Weekly Round Up: August 25

2015-08-23 15.23.46Summer … it is almost over! Uuuugh!! Dan and I spent the weekend with George roaming around NY and NJ, trying to soak up as much sun as possible. And I found this abandoned little baby Mickey in our travels. Cute (and more than a little sad)!

A new section of the Hub garden opened this week. And probably some other things happened, but it feels like a real slow news week coming off the D23 Expo hoopla, don’t you think? In MotM news, this week, I’ll continue writing about my recent sailing on the Disney Dream as well as a creepy new theme park and hopes and dreams for Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

What are you up to? Tell me about it!

One Little Spark of Inspiration
Tom, who runs Disney Demystified, offered a great round up of what wasn’t announced during the D23 Expo.

Jen of EPBOT found the most amazing Star Wars / Beauty and the Beast cosplay mashup. Looooove!

On Vulture, Greg shared some news that super pissed me off: George Lucas based Jar Jar on one of my favorite Disney characters. WTF?!

Jess shares some bright, colorful and fun photos that really capture the spirit of Finding Nemo The Musical on Sparkly Ever After.

On Main Street Gazette, Ryan shares a fun and nearly forgotten (by me) hallmark of the Fort Wilderness experience. (Also of note: Ryan and MSG celebrated their anniversary this week. Congrats!)

Jessica shared an epic Muppets / Disney video mashup that I’m totally crushing on via The Mary Sue.

Mmmmm is for lobster mac and cheese, which Sarah tried at DAK’s Beastly Kiosk and shared on Eating WDW.
