Let's Trade When we go to Disney this is what my girls get excited about!! They love finding cast members and trading for theie favorites. They always leave the ones they are collecting at home. I take a picture with my cell, then they know which ones they already have. On this trip my youngest finished one of the sets she was collecting. My oldest is working on her Haunted Mansion collection. It is such a treasure hunt. Pin trading adds a little extra magic for them.

Back then, Iger had mentioned that, “the attractions, the entertainment, [and] everything we create will be part of our storytelling. Nothing will be out of character or stray from the mythology.” Picture: complete immersion. Fast forward to February 2017, when Iger announced that both the Star Wars Land in Disney’s Hollywood Studios (DHS) in Walt Disney World (WDW)
Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is the flagship resort at Walt Disney World. This Victorian style resort makes me think of two words: sophistication and elegance. The resort is located near Magic Kingdom and is part of the monorail loop. The inspiration of the resort comes from San Diego’s Hotel Del Coronado.
