Last weekend was the Walt Disney World marathon; the winner is Nick Hilton. In the meantime, the NY Times has an article on the costumes that marathon runners wear.
Lots of Epcot changes rolling in: the current O Canada movie starring Martin Short is being replaced by a new movies called Canada Far and Wide. I’ll miss the current movie – Short is hilarious! – but this new movie looks fantastic. The new Awesome Planet movie, screening at The Land pavilion, will star Ty Burrell (Phil from Modern Family). The Epcot Festival of the Arts (opening on January 17th) will be serving up some great food; the Disney Food Blog has some previews. Check out the panna cotta shaped like a rose! And I’m sorry to see the Electric Umbrella restaurant closing at Epcot (it’s one of my favorite Epcot fast food places) but in its stead, the Taste Track stand (close to Test Track) will reopen. Looking forward to my Taste Track burgers!
Over in Hollywood Studios, crews are putting on the final touches to the outside of Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railroad coaster.
