New! PhotoPass Photos Automatically Linked to MagicBands: Are you a MagicBand wearer? Well if you are then you’re in for a treat…well it depends on if your definition of a treat is more on the creepy side. On select Walt Disney World Resort attractions, your photos will now be automatically associated with your My Disney Experience account. You don’t have to do anything… that’s kind of the creepy part.

If you’ve worn your MagicBand on one of the participating attractions in the last 45 days, you should be able to find that photo in your account now. If you don’t have a MagicBand you can use the new touch points at Magic Kingdom Park (Buzz Lightyear’s Space Ranger Spin, Space Mountain, Splash Mountain) and after you ride, simply find your photo on the preview wall and touch your park ticket or Memory Maker card to the touch point.

Candlelight Processional 2014 Returns to Epcot

Candlelight Processional 2014 Returns to Epcot: Candlelight Processional is one of my favorite ThemePark holiday traditions to do at Walt Disney World. Each guest at Epcot is entertained with the jubilant reciting of the divine Christmas story from November 28th until December 30th. The story is usually told by a celebrity narrator accompanied with a 50-piece orchestra and a magnificent mass choir.
