"Celebrate the Magic" is a worthy follow-up to WDW's first castle projection show
I have to admit that I'm kind of a sucker for all of these castle shows that Disney has begun doing in the Magic Kingdom . Whether it's draping this iconic structure with over 200,000 lights to turn it into a wintery wonder for the "Cinderella's Holiday Wish / Castle Dream Lights"...

Mickey always plans a few moves ahead when it comes to Walt Disney World

New shops & entertainment options re-energize Downtown Disney’s West Side

Denny P. dropped me a line on Saturday to ask: Did you see Jason Garcia’s story in the Sentinel yesterday about the Wizarding World of Harry Potter ?
