BREAKING NEWS: Disney Submits Reopening Plan Proposal
Disney World Reopening Plan: What we’ve all been waiting for is finally here! The Walt Disney Company has presented a reopening plan for Walt Disney World to the Orange County Economic Recovery Task Force. Jim MacPhee, Senior Vice President of Operations and Chief Operating Officer at the Walt Disney Company, presented the plan at today’s meeting (May 27, 2020). While the plan still needs to go through additional approval processes, we currently have some key details related to the proposed reopening.
If I Could Live in an Attraction: Ben’s Top 5
As we all anxiously await the reopening of the most magical place on earth, many of us have spent considerable time indoors. I, for example, live in a small apartment in the city with my wife. (I am convinced that she believes each person she speaks to on the phone is hard of hearing, such that she shouts into the phone at maximum volume.) [Note: his wife is editing this post and thinks he’s the pot calling the kettle black…] As a result, I have spent a good deal of time pondering other places where this period of isolation might be more fun. Then I got to thinking, “Wouldn’t it…

The Maps of Disney
Maps of Disney: Whether you have been to Disney World or Disneyland 100 times, or you have never been before- looking over a map of the parks is very important! The Disney parks are an ever-changing landscape. Something seems to be different every time you visit. If you have never been to the parks before, it is especially important that you try to get the lay of the land. Well, do I have good news for you! Here at Disney Dream Co., it is one of our goals to be a place of reference when looking for park info. I have compiled a list of Disney World maps for you…
Ben’s Top 5 WDW Lobbies
Courtesy of the Imagineers, Walt Disney World features some of the most magnificently themed resort hotels on the continent. Each is carefully curated to transport its guests to whatever destination the Imagineers transplanted into central Florida. Not all lobbies are created equal, though, so check out my top 5 WDW lobbies here.
Kim’s Top 5 WDW Attraction Queues
I hate to break it to you, but you’re going to wait in lines at Disney. Planning and strategic use of FastPasses can sometimes minimize those waits, but they’ll still exist. Disney knows its guests don’t want to wait, so it does its best to make the attraction queues as entertaining as possible; they become part of the attraction experience.
Kim’s Top 5 – Hollywood Studios Edition
I was hesitant to do this post without having visited Galaxy’s Edge (and without both attractions at Galaxy’s Edge being open), but I’ve got almost 6 months until my next trip to WDW, and I’m simply not that patient. I’ll revisit this list after I head over to Batuu (and maybe again after checking out Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway!), but for now, here are my top 5 favorite attractions at Hollywood Studios!! You can also check out my Top 5 Attractions for Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Animal Kingdom!
Disney Skip List: Muppet Vision 3D
I love Disney six ways to Sunday, but sometimes I think my beloved conglomerate really misses the mark. In the parks, I put those attractions that don’t really tickle my fancy onto a very (especially relative to what the parks offer) short “Disney Skip List.” You can read about what landed It’s Tough to be a Bug on this list here, but in this post, we venture over to Hollywood Studios to discuss the “bizarre in a not-so-charming way” Muppet Vision 3D.
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
Disney’s BoardWalk Inn is one of 3 deluxe resorts (the other 2 are Yacht Club and Beach Club) nestled around Crescent Lake between Hollywood Studios and the International Gateway at Epcot. During each of the past 3 Augusts, Ben and I have stayed at one of these 3 gorgeous resorts, finishing our trio just a couple of weeks ago at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn. This time, though, we were treated to something truly magical – a room upgrade to a 2-story loft cottage with Club Level access.
Planning for Disney World – Basics
Sitting down to start planning your Disney vacation can feel so overwhelming. Since fully embracing my Disney obsession, I feel like I’ve tailored my planning process to give me a vacation I can look forward to for months and that I can remember fondly for years. While my strategy may not be right for everybody (disclaimer: I don’t have children, and I’ve been told they change a thing or two when it comes to…oh, everything in life), hopefully I can share a tip or two that help you out!
