I feel like I should chime in a bit here, if we're looking more at Disney's Target Demograhic Kristen LOVES the flashlight on Monsters and the light you can control on 20k Leagues. She even bought one of the flashlights they sell in the Monsters Gift Shop! For adults, we get that it doesn't really do much, but for kids, they love doodads and having control and those are two of her favorite rides at the resort. That being said, next month she SHOULD be tall enough for Journey and Raging Spirits so I'm hoping at least Journey will take her top spot!

From the blog:

Disney Parks Blog

"Our friends at Tokyo Disneyland just announced that a new version of Jungle Cruise – Jungle Cruise: Wildlife Expeditions – will debut at the park this fall.
Jungle-Cruise-Elephants

The attraction has been popular with Tokyo Disneyland guests since the park opened in 1983. The new version will feature enhanced special effects and lighting, new original music, and a new “nighttime” version that will offer guests a thrilling new look at the jungle.
Jungle Cruise: Wildlife Expeditions will officially open at the park September 8, 2014."

This is pretty vague... I wonder if there will be more involved then they are letting on. I mean, if its just a small plus to the ride, they don't normally publicize them. They didn't with adding music to Space in Florida, and they didn't when they added new effects to Indy in California. So, I am thinking there will be more to come on this.

The first ever Oswald The Lucky Rabbit meet & greet at a Disney park opened up at Tokyo DisneySea today and we just happened to be there for the first day! Check out some of these photos and video of the experience:

Hey look! It's Oswald the Lucky Rabbit! His first ever Disney Park Meet & Greet is here at Tokyo DisneySea!

For those of you who might now know, Oswald is the cartoon character Walt created before Mickey, but was owned by other studios. In 2006, Disney bought the rights to Oswald back so he could be part of the Disney library.

Here's what the Meet & Greet looks like - It's in the Cape Cod area around the corner from the Duffy meet & greet.

Smile! You're with Oswald!

Now it's our turn to meet the guy!

Hope other Disney parks will also add Oswald as this would be also a photo-op for Disney and animation fans of all ages...

I like how he does that 1920s' style cartoon-character dance when you walk up.
