A lot of us have always wondered what it's like to have a wedding at Disney World, but we have one major issue in the way: We're already married!

New Concept Art for 'Mickey's Soundsational Parade' Revealed

Who doesn't love a good parade? The folks at Disney seem to understand this and are getting ready to debut a new parade at Disneyland next month. Late last week, some new artist images depicting scenes from the upcoming "Mickey's Soundsational Parade" were released.

Disney has described the new parade as a "giant jam session" complete with Mickey banging it out on a "live, acoustic drum set." The images detail a "Princes and the Frog" float plus a dancer's costume.

Royal Wedding to be Broadcast at Dolphin Resort

The upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton are a hot topic these days, and Disney is gearing up to put its mark on the royal wedding. Disney's Dolphin Resort is set to turn their lobby into the go-to spot for taking in the highly anticipated exchange of vows.

Starting at 5 a.m. April 29, the Dolphin will broadcast the wedding live on large screens in its lobby. The wedding ceremony itself begins at 6 a.m. (which is 11 a.m. in England).

Where in the World? WDW Photo Hunt

Over on our WDW for Grownups forums, the Where in the World thread is becoming more and more popular as we members try to stump one another with obscure photos taken in Walt Disney World!

We figured it might be fun to post a few here as well! You'll see below six photos taken in Walt Disney World. Can you guess where each of these pictures is from? We'll post the answers in tomorrow's article!

By the way -- here's a hint: Only one of the photos was taken at a resort hotel. The rest are in the parks!

Ice Cube's 'Chrome and Paint' Picked Up By Disney

No one would call it traditional Disney movie-fare, but Disney's move to pick up Ice Cube's "Chrome and Paint" fits in with top studio execs Rich Ross and Sean Bailey and their attempts to expand Disney's film repertoire.

Ice Cube is reportedly set to star in, produce and direct the car culture drama along side Matt Alvarez and also takes credit as screenwriter along with Eva Vives.
