A Walk in the Park: Walt Disney World Edition

By Krista Joy

Walt Disney World’s Animal Kingdom has to be one of the most gorgeous theme parks on the planet, wouldn’t you agree? It’s beautiful topography and landscaping truly makes you feel like you have been whisked away to a wild and exotic continent. At times it may even feel like you have gone back in time to be in the presence of dinosaurs!

Making of: DINOSAUR

By Keith Mahne

DINOSAUR has always been one of Animal Kingdom's top attractions. Keep in mind that the park's offerings on opening day were extremely lackluster with only 3 main attractions and also the Festival of the Lion King show. If you think about it, DINOSAUR is really a next generation, classic Disney dark ride which is a big reason why it quickly rose to the park's top "must ride" attraction, particularly before the addition of Expedition Everest in 2006. Join us as we take a look at the creation of DINOSAUR in this Disney Avenue Making of segment...

Disney's Headless, Horseless Horseman

By Keith Mahne

One of the most popular portions of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party is the ride of the Headless Horseman. A couple of years ago, a video came out that shows why horse shoes and wet bricks just don't mix. The cell phone video captures the horse and rider falling while passing through Liberty Square on a slick street. Continue after the page break and let us examine this from a few angles...

Marvelous to Mediocre: Beautiful Theatre to Huge Hat

By Keith Mahne

There are times in life when a hat comes in handy... blocking the sun, keeping the sweat out of your eyes, a day at the horse races, even to cover a bad hair day. When a hat is used to literally block a beautiful theatre it becomes just downright unacceptable! Continue after the page break for what entering MGM Studios use to be like before a huge fiberglass hat fell from the sky and what we hope it will return to with the recent news that it will be relocated...
