Mickey's America Streetbeat was created especially for Limited Time Magic although some segments have been previously performed at ESPN Wide World of Sports and "Helping Kids Shine" Grants award presentations.

As far as Limited Time Magic events go, I think this one is spot on! If you plan to be in Epcot between now and July 14th, be sure to include this as part of your day! Show times are 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30.

Deb's Digest Blog

The 2nd Long Lost Friends week has returned to the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Here are some photos from Monday morning. Video will be loaded soon. My preview blog is here!

The characters began their meet and greets at 9am and kept a 20 minutes on, 10 minutes off schedule all morning. Lines weren't too bad.

From the movie Chicken Little, Chicken Little and Abby Mallard made an appearance. I have never seen them in the parks before, so I was excited to meet them. They were lots of fun.

Characters are NOT signing autographs however........
Once again, autograph cards were given out after your time with the characters. Be sure to ask for them before you leave that area. This really works well because you have more time to interact with all your long lost friends!

Penguin Up-Close Tour at SeaWorld Orlando

Deb's Digest Blog

SeaWorld has added a new tour to compliment their newest attraction, Antarctica Empire of the Penguins. I recently was invited by SeaWorld to experience the tour.

The approximate 45 minute experience begins with an introduction to Antarctica and the penguins.

penguin-up-close-tour-1.JPG

Then journey backstage to meet one of the Aviculturalists and learn about the care, feeding and even breeding of the penguins. With almost 250 penguins, Seaworld keeps track of everything from who they pair up with, when they hatched, molting, and much more.

While all the information was fascinating, I couldn't wait to get to actually see the penguins up close and actually pet one. Once inside the habitat I found it fascinating to watch the penguins, they are quite inquisitive. Our time inside the habitat was about 15 minutes! I could have stayed longer, but then I usually can when it comes to wildlife.

If you love Penguins, be sure to include this in your schedule!

Important Notes:

You do not get to ride the attraction, Antarctica: Empire of the Penguins as part of the tour.

The penguin habitat is 30 degrees Fahrenheit. I brought a fleece hat and jacket to wear (even tho it was 90 degrees outside) and was quite comfortable. Many of the others on my tour were shivering.

Seasonal price starting at $59 ages 10 and up, $39 ages 3-9 plus tax. Pass Members save 10% by booking online or calling 1-888-800-5447.

Would love to hear your thoughts once you've taken the tour!

DISCLAMIER: I was a guest of SeaWorld Orlando and did not pay for the tour.

2013 D23 Expo - Rapidly Approaching

Deb's Digest Blog

Next week, I'll be on a plane to Anaheim California for the 2013 D23 Expo at the Anaheim Convention Center. I'm really excited about going... I mean, where else can you be in Disney heaven between Imagineers, seminars, movies, autographs, costumes, characters, legends, and let's not forget shopping!


Here are my tips for attending the D23 Expo

1) Bring your Patience! The last 2 Expos were famous for long lines and long wait times to attend any of the seminars. D23 has listened and some improvements have been made for 2013. The Stage Pass is like a FastPass for the seminars. You must visit the ticket distribution area to obtain a Stage Pass. There are limitations but at least this offers a viable option! The other improvement is the 2,000-seat overflow simulcast area where guests can watch entire presentations of the D23 arena.

D23 Expo

2) Come Prepared! - attending the D23 Expo without any pre-planning is like, well, arriving at a Disney park for the first time and having no idea where to go or what to see. The D23 website is filled with official information such as the detailed schedule of events. There is also a D23 Expo app, free from ITunes. The D23 folks promise to send out push notifications throughout the expo of seminars that are filled and any changes. The D23 Expo Guide is available to download as well.

D23


3) Have Realistic Expectations - Realize you won't see it all! Despite all your marathon expo training (you did train right?) seminars will fill, you'll get hungry, you'll find a long lost online friend and lose track of time, your at the wrong end of the building and have 5 minutes to try and make your next seminar.... and so on and so on.

D23 Expo

4) While in Line Meet your Line Neighbors -Tired of staring at your phone and/or Ipad? Talk to the folks around you who are also waiting in line. Disney fans love to trade stories and share adventures. It's a great way to pass the time!

D23 2011 Expo

5) Don't miss the Collector's Forum Several exhibitors have autograph guests (some Disney legends), others offer opportunities to buy that Disney trinket you've been searching the internet for, others offer prizes. Also many websites and authors will have booths too .. so meet the folks you read all year long! All Ears Sponsors: MouseFan Travel and Orlando Attractions Magazine both have booths in the Collector's Forum.

6) Shop Early -- If you want that special limited collectable, then your first stop on Friday morning needs to be the Disney Dream Store, followed by a visit to Mickey's of Glendale.

D23 Expo

7) Spend time just soaking it all in!!! - You'll have sensory overload very quickly as you step onto the Expo floor. Instead of rushing off here and there, arrive early and give yourself the opportunity to just walk around and see what's going on. You never know what you'll find!

8) Be sure and say HELLO to the AllEars folks who will be covering the D23 Expo. This year Deb Wills, Debra Martin Koma, Laura Gilbreath, Lee Zimmerman, Jeanine Yama, and Jason Dz will be exploring the expo and seminars to bring you up-to-date coverage. And if you see either Deb Wills or Deb Koma, be sure to ask for your free AllEars Trading Card Sampler Pack! Follow us on Twitter and Instagram Deb Willshttps://twitter.com/AllEarsDeb will also be tweeting from her account!!

Ok, got all that? Those are my suggestions. But let's get some tips from the head of D23, Steven Clark.

"First, I'd encourage anyone planning to attend the Expo to download the D23 Expo mobile app, which is available now in both the iTunes and Google Play stores. It allows guests to plan out their Expo experience before they arrive at the Anaheim Convention Center - plus, there's a show floor map, talent bios, trivia and more. When guests arrive, I'd encourage them to use our StagePass system, which works similarly to a FASTPASS; guests will be able to pick up a ticket for a presentation they'd like to see in Stage 23 or Stage 28, and they will be guaranteed a seat up until 15 minutes before the show, which we hope will alleviate some of the time guests spend waiting in lines. And the third is stretch, hydrate and don't forget to eat. OK, those are three things in one, but we really have packed the event with three solid days of outstanding Disney experiences and we want to make sure everyone has a great time!"

I also asked Steven if there was a "sleeper" exhibit - you know the one that folks may walk past but really should stop and explore. "The great thing about the Expo is that it brings out every type of Disney fan, so one person's "sleeper area" may be another's "must-see." The Expo is a great opportunity for a Disney theme park fan to stop by one of the animation pavilions to see how we're making the next Disney classic. Disney movie lovers can visit Treasures of the Walt Disney Archives to see the actual props and costumes used in some of their favorite films. And I personally can't wait to see the creativity of our guests on display at the "a la mode" Costume Contest on Friday, which I think will be a visual highlight of the weekend."

And if you are still on the fence about attending, Steven's suggestion is to "Check out D23Expo.com just for a glimpse at the celebrity appearances, engaging presentations, once-in-a-lifetime concerts, immersive pavilions and sneak peeks at the latest Disney movie and TV shows. There really is something for everyone."

That's about it for now. I'm Looking foward to a great Expo and meeting many of you! Now what was that about being prepared? Guess I better become familiar with the D23 Expo app!
