Weekly Round Up: May 8

Innoventions Entrance

Welcome to the second week of May. This week is going to be pretty epic, as we’re introducing the first of four new columnists! On Wednesday, you’ll meet Jeff, a recent Orlando transplant who’s cutting his Mouse on the Mind teeth with a review of the new Vision House in Epcot.

Later in the week, Tracy’s tackling the Disney fan’s least favorite phrase. (Bet you can guess what it is!) And Melissa Sue will take a look at two films inspired by the screenwriter’s trip to Disney Parks. We hope you’ll join us!

We’d also like to direct your attention to the new menu feature on Touring Plans. They’re quite comprehensive and regularly updated, so we’ve added them to our list of Planning Tools so you can access them whenever you want!

Us … Elsewhere
Tracy is still roaming California, but she wrote this week about low cost souvenirs. You can also follow her as she travels on her live blog, Virtual Passenger.

Melissa Sue hasn’t been doing much guest blogging lately. She’s been busy gearing up for Epcot’s 30th Illuminations Dessert Party. And she’s preparing for some absolutely gluttonous eating around the World Showcase with the The DFB Mini-Guide to Epcot Snacks e-book.

She’s also been helping out with the editing and proof-reading on WDWNT The Magazine’s Issue 14. There’s some great content in this issue, so make sure to check it out.

Our Favorites This Week
With the recent enforcement of FastPass return times, Josh at Easy WDW has put together a primer on using Passes with minimal cross-park walking.

Kristen, also known as DVC Mom, posted a lovely photo series from Harambe Village in Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

In Delicious Disney news, Tutto Italia reopened this week along with the new Tutto Gusto, a wine cellar. Of course Disney Food Blog’s AJ was on hand for the ceremony, and we officially can’t wait to visit Gusto!

Estelle has a birthday wish for Hollywood Studios on This Happy Place Blog.

Welcome back, Hipsters! The boys have returned from their inaugural pilgrimage to Disnelyand, and they’re busting myths lefts and write. (Pun!)

Richard Terpstra has done it again: Melissa Sue’s lusting after this rainbow tee. If anyone’s got the UPC number, let us know!!

We are so fully digging this rendition of “I See the Light” performed by Nick Pitera. Why isn’t this man voicing cartoons? And thank you to The Disney Blog for sharing the video with us.
