Fighting the Urge

As a Disney blogger, I find myself staying up-to-date with all the latest news about Disney - the parks, movies, heck - I even get updates about the stock options (wish I had bought some as a child!).  And now, with the Fantasyland Expansion gearing up for it's official grand opening on December 6th, there are pictures everywhere.
I'm guilty of taking pictures as well!
Twitter, facebook, podcasts - people are talking about it wherever I turn (maybe not you - you may not listen to Disney podcasts.  But, why don't you?  They're awesome!).  I'm curious to see dining reviews - should I keep my dinner ADR for Be Our Guest, or will lunch be sufficient?

But from here on out, I'm going to try to ignore all the pictures of the updates.  I've seen the new Casey Junior Splash and Soak - amazing water play area - and I've heard about so much, but I want to see it for the first time in person.

I know starting with the soft opening in mid-November, there will be pictures and reviews everywhere, but I'm going to try to wait.

Who's with me?


  1. I used to be up to date on all the Disney going ons but now with a six month old I just don't have the time. We are taking her for her first trip in January and I am a little worried I will be so out of the loop and miss things. I think you should do a post about the expansion with things not to miss.

  2. I'll do that just for you :)

  3. I am looking at some of the photos but not going overboard. I will be there in November and want to see as much 'new' as possible. The only reason I look at a few photos is to know what I might be navigating around.

  4. We have been watching the progress over the edge of the fence for the last month and I have to say it is amazing at how fast they work! But even we have stopped trying to take pictures over the fence, I want that moment of Magic, that awe that comes from the first time in person.... So we are waiting here as well, which is hard when we go there at least to 4 times a week....
