On November 18-20, 2016, I attended the 2016 D23 Destination D: Amazing Adventures Event at Walt Disney World with Press Credentials. A good deal of news was released at the event, and I had the opportunity to interview Disney Imagineering Legends Marty Sklar and Tony Baxter, as well as a number of other folks.
On November 15-16, 2016, I attended the Walt Disney World Press Event, “Unwrap the Magic” which showcased the Holiday offerings around the Resort. Nearly one full day was devoted to all of the new offerings at Disney Springs, including the new nighttime entertainment: “Starbright Holidays – An Intel Collaboration” featuring 300 Shooting Star show drones equipped with LED lights capable of numerous color combinations flying over Village Lake synchronized with holiday music and narration.
On November 5, 2016, thanks to the Walt Disney World Public Relations team, I attended the Magic Kingdom’s Celebration of the Chicago Cubs’ first World Series Championship since 1908! As a Chicagoan from birth until 2014, it was truly a once in a lifetime experience (well, until they manage to win another)! With Series MVP Ben Zobrist, Addison Russell and Javier Baez on hand, the Magic Kingdom was filled with fellow Cubs fans all along Main Street USA.
