Disney Store 25% Off Many Items Including Zootopia With Friends & Family Discount: Star Wars, RunDisney, Lion Guard, Orange Bird, H20+ Through February 15th, 2016
The Disney Store is having a 25% off sale - on most items - through February 15th, 2016 with code DISNEYPAL! I price checked about 25 items to give you an idea of what merchandise can be discounted and how much you can save. Merchandise can sell out, and shirt sizes can go quickly. The earlier the better to get the best deals. Merchandise here includes Zootopia, Lion Guard, runDisney, H20+, Star Wars and more! Any purchase you make through Mousesteps does help support us, thank you!
I can't wait to see Zootopia, and this Judy Hopps 15" Plush goes from $14.95 to $11.21.
Limited Release Figment Epcot Flower & Garden & Pirate Mickey and Minnie Shirts at Disney Store Online
Several new limited release shirts came out today from Disney Parks at the Disney Store online. The first is a Figment t-shirt for the Epcot Flower & Garden Festival. There is certainly a possibility that this will show up next month at the Festival, though I haven't seen merchandise photos for 2016 yet. This shirt is available through February 22nd, 2016 through the Disney Store. The other two shirts are of Mickey and Minnie in their classic poses, part of a monthly series. This month, Mickey and Minnie are wearing Pirates of the Caribbean clothing. Those shirts are available to order through February 14th, 2016. Most limited release shirts take 3-5 weeks to receive, the Figment one does not say that (the Mickey and Minnie shirts do). Any purchase made at the Disney Store through Mousesteps does help support us, thank you!
Here is information on the Figment shirt.

"Zootopia" Concept Art Display Promotes Upcoming Film at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park (Photos, Video)
Zootopia concept art and information is currently being presented at Disney's Animal Kingdom Park within Conservation Station, in an exhibit titled "Discovering Disney Zootopia at Conservation Station". It's nice to see a concept art display even after Magic of Disney Animation at Disney's Hollywood Studios closed, we've been following the animation displays for years (the last display at DHS was Disney-Pixar's Inside Out). While smaller in scale, there are still 30+ pieces of concept art as well as facts about the movie. Zootopia was researched not only in Africa, but at Disney's Animal Kingdom park and Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge. Zootopia opens on March 4th, 2016 and stars Jason Bateman voicing fox Nick Wilde and Ginnifer Goodwin voicing bunny Judy Hopps. Alan Tudyk plays Duke Weaselton, a reference to his Frozen character, The Duke of Weselton. Now on to the concept art and videos!
Disney's Animal Kingdom Photo Update, February 6th 2016 - Avatar, Rivers of Light, Characters, "Zootopia" Display
We went to Disney's Animal Kingdom yesterday to visit Yak & Yeti, check out the new Zootopia exhibit at Conservation Station (here is a separate article for that) and see what is new around the park - including any changes to what is visible with the upcoming Avatar land and Rivers of Light.
Just a few days back, we posted an article with photos of current Disney Springs construction from the ground. I recently had purchased a Groupon for Characters in Flight, and yesterday ended up being a perfect day to use it. The day was a little bright, but it was one of the nicest days we've had here recently. The view is remarkable, seeing the overall progress from the air. There is still a lot to be done, I'm not sure when the real completion date will be - meaning not just completing the exteriors, but when all the buildings will be occupied. This is about the fourth time we've photographed from Characters in Flight over the past year and a half.
Disney Springs Photo Update - January 22nd, 2016 - Including World of Coca-Cola, Town Center & Planet Hollywood Construction
Disney Springs looks different during each visit, even since my last stop less than 2 weeks ago. This is the first time we've seen water added around the Town Center area, and the World of Coca-Cola is also progressing quickly. There is still much to open this year, including Sprinkles Cupcakes and Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza.
Here is a look around Disney Springs yesterday!
Star Wars Day at Sea on the Disney Fantasy: Tips & What to Expect on Your Voyage Through the Galaxy (w/Photos, Video)
We just returned from 7 nights on the Disney Fantasy, where we experienced Star Wars Day at Sea. There are a total of 8 Star Wars day at Sea sailings through April, including the one we were on. I am a casual Star Wars fan - I enjoy the films (most of them), and have attended most Star Wars Weekends - but I'm not a superfan.
I tried to keep my expectations somewhat low for the cruise, since this was the first of its kind at sea. And in most ways, Disney exceeded what I was hoping for. It wasn't a perfect day, but I thought Disney overall did a pretty solid job. We did pay fully for our cruise, booking as soon as we learned about it. It ended up being a pretty reasonably priced cruise, even without a Florida Resident discount - the same stateroom category would have cost nearly $2,000 more as the cruise neared.
What can you expect from Star Wars Day at Sea? Here are some thoughts and tips from the first sailing (including our Mousesteps Weekly YouTube Show #172 at the end of the article). There are a lot of spoilers here. We didn't experience everything, skipping trivia and not making it to Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple in particular. I expect each sailing to be very similar, but things can change. And I should have another article including many more photos on Thursday or Friday.
