In Mousesteps Weekly #266, we talk about the following topics:
We head to Disney California Adventure for Part 2 of our Pixar Fest coverage. We start out by showing some of the merchandise, and then head to Cars Land to see cars Woody and Buzz as well as the special posters made for the event. We then head to the Pixar Pals area and meet 11 characters, including Flik and Atta along with Mr. and Mrs. Incredible.
We talk about the Paint the Night Parade while showing a variety of floats. From Slinky Dog to Mack the Truck (he is 54 feet long!), most floats and elements made the move from Disneyland park.
We left California a day earlier than originally planned to attend the Flavor by Loews event at Portofino Bay Hotel, located at the Universal Orlando Resort. The premise of Flavor by Loews is that guests can enjoy local flavors at the resort, including Duomo Gelato from Tampa and Crooked Can beer from Winter Garden. It is a really nice way to try local and not have to leave your resort to do it. Afterwards, we went to Harbor Nights, which is an event that happens 4-5 times per year and has become a very popular evening out in Orlando.
Our last stop is Epcot, and we visited twice this past week. During those trips, we found Royal Wedding merchandise at the United Kingdom pavilion, checked out the Ratatouille construction in France, and also the new Guardians of the Galaxy roller coaster construction wall art in Future World.
