Fun to do while at EPCOT this Christmas - Chip & Dale’s Christmas Tree Spree

intercot.com - 3 hours 4 min ago
Copied from the Disney website:

Chip & Dale’s Christmas Tree Spree

Chip and Dale are collecting ornaments for their Christmas tree—and they need your help! To get started, simply purchase a map and sticker from select merchandise locations, including Pin Central, Disney Traders and World Traveler at International Gateway.

As you travel around World Showcase, be on the lookout for Chip and Dale as they gather ornaments from holiday decorations in each World Showcase pavilion. Once you spot them, add the corresponding ornament sticker to your map. Then, take your completed map to Disney Traders and exchange it for a festive surprise, courtesy of Chip and Dale!

Maps are $6.99 plus tax, and are available throughout Holidays Around the World at Epcot while supplies last.

Note: Valid theme park admission is required.

Pretrip report- Reunion and daughter time

intercot.com - 11 hours 39 min ago
After Thanksgiving we are going for our December week at WDW. This time, we have old friends from our hometown joining us. First time we have gone on a trip with them and since we see each other rarely it will be a real treat (they live in Kentucky and we are in PA). Also our youngest daughter, Stephanie, is going but not sure how much time she will spend with us. She wants to snack her way around Epcot and draw and paint and relax. It will her first time at Shades of Green and hoping she will like it.

Looking forward to all the holiday activities and our new experiences at Animal Kingdom. I still haven't seen the Tree of Life projection show or Rivers of Light. And of course, Pandora. Can't wait for those new experiences.

Will be interested to see how Stephanie and I feel about Wishes being gone and the new fireworks at the Magic Kingdom.

Our friends have never been to WDW during the holidays so they are very excited to see it all and especially Epcot Candelight Processional.

I was able to get dining at all my first choice locations and our fast passes worked out great too.

Can't wait to get this party started!!

Disney Parks and Superstars to Light Up ABC’s Primetime Special ‘The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration’ Nov. 30

disneylandnews.com/ - Thu, 2017-11-16 18:46

Merry holiday moments from Disney theme parks around the world and a star-studded cast of entertainers will launch a “25 Days of Christmas” countdown when “The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration” airs Thursday, Nov. 30, 2017, from 9:00–11:00 p.m. EST on The ABC Television Network.

The magical two-hour event will be hosted by Emmy® Award-winner Julianne Hough, multiplatinum recording artist and television personality Nick Lachey, and sports star, broadcast correspondent and commentator Jesse Palmer.  The show will give viewers a front-row seat to a Disney Christmas party like no other – a family holiday tradition brimming with colorful lights, snow flurries, memorable music and more.  From the Cinderella Castle stage at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, Hough and Lachey will perform a spectacular opening number named for the primetime special.

Tony Award-winning actress Idina Menzel will join fellow “Frozen” star Kristen Bell to perform together for the first time on primetime television.  The pair, who voiced the characters of Elsa and Anna in the animated blockbuster, will perform in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle at  Disneyland Park in California accompanied by a 30-voice choir.  The two stars of stage and screen will sing “When We’re Together” from the brand-new Walt Disney Animation Studios featurette, “Olaf’s Frozen Adventure.”

The holiday special’s other unforgettable, wish-come-true moments will include an extraordinary castle lighting extravaganza from Disney theme parks around the world – traveling the globe from California and Florida to Paris, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

A Sneak Peek at New Star Wars– and Toy Story-Themed Lands

The force will be with all who tune in for a sneak peek at Disney’s new Star Wars-themed lands, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, opening at both Disneyland Park in California and Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida in 2019. The new lands promise adventure on a galactic scale when guests steer the Millennium Falcon on a customized secret mission in one attraction and engage in a climactic battle between the First Order and the Resistance in another.

From the edge of the galaxy “to infinity and beyond,” viewers will discover Andy’s world in the new Toy Story Land to open next year at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.  The new family-friendly Slinky Dog Dash roller coaster and the Alien Swirling Saucers attraction will join the original Toy Story Midway Mania! attraction to give Woody, Buzz and Andy’s entire toy collection a backyard play land scaled to render park guests seemingly toy-sized.

Musical performances in the primetime special will include:

  • Ciara will perform a joyful Christmas medley, including “Jingle Bells” and “Jingle Bell Rock” from a sparkling Cinderella Castle at Walt Disney World Resort.
  • Grammy Award-winning country artist Darius Rucker will sing “Winter Wonderland.”
  • Emmy-nominated actress and singer Lea Michele will be joined by special guest Joey McIntyre to sing the classic holiday duet, “Baby It’s Cold Outside.”
  • Multiplatinum-selling group Fifth Harmony will sing “Can You See,” from The Star soundtrack, plus “The Christmas Song.”
  • Fitz and the Tantrums will perform their platinum-certified hit, “HandClap,” and their original Christmas song, “Santa Stole My Lady.”
  • Multi-Grammy-nominated trio Hanson will light up the night singing “Finally It’s Christmas,” from their recently released Christmas album.
  • Boy band In Real Life will sing “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”
  • Multiplatinum powerhouse Jason Derulo will perform “This Christmas.”

Viewers at Home Will Be Able to “Glow with the Show”

For the first time, viewers will be able to “Glow at Home” during select performances in the holiday special, thanks to the brand new “Made with Magic® 3.0: Connected Ear Hat” and the Shop Disney Parks app. Leveraging Bluetooth® technology, the Shop Disney Parks app enables viewers wearing the new 3.0 edition ear hats at home to sync with the ABC holiday special playing on the viewers’ TVs or other devices.  Viewers will feel like they are part of the show.

The app also has a remote-control feature to adjust the ear colors and speed of the strobe – a brand-new feature for the Made with Magic® Ear Hats. If viewers at home don’t have the special edition ear hats, not to worry. The Shop Disney Parks app will allow them to enjoy a second screen experience as their mobile phone comes alive, mirroring the spectacle on-screen during select performances. The Made with Magic® 3.0: Connected Ear Hat and the interactive ear hat remote control feature on the Shop Disney Parks app will both be available Nov. 17.

Holiday magic is endless as Disney theme parks transform into winter wonderlands filled with seasonal attractions, joyful entertainment, festive décor and special treats that make every day feel like a holiday. The spirit of the season shines even brighter in these magical places where families share traditions and make memories together.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi showing at Disney Springs

intercot.com - Thu, 2017-11-16 15:36
We are going to be at WDW during the release of the movie. My boys really want to see it and not everyone in the family is a Star Wars fan. I am, but I can wait until I get home. Anyway, does anyone know if the theater at Disney Springs is selling tickets ahead of the opening, and if so, how much are they. I thought I could just send my boys over there for the night and they would be happy. :darth::trooper::chewy::yoda:

Kohls/Apple Watch 3

intercot.com - Thu, 2017-11-16 10:49
For anyone looking to buy an Apple Watch 3 for Christmas this is as close to a discount as I could figure out. Even though it's not available for a % off it is eligible for Kohl's Cash Back. So that would be $60 on the 38mm and $70 on the 42mm. If you access Kohls through a site like Ebates you're getting another 3% back. I've sen the older models in Black Friday circulars but not the 3 so I thought I'd share.

The current cash back offer expires 11/16 and can be used from 11/17-11/22. Historically there may be another offer before the holidays.
