Goofy's Candy Co. Treats

Goofy’s Candy Co. has a few new treats back by popular demand! Gourmet Cotton Candy and Boozy Frozen Glaciers!

If you stopped by the Christmas Tree Trail in Disney Springs last year, you probably saw the fun cotton candy offerings. Cast members were dishing out fresh cotton candy in holiday flavors like Candy Cane, Eggnog, and Gingerbread Man. These were such a hit that Disney has decided to keep this treat around all year long!

Starting now, you can still order the same holiday flavors as before with a few additions as well. New flavors include Sweet Mesquite, Root Beer, Sour Apple, Strawberry Banana, and Key Lime. I am not so sure about Sweet Mesquite Cotton Candy, but count me in for the Strawberry Banana!

Here’s how to order:

  • Head on over to Goofy’s Cando Co. and make your way to the cotton candy station in the back corner.
  • Order your favorite flavor and watch the cast members spin your cotton candy right in front of you.
  • Smash your face into your delicious and delightful cloud of candy!

If cotton candy isn’t your style, try the Goofy’s Glaciers instead! These slushies are perfect on a hot day. There are seven colors to choose from like “Goofy Glacier Apple,” “Orange You Happy Orange” and “Powerade® Mountain Blast”. Mixing and matching is encouraged!

Interested in an adult beverage? Guests who are 21 and older can add vodka, rum, or tequila to their Goofy’s Glacier for an additional cost too!

Which of these Goof’y’s Cando Co. treats are you putting on your must-eat list?

Disney Announces Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance Will Open at Walt Disney World First, Then at Disneyland. The announcement shares the opening dates for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance at both U.S. based parks, but will first be available at Walt Disney World’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

According to Disney, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open on Dec. 5 at Walt Disney World Resort in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. This comes as a surprise since Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge first opened at Disneyland Resort this summer and Walt Disney World Resort will be opening their stargates on August 29th.

The new land will open without one of it’s main attractions, much like Disneyland did, but will see the new attraction open December 5, 2019.

In a statement regarding the attraction Disney said, “When it opens, Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will blur the lines between fantasy and reality and will put guests in the middle of a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance. Guests will be recruited to join Rey and General Organa at a secret base. Along the way, they will be captured by a First Order Star Destroyer. With the help of some heroes of the Resistance, they break out and must escape the Star Destroyer, protect the secret base, and stay one step ahead of Kylo Ren.

As soon as work is completed at Walt Disney World, Imagineers will head back to California to complete their mission at Disneyland Resort where Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open on Friday, Jan. 17. ”

There you have it folks! Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance will open on December 5, 2019 at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida , and January 17, 2020 at Disneyland Resort in California.

Missing: Entrance to Tomorrowland Sign

tomorrowland sign missing

This part of the Magic Kingdom looks so weird without the entrance to Tomorrowland sign.  In the past couple days, the large sign marking the beginning of  Tomorrowland was taken down.  Where did it go?  Did it just need a little refurbish or do you think it will return entirely different?  It sounds like the sign needed an update.  We cannot wait to see what Disney comes up with but for now, the void will remain.

The sensational Plumeria Minnie Mouse Ears from Aulani are now available at Walt Disney World! These gorgeous ears were once an Aulani exclusive. They made their appearance late last year at Tropical Hideaway in Disneyland, and we have been eagerly awaiting their debut at the Walt Disney World Resort.

We’ve also seen the tropical print Aulani ears on shopDisney, but it is very exciting that you can now find them in WDW. The headband is draped in black sequins, with Plumeria flowers, and have hidden Mickeys! That’s right, each Plumeria blossom has a grouping of tiny yellow beads that create a hidden Mickey inside. You can pick up these beauties in Adventureland, for $30.00. They were flying on the shelves at Adventureland, but they may be at the Polynesian as well.

Disney Cruise Line is the 'World's Best' According to Travel + Leisure
We might be biased, who are we kidding we are totally biased when it comes to Disney, so naturally we weren’t surprised to hear the Disney Cruise Line is the ‘World’s Best’ cruise line according to Travel + Leisure readers. Thousands of readers participated in an annual survey to pick their favorite destinations, hotels, resorts, spas, airlines, tour operators, rental-car agencies, cruise lines and more!

The Disney Cruise Line has a uniqueness all of its own! Aboard the beautiful ships, guests can view magical fireworks while at sea, all-day family fun, the beaches of Castaway Cay. All of these opportunities are just a few reasons why the readers of Travel + Leisure voted the Disney Cruise Line as the ‘World’s Best’ ocean cruise line carrying 2,200 passengers or more for the publication’s annual World’s Best Awards.

Service was among the list of criteria readers used to rate the qualifying cruise lines. Of course, many thanks to the amazing cast members aboard the Disney Cruise Line that go above and beyond daily to make the most magical experience for each and every guest. In fact, according to the Disney Parks Blog, the Disney Cruise Line has been recognized with hundreds of distinguished awards from the travel industry since first setting sail in 1998.
One reader stated, “The best part of the cruise was the service that we received. The waiters knew exactly what my kids liked after the first night. They were attentive to detail, kind, and entertaining.”

The Disney Cruise Line is not slowing down. The line will be building three new ships, as well as, developing a new private island. In addition, next year the cruise line will be adding New Orleans as a home-port! The Disney Cruise Line will also be returning to the Hawaiian Islands, Puerto Rico, and Greece. Bring on the cruises! Were you surprised to hear that the Disney Cruise Line is the  ‘World’s Best’?
