Sunday Round-Up for January 23, 2011

So much news about the Disney Dream and the new promotion for this year, I thought I'd highlight some posts that covered some of the less well-traveled topics:

Imagineering Disney has a great post on World Showcase, then and now. As much as I don't like many of the changes that come to WDW, it's interesting to see how little has changed in many places.

Is Johnny Depp the Next Oz?

They have a director on board plus a unit production manager, but the question these days seems to be who will play the great wizard in Disney's Oz, the Great and Powerful. Robert Downey, Jr., was slated to play the lead, but has reportedly backed out of the production.

Remodeled Bathrooms in Magic Kingdom Make a Splash

Restrooms. We all use them; we all want them to be clean, modern, and "Disney-esque." And there's a newly remodeled set of restrooms in the Magic Kingdom that we think are pretty snazzy. Snazzy enough, in fact, to give them a shout-out!

These are the restrooms located in that little underpass between Adventureland and Frontierland, and Disney World has recently updated them to reflect rich Arabian themeing. We have a few photos of the women's restroom (clearly the best choice, we think!) to give you an idea of the changes.

Disney Dream Christened

It was a day of magic for Disney Cruise Line's long-awaited newest ship. January 19 saw the Disney Dream christened in a lavish and grand ceremony which featured celebrities, top Disney executives and the Mouse himself.

Multi-talented actress and singer Jennifer Hudson was on hand as the Dream's godmother. A very fitting choice was Ms. Hudson as her Oscar- and Grammy-winning career started in 2003 aboard the Dream's sister ship, the Wonder.

"The Magic, the Memories and You" Premiere Pictures and Video

Disney premiered their new promotion for 2011 on Tuesday night, "The Magic, the Memories and You." The show basically uses Cinderella's Castle as a canvas on which to project a variety of special effect that make a compelling visual effect. It will also feature 500 photos from guests who use the PhotoPass service during the day.

Chocolate, Wine & Romance, Waldorf-Astoria Style

Just in time for Valentine's Day, the swanky Waldorf-Astoria Orlando will be hosting Chocolate, Wine & Romance weekends first on February 12-13 and again February 19-20.

The upscale hotel is featuring special pricing for these luxurious getaways where guests have plenty of opportunities to indulge in wine and chocolate. As an added bonus, the hotel is within the gates of Walt Disney World which enables guests to indulge in some fun as well.

Disney World 40th Anniversary Merchandise Now in Parks

Walt Disney World will be celebrating its 40th Anniversary in 2011, and new commemorative merchandise has already taken over the parks! Here are a few of our favorite items we spotted...

"Toy Story 3" Nabs Best Animated Feature Golden Globe

The Disney-Pixar smash hit "Toy Story 3" not only walked away with auidences' hearts this year, but also came away with the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature at Sunday night's 68th Annual Golden Globe Awards.

Though it was predicted to be a sure-bet win for "Toy Story 3", the film beat out several others for the top animated prize, including Disney's "Tangled."

Disney Bridal Showcase Coming in March

If you've ever dreamed of a Disney wedding, you might want to mark your calendar. Walt Disney World's Grand Floridian Resort and Spa will host a very special Bridal Showcase March 18 - 20.

Couples thinking of tying the knot at Walt Disney World will be given the opportunity to learn all about Disney weddings. Tours of areas used for ceremonies and receptions are a highlight of the Showcase.
