Mousesteps Weekly #117 – Escape from Gringotts; Vintage Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party; Orlando Eye; “Frozen” at Walt Disney World

Hi everyone!

In Mousesteps Weekly #117, we talk about Escape from Gringotts at Universal Orlando; share vintage Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party footage; stop at the Orlando Eye construction area; and talk about the “Frozen” changes coming to Walt Disney World. Keep reading after the show for more information!

In Mousesteps Weekly #117 we talk about:

Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts at Universal Studios Orlando. We hadn’t ridden it until now, with the crowds being down for the slow season. The queue and ride both receive two thumbs up from us! We share a detailed look at the first portion of the queue with the animatronic goblins.

Next, we stop at the Orlando Eye location at I-Drive Live. The Orlando Eye is set to open in spring of 2015, alongside Madame Tussauds and SeaLife Aquarium.

We then take an extended look back at vintage Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, including Mickey’s Boo-to-You Parade! It has changed quite a bit over the years. Most of the footage is from ten years ago in 2004.

Last, we talk about how “Frozen” has been officially announced to take over Maelstrom at Epcot; about how Anna and Elsa will join Olaf for the Cinderella Castle lighting, and that the “Frozen” characters will be part of Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade.

Recorded 09/18/14 Featuring Commentary from Denise Preskitt and Jeff Lange.
