blog has been reporting “dragon sightings” in the form of a grainy video and sepia photo of mysteriously large eggs.
