r-1399082713-SevenDwarfsMineTrain57 Looking At The Design And Technology Of The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

So today is the day that The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train offi­cially opens in the Magic Kingdom. A cause for great excite­ment amongst Disney Theme Park fans and marking the final comple­tion of the New Fanta­sy­land project after approx­i­mately 1 billion years (it’s possible I’m exag­ger­ating slightly). All of which is pretty cool in itself. But if, … Continue reading Looking At The Design And Tech­nology Of The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train

So Disney’s movie Malef­i­cent, which is supposed to give a bit of a Wicked spin on the Sleeping Beauty villain isn’t even out yet, but I guess those photos of Angelina Jolie have made an impres­sion, because there is cosplay! And excel­lent work it is too, both in costuming and photog­raphy. Source: L.A. JAZE Cosplay Eoghann Irving Overly … Continue reading Disney’s Malef­i­cent Cosplay

13919110715_913cb38aa8_b LEGO Disney — Rafiki

Okay here’s a clever build that hits both my LEGO and Disney geek spots. It’s Rafiki from Disney’s The Lion King. And while the body is (as the builder acknowl­edges) a little mini­malist the detail on the head is just perfect. I like the medi­ta­tion pose that the char­acter has been put in and once again LEGO’s … Continue reading LEGO Disney — Rafiki

1609975_1431475547093603_1451074619_n Disney Fan Art: Gender Switching

Artist Sakimi chan has produced a series of images that reimagine classic Disney char­ac­ters as the oppo­site gender  (and sexed up a bit too in most cases). Male Poca­hontas and female Hades are pretty awesome but I think my vote goes for the male Cruella Deville as the winner. Which is your favorite? Check out the Face­book page … Continue reading Disney Fan Art: Gender Switching

Seven Dwarfs Mine Train – A First Look At Some Of The Animatronics Seven Dwarfs Mine Train — A First Look At Some Of The Animatronics

It shouldn’t be much longer now until the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train in The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney Wold opens and completes the New Fanta­sy­land expan­sion.

The big new thing at Walt Disney World this year is the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train which is the final element of New Fanta­sy­land (the rest of which opened some time ago). By the stan­dards of modern coasters this is a tame ride. It’s intended for fami­lies and aimed some­where between the Barn­stormer “kiddie” coaster and Big … Continue reading Seven Dwarfs Mine Train Photos

Here’s a wonderful cosplay by Lady­Giselle. Not only does she capture the look of Disney’s Cinderella all dressed up for the ball, but the photo­graph is staged to show her rapid exit from that ball and of course there’s the shoe on the stairs.
