A Big Day at Disney

Not new news to most, but today is the day, the official grand opening of the New Fantasyland.

But also, the new Test Track at Epcot and Pirates of the Caribbean: The Legend of Captain Jack Sparrow thing at Hollywood Studios.

I believe the bowling alley at Downtown Disney is also opening in the coming days.

Happy Birthday Walt. Yesterday, Dec. 5.

There was also a fire-breathing dragon flying over Fantasyland last night:

The dragon was amazing but a lot of money spent for a one time event it's too bad they wouldn't incorporate even once a week or something. I hope the bowling alley opens soon we were hoping to go

I spy with my little eye something that is gray and flies. That's fun!

Yes, I wonder if Dumbo will get a meet and greet at some point. That is the first time in years that I have seen Dumbo in costume.
