New Lap Bars for Splash Mountain

Splash Mountain opened a few days ago after a month-long refurbishment, and the popular water ride received new lap bars as part of its update. The reason for the addition of the bars? To prevent guests from standing up during the ride or exiting the log boats earlier than instructed.

Vinylmation Villains: At a Store Near You

There are some of us who don't entirely get the Disney Vinylmation phenomenon. However, there must be some collectors out there who do, because Disney Vinylmation has recently released a new villains collection.

The Mickey-shaped pieces depict a host of those Disney characters who lurk on the dark side, including the fur-loving Cruella DeVille and the witch that plagued Snow White. Each piece costs right around $10 and are readily available online or in Disney stores across the country.

Disney World, GoWalla and you

Do you GoWalla? Disney Parks and GoWalla have joined together in an unprecedented partnership -- it's what many are calling a "major win" for the location-based service.

Photo Tour: AquaDuck on the Disney Dream

A friend of ours just returned from a cruise on the brand new Disney Dream cruise ship and sent over this great review of the AquaDuck -- the cruise industry's first water coaster on a ship!

Thanks to WDWFG for the chance to rave about this incredible water coaster. The AquaDuck may seem like a kids' ride to some, but I was surprised to note that the concept was terrifying to many. Not a lot of folks want to hang out above the ocean with only a thin piece of plastic between them and an 150 foot drop!
