Are you going to be at Epcot for the 30th Anniversary?

Monday, October 1st, 2012. Now that’s a special date on the calendar of Walt Disney World! As everyone knows, Monday will be the 30th Anniversary of the opening of Epcot! Much like last year’s 40th Anniversary of the Magic Kingdom and Walt Disney World, this weekend is seeing a lot of people travel to Walt Disney World for the celebration, as well as for the kickoff of the 17th Annual Epcot International Food & Wine Festival, and I’ll bet a bunch of them will also be at the Walt Disney World Moms Panel Meet & Greet! For all of you that are going to be down there, have a fun and safe trip and enjoy every moment of the fun! If you are of a mind to do so, please feel free to send Disney pictures on up to the My Dreams of Disney Facebook Page!

Characters In Flight to Reopen!


Exciting news for those of you that, like me, wish that Characters in Flight was open at Downtown Disney!  Word is out that they are working on the attraction, have installed a new balloon, and are currently in testing!  No word on when it will open, but I am excited to know that it will be reopening again in the future!  I was going to ride it when we were down in June, but it was closed that day, and then it was closed because of the accident in Hong Kong, so there was no way of knowing if it would open up again.

I heard about this from my friend Denny, who saw it over at WDWMagic.  You can check out their article there.  While you are waiting for the attraction to open again, take a look at some of the pictures my wife took when she rode the balloon in 2010!  Enjoy!
