Burn, dragon, burn! Disney inferno...
ANAHEIM, CA -- Guests viewing the Saturday evening performance of Disneyland's Fantasmic show were given a special treat: the addition of a new fire effect!
During the Maleficent dragon scene, rather than just breathing fire, the dragon itself turned into a spectacular, menacing "fire dragon," composed of flames from head to tail! Guests report that the effect was stunning and very unexpected. (Several Cast Members said the same thing.)
While the new fire effect is amazing, insiders tell ...
Just what Florida wanted, Disney having more power.
ORLANDO, FL - As you may have heard, the Florida Legislature has stripped Disney of its control of its local quasi-government entity, the Reedy Creek Improvement District.

We'll miss them. Some of them.
MAGIC KINGDOM, FL -- Guests visiting the Shanghai Disney Resort, Spa, and Re-education Center have enjoyed the Tron Lightcycle Run attraction for decades [Ed.: decades?]. And while it may seem "old and busted" in Shanghai, it is the "new hotness" at the Magic Kingdom, which of course is in the heart of Florida at the newly re-dedicated Walt Disney World Resort, Spa, and De-programming center.
However, the opening of the attraction has been delayed, due to ...
