Disney Days of Past: Mickey’s Birthdayland Becomes Mickey’s Starland at Magic Kingdom Park

posted on May 28th, 2015 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center


Mickey’s Birthdayland became Mickey’s Starland at Magic Kingdom Park this week in 1990. A few of the local residents gathered by the town sign to commemorate the name change.

Mickey’s Starland eventually became Mickey’s Toontown Fair in 1996. Now, of course, it’s home to Storybook Circus, where you can fly on an elephant, feel the thrill of The Barnstormer or visit some familiar friends at Pete’s Silly Sideshow.

Cheers to Me! It’s Dinnertime at Magic Kingdom Park

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center

Lots of guests visit one of our amazing restaurants at dinnertime when visiting a Disney Park, but there are lots of quick options to enjoy too. I decided to head over to Gaston’s Tavern for dinner.

If there is one thing I like even more than a good turkey leg, it’s the pork shank. It’s seriously delicious. And I wasn’t leaving there without the help of a Lafou’s Brew to wash it down. (I told you I was all-in today!)

You might think I was done eating for the day, but you’d be wrong. The pièce de résistance for my Coolest Summer Ever food marathon is diving into the Kitchen Sink sundae from the Plaza Ice Cream Parlor.

I wasn’t playing when I said ice cream was my favorite food. There is always room for ice cream. Always.

Thanks for reading along all day as I toured my taste buds around Magic Kingdom Park. I hope you enjoyed it as much as my stomach did.

It’s Snacktime: Finding Favorite Treats at Walt Disney World

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center


wdw200p

There are just so many snack options when visiting a Disney Park that the tough part is figuring out just what to snack on. Here are a few of my favorites that are helping me keep my stamina while the Coolest Summer Ever keeps moving on here in Florida.

You scream, I scream, we all scream for six ice creams!

Truth: ice cream is my treat. I would live off of it, if allowed. So when someone suggested eating one of everything from the ice cream cart, I’m game. Have you ever seen me look so happy as I do above? The Mickey Premium Bar continues to be my top pick!

Oh, ice cream not your thing? You want something salty?

Popcorn – you can’t go wrong with this choice at Walt Disney World. It’s the best popcorn on earth in my humble opinion.

nrsfcfa123456

Maybe, a bit of sweet and sour is your game when it comes to picking a snack.

Goofy’s Candy Co.’s Mostly Sour Powder Candy is a fun treat. At the Confectionery on Main Street, U.S.A., I was able to create-my-own by picking my favorite flavors. This snack brings me back to childhood. I can’t even remember the last time I’ve enjoyed a snack like this.

I’ll be back one final time with some dinnertime selections. Yes, I’ll be hungry for dinner – no need to worry! In the meantime, tell us in the comments section what your favorite Disney Parks treat is!

It’s Lunchtime at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort

posted on May 22nd, 2015 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center


wdw1200p

It’s lunchtime and I have a hankerin’ for a turkey leg. Don’t mind if I do! I even traveled to Frontierland just so I could snap a shot with my turkey leg while wearing a coonskin cap. It seemed so apropos.

Turkey Leg

When I eat a meal, I often find myself craving something sweet (especially while visiting a Disney Park). This delicious churro sure did do the trick. Afterwards, I burned off some of those churro calories taking a tour of the Swiss Family Treehouse. So. Many. Stairs.

Orange bird drink

I needed a beverage to go with my turkey leg and churro. So I stopped and got a Diet Coke in one of these awesome Orange Bird sippers from the Sunshine Tree Terrace. (I even took a breather after those Treehouse stairs to enjoy it.) Everything tastes better, I swear, when you’re sipping it from inside of one of these awesome beverage vessels!

I’ll be back again soon with some more snackin’ fun.

Enjoying 24 Hours of Snacks at Magic Kingdom Park

When they asked me to spend the day snacking my way around Magic Kingdom Park to kick off the Coolest Summer Ever at Walt Disney World Resort, I was honored. It is not every day you find yourself getting paid to eat delicious treats. I kicked off my morning with a trip to Starbucks on Main Street, U.S.A.

dscnrl123456

I love starting my day with a Iced Skinny Vanilla Latte. Not only does it give me a morning boost, it’s delicious. Plus, it is super awesome that I can visit a Starbucks inside a Disney Park! After enjoying my coffee, I needed a snack to keep my energy going.

nrepaw123456

As you may recall, I love food shaped like a character. And ‘oh boy’ did this Mickey Pretzel hit the spot. I enjoyed it as I relaxed on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover and took a tour of Tomorrowland. Afterwards, I decided to quench my thirst.

This blue slush from Storybook Circus not only was delicious, but turned my tongue a nice shade of blue. I took it all in as I cooled off near the Casey Jr. Splash ‘N’ Soak Station.

I’ll be back soon enough with some lunchtime food fun. Stay tuned!

Disney Days of Past: Celebrating DINOSAUR at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

posted on May 21st, 2015 by Nate Rasmussen, Archivist, Marketing Resource Center


This week in 2000 the film “Dinosaur” was released. “Dinosaur” stars an iguanodon, Aladar, who should be familiar to fans of Disney’s Animal Kingdom and the attraction DINOSAUR in DinoLand, U.S.A.

When Disney’s Animal Kingdom opened in 1998, this attraction went by the name Countdown to Extinction. In fact, on the Time Rovers you can still see CTX written on the vehicles.
