Parking in Downtown Disney

If you have been to Downtown Disney in Orlando, Florida recently, you must know that there is some construction going on. Downtown Disney will be expanding and will soon be called Disney Springs. For this to happen, construction needs to happen and thus, parking in Downtown Disney is not as ample as it used to be. Disney is recommending that Disney Resort hotel Guests take advantage of complimentary (free!) transportation options (why not, right?!). Guests not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, who are driving to Downtown Disney in their own vehicles, should follow the parking signs. Keep in mind that available parking may be across the street from Downtown Disney. Be sure to allow extra time so you can fit in all of your fun.

Come Stay at the Toy Story Hotel

Would you like to stay at a hotel themed after the movie Toy Story? You'll have to go to Shanghai. The opening of Shanghai Disney Resort will include a Toy Story Hotel. The exterior will resemble the look of the wallpaper from the main character, Andy's bedroom. And of course, in the middle of the entrance will be a Pixar ball, as the movie is a Pixar film. It sounds like it would be a fun place to stay!

Disney Christmas Attractions at Singapore Changi Airport

An airport in Singapore has a neat idea. Bring Disney to its travelers. Changi Airport has Disney-themed attractions in its terminals until January 2, 2015. Travelers can see Mickey Mouse, a castle that inspired the Disney castles of Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella, and take a train ride. Guests can also enjoy topiary displays and even feel like they are in NYC as Terminal 1 is done up Broadway-style. Kids have an opportunity to do origami, work on a mural, and enjoy a ball pit with a slide. Expect to see shows with lights and music as well as stage performances. Six limited edition Mickey and Minnie plush toys will also gradually be made available to collect. Sounds like a blast and perhaps a way for the airport to make some money too!

Shop for Left-Handed Gifts in Downtown Disney in Orlando, Florida

Are you looking for a thoughtful gift to get that leftie in your life? Or maybe you yourself are left-handed. I am and didn't know there was a special store for lefties right in Downtown Disney. How awesome!

The store is called Lefties - The Left Hand Store. If it sounds familiar to any West Coasters, the main store is actually based in San Francisco. The Downtown Disney kiosk has a limited selection of items but is still probably worthwhile to check out.

Or visit the website at

Some of the products:
  • Left-handed scissors (of course)
  • Left-handed notebook for kids (Huh? at first but this notebook actually opens from the left side so that left hands don't get tired from being on the spiral part as they write). Pretty cool!
  • Pens with quick-drying ink (I think most lefties who've been around while can relate to the smudging pens would leave from writing. Everyone in school begging to write with a pen - not me, pencil please!) Though I think ink has gotten better with drying faster, something to have at least for old times sake :-)
