Feature: New Merchandise, Royal Rooms, and News of the Day
Mark shared two interviews from the Walt Disney World Summer to Remember press event and discussed Walt Disney World news with Mike.
New Merchandise with Steven Miller
Mark chatted with our old friend Steven Miller about some of the cool new merchandise coming to Disney parks this summer. Some of the highlights include the tiny MousekeEars, Vinylmations, Orange Bird and Tiki Room merchandise, and Epcot 30th anniversary items. Mark had to cut the interview short because he was going to be late for the shuttle to his Wild Africa Trek tour.

Royal Rooms with Kambria Hull
Kambria gave Mark a quick tour of a Royal Room, which is themed as a guest room at Princess Tiana's mansion. The room is filled with memorabilia and gifts from visits by her other Princess friends. Features include bathroom trim and a shower curtain from Ariel, a magic carpet (woven into the main carpet) and a Genie lamp sink faucet from Jasmine, the dog-turned-ottoman from Belle, a picture frame from Snow White (carved by the Seven Dwarfs), and more. Photos of Tiana visiting with her friends decorate the walls. The bedspreads are patterned with images of the crowns of each of Tiana's friends. Best of all, the headboards for the beds feature a "fireworks display" that can be touched off by guests from a button on the headboard.
