I agree--that sample figurine looks like it might come to life while you're asleep and kill you! (It would make a particularly creepy voodoo doll, as well.)

Probably a smart thing that they put an age limit on it. I can see some older male TPR members doing this for the fun of it. I don't think Disney would like that.

^And there would be other adults who would do this for more than just "fun."

http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2012/08/phineas-and-ferb-you-a-brand-new-reality-opens-at-downtown-disney-at-walt-disney-world-resort-september-1/

First there were “Phineas & Ferb” character meet and greets at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Then Agent P’s World Showcase Adventure opened at Epcot. Now, the brothers will invade another area of Walt Disney World Resort: Beginning September 1, guests of all ages can participate in a complimentary augmented reality offering at Downtown Disney called “Phineas and Ferb & YOU: A Brand New Reality.”

The experience, which will take place next to Bongos Cuban Café, will allow guests to step onto a platform and virtually interact with Phineas, Ferb, Dr. Doof and Agent P (in their animated forms) on a screen above. Fans can expect to experience any one of 20 different interactions, from dancing “The Platypus Walk” to getting caught in Dr. Doof’s Freeze-inator.

Disney is known in the running industry for its cool race medals, so it should come as no surprise that runDisney has pulled out all of the stops in designing a medal for next year’s 20th anniversary Walt Disney World Marathon, January 10-13. The medal was revealed this morning after a two-week social media campaign called “The Great Medal Caper” in which fans such as you got to unlock clues to eventually unveil the medal.

Trust me, this medal is unlike anything we have created before. It has the traditional round shape, but it features two spinning parts, including a medallion with a classic image of Mickey Mouse on one side and a modern image of him on the other side. The other cool features are two engraved quotes from Walt Disney himself.

And to think, all you have to do to get one of them is run 26.2 miles. Better start training now! But don’t forget to sign up for the race first at runDisney.com.

The theming of the latest wing of Disney’s Art of Animation Resort is so detailed and fun that its impossible to walk through the area without humming a song – any song – from Disney’s “The Lion King.”

The new Lion King courtyard, which officially opens today, allows guests to step into the adventure of Simba the lion cub, with landscapes and theming that reflect the fun scenes from the film.

Here, Pumbaa and Timon dance with a young Simba across a log bridge. King Mufasa towers atop Pride Rock while his evil brother Scar slinks in the shadows and his hyenas friends gaurd the elephant graveyard.

The fun continues inside each of the 320 family suites. Here, a figure of Zazu decorates the headboard, and Pumba and Timon appear on the shower curtain.

Previous wings of the resort, themed after “Cars” and “Finding Nemo,” opened earlier this year. The final wing of the resort, which is themed after “The Little Mermaid” and offers 864 rooms, will open September 15.

Which area sounds most appealing to you?

I'm glad that the Lion King is still relevant enough to theme a portion of a hotel after.

I like the look of the rooms, but they all (Nemo and Cars ones included) look like something you could DIY if you had any carpentry/design skills. There is a good and bad thing about that. Maybe there are some things they had to have custom made, like the shower tile, but other things like the chairs n whatnot look bought. From the floor to the bedspread to the dressers, nothing looks entirely cohesive.

I realize that's still more effort than the average hotel room.

With the right skills (or just watching a weekend marathon of home shows), you could probably replicate any room on property. Just sayin'.

Am I the only one who absolutely dislikes (hate is a strong word, I love WDW too much) the design of the carpet in the Lion King room? :lmao:
