Time for fun

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-03-14 19:28
If you could design your own restaurant in Disney World, what would it be?

I think I would place one in Animal Kingdom that is designed to look like the Moors in Maleficent when she turns it dark. The dark sky, blue lights highlighting the trees with twinkling Christmas tree type lights. Candles on the tables.
The windows could be made to look like you are looking out on the Moors when it is bright and sunny.
I would have the waiters and waitresses dress like young Stefan and young Maleficent.
The food would be Medieval inspired food with medieval type place settings perhaps made out of wood or made to look like it is made out of wood.
The building itself could be made to look like a large stone monolith rising up out of the trees.

I figure if they can do Pandora, they can do the Moors.

Winter storm STELLLLAAAAAA

intercot.com - Tue, 2017-03-14 11:47
I know many of us are in Stella's path. Who is home today?

I type this from my home as I work from my living room this morning in Ithaca, NY. I hope my fellow INTERCOTees impacted by the storm from Maine to DC are staying safe and warm. I am lucky to have the privilege of choosing to work from home and having that support from my employer, and I recognize that many other people don't have that choice and can't afford not to show up for work no matter the conditions. If you are lucky enough to have a "snow day" with no consequences, have a great day and stay safe. If you can't- if you are the person plowing the streets so our law enforcement, first response, and power companies can keep us safe and the wifi running, if you are the doctors and nurses who trudge through awful weather to deliver babies and save lives, THANK YOU!

Pirates of the Caribbean to be feted at Disneyland for 50th Anniversary

TheDisneyBlog.com - Tue, 2017-03-14 02:01

For people who weren’t alive in 1967 it’s hard to understand how large a leap in themed entertainment Walt Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean attraction was at the time. Up until the time of the 1964 World’s Fair, the attraction had been planned as a walk-through wax museum, which was...

You're In Luck if you are Looking for Walt Disney World St. Patrick's Day Treats

You're In Luck if you are Looking for Walt Disney World St. Patrick's Day Treats:

Quote: Originally Posted by Disney Parks & Resorts

The biggest celebration at Walt Disney World Resort is the Mighty St. Patrick’s Day Festival at Raglan Road at Disney Springs. This is the real deal, with Irish Chef Kevin Dundon’s authentic cuisine, Irish bands and pro dancers, a fine selection of beers and cocktails and all sorts of St. Pat’s fun. The party stretches from March 16-19, and the craic (Gaelic for fun) will be mighty.

On St. Patrick’s Day, you can find the cutest cupcake at Fountain View at Epcot: yellow cake with green and white buttercream and a leprechaun hat made of a chocolate sandwich cookie and a marshmallow. Three gold nuggets (from the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow?) are the finishing touch.

In Magic Kingdom Park’s Main Street Bakery, the St. Pat’s cupcake with vanilla buttercream frosting with four-leaf clover sprinkles is the perfect holiday Instagram opportunity. And beginning March 12 at Casey’s Corner, celebrate with a new gourmet hot dog, topped with corned beef, Swiss cheese, sauerkraut and whole grain mustard.

If you’re passing through Disney’s Contemporary Resort on the monorail (or a guest at the resort), stop in Contempo Café for a fancy Leprechaun’s Pot of Gold Cupcake, a delectable vanilla cupcake filled with green lemon filling with a dollop of yellow “gold” lemon filling in the center, then topped with green swirled buttercream icing and decorations of gold chocolate coins and sprinkles. Take a photo before you’re tempted to start eating.

At Epcot, Rose & Crown Pub in the United Kingdom pavilion celebrates the day with green beer – perfect with the restaurant’s corned beef and cabbage.

Old Mickey button

intercot.com - Mon, 2017-03-13 17:14
My husband has really gotten into metal detecting lately. He found this button buried in our front yard. It's 7/8 of an inch wide, and had a brooch-type pin on the back. It's obviously a profile of Mickey, but I have searched and searched for it online, with no results. Our house was built in '66, so I'm thinking it may be from the 70s or 80s. I'm trying to find an age and where it came from. Any ideas?
