Long Lost Friends day one – my experience and their full schedule and locations

long lost friends header

I arrived at the Magic Kingdom at about 8:30 a.m. ready to meet some characters that are difficult to find at Walt Disney World these days.  For only one week (January 21-27) in Town Square at the Magic Kingdom they are offering “Long-lost Friends Week.”  I had fully expected to see the exact characters that appeared but was surprised that Gideon wasn’t meeting with the Pinocchio gang.  It’s funny to me that many guests have no idea where to line up for the quickest entry from the rope.  I just waltzed right up to the rope while all the other people were forming a psuedo line behind the other section of rope.   Continue reading Long Lost Friends day one – my experience and their full schedule and locations

WOWZER – another clown joined the Storybook Circus

WOWZER (13)

Another pleasant surprise (if you can handle clowns) in Storybook Circus is the addition of Wowzer the acrobatic, juggling clown.  After watching his 14 minute performance I left thinking his act was sort of a combination of Serveur Amusant and Sergio the Juggler from Epcot but unique in it’s own right.  Thankfully, he never used a whistle!  Those whistles in Epcot can drive me nuts.

Wreck-it Ralph and Vanellope

I had a number of blog readers request some information on the Wreck-it Ralph and Vanellope meet at Hollywood Studios.  I actually waited in the line twice during my recent trip and dropped in to see how the line was looking a few times.  The queue area is designed to look like Game Central Station with video screens that represent Wreck-it Ralph, Hero’s Duty and a broken Galaga game that we are peering through back into the real world.  It’s well designed to remind one of the movie, but I think they missed the mark by not putting in any actual video games.  We found one Fix-it Felix video game in another room, but it was a non-working version.

Wreck-it Ralph and Vanellope begin appearing October 28

image

Disney Parks has confirmed the news that I’ve been telling you about for quite some time.  Wreck-it Ralph and Vanellope will begin meeting guests at Hollywood Studios on Sunday, October 28 in the Magic of Disney Animation area.  It’s the same area that houses Sorcerer Mickey and the Incredibles. 

My best guess is that the movie will be a big success, but the character may be short-lived.  Ralph can get pretty exhausted wrecking all day and he may not last more than a few months.  Costumers have described him as a “hot mess” when it comes to how difficult it is for him to move about.  Think of James P. “Sulley” Sullivan in terms of movement, only worse.  Ralph will be incapable of signing autographs, so that will be left to Vanellope – the princess of pulled taffy.  I don’t have their official schedule yet, but I expect them to meet 10-6 daily, or something like that.

Be sure to check out their new movie which opens November 2.  It’s a great movie with lots of laughs, nods to classic video games and a big heart.  If you’re a character hunter, meet these guys in the next few months or you possibly may never see them.
