Frozen gingerbread display at the Walt Disney World Resort

Disney’s animated feature Frozen has taken the world by storm since its 2013 theatrical release, so it’s not surprising that the company is doing everything possible to populate the world with more Frozen. For example, there’s already plans for a new theatrical short, Frozen Fever; a Broadway musical; and a new attraction at Disney World’s Norway Pavilion at EPCOT to replace The Maelstrom.

The Frozen characters already have a huge presence at Disney World, and now, they’ve been incorporated into Disney World’s Contemporary Resort’s massive Gingerbread display. Check out the video here below that gives a behind-the-scenes look at the Frozen display, which is just one of many Gingerbread showcases throughout the Florida theme park.

Frozen Magic Kingdom Cinderella Castle Disney World

Since its 2013 release and subsequent smash success at the box office, Disney’s Frozen has had a presence in its Disney World theme park. There’s the “Anna and Elsa’s Royal Welcome” meet and greet with Queen Elsa and Princess Anna in EPCOT; the “For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration” singalong in Disney’s Hollywood Studios; the “Frozen Fireworks Spectacular” at the Magic Kingdom,” and much more, all of which has been met with great reception. So, it’s no surprise that Disney has plans to expand the world of Frozen further into their theme park.

Disney has announced plans for a Frozen attraction at the Norway Pavilion in the World Showcase portion of Disney World’s EPCOT park. Construction will begin soon to refurbish the current Maelstrom ride, which will close after October 5, 2014. The new Frozen attraction is said to bring guests to Arendelle, immersing them in moments and music from the film.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has not only smashed box office records, its soundtrack, Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix Vol. 1 (which we went over in detail here), hit Number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart last week. So, it goes without saying that people love Guardians and want more of it.

Now, Guardians is infiltrating one of the Disney theme parks when the “Awesome Mix Tape Dance Party” segment comes to “Villains Unleashed,” a separate ticketed event taking place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios for one night only — August 23, 2014.

Blue Avatar Lights Twinkle On Disney World's Animal Kingdom Tree Of Life

At last summer’s D23 Expo, we got a tiny glimpse at what the Disney Imagineers have in mind for their Avatar-themed expansion at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at the Disney World Resort. Ground broke back in January at the Orlando theme park on the new land, which is being created in conjunction with Avatar director James Cameron and Lightstorm Entertainment.

The folks over at the Disney fan site MouseSteps posted a video of some Avatar-colored twinkling lights seen this weekend on the Animal Kingdom’s centerpiece, the Tree of Tree. The lights were part of the park’s new special event, Harambe Nights, which celebrates the story of Disney’s The Lion King. Check out the video here below.

Disney World Super Bowl Parade Malcolm Smith 2014

Super Bowl XLVIII MVP Malcolm Smith’s got to utter the famous phrase on Sunday night “I’m going to Disney World” after his team, the Seattle Seahawks, won the big game 43-8 over the Denver Broncos. Each year, the Super Bowl MVP gives this excited response about going to Disney World (or sometimes to Disneyland, depending on where the game is held) when asked on the football field immediately after the win – “You’ve just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do next?”

On Monday, the Seahawks linebacker arrived in Orlando, FL, from the New York/New Jersey area where the game took place the night before, to take part in Disney World’s celebratory Super Bowl parade at the Magic Kingdom park.

Check out a video here below of part of the parade, as well as some words from Smith about his whirlwind experience.

Runners got to enter the 5th dimension during last night’s The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fl.

During the 10-mile nighttime race, participants ran through a course from Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park to the ESPN Wide World of Sports and then back again to the Studios through the Lights, Motors, Action™ Extreme Stunt Show, along the New York Street on the backlot, past Mickey’s Sorcerer’s Hat at the top of Hollywood Boulevard, and then on to a finish at the Tower Of Terror.

The course was haunted by Disney Villains, and also filled with more Disney characters — like Tower Of Terror Bellhop Goofy — and other entertainment.

Game of Thrones 2x03 Review

Maisie Williams, who plays Arya Stark on HBO’s Game Of Thrones, took a recent vacation to Disney World in Orlando, FL, where she was able to pull the famed sword from the stone at the Magic Kingdom theme park.

Check out the photo here below of the 16-year-old actress at Disney World at the end of August, sporting Minnie Mouse ears and happily lifting the sword.

The Sword in the Stone attraction, based on the 1963 animated Arthurian movie, is located in front of Cinderella’s Golden Carrousel in Fantasyland. Back in the 1990s, there was a “Sword in the Stone Ceremony,” where Merlin would select a child from the crowd to pull the sword out of the stone. Although there’s no longer a show, guests frequently take photos at the park attempting to draw the sword. While the sword is typically firmly in the stone, periodically, a guest is able to remove it.

Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.

Today: Martin Freeman beatboxing in Ali G Indahouse, Spider-Man bathrobes, Harry Potter supercut of all the spells, artist recreation of the magazine covers seen in Blade Runner, how The Avengers should have ended, and Snow White’s Scary Adventures takes it final journey at Disney World, plus Bits Of Doom.
