Even The Bathrooms Are Magical

Even The Bathrooms Are Magical

One of my favorite newly constructed themed areas is the Rapunzel themed area in New Fantasyland inside the Magic Kingdom. The tower itself has been up for awhile, peeking out from atop the construction wall. When it was revealed, guests literally were immersed in the Tangled village, dancing among the lanterned village “shops”. When I […]

But early? How fun would that be? Here are the latest pictures, taken from just in front of Beast’s Castle, The peek-through […]

They’re pulled out fresh and piping hot, then dusted with sugar. I know what you’re thinking… Ewww (because that’s what I thought too!) but they’re quite […]

The First and the Last
