Beginning today, you’ll be hearing a lot more about the idea of showing your Disney side – the side of you that says “yes” more often, laughs louder and lives life to the fullest. It’s the side of you that embraces fun and comes out to play the moment you step through the gates at Disney Parks.
Along with the video, Disney just launched a new destination – DisneySide.com. At the site, you’ll be able to share your own Disney side with the world and see what’s being posted and talked about online. You can also share with the hashtag #DisneySide across our social channels, including Twitter, Vine, Instagram, Google+ and Facebook.
Pool Operating Hours are about to change.
Beginning Sept 29 Walt Disney World Resorts pools will now only operate only when lifeguards are on duty. The First to push this new policy rule will be the value resorts. Usually the pools operate from 7am to 11pm with lifeguards after their shift is done you can still be able to swim with your family but all of this will no longer take effect starting Sept 29. All pools will be closed and not be available to use after hours.The Resort Quiet Pools will not be affected by this and operate 24 hours but with no lifeguards. Disney is trying to have all Resort Pools with this new Policy by Nov.2013
I got some Disney Gossip to Discuss for 2014 and it looks as Disney will be throwing another Disney 24 All-Nighter Event with the theme being Maleficent the 24 hour event will be set to be around Memorial day the same date that they have the Monstrous Summer Kick-off 24 hour event with the Host of Mike And Sully. Maleficent is said to be themed since her movie comes out around the same week as Memorial Day. The event is said to be Friday 23 before Memorial Day kicks off. This is great news and hope Disney decides to Keep it, Maleficent is one of the Best Villains and would love to see what type of party will go down with her being the host. I am already marking my Calendar

Testing the Magic BANDS at the Contemporary Resort
Testing the Magic Bands at Walt Disney World went very Smooth and its very easy to use upon arrive i just went ahead and let the front desk know i had my magic bands and she handed us our Key to the World Card as a backup just in we had any problems with our bands which we didn't. she also gave us a limited time bandit to wear around the band which glows in the dark. It is fairly easy to open up the Resort Door all you have to do is touch the mickey with mickey icon and the light will go green, and this goes for everything else attraction, and park entrance. Another thing they added with these magic bands is that the Cast Members Greet you with your name when you are checking in at your fastpass plus attractions which is really nice they have a system that lets them know the name of the person that is going into the attraction. I later had a Fast Pass Plus reservation for Wishes which was at the Garden view and i have to say the view is spectacular.
if you are wondering how you can get a magic band you need to stay on site at a Walt Disney World Resort. At the Moment these Bands are in testing so its a limited amount of Resorts testing. Resorts Testings go as followed. Other Resorts will be included throughout the next couple of months as Disney tries to push towards there deadline to roll them out fully by the end of the year.
Mickeys Not So Scary-Magic Kingdom
Friday The 13th the kicked off at the Magic Kingdom With Mickeys Not So Scary Halloween Party my favorite time of year to visit Walt Disney World. With so many activities going on.

Throughout the Evening,Night Guest are able to Trick O Treat throughout the Magic Kingdom in search of their favorite candy, there are many trick o treat zones and you can fill up your treat bag with as much candy as you want. There are two BOO TO YOU Parade showings first one at 8:00PM and the Second one at 11:00 at night and to get the parade started they have the Headless Horseman ride around the parade route and the Creeper Crew hype things up. Also i can't forget about HalloWishes my favorite fireworks show with the Hitch Hiking Ghost and songs from Nightmare Before Christmas playing throughout the castle.
Disney confirmed today that Princess FairyTale Hall will be officially opening at the Magic Kingdom Sept 18, 2013
Guest will be able to meet their favorite Disney Princess in a Royal Setting.
Hope every one had a nice Labor Day Weekend, i have some huge news for everyone who visits the Walt Disney World Parks. This week Cast Members have been talking about Disney dropping the Fast Pass Program for non resort guest and that means for guest not staying on property. Fast Passes will be eliminated for everyone except resort guest with key to the world cards or linked magic bands. If you stay on property you are only going to be limited to 3 passes per day only at one park. Also for people who are local they will be no passes for them unless they are staying a night at a Disney resort. Annual Passholder's will not be allowed in the fast pass program unless you stay in a resort. So it looks like Disney is really wanting guest to stay on property more and use the my magic+ system. This will all take over by the end of Sept 2013.
