The MyMagic+ testing is set to expand across Disney World, to include all Walt Disney World Resort hotels by the end of January 2014. With MyMagic+, guests will be given a MagicBand in place of the Key to the World Card for all MyMagic+ functions, including park admission, touch-to-pay, touch-to-enter, and FastPass+.
You may still request Key to the World cards, but they will not be able to be used for legacy FASTPASS machine use.
By the end of January 2014, all Walt Disney World Resort Guests will be using FastPass+, and will not have access to the traditional FASTPASS system.
Here is the schedule:
•Jan. 6 – Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
•Jan. 7 – Disney’s Port Orleans Resort
•Jan. 8 – Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort and Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort
•Jan. 9 – Disney’s Old Key West Resort and Disney’s Saratoga Spring Resort
•Jan. 10 – Disney’s Wilderness Lodge
•Jan. 13 – Disney’s Yacht & Beach Club Resorts
•Jan. 14 – Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge Resort
•Jan. 15 – Disney’s BoardWalk Inn
•Jan. 16 – Disney’s Contemporary Resort

•Jan. 20 – Disney’s Fort Wilderness Resort
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,400 times in 2013. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

According to an inside source, here is the schedule for the taping of the Christmas parade.
- Friday December 6th, 2013 Morning Practice followed by performance and the taping of the parade.
- Saturday December 7th, 2013 Morning Practice followed by performance and the taping of the parade.
- Sunday December 8th, 2013 is the rain day. Might be in late afternoon.
We have visited the park during the taping. Last year we watched the taping of Lady Antebellum. It’s a LONG process. Just to tape one song it took over an hour (and then we left). we have also watched the parade being taped, it is also a long process because they will back the parade up and retake again and again. We have also watched the little segments they take with the hosts around the parks.
Its fun to do once or twice!
As the presenting sponsor for the marquis culinary event, Chase will offer debit and credit cardholders, including Disney Visa® Cardmembers, exclusive access to the Chase Lounge at the Festival. The lounge, which will be located on the third floor of the American Adventure Pavilion within the Epcot World Showcase, offers an inviting space to relax, enjoy complimentary beverages, electronic charging stations, and other amenities exclusively for Chase customers. The lounge will be open daily during the Festival from 11 a.m. to park close.
“We greatly value our 10-year relationship with Disney, which is why we’re thrilled to be the presenting sponsor of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival again this year,” said Robert Belan, general manager, Chase. “The festival is one of the most renowned events at Walt Disney World and attracts Chase customers from across the country and visitors from around the globe. The lounge for cardholders is ideally located within the heart of the festival and gives us the ability to create a truly unique and special experience for all Chase cardholders attending the event.”
The sponsorship of the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival extends Chase’s relationship with Disney that began more than 10 years ago with the introduction of the Disney Rewards® Visa® Card. Last year, Chase launched the Disney Visa® Debit Card and also the Disney Premier Visa® Card, which offers Premier cardholders the ability to earn 2% in Disney Dream Reward Dollars for card purchases at gas stations, grocery stores, restaurants and most Disney locations, such as Walt Disney World Resort, the Disneyland Resort, Disney Cruise Line® and Disney Store. I know a couple folks who fund most of their vacation this way.
