Castle Classics: Favorite Links for Disney Fans July 2017

Castle Classics are Favorite Links for Disney Fans.

Castle Classics: Favorite Links for Disney Fans — Pandora, AT-AT Walkers, Pop Century Renovation, and More

It’s the weekend! Once again, I want to share a round-up of my favorite links for Disney fans.

Since the last issue of Castle Classics, my family spent a couple of days at Walt Disney World to explore the new Pandora – The World of Avatar in Disney’s Animal Kingdom. We’ll be sharing more about our Pandora visit in upcoming posts.

Our first impression? It exceeded all of our expectations. Twice, we stopped by Disney Springs for some eats and treats. Two more highlights: a brief visit with some of the current Disney Parks Moms Panelists (as an alumni, I’m so thrilled about their continued success helping Disney guests) and a two night stay in a newly renovated room at Disney’s Pop Century.
