I’d like to say thank you again to everyone who shared their favorite Disney Parks thrill ride (and lists of faves) here on the blog and on Facebook this week. If you missed the original post, we went into the parks to get an idea of what you were thinking.

Here are a few more of the week’s most popular posts.

Springtime in Tomorrowland — Paul Hiffmeyer does it again, this time blending horticulture with futuristic architecture in his latest photo.

Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular
— As one of the longest running Broadway-style shows in the country, there will have been approximately 7,500 total performances and nearly 9.5 million guests will have seen this fantastic show. Aladdin, Jasmine and the Genie will make their last appearance on stage in this entertaining show on August 15.

Endangered Sea Turtles Rescued — To help the turtles, the Disney’s Animal Programs team took part in a massive effort by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to rescue more than 4,500 sea turtles impacted by the record cold temperatures.

Extra Time to Dine at Epcot? — Do you like the idea of an extra hour for dining in the evening at Epcot? Give it a try from March 28 through April 10, and let us know what you think — you can book your “extra hour” table at Coral Reef Restaurant, Garden Grill or Le Cellier Steakhouse.

The Mechanical Kingdom — Great news Steampunk fans! On April 1, you can meet Mike Sullivan, the Disney artist behind The Mechanical Kingdom, and have your pins signed at Disney’s Pin Traders from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. This store is located in the Downtown Disney Marketplace at Walt Disney World Resort. Steampunk goggles are optional.


  • Hi Thomas! I was wondering if DIsney has any plans of adding Greece to Epcot. While there are many wonderful countries in the World Showcase I always hoped that they would one day add Greece to the park. Are there any plans for this in the future? Thanks!
