Celebrating Collaboration: A Refreshing Look at Disney’s Uncle Walt’s Insider’s History with Coca-Cola Churros

Huh, kind of looks like Disney Parks Blog stole this idea from us. And then published it first. UNCLE WALT'S INSIDER H.Q., SVALBARD -- Only one cinnamon-sugar, fried dough treat has been with us since Magic Kingdom Park Uncle Walt's Insider opened its website at Walt Disney World Resort on the internet nearly 50 years ago.

We'd write a subheadline, but we're afraid Disney will charge us for it. BURBANK, CA -- Uncle Walt's Insider previously reported (with 100% accuracy) that it was coming, but now Disney has now officially announced the new "Genie" service. The Genie app eliminates all those annoying free features that investors hated and brings in a new era of pay-to-play to the Disney parks. This revenue-generating service (again, first announced here at UWI) will eliminate FastPass, FastPass+, MaxPass, MaxPass+, and FastPass+-++-++. [Walt.: Marty, ... Read more

Really? This type clickbait headline is what Uncle Walt's Insider has sunk to? GARDEN GROVE, CA -- Uncle Walt's Insider recently learned of a man who lost 350 pounds on the Churro Diet!

While some would say this diet lacked vitamins and any ... Read more
