NEW Star Wars Hyper-Reality Experience coming to Disneyland & Disney World

Attention Star Wars Fans!!!!!

Today Disney Parks Blog announced that The VOID (an entertainment company that combines the magic of illusions and advanced technology) will be bringing a groundbreaking, hyper-reality experience to Downtown Disney in Disneyland and Disney Springs in Walt Disney World.Star_Wars_Hyper-Reality_Experience-01Although no official dates or locations have been announced, this holiday season these immersive social experiences will take visitors to new worlds.

Disney parks blog states that, “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire will transport you to a galaxy far, far away where you’ll be able to engage with friends, family and Star Wars characters through sight, sound, touch, smell, and motion. It’ll even allow environmental effects to be felt using Haptic feedback – melding the physical and digital worlds together. So, you don’t just see the Star Warsuniverse, you’re part of it at Disney Parks”.

If you have ever played a video game with a remote control that vibrates, then you are no stranger to Haptic feedback that brings you right into the action.

This one-of-a-kind experience is not to be missed by Star Wars fans of all ages and I will be thrilled to try this in person in just a matter of months.

Disney promised more announcments in the future, so stay tuned.
In the meantime… contact me if you would like to plan a Star Wars immersive vacation.

Holiday Cupcakes in Hollywood Studios

What to do while we sit & wait for the new Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! show to begin…  We buy cupcakes of course.  There are 2 special holiday cupcakes in Hollywood Studios right now each at the price of $5.59 These came from the ABC Commissary quick service restaurant.

The first treat an autumn harvest cupcake made of pumpkin spice cake and topped with maple cream frosting and granola.  Sitting an the peak of this deliciousness is a white chocolate Mickey Mouse in perfect scarecrow attire.

The second cupcake is a dark chocolate Olaf cupcake filled & topped with marshmallow fluff.  The Olaf head is made of smooth white chocolate and he smiles & waits to melt in your mouth.

Even though I am not a chocolate fan, my favorite of the 2 cupcakes was the Olaf Chocolate cake.  My husband and son liked the pumpkin spice cake better so it’s obviously a matter of personal taste.  Be sure to pick one of these up on your next trip to Hollywood Studios, you can even pay with a snack credit if you are on the dining plan.  😉
