Map of rumored Night Kingdom park

Night Kingdom location?
   Interactive Google Map of this location

On the Magical Definition podcast with Nathan Rose, his guest claims that the "night kingdom" park will be built on top of the WDW land fill which is west of the Magic Kingdom. There was some discussions this morning about mainstream media reporting on the wild rumors about the park and they saw another mention about The Adventurer's Club being relocated and being the entrance for the park. Of course the main stream press saw the club mentioned and missed the moving part and reporting it as blogs saying that the new park will be near Pleasure Island. From the map below you can see there isn't room for a park near Pleasure Island.

Some have asked about the location in relation to the western way development. The below map should clear that up. The far left pushpin is the start of Western Way. The lowest pushpin is Animal Kingdom, and the top pushpin is the Magic Kingdom.

This is the one photo I liked the results of trying to make a HDR image. Of course I was using a Disney picture to try it out.

It was made back in Oct 2007. The original and modified pictures are after the jump.

Arby's Chocolate Turnover

Published by Mike at 8:55 PM under Social Networking | Arbys | Food | Twitter

So today I was the only one in the office at lunch time so I was going to lunch myself. I got to my car and then decided I wanted Arby's. Since it is a short distance I decided to walk to it instead of driving. As I was walking up I lamented on twitter about their new special turnover. Its a chocolate turnover with Hershey's chocolate. Since I walked I gave in (well easier than I would have if I had been lazy and drove) and got one of them for dessert.

Check out pictures and my thoughts on it after the jump

Decor/Hidden Mickey

Published by Mike at 5:40 PM under Disney | Hidden Mickey | VWL | DVC

In the first "real" post for my new blog I will be responding to this post.

VWL Decor MickeyI saw this in my feed this morning and was shocked at the similarity of the picture to one of mine from years ago, which is posted to the left.

 

I never submitted it to Hidden Mickeys Guide because it is what I thought he would call a "Decor Mickey", which is a Mickey shape that is not really hidden but visible as part of the decor/design of a location. The one shown here to the left and the linked article are VERY visible. You can see more of where they are in this  picture to the right.VWL Hallway

 

From the picture on the right you can see the VWL (Villa at Wilderness Lodge) hallway. This picture is one of the alcoves with rooms off it on both sides. The decor Mickeys are all down the hall.

Although these are what I would call decor Mickey the Villas do have several hidden Mickeys in them. I will post some of those below.
