Magic Kingdom Parade/Fireworks Viewing Areas OpenMagic Kingdom Parade/Fireworks Viewing Areas Open
February 27, 2015
The Central Plaza area (the "Hub") at Magic Kingdom has been under renovations for several months, and now several new sections between Main Street U.S.A. and Cinderella Castle have opened. As a result, beginning February 27, a new viewing area for parades and fireworks is now available. The FastPass+ viewing location will relocate from the the Rose Garden Fireworks Viewing Area to the Main Street Plaza Gardens (an area adjacent to The Crystal Palace).

This marks the first milestone in the multi-phase project that will add in sculpted gardens, new pathways, and expanded restaurant seating.

Review: Disney's McFarland, USAReview: Disney's McFarland, USA
February 22, 2015
In competitive sports, like most other aspects of life, coaches will tell their players that if something is working, there's no need to change it. The same can be said of movie scriptwriting, too.

And Disney Pictures' newest film, "McFarland, USA," certainly lives up to this truism. But that's not a bad thing because, though the film is predictable from start to finish, it's still enjoyable entertainment for the family in the ways many other live-action Disney movies prove to be.

Back in December, the viewing procedure for Fantasmic! changed - instead of first come-first serve, where people could stake out spots hours in advance (and many did just that), it changed to a Fastpass system, similar to the way World of Color is done at Disney California Adventure. There are different viewing areas set up around the Rivers of America, and a Fastpass allows access to one of them.
