Mousesteps Weekly #200: Part 2 of Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party Discussion; PizzeRizzo; Minnie's Halloween Dine
I usually don't remember to post our Mousesteps Weekly YouTube shows on the website, but I wanted to make sure to share #200. You can find all 200 of our episodes at this link, including last week (#199) when we talked all about Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. This week, we continue that discussion and then add in a look at PizzeRizzo construction and Minnie's Halloween Dine at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Below our show, you can read about the different segments. Thank you for watching and supporting Mousesteps Weekly, I can't believe we have recorded 200 shows now! And thanks also to MEI Travel/Mouse Fan Travel for their sponsorship, we recommend them for your Disney vacation travel (as well as destinations around the world).
Minnie's Halloween Dine is the newest Minnie's Seasonal Dine buffet offering at Hollywood & Vine located in Disney's Hollywood Studios. Minnie, Mickey, Donald, Daisy and Goofy all debuted new Halloween costumes for the meal! The buffet is decent, Jeff enjoyed it more than I did - really, the big draw here is the characters and their new costumes. Where else can you see Donald Duck dressed as an astronaut? Here is a look at both the characters and food, along with more information about the experience. The price says $46.99 per adult and $27.99 per child (ages 3-9) online, but our two meals were $48.00 plus tax and gratuity each (we did receive a 10% off Disney Visa discount, and the restaurant also takes Tables in Wonderland). This is a one table service credit entitlement on the Disney Dining Plan, which is a good value if you are on it.
We also talk about the experience on Mousesteps Weekly #200, which is at the end of the article.
Remy's Ratatouille Hide & Squeak is Back at Epcot's Food & Wine Festival: Spoiler Free Review with Spoilers at End
Remy's Ratatouille Hide & Squeak is back for the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. It's very much the same as last year, though more challenging. I've been asked if the pins are the same, they are not - similar, but different for 2016. The price is $8.99 plus tax for the map and the prize (which is the pin), we did receive a discount with our annual pass. This article will be spoiler free until the video, which is full of spoilers for those who want them - and then there are a few spoiler photos too after that.
The Epcot International Food & Wine Festival runs between September 14th and November 14th, 2016.
PizzeRizzo Construction Progress - Muppets Themed Restaurant at Disney's Hollywood Studios (& Gonzo's Royal Flush)
We were at Disney's Hollywood Studios yesterday for Minnie's Halloween Dine (article coming later), and stopped by PizzeRizzo - and at the same time, the upcoming Gonzo's Royal Flush construction progress. Our last update was a few weeks ago (just on PizzeRizzo), focusing on the concept art. There are a few changes to that, a couple I'll mention here. The Disney Parks Blog said about the location, "Walt Disney Imagineering hid hints of Rizzo, his extended family and friends who have visited PizzeRizzo over the years throughout the two-story quick-service location."
150 Photos (w/Videos) from Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2016, Including Mickey's Boo-To-You Parade, Characters, HalloWishes
Last week, I posted an article with 19 tips for enjoying Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party 2016. We have been to two parties, taken tons of photos and video, and I'm sharing about 150 photos here (as well as our videos). This is the 10th year that Mousesteps has brought you Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party!
The photos are on two pages, the second page is here.
This article was updated on Sepember 9th, 2016
We have attended the first two Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party nights of 2016, and there are some real changes since last year. My tips articles don't usually change significantly from year to year, but 2016 is different. I've been attending Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party for most years since the mid-90s, usually more than once per year. There are some videos embedded in this article as well.
Here are my tips for 2016! We also now have 150 photos with more videos here.
Mickey's Royal Friendship Faire at Magic Kingdom Adds Autumn Finale, Modified Version of "Vive La Vie" Song from Disneyland Paris
Mickey's Royal Friendship Faire debuted a few months back at the Magic Kingdom, and a new autumn finale has already been added. It's terrific to not only see new costume pieces, but to hear a modified version of "Vive La Vie" from Mickey's Halloween Celebration Parade (La Célébration Halloween de Mickey) from Disneyland Paris. It is one of my favorite songs from the Disney parks, and I not only look forward to hearing it again not only in the Magic Kingdom, but in it's original form at Disneyland Paris in a few weeks (I posted the parade at the end of the article). I hope there are other seasonal versions around the year!
