Money talks. We all know that in today’s society the amount of money you spend speaks volumes. Disney Parks are no different. It’d be naive to think that Disney execs are not monitoring what sells and what doesn’t only to make a new plan to bring in revenue. While some like to keep themselves distant from the [...]

It seems like Disney always has something new to collect. I remember years ago it was trading pins. You’d see guests (myself included) scour the shops for that hot pin, attend pin trading events, and create elaborate portfolios showcasing their treasures. As of lately, Mickey Ear Hats seem to be the next fad with a [...]

This has been the summer of the Main Street USA refurbishments.  I told you about the Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor’s makeover, but I want to ensure that we don’t overlook the changes next door – at the  Penny Arcade!  This area has received a new layout, a fresh coat of sparkling beauty, and had a [...]
