Disney & Parks News: True Love Spurs Mass Vow Renewal at Magic Kingdom; Chocolate Blooms in Epcot

by Leap on February 15, 2013

It's time for the Frog Family's weekly roundup of Disney and Orlando theme park tidbits from the interwebs.

We love comments! Drop us a line below if you have something to share.

This week’s highlights:

  • My personal highlight of the week -- beyond presenting Mommy Frog with a humongous bouquet of lilies (her favorite) -- was seeing photos of the 50 couples who renewed their vows at Cinderella Castle, including one pair who had gotten engaged in Magic Kingdom 10 years ago this month.
  • Not to be outdone in the Valentine's department, Lily surprised Tad with a hand-made Mickey Mouse card from our friend Steph at Crafting in the Rain.
  • Madagascar Live! Operation: Vacation, a live-action musical starring the wild and woolly zoo animals of the super successful "Madagascar" movies, is coming to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
  • Orlando Informer took a look at the gluten-free menu options at Mythos in Islands of Adventure, one of the best-themed restaurants of all the Orlando theme parks.
  • The Disney Parks Blog paid homage to the glorious chocolate trees that are in bloom at the Land Pavillion inside Epcot.
  • Club Penguin has released its first music EP, following in the footsteps of World of Warcraft and Moshi Monsters.
  • Ready to run for your life? Registration opened this week for 'The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10-Miler Weekend' coming up in October.
  • Ed Roland of Collective Soul and Taylor Dayne are headlining the Velvet Sessions in February and March respectively at Universal Orlando’s Hard Rock Hotel.
  • Tad brought us video from Universal’s Mardi Gras festivities, which continue on Saturdays and select nights through April.
  • In baby news, SeaWorld San Diego welcomed an orca calf, weighing in at 300-350 pounds. Despite the 18-month gestation, mommy orca Kasatka only spent an hour in labor.

That’s all for this week. Until next week, happy planning!
