Alien Swirling Saucers at Toy Story Land

Alien Swirling Saucers at Toy Story Land

toy story land alien saucers ride

Here’s a short recap about the newest attraction at Hollywood Studios, Alien Swirling Saucers.  An employee from The Insider rode and reviewed this ride on Opening Day.

  • The Alien Swirling Saucers ride opened Saturday, June 30, 2018 at Toy Story Land in Disney World’s Hollywood Studios.
  • INSIDER was there to try out the attraction opening day.
  • Guests sit in little spaceships that are pulled around four circular tracks by the “Toy Story” aliens.
  • If you like the Mad Tea Cup Ride at Magic Kingdom, this is similar. But you don’t get to spin your spaceship around.
  • Some gentle whips from side to side add enough of an unexpected jolt to make the ride worth it.
  • The reviewer waited 80 minutes for this ride.  The ride that lasts about two minutes.

The verdict? It’s definitely a cute ride, but it’s not worth waiting hours to try out.

If you have a little one with you, be prepared to carry them or have them walk. All strollers need to be parked outside the ride and aren’t allowed into the queue.

If you have little ones with you, make sure you have something to keep them occupied. There are fun painted walls and another one featuring buttons that look like you can press, but they’re just static wall decorations.

A lot of Toy Story Land doesn’t have shade. You’ll see a lot of colorful umbrellas around the area to offer some relief from the heat and to offer protection from incoming rain.  While the beginning of the ride has no covering to shield from the sun, the majority of the line is under coverage. Another plus? There are plenty of fans inside and out scattered throughout the ride to keep fans cool on a hot day. Water fountains are in the queue line, too.

If you’ve been on the spinning Mad Tea Party tea cups in Magic Kingdom, this new Toy Story Land ride will feel very familiar to you.

Note when you get inside your little spaceship, you may expect to start spinning it around. That’s not the case here. You have no control over the cart. Your spaceship is connected to an alien in a saucer who guides and spins you around four different large circles.

One other difference is that the attraction is large enough to have two sets of riders moving at once on spaceships so that double the number of guests can get through the ride at once. I entered on the left side of the ride which can accommodate 11 pairs or small groups of people. Each spaceship seats one to three individuals comfortably.

Every so often your alien guide will whip your cart from one side to the other. It was just the right amount of a jolt to keep a rider smiling. Otherwise, the ride would have been a really tame tea cup replicate.

The Alien Swirling Saucers is definitely a kid ride meant to do with parents. Everyone  looked like they had a good time. But because of the short time you get to spend on the actual attraction, avoiding a longer line by nabbing a FastPass or heading to it first thing in the morning. And if neither of those work, you can always head straight there when it starts raining. Just remember to pack a poncho.

If you ever want to chat about Disney, come over to Goldwiser in Old Town Spring.  We are open from 10 am to 7 pm Monday through Saturday and located at 1122 Spring Cypress Rd., Spring, TX 77373.  Let’s talk some Disney World! While you’re at it, bring your old gold, silver and platinum jewelry and old coins and gift cards. Maybe you can get some extra cash for a Disney trip!

Reviewing The Slinky Dog Dash at Toy Story Land

Reviewing The Slinky Dog Dash at Disney’s Toy Story Land

BOTTLE WATER

As a water-lover and expert on global water ethics, I see H2O everywhere: waterfalls and lakes, drought and flood, sparkling, still, bottled, tap, from a well, in the surf, behind a dam, in plastic, in glass, from the cooler at yoga class, with or without ice.

How we drink our water shows us what kind of society we are. I want my body and my society to reflect sustainable values, so I only drink disposable, plastic bottled water if there is absolutely no alternative. If I were in a truly extreme situation—say, a cholera epidemic, an area without reliable water supply, or a desert, for example—then I would drink bottled water. Happily, most of us are not in those situations. And wonderful alternatives are easily available.

Sound extreme? It’s not, when you consider these 7 truths about bottled water. Read on, and become a healthier person, a smarter consumer, and a global citizen!

1. Plastic bottles are not sustainable, no matter what we’ve been told.

Using vast quantities of fossil fuels and water, these bottles are manufactured, filled, and shipped around the globe. (Not a good carbon footprint!) Neither are bottles biodegradable in any meaningful way: what you drink in a few minutes can stick around for a thousand years.

Even with recycling efforts, 6 out of 7 plastic bottles consumed in the U.S. are “downcycled”—sent somewhere out of sight and out of mind where, for the next millennia, toxins from degrading plastic containers can leach into watersheds and soil. That’s just not something we need to give to global neighbors and future generations.

2. Some bottled water is glorified tap water at 10,000 times the cost.

The label on your bottled water may depict a peaceful mountain stream, but that doesn’t mean the water inside is pure and pristine.

Only some bottled water comes from springs or groundwater sources. It turns out that approximately 25% of bottled water is sourced from … the tap. Sure, some companies filter or radiate the tap water with ultraviolet light before selling it to you at several thousand times the cost of municipal tap water. (Examples include Aquafina, Dasani, and many other brands.)

Moreover, studies show that bottled water samples can contain phthalates, mold, microbes, benzene, trihalomethanes, even arsenic. And only recently did the FDA start regulating bottled water for E. Coli, thanks to advocacy by the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Upshot: bottled water markup is extreme. Health standards are often a wash and may even favor tap water. (If you’re concerned about municipal water supply and want to know more, check out this helpful resource, which can help you learn about your municipal water supply and decide if filtration or purification is right for you.)

3. Many bottled waters contain toxins, even if they’ve nixed BPA.

Plastic isn’t just bad for the planet (see #1). It’s not good for you, either.

Bottled water companies increasingly use BPA-free plastic, but laced into plastic bottles are other chemicals that can seep out if bottles are exposed to heat or sit around for a long time. Some of these chemicals are possible endocrine disruptors. No one knows for sure what the health outcomes are. Do you really want your body to undergo that experiment?

4. Fashion, foodies, and sustainable cities are taking back the tap.

New York City’s Fashion Week, Chez Panisse, the city of San Francisco and Grand Canyon National Park have all reduced or eliminated bottled water! AVEDA teamed up with New York’s Department of Environmental Protection during Fashion Week 2010 to provide free drinking fountains on the streets of New York.

5. Local water is the new complement to local, organic food.

Local food is everywhere these days: CSAs, farmers markets, farm-to-table dining. That local food is grown and cooked with … local water! It’s the invisible part of the sustainable, healthy food you eat.

So, locavores, it’s time to get your hydrophilia on and appreciate your water supply just as much as you do your CSA. Shouldn’t we care for and support our water sources like we support healthy, organic, local farms?

6. There ARE gorgeous alternatives for on-the-go hydrophiles!

Choose a durable, re-useable water bottle (BPA-free or, even better, stainless steel) in whatever size or shape and design you like. I think of it as an accessory: at my most recent job interview, a team member commented on my green, reusable water bottle. (I got the job.)

For home, try the new, limited edition Soma water carafe and filter. It’s a sleek, glass carafe with the first-ever fully biodegradable filter (made from coconut shells—stupendously cool), with a new filter sent automatically every 60 days. As a working professional and parent with an eye for design, I love this. For those who want an in-sink filtration system, check out this helpful resource from Food & Water Watch. And for sparkling water addicts (like myself), I highly recommend Soda Stream.

7. Change is simple—and makes a real difference!

When you ditch disposable bottled water, you save money, live healthier, and join a movement for global sustainability. Plus, it’s easy. And you’ll save money.

Yes, you’ll need to take that first step of buying your re-usable bottle, and then remember it when you jog out the door. But if “keys, wallet, yoga mat” are on your mental checklist anyway, what’s one more item that saves you money and protects the planet?

If after six months, you still crave water from Fiji, then I suggest the following: take the money you’ve saved by sipping strategically. Treat yourself to a vacation in, well, Fiji—where you can hydrate, surf, relax, and celebrate the fact that you are an awesome part of the solution! By Christiana Z. Peppard

Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Show at Hollywood Studios

Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Show at Hollywood Studios

Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! is a live amusement show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. Based on the popular and successful Indiana Jones film franchise and it includes various stunts and live reenacted scenes from the series’s first film, Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! entrance.jpg

The show opened on August 25, 1989, as the first Indiana Jones attraction at a Disney park.  The show is about 30 minutes in length and appeals to both children, senior citizens and most especially fans of the Raiders film series.  I have been to this show many times and have always loved the action and explanation of how the many stunts from the movies are accomplished.

The action starts with Indy braving dangers in a recreation of the Peruvian temple scene from the beginning of the movie. Dangerous spikes, false floors and ancient booby traps test the archaeologist’s skills before he attempts to make a getaway with the golden idol. The stunt show then moves on to the busy and audience-participant filled streets of Cairo. Indy and Marion watch street acrobats before events take a turn for the worse and a massive fight scene breaks out. The Cairo street scene concludes with Indy shooting at a Jeep loaded with explosives, producing a fiery conclusion. The final scene of the stunt show recreates the action-packed sequence in which Indy and Marion try to stop the Nazis from flying the Ark to Berlin. The reenactment is complete with a scaled-down version of a German Luftwaffe aircraft with symbols imitating the swastika (actual swastikas were used in the show up until the 2000s). Indy fights a large German mechanic while Marion operates the aircraft’s machine gun, blowing away enemies in sight. Indy and Marion are able to make a narrow escape as the airfield is engulfed in flames.

Along with the former Superstar Television and Monster Sound Show, The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! is a show that relies on audience participation as part of the show’s entertainment. Volunteers are chosen from the crowd to perform in the Cairo street scene though they safely stay away from the real stunt work. Along with the audience, one real stunt actor plant is chosen from the audience to do real work, a fact that has become common knowledge after the many years that the attraction has been open (the plant is usually a man in a loud Hawaiian shirt).

The Stunt Theater holds 2,000 people; capacity audiences are common. The first performance is always the easiest to see. If the first show is at 10 a.m. or earlier, you can usually walk in, even if you arrive 5 minutes late. For the second performance, show up about 15-20 minutes ahead of time. For the third and subsequent shows, arrive 20-30 minutes early. If you plan to tour during late afternoon and evening, attend the last scheduled performance. If you want to beat the crowd out of the stadium, sit on the far right (as you face the staging area) and near the top.

Be sure to check the Times Guide at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the schedule and show times. Since this is an outdoor show, it is also subject to cancellation due to inclement weather. Show times are subject to change.

This show is a “must see” to those guests visiting Disney for the first time.  It is also one that can be seen over and over again — don’t miss it!

tortillas

 

Tortillas of blue corn

This drawing is a recreation of the corn tortilla glyphfound in the Codex Mendoza

In North America and Central America, a corn tortilla or just tortilla  Spanish:  is a type of thin, unleavened flatbread, made from finely ground maize (corn). In Guatemala and Mexico, there are three colors of maize dough for making tortillas: white maize, yellow maize and blue maize (or black maize). An influential 2002 study by Matsuoka et al. has demonstrated that, rather than the multiple independent domestications model, all maize arose from a single domestication in southern Mexico about 9,000 years ago. The study also demonstrated that the oldest surviving maize types are those of the Mexican highlands.

A similar bread from South America, called arepa (though arepas are typically much thicker than tortillas), predates the arrival of Europeans to America, and was called tortilla by the Spanish from its resemblance to the traditional Spanish round, unleavened cakes and omelettes (originally made without potatoes, which are native to South America). The Aztecs and other Nahuatl-speakers call tortillas tlaxcalli  these have become the prototypical tortillas.

Maize kernels naturally occur in many colors, depending on the cultivar: from pale white, to yellow, to red and bluish purple. Likewise, corn meal and the tortillas made from it may be similarly colored. White and yellow tortillas are by far the most common, however.

The corn tortilla, with many variants, has been a staple food in North American and Mesoamerican cultures since pre-Columbian times. It predates the alternative wheat flour version of the tortilla (tortilla de harina or tortilla de trigo) in all such cultures, as wheat was not grown in the Americas prior to European contact.

In Aztec times, two or three corn tortillas would be eaten with each meal, either plain or dipped in mole or a chili pepper and water sauce.[3] Tortillas were also sold at Aztec marketplaces filled with turkey meat, turkey eggs, beans, honey, squash, prickly pears and chili pepper.[3]

Analogous staple foods in New World cultures, made from nixtamal and serving a similar nutritional function, include the sope, the totopo, the gordita, and the tlacoyo of Mexico, the pupusa of Central America, and the arepa of northern South America.

The tamal (or tamale) of Mexico, Central America and northern South America is also made from nixtamal, but is much thicker and is a dish unto itself, usually including other ingredients and flavors, rather than a staple food used in other dishes.

Mexico and Central America[edit]

Toasted tortillas are used for making tlayudas being sold by a street vendor in Oaxaca

Maize has been a staple food for centuries. It is the most planted crop in the Mexican region. The country grows more than 42 different types of maize, each of which has several varieties whose number is estimated at more than 3,000 by the International Center for the Improvement of Maize and Wheat (CIMMYT). The characteristics of each variety depend upon soil conditions, humidity, altitude, and how cultivated. Some of the earliest evidence of maize cultivation suggests that domestication took place in several places at the same time.

Maize is the basis of most Mexican cuisine, with some exception in the culinary traditions of northern Mexico, where wheat is taking the place of maize as the cereal base. In Mexico, the primary use of maize is the tortilla, but it is also a principle ingredient in other foods including tamales and atole. The maize used for tortillas can be ripe and dry, but it is also consumed fresh and mature (maize), or soft and fresh (xilote).[4]

Tortillas are consumed daily. Factory-made tortillas are widely sold, and they can easily be home-made. Tortilla production starts from early morning because lunch is the main meal of the day for most people. In Mexico, lunch is eaten between 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Some supermarkets and grocery stores sell tortillas throughout the day.

Tortillas come in several different flavors and colors according to the kind of maize used. Tortillas come with all the traditional foods of Mexico, though not with all the fillings that are used these days.

Mexican and, more generally, Latin American dishes made with maize tortillas include:

Mexican burritos are made with flour tortillas. For some uses, such as quesadillas, either maize or wheat tortillas can be used.

Star Wars Must Do Experiences at Hollywood Studios – Part 2

Until Star Wars: Galaxy Edge opens at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, guests still have options to travel to a galaxy far, far away.  Hollywood Studios is the singular destination for Star Wars entertainment and rides at Walt Disney World.  Here are some amazing  experiences you need to see on your next trip!

Character Meet and Greets

Located at Star Wars Launch Bay, guests have the opportunity to meet and have their photos taken with BB-8, Chewbacca, and Kylo Ren.  We love the realism of the scenes where guests meet the characters.  Guests will be amazed by the short lines to meet the characters, too!

Kia Lo Ren

Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away

A stage show put on multiple times a day on the stage in front of the theatre, Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away takes guests on a journey through the classic moments in the films and demonstrates the magic of the film series!  The show is outside, so we recommend checking out one of the earlier shows in the day or one of the late ones!  I have been to this show several times and I highly recommend it.  Be sure to go — you won’t be disappointed.

Star Wars: A Galaxy Far, Far Away

 

Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular

The nightly fireworks display at Hollywood Studios is a fantastic combination of fireworks and projections onto the Chinese Theatre.  The show is one of the best on property and the combination of Star Wars and fireworks is sure to draw a crowd, so be sure to get there early to stake out a good viewing location – and of course to grab some popcorn and a pretzel or a Mickey ice cream bar!  Both children and adults will love this show.

Star Wars Galactic Spectacular

Star Tours

The original Star Wars experience takes guests on an interactive journey into the worlds of the movies on a mission to protect the Rebel Spy in their fight against the Empire.  You’ll love the variety of the ride with show scenes changing no matter how many times you ride the attraction.  And with new Star Wars movies being released, guests are introduced to these worlds not only through the movies, but through the ride.  My family always checks out this attraction on a visit to Hollywood Studios because we haven’t given up being selected as the Rebel Spy!  Ok, on my last trip to Disney, I was selected as the Rebel Spy — super cool!  Plus we are still trying to see all of the show scenes — there are many, many different scenes.  Yes, Star Tours has been around a while but it has been updated and this is still one of my favorites at Hollywood Studios!

Star Tours

 

Star Wars is a wonderful, immersive story and my family and I like being able to explore those lands and meet the characters during vacation.   Personally, I cannot wait for the world of Star Wars to become even more detailed with the new land, Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge (scheduled to open the Fall of 2019)!  What is your favorite Star Wars experience at Disney World?

If you ever want to chat about Disney, come over to Goldwiser in Old Town Spring.  We are open from 10 am to 7 pm Monday through Saturday and located at 1122 Spring Cypress Rd., Spring, TX 77373.  Let’s talk some Disney World!

Darth vader

March of the First Order

Occurring at various times during the day, the March of the First Order is a very general experience, but is one that you’ll love checking out.  Captain Phasma and a contingent of Stormtroopers march from the central stage area in front of the theatre on down  to Hollywood Boulevard.  It’s so much fun to watch the other families part ways in the street and photograph the Stormtroopers marching.   The music that is played to accompany the march is fantastic — you will love it!

March of the First Order

Star Wars Launch Bay

Located in Animation Courtyard, Star Wars Launch Bay is a destination for both new and old fans of Star Wars!  There is so much to see and discover here – guests can see props from the Star Wars movies, shop for a memento, and even see a short film about the Star Wars franchise.  You may also want to make sure you bring a few things to barter with because jawas wander around the Launch Bay and are willing to trade with guests!  So much fun!!

Toy Story Land Officially Open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Toy Story Land Officially Open at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney’s Hollywood Studios officially welcomed guests to “Play Big” in Toy Story Land. The grand opening of this new area to Hollywood Studios took place on June 30.

Disney Toy Story

After months of anticipation, guests can now enjoy everything Toy Story Land has to offer – on a daily basis! They can step into the land and explore the fun that Woody, Jessie and many other “Toy Story” friends are having in Andy’s backyard. Guests can glide along with Slinky aboard Slinky Dog Dash, a family fun roller coaster Andy built from his Mega Coaster Play Kit that whisks guests high above and around a scattering of Andy’s favorite toys – including Wheezy and Rex. Families can take a spin on Alien Swirling Saucers, play their way through Toy Story Mania! (one of my personal favorites), or stop to enjoy tasty snacks – like Raspberry Lunchbox Tarts and S’mores French Toast Sandwiches – at Woody’s Lunch Box. Just walking through the land, guests can marvel at the land’s collection of toys, enjoy awe-inspiring drum sequences by the Green Army Drum Corps, or play “Sarge Says” with Sarge and his Green Army Patrol. And of course, Woody, Buzz and Jessie will greet guests throughout Toy Story Land on a daily basis.  Sounds awesome, doesn’t it?

Alien Swirling Saucers in Toy Story Land

Toy Story Land is the largest expansion yet in the history of Disney’s Hollywood Studios, an achievement that required the creative talents of a skilled project team made up of Imagineers, cast members and Pixar partners that together took this project “to infinity and beyond!”

Toy Story Land was officially dedicated on Friday, June 29, in a special star-studded and toy-filled celebration. Bob Chapek, Chairman, Disney Parks Experiences and Consumer Products, led the ceremony and shared his excitement for a land he calls unforgettable.

“With this new land, we’re taking what we do best – creating magical experiences – and combining them with the heart, the humor, and the adventure of ‘Toy Story.’” Bob said. “We’ve created an unbelievable place where you will magically transform to the size of a toy, and experience new adventures for the whole family. With new attractions, including the one-of-a-kind Slinky Dog Dash and Alien Swirling Saucers, you’re in store for an experience that you will never forget.”

Actor Tim Allen, who has voiced Buzz Lightyear since the first “Toy Story” film debuted in 1995, also made a special appearance and thanked Disney for bringing such a meaningful film and its characters to life at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Which new attraction will you try first?  All in all, Toy Story Land sounds like tons of fun and a chance for adults to “Play Big”.

Experiences Worth Repeating At Disney World’s Magic Kingdom – Part 4

Experiences Worth Repeating At Disney World’s Magic Kingdom – Part 4

As a person who has experienced the Disney parks multiple times, I often get asked if I ever get tired of visiting the Magic Kingdom. My answer is always, “No way! I’m ready to go again right now!” Here are some of the experiences that I love and will continue to visit again and again.

Enjoying some Dole Whip

There’s a reason Dole Whip has something of a cult following. Pineapple-flavored soft serve? Who could resist, especially in the summertime? This is a must do every time I’m at the Magic Kingdom!  With this delicious treat in hand, head on over to…….

Dole Whip

Visiting the Enchanted Tiki Room

Ah, the Enchanted Tiki Room. Yet another way to get out of the heat (yes, this is indoors, cool and comfortable) and enjoy a little Disney nostalgia. Sing along as the birds, flowers, and tikis put on a show that never fails to put smiles on everyone’s faces.  Although this attraction has been around a while, it’s always a “must see”.

Enchanted Tiki Room

Doing Something “Magical” for a Stranger

Who says you have to leave all the magic to Disney? You can add a little “pixie dust” to the visits of your fellow guests by handing out extra glow sticks to kids who don’t have any, or using your left-over Dining Plan points at the end of your trip to buy treats for another family. Get creative, pay it forward!

Castle Main St

Watching Fireworks

A visit to the Magic Kingdom just wouldn’t be the same without experiencing one of their nighttime spectaculars. The current one, “Happily Ever After”, is an unforgettable mix of fireworks and projections that transform Cinderella’s Castle into a dazzling array of classic Disney and Pixar films. It’s enough to take one’s breath away every time.  I try to watch several times while visiting Disney!

Carrousel Night

As you can see, the Magic Kingdom has no shortage of experiences worth revisiting year after year. With time, you’ll find out which of them—whether they’re listed here or not—are even more special to you.

Have a magical trip to Disney!

Experiences Worth Repeating At Disney World’s Magic Kingdom – Part 3

 

As a person who has experienced the Disney parks multiple times, I often get asked if I ever get tired of visiting the Magic Kingdom. My answer is always, “No way! I’m ready to go again right now!” Here are some of the experiences that I love and will continue to visit again and again.

Playing the Part at “Enchanted Tales with Belle”

Speaking of storybook experiences, “Enchanted Tales with Belle” is one you and your kids can actually be a part of. After taking a trip through a magical portal, join Belle in the castle library to help reenact the story of how she and the Beast met. Your family will cherish the memories made here forever.  This attraction is more for children — adults may want to wander through once.  A plus is that this attraction is mostly in the cool indoors! 

Enchanted Tales With Belle

Riding the PeopleMover

Need a break from thrill rides like Space Mountain and Seven Dwarves Mine Train? Hop on the Tomorrowland Transit Authority PeopleMover and take a leisurely tour around Tomorrowland. You might be surprised what you get to see.  This is a ride I go on every time I visit Magic Kingdom!  It’s a nice low key attraction with a low wait time.

Seeing the Carousel of Progress

The show is perhaps a little dated, but the Carousel of Progress has a certain charm that keeps us coming back. Its message is a useful reminder that as good as things are today, there’s always a great big beautiful tomorrow to look forward to.

Ride Carousel Of Progress

As you can see, the Magic Kingdom has no shortage of experiences worth revisiting year after year. With time, you’ll find out which of them—whether they’re listed here or not—are even more special to you.
