Star Wars: March of the First Order Ending at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Star Wars

Captain Phasma leading the Stormtroopers. Very dramatic!!!  (All photos by Elly Collins.)

The last performance of The March of the First Order was Saturday, July 6, 2019.

We think that it’s moving over to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge when it opens on August 29th.

The March of the First Order debuted at DHS in April 2016 and quickly turned into a fan favorite.

The LED screens on the stage switch over to a red Star Wars First Order emblem as the march starts.

The Star Wars theme music begins blasting every hour and along comes a parade of Stormtroopers marching down the street. Pretty cool.  You almost feel like saluting them or something!

minnie 4th of july

These patriotic Minnie Ears are perfect for wearing on 4th of July!

Yes, it’s the most crowded day in July at Disney World, which is also the busiest attendance month at WDW, but, heck yes, it’s a lot of fun too!

Just go with the right attitude and you’ll have fun celebrating the 4th of July holiday this week at Disney World!

Magic Kingdom Park – Park Hours: July 3rd, 8 am – 12 am; July 4th, 8 am – 1 am

    • “Disney’s Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky” offers booming fireworks orchestrated to patriotic melodies showering the Magic Kingdom sky on both July 3rd and July 4th at 9:15 p.m. Guests can also dance the night away with DJs spinning tunes at a Hoedown Throwdown in Frontierland and an out-of-this-world Galactic Gathering in Tomorrowland. Fans at home can join in the Independence Day celebration by viewing a special July 4th live stream of the dazzling fireworks display on the Disney Parks Blog.
    • Watch live stream at 9:10EDT:  Disney Parks Blog Live Stream

Epcot – Park Hours: 9 am – 9 pm

  • “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” will end its 20-year run on September 30, 2019. This will be the last chance to experience the patriotic Fourth of July grand finale of this beloved nighttime spectacular. “The Heartbeat of Freedom” fireworks extravaganza will begin immediately following the 9 p.m. “IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth” display.
  • A cappella vocal group Voices of Liberty will perform great American tunes during a Fourth of July concert on the America Gardens Theatre stage at 5:30, 6:45 and 8 p.m. on July 4th. The group also will perform in the rotunda inside The American Adventure pavilion at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.

    July 4th, 2017, 8pm:  Main Street USA at the Magic Kingdom.  IT WAS VERY CROWDED AND HOT!!!!

    Expect the parks to be packed, especially the Magic Kingdom, with crazy long ride lines and food lines, but just go with the flow. 🙂

    The celebration starts on July 3rd and continues into July 4th!

    memorial day castle

    The Magic Kingdom is more fun on the 4th of July after the sun sets and it starts to cool off a little.

    Magic Kingdom – Special ‘Celebrate America!’ Fireworks Over the Castle!

    Expect 15 minutes of impressive – and LOUD – pyrotechnics rising not just above the Cinderella Castle, but all around the park. Independence Day is one of the few fireworks displays, along with the Halloween and Christmas versions, that utilize the perimeter bursts, making it seem like the fireworks are all around you.

    As you may expect, the fireworks display is accompanied by a rousing patriotic soundtrack that is designed to speak to the soul of America.

    Unofficial Tip:  Think you’ll watch the fireworks from the beach at the Polynesian Resort? You and a lot of other folks are thinking the same thing! Disney will be checking Magic Bands for beach guests on the 3rd and 4th , and parking will be restricted to resort guests only. The Resort Parking Fees just increased this week!

Meeting the Fairy Godmother at Disney World

Fairy Godmother

Meeting the Fairy Godmother on the day we got engaged. She told us: “May all your dreams come true!”  ❤

We have been lucky enough to meet the Fairy Godmother many times at both Disney World and at Disneyland!

She is one of the kindest people that you can meet!

godmother

My mom meeting the Fairy Godmother. She only meets here in front of Storybook Treats when it’s not raining.

She’s a favorite of ours!  She’s just the nicest character that you’ll talk to at the Magic Kingdom!

2019:  Meeting her once again at the Magic Kingdom.  Her Meet & Greet spot is right behind Cinderella Castle.

She got a costume update about 3 years ago.

Can you spot the differences?

fairy-godmother

This was the shiny costume she was wearing when we saw her in 2015.  Her costume is now made of soft blue velvet.

*****

The Fairy Godmother is the sweet and kind fairy that appears to Cinderella when she is in times of need and trouble.

She is a little forgetful, and her spells don’t last past midnight, but through her magic she enables Cinderella to go to the ball to achieve her dream.

With a flick of her magic wand and a Bibbidi Boppidy Boo, the Fairy Godmother is all that is pure and true in the world.

A Magical Moment Reunion for a Guest at Disney Worldgodmother1

25 years later….

When Amber was 2 years old, she met Snow White at the Magic Kingdom.

“Every single time I saw her until I was 15, she recognized me and knew me by name. She made my Disney childhood so incredibly magical. I haven’t seen her in person since, but I knew she was now the Fairy Godmother. Today, I tracked her down & got to hug her. Best day ever!!”

🙂

****

And, she also occasionally has to comfort guests:

fairy godmotherShortly following her birth, Janice Murphy’s infant daughter Analiese died from complications related to a rare chromosomal disorder. Murphy recently visited Disney World, bringing with her a purple teddy bear containing her daughter’s ashes.

Murphy wrote that she spent several minutes in the park crying and mourning what she says her daughter will never experience. She lined up to see the Fairy Godmother, and when she finally shared her story with the Fairy Godmother, she writes that she was pretty much floored by her compassionate response.

“Despite your utter lack of knowledge, you included the bear in our interaction,” says Murphy. “And when you found out that my daughter died, and that her ashes are within the bear, you treated her the same way you treat every child that comes to see you every single day: with love, compassion and kindness. When you hugged her, and kissed her cheek, you made me feel like Analiese mattered to you.”

The interaction allowed Murphy to connect with her baby Analiese. She explained, “You helped me feel her spirit in a place she was never able to visit while alive.”

Guests can see Captain Hook every afternoon in the Festival of Fantasy Parade at 3pm.

He’s on the Peter Pan float and swings on by while standing on the ship’s swaying anchor.

We like his velvety hair!  (I want to touch it so badly!)

We’ve seen him a few times strolling through Adventureland near the Pirates of the Caribbean ride before the parade.

In April 2019, he started greeting young guests at Disney’s Beach Club Resort for dinner.

Dinner with Captain Hook’s Pirate Crew

hook1

That hair!!! ❤

Looking for a Bunch of Scallywags!

Shiver me timbers—Captain Hook and his crew invite you to dinner and to see if ye be worthy of joining their ranks.

Upon entering Pirate Hideaway, seasoned members of Captain Hook’s crew will assist you in the first, most crucial step towards becoming a pirate—receiving your pirate name. Next, they’ll teach you the many skills crucial to life on the high seas such as talking like a pirate, swabbing the deck and singing sea chanties!

Captain Hook himself will be checking in to examine your progress and get you started on your first treasure hunt. You’ll solve puzzles and gather clues on land before setting sail along Crescent Lake.

But beware! For this be not for the faint of heart. Rumor has it there be cursed treasure around these parts. Be you brave enough to seek it?

Beginning April 28, 2019 set sail for Disney’s Beach Club Resort where Captain Hook is on the lookout for new recruits ages 4 to 12.   $55/ticket

ariel

WHAT???!!!  Did Captain Hook kill Queen Athena???

But, remember, he is a villain!

There’s a rumor that he killed Ariel’s mother, Queen Athena!

In 2008, “The Little Mermaid: Ariel’s Beginning” came out and answered the question about Queen Athena’s demise. In the movie’s opening scenes, the terrible tale of Queen Athena’s death by pirate invasion unfolds!

No wonder the mermaids in Neverland are frightened of the pirates who troll and terrorize their waters.  And, King Triton’s complete aversion to humans can be explained, considering humans caused his wife’s death.

Do you think that Queen Athena was killed by Captain Hook’s pirate ship?

****

Captain Hook is the dastardly evil pirate villain from Neverland.

Sailing the waters around the enchanted island of Neverland with his crew of misfits and idiots, Hook forever seeks the boy who has caused him so much pain and misery, Peter Pan. The Captain lost his left hand when Peter cut it off and fed it to the crocodile. Since then, the crocodile has been haunting Hook, always wanting more.

Luckily for Captain Hook, the crocodile also ate an alarm clock, so he can hear when the crocodile is near. His evil plans always fail, mainly due to the incompetence of not only himself, but of his downtrodden crew and first mate, Mr. Smee.

Seeing Hollywood’s Walk of Fame, Baby!

Oscars Hollywood

And the Oscar goes to……

When we go to Disneyland, we try not to just go to Disneyland (even though that’s pretty hard!)….there are lots of other things to do and see in LA.

Like strolling down the Walk of Fame on Hollywood Blvd.

You start on the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Vine Street in Hollywood and start walking west. [Trivia:  We live on Vine Street!]

There are over 2,600 stars embedded in the sidewalk in the 15 blocks of the Walk of Fame.  There’s a lot to see.

We were interested in seeing all the Disney ones and there are A LOT of those!

(Note:  The area just 1 block off Hollywood Blvd. is a very rough neighborhood!  Only do this walk during the day!)

Mickey Mouse blowing out the World Showcase torch. Magic Band, $27.99

IllumiNations, the nighttime fireworks spectacular that has been at Epcot for nearly 20 years, is ending September 30th with the new show Epcot Forever premiering October 1st.

illuminations1

Whoa.

The new Farewell merchandise arrived at Epcot yesterday.

The main logo for the merchandise features Mickey Mouse blowing out the World Showcase torch surrounded by fireworks. Of course, Mickey Mouse blowing out the torch is fitting because of the iconic opening of the show where the narrator blows out the torches at the end of the opening monologue.

The farewell collection can be found at Mouse Gear.
