Pirates of the Caribbean’s New Auction Scene … What’s Your Opinion? [Poll]

Have you seen it?  The Pirates of the Caribbean’s new auction scene is now “on line”.  Courtesy of a post presented by WDWMagic.com, check the new scene out on YouTube at their link …

The new auction scene in Pirates of the Caribbean!

As reported by WDWMagic, “The pirate auctioneer now oversees a sale of the townspeople’s most prized possessions and goods.  In this scene, the familiar redhead figure has switched sides to become a pirate named Redd, who’s just pillaged the town’s rum supply and has something to say about it.”

What are your thoughts, my friends?  Are you glad that Disney updated this scene?  Do you like the result that they have presented?  Would you like to have seen something else … something better?

Leave your comments on Facebook and on Twitter.  Plus, VOTE your mind in the poll below!  Its another mini-refurbishment from our friends at Walt Disney Imagineering, folks.  Did they hit a ‘home run’?  Or, did they deliver a ‘dud’?

Do We Have to Say “Buh-bye” to School Bread?

Oh, don’t panic, folks.  This post’s provocative title does not mean that Norway’s beloved School Bread is going to fade away into a Maelstrom-like abyss of Disney history.

According to a report found on WDWMagic.com, Epcot’s Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe will close for a major, several-month-long refurbishment on February 4th.

This being the case, will we have to, even temporarily, say “buh-bye” to Kringla’s sweet cardamom bun filled with vanilla custard?  Well, let me put your palates at ease … not at all!

Check out WDW Magic’s full report for all the details of this closure … as well as where in Epcot you’ll be able to find your favorite Norwegian treat!  Here’s the link!

Fittings & Fairings Under Major Refurb!

Fittings & Fairings Clothes & Notions – the gift shop in Disney’s Yacht Club Resort – is undergoing a major refurbishment, folks!

For those who are familiar with the shop, only the back half of the store (as you enter from the lobby’s direction) is open.

As we wait for Fittings to “return” in its full glory, check out the photos below!

Note the seating in the picture above!  For Guests, one of the things that Yacht Club has lacked is a satisfactory Quick Service location.  Could there be a decent option coming soon?

I don’t know about you, my friends, but Mrs. All in WDW and I can’t wait to see the completion of this transformation!

It’s a “Magic” [Country Bears] Make-Over!

Hello, everyone!  I meant to post these pictures the day I took them (which was a few weeks ago), but I just plain forgot.

All of the work could be complete by now, for all I know, but look!  The Country Bears are getting a “facelift”!

Does anyone know what Disney is doing under that well-themed facade?

Dining Recon: BoardWalk Bakery

I might be better off calling this post a “WDW update” rather than a dining recon as this establishment has been closed for quite a while now.  Hopefully this fine Quick Service will soon spring back into life. Well, it still “lives” in a manner of speaking, but it is only a shell of its old self. OK, not a shell – a tent.

In our opinion, one of the best Counter (Quick) Service meals in WDW is a turkey sandwich with chips from BoardWalk Bakery. Their turkey sandwich is huge! So large that …
