New WDW Fantasyland Stuff

Bonnie and I had a chance to visit Magic Kingdom over the weekend.

We normally stay away from parks on big holiday’s like Easter but we decided to take a chance on Saturday. We had low expectations and decided in advance that we’d just “roll with it”.

I have to say we had great fortune. The park was, of course, packed but we were able to move around easily for the most part and thanks to FastPass were able to have some great fun.

If you follow the Walt Disney World thing, you know that there’s lots of new stuff that’s opened recently and continues to open in Fantasyland. Here’s a few things that were new to me this weekend (they may have been visible for a little while now … but I hadn’t seen them before).

The 7 Dwarfs Mine Train continues to grow

Just getting started

I was an avid blogger for many years when I was consulting and working as a trainer. As my work moved me away from those things, I stopped blogging and haven’t done so for several years.

Well … I’m back to consulting and working as a trainer and am feeling the itch to start blogging again …so that’s what I’ll be doing. 🙂

Most of what I blog will be technical software developer stuff (focused primarily on Android with some iOS on the mobile side / .NET on the server side). I’ll also being doing some fun stuff from life (being in Celebration, FL – 3 miles from Disney World – offers lots of opportunity for that). There’ll also be some spiritual stuff now-and-then as well.

Other online places you can find me…

I hope you find things enjoyable
