‘Walt’s Frozen Head,’ Filmed Secretly on Disney Property, Premieres Online March 14

Admin

From Orlando Weekly:

“Finally, everyone has a chance to see the underground future cult classic The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head. University of Central Florida film school grad Benjamin Lancaster spent four years making the feature, which plays off the urban legend that Walt Disney had himself cryogenically preserved…

…After killing on the festival circuit for the past six months or so, Lancaster announced last week that the film will premiere online at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, March 14, on YouTube.”

Should be fun to watch!

Guests Inside Galaxy’s Edge Will Have Persistent Interaction with Star Wars Elements

Admin

From wftv.com:

“Every cast member will be in character, the food and beverage and language will be in story. The merchandise inside the shops won’t be in boxes that say Disney on them. Everything is very, very immersive.”

Definitely looking forward to this. Except for the crowds…

Immersive can only take me so far when the park is shoulder-to-shoulder and I’m constantly dodging scooters and strollers.

I know what I’m doing on my next vacation.

From WDW News Today:

Vinepair: A Snob’s Guide to Finding Good Drinks in Disney World

Admin

Vinepair publishes “A Snob’s Guide to Finding Good Drinks in Disney World“:

“This may come as a surprise to those who envision both Walt Disney and his eponymous theme parks as wholesomely teetotaling affairs. But Walt was not a prohibitionist. Despite what countless people on the internet claim, Walt Disney was a man who boozed it up quite a bit — usually starting with a Scotch cocktail at 5 o’clock sharp. He simply wanted his theme parks and public persona to be a little more, ahem, dry than he actually was.”

“Walt Disney doesn’t drink,” he once told a friend. “I drink.”

Do you agree or disagree with their choices?
