Looking up

Construction of Typhoon Lagoon's water coaster is continuing. The Master Blaster-style coaster has been rising behind the Out Of The Way Cay area of the park. Vertical construction continues, and it appears that some of the uphill water pumps have arrived at the staging site. Once the water park goes down for its annual refurb on December 12, the construction crews should have a little more latitude in doing their work, since they won't have to worry about disrupting guests in the park. We have a few pictures scattered through the Update this week, thanks to MousePlanet reader Paul C. Martens. For more photos by Paul, you can go to his web site (link).

Looking down

MousePlanet's Mike Scopa and Brian Bennett and The Unofficial Guide's Len Testa were able to attend a sneak preview of the Stitch's Great Escape attraction on Saturday. Early word from the group is that they were "disappointed" and that it's not necessarily as small-child friendly as we may have hoped. We hope to have more details on this next week after Mike gets home and has an opportunity to write up his thoughts. In the meantime, we have a couple of photos from inside the attraction to whet your whistle.

In the meantime, it appears that Stitch has trashed the Magic Kingdom in a commercial that will be coming to a TV near you soon. In preparation for the grand opening of the attraction on November 16, Disney shot a commercial in the central Hub area of the theme park in which it appears that Stitch has tossed much of the furnishings of Cinderella Castle about the Hub, and he has toilet-papered the area, as well. An alert reader has contributed a couple of photos of the scene.

Rookie wins FUNAI Classic at WDW; course to get changes for next year

Congratulations to Ryan Palmer for winning the FUNAI Classic at Walt Disney World. The tour rookie made four consecutive birdies down the stretch to finish with a tour record tying final-round total of 62, ten strokes under par. Palmer's four-round total of 266 beat Briny Baird and defending champion Vijay Singh by three strokes.

Palmer's string of birdies may not be easy to duplicate next year. The Magnolia Course, home to three of the tournament's four rounds, will be closed for four months next summer starting in early May for major renovations that will make the course much more difficult to play. In the first major work done on the Joe Lee-designed course since 1993, Magnolia will be lengthened by over 200 yards, to at least 7,400 yards. In addition, the greens will be resodded with Tifeagle, a hybrid Bermuda grass that was installed this summer during the rehab of the Palm Course, home to the other round of the FUNAI Classic. The final two holes of the course will be lengthened to 480 or 490 yards each, which will make it that much more difficult to mount a final birdie charge at the tournament. The course should reopen some time next September.

Holiday happenings update

Special holiday events are set for the entire Walt Disney World Resort, but don't count on seeing the Very Merry Christmas Parade if you're not going to be at one of the Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party events. In response to a query, MousePad member RememberthMagic received an email response from WDW Guest Communications stating that they have no plans to run the parade at any time other than during the Christmas parties at this point. The Share a Dream Come True Parade will run daily through the holidays. This would mark the first time in three years that the Christmas Parade will not run during the day. The parade may run during the day in staggered segments on December 3-5 in order to tape it for broadcast. We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, there are plenty of other special events going on to celebrate the holidays.

Magic Kingdom

The forementioned Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party features special holiday shows, fireworks and treats as the park opens for a five hour party after the day guests leave. Up to 25,000 guests per night will enjoy the event on 12 evenings: Nov. 28 and 30, Dec. 2, 3, 5, 7, 9, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 17.

During the day, live holiday entertainment may be seen in the park, not to mention the enormous Christmas tree in Town Square.

Epcot

World Showcase features holiday storytellers at each pavilion. The American Adventure pavilion will feature Kwanzaa and Hanukkah exhibits in addition to the storytellers. Each night, Disney characters lead a tree-lighting ceremony at World Showcase Plaza. The Lights of Winter again brightens up the walkway between Future World and World Showcase with its canopy of lights. "IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth" features a holiday-themed finale. The festivities run from November 26 thorugh December 30.

The Candlelight Processional — a retelling of the Christmas story by a celebrity narrator accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra and mass choir — runs three times nightly from November 26 through December 30. A show-and-dinner package that provides reserved seating at the performances is available.

Disney-MGM Studios

The Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights returns to the Disney-MGM Studios after a one-year hiatus. This year's "Spectacle" should be interesting, as the five million lights will be set up on the Streets of America in a main guest traffic area of the park instead of the out-of-the-way Residential Street. This year's display will run from November 24 through January 2.

Animal Kingdom

"Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade" replaces the usual daily "Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade" from November 30 through January 1 as it takes a festive holiday theme. In addition, Santa Goofy and other Disney characters take up residence in Camp Minnie-Mickey as it receives a holiday makeover.

Downtown Disney

The Festival of the Seasons runs from November 26 through December 24 and features window displays and a giant tree. Holiday lights line the rooftops, and Santa is available for photo opportunities.

Resorts

As usual, the Disney resort hotels will all get gussied up in their finest holiday decor. Christmas trees and other themed holiday decor will be on display at all hotels, while some of the deluxe resorts will continue their annual tradition of gingerbread structures.


What new Disney attraction would be complete without ... a merchandise shop at the exit? Photo by Brian Bennett.

NYC World of Disney store not quite so heavily remodeled

Last week, we attempted to give an update on the remodel of the Disney Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City to a new World of Disney location. Relying on Disney press releases and second-hand reports, we stated that the store had been "completely remodeled from its life as a Disney Store/Disney Gallery." MousePlanet reader Gregg Jacobs wrote with some first-hand observations contradicting that information:

You said that the World of Disney Store in New York had been "completely remodeled from it's life as a Disney Store/Gallery". I live in New York City, and no one was more thrilled than I was when I heard they were shutting down what was left of the Disney Store on Fifth Avenue and remodeling it into a World of Disney Store. Upon attending opening day this month, I expected a completely different shopping experience from what was there before, something similar to what we enjoy in Orlando and Anaheim. Imagine my surprise when I walked in and found virtually the exact same store they closed in March. They did add the princess room on the 3rd floor (replacing the Disney Gallery), added a video game area on the 3rd floor and crammed a Mr. Potato Head dispenser into the Toy Area, but otherwise, it's pretty much the same. The fixtures are virtually identical, and the merchandise is very similar to what they had before. The marquee out front is even essentially the same, only changed to say World of Disney instead of The Disney Store. Where is the cool kitchen stuff and fancy jewelry they have at the World of Disney in Florida? All in all, they slapped the World of Disney name on a big Disney Store. Disney missed a chance to really wow New Yorkers.

Disney Wonder back from refurb

The Disney Wonder returned to service last week after a visit to dry dock in Norfolk, Va., for interior and exterior refurbishing, as well as its regularly scheduled inspection. As with the Disney Magic's refurbishment last year, the ESPN Skybox was converted into Aloft, a teen hangout. Common Grounds has been replaced, and there are two new adult areas on the ship. Cove Cafe is a quiet lounge near the adults-only pool serving coffee and light snacks, where adults can read a magazine, check email, or enjoy quiet conversation. Diversions is a sports bar in the nighttime entertainment district that features a variety of entertainment options. The entire hull was painted from top to bottom, and the superstructure and engines were given a thorough test. MousePlanet staff members are on the refitted Wonder's second cruise this week, and we hope to have more information on its new look soon.

Discounts for early 2005 are out

Resort discounts for the first part of 2005 have been announced. Annual Passholder & Florida Resident discounts are valid for January 2 through February 16, while general & Canada Resident discounts are good for January 2 through April 16.

Ears to the ground

…Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party is sold out for October 29 and October 31. The only nights still available for purchase are October 26 and October 28.

…The main lift hill is up at Expedition Everest as construction continues.

…We are now hearing that Cinderella's Surprise Celebration will run through Feb. 26, then shut down for the duration of the run of the Cinderellabration show that will be staged for the "Happiest Homecoming on Earth" celebration. The new night-time show is expected to start preview performances on March 13, so that it will be up during the Easter holiday rush. Cinderella's Surprise Celebration is currently expected to return at the conclusion of Cinderellabration's run after the 18-month celebration.

…Watch yourself in the Magic Kingdom parking lots next month. The 2004 Snap-On Tools Stars of Karting National Finals will turn the Grumpy and Bashful parking lots of Magic Kingdom into a temporary go-kart track where six National Championship races in various classes will take place from Nov. 12-14.

…We're hearing that noise from the construction work on expanding the convention center exhibit space at the Coronado Springs Resort is audible throughout the Casitas section of the resort. No word on when the exterior work will be completed.
