Yes, you can get alcoholic beverages at this lunch box!

Fun twists on American dishes like a S’mores French Toast Sandwich are available for breakfast, and hot sandwiches available for lunch and dinner include kid-friendly grilled cheese sandwiches and BBQ Brisket Melt. Potato Barrels and Totchos (tater tot nachos) are available for lunch and dinner.

Lunch Box Tarts (frosted raspberry or chocolate pop tarts) provide a sweet pastry treat all day long.

The Magical Walls of Disney World

wall dak

The Fichwa! Fellow wall at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. (Fichwa means “hidden”, so this is a Hidden Mickey!)

It’s a fun photo scavenger hunt to find these “Disney Walls” in the WDW parks.

The best WDW walls for your next Instagram photo are:

Purple Wall

The Purple Wall by Tomorrowland.

#1:  Magic Kingdom Park’s #PurpleWall – The famous #PurpleWall is kind of cool. It’s located in Magic Kingdom near the Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor in Tomorrowland.

It’s all different-colored purple triangles, with sort of an Epcot look.

So, take your time and get out your cell phone….and snap a few photos of you and your friends!  Sometimes, there’s even a snack cart stationed here.

Action:  Next time you’re walking in Tomorrowland, stop for a few seconds at the #PurpleWall and take some photos.

Action Rating:  Worth it!

#BubbleGumWall

#2:  Epcot’s #BubbleGumWall – This tri-color wall is just outside the exit of Spaceship Earth on the right.

Action:  Next time you’re walking out of Spaceship Earth, stop for a few seconds at the     #BubbleGumWall and take some photos.

Action Rating:  Worth it!

#3:  Epcot’s #BlueberryWall – Two steps away from the #BubbleGumWall is the bright #BlueberryWall.

Action:  Next time you’re walking out of Spaceship Earth, stop for a few seconds at the #BlueberryWall and take some photos.

Action Rating:  Worth it!

There’s even a nice bench to sit on in front of the #MossWall.

#5:  Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s #MossWall  – Head into Pandora – The World of Avatar and walk towards Satu’li Canteen. Just opposite the restaurant’s front door is the very popular Disney green moss wall, which you can spot on Instagram under the hashtag #MossWall.

IMG_9598

There are actually lots of cool moss walls all over Pandora!

Action:  Next time you’re walking around Pandora during the day, stop for a few seconds at the #MossWall and take some photos.

September 26, 2018:  Tim Allen appeared on The View this morning to discuss returning to his Buzz Lightyear role for the 4th time.

Watch video of Tim Allen on The View: Tim Allen Talks About Toy Story 4

The 65-year-old actor, who has portrayed Buzz Lightyear throughout all four films, appeared on The Talk on Wednesday in which he spoke about the highly anticipated animated film.

Asked by cohost Sara Gilbert whether he was hard at work on the beloved film, Allen said, “Yes, I gotta resist getting emotional. I don’t want to give it away, but this is an incredibly great story. It is so emotional, it’s so funny, it’s so big, the idea they’ve come up with, I’m startled. I couldn’t even get through the last scene. I would love to be a Washington leaker.”

Before he could say anything more, he stopped himself, explaining, “I just can’t do it. I can’t give any more away. They’ve got great characters but a couple of scenes toward the end were really hard to get through.”

Toy Story 4 Plot:  This time, it’s all about the love story between Woody and Bo Peep. 🙂

“I love Bo Peep,” said John Lasseter, the former chief creative officer of Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios. “And we never got to know her backstory. She wasn’t in Toy Story 3 at all, so it really set us up nicely for her to come back. It’s a very special story.”

Bo Peep is voiced by Annie Potts. Tom Hanks, of course, voices Woody, while Tim Allen covers Buzz Lightyear.

Both Tim Allen and Tom Hanks will be back for Toy Story 4!
