  1. Toy Story 4 Review Recently TPR was given the chance to see a preview screening of Toy Story 4. I always thought that Toy Story 3 had wrapped up the entire series pretty perfectly so in a way it was sort of odd to see a 4th film released but it's Toy Story, easily the most successful Pixar franchise so I was eager to check it out. I'm really happy to say Pixar definitely hit another homerun here! This movies picks up not too long after the last Toy Story with Bonnie's family taking a road trip before she starts kindergarten. In her orientation she glues some pipe cleaner to a spork and c
  2. A few nights ago TPR was invited out to the opening night of the new Villains After Hours event at Magic Kingdom. If you've been to the other After Hours events this one has the same perks with some special entertainment and plused up attractions. I really dug the atmosphere of the event, it sort of had a Mickey's Not So Scary vibe and as a someone who's always appreciated the Halloween events it was cool to get that atmosphere during the summer months. Pirates and Space both had special additions for this event, they're very similar to the additions they got during Not So Scary. Pirates had s
  3. TPR was invited out to Amway Center for the Grand Opening announcement of the NBA Experience as well as hear more about the new offering at Disney Springs! Press Release: Mickey’s here and ready for basketball! It’s game time at AmwayCenter! [twitter] [/twitter] Was a really fun night! NBA Experience opens August 12th at Disney Springs!
  4. Ant Man and The Wasp Review Got a chance to see Ant Man and the Wasp last night. Really enjoyed the movie, like the first one it's a very fun and comedic addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The action is a lot of fun although a bit more "low-key" than other MCU movies. The scenes in the "quantum realm" are stunning and looked amazing in IMAX 3D. This being Ant Man AND the Wasp there's a lot of double teaming action between the two that works great. The comedy works very well, Michael Pena reprises his role as Luis and he's hysterical. Anytime he tells one of his "stories" it al
  5. I've spent the last two days at Disney's Hollywood Studios for the grand opening of Toy Story Land! The areas a lot of fun, lots of attention to detail. Slinky Dog Dash is a really fun family coaster, being a 38 inch height requirement attraction it will be a great fit for the park! It's a really cool looking coaster, especially at night with the lighting package. Was pretty impressed with everything I saw in the land and I think it will be a great addition to Hollywood Studios! Check out the pictures! Good morning from Toy Story Land Can't wait to ride Slinky Dog Dash for the fir
  6. Last night we were at the opening of H20 Glow Nights, the new hard ticket event at Typhoon Lagoon! Had a lot of fun, really enjoyed just being able to hang out in the park at night. Like other Disney hard ticket events the crowds are kept pretty light, meaning little to no waits for anything. There's some entertainment offerings unique to Glow Nights like the Partysaurus Rex dance party and meet and greets with Buzz, Woody and Jessie. Honestly had a really good time, would love to see more nighttime events in the waterparks! Sun’s setting on Typhoon Lagoon, time for Glow Nights to start!
  7. Incredibles 2 Review Just got back from a preview screening of Incredibles 2! Got to say it's fantastically fun and a worthy squeal to the original movie that's fits in very well with today's huge superhero movie landscape! It starts off right where the first Incredibles movie ended getting us right back into the action. Right off the bat, the paceing of this movie is excellent. At no point did I find myself getting bored or checking my watch. This movie manages to balance two different plotlines through most of the film, while making both really fun and engaging. Also, didn't rea
  8. Tonight was opening night of Rent at the Dr. Phillips Center here in Orlando. It was my first time seeing the show and didn’t really know a lot about it going in. It’s definitely a show that’s thought provoking, emotional while also being a lot of fun. I thought it blended humor and serious moments very well. The cast did a great job, especially nailing those more emotional moments. The set design and visuals were stunning, really brought you into the story. I can definitely see why it still resonates with audiences 20 years later. From the offical website: Rent runs now through June
  9. Just back from seeing Finding Neverland at the Dr. Phillips Center here in Orlando. Finding Neverland tells the story of the creation of Peter Pan By J.M. Barrie. This was my first time seeing the show and I didn't know much about it going in. The production design is fantastic and it really shows in the numbers near the end of the first act. I did find the latter half of the first act to be the strongest part of the show with some very memorable songs and set pieces. Finding Neverland is a show that is a strong mix of light hearted comedy and drama and cast nailed it wonderfully. The sho
  10. Tonight was the VIP party for Cobra's Curse! It was a great event, we had Montu, Cheetah Hunt and of course Cobra's Curse open to us for four hours! Plus lots of free food and drinks, which is always a plus. Cobra's Curse is really fun family coaster and a great addition to the park! Check out the photos: Got our credentials and we're ready to go! Got our credentials and we're ready to go! Got our credentials and we're ready to go! Got our credentials and we're ready to go!

  11. TPR was recently invited out to a special sneak preview of Finding Dory! Finding Dory takes place a year after the events of Finding Nemo with Dory, Marlin and Nemo setting out to find Dory's parents. The journey eventually takes them to a Seaworld-esque marine park where the majority of the movie takes place. It's basically a huge adventure from exhibit to exhibit trying to find Dory's parents. I will say Finding Dory is definitely a win for Pixar! It's high paced and fun while also having it's classic emotional Pixar moments. Going into this movie I was sort of thinking that giving
  12. TPR was invited to check out Universal Studios Hollywood's Lunar New Year Celebration and see the new and improved Special Effects Show!
