And now, the Mickey ice cream bar is taking on a whole new stylish form – Ears! Yes, your beloved ice cream treat has been transformed into a new must-have accessory that’s perfect for summer.


The Mickey Ice Cream Bar Ears feature plenty of sparkle, including an on-trend pink bow. Of course we love the bite detail on one side that only comes from eating this classic Mickey treat.

You can find these Ears {Mid June} at the Disneyland Resort and this July at the Walt Disney World Resort! Let us know in the comments if you’ll be “scooping” up a pair!

So, speaking of planning your next visit, meet the iridescent Minnie ears! We’re swooning over these unicorn-inspired, Lady Gaga-esque, oh-so sparkly set of ears coming this summer to the Disney Parks!


They feature a structured bow at the front that shines with shades of blue, pink, and purple as you move to different angles, and a soft pink velvet lining for comfort.

Flamingo Crossings Project Shows New Life with Permits for 4 New Hotels

The Flamingo Crossings project has shown new life with the recent filing of permits for 4 new hotels:

Quote: 4 New Affordable Hotels Are Coming to Disney World

The four hotels will be in Flamingo Crossings, just outside Disney World

Disney World will soon have even more options for where to stay.

Building permits for four new hotels were filed last week ...The new hotels, which will be at Flamingo Crossings, will be affordable chains, including Homewood Suites, Home2 Suites, Fairfield Inn, and Residence Inn.

A planned 998 rooms will be available across the four hotels, and there will also be a new convention space, and a pool area. The new hotels are slated to open sometime in 2019.

Flamingo Crossings, on the western edge of the Disney World resort, is a mixed-use development area with affordable options, such as third-party hotels, for Disney Parks visitors. The area is just outside the entrance to the park, so it’s still a convenient area for park goers who want to save some money. Originally announced in 2007, the area has had some setbacks, but the new hotels are a sign of good things to come.
Baker Barrios, the design firm for the Fairfield Inn and Residence Inn sites, has published what appears to be the site plan for the 4 hotels:



Doradus Partners, the developer of all 4 hotel sites, has published the concept art for each hotel:

Halloween on the High Seas 2018

intercot.com - Wed, 2018-06-20 00:16
The Disney Cruise Line has announced details for its Halloween on the High Seas 2018 event:

Quote: Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts

During this frightfully fun event, guests join Mickey and friends for a spellbinding lineup of themed parties and festive entertainment, including:


  • Mickey’s Mouse-querade Party, a super-fun family costume party with games, dancing and lots of candy!
  • A Nightmare Before Christmas – Sing and Scream, an interactive singalong movie experience followed by meet-and-greets with Jack and Sally.
  • Haunted Stories of the Sea, where a mysterious sea captain tells campfire-style ghost stories on the upper deck beneath the eerie glow of the night sky.
  • Halloween Isn’t Just For Kids, a special celebration just for adults where the nighttime entertainment district becomes the setting for a costume contest and a Villainous Takeover on the dance floor.


Plus...costumed character greetings, special Halloween treats and a magical Pumpkin Tree that transforms throughout the cruise.

No matter where you are, you won’t be far from a Halloween on the High Seas vacation! We have cruises sailing from both coasts this fall:


  • From New York City: Disney Magic sails four- and seven-night Canada cruises and five- and six-night Bermuda cruises departing Sept. 20 to Oct. 29.
  • From San Diego, California: Disney Wonder sails two-, four- and five-night Baja cruises, a seven-night Mexican Riviera cruise and a 14-night Panama Canal cruise departing Sept. 14 to Oct. 19.
  • From Port Canaveral, Florida: Disney Fantasy sails seven-night Eastern and Western Caribbean cruises departing Sept. 1 to Oct. 27. Disney Dream sails three- and four-night Bahamian cruises departing Sept. 3 to Oct. 29.

NYC help!

intercot.com - Tue, 2018-06-19 15:45
I am trying to book a 3 night stay in NYC for the second week in Dec. I am completely and totally out of my element! I am not very familiar with NYC, having only had one day trip there about 5 years ago. There are so many hotels to choose from and I don't even know where to start!

Looking for something clean and safe, not too expensive (would love to stay at $300 a night if possible), close to subway for easy transportation. Any advice on where I should focus my search? Any hotels that are recommended?

Here are some things we would like to do: 9/11 memorial site, Times Square, possibly a broadway show, the Christmas window displays, radio city music hall Christmas show, central park, the big Christmas tree. Typical holiday tourist things!
