    Imagineer Michel Dulk shared a little bit of what guests can expect at the Royal Hall.“After walking into our main entrance, you will first go through a garden-like setting before entering the reception hall,” said Michel Den Dulk, Creative Director of Fantasy Faire for Walt Disney Imagineering. “Once inside the Royal Hall, guests will discover a beautiful gothic interior with nice wallpaper, wall cresting, wood finishes and chandeliers.”

    The 2013 Tinker Bell Half Marathon weekend kicks into high gear January 18 - 20, 2013. If conditions will be anything like last year's inaugural race, then you might want to take special considerations into planning a visit.

    First, the parks are likely to be very busy. With more than 21,000 runners in the race you can expect there to be quite a high volume of people when you count in their family and supporters. Additionally, road closures around the Resort can also impact getting to and around the area.

    Our Complete Guide to the Tinker Bell Half Marathon will give you the low down of what to expect whether you're participating in the race or just happen to be there for the weekend. It's definitely best to Be in the Know Before You Go!

    Disney Cruise Line hosted local port officials and community leaders onboard the 2,700 passenger Disney Wonder for a plaque exchange ceremony last week. These ceremonies are a maritime tradition and an opportunity for the Captain and the ship’s officers to celebrate the inaugural call on a new port, as well as for local officials and leaders to welcome the ship and guests to the community.

    This is the first time a Disney ship will have a regional homeport in southern Florida, allowing families from this area to take advantage of departing from a port close to their own backyard.

    This past Friday night, the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood played host once again to Peter Pan with a special live panel featuring people involved with the film. Leonard Maltin moderated a panel with Kathryn Beaumont (voice of Wendy and Alice in Wonderland), Margaret Kerry (live-action reference model for Tinker Bell), and Ted Thomas (documentarian and son of Frank Thomas who animated Captain Hook).

    It was a special evening that also included a seemingly mis-matched yet relevant never-before-seen-before screening of an episode of Jake and the Neverland Pirates as well as a live appearance by Jake himself. Once that was concluded, the beautifully restored film was presented on the giant silver screen; perhaps clearer, brighter, and more vivid than ever before.

    Perhaps it was fitting that on the 20th annual of the Walt Disney World Marathon that the greatest champion in the event’s history – Brazil’s Adriano Bastos – reclaimed his place in the victory circle Sunday.

    Bastos, who had won seven previous Disney Marathons, including six straight before losing the last two to countryman Fredison Costa, this time held off Costa down the stretch for his eighth victory at the place Where Dreams Come True.

    Renee High continued the trend of repeat champions by finishing as the top female runner for the second straight year. High of Virginia Beach, Va., ran the 26.2-mile race through all four Disney theme parks, the Disney Speedway and Disney’s sports complex, in 2:48:30, three seconds quicker than a year ago.
