Are Amazon Minnie Mouse Ears Worth Buying Over Disney Minnie Mouse Ears?
Minnie Mouse Ears are a very popular accessory to wear to Disney World! However, purchasing ears from Disney World can get expensive if you are looking to buy multiple pairs! I tested ears from Amazon to see how they compared to real Disney Minnie Mouse Ears. Let's see if they are worth buying over real Minnie Mouse Ears! If you are looking to purchase Minnie Mouse ears from Disney parks, typically one pair costs at least $29.99. I went on Amazon to see if there were any cheaper options and found a couple pairs that were a fraction of the cost and came in a variety of styles!

What Happens When Rides Break Down WITH YOU ON IT at Disney World! 😮
Rides tend to break down throughout the day at the Disney parks. Usually, these rides become temporarily closed for a lost items or software issue. However, what happens when the ride breaks down, but you are still on it? Recently this happened when I was riding Rockin' Rollercoaster. Ride before the ride was supposed to launch, it had powered down. We were evacuated from the ride and given two Lightning Lane passes to use throughout Hollywood Studios. The guests that were waiting to get on the ride were given one Lightning Lane pass. These Lightning Lane passes can be used at select attractions around the parks. And that's what happens when rides break down! Have you ever had a ride break down while you were on it?

You MUST Visit Epcot's NEW Connections Café and Eatery!
With so many improvements coming to Epcot, one new location you won't want to miss out on is the new Connections Cafe and Eatery! This location is Epcot's newest dining center. After visiting and touring this location, there are a couple of things I really appreciated about the Connections Cafe and Eatery. The nice thing about each of these locations is that they are connected to form a donut shape. The space is also very open and has an airy feel. The decor and architecture are very modern and abstract with a vibrant atmosphere. Here you have the option to eat at the eatery section or grab a drink at the cafe which doubles as a Starbucks. This is a great location to come to relax from the hot Florida weather or stop to charge your mobile device at the numerous charging stations.

Disney Updates Create a Buzz
Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom Cinderella's CastleCamillo Vitale. So it is Winter and supposed to be a slow time of year for Disney right before the Spring Break season begins so it wouldn't be completely shocking if you missed a few of the low-key announcements that have created quite a buzz on social media recently, and no we aren't talking about Figment popcorn buckets. Truth be told we did find it interesting that legions of Disney fans stood in line for 6 hours in some cases to obtain a souvenir filled with hopefully fresh popped corn but will complain about wait times for new major attractions. But it seems we have moved on past that which generally is a good thing for everyone.
